For the past little while some people — lesbian type people — have been skimping on their breathing. This happens more times than I care to mention, but for some reason it’s happening more and more often and is beginning to have some deleterious effects for those of us working for the cause.
To remedy the situation, I have a request of all of you who find that you’re doing this. Plant your feet flat on the floor, drop your shoulders down from your ears and for one minute just …
Deeply. Slowly. From your core. Breathe in deeply to the count of five, hold it a moment and then breathe out just as slowly for another five count.
Do this each time you notice you aren’t breathing. Til it becomes a healthy habit. Please. It would be most helpful.
And for anyone who does this and finds that she is no longer doing plagued by shallow breathing, know that when you least expect it, someone wonderful is going to give you a wee kiss on the forehead. Just our lesbian way of spreading the energy of a heartfelt thank you.
