a breathing meditation

Dear Brave Souls: For you, a breathing meditation.

In your heart, go to the most beautiful tidal water you can recall, enter it– it is just the right temperature… and there, in ancient Mother Ocean, bend to curve your waters to roll and recede, roll and recede in waves.

Breathe in, recede,
then hold breath for a moment…
then Breath out, roll forward
with longest breath you have.
Calm bright heart.

Breathe in, recede,
then hold breath for a moment…
then Breath out, roll forward
with longest breath you have.
Calm bright heart.

Be reminded this is the child’s natural rhythm for self calming. Remember, you are a child of the Waters from your conception forward, and be calmed. You were conceived in, carried in the waters for nearly a year and you could breathe in total calm in those waters.

Breathe in, recede,
then hold breath for a moment…
then Breath out, roll forward
with longest breath you have.
Calm bright heart.

Breathe in, recede,
then hold breath for a moment…
then Breath out, roll forward
with longest breath you have.
Calm bright heart.

And with love,
dr.e
