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.

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?
