Let’s pause for a moment.
Reflect on where you find yourself, right now, rounding out summer and down-shifting gears.
Together, let us have a moment of silence.
Now, take a deep breath through your nose. Inhale long and hold that moment quietly, at the top of your breath. Exhale slowly emptying yourself of all that is unnecessary.
I hope this summer sees you surrounded often by nature. In backyards, on porch fronts, or at the nearest water source. Count your blessings if you found yourself in, near or under water at any point this summer, soaking in its healing qualities. So many of us did as we visited our majestic National Parks, renewing and replenishing ourselves.
I give thanks each day for living near beautiful preserves. And I feel grateful for unexpectedly climbing to the summit of Stone Mountain just a few weeks ago, while enjoying a weekend immersed in nature. It reenergized me to the core. Our natural world provides us with the most direct connection with the energetic source of life, and water ties us to its life-giving properties.
We replenish our spirit and our bodies at a physiological level when we engage in outdoor activities, or no activity at all but soaking in the healing tones that intimately connect us to the energetic world. Eating the seasonal fruits and vegetables in these natural settings help us balance our mind, body and soul. Even simply sitting outside for lunch once a week at your workplace provides solace.
Let’s make space for breathing deeply and intentionally each day, preferably outside. Breathing ties us most directly with our environment and marks the most effective path for our self-healing when done right.
Breathe through your nose, straight into your lungs. Breathing through your nose naturally aligns your spine and lengthens your body to draw in greater energy and generate more expanse, and by extension more confidence and self-love.
Simply by breathing deeply we create greater resilience to calmly face life’s challenges when we establish a balanced body (through nutrition and physical health), mind (through positive behaviors and attitudes) and spirit (by creating one’s purpose and simply breathing deeply). With time we learn not only how to manage, but how to thrive in those moments that move us to develop ourselves more fully and create our happiness, while navigating pain and suffering.
