Jiro Murai once said to Mary: “One day, you will understand that everything we need for harmony and balance is connected to the breath and fingers.”
Breathing, we receive life energy, which constantly purifies and renews. Each conscious breath fills the body with new life.
When we exhale, vital energy flows in the front of the body, from the head (heaven) down to the feet (earth). When we inhale, it flows in the back of the body, from the feet up to the head. Exhaling is the most important: it allows us to empty ourselves and let go of everything that doesn’t belong to us now. When we inhale, cosmic energy flows into us and rebuilds the body.
