Breath is the rhythm of the life. It connects your subconscious and conscious by acting as a bridge. If you observe you find that your breathing follows certain patterns, which vary as your experiences and emotional states vary. You hold your breath when surprised and also when you want to lift something heavy. Breathing is also related to your attention span. When you are angry or excited your breath becomes rapid. When you are calm breathing is calm too. By altering your breathing patterns you can easily and effectively alter your emotional states for good.
Eastern mystics and yogis realized importance of breathing many millenniums ago and made breathing practices part of everyday life. In Yoga, they are known as Pranayama. Prana stands for Life Force and Ayama stands for the Expansion. Rhythmic breathing is a type of Pranayama which uses some type of counting or mantra to help your breath fall into a natural rhythm. This releases toxins from the body and also helps cathartic purging out of subconscious emotions, thus fostering the healing and increasing positivity.

Teaching Kids and My Grandmother
My grandmother was illiterate village woman. She never went to school. She is a sweet lady and she wants to read religious scriptures. Though she is busy most of the times, I try to teach her reading, a bit every now and then when she is free. She becomes very happy as she recognizes words and letters.
Sometimes some young lads come to take help on their assignments. Some of them are facing emotional or spiritual crisis and I try to listen to them attentively. I try to offer them some help and guidance to make their life situation better.
Sometimes people come with their problems to take counsel on matters related to marriage, career and life. I have been doing some research in Astrology for about a decade now and take a great interest in observing new patterns and learning by reading new horoscopes. I guide people by suggesting remedies for negative Karma and also recommend them meditation and breathing for most of the cases.
Surrendering to life force as it works on your body and mind. You observe and follow the movements of energy. This helps release the energy trapped in the emotions and you feel rejuvenated and relieved. This also boosts the vibration frequency of your immune system.
Watching Films and TV Shows
I am connoisseur of mystery, thrillers, sci-fi and romance. I love Mystery in particular the most. I try to find good mystery films and watch them. I also like some sitcoms which have good humor.
I take frequent showers with cold water. I need to take at least 2-3 showers every day even in winters. It has been so since last few years. I like the touch of the water and many creative ideas come when I am taking bath.
