Breathe Peace and Heal-Mindful Awareness Through Meditation


I attended a party one night using a buddy and her boyfriend, when I was in my early twenties. My friend that night got drunk, really drunk! During the ride home from the celebration, the friend fought to keep her gut contents down. My friend that night was extremely ill. The friend groaned and moaned about how her belly threatened to heave it up at anytime and felt. My friend that night did not, yet!

Afterwards, the friend thanked me for helping her get through the ordeal of attempting to prevent vomiting. Well, what did I do that was so darn astonishing that it prevented a young woman who seldom drank from heaving to that extreme?

The physiologist told her to breathe. It absolutely was something I learned at a time once i wasn’t feeling so well myself. The final thing myself needed to experience was to have my previous food and drink ingestion purge out of my belly flowing against the law of gravitation.


The physiologist remember the encounter I had when I felt nauseous. It was during an encounter such as this that myself happened to stumble across the idea of deep breathing. The physiologist picture it was the feeling of annoyance that made me take a deep breath that enabled me to experience relief from the nausea. Being irritated I was ill to my tummy and feeling tremendous distress and helplessness, I took a heavy breath just to exhale my discouragements. Myself mean, who would like to throw up anyhow? It’s a violent autonomic reflex response to something. It’s not the kind of thing a lot of folks see as really being a enjoyable encounter. Till this day, the physiologist do whatever I can to prevent it at any cost.

Myself think I offered this bit of body awareness to my buddy that night when she was in demand and found value in stumbling upon it. The amazing thing is it not only worked for my friend that night but she gave it a go. What did the friend have to lose except, obviously, her belly bile?

There’s some thing about respiration that causes the entire body to loosen. I’m not a physiologist yet, I know a thing or two about bodily functions. Essentially what happens when we inhale, the diaphragm (a big, dome-shaped muscle in the base of the rib cage) relaxes going down farther into the lower chest cavity. The reverse happens when we exhale. The diaphragm contracts pushing up into the higher area of the chest cavity.

Relief is found by our guts from muscle pressure and various other organs we breathe deeply into our abdomens. This really is occasionally called Belly Breathing. As we discharge the atmosphere from the belly up into the torso and outside, all employed while the diaphragm contracts pushing up in the lungs, abdominal muscles relax. Exhaling supplies abdominal space for the belly to rest in a relaxed state for a minute. The longer the exhale, the more time the gut has to relax. For anyone fighting in their stomach region with nauseating pressure, this is a welcomed relief.
