One way I connect and expand into my Source perspective is through focused awareness of my breath. Breath is vital to life. I believe Source Energy inhaled, and then exhaled me into creation on my birth day. This Energy of Creation continues to circulate through every cycle of my inhale-exhale, connecting me to and through all living things.
We are creators in the breath of life and, therefore, have the capacity to create our experiences. Whether we know it or not, our mind, through our thoughts (and the emotion connected to those thoughts), is constantly creating for us. If we recognize our oneness with our Source and the connectedness we have with that Spirit, we realize that we are co-creators with Source in the breath of life. In knowing this, we can realize that we create the same way Source creates. Because we are awakening consciousness to this new idea in the creation process, maybe we create on a smaller scale. Realizing that we are able to create is the first step in visualizing our own reality.
Every time we take a breath, we are creating our world around us. We must look at and appreciate our life experiences, because if we don’t, we are just denying our own power of existence — our own creation! Knowing we are the creators and taking responsibility is a turning point in our ability to be deliberate creators of our desired outcomes.
With every perceived problem or challenge in life, we have an opportunity to change it. It is my experience that it can be as simple as changing my mind. Although that seems too simplistic, it really is quite powerful. After recognizing the challenge, we have a moment, when we breathe, to change our energy and align with our Source perspective.
There is always a chance to shift perspective – to allow for another experience. By taking a breath, it gives the mind a moment to refresh. This concept can be used in all areas of your life. You can create harmony and peaceful vibrations in any situation in your life. There is no limit to the manifestations available. Use breath for deepening meditation, expanding consciousness into your Source perspective, increasing intuition, creating harmonious environments, loving relationships and a healthy body and mind.
