The Sanctity of Breathing and Prayer

It has long been known among spiritualists that focused breathing opens the doorway to our essence and true being. If focused enough, you will feel peace and love flowing through you. It is in this state that if you choose to pray, you’re prayer will at it’s most powerful. It is in this state that your prayer is not just words but also a feeling. You will be sending your prayer in the form of feelings into the universe. The universe responds accordingly to the clarity of our true thoughts and feelings.

Try your best to make all prayers from this state.  If you do so, it is offered in its clearest form. You will be giving the necessary fuel for your prayer to take it to the next level. Prayer in and of itself, from a scattered or desperate mind can work. The intensity of the prayer can be the fuel, but a calmed, silent praying mind is of a higher octane so to speak.

Also, in a state of relaxed breathing you receive the truth of your prayer. You will know if you truly want to make that prayer or not, whether its necessary. If it’s a selfish prayer you may realize that it is not necessary and that in fact everything is ok and will be ok. If it is a prayer for others , the mental clarity will arrive on how to phrase the prayer that makes it truly represent your feeling. Innately you will feel like you have made the most of your prayer.

Intense silent prayer is one of the most powerful ways to communicate and ask from the universe. With continued practice the harmony of your interaction with God will increase. You will synchronize your soul to the abundance of the universe. Prayers will be answered to the point that you will never need to ask for anything again.

Spiritual Growth in the Workplace

Many of us spend a good portion of our day in the workplace, where we are regularly interacting with co-workers, clients, customers, patients, students etc.. These are people who we are not exceptionally close to but have some level of relationship with. We can also be tested by these individuals. They can challenge our patience, our goodwill or make use feel negative in some fashion. Maybe we feel betrayed, or feel like a situation has become unfair.

For those who are looking to develop spiritually, the workplace presents every opportunity to grow. It becomes a laboratory or testing ground. We can change our usual tactics and reactions to various circumstances and see what happens. For example, where we would normally respond with anger or irritability we can instead try rising above the situation by showing understanding, compassion or kindness.

Then we can see what happens, see how we feel when the situation plays out. If you find that you are more calm, less irritated, or that your anger is not “sticking” with you, then you will have found a new route that you can choose should a similar situation arise in the future.

When we go to work, most of our focus becomes on performing the job itself rather than the quality of the interactions we have with others. In some cases how we treat our coworkers is secondary to performing the job. As long as we get our job done and the bosses are happy then that’s all that matters even if we have to mistreat a few people to get there. The job becomes more important than how we treat our colleagues.

But, what if we went to work with a different mindset, where our goal was to treat all those in our workplace with compassion and understanding. How do you think this would affect you? How do you think it would affect your performance? More importantly, how do you think it would affect others? If this is a path you have not tried before then why not try? If it benefits you and others then would it not be worth it?

When you begin this practice you will feel less lingering irritation and an increased sense of peace. The positive outcomes will far outgrow the negative. Your performance will improve. You will gain a natural respect from others. With continued practice, your job will feel like a natural and enjoyable place to be. You will be benefitting others and thereby benefitting from your own actions. Reverse the priorities and you will find that all levels of your performance will improve. This will lead to opportunities you most likely never thought possible.

Don’t Think, Just Be

Dont think, just be. Thinking is separation, being is oneness. Thinking is anxiety, sadness depression, worry. Being is calm, peace, love and joy. Let it go. Whatever thoughts are in your mind let it go. You are beyond thought, you are being and nothing else.

As humans, we are only meant to just be and to realize that that is all we are here to do. Simply focusing on that fact will bring God into this world. You are the doorway to bring Heaven to earth, the door just needs to be opened. Once the door opens, even just a little bit or for a little while, then you will know, then you will feel. You will know what steps you are supposed to take in this life. You will feel guidance being given to you from a different dimension. All of your life will make sense, you will have direction, you will feel a purpose. You will realize that all you needed to do was appreciate your existence to achieve everything you ever needed.

Our physical brains were never designed to understand the true reality. We where only meant to exist and to learn to recognize that fact. The less we speak from a point of knowing the better. The more we realize how much we do not know the better. Try it an realize it for yourself. Focusing on your existence in this exact moment will stop your incessant stream of thinking. Give up on trying to figure everything out. Just be in the moment and grasp onto the fact that you simply exist and how this is a wonderful fact.

See how this effects you. See how your breathing slows, it becomes deeper. How suddenly there is less weight in your emotions and a release of much of what you thought was serious in this life. Practice this. See how much you improve over time.

The better you get at focusing on the simple fact that you exist the more fulfillment you will feel in this life. The more you will understand that permanent peace of mind is about simplicity, not complexity, that joy is here and now, and not in some distant future.

The Benefit of Conscious Breathing

Focusing on your breathing is a simple, easy and powerful way to keep calm. Keeping genuinely calm is a powerful way to be healthy….mentally, physically and emotionally.

Since breathing happens automatically, we do not pay attention to it. We do not recognize the fact that we are capable of regulating and controlling it at any given moment. Most of us only see it as necessary to live, when in reality it can serve a much more grand purpose. It is, in fact, one doorway to peacelful and joyful living.

With this being the case, should we not enhance the practice of the very act that keeps us alive? Does it not make sense that tuning into what keeps us alive must also be the very path to finding out who we truly are? Should we not incorporate healthy breathing into our life rather than continuing with the short anxiety ridden breathes we take throughout our day?

A healthy breath is long and protracted. The body benefits from slower and deeper breathing rather than faster and shallow breathing. If you can simply train your body to breath in such a manner, every part of you will remain more calm.

Deep breathing is a slower course of breathing. The amount of times your lungs expand and contract in a certain period of time is often related to how tense you are feeling. Shallow short breaths means more tense, deeper and longer breaths means more calm.

Experiment with this. Notice your breathing during an intense moment at work, where you are trying to get as many things done as possible or doing many things at the same time.
Notice your breath.
Notice how shallow it is. Notice how it is about half way to a full blown panic attack. Once you catch it you can control it. Immediately start making sure that your breath becomes deeper. See how this causes the tension and stress in your mind and body to dissipate. It is upto you how much you would like the feeling of well being to improve in that moment. The longer you’re awareness and attention is placed on your breathing the more stress you will be relieving. The less attention you pay to this the less amount of stress you will be releasing.

Ultimately, the goal is to make your body automatically go into conscious breathing mode during the most unlikely moments of your day. Especially at the seemingly most intense and stressful moments. Breath, let your body relax and then see how you feel about the situation. See that although the task at hand is important, it is no longer consuming you. You are no longer the task but rather the one dealing with the task. You have control over it and it does not control you.

Making sure that each breath is as deep as possible will remove most of the daily feelings of stress in your life. It will be replaced with a lighter feeling, a feeling in which this moment does not dictate whether you live or die, but rather whether you are enjoying life as it comes or not.
