Breathe Out Negativity And Stress!

If you have never tried combining your breathing exercises with the use of colours I highly recommend you begin.

It can really aid in eliminating negative feelings and go a long way towards overcoming anxious situations where you may require that little extra shove to step out into the unknown.


For many years I often let difficult situations get the best of me, ruining my performances in martial arts competitions for example.

Fear would overwhelm me and dark clouds of self doubt would swamp my mind. This saps physical strength in a massive way!

It leaves you feeling helpless.

Obviously such feelings are felt in many, many, situations not just in sporting situations. For some, they are debilitating to the extent that they won't even try to step beyond these feelings anymore as they feel they have no way of controlling them whatsoever.

Well, they do!

Many people realise that breathing can help control feelings and emotions (although not many use it for this purpose). Few, though, actually think of combining it with colours to aid in taking control when their emotions are threatening to prevent them achieving a goal, whatever it may be.


If you think for a minute of negativity black imagery may well come to mind.

Positive thoughts often bring with them vibrant light colours.

If you amalgamate your breath with colours you can literally take in positive colours and expel (with conviction!) negative ones.

If you relate expelling darkness with expelling fear about a certain activity you are scared of (and this is a very personal thing and it is hugely different from person to person ) this will help lessen that fear and doubt.

You literally breathe out your fear (the dark) leaving you with the courage (light energy that you've breathed in) to take control and at least try!

Obviously if you are an anxious or stressed person you may use this method to rid yourself of anxiousness and stress.

NOTE- You can never rid yourself of fear. It is innate in the human body and is needed. Such a deep breathing exercise that you will find below is more about focusing on the positive and not allowing the negativity and doubt to be the main thing you concentrate upon.


Try this simple method below and feel how it can positively change your perception on something you are fearful or negative about. Really expel dark clouds and associate this with ridding yourself of doubt about your own personal challenge.

1. Sit or stand comfortably.

2. Breathe in deeply and ensure the breath is going deep into

your body. Check for undue tension in the shoulders and for

whether they are rising up unnecessarily.

3. Breathe in through your nose and out through the mouth.

4. Initially perform ten breaths in this fashion. You should

now be relaxed and receptive to the next stage.

5. As you inhale now imagine a vibrant pure light entering

your body and filling it. Make the inhale slow so you

can imagine your body filling up with this positive feeling.

6. On the exhale bring into mind dark clouds that are being

expelled with a passion from your lungs. As you do so

relate this to your feared task, event, or whatever it

may be.

7. Take the time to perform this five to ten times. Having done

so you should be left feeling light of body and mind with an

attitude that is now much more receptive to the idea of

attempting the difficult task you are homing in on.

Give this a go right now just to get a feel for how it can make you feel. Truth be told you can use it to simply feel great or, as suggested above, to overcome mental sticking points in your journey to achieve goals or overcome anxiety!
