How To Do Humming Bee Breath
- Choose a comfortable sitting posture or sit in a chair. You could sit on the floor and bend your knees up in front of you. Rest your elbows on your knees and use your thumbs to close the small flaps on the front of your ears. let your spine float taller, and allow your heart center to open, but don’t stick your chest out.
- Close your eyes and bring your attention inward to your belly, your heart, your throat and then your head.
Inhale slowly to a comfortable fulness. Keep your lips closed, but the back of the mouth cavity open. Hold this breath for a moment.
- Exhale through your nostrils, and make a humming sound in the palate of the mouth. Push in at the upper abdomen, keeping your chest still and your jaw relaxed. This is one round. Repeat for ten rounds or continue for several minutes. Hum on every exhalation, until the vibrations spread throughout your face.
- It is important to inhale and exhale unhurriedly. Don’t rush into the next exhalation but take your time as you slowly fill the lungs with air.
- Now move your awareness just to the humming sound. You may like to experiment with different pitches until you find one that feels pleasurable. Feel the vibration of the sound ripple through the brain. Observe the vibrations in the face, throat, chest, and the rest of your body.
- Sit quietly when you are finished. Keep your eyes closed. You may sense the sound vibration pulsing through your body for some time. Don’t move! The stiller you sit, the deeper your powers of observation.
