Take 5 Breathing


The power of breath is behind every BodyTalk session I facilitate. You'll often hear me say, "Take deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth" as we are implementing a shift in your body/mind. I am convinced that the breath is the vehicle for shift, so I've created a simple daily breathing routine to share with you. I call it Take 5 Breathing and here's how it works:


1. Hold palms in front of your chest facing each other but about an inch apart. Connect your pinky finger to pinky finger, making contact with the full pad of the finger, and take a full deep breath. Hold those fingers together during the rest of the breathing.


2. Next, press your ring finger together in similar fashion, taking another deep breath. Continue to connect and hold each finger as you take one full breath.


3.When complete, you will have your fingers all touching. Press your palms together in a prayer-like pose at the heart. You now have a clear mind and a more connected body. You can set and intention for what you'd like to experience next or say a more meditative prayer at that time.


And that is it! The Take 5 Breathing technique subtly addresses meridians, reflex points, left/right side of body, midline of brain, as well as stimulates the lungs, lymph, and heart. Balanced thinking, emotional health, and general well-being can be achieved by regularly doing this technique. I created this to be a support for children and adults alike, so use it with your kids! We all need self care tools in this face paced world. Slow it down and shift your vibration with this simple solution for stress.


SO Much Love,

Carolyn

"Moments of joy returning to families!! Here's a testimonial from Session #2 for J., age 8, dealing with Autism. I did a distance Bodytalk session one night after he went to bed. I shared results from first session last week. Here's what happened this time: "This is so cool. So last night before you called, J. had a super bad night and ended up going to bed crying and mad because he wouldn't do his homework that was taking 2 hours to do like 8 problems. It was discouraging and my parents were exhausted and sad watching the whole ordeal. BUT... I woke up at 3am to find J. standing by my bedside and he said "mommy" and gave me a big hug.... Amazing right??? It was like an out of body experience! Then he laid down by me and snuggled his head towards me and let me rub his back which never happens- then he looked at me with the most genuine deep smile that came straight from his soul and laughed and his body kind of got the shivers when he layed back down and he giggled again. I haven't seen him smile like that for a long time - it's like his old self was shining through. It made me think of how you said his cells were doing the happy dance and thought maybe he just couldn't contain himself.... it was seriously so amazing and beautiful! I also remembered asking him at 3am something about what he was doing up and he said something about doing homework which I ignored and just snuggled him but when I woke up I found his homework COMPLETED on the counter! Seriously so amazing.... Thank you for being so in tune to help heal my family- I keep thinking it's going to be baby steps but instead they are giant leaps!!! Hugs!"
