We have entered an age across the spectrum of humanity where we are beginning to embody our guiding light AND one very potent pathway to soothe us as we embrace this gnostic journey is through our BREATH.
It is our life force, our chi, our connection to the divine and all potentialities.
What does that mean?
It means that the breath is the vehicle supporting our voyage home whereby:
- People are returning to a state of wholeness on a physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and energetic level.
- People are beginning to get out of their head and into their hearts by attuning and acknowledging every emotion and sensation that wants to be felt whether it is their own or another person’s.
- We are allowing our emotions to flow through us and “dis-identify” with our emotions as if they represent who we are in our entirety. For example, if you feel overwhelmed with shame or guilt from an old source that has you in the habit of self-ridicule, blame or judgment of self or another that does not mean you are less than or not good enough.
- Emotions are simply the language of the Universe and they want to flow through us. Energy always wants to move so feeling our emotions allows that to happen.
As a society, we are maturing past the emotional stage of the terrible twos where everything is polarized i.e. good/bad, right/wrong, yes/no, black/white.
We are NOW developing a taste for the in-between, the both, the and, and the soft central channel of our beingness.
We are becoming more acquainted with the sensations that various emotions spur in us and developing an intimacy with them rather than perpetuating a fearfulness.
Most of us tend to take it for granted. We rely on our Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) to keep us in gear.
And really, why not? Isn’t that the it’s job?
Yes, it is biologically natural for us to allow the Sympathetic Nervous System (a branch of ANS) to run the show. It is an automatic alarm system to signal if we are in danger and prepares our body to run, ground ourselves to take a stand or hide. It’s called the Flight, Fight or Freeze mechanism.
The SNS handles all of our internal processes such as digestion, respiration, heart rate, urination, sexual arousal and more. Most of us are unaware of all the functions that our ANS is handling for us in any given moment. It is a master manager.
Here’s the deal though!
Although you might be unaware of what your liver is processing in any given moment, the breath is one of those processes whereby we can orchestrate deliberately to create a conscious experience through masterful attention.
The breath is the one function that we all have the capability over which to hold dominion. In other words, it is one of our internal systems that we can consciously command.
How many of us actually do place attention and master our breath on a regular basis? Did you know that we get approximately 70% of our energy through our inhalation? And that we release about 70% of our toxins through our exhalation?
We can live without food for about a month, without water for a few days. BUT our breath – only a few moments.
Deliberate, conscious, mindful breathing allows us to shift ourselves and the bodies we inhabit from a state of unconsciousness to conscious awareness. In doing so, we shift neurotransmitter activity, alter certain chemical secretions and, ultimately, transform the emotional content we are experiencing. Remember what Einstein said, ““Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.”
So yes, we can actually shift my felt perception utilizing the vehicle of my very own breath.
It is through the breath that we have a CHOICE.
Yes, you have a CHOICE on how you might experience ANY SITUATION.
And the vehicle for that choice is the breath.
