*Breathe *Notice *Awaken

Conscious Breathing ~ The mind starts to quiet down.  All that "chatter" starts to slow, lift.  In the quietness you start to feel a stillness, a peacefulness - stresses start to leave your body.  ~Conscious Movement~ Allows you a freedom we don't often give ourselves. ~Conscious Sound~ Creates vibrations that break blockages that have held you back. You start to play - Watching the veils move thru the air, the space takes you out of the "strains" in your body - it becomes meditative, even though you are active.  When you are sitting, resting, watching, noticing the veils floating, the experience becomes a passive meditation. Meditation Energetic Movement can provide a vehicle to become more connected to Life Force Energy, the fuel of the Universe, Creative Force,   The Divine - however you perceive what is greater than yourself beyond the tangible, that which guides you to a more fulfilling Life.
