Correct breathing is a good way of focussing and is one of the most valuable tools of meditation. Incorrect breathing can create stress and agitation within the body. Many disciplines have discovered that specific rations of the in and out breath can be used to create very precise changes in our consciousness.
Through using the power of breath with affirmation Dr Patel uses this exercise to bring you to a state of peace and calm in a matter of minutes. The method simply involves altering the length of the outbreath by pausing during it and taking that moment to silently say the affirmation before exhaling again. This can be built this up over a number of days or weeks.
