Our Breath and Our Emotions

When we have our breath, nobody can steal our peace.

Our breath has a very close relationship with our emotions and feelings. Imagine when we are happy, our breath feels more relieving. But, when we are scared, our breath become interrupted and even stopped. Also when we are sad or crying, our breath cannot flow freely, it feels restricted and difficult to breath.

Our emotions influences the way we breathe as well. When the emotion is fluctuated, often we (directly) hold our breath. When we are surprised, often also we hold our breath. But, when we are relaxed and not under pressure, our breath become free and comfortable. This is how we can see directly and tangibly of the relationship of our breath and our emotion and feelings.

Why does the breath and the emotion have such close relationship?

Technically, from the beginning of the creation. The first cell that is created before the body is created, are the cell of our brain. Which is part of the brain that we called as Limbic System. Limbic system of the brain is the first part that is being created when we live as an embryo. This Limbic system later on create many parts such as hypothalamus, thalamus, amygdala and pituitary gland. This Limbic system is working throughout all process of memories during the lifetime of the cells.

Even when part of the body is not yet perfect, the Limbic system has recorded all of the knowledge from the experiences and founding that is being learned by the senses of the cells. This recording are being made as “feelings”. Therefore the communication form of feelings are the very basic communication of all cells. Even when it is a simple ones.

As the embryo grows, the organs also growing. Inside the womb we are not yet using our respiratory system to breath. We are breathing with our mother. At this moment, our brain also learn throughout all feelings and emotions that is being represented by our caretaker. And finally, when the day we born we start to lean our first breath.

As a baby, we cannot operate our body as its function. We still lean how to move our fingers and toes. What we can do is only breath and use our senses through the language of feelings. Therefore the first and most significant source of knowledge that we learn in this life is: (1) Our Breathing and (2) Our Feelings. As we haven’t yet be able to use words to express our feelings. We use instead our breathing and emotions to express our desire.

The two language of breath and feelings are the language that we use from the beginning of this life as a human being, therefore these two language have very close relationship to each other to support the expression of our physical body.

Hubungan Napas dan Emosi

Ketika napas dimiliki, ketenangan tak bisa dicuri.

Napas kita sangat erat hubungannya dengan keadaan emosi dan perasaan. Coba bayangkan ketika kita sedang senang, napas akan terasa lebih lega. Namun, ketika kita sedang takut, napas akan terasa tersendat-sendat bahkan terhenti sejenak. Begitu juga ketika kita sedang sedih dan menangis, napas tidak bisa berlangsung secara lancar dan sering kali rasanya sangat sulit untuk bernapas.

Emosi sangat erat hubungannya dengan napas. Ketika kita ingin menahan emosi yang bergejolak, sering kali kita (secara langsung) menahan napas. Ketika kita tersentak atau terkejut, sering kali (secara otomatis) kita pun menahan napas. Namun ketika sedang santai dan tidak tertekan, maka napas pun akan terasa lebih melegakan. Begitulah hubungan emosi dan napas. Mengapa begitu dekat hubungan emosi dan napas?

Apabila dirunut dari proses terbentuknya tubuh, maka bagian bertama yang terbentuk dalam tubuh adalah salah satu sel yang menjadi cikal bakal sel otak kita yang berada dalam grup yang disebut Limbic System dalam otak. Limbic system ini antara lain adalah hubungan antara hypothalamus, thalamus, amygdala dan pituitary gland yang menjadi bagian paling dalam pada struktur otak kita. Limbic system adalah bagian otak yang berfungsi dan hubungan kerjanya dengan seluruh ingatan (memory) yang pernah terjadi dalam tubuh selama kehidupan sel dimulai.

Ketika bagian-bagian tubuh belum terbentuk secara sempurna, limbic system telah merekam proses pembelajaran awal yang mana keseluruhan materi ingatan ini direkam dalam bentuk “rasa”. Untuk itulah bentuk komunikasi perasaan sudah mulai tercipta walaupun dalam bentuk sel yang sangat sederhana.

Begitu juga ketika kita sudah mulai mampu menggunakan sistem pernapasan. Pada hari pertama kelahiran kita, hal pertama yang kita mulai pelajari adalah belajar bernapas. Seperti hal terbentuknya sel, pernapasan kita terbentuk disaat kita dilahirkan. Maka pada saat ini, ada dua sumber informasi dan pengetahuan yang kita meiliki sebagai seorang bayi manusia: (1) Perasaan dan (2) Napas. Karena kita belum mampu menggunakan mulut untuk berbicara dan belum mampu mengoperasikan berbagai bagian tubuh, maka hanya bentuk napas dan bahasa perasaan yang kita gunakan pada saat ini (hidup sebagai seorang bayi manusia).

Karena dua bahasa ini sudah kita gunakan sejak dini, maka keduanya memiliki hubungan yang sangat erat dalam hal mengekspresikan diri dalam realita fisik tubuh kita. Itulah sebabnya napas sangat erat hubungannya dengan napas.

Breathing Pattern

What does “breathing pattern” means? Breathing pattern is a systematic rhythm of breath that is being created by our nervous system and our brain to regulate the respiratory system in the “normal” state for day to day life.

This rhythm of breath changes every time and every moment. Based on the situations and conditions that is being presented to the body. For example, when we feel relaxed, our breathing become slow, soft and long. However, when we are faced with some busy tasks or job, our breathing become fast and short. And when we are faced with some shocking condition or phenomena, our breathing stops for little moment. This rhythm is very normal and happens all the time to us. And mostly, we have similar breathing pattern to each other.

The differences of the pattern can be made caused of different life style. For example, when we have busy life style, where everything must be fast, our breath become fast and short. However, when our life style is slow and relaxing, our breathing become longer, softer and it is easier for you to feel your breath. Location where we live also define our breathing rhythm, for example when we live in big cities, full of dust and pollution, our breath become short and restricted. However, when we live in small village, close to nature and surrounded by trees, our breath become longer and freer.

Now the real question is: Do we know what is the quality of our breathing pattern?

Pola Napas

Apakah yang dimaksud dengan “Pola Napas”? Pola Napas (Breathing Pattern) adalah sebuah ritme yang diciptakan oleh sistem saraf tubuh dan otak untuk mengatur pernapasan tubuh secara normal dalam kehidupan sehari-hari.

Ritme pernapasan ini berubah sesuai dengan keadaan dan fenomena yang sedang dihadapi. Ketika tubuh berada dalam keadaan santai, maka pola napas yang terjadi adalah pelan dan halus. Namun ketika tubuh sedang mengalami guncangan sedang, misalnya dalam keadaan terburu-buru, maka pola napas yang terjadi adalah napas yang cepat dan pendek. Dan ketika tubuh berada dalam guncangan hebat, misalnya gertakan atau keadaan yang mencengangkan, maka pola napas yang terjadi adalah napas terhenti. Pola napas seperti ini sangatlah normal terjadi pada tubuh dan kebanyakan dari kita memiliki pola napas yang hampir sama satu dengan lainnya.

Perbedaan pola napas juga terjadi disebabkan oleh gaya hidup. Misalnya, apabila gaya hidup kita selalu sibuk, maka pola napas yang kita miliki biasanya akan menjadi cepat dan pendek. Namun apabila gaya hidup kita santai dan tidak terlalu terburu-buru, maka pola napas kita biasanya lebih halus dan mudah dirasakan. Lokasi tempat tinggal juga mempengaruhi pola napas, misalnya apabila kita tinggal di perkotaan yang penuh debu, maka pola napas kita menjadi pendek dan mudah terhenti. Namun bisa kita tinggal di desa yang penuh dengan pepohonan maka pola napas kita menjadi lebih panjang dan pelan.

Pertanyaan selanjutnya adalah: apakah kita sudah dapat merasakan pola napas yang kita miliki di kehidupan sehari-hari?

Penting Tau! Pola Napas.

Kebanyakan dari kita belum menyadari satu hal utama yang paling penting dalam hidup yaitu: NAPAS.

Apabila kita tidak memiliki napas, maka kita tidak bisa hidup. Bisa saja kita tidak makan dan tidak minum dalam satu hari. Namun, apabila kita tidak bernapas dalam 10 menit saja, maka detak jantung akan menjadi tidak stabil, dan akhirnya berhenti bekerja.

Apakah Kita sudah menyadari pentingnya PERNAPASAN? Belum saja kita pelajari teknik-teknik pernapasan yang bisa kita latih untuk menjaga kebugaran tubuh. Namun, untuk memulai pelatihan tersebut tentu harus kita sadari manfaat dan pentingnya napas itu sendiri.

Dalam hidup ini kita sering sekali lebih dipusingkan oleh repotnya kegiatan dan tugas sehari-hari. Belum lagi tugas kantor yang menumpuk, ditambah kewajiban di rumah, ditambah kewajiban kepada anak, suami, istri dan keluarga. Pikiran kita sudah penuh dengan hal-hal yang kita “anggap” esensial. Namun satu hal penting yang harus tetap dijaga: NAPAS, tidak pernah kita pikirkan. Mengapa begitu? Mengapa kita pernah memikirkan napas? Kalau memang napas itu penting, seharusnya secara “otomatis” kita memikirkannya. Namun tidak. Mengapa?

Hal tersebut disebabkan karena, sistem pernapasan manusia adalah satu-satunya sistem dalam tubuh yang dapat tetap berfungsi secara “normal” dalam keadaan sadar maupun tidak sadar. Dalam keadaan sadar maksudnya ketika kita menyadari proses terjadinya pernapasan tersebut, artinya kita menyadari keluar dan masuknya napas. Sedangkan proses tidak sadar, ketika kita memikirkan pekerjaan rumah dan pekerjaan kantor, napas pun tetap berjalan dengan “normal” sehingga tidak perlu kita mengatur napas setiap saat.

Jika pernapasan terjadi secara tidak sadar, maka napas akan membuat sebuah “pola napas” yang akan terjadi secara otomatis. Pola napas ini berubah sesuai dengan keadaan yang sedang dihadapi. Misalnya, napas akan tiba-tiba terhenti ketika kita sedang bepikir keras, kemudian akan kembali secara semula ketika kita sedang santai. Hal-hal seperti ini terjadi dalam tubuh secara otomatis, sehingga kebanyakan dari kita kurang menyadarinya.

Karena dalam hidup kita lebih sering memberikan prioritas pada pekerjaan maupun hal-hal lain seperti keadaan uang, maupun keadaan benda dan perabot rumah, maka napas kita tidak menjadi prioritas dalam hidup sehari-hari.

Healing Breath May 2019

Breathing is the biggest part of our life and yet most time we ignore it. We never really know is the quality of our breath. One of the thing that we don’t understand can be understood by learning about our breathing.

Breathing can help to be a happier person. But, this needs effort! On this workshop we will discuss about how breath connect to the condition of our body and how breath relate to many of our material experience both ways: positive and negative.

When we deal with negative reality, the mind become unstable and the breath become unstable, and the organ become unstable. This memories is saved within our material body. If this conditions are not being realized, and not being understood, it could bring greater problem and illness.

Happiness is a conscious process, we cannot be ignorant and be happy at the same time. This what we learn during the workshop!
