Active Breath ~ Summer's Fruit

release into life
breathe in life
active breath
active being

I am intrigued with this seasonal time. The earth is working so hard and yet so peaceful.

This to me is active being. Everything we have dreamed of is now coming to fruition.
It is time to celebrate life and be fully present in it.
There is a shamanic exercise that faciliates this process:
  • Go outside where you live to a place you love.
  • Notice your breath and breathe naturally three times.
  • Now breathe in with the notion that you are breathing in all of life.
  • Breathe out with the notion that you are giving life with your breath.
  • Continue this breath for a short time.
  • Then listen to your surroundings.
  • What is your experience?
  • When you are done, give thanks for all of this.
May it be in Beauty.
