I would like to share with you what has happened over the last two years since I began to use your products, suggestions, and materials. I considered myself pretty healthy, until I contracted a virus in my heart sac, pericarditis, from drinking milk. I forced myself to a local doctor. He scheduled an EKG immediately thinking I was having an heart attack. By mistake, the nurse thought the doctor wrote something about giving me a breathing test. In turn, the nurse tested my breathing volume and pressure. The doctor laughed, but said since I have these results I will tell you about them. He said that my inhale was slow and that I was not breathing right. I thought to myself, I have been singing since I was five. How can I not be breathing right? This was the start of my adventure to learn more about breathing.
After little time on the internet, I came across www.breathing.com. I called you and asked you what product I would need. After a few minutes of talking to me, you said, “slow down, you are too anxious.” You began to question me. I rambled with untrue answers because I was unable to see I had a problem. Finally, I began to tell you I wore my belt tight to look thin. You said, “Now, you’re talking.” You immediately began to read my life with statements like, “You get anxious too easy,” “You have difficulty with premature ejaculation,” etc. I was floored. You suggested that I start with Breathing Kit, so I did and faithfully commented myself to the suggested exercises. I saw some results, yet I later called you again. You still heard a little anxiety in me. So, you told me to put down the phone, inhale, hold it, bend down, and do a yoga roll back up, then release the breath. You asked me how I felt. Still not satisfied with my answer, you told me to repeat it. That I did. Unsatisfied again, you suggested that I order the Blue Velcro Strap. I did and wore it religiously. Although it felt like a bra, I wore it.!
After some time, I began to sense a change. First, I my voice colored with tone and breathing pauses in my sentences were precise when speaking. My family and friends wondered what happened to me.
It wasn’t long until I called you back to praise you. You recommended that I use the Diaphragm Strengthener and get The Watching Breath CD. I did. Tremendous results happened!! Everything began to fall in place! After listening to the C.D. twice a day, I began to sense my breath or breathing consciously throughout the day. During the moment on the CD when you said breathe through your toes and feel the breath all the way to your head, it hit me. I realized I could feel the pauses on my exhales and inhales, the rise and fall of my diaphragm.
Also, I have ejaculation control. Public speaking and singing has become easier. With singing, there is a flow from head to chest registers. I can sense when I am not sitting correctly. Meditation and yoga is relaxing, not tiresome. Mike, thanks for sharing, “The Light of Breath” with me. I will forever be grateful to you.
