The life changer

There isn’t much that can not be changed by just sitting and breathing.

It is something that we do not even notice, yet we will take millions of breaths over a course of a lifetime. However, most of us do not take long deep calming, peaceful breaths and we do not realise we are actually breathing. We are too busy in our thoughts and stuck in our minds.

Long, deep and slow breathing does so much more that we realise, it’s simple, but we can actually heal ourselves and change most things be doing something that we take so for granted that we are unaware for most of our life that we are actually doing it. We can do it now, right now, and until our last breath. It’s an instant solution that’s always available.

Stop now…and just notice, check that you are actually alive by feeling your inhale and exhale. Then count, breathing in for 5 or 6 seconds, and then the same for the exhale. Slow your breathing and make it deeper. Then notice how you change.

Whatever happens in life, breathing can change it all.

It’s real life

‘Old Father Thames’ by Philip Dodson

Take a moment, right now, this very instance and breathe, in slowly and out slowly. Notice your belly expand and contract as you take each breath. Breath in and out for maybe a minute or 5, it doesn’t matter, it only matters that you are aware of your breathing.

Sit still and listen, notice the background sounds like a ticking clock or birds tweeting, notice the smells, see without labelling it, just look.

Take this moment and repeat this for a few minutes and then notice what’s changed. Of course, if you feel more peaceful and calm, then you could choose to repeat this more often, in fact, as much as you can.

Consciousness is real life as it is only found in this moment, we can not be it in the past or the future, they are just fantasies of our minds
