36 Breaths & Holding Fingers, Winter 2010


Experience Harmony at Your Fingertips….

“Self Change starts with Self Study” – Mary Burmeister
Did you know that we all have the innate power to help and heal ourselves?
Try either of these exercises below (or both) everyday for 7 days and see what differences you notice…It’s that simple!

The simplest and most important SELF-HELP tool we have is our BREATH – The EXHALE and
the INHALE. When we exhale consciously and deeply, we release tension and stress. When
we inhale naturally, we receive an abundance of life energy. This life energy connects our

feet. The smile comes naturally as you release and gently welcome the inhalation.
Each day use this formula to EXHALE consciously and INHALE naturally, 36 breaths. You can do
this all at once or you can do 9 complete exhales and inhales four times per day.

Another exercise is to gently wrap one hand around your other hands’ thumb and each finger
individually and then hold the palm of the other hand. Hold each finger, thumb, and palm for
at least 2 minutes apiece or longer. You can choose which hand you want to hold or do both.

The fingers and palm have energy connections to our mind, body and spirit. Alternatively, you
can do both exercises together as well… the 36 Breaths while holding your fingers. While you
hold each finger/position, do 6 complete breaths and then move to next finger/position and
