Cleaning the Airways

An Imagery Exercise For Asthma or lung conditions

Asthma is a respiratory difficulty having multiple meanings. Those meanings are:

  • Internal weeping
  • A conflict between dependence and independence
  • A cry for help and attention
  • A cry to be free
  • Caught between a wish to live and a wish to die

"Cleaning the Airways" – An Imagery Exercise For Asthma:

  • This is a general healing exercise for the condition of asthma.
  • It should be done three times daily (before rising, mid–day and around 5pm) sitting upright in a chair with arms.

Close your eyes and breathe out three times slowly.

Taking a light with you, enter your body through your mouth and see your way to your bronchial tree.

See the mucus that has accumulated there.

See its color.

Now, see a big glass syringe with a golden bulb at the end.

Using the syringe, suck up and out all the mucous deposits, and put the waste in a container that you have with you.

After finishing, imagine a golden air gun and spray a jet of warm air through the bronchial tree, making the whole area dry.
Use your light to see everything that you are doing.

Next, breathe in pure oxygen in the form of white light.

See and sense your chest wall and rib cage expanding.

See and sense your lungs expanding like a bellows in all directions–up and down, front to back, left to right–allowing your lungs to fully expand and fill with this white light.

Sense your diaphragm descending to receive the full lungs.

Then, see your lungs contracting as the bellows contracts, forcing out all the carbon dioxide that comes out as a black stream. At the end of your exhalation, squeeze your lungs with transparent fingers to get rid of the last bit of trapped carbon dioxide, expelled as a jet of black smoke.

Repeat this "bellows breathing" two more times.

Then, come out the way you came in, using your light to see the way, and take your waste container with you.

When you are outside your body, bury this container in the earth.

Lastly, breathe out slowly and open your eyes.
