Breathe oil is about allowing yourself to live LIFE fully. Some of us are unaware that we are breathing shallow breaths throughout our day. We breathe shallow breaths when we stress and worry. We stress and worry because we are in a fearful state. It is good to pause, breathe and ask ourselves what we are fearful of. Sometimes, it’s simple to resolve as soon as we are mindful and aware.
Like most people, I often forget that I have the power to CHOOSE! If I feel despair, unloved, constricted or closed, I tend to wallow in these feelings a while. When I’ve had enough, I pull myself out with the self awareness that I CAN choose to replace fear with faith and be filled with life again. Our goal is to keep working on this self-awareness and being honest with ourselves about how we respond to the world. That way, we we keep improving and changing for the better.
This is one of my favorite quotes that keep me going. I envision myself at the end of my life looking back and seeing all the times I have been brave and lived this life fully. Breathe in the breath of life!
