Sometimes we think that we breathe right, but if we stop and consciously monitored our way of breathing we will soon realize that we are tremendously lacking the majority of times, and that in itself is something that causes in our lives the blockages of our chi energy, taking our systematic makeup to crash, make us ill and depleted.
When we are stressed, we stop breathing, some times for large period of time, and we don’t even notice it. Why don’t we notice this? Because we are consumed by our worries, we are involved in a dance with our thoughts, chatting back and forth with the situation that we are dealing with; we are erratically letting a problem, and outside source or situation to take over us, instead of we taking the control of not letting this things drive us into an out of control mind game.
Meditation is a great source to help us to bring back our awareness, to be healthy and to live a life calm and rested. When we learn how to breathe right, we are creating, maintaining and developing a positive healthy magnetic field to shield us all around us through vibration, which then helps us to be connected in a healthy manner with the source of all life.
When we are born, we inhale the breath of life, for the first time in our life, our whole being fills up with that essence, and we become fully alive and fully connected with our spirit with our divine creator in our own, because before that we are dependent of our mother to breathe for us through her womb. What a marvelous thing! From that very moment that we are born into this universe, we play a big part of the creation in all that we do from that very moment, we are beautiful and we are angels in the making, but it depends on what type of angel we want to be or to become as we grow.
How do we fall off the wagon of life? We fall off the wagon of life, when we get too busy consumed by life stressors and responsibilities. We start to do everything that our critical minds had taught us since childhood, that being, the critical mind or the voices of the people in power around us, the more critical of us those voices were in the past, the more critical that would be as we grow, the worse is for us to break free from those voices once this is triggered when we have a life crisis. I do not say that people should not pray, but instead people need to meditate more and have conversations with the creator in a healthy manner, in our moments of solitude, so that we can grasp things and become more clear in which path we need to go guided by the inner God/Goddess that lives within our heart, just waiting for us to let it guide us to higher ground of consciousness and peace. For with every beat of our heart lies a great awareness and a powerful source supply. Instead of using it, we go asking around for approval instead of asking that divine being that lives within us.
LET`S DO A MEDITATION EXERCISE TO HELP US TO CONNECT WITH THE DIVINE LIVING SOURCE:
Firstly it is nice to cleanse the space with dry sage, incense, and some dry pine flakes, or pine cone, add some tobacco if you want (this is optional). This act will purify the premises, once you do this, take a spray bottle fill it up with warm water adding into it some aromatic essential oils, like ylang ylang, rose mary, lily of the valley; then add some ground mustard, sea salt or Himalayan salt mix it shaking it well then spray this all around. I also use bells to ring them in each and every corner of the place that I am working with energy healing.
One you are ready, light a bees wax candle or a few, whatever you prefer. Fill up a big clear glass or a cup with water, add a grain of sea salt into it; this will balance the energetic elements around your space. I do strongly recommend for the meditator to drink a glass of water before starting any type of holistic practice, this seems to clear the mind and helps to calm down the nervous energy that we carry within us. When this is all done, go to a quiet place within your living space, you can lie down on a yoga mat, or a blanket, or you can just sit in a chair in a comfortable position. Play some nice soft background music. Close your eyes, and begin by breathing deeply, visualize a nice soft blue light coming from above and going in through your crown chakra.
Now, say quietly in your mind, the following words:
“I call upon me and upon this place, that I am in at this moment, the most divine spiritual source of light, love, protection and truth of the heavenly beings, to come and help me as I do this meditation, may this create healing and guide for me and for all of the people that need it at this very moment for me and for them I pray amen.”
As you say this keep breathing and visualizing the light, blue, green, yellow and purple going through you like a body scan. As you are seeing this going through, you will feel your energy changing with each pass of colorful light. As you breathe deeply in, visualize the breath going all the way to your feet, arms and every part of your body with each passing breath to make it whole and activated. In the last breath try to visualize the orange light come through you, for this is the light of the inner child within, the light of creation, then visualize a white light surrounding you and the all of the other light colors like a circle all around you and from within you.
Keep breathing and concentrating on your breath. It is also nice to have a mantra to say to yourself so that this will keep you from distraction. If for whatever reason you find yourself distracted, you can re-direct back into the mantra and the more you do this the better you will come in guiding your thoughts and directing your body into being in a quiet and happy place.
I usually say these words when meditating. Inhaling I say love, exhaling I say peace, then light in, beauty out and so on, back and forth, but always positive words in and positive words out. The reason that I do this is because what we bring out is what we bring into ourselves.
Hope that this help you all to continue into growing and manifesting your lifestyle changes for a better and healthy you
Until next time,
