Breathe with Intention: Heart, Mind, Spirit & Body Engaged
“I am grateful. I am healthy. I am loved.”
“The process of healing begins when we mindfully breathe in.” — Thich Nhat Hanh
Breathe in wellness. Take a deep breath, fill your lungs slowly, then exhale smoothly. Note your breath as it leaves your body. Feel yourself relax as you observe the flow of your breathing. YES! I affirm LIFE! YES! I affirm HEALTH! YES! i affirm LOVE!

“As white-supremacist, colonialist, capitalist patriarchy dies, the traditions that it has tried to obliterate experience a resurgence. An awakening. A renewal. Every culture on earth has its own systems of healing. Each one of us can dig into our lineages to better understand what kind of magic we might come from…” http://chaninicholas.com/2017/10/full-moon-taurus-horoscopes-week-october-30th/

Sip ginger tea for good health. Ginger tea has many beneficial properties, including the ability to fight pain and inflammation in the body.
My favorite ginger root tea recipe:
1 quart filtered water
2 inches of unpeeled ginger root, chopped chunkily
1 inch turmeric root or 1 teaspoon turmeric powder (more/less to taste)
raw, local honey
BOIL chopped roots in water (covered) for 10 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes. Serve with slices of lemon and raw honey.

breathe in “freedom.”
FREEDOM. What does freedom mean to you? Are you free to be your authentic self? Are you free from fear?
FEEL LIKE GETTING FREE?! Listen to this! musical remedy: “Get Up Stand Up” – Bob Marley & the Wailers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F69PBQ4ZyNw
breathe in nature…
Be in & of NATURE/COMMUNITY. We are of the natural world, even as many of us increasingly spend more time in the artificial world of man-made structures and times. Most of us work, live, eat, recreate/entertain ourselves and sleep inside structures); venturing outside to enter a vehicle, to venture to go into another structure, back to a vehicle, and back inside to our home structure.
Walk outside and observe the world around you. If you are unable to walk, sit outside. Experience and enjoy the weather…the winter sun, the cloudy sky, the rainy day, the snowy landscape, the brisk wind. Do you know the types of the trees and plants in your yard, on your grounds, in your neighborhood? Look around and ask yourself, “Who are my neighbors (trees, people, animals, plants, bodies of water, insects)?”

Another great question to ask yourself: “How can I be a better neighbor in my environment?” Suggestions: Plant an organic seasonal garden. Meet your neighbors. Speak, smile and wave to those you encounter. Be mindful of the wildlife in your area…they have families and homes, too. Pick up litter. Dispose of hazardous and flammable materials responsibly.
Restrict Eliminate the use of herbicides and weed killers that are harmful to beneficial plants, bees, animals and humans.
“When we understand that everything is interconnected, we are called to politics and set of actions that come from compassion, from the ability to literally feel with all living beings on the Earth. ~ starhawk
move your body! breathe
Bust out those old school dance moves! Raise your heart beat! Go ahead and wave your hands in the air…like you just don’t care! Move your feet, swivel those hips, shake that booty! Remember to stay hydrated…drink plenty of water.

Positive touch promotes wellness by increasing the levels of oxytocin, the “love” or “feel-good” hormone. Positive touch can be reassuring, it can help us to feel safe; can help us feel loved, and it helps us to bond with one another. A hug is good for your health! Therapeutic massage or healing touch will also help to increase your oxytocin levels.
Research has shown that oxytocin can help
- Extend life in cancer patients
- Reduce cravings for sweets
- Reduce anxiety and depression
- Increase sexual potency and desire
- Reduce cortisol and boosts immunity
