Helping to heal, one breath at a time


Breathing into understanding… by Carol A. Lampman

ganzen1H100Breathing into understanding…

An exercise using the breath to create a deeper

understanding of any situation in your life.

Have paper and pencil available for recording any understandings following the exercise.  
Find a quiet place to sit where you will not be disturbed.  Allow yourself to become quiet. Connect to your breath.  Take your time and stay with your breath until you are peaceful and centered.  

Using your breath, explore each of the following questions fully.


  • Why did you create this situation?
  • What is this situation teaching you?   
  • What is it that you are learning here?

Imagine that you can hold this situation in our hands. Make it as real as you can.  Then, begin to  breathe light into the situation.  See the light pouring out on your exhale illuminating the questions and pay attention  to any thoughts or feelings that arise while you do this.  

Release the situation to your Higher Self, God or the Universe.  See and feel yourself receiving information, answers or solutions.  See it coming at the right time, which might be now or in the days to follow.   As you continue to Breathe, contemplate the following questions….

  • In what way is this situation going to add to your personal power as you move through it?
  • What are you learning  that will serve you in your future?
  • What qualities are you developing through this experience?

Know that the answers are there for you.  When you feel complete, bring yourself slowly back to the room and journal your experience.
