Are you mentally disturbed by your past traumas? Do you feel negative and powerless in your life? Are you constantly cherishing your dead past? Do you know that shallow breathing is related to you holding on to your past?

Holding on to these photographic memories is like having many high-resolution images in your inner space which crowd your perception.
