Years of “meditation”, formal and informal, have taught me that fully being present to life moments is truly the “meditation” that will change not only our individual lives, but all that we touch and beyond. This practice of awareness has the potential to open possibilities for free creative expression, connection, and collaboration in all the varied forms that it takes.
As we pay particular attention to the feelings that are informing our hearts, the electromagnetic currents radiate out and energetically connect all over the world. Global shift and transformation come from this – this deep interconnection with all of life. What we do individually really does matter.
The power that we hold collectively is beyond measure. It is not only being felt more strongly now, but more of us are coming together to create change in alignment with the health of the planet and well being of all living creatures. There is no separation.
Praying for the water that has been contaminated by radioactivity, joining 1,000‘s of others meditating for peace and non-violence, breathing together as one on behalf of those that have been affected by disaster…..there is no action that is taken, nor event that transpires, that is not felt by all.
As we breathe fully we are able to inhabit our lives with awareness – to break the structures of our lives that have kept us imprisoned. As we breathe fully we can feel fully….and no matter what those feelings are, or how difficult they may be, they are shared by many. You are not alone…no never alone.
Even physiologically each of us reduce our hearts work when we breathe fully and naturally. This produces a stronger and more efficient heart that not only works better, but also lasts longer. It reduces the cardiac rhythm, and at the same time our nervous system is relaxed, helping us to feel better, with more energy and an increase in tranquility….which of course is transmitted to the life around us.
We have a choice. First open your heart to yourself and in this moment breathe through your heart. Soften your belly – allow the guarding and protection to melt away. Just for this moment….and the next….and the next…..and the next. Breathe through your heart.
