Ride the breath

What a crazy end to the summer watching our neighbours to the south go through so many weather related challenges.  We've been sending our thoughts and prayers to everyone effected by these experiences.  And being Sept. 11th, we remember and honour those who have lost their lives.

In these times it's important to remember to breathe; fully and  deeply.  The mind follows the breath.  Breathing won't change what you are going through... stress is stress; however it will help the mind to calm within the experience.

As you inhale expand your belly; fill from the bottom to the top.  In this way you are utilizing your full lung capacity.   Release the breath in the opposite manner.
Inhale completely.
Exhale completely.

And without judgement allow yourself to be.
Things will change much is guaranteed.

"Despite illness of body or mind, in spite of blinding despair or habitual belief, who you are is whole.
Let nothing keep you separate from the truth. The soul, illumined from within, longs to be known for what it is.
Undying, untouched by fire or the storms of life, there is a place inside where stillness and abiding peace reside.You can ride the breath to go there.
Despite doubt or hopeless turns of mind, you are not broken. Spirit surrounds, embraces, fills you from the inside out. Release everything that isn't your true nature. What's left, the fullness, light and shadow, claim all that as your birthright."
~Danna Faulds

May this week find you consciously riding the breath
