Above all else, BREATHE.

A flower from my garden, one that begs to have its life-giving energy breathed in…and one that inspires my urge to paint with this exact color combination…I love it! 

Do you ever notice that you are holding your breath, even just a little? Many of us are breathing shallowly to begin with, and at times we don’t even realize that we are holding our breath all-together! I encourage you to take a deep breath in right now…

Breathe in one more time, slowly…..breathe life into your whole body….and then exhale gently and slowly…all the way out.

Don’t you feel better already?

I sometimes find myself caught up in my life journey, all tangled and hasty, on the verge of overwhelm. Then it occurs to me that I haven’t been fully breathing life in. When we move through life with an urgency (often accompanied by fear, worry or guilt), we run off of adrenaline. When we are powered by adrenaline, we are tense and our breathing runs shallow and quick.

When we breathe fully, we function at a more optimal level. Oxygen is so important and necessary for a clear mind. When our mind is clear and we are full of life, we make decisions that are aligned with our higher purpose. We can “see” things. We can move. We can more fully be and feel our truth.

Simply beautiful.

Now go and get yourself a nice big glass of water.

Love you all!

With light,
