Huna Breathing Techniques for Grounding, Energizing and Calming

There are four phases to the breath: 1) Inhalation 2) Pause 3) Exhalation and 4) Pause again before your next inhalation. By controlling these phases you can activate and increase different energies to support you in whatever you need to do. As you begin to understand how this works, you will realize how powerful and useful this simple technique can be. I learned this Huna breathing technique in a training from the Huna Research Institute. Looking at the picture, we see four elements and the four phases of the breath.

Stress is a natural part of life, but only when it is counter-balanced by relaxation. Think of a wave.
