The Magic of Breathing
So, what is magic? Is it an illusion or is it real? The Webster's dictionary describes magic as "The art of producing affects by superhuman means; Any mysterious power, ex: the magic of love. Producing extraordinary results, as if by magic". Miracles are made from the same stuff as magic. They defy explanation by the rational logical mind.
When we talk about magic, we are not talking about turning rocks into gold or parting the dead sea? It could be an amazing happening but, it is often very subtle and quiet. Breathwork sessions, those of your clients as well as yourself. Here, we have all seen magic happening at one point or another. Something wonderful, unseen and miraculous happens in just the right moment and in just the right way. Healing happens and life is dramatically changed. This is magic.
What is the magic you want for yourself? What do you feel is beyond your ability to create in your life? What seems beyond your control? How do you start creating magic right now? today? There are several components that are important to embrace?
Have an "awareness" that everything is energy.
Take a closer look at your limiting thoughts and the beliefs that these thoughts represent. They are energy! You can choose to leave them behind and we have the tools of Breath Therapy to support that process. You cannot change something if you are not aware of it? so awareness is an important key. How willing are you to be fully aware of the energy you are putting out?
Examine what is seemingly impossible and decide it is not. We only need to look back a few years to see that was considered impossible is changing all the time. An example - once the four minute mile was broken by one person, then others began breaking it left and right. We can even build quite convincible case to support the impossibility of a situation. What do you want that you consider impossible? Ask yourself if it is really true.
Go beyond logic to connect with your soul.
If you run your life by logic, you are living from your mind and not from your highest self. Our mind is limited and is well defended. It only knows what has been programmed into it. You will not find what you are looking for there. If you could, you would have found it by now. By using your breath, you can go beyond the limits of the mind to connect with the love that is "who you really are." This is the place where miracles happen and magic is created.
Want more magic in your life? Breathe! Let go of fear and connect to Love. You cannot hold both emotions simultaneously. I understand that it is not always easy to contemplate this idea when there is so much turmoil in our world today. But fear breeds more fear and the cycle continues. There are places only love can heal. Be willing to believe in what might seem to be the impossible. Breathe and connect with Peace and love. Breathe and send that love out into the world? to your clients, families and communities. Let's all create magic together.
