Meditations with Victoria: Breath; a Powerful Ally for Well-being, Be Nourished


The Breath is Powerful
INbreath
Outbreath
Both beautiful doorways
of Unity and Connection and Wholeness


When we take time to be calm, quiet and still
and to focus on the breath..breathing can instantly shift us on all levels.

Breath is a Powerful Nourisher,
it can invoke beautiful ingredients in the body, mind and spirit
and make us feel fantastic, rejuvenate us and bring clarity to our mind!

Breath is a natural healer..
When we align with our breath...
focus on the breath..
And Become Nourished by the Breath
we can find our Natural Harmony....



Think of Breath
as a Powerful Ally
of Transformation, 
Healing
and Creativity:


this ally can transform stress into calm
it can take a burden and make it lighter
it can mold a problem into a solution
it can slow down a racing state of anxiety
and bring gentleness and peacefulness and a coccoon of safety




Breath is Wisdom
it can open the eyes to deeper perception
it can make a bud fully Bloom
it can awaken all of the senses
it can carry us into a new world within
it can make what ails us .....heal





Breath is Transformative
it can take tears and find paths to joy
it can take us deep within... to hear the answers
it can bring us out of pain ....and into bliss
it can shift what is negative... into a positive space
it can shapeshift the mind and ignite new wisdom
it can transform anything.... and bring us into balance
it can help the mind and body heal, restore and rejuvenate
It can strengthen us on all levels
reduce stress and re-align what is out of balance
It can bring your whole being into Harmony


The Breath is alive with life-force,
essence and energy
it can reawaken the body, mind and spirit
into a space of well-being



Take a moment each day
to Honor the Breath
To flow with it
to be still
to listen to it
to allow it to Guide you
to heal your whole body
and enhance your well-being
into a State of Harmony


Breathwork..breathing...IS Harmony...
the circuit of unity , wholeness and balance.

When we breathe...we become awake, in focus,
we become intune and aware and creatively abundant.


The breath is sacred
and greets us with our first breath of life,
it carries us all throughout... till the end of our journey,
until our final and last breath.
It is a sacred gateway..to the beginning, the inbetween and the end.


Tune into Breath,
Tap inot this Resource...
it can bring your whole Being into a Creative-Awake Space
and a healthy mind and body.

The breath is your powerful ally...create with it's powers!
Victoria Pettella~



What are your favorite ways to Create with Breath?
I love yoga and breathwork
I also love being in Nature and walking and flowing with my natural rythym of breath. I love to be still and meditative and focus on the abundant resource of our natural breathing...

Honor the Breath...breathe...be nourished by this powerful ally!

What a wonderful post. It is a subject that is not touched on enough. Focusing on your breath alone, is a wonderful way to meditate. I use breathing exercises before preparing to channel Reiki.

Beautiful pictures...as always.

Sending you warm hugs xxxxx :)

Mina said...

How often I forget that simply proper breathing is so powerful and restorative. That breath is the key to all of life and creation. Thank you for this wonderful reminder, my sweet Victoria. You are an inspiration from the Heavens.

Lori Saul said...

Beautiful wise words and what a wondrous stroll through such a meditative garden. Summer slows us down to really concentrate on our breath and savor the long days. Happy solstice to you Kiki!

Jacqui said...

Martina said...

Dear Kiki, thank you for this wonderful reminder on how precious and mysterious breathing really is. I'm practising Yoga regularly and sit a few minutes every day with little exercises. But still, we need new inspiration and guidance to awaken again and again to the miracle of life, to not fall asleep. Love this post of yours! Hope your day is lovely, xx

fernenland said...

Beautiful and very refreshing. Thank you. :)

Emm said...

I just love that blue feather and the clay sun. I never appreciated fresh air as much as when I got to the UK. There are days when my lungs literally rejoice when I get off the hot and stuffy train and get some air in!

Beautiful photos in texture, light and color, exquisite.

Paula said...

So beautiful and so powerful. Thank you, Vicki, for yet another relaxing and schooled post. Indeed, taking the time the breath deeply certainly brings about new life into one's wellness. I have made this practice a ritual in my life and find myself breathing deeply nature's essence quite frequently as it has become the elixir I depend on for healing. This is one of my favorite posts yet! So serene ... the blue and white is calming and revitalizing. Thank you!

Sheila said...

My dearest KiKi....oh how I miss you and your beautiful space full of hope and peace and tranquility. The photos are incredible and these words are so calming. I've been so busy lately and before I know it, the day is over. I so miss connecting with my beautiful friends. I hope you are well and enjoying the summer. I'll be back soon. Thank you, so much, for visiting me. It means so very, very much. Hugs, Sheila

Cobalt Violet said...

I think I need to read this every day.
Thank you. :)

I was just contemplating breath yesterday, but only briefly. I feel like your meditations are a guide rope along a trail, helping me to traverse deeper depths of thought and experience. You are a wonderful teacher and I so appreciate your presence here. I agree with Cobalt Violet, this entry would be good to revisit and contemplate.

Tammie Lee said...

Do you sell your photos on Fine art america, I think they'd do awesomely well! Just so beautiful!

"Breath is a natural healer..
When we align with our breath..."

Something so simple and available to us. Time--this is what I am working toward setting aside every day for meditations and whenever I do meditate or pray, it is with a conscious effort that I focus on my breathing at the beginning, during and at the end. It IS truly transformative and I have to laugh at myself when I forget this.
