Collarbone Breathing to Release Feeling of Being Stuck
Excerpted from Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology
How it Works
Cross your hands over your chest with your fingers under your collarbones. Breathe halfway in and hold, then breathe all the way in and hold; breathe halfway out and hold, then breathe all the way out and hold. You repeat the breathing sequence, this time with your knuckles under your collarbones.
Why It Works
By using energy techniques like the Collarbone Breathing, you help your energy system rebalance. This allows you to get un-stuck quickly and easily. There are a few things happening in this deceptively simple technique.
By crossing our arms, we are crossing the corpus callosum, which helps us feel grounded. By placing our hands across our chest with hands under collarbones, we are activating our meridian system ― particularly the K-27 point, which helps reduce anxiety. By breathing slowly, we are slowing our brainwaves, which helps us relax. Moving our tongue up and down also stimulates the flow of energy along our meridian system.
If you haven’t given the Collarbone Breathing technique a try yet, do it now. Take notice of how your body feels both before and after you use the technique. This technique is just one of many you can use to get un-stuck.
