Recently I have started to appreciate the energetic changes in myself, and how I work with people. I was reflecting on my career in health and social care and thought back to the days I used to absorb everything. I was literally a human sponge for any emotion that was flying around; the more intense, painful and heavy the emotion, the more I seemed to attract it! Continue reading “To Observe and Not Absorb”
I practised (and subsequently taught) Yoga for many, many years before finding my true inner self – my inner heart – the part of me that is connected to, and one with, God. I did not find this inner self by looking to something or someone outside of me, which I had been doing to no avail for many years. No, the answer was inside me all the time!

I was introduced to the Gentle Breath Meditation™ through a friend. I noticed a clear change in how he looked in his face, and his body was more at ease: I asked him what he had been doing and he said the Gentle Breath Meditation™.
Inspired by the changes I saw in my friend, I decided to go and see what it was all about by attending regular meetings where the Gentle Breath Meditation™ was held. I found this meditation allowed me to re–connect back to myself, to my body, and to feeling again. Continue reading “The Gentle Breath Meditation™ – How It has Supported Me to Feel Again”

I have been a Universal Medicine (UniMed) student for about 5 years and since that time I have been doing the Gentle Breath Meditation. For such a long time I thought I had to do the Gentle Breath Meditation to connect to myself.

This has shown me that this beautiful warmth that I feel inside when I stop is always there. Essentially I don’t have to do anything to get to it, I just have to choose it.

I was first introduced to the Gentle Breath Meditation 6 years ago. It has been the foundation from which I have learned to have a deeper connection with myself just by stopping (a choice) for a few minutes and allowing myself to choose and feel my gentle in-breath and out-breath.

Just lately it has become so clear to me how much of my life I waste by thinking about things over and over again.
What I realise now is that I only need to think about a task when I am doing it, rather than multiple times before and after. For most of my life I have thought about what I am going to be doing this afternoon, or tomorrow, or next week, in an exhausting way. And if that’s not enough busy-ness, I can also worry and think about things that I have already done… over and over again.
It seems quite exhausting just thinking about it. Oops, there I go again… Continue reading “The Stupidity of Thinking about Things Twice”
