When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child. Now that I become an adult, I have put away childish things. – 1 Corinthians 13:11 New Heart English Bible (NHEB)
As a child sleeping in my twin bed, one night after reading and writing in my diary and finishing up my good night prayers, something happened to me.
That night lying in my bed with my left ear resting on my firm mattress, I could not only hear my heart beating or thumping loudly, but I also felt and heard every breath as it entered in and out of my body.
As a young child, that awareness frightened me because, in my mind, for some reason, it reminded me of death. So, I quickly turned my head over to my right ear only to discover the same happenings. I then turned over onto my back to silence the awareness.
Today as an adult I listen on purpose to tune into the rhythm of my heartbeat and the flow of my breath because I know they are gifts from the Universe saying to me, “ Be that connected, be that aware, use your power because they are signs of life, not death, and they are here to guide you along your way.”
It is from this awareness as an adult that when things fall apart I try hard to tune into the gifts of my heart and breath.
It is not always my first response when things and thoughts are cloudy, but when practiced, I witness and experience how the heart and breath will not only key me in on the realness at hand but have keyed others as well.
So, today, in this video, I will guide you with one of many different tools to focus or redirect your awareness to the gifts of the heart and breath. Gifts that once frighten me as a child, but now as an adult, I cherish and welcome their presence and guidance.
