Only a Breath Away
It’s profound to reflect on the fact that some of the most powerful healing tools are available to everyone for free. From creating art to exercise, from conscious breathing and meditation, these natural remedies for mind-body health and wellbeing, are as close and available to us as the next moment.
In this morning’s meditation, as my focus on breathing helped me quickly shift into a deeper state, this centering thought presented itself:
“Meditation is a portal to infinity.”
“Breath is a pathway to that portal.”~LeAura Alderson, creator iCreateDaily.com®
Never underestimate the power of your breath to calm or energize, to relax and heal… to create your state.
From Automatic to Conscious Breathing
Breathing is a part of the autonomic (automatic) nervous system. It usually happens without us thinking about it.
So many things in life that we go through are automatic for ever so long. We think thoughts without consciously choosing or directing them. We feel emotions without consciously choosing, filtering and reframing them.
But as we grow in awareness, we grow in consciousness. As we grow in consciousness, we grow into our destiny as conscious creators.
Changing Your Breath Can Change Your Mind
When it comes to our breath, we can very quickly learn how to change our breathing. Conscious focus on breath can change our mind-body health and well being. Through breathwork practices we begin to discover this powerful free healing tool that’s as close as our next breath.
When we consciously take charge of the autonomic (innate… instinctual… automatic) system, we begin to master our mind-body organism rather than to be subject to its whims and reactions.
Similarly, creation and creating happens automatically. We create our reality by the thoughts we engage. For ever so long we’re at the mercy of circumstance and happenstance… of programming and belief (and disbelief). Aspirations are squelched by doubt and fear and the voices of naysayers and dream slayers.
For a long time in our evolution, we don’t choose our thoughts or feelings, they happen to us.
Until we begin to realize that our thoughts are our employees to put to work. Until we recognize that we need not be slave to our emotions and thoughts, and that we can choose conscious creation over victimization.
Time to claim what is rightfully ours… to take the helm and rise into our indomitable selves, and become:
“Master of my fate… captain of my soul.”
