Breathwork is a very subtle psychotherapeutic technique. Due to the subtle nature of the breathwork many people engage in a couple of breathwork sessions and feel that they no longer need them because they are not seeing dramatic changes. While you might not see sudden changes happening from your breathwork exercise there are subtle changes that are happening.
If you are engaging in breathwork exercises or breathwork sessions here is a look at how you can tell if they are working for you.
Are You Surrendering Yourself? Many people enter breathwork with a closed mind. They believe that it will do them no good and that it is a waste of time. Their closed off nature causes the breathwork exercises to not work for them because they have closed their Ego off to releasing and stress or negative energies. If you are wondering if breathwork is working for you ask yourself do you enter each session with an open mind and try to allow yourself to cleanse yourself of the negative thoughts and emotions?
Are There Physical Benefits? Try to sit back and see if you notice any physical benefits that come from breathwork. The physical benefits can range from decreased amounts of stress, less tension that is held in the muscles and other parts of the body, a relaxed overall feeling and an increased sense of energy. Many people who engage in breathwork will often report that they are feeling less fatigued throughout the day. Try to consider the physical benefits if you are not sure breathwork is working for you.
