Breathe out the pain and discomfort.
Use your breath as a vehicle to transport pain away from you and to breathe comfort into you.
Breathe out the discomfort.
Breathe in the serenity that you need.
Breathe out all the tension.
Breathe peace and life and tranquility in.
(This is not too much different from childbirth.)
The emotional pain you are feeling can be carried away on your breath as you exhale, if you will release it.
The calmness that you need can be brought into you on your breath as you inhale, if you will receive it.
