Is Transformational Breath® dangerous?

We all breath, it is not dangerous to breath.  It is good to breathe, deeply,openlyand frequently. This is the ultimate goal of Transformational Breath®. Breathing correctly brings more life and more energy to the individual.

Some believe that Transformational Breath® is dangerous because by breathing in a continuous cycle the C02 levels could be lowered and cause hyperventilation. Whilst being facilitated you are coached to exhale in a relaxed fashion, with training, the CO2 levels are not depleted and the oxygen levels are increased. Transformational Breath® oxygenates the blood which has a positive chemical response in the body.

Is it alright for individuals with health problems to do Transformational Breath®

Many individuals with a wide diversity of health issues have safely benefited from Transformational Breath®. It is important for participants to inform their Facilitator of their health issues before a session.It is always recommendeded that an individual check with their licensed health care provider. Breathing better is a great accompaniment to better health and healing any condition.

Do I still need to exercise if Transformational Breath® can increase my oxygen and decrease my stress?

Although it offers some of the same benefits, Transformational Breath® is not a replacement for a regular exercise program. Neither does exercise offer all of the benefits of Transformational Breath®, since the intention and energy generated during a breath session is not all used up by the demands of physical stress. The energy generated by the sheer act of circular breathing remains available to heal various aspects of the body, mind, and spirit, according to the intention set for the session by the individual.

Aerobic exercise and other breathing practices usually become much easier to master once the breath has opened, transformed the body, mind, and spirit energies. Many people who exercise do not have an open breath, and this can thereby create strain and over-exert trying to give the body the oxygen it needs. Sometimes the breathing required to fuel the body during exertion can bring up unpleasant feelings and emotions from the subconscious mind. Most people stop breathing during exercise without realizing it in order to avoid the conscious awareness of such uncomfortable feelings. Once such feelings have been transformed and the breath mechanism is opened up, resistance to exercise tends to drop away. Maintaining a regular regimen can then become an enjoyable reality.

I am pregnant, can I have a Transformational Breath® session?

Many midwives, doctors, and mothers have reported that Transformational Breath® is a very good practice for both the mother and the baby. Bringing oxygen into the system is a positive thing. Both the mother and unborn child need good quality oxygen in sufficient quantities during pregnancy. No one has ever indicated that breathing would harm an unborn child in any way other than if the mother had a lot of toxins in her system, for example, from heavy drug use. The breathing there could cause it to “dump” a lot of the toxins right away and the baby would be subjected to some of those toxins.

The physical, mental, and emotional benefits of Transformational Breath are very valuable during pregnancy. As the pregnancy progresses, the respiratory system is compromised by the growing baby. Transformational Breath® allows the system to compensate for this condition. It is good to breathe through fears and trust the process of life that is happening. The breath and life-force are an integral part of pregnancy. The use of the integrated breath during the labour contractions will help integrate the intensity of sensations.

During pregnancy, especially the last trimester, we make sure that the woman is comfortable. Our Facilitators are taught to use certain techniques for pregnant women and avoid other techniques to maintain safety in the session.

How does Transformational Breath® affect the emotions?

The process may bring forth repressed or supressed emotions which can be integrated and resolved. Participants may experience joy or sadness during a session. The Transformational Breath® session promotes low energy vibrational patterns to entrain with higher vibrational states. Former negative feelings stored in the cellular memory are often transformed into feelings of acceptance and gratitude for having experienced the situation that produced the original perceptions and emotional responses. Individuals have reported feeling more positive in their emotional states, with less stress and a sense of feeling free.

What is the relationship between Transformational Breath® and spiritual growth?

You do not need to have any specific beliefs, religious or otherwise, to experience Transformational Breath®. The Transformational Breath Foundation does not promote any religious belief system. Instead, it embraces all paths that lead an individual to connect with Source and to the full expression of our spiritual nature. The process of Transformational Breath® may shift your belief system. Virtually all who engage in Transformational Breath® find that their spiritual growth is accelerated, as awareness expands. In the final analysis, your beliefs will be formed and re-formed by your life experiences and the insights you glean from any spiritual practice. Transformational Breath® accelerates this process.

Is there an optimum way to breathe, as we go about our daily business?

It is not recommended to use the circular pattern we use in the sessions, but rather to be aware of our breathing throughout the day. We need to make sure we are using our full respiratory system and that we do not hold our breath. We encourage individuals to breathe as fully and keep the breath flowing in and out without long pauses. This will keep us open, energized, and connected. After doing Transformational Breath® we become more aware of the times and circumstances that cause us to close our breath. We can make a conscious effort to keep our breath open and work through the issues or feelings that close our breathing down.
