I want to start this piece with a wonderful quote by Don Miguel Ruiz: “We must challenge those beliefs that limit the expression of our lives”. Just imagine what would we be able to do if we did not “hear” old sets of beliefs about ourselves and others. We would simply be unstoppable! Our minds are busy and constantly moving from one line of thought to the next. Most of us have accumulated different “concepts” throughout our lives, and have adopted them as our truths. Unfortunately, these beliefs often belittle our true potential.
When we are not connected to the truth of our hearts, the truth that make us aware of our inner divinity, our consciousness shrinks. When our consciousness shrinks, our false set of beliefs (those beliefs that tell us we are not good enough, that we are too fat, we cannot do this without help….) expand and take over. We end up seeking power outside of ourselves.
Human minds have unlimited potential but we have limited access to it. Why? Because we don’t take time to go deeper into the depths of silence. We must learn to calm the vrittis (spinning movements) of thoughts in order to gain a glimpse of our infinite power. The breath is the gateway for this to happen. Right now, as you read this, inhale slowly and three-dimensionally and as you do this, inhale self-love, inhale slowly and invite confidence, courage, creativity. Invite with your breath and with your eyes closed, whatever quality you need right now to expand the expression of your life. Always looking at your unhealthy voices with compassion and understanding.
