Peaceful Easy Breathing

“Breath is the avenue to sustain life, yes, but it’s also our ride to the moon and back.”

Last night I facilitated a sitting meditation with full-body breathing.   Teaching correct pull-through breathing is not just a pleasure, it’s an obligation I feel for myself and my tribe.  To know the truth about the world that lies in between the time and space of our breath is a vital component to source connection, divine guidance, and self-mastery.   It provides a foundation of calmness and peace in other areas of our experience as well, and who doesn’t need that in this world of chaos?

You want to give it a try?   Okay great!   Set your phone alarm for 30 minutes so that you won’t feel tempted to look at the clock.

Start to relax your entire body…however is comfortable for you.  Don’t hold anything in or back, just be loose and allow yourself to stop being the boss of your body.  Let your eyelids fall relaxed-open or closed.  If relaxed-open, attempt to fix on something in front of you like a flower, a light, a vase or another simple icon.  Take a series of three deep inhales and exhales, making sure to always pull in a new fresh offering of air while the releasing if of excess old stagnate air/energy that has settled at the bottom of you.  Once you feel you’ve gotten a good clear head, start practicing your counting.  Do a slow count from 1-5…on the inhale and then repeat on the exhale.  When we count as we meditate it provides a way to focus instead of our minds shifting from thought to thought trying to find a place to land.  Eventually we forget we’re supposed to be counting and that’s when we are dialed into the Universal energy of meditation and connectedness.

Sitting for 30 minutes is ideal.  And honestly, the prime time for a full-body breathing sitting meditation is to wake up daily at Amrit Vela, 3 a.m. – 6 a.m., or before the dawning of the morning sun.

Become in tune with the Divine and the realization that you are One with it.
