There seems to be quite a preoccupation with breath in many spiritual traditions. There is a good reason for this. Firstly, breath is the intaking of life force from the universe. As we breath in we not only fill our lungs with air, we fill our lungs with the space between atoms which is where our Creator's energy enters into us.
Secondly, when we choose to control our breathing, we force our restless minds into performing a task that will distract it from thinking all of it's chatter about gloom and doom and judgments and whether it likes this or that. The mind ceases to become idle with it's idle thoughts and, instead, now becomes focused on a bodily function.
When the mind becomes focused on breath, it starts to quiet down. When the mind starts to quiet down, then the body starts to relax. When the body starts to relax, our soul begins to talk and take control of the body and the mind. When the soul takes control of the body and mind, the Spirit of the Creator can then help guide us through our day with wisdom through the Still Small Voice Within.
Notice how all of this starts with controlling the breath. Do you wish to be in a state of Grace and Ease? Do you you wish to live in a relaxed state throughout the day? Do you wish to tap into the Infinite Wisdom of the Creator? Read on as we give you a simple breath work that you use with every breath. This is the practical advice for every day.
Breathe in a normal breath through your nostrils. Focus on the feel of the air as it passes through your nostrils. When you have made your normal inhale, don't stop, inhale just a little bit more. This little extra tells your body that it is receiving a different control, a control that is coming from the mind as a conscious control instead of the normal unconscious breathing.
Next, hold the breath for a count of one, two or three depending upon what the body feels comfortable with.
After this count, release the breath in a relaxed manner. There is no need to force out the air. Just let the lungs deflate and feel the air passing through your nostrils on the way out.
After the lungs deflate, wait one, two or three beats before inhaling again.
Repeat the process over and over throughout the day.
What will be the result? You will notice less chatter. If you notice too much chatter even with this method then stop ingesting caffeine! Caffeine drives the brain into overdrive. Make the caffeine reduction gradual - there is no need to torture yourself with a sudden cessation of caffeine. Just drink less and less of it over the course of 60 days. Substitute drinks with less and less caffeine.
The extra breath on the intake will more than compensate for the lack of caffeine. The extra breath bring in more energy from the Creator with every in breath. It normalizes brain function and alleviates the need for caffeine.
If you are not a caffeine drinker and you still have an overactive chatter, even with the breath work, then add this extra activity to the breathing: Tickle the roof of your mouth while breathing. This additional mind distractor will bring the chatter to a halt.
As with any change in habits, breath work will require attention and perseverance. Remind yourself in the morning by stating mentally to yourself with this intention, "I am using breath work today with every breath." Such intentions throughout the day help to remind the self to focus on the breath.
May you persevere and make this practice of breath work an integral part of your life.
Allow Life to Flow
Message from Ascended Master Kuthumi
We have all been in a place in our lives where we wish to control everything down to the smallest details. Do you remember the last time this passion occurred to you?
How did you feel when you tried to anticipate every detail and contingency? Did you spend much time agonizing over all the details to try to have a plan for what could go wrong?
Did you become riddled with anxiety as you tried to supply solutions for more and more improbable outcomes to your situation?
Did you make yourself upset as you strove to put into place plans b, c, d, e thru z?
Is this attention to control healthy for you?
I present to you another option.
How about simply letting it all go. Just become the spontaneous soul that you really are instead of the incessant worrier.
Let us take an example to show how this can become. Let us say that you intend to have a party within one week's time.
Normally, as the worrier, you immediately begin to fret over details such as what to wear and what to serve and when to obtain the necessities of the party. You may spend the better part of the week fretting and listing and worrying about the party.
Instead, the free soul within you already knows what to do and when to do it. Souls never fret over the details because the details are already known. It is only the physical mind the frets with anxiety because it does not have the ability to access higher levels of information that the soul can easily access.
The easiest way to access this higher level of knowledge and information is to listen to your Heart. You can actually ask your Heart yes or no questions and quickly ascertain the best time and place for the party planning and setup. For example, you can ask your Heart, "Heart, is Thursday afternoon the best time to shop for the party?" Listen for the Heart's answer by feeling it. If you get a feeling that Thursday is right or wrong then your Heart has given you the answer.
Apply this method to your day to day decisions and you will find your self fully present in the moment and living in the flow of life with less worries.
Many Blessings to you!
