Breathing Peace in Your Soul
Breathe in Positive Energy to Find Peace and Balance in Your Soul
Have you ever noticed how you breathe? Do you take shallow or deep breaths? Do you breathe from your chest or your abdomen? Your breathing is an automatic function of your nervous system. It is easy to take for granted this simple mechanism that brings your mind, body, and soul life energy. As you breathe air in and out of your body, you are also breathing in and moving energy within your soul in a rhythm with the universe.
When life becomes overwhelming and stressful, you may have inadvertently trained your body to breathe with the rhythm of these stressful responses leading to shallow breaths that fail to fill your soul with positive energy. You can learn how to relax and retrain your breathing patterns so that your soul connects to healing and rejuvenating energy.
Find times throughout the day to focus on how you are holding stress within your body, to feel the movement of the air in and out of your lungs, and to sense what emotions and mental blocks may be preventing you from fully accepting your soul and taking care of you. Increase your awareness and breathe in the energy that provides balance for your soul.
5 Steps to Breathe for Peace and Balance:
1. Make You a Priority
Choose a few minutes every day to make your health and energy a priority. During this precious time, make a note of how you feel physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. If there is anything missing in one of these areas, ask your soul what you need to heal. Your soul knows the answer, and it is unique to you.
2. Practice Breathing
Play healing music or sit outside in nature and reconnect to your soul. Practice breathing from your belly. Practice breathing as though you are taking in the abundant energy of the universe specifically designed for your soul. Over time, it will become easier to tap into this simple slow pace of life.
3. Notice the Quiet
As your soul learns to breathe again and take little pauses to just be present, notice that there are longer gaps of silence. Your soul brightens with each of these moments. You do not need to fill the quiet space, just be you, just sit and feel your soul. Your soul is free in the quiet. Your soul is finding peace.
4. Plan for Challenges
Know that the greatest power you have as a soul is to overcome challenges, and you overcome the hard times by bringing out your inner soul strength. This soul strength builds from the breaths of positive energy you allow for your soul. Breathe in to create the strength that paves the way for your soul.
5. You Are the Peace
Your soul is peace. Life is just a learning experience, a distraction to who you really are at the soul level. Underneath the deadlines, the expectations, and the daily grind of life, your soul is peace, and you can find this balance again by breathing in the energy that aligns with your soul. Your soul fills with brilliant light energy with every breath you take. Take deep breaths and thank the universe for the gift of you.
Belly Breathing for Your Soul
In the practice of belly breathing, start by slowly breathing in through your nose, and as you do this, place a hand on your belly and notice the air expand in the space of your belly pushing your abdomen out. If you are doing this correctly, you should notice the movement in your belly, not your chest. During the exhale, breathe out through your mouth slowly allowing your belly to relax and shrink to a normal size. You can also practice belly breathing by holding counts of 5 to 10 seconds after breathing air into your belly and then slowly releasing this air. Visualize the air you are breathing in and out by imagining beautiful healing energy coming into your body, and as you breathe out, imagine releasing stagnant energy or any fears or worries that no longer serve your soul.
