Breathwork for releasing your grip With Michelle Baker
For years the advice of letting go would not only terrify me,
but it would stir up confusion and anger within me. I thought,
well, if I knew how to let something not so tangible go, and I knew
that I was ready to and I knew what was on the other side of the
release, of course I wouldn't hold on to something that didn't
serve me. I needed to know I would be safe without it, even if the
safety I felt with it was more parasitic than enlivening.
When I began the practice of what I call loosening my grip, I
deepened my capacity to breathe and widened my perspective. Instead
of holding in and contracting, little by little I welcomed in the
idea of softening and expanding. Over time the welcoming came more
naturally. At times I even realized that my grip would be so tight
I couldn't even see what I was actually holding on to so securely;
the pracitce of loosening my grip and inviting the breath to wrap
around it gave me insight into what it even is that I was holding
onto - whether it felt bone deep and ancient or recent and barely
caressing the skin.
Let's breathe into the idea that maybe letting go is exactly that,
inviting in the breath to help loosen the grip of the hand that
holds so protectively to see what it even is that we're holding on
to in the first place. And then maybe, with that witnessing and
that freedom created by the airwaves that will move through you,
what needs to go will, in time, let go.
an active meditation technique that allows you to connect with
your breath and clear your mind and body of stuck energy. It allows
you to feel where your blocks reside and actively move through
them, creating a pathway for an emotional detox.
On one hand it activates you, on the other it allows you to relax
and release tension while liberating limiting beliefs. It can
connect you to your innate wisdom while helping you to open your
heart to honest self-love, self-healing, and self-acceptance.
