Exhale

When we exhale, as in breathing, and allow everything to let go in the body, it releases all resistance, muscles relax, tension eases, we feel relaxed and at peace. However, to even notice our breathing, we have to be conscious, awake and away from our thoughts and mind.

This is what happens to us when we let go of the ego, the story, the mind and it’s repetitive negative thought patterns. We release not only tension in our body, but we also allow our soul to be, for our essence to shine. We let go of suffering, resistance, negative emotions, we free ourselves to be our true selves. We experience inner peace in the mind, body and soul.

Exhaling is something we do millions of times in a lifetime, each one an opportunity to let go, each one a chance to free ourselves and ready ourselves for new life in the next inhale of breath. Each unfolding moment a new breath, a new moment, a new opportunity to be life.

Closed for repairs

It’s good for us all to shut up shop.

Switch it all off.

Close the blinds, pull the duvet over and say ‘screw you world’.

Not often, but every so often, this allows a chance to breath, to relax, to be without any cares. A time to recharge a little, think, review, and allow some of the tensions of life to escape.

It’s even good to break the mundaneness of life’s rituals and routines.

Regularly, of course, it’s bad. But once in a blue moon, it’s good to be ‘closed for repairs’.
