What is Rebirthing?

Intentional breathing helps you create positive outcomes in the future.

Everyone bottles up their emotions from time to time, choosing to suppress their feelings and not express or release them. While this might help you function in the short term, it leads to negative consequences down the road, which is why New Age pioneer Leonard Orr founded the rebirthing breathwork movement.

Understanding Rebirthing

Think of rebirthing as a natural stress management tool. Perform it anywhere you like and at any time of day. It helps release pent-up tension and emotions and allows you to connect your physical presence with your emotional and psychological state.

You can use rebirthing along with other forms of guidance, such as authentic psychic readings, to harness your emotions and control their outcomes. If you suffer from anger, fear, anxiety, depression, or other forms of negative emotions, you can learn to process them healthfully.

Combatting Illness

Many experts believe that repressed emotions manifest in disease and poor health. The seeds of resentment, fear, anger, pain, and loss express themselves physically in ailments. Rebirthing seeks to stem that tide and release harmful energy and toxins that might inhibit your overall health.

Managing Stress

Additionally, doctors have pinpointed many diseases and symptoms linked specifically to stress. From mental disorders like depression and anxiety to physical conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes, stress can cause or exacerbate several health problems. If you learn to manage stress effectively, you create a healthier body.

Breathing Intentionally

The rebirthing process uses a technique called circular breathwork. It requires the practitioner to breathe intentionally, taking the fullest, deepest breath possible, then releasing it effortlessly in a continual cycle. You don't pause between the inhalation and the exhalation.

Acknowledging Emotions

During circular breathwork, the rebirthee focuses intensely on the emotions he or she feels. Think of rebirthing as a form of meditation; once you master the breathing technique, you free your mind to focus on the emotions that rise to the surface. Honor and acknowledge them, then release them through your breath.

Accepting Reality

After the rebirthee recognizes and acknowledges the emotions that crop up during the session, he or she can reach the true goal of rebirthing: acceptance. The goal is not to change the emotions or deny their existence, but to accept that they have played a part in shaping the rebirthee's experience.

Changing Emotional Responses

After practicing rebirthing, the rebirthee can change how he or she responds to and processes emotions. This is similar to the psychology behind self-talk; you recognize the ways you have responded to emotions in the past, then craft a new response that you can practice.

For example, you might have responded to an embarrassing situation in the past by saying to yourself, "Man, I'm so stupid." In changing self-talk, you train yourself to say instead, "I did the best I could. Next time, I'll do better."

In rebirthing, the practitioner practices relaxation in response to all emotions. The goal is to forgive yourself and move on from experiences.

If you're not sure whether rebirthing is right for you, book an online psychic reading. An intuitive can help you find the perfect path for spiritual growth.
