In every breath inhaled

Let all that we  receive be in conscious evolution

Let every movement be a dedication

Let every word  be  in gratitude of  the receiving

Let every intake be a conscious offering

 

In every moment of pause  between the inhale and exhale

Let us invoke the divinity in the  connectedness

Between the  silence of sounds and soundlessness

 

In every breath exhaled

Let there be a letting go of the spurious  and stale

Acknowledging  the potential to evolve even  better for

As matter was or is, it will be forever more  …

Shaped in resonance of the thoughts that brings it forth in timeline .

The gaps the pauses the silence know its purpose for being … spaced out  in rhythm divine !

 

The Dance of Breath !

 

The beauty in every breath of life  is in its impressions in the expressions through the  tones , shades , in its  patterns, and rhythms. This sets it apart… such  is the uniqueness  to every breath in the being.

To know to love life  is to care for the  body that allows you to move and dance with this breath of life….

To know to kinder the spirit  and keep it free flowing is the nature of  a dancing soul.

This is being in the moment, to  be one with it in conscious awareness and acceptance  .

In every such gesture in conscious acknowledgement of the dance of the  breath.  

There is hope of betterment towards living life fine.

There is path to greater awakenings  in every moment of time  !

My  above painting  is special to me as it reflects to me the value of our core connect to ourself as much as the power of the patterns of energy projections in the outreach.

Walk Light and Easy

One of my favourite time of the day is the time I dedicate to walking.  An activity I enjoy immensely and every once in a while I walk at the local park. I have been witness to the gait and posture of so many patrons of the park, some regulars, some occasional entrants or whom I call mood walkers.

In the course of time I have been witness to a variety of walking personalities. I would say that most people walk with a purpose and their gait  at times potrays the keenness to be fit.  But age and gender considerations apart I have seen a common gait adopted by most of them. There is certain heaviness in their walk. It is as if the stress inside is imploring them to push themselves ,faces constrained, arms hung, legs heavy almost stomping up a march on the ground accompanied  at times by a vacant , grim expression almost lost  as if left without a hint of smile in their hearts.

 I do believe that life is about great many things to be achieved and done, most of all it’s about living light and easy. Let your walk flow from pace to pace, strengthen it with fluidity in your thoughts to your movements, intention and purpose. Make your presence feel easy on others. Ease up your walk and grace up your life. Walk your way as fast or slow naturally with lightness in your stride.

Feel your inner light and help lighten your outside world. Just take care not to transfer your negative emotions on to the people around you. Instead let yourself be connected to the earth being a medium of energy. Whenever u realise there is a tendency of heaviness anywhere in the body, usually the shoulders or in the legs, you will notice that your gait is affected. A simple exercise in awareness is to keep sensing the ground you are walking and realise that it is taking your bodyweight. Be thankful to nature for being there beneath you as a firm and supportive ground for you to walk and feel the air around you that you breathe in to live and sense the beating heart and walking feet that carry you as you go. Feel the moment, straighten the slump of the shoulder and open your heart and life by regaining your natural posture so that the sight of you becomes an inspiration to someone else.  It’s simple genuine attempt to be at ease by replacing and, transforming your strained patterns of movements with grace.  Rest assured if you allow yourself to come this far into positive space your light is shining through as beacon to others much in need.

 

Anyone can improve upon their posture in a matter of minutes.

 A few simple tips for a better and natural walking posture.

  1. As you walk breathe and gradually engage your core and gently feel your belly moving back towards your spine. Keep the back naturally straight.

  2. Let your shoulders be relaxed and down but slightly back and head held straight, keeping the chin up and parallel to the ground. Make sure your head doesn’t bobble around too much as you walk as that would strain your neck and disturb your balance.

  3. As you walk engage all the lower body muscles i.e. the thighs, hips, legs in working together. When you utilize all the muscles and sense it working you are less prone to overstraining any one muscle group and thus can avoid injuries or soreness.

  4. Make sure you keep your toes pointed forward as you walk … as this will keep your gait stable and balanced. Let each foot land on its heel and spring to the next step from your toes.

  5. Make sure you don’t have a clenched fist (it could elevate blood pressure) but just loose and partially closed curl.  Keep your elbows close to the body.

  6. Swing your arms  but avoid pumping with your hands high up as you walk as it does not help propel you.

  7. Keep looking forward 10 to 20 feet ahead and not down as you walk.

  8. Walk tall and start walking  3 times a week at least and then gradually increase your walking duration .

  9. Maintaining a firm centre of gravity brings on a better walking posture.

  10. Finally focus one  or two aspects at a time and  find yourself having a great walking posture.

Slow and mindful walking helps in centering and relaxing and  while a power or  brisk walking can be energising and rejuvenating. What is most valuable is theimportance of tuning into the breath and sensing its rhythms  while caring to mindfully replace negative thought patterns with positive and happy thoughts and feel the lightness in your stride and in your life .

Today is the World Health Day …  take a step towards your health .

Have a healthy walk everyday !
