We may not realize it, but in each moment we are given a choice. A choice to welcome in mindfulness, to recognize what is here and allow what is here. It is in this recognizing and allowing that we can choose how we want to feel in the next moment.
As I connected with my breath, I slowed down to witness this moment. I recognized and said yes to some restless feelings I was experiencing. Just noticing what restlessness felt like in this body, I was aware of any messages it had for me. With Dorothy’s guidance, I began to use the power of my breath to consciously choose the feeling I wanted to experience in the next moment. As I breathed in this sense of ease on my inhale, the restlessness began to slowly dissolve on my exhale. This continued until my whole body felt this sense of ease.
With this sense of ease radiating from the tips of my toes to the top of my head, I am getting quite familiar with how ease feels in my body. This is important because I’ll be able to tell if this state changes throughout my day. And, if it does, which it will, I can consciously choose to return to this state using the power of the breath. Thank you for this powerful tool, Dorothy! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
