How To Breathe-A Book By Ashley Neese

“Working with your dreams is a very informative way to connect t the subconscious. Certain breathwork practices naturally lead themselves to working with the subconscious. The Dreaming Breath is a gentle practice for the evening that can be a fun way to release residual stress in the mind and body, and direct or engage with your dreams.”

I have never been one to record my dreams, let alone remember them. Although, there are the few instances where I wake up and can recall bits & pieces of a dream I may have had from the night before. Vivid dreams are far and few for me personally. I find the Dreaming Breath a great way to unwind at the end of the day and aid me with my sleep; who knows maybe the more I engage in this breathing practice the more dreams I may remember. I can say I defiantly use this one when I am having trouble relaxing at night to release the stress of the day.

Do this technique lying down, allow 15 mins or until you fall asleep

  • Get in bed, lie down on your back, and make yourself comfortable.
  • Set your intention.
  • Begin breathing in and out through your nose slowly for a few rounds.
  • Next, extend your inhale and exhale, allowing for natural rhythm to take shape.
  • Continue extending your inhales and exhales until they are as long as possible without stress or strain on the body or respiratory system.
  • Repeat practice until you fall asleep.
  • Journal first thing in the morning about your dreams.
