Breathe

Breath is life, but so often we restrict it. We block the flow of energy that is essential to our being. Your breath is trying to remind you just how spiritual you are. Because your breath shows you your God force.

For myself, when I fully breathe, the energy of life flows through me. And I feel electric to the core. Every cell of my being is charged and lit up! And then I remember that this electricity is love.

My attachments dissolve and are replaced by complete acceptance. The entire world wraps its arms around me, and I see that I am this world. I no longer feel separation or need. The unconditional love that I feel is overwhelming, and I realize that no one ever needs to be fixed, but rather celebrated. I LOVE everyone, including myself, exactly as we are.

Each one of us is this love that is so deep and all-encompassing. We have simply been blocked from the truth because we’ve been controlled for a very long time. We have been taught to restrict ourselves with shallow breaths that stunt the inhale and manage the exhale. But we are intended to breathe openly and fully.

When we breathe in an open and continual manner, air or prana life-force is allowed to flow into the body, and this also releases stored emotions. Considering all that humanity is going through in our evolution, it is vital more than ever to breathe freely and naturally again.

Once upon a time, humans subsisted entirely on prana air. We had an open channel to the universe. If you haven’t already done so, dear friend, you can reawaken this channel through breathing exercises. The following is my favorite method, but experiment and find what feels best for you.

When you breathe, open your mouth wide and inhale air deeply through your mouth and into your stomach. Your stomach should actually inflates and expands. Then, with an open mouth, exhale freely, completely and all at once with a natural rush, without any control whatsoever. Do not restrict the exhalation by slowing it down, but make a loud and full breath out. Your shoulders will probably shift and release some weight. Then inhale again almost immediately, without a pause. Allow your breathing to form continual waves that crest and fall, crashing to the shore, receding and building back up again. This kind of free breathing is incredibly detoxifying and healing. It connects us to the greater spiritual reality and to our authentic selves.

Breathing is so much about receiving. It is allowing ourselves to partake in more than we ever thought possible. It is owning what is already ours in each present moment. In fact, to not take what the universe naturally gives us is selfish. Let us instead accept all that is being offered and be a moving part of divine exchange. Let us enable ourselves to give in return, in our own uniquely gorgeous ways. Then, we are truly participating in the celebration of life.

Spring is calling us to partake in all that we naturally know, but have somehow lost along the way. When we fully breathe, we resonate with the authenticity of being. We resound with the electricity of all-encompassing love.

* Robert Winn teaches breathwork with tremendous wisdom, openness and humor. His Soul Breathing site has some fantastic exercises on it. Pheonyx Roldan Smith also teaches breathwork, and exudes love and acceptance. I also recommend the following books containing breathwork exercises: The Hathor Material by Tom Kenyan and Virginia Essene which includes prana breathing techniques, and Pleiadian Initiations of Light by Christine Day which teaches about heart breathing. These books are “out there,” and they are amazing. Breathe on beautiful friends!
