Breathing can transform your sense and experience of time, lending you a feeling of space and control when everything seems too much. By using your breath you can help to slow down time and make your transition from one activity to another more significant and effective .
Take 3 long, slow, deep breaths. Feel your breath flowing in and out of your abdomen. Allow yourself to experience the natural rhythm of your breath. Take the time to notice how it grounds you.
The more you tune into yourself with this technique, the less harried you feel. Slipping into this still space ‘in-between’ what you did a moment ago and what you will do in the next moment gives your body time to catch up with where your mind has taken you.
You feel calmer and more centered. That allows you to experience a sense of satisfaction for what you have accomplished – letting you know what you do is enough.
Now you are ready to shift your focus to a new place of attention. Transformed by the quality of your experience in time, you engage in what’s next…and remain in control of what you can control.
Have you ever wondered why we have the Wu Chi posture at the beginning and end of every Tai Chi Chuan form? it is to achieve exactly that same sense of separation, that time to acknowledge that something is over, and something new is about to begin, it is a moment of preparation and celebration.
Make your life a richer experience, slow down
Good practice and happy easter to you all
