Just One Breath...
With just one conscious breath, we enter into a new dimension of living. When we bring awareness to the breath - even just one breath, we are in meditation. Do this in a few spare moments every day.
Gently notice your entire inhale - not rushing to the end. Feel the air passing through your nose, down your throat, feel the expansion of your lungs, diaphragm, rib cage and abdomen.
Notice the space between breaths.
Then gently notice each moment of the exhale. Feel the body let go and relax.
Meditation does not have to be long. Just a few seconds of conscious awareness makes a difference to our quality of being.
