BREATH OF FEAR, BREATH OF LOVE
Which will it be, the BREATH OF FEAR (unconsciously held and tense), or the BREATH OF LOVE (relaxed, open, fluid and nourishing)?
Rumi tells us that the Breath of Fear always involves holding and resistance in the form of freezing and sore muscles. Unable to feel the holdings, shallow breathing turns into a strong habit unable to correct itself by a few long breaths.
By contrast, the Breath of Love is allowed to pass through the whole body, like a baby does it. Learning the Breath of Love melts even long-held stresses and tensions throughout the whole body and can always be returned to. And maybe, just maybe, it’s our breathing that causes us to worry, fear, doubt and feel unworthy. If that’s the case … there’s no time to lose!
Join me in an afternoon of learning the Breath of Love and taming the Breath of Fear.
