Letting Go, Breath by Breath

min read

Life begins with an inhale, and ends with an exhale. And unless you have lungs of steel, most people can’t live more than a few minutes without the rhythm of inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale.

The good news is our respiratory system does this for us- otherwise, how would we sleep, or do anything that requires concentration? The bad news is we usually forget the power of our breath, and don’t take full advantage of all our breath has to offer!

So in this article, I’m gonna cover the brilliance of your breath and 4 ways to use your breathing to your advantage.

An Exchange of Information

Now here’s something else we don’t often think about-

There’s information stored in everything– in the air we breath, the water we drink, and food we ingest. It’s not good or bad, it’s just information. And as we grow and evolve, the old information becomes stale, stagnant, and irrelevant.

And this stale, irrelevant, and low vibrational information gets stuck in our aura, in our mind, and in our tissues- leading to low energy, attracting low vibrational people and situations, and even premature death.


“Healing is merely an exchange of information – to remove distortions or outdated programs stored within the aura and replace it with energetic harmonious new information.”

 – Kelly Kingston, founder of happy and well®

So, when we consciously use our breath to let go of old information and inhale the new, we get to reprogram our entire body and being.

How cool is that?

4 Ways to Use Our Breath to Heal

In Quest 5 of Kelly’s newest book, Naked Skin Deep*, Kelly guides you through several different breathing techniques and ways to take advantage of the healing power of your breath.

1.Getting Rid of Impurities

Start your breath work and now visualise the air inhaled as ‘pranic light’ and exhale as ‘smoke’ all the impurities of the body and mind.
If done on a daily basis you will feel revitalised and full of energy.
This method also assists in cleansing your energy field from negativity, which we pick up from our environment.

2.Breathing Away Pain

Ancient cultures put great emphasis on the flow of life force energy in the physical body. If the life force got ‘stuck’ in some parts of the body they thought of pain as a wave of energy, which could be set free and allowed to flow out of the body.
Imagination is your strongest healing agent:
When you breathe in, visualise an abundance of life energy from around you, and when you exhale, direct the prana (energy/oxygen) to the painful area to promote healing.
Inhale again and imagine that the energy is going to drive all the pain out of your body.
Repeat the cycles at least seven times, and rest.
(Start again, if you need to.)


Using the breathing technique and intent, shift your breathing mainly through the left nostril of your nose and exhale normally. It will activate your right side of the brain and relax the left side of the brain to be more cooperative for intuition and healing work.

(If the intention is not strong enough just close the right side of the nostrils with your finger to help.)


Any time during the day you would benefit from breathing, just set some time aside to recharge. Or at night, start your procedure and continue until you fall asleep.

It will also assist to quiet your brain from chatting (in cases of anxiety, worry or insomnia). As well as helping to take the focus off grief-filled thoughts.

Okey dokey. Now that you have a peek into the power of our breath, and some suggestions for how and when to use breath work-

What could you see yourself getting out of a short, daily practice? Or if you already have a breathing practice, what are some of your favourite techniques, and what benefits are you seeing?
