3 - Stage Breathing...
WOW!! I do not normally have long titles to my reflections but this session was phenomenal. I hope I can express All my thoughts I just Experienced with it.
First the 3 Satges:
1) Awareness - of what is going on. Label it & let it go. Feelings, sensations, etc. Experience it - but do not attach yourself to it. It is not you, you are just (temporarily) ‘vibing’ with it momentarily ... (unless you tune your Focus onto it).
2) Focus - on your Breathe. I was just sharing this idea w/ my good friend Julie yesterday... Breathing real deep... slowly...completely filling lungs, chest & belly with fresh energy... holding for as long as you can... then exhaling slowly...squeezing belly to back to get all the used energy out of you... & this is where it gets interesting. The calm NOW unfolds in front of you...endless time & space open up & you are exposed to the All-Powerful, All-Wise, All-Encompassing... Unified Energy Field - God - The X...(Unknowable)
But then it comes to a screeching stop as I start to inhale again... I relapse back into this state as I hold in my breathe ... & it disappears again as I exhale. A light goes on in my mind... the NOW is accessible when we just existing... (not doing anything) Deeeep!
3) Expand - Focus Awareness on the bigger picture - You in your particular, momentary environment... I was doing this already.
Then it hit me, the 3- Stage process is kinda like a big breathe in itself. Start - go in - go out.
This will be Very Beneficial to use to quickly ground yourself in any situation. I know, because I have done it for years without knowing it has an official name! Ha Thanks WJD, Aura & Cherish ( I did this day 2 because I was not shown the real Day 2 as a choice for me today... how’s that for living in the NOW!!)
