The Rebirthing Process, also known as Breathwork, Conscious Connected Breathing, Conscious Energy Breathing and Intuitive Energy Breathing teaches a simple, relaxing breathing rhythm that enables you to restore the power of the breath and the ability to breathe Energy as well as air. As a result of free and full breathing, you are able to gently release the symptoms of physical and emotional stress as well as limiting psychological conditions. This results in an expanded sense of self love, creativity and inner peace.
Please read the following quotes to give you some idea:
To quote Leonard Orr, with whom I trained: It is the art of learning to breathe from the Breath Itself. Rebirthing is perhaps the most valuable self-healing ability that humans can learn. We can not have disease and relaxation in the same space at the same time. Relaxation is the ultimate healer. Every breath induces relaxation. Therefore, breathing is the basic healer. Conscious Energy Breathing is the most natural healing ability of all. This ability involves merging the inhale with the exhale in a gentle relaxed rhythm in an intuitive way that floods the body with Divine Energy.
The Rebirthing Process allows you to correct the breathing mechanism that has been restricted through accumulated tensions and fears. It restores our natural breathing capacity. One can switch easily out of the irregular, shallow breathing pattern associated with chronic anxiety and stress into a deep, steady confident breathing rhythm that provides an efficient oxygen supply.
Each cell of the body and each internal organ, especially the central nervous system and the brain, (which requires 20% of the total oxygen intake) all depend on a constantly rich source of oxygen to function at peak performance. Oxygen is absorbed into the body via the lungs and exhaled as carbon dioxide, thus eliminating 70% of harmful body toxins and waste material. Considering that we breath approximately 23,060 times daily, why not make the most of this vital function?
As Leornard Orr says: Rebirthing also means to unravel the birth-death cycle and to incorporate the body and mind into the conscious Life of the Eternal Spirit - to become a conscious expression of the Eternal Spirit. This involves healing the eight biggies of human trauma, which are the birth trauma, the parental disapproval syndrome, specific negatives, the unconscious death urge, karma from past lives, the religion trauma, the school trauma, and senility, etc. Visit his website www.rebirthingbreathwork.com for more information on his related teachings
The Rebirthing Process is based on the philosophy that thought is creative. Combining breathing with high quality thoughts can produce positive and lasting changes in your life.
Nurturing our positive thoughts supports us and expands our joy and vitality. Holding onto and suppressing negative, fearful thoughts creates tensions, unhappiness and dis-ease.
The Rebirthing Process helps to identify and dissolve negative, suppressed thoughts and allows us to replace them with thoughts of self esteem and love.
The process is a safe and gentle way of reversing personal limitations. It is not a religion, nor a therapy, nor a cure. It is an effective self help tool that many people have used to get what they could not get from doctors, therapists and spiritual teachers.
Each session is unique for each person. The person lies down in a comfortable position and is coached and guided in gentle rhythmic breathing pattern in which the inhale is connected to the exhale without a pause. An average session lasts about two hours.
What is a session like?
Every session with a Rebirther involves both consultation and breathing. Initially, you discuss what you know about your birth, childhood, and family patterns, and how they may be affecting your life. We will discuss your current issues from the perspective of resolving them by changing your unconscious beliefs.
How do You begin?
The first level of rebirthing calls for a series of ten private sessions with a trained Rebirther. Initially, one session a week is recommended.
The purpose of this is to build a trusting relationship with one Rebirther and to maintain that relationship long enough to realise and integrate the cumulative results.
I have trained under both Leonard Orr and Sondra Ray the two founders of Rebirthing Breathwork and I quote Sondra Ray as she explains the whole rebirthing process so well:
REBIRTHING IS SACRED
by Sondra Ray
Rebirthing is Sacred. Once I thought it was a scientific process. Once I thought it was therapy just to heal my birth trauma. I did not understand it all then. But one thing for sure, it NEVER thought it was silly. I always knew it was the hottest thing on the planet. That is how I always felt about it, right from the beginning.
Rebirthing is like a sacrament because you are partaking of the Holy Spirit. Rebirthing is more than just breathwork. It is taking in Divine Energy into your body in such a way that God is making love to you.
Rebirthing is Life-giving. It can even bring Youthing of the body. It brings spontaneous healings. It brings joy. It brought me everything I ever wanted. That is why I became one of the first Rebirthers in the world. I wanted to spread the news to everyone. The only reason someone might not want all of that would have to be fear; fear of letting go, fear of danger, fear of death, or in general fear of slaying the ego. People may fear rebirthing because of these ideas in their heads, and yet the irony is that Rebirthing will REMOVE those very fears. You pump them out on the exhale. Rebirthing continues to take away my fears and the fears of my clients and friends who have stuck with it. We consider it a wonderful life long spiritual path.
To me, it is one of the ultimate gifts from God. Rebirthing is Drinking the Divine. It is also drinking the everlasting nectar of Immortality. When I took Rebirthing to Russia, the doctors there scientifically proved that it produces rejuvenation of the body. So Rebirthing is like discovering the Fountain of Youth. It is having the gentle breath of bliss and the power of vitality charging the body.. It is the thrill of thrills and the serenity of peace at the same time. In this simple breathing process, one can permanently release tensions in the body, symptoms of pain and disease, fears of failure, fears of success, fears of love, fears of death and the beliefs and programming of old age. It will wash out misery . It is the ultimate Cosmic Bath!
Rebirthing is for everyone. No matter who you are or where you are on the path or on the planet. It will take you higher than you ever thought you could go. You will enter the Banquet Hall of Eternity. You will wonder how you ever lived without it. You will drink the everlasting nectar of joy and your heart will awaken to eternal passion. Rebirthing is something you will want to do for life. Eventually , after your rebirther says you are ready, you can learn to rebirth yourself. Initially you should plan to have ten sessions with a rebirther of your choice. You will hear people talk about dry rebirthing and group rebirthing. Dry rebirthing is done lying down on the bed or floor (clothed) next to your rebirther who guides your session.
Group rebirthing is done in a large room where a group of people (who have been well prepared) lie down together with the guidance of a very experienced set of rebirthers. This is best done during a two day workshop. You should continue dry rebirthing until you have worked out the bulk of your birth trauma and a breath release has occurred. Then you can learn to rebirth yourself.
Barbara Marciniak says that awareness and use of the breath are the essential KEYS for understanding and developing the higher mind during this astounding spiritual evolution. She states that we can use the breath to Stabilize ourselves to have more energy to enhance our immune systemto create beneficial brain waves to activeate transcendental knowledge from the Source to reach higher frequencies
Besides all that one must add to heal ones body to release tension to have better relationships to rejuvinate. Love Sondra www.sondraray.com
Breathwork is a kind of alternative therapy that uses breath awareness and conscious breathing exercises and technique to bring about growth, change and well being in the body, mind and spirit. Breathwork is a kind of holistic healing technique that is complimentary to all other approaches to health care.
Breathwork in physical terms means the learning of proper breathing exercises and techniques that maximize the physical potential of the body. They make an individual more alert and more aware of his or her body. In a spiritual sense it is a method to approach the psyche through the body by controlling breathing.
It is an invaluable tool for growth on the spiritual path, for personal healing and as a form of psychotherapy. Breath awareness acts as a primary catalyst for us to get in touch with the inner world of our psyche. All humans have some amount of unconscious trauma that restricts their growth in life. Whether the trauma is caused due to unconscious conditioning, the birthing process or emotional unhappiness it can all be accessed using breathwork.
Breathwork helps release individuals from the grip of past traumas and frees them to lead a fulfilling life and focus on self-actualization.
Breathwork has developed rapidly over the past two decades. Rebirthing, Conscious Breathing, Holotropic Breathwork, Vivation, Transformational Breathwork, Yoga, Pranayama, Tai Chi, Chi Kung are all various techniques of breathwork.
Breathwork is thus a simple, safe, gentle and proven technique to access not only the inner physical self but also the higher spiritual self.
Rebirthing breathwork is a technique that uses circular breath or conscious connected breathing to bring in more life force energy, or what the Chinese call ‘Chi’, into the body. The extra energy helps unlock emotions that may have resulted from severe traumas that have been suppressed. It can even go back as far as birth trauma. Hence the term ‘rebirthing’.
A Rebirther is a trained person who is your guide and coach as you learn the breathing techniques. By expelling toxins both mental and physical from the body using the excess energy, the individual becomes open to love, joy, health and prosperity.
A rebirthing session generally lasts 2 hours where 1 hour is devoted to the circular breathing alone. It can take anywhere between ten to twenty sessions for an individual to rebirth himself or herself.
Application of Breathwork
The increased energy available to the body via breathwork is the source of healing. Breathwork is effective in helping individuals overcome many ailments. In addition to overcoming physical limitations, the true application of breathwork has been found to be in the realm of the unconscious mind.
Breathwork is used to help individuals free their minds from stress, worry, anxiety, fear and negative response to trauma. By releasing the negative, breathwork makes space for positive feelings of love, joy and happiness.
Breathwork is a holistic healing technique that is compatible with any other technique. Indeed, it can help enhance the positive effects of other alternative therapies like Qigong, Yoga and Meditation.
Breathwork is thus the key to peak performance, optimum health and ultimate potential.
“The Discovery of Inner Space by using your Breath.
Because breath has no form as such, it has since ancient time been equated with spirit-the formless one Life…The fact that the breath has no form is one of the reasons why breath awareness is an extremely effective way of bringing space into your life, of generating consciousness. It is an excellent meditation object precisely because it is not an object…Being aware of your breath forces you into the present moment-the key to all inner transformation. Whenever you are conscious of the breath, you are absolutely present…” Eckhart Tolle
About Breathwork: It is a gentle powerful technique that helps us release emotional and physical tension while supporting our intention to expand and allowing us to improve health and vitality .Through a deep connected breath, our body releases stress and tension and facilitates the access and release of old patterns in a gentle and safe way.
