Darling, I am here for you. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
If we are not fully present, we are asleep. Breath is the portal to our awakening and our true presence. Breath is our entrance into this world and our humble exit. It’s the place where our body, mind and spirit meet.
Breath is the question and the answer, the intension and the insight, the training necessary to show up and the practice of letting go.
Breath allows us to move through difficulty and into our power source. Breath brings us back to our physical body, where our vibrant heart and guidance system reside. Breath frees the anxious mind and relieves tension. Breath is the school of loving-self, a slower and deeper way of being. Breath is our channel to our inner love, the bridge that connect us to our brightest star. Breath is the sacred link between us and Source.
Breath is the expression of our Divinity.
Breath is the wave that blesses each receiver. Like the skies, our breath is limitless. In conscious breath, we give gratitude to life. Breath is the symmetry of opposing forces. Breath is the flow of our humble learning, each moment moving into the next. Breath anchors us back to what is most important: this sacred moment, full of wisdom and possibility.
Notice your breath, pause and take delight. Feel the magic reflected back to you in the coming and the going. Be a witness of this awe.
Breath is the song of every bird, spring in every bud, and chi on its natural path. There is juicy breath and heavenly breath, deep breath and quick breath, long breath and raspy breath, nervous breath and effervescent breath, the giggle and the sigh. We cannot be attentive to our breath all the time but we can practice pausing and being with our breath whenever possible. Breath is the road to compassion and understanding.
Breath aligns me, soothes my edges, and shows me that there is nothing to fear. My breath is an expression that always sways the pendulum back to center: in music and movement, in smile and silence. Breath keeps my addict grounded, whispering “it’s ok, love, you are free”. Breath is the door that leads me where I am most vulnerable and gives me the courage to stand tall in this world. Breath is my centering guide and the vessel back to my ancestors. Breath is my connection to all that is life, past present and future. Breath is the blessing dressed in common robes.
