This post is about why it pays all of us to think about a simple, effective and underused process that can change how we feel, how we respond, and how we can make the most of who we can be, wherever we are, with whatever we've got.
Breathing smoothly and evenly has a profound effect on the nervous system, the body, and the mind.
As we practice this frequently, our minds become more quiet, more calm, and we begin to detach from distractions.
This then allows us to create our own environment.
We find ourselves becoming more connected to our purpose in life. This tends to bring about a life that's more proactive.
We may also find that we begin to remind ourselves of the possibilities in our lives.
This brings a sense of purpose. We may well find ourselves reacting less and less to outside influences.
We create our own individual pathway.
As we make more use of our own imagination, we may also find ourselves becoming more physically calm and at ease, more composed.
Being more composed, we may find our bodies, and our nervous systems, are less tense, more calm, and that we are in a state of physical and mental ease.
This state tends to prevail even in times of potential stress.
This often leads to the breakthrough.
We begin to respond to our own guided thoughts.
Rather than being blown like a leaf in the wind, our thoughts tend to become harnessed, focused, on where we want to go with our lives. And this becomes our motive force.
This thinking leads to reinforces our purpose and intent..
And that's just ONE benefit of a Guided Breathing Practice.
There are many, many others.
