All the residues – qualities that you feel pressured ti express verbally but are emotionally hard to release – can be cleared away on the exhaling breath.

These residues have feeling tones – dark red carries the feeling tone of anger and revulsion;

dark black carries anxiety, grasping, and neediness;

and the muddy color carries sluggishness, dullness, and apathy.

Exhale strongly, and reflect on the residues being expelled from your body with the breath.
