Monday Message~Dolphin~Breath of Life~Repost

 

As I sat this morning and meditated on this week’s message, I had the urge to seek one from the animal kingdom. So I took to my “Animal Medicine Cards” and book, “The Discovery of Power Through The Ways of Animals” by Jamie Sams and David Carson and asked what they would tell my readers this morning. The card I pulled was the Dolphin. Here is what it had to say:

Dolphin: “Breathe, Take In Life Force, Accept The Gift of Usable Energy, Touch The Invisible”

Message (paraphrased): “Dolphin speaks to us of the breath of life, the only thing that humans can not go without for more than a few minutes. We can live without water and food for days, but oxygen is the source of our sustenance. Within the breath we encounter the rhythm of energy that all life emits. In changing the rate or rhythmic texture of our breath, we find an easy way to connect with Divine energy as well as with our own personal rhythms.

Dolphin is the keeper of the sacred breath of life, and teaches us how to release emotions through breath. Dolphin creates rhythm, swimming through the water and breathing before submerging, then holding its breath for the duration of underwater travel. As Dolphin comes above water again, it blows its breath out in a manner resembling the popping of a cork. We can use this same technique to pull the stopper on our tensions and create total relaxation.

Dolphin teaches us how to use life force through our breath. It revitalizes each cell and organ, and breaks limits and dimensions of physical reality so that we can enter “soul time”. Dolphin knows that all communication is pattern and rhythm and became a carrier of messages. And that breath is the communication with the rhythms of nature.

Be mindful of your body rhythms and patterns of energy.  Breathe and know that you are whole.”

from The Desk of MarDrag:

As Dolphin says, breath is the sustenance of our lives, and of nature. By becoming aware of the rhythm of our breath, we can tap into our own personal rhythms and change or adjust them. We can also release tension and emotions that have built up because of stress or worry.

By consciously paying attention to our breath, we can help our minds and bodies to release and relax. Haven’t we all been told when we are upset to “just breathe” in order to calm down or relax? And it works. But we do not have to wait until we are upset to use that technique.

As the message indicates…sometimes we feel we are “just trying to keep our heads above water”…and that if we submerge, we will be overwhelmed. But Dolphin shows us that we can survive those times of traveling underwater…and emerge again, able to release the tension and stress that difficult times create. And we can release it all, through our breath. It is the Life Force that sustains us, that connects us to our inner life force and feeds our cells the precious oxygen they need to flourish and thrive. When we breathe deep, we are nurturing our mind, body and spirit…in one breath.

Deep breathing can also take us through those moments when we would react to life’s difficulties in a negative way. It can help us take that pause we need before we react, and it can infuse us with clarity and calm so that we can have that moment to assess the situation before reacting.

Breath is the elixir of Life. So feed your soul and take a few moments each day to close your eyes, breathe deeply…take the breath all the way down past your chest and into your belly, your core. Hold it for a few seconds, then let it go, like the pop of a Dolphin breath, and release your tension. See it flowing out of you as you exhale. Do this several times and feel your body and mind relax as well as promoting the blood flow through your cells. There is also the element of connecting to Divine Energy with prolonged deeper breathing.

 D7.jpg

So, no matter how, when, where or why you do it…take those few minutes daily to breathe life into your mind, body, and soul and tap into the rhythms of your unique being. Feel that deeper connection to Self as your breath flows through you. And be as the Dolphin…go with the flow.

And Again…Just Breathe and Release

 

K2.jpg

After the wonderful New Moon in Aries bringing in some positive energy a couple of weeks ago…the energy of this past week has been odd and wonky. While the undercurrent was still positive…everything just felt “off’. And no wonder…with intense and life changing things going on all around us. It is, indeed, an unsettling time, one in which we are not sure what to believe in, count on, or hope for. With the answers and changes still coming…the one thing we can be sure will help us through, the one thing we can depend on…is The Breath of Life.

K1.jpg

So when there seems there is nothing else to do…Again…Just Breathe…And Release…

k6

Over and over again…just focus on that Breath of Life…feel it as you take it in through your mouth and it flows down through your body and breezes through your mind. Let it blow away all the confusion, frustration, and worry…Let It All Go to the wind…

k4

Release through the Breath that which does not resonate with your True Soul…And inhale the Breath of Peace and Empowerment…

K8.jpg

For the Breath of that moment…Release and Let Go…

K9.jpg

Over and over…as many times as it takes, as many days as it takes…one moment at a time…

K11.jpg

And we WILL get there…one Breath at a time.

Blessings!

Making Room for New Life

 

“In the space between chaos and shape there was another chance.” ~ Jeanette Winterson

“The moment that judgement stops through acceptance of what it is, you are free of the mind. You have made room for love, for joy, for peace.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

“Emptiness which is conceptually liable to be mistaken for sheer nothingness is in fact the reservoir of infinite possibilities.” ~ D.T. Suzuki

MR 2

from The Desk of MarDrag:

Yesterday’s blog was about the Breath of Life and how remembering that deep breath can be useful in helping us connect to the rhythms of our lives and restore balance, connect to Divine energy, and clear our mind, body, and spirit. Today we expound on that a bit because…as we use our Breath for these purposes, it also aids us in the clearing of our space and thoughts so that we can overcome confusion and overwhelm and allow new energy and thoughts to come through.

The thing is…in our daily quest to carve our lives into the gem we wish it to be, there must be a process of filling up, letting go, and then filling up again. Just as we do when we are focusing on our Spirit Breath. We take in Breath, hold it, then release it and with it allow tension, stress, and old energy to flow out with that breath and clear our inner space.

So too, this is what we need to do in our lives. We ask for and pray for new things to come to us, new energy or wishes or dreams, material things, money, success, love, and all the things we wish for to fill our lives and make us happy. But, we forget that we need to “clear the space” in order for the new to have a place to come into. We forget that we must clear out the old outmoded ways or beliefs or thoughts to have a clean and open space for the new and fresh to occupy.

MR 3

My belief is that we are afraid to let go of too much because of the fear that we will not be filled up again. What if what I wish for never comes? Then I will be empty and have nothing, so I will hang on to all that I have even if it no longer serves me because I do not want to be empty and alone. BUT…that may be the perspective that keeps us stocked full of outmoded ways or thoughts, or stuck to relationships and things that do not work for us any longer, simply out of fear. If we can turn that perspective over to the other side and see that…it is in that empty space that there is the potential for everything we have always wanted to manifest…then we can see that it is ok, even necessary…to let go of the past, and let go of those things that clutter our lives and just “take up space” because we are afraid to let go of them.

MR 4

Empty space is good…it is crisp, clear, and ready to be filled with whatever we choose to fill it with. Let us not be afraid to blow the Breath of Life into our space, and when we release it, let go of all the energy within and without that impedes us, holds us tethered to what no longer fills us with love and joy, and wafts the winds of change into our lives…as we have asked for.

The idea is…if we want the new and fresh to come into our lives, then we must release the old and stale in order to make room. Something has to crumble and be taken apart to make space and material to rebuild in a new way. Much the same as what is happening globally right now. Some things are falling apart, but if we change our perspective, we may see that it is necessary so that we will have a clear space and material to build again, in the true way we wish life to be.

Breathe, Cleanse, Ground…and clear your space as you Let Go to Refill. And know that, by doing this in our own lives, we contribute to the global energy aimed toward healing and changing for the better.

MR 7

The Winds of Change come…let us use that Breath of Life to make the best possible world for us all.

Blessings!

Monday Message ~ Breath of Life

 

As I sat this morning and meditated on this week’s message, I had the urge to seek one from the animal kingdom. So I took to my “Animal Medicine Cards” and book, “The Discovery of Power Through The Ways of Animals” by Jamie Sams and David Carson and asked what they would tell my readers this morning. The card I pulled was the Dolphin. Here is what it had to say:

Breath of Life

 

When I woke this morning, I had the urge to seek a message from the animal kingdom. They were abundant in my dreams last night, so I took to my “Animal Medicine Cards” and book, “The Discovery of Power Through The Ways of Animals” by Jamie Sams and David Carson and the card I pulled was the Dolphin. Here is what it had to say:

Dolphin 1

Dolphin: “Breathe, Take In Life Force, Accept The Gift of Usable Energy, Touch The Invisible”

As the book says, breath is the sustenance of our lives. By becoming aware of the rhythm of our breath, we can tap into our own personal rhythms and change or adjust them. We can also release tension and emotions that have built up because of stress or worry. We can notice that, when we sit for long periods, our breath becomes shallow. When we are in movement, our breath becomes deeper.

By consciously  paying attention to our breath, we can help our minds and bodies to release and relax. Haven’t we all been told when we are upset to “just breathe” in order to calm down or relax? And it works. But we do not have to wait until we are upset to use that technique.

As the message indicates…sometimes we feel we are “just trying to keep our heads above water”…and that if we submerge, we will be overwhelmed.

So take a few moments each day to close your eyes, breathe deeply…take the breath all the way down past your chest and into your belly, your core. Hold it for a few seconds, then let it go, like the pop of a Dolphin breath, and release your tension. See it flowing out of you as you exhale. Do this several times and feel your body and mind relax as well as promoting the blood flow through your cells. There is also the element of connecting to a higher energy with prolonged deeper breathing.

So, no matter how, when, where or why you do it…take those few minutes daily to breathe life into your mind, body, and soul and tap into the rhythms of your unique being. Feel that deeper connection to Self as your breath flows through you. And be as the Dolphin…go with the flow.
