A breathwork exercise to heal trauma

One day, when I was 13 years old, I became paralyzed with fear. To my surprise, I found myself physically incapable of entering a piano class 10 minutes late. When I arrived to find the classroom door already closed, a strange panic spread throughout my body. I timidly tried to turn the doorknob, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.

I ended up spending the next 45 minutes hiding out so I could greet my dad when class was over without him realizing I had been too petrified to walk into class a few minutes late.

While I waited out the clock, I berated myself for harboring these deep and intense fears that kept me from living my life. I was mad at myself. I was confused. But mostly, I was ashamed.

That moment in my life has stayed with me, even though more than 20 years have since passed. Thankfully, this angelic breathwork exercise is what finally helped me move toward healing. Give it a try and see if it helps you do the same.
