I have shared some of why I love the breathing track so much, and how its changed my life more than I could imagine, but evidently, others have noticed too.

Yesterday my boyfriend and his mother were talking, and said I seem the happiest and most peaceful I have been in my whole life. The reason I think the breathing track is so effective is it touches my core issues. I spent time in 12 step programs, CBT, therapy and other groups. I feel the focus of these were on the symptoms, why I drank or why I had severe GAD. The track deals with the cause. It heals parts of me that nothing else worked for. No person, kind words or behavoral change worked as profoundly as the track. The acceptance and surrender practiced with the breathing track, touches all other parts of my life. I can let things flow, and in turn since I am not trying to control every detail through fear, things are falling into place better than ever imagined.

I also find I have immense gratitude for the little things, I went food shopping last night, and loved it. The fact that I get to go food shopping. This is no longer an anxiety riddled chore. Its enjoyable.

Oh one other thing – I always considered myself an impatient person. Well, Marty & I were talking today and impatience is the symptom. The cause is doubt and fear. That if something is left alone for a certain amount of time, something bad will happen (like my childhood) these realizations are so comforting. I thought relinquishing control was terrifiying, and in fact it is reassuring to the fact that I am not and never was ‘crazy’. Thanks for reading!

    Hi, Kaitlots,
    It’s so encouraging to hear that the breathing track has changed your life. What an inspiration for others. Sometimes friends and family see the changes in us before we see those changes ourselves.

    My best friend Wanda recently underwent trauma therapy and underwent dramatic change in just fourteen days. Behaviors that had been part of her life for decades dropped away. But interestingly, I often noticed her changes before she did. Some of them were subtle, and others dramatic. Her rage dissipated. Her nightmares disappeared. She was able to make choices and free from fears that had gripped her for years.

    Wanda also finds breathing techniques to be helpful. Thank you so much for the encouragement you share.
