Today, in honor of the Autumn Equinox and all that is going on in our world, I am sharing an excerpt from the new Soul Source Autumn Equinox newsletter. The focus is on spiritual tools that can help us to remember and stay true to our Selves even in the midst of difficult times.
Just Breathe" by Julie Bayer Salzman and Josh Salzman (Wavecrest Films)
STOP AND BREATHE
When life gets intense, pull your awareness inward and anchor there. Simply breathe and be aware that you are breathing. Put a hand on your chest or belly and feel the breath move you. Remind yourself gently, "Breathing in, I am aware of this moment. Breathing out, I am open to this moment as it is." Gently step back from the dramatic thoughts and emotions that may be happening. Don't DO anything for a bit, just be.
