Just Breathe… Simple huh? We do it unconsciously more than consciously and even if we forget to breathe it happens without thinking about it as long as we are alive. If you hold your breath you will pass out then She (the goddess) will breathe you. Once I understood how the rhythm of my breath moved within my body my practice deepened & expanded. I became more connected and in touch with how I felt, connected to others and most importantly my body finding ease. Breathing is simple yet complex at times but always there to guide us when we focus our awareness on its flow.

note: you may hear more of my breath with a new mic – thank you Gayle

In this episode I mention a Tantric way of looking at the breath in the form of the goddess/universe and you are co-participating with her as you inhale and exhale. WOW – is right that was my response until I went deeper and actually found comfort in the thought and reality of it.

  • I must thank my sweet teacher who poetically taught me this beautiful teaching of breath. (Douglas Brooks is my teacher of Rajanka Tantra) Soon he will have a book out titled Rajanaka Heart.

Sanskrit Vocabulary: Shakti – divine feminine /expression Prana – Life force

COOL INFO: Did you know that dolphins choose to breathe and never sleep… they are always in the moment of the breath perhaps they are the goddess consciously breathing us?
