Hi, I’m The Dolly Lammy,

Your visual aide as a reminder to use the power of your breath, as presented by Wolfgang Schareck at the 2017 International Breath Foundation (IBF) Conference in Reinchenau, Austria

“The Dolly Lammy has become my teacher to study and practice life while here on earth in my body.

The Dolly Lammy does this very simply for me.

Its uplifted head, relaxed shoulders and straight back, reminds me that good posture promotes healthy breathing and living.

Its neutral face with the black head and white body reminds me by balancing my yin and yang energies, I balance my ego and enables me to leave it outside before I enter someone else’s home.

Its white body and white arms teach me to be pure of heart and action with everyone I touch.

Looking at its RIGHT arm with the message of “Just Breathe”, I am reminded that to live life to the fullest is simply to breathe in the RIGHT way for ME and me alone.

Its expanded gut and belly reminds me to focus my mind on that part of my body and move it in and out, which activates the up and down movement of the diaphragm with every breath I take.

After all, it is one of the largest muscles in the body used strictly for breathing.

When I look at its black feet, I am reminded to always be grounded to Mother Earth with every step I take.

The black and white of the ears remind me to always keep my mind wide open and listen to the sounds of the universe.  This helps me to share the message of The Dolly Lammy with others who might care to listen.

The big ears also remind me to always speak with loving intent and integrity, as I never know who might be listening.

When I see the complete body with its big tummy, I feel the lamb of God in the body of Christ, the shepherd. Since Christ studied with the Buddhist in Tibet while here on earth, I balance in my heart the principles of the western and eastern philosophies that these wise sages taught us to live by while here on earth.

When I touch the Dolly’s body and feel the many pellets inside, I am reminded to celebrate with loving intention every single cell in MY body.

And finally, when I reflect on the name The Dolly Lammy, it reminds me that the name is a play on words to describe a child’s toy.  I recognize that in order to heal on all levels I need to connect fully with my innocent child within with unconditional love.

It is our vision that The Dolly Lammy be an effective reminder for everyone to ‘Just Breathe’ and also as a symbol connecting all breath workers worldwide.

Together, The Dolly Lammy and our company is all about the DIAPHRAGM MOVEMENT, and if you see merit in our message, we would be honored if you joined us on this exciting journey of life.”

Co-creator of The Dolly Lammy and Co-founder of The Dolly Lammy Breathing Company

 

We are also sharing with you the many benefits of the simple Conscious Mindful (CM) Breathing technique that consciously activates your diaphragm.

CM breathing is one of the best and simplest ways to combat stress. Even if this practice is well known, it is easily forgotten or overlooked in moments of stress.

This is where I, The Dolly Lammy, come in. I am the solution to this problem.

I will be with you anywhere you go.

My customers explain it best:

“I am the proud owner of a sacred Dolly Lammy. Its message of ‘just breathe’ is remarkable. I have placed this inspirational companion right by my computer, ensuring that we have eye contact. Every glance reminds me to not only ‘just breathe’ but to breathe deeply, focus, and stay positive. The Dolly Lammy brings me inner peace.”

What is the most effective way to breathe?

The most effective way to breathe is by activating the diaphragm.  Conscious Mindful Breathing is the simple act of breathing in and out of the tummy.

One of the largest muscles in the body, the diaphragm sits underneath the lungs and separates the chest from the abdomen.  When we breathe into our belly-gut, the diaphragm moves downward more fully, expanding the lungs to take in the greatest amount of oxygen, fueling every cell in the body.  When we breathe out by pulling in our belly-gut, the diaphragm pushes the lungs up, expelling the maximum amount of carbon dioxide. CM Breathing leads to the full expansion of our whole torso and beyond.

An easy way to think about it is:

Breathe in….Belly out.
Breathe out…Belly in.

Breathing this way maximizes the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide.  Expanding the lungs insures optimal oxygenation of cells throughout the body, slows the heart rate to help maintain focus, improve memory and reduce stress.  For more info on the benefits, click here

“A few nice deep breaths can be relaxing and is a quick and easy stress reliever. So easy that you can do this anytime and anywhere. When you do breathing exercises you will be less stressed and able to handle situations more easily.”

-Marianne Ross, PH.D.

Conscious Mindful deep breathing reduces stress

Stress triggers changes in the body that can make you more likely to get sick, or make existing ailments worse.

Stress contributes to:

    • Lack of energy and concentration
    • Memory loss
    • Increased anxiety
    • Depression
    • Weight gain or loss
    • Heart problems

…and more!

De-stressing is a challenge for most people, but deep diaphragmatic breathing can help reduce stress and relax with ease.

How do I, The Dolly Lammy remind you to breathe?

It’s simple really.

As a visual aide or cue, I am the missing link between breathing fully with the diaphragm and remembering to breathe this way as often as possible.

My big belly will prompt you to activate your diaphragm and with the phrase ‘Just breathe’ on my arm, I will remind you to practice effective breathing whenever you can, wherever you are.  As an added benefit,  my head is up, my back is straight, my shoulders are down and my arms are relaxed, as good posture supports greater lung capacity.

Place me where you will see me throughout the day.  I am small enough to take anywhere but large enough to catch your eye.  I can sit next to your computer, night stand, the dashboard of the car, in your purse, or …. you get the idea.

As your visual aide, place me wherever you can see me to support you in living your best life.  I will remind you to activate your diaphragm with every breath you take.

That’s it!

What a difference The Dolly Lammy has made in my life! Being a constant reminder of conscious breathing, I am now aware of the initial tendency to hold my breath during stressful moments throughout each day and the negative effect that practice has. Breathing through it is a much better solution. This is a cute and simple aid to better overall health. Many thanks.”
