Track each breath deficit down to the disturbed roots that are feeding it!

1. Close your eyes and observe the present pattern of your breath cycle
How strong or weak, short or long, jerky or smooth, are the in-breath and out-breath? Is there a pause after the in-breath and/or out-breath? How long or short, comfortable or uncomfortable, is/are the pause(s)?

 
2. Note the tendency of your mind
To judge the present natural pattern and want to fix and control! - RESIST THIS TEMPTATION!

 
3. Observe how your breath, drawing on the energy of your attention
will often adjust towards a healthier and natural 4-phase pattern.

 
4. Check the pattern of your present breath cycle in Table 1. below
