need to be in balance to live optimally on this planet.
We are spiritual beings who have come to live in a
physical body to experience and learn from life here.
We need to be connected to out Earth Mother Root to
ground us here, as well as maintain a connection with our
Universal Father Wisdom. I want to suggest a way of
doing this through the breath and then go on to suggest a
couple of other things.
First we need simply to practice slow deep breathing as a
basis for this. Breathe in slowly and deeply, then
pause for a few seconds before breathing out again, also
slowly. Pause again for a couple of seconds before
breathing in again. Count if it helps you to focus.
The in breath and out breath may differ slightly in
length, so find what suits you best. The pause
between the in and the out breath may be slightly longer
than the pause between the out and the next in breath,
again find out what suits you best.
At the end of the out breath you may also like to add a
harder little blow to get every last bit of air out, but
in the second phase of this exercise you may find it
easier to discard that tactic again. For now I just
want you to think about nurturing yourself through your
breath. The in breaths should be filling your lungs
deep down with good clean air and the out breaths should
be clearing out that air again along with any stale stuff
left in the nooks and crannies.
Phase two then focuses on the few seconds where you pause
between breathing in and out. You should not be
holding your breath in a forced way for too long, just a
gentle relaxing pause, where you can start to focus on
forming and drawing on your connections.
Firstly, in the gap between in and out breaths, I want
you to feel as if the universe is pouring into you
through your head, your throat, the top of your spine,
your heart, whatever works best for you. Feel the
immense peace, love, wisdom. Feel it renew your
life force, your confidence in being yourself, your sense
of knowing wonderful things, and your sense of being
cared for. You might sense colours such as purple,
dark and light blues, green, and pink. Also maybe
pure white. Just let them swirl around and within you,
trusting in their beautiful healing, strengthening,
renewing, and balancing properties.
Secondly, in the gap between the out and the in breaths,
focus on your connection with the earth that allows us to
live here, feel it like a root drawing up the energies of
vitality into your body through your feet, up your
spine, and into the abdomen. Feel a sense of
security, safety, strength, nurturing and protection.
You may sense colours such as red, orange, and yellow.
Also maybe gold. The yellow and orange can also
flow directly into your abdomen via sunlight, or via
picturing autumn leaves dancing in the breeze for
example, and the gold tends to flow around you rather
than into you.
Enjoy this as often as you like. Through everything
we do in our lives, we can feel these connections
aligning us, enabling us to function more optimally.
After a bit of practice it only takes a few seconds
thought to focus on the connections to boost ourselves if
we are feeling tired, or fearful, or before an event such
as having to give a speech, sing, write an exam, run a
race, face up to any demanding situation with poise and
If you have sinus issues you can use a similar thing to
obtain some relief, and balance in your head. Press
a finger against one nostril and breathe slowly through
the other. Then pause at the top while you change
your finger to the other nostril. Now breathe out
through the second nostril, then pause briefly again at
the bottom before breathing in again through the same
nostril you just breathed out of. The swap over at
the top of the breath again back to the first nostril and
breathe out through that. Do it about five times
for each nostril then stop and just relax feeling
the head and sinuses come to balance. Dont
overdo it or it will make you dizzy. You can use
this simply as a sinus clearing exercise, or can include
the visualizations and perceptions mentioned above.
Another thing you may like to try is to imagine that your
spine is the staff in the centre of the medical symbol,
and that the two spirals around it are the powerful red
coming up from the earth root, and the pure white coming
down from the original universal source, twining together
to support you with everything you need to be master of
