meditation challenge: day ten

Today’s Centering Thought: I am one with the breath of life.
Sanskrit Mantra: So hum. (I am.)

I’ve learned the importance of breathing as silly as that sounds. Most of us don’t even pay attention to our breath throughout our days… But it has so much to do with how we feel. When we’re experiencing pain or anxiety our breath stops leaving us feeling frozen and helpless. I have found that real deep breathing, starting from the naval on up is the way to really get your calm on. In yoga and in this meditation, the word prana is used to describe your life force, the source of your energy which is your breath… Without it you are non-existent of course. What is important is to focus on your breath at least one time in your day because it will help you feel energized if you let it.
