So, this is the question. Where do you go when you feel pain?

Well, you know when you are in the ocean, in a heavy surf, if you stay on the surface you will get thrown about against the reefs and the rocks, and you get a lot of water in your nose and mouth and feel like you’re drowning. But if you dive down and hold onto something and let the wave pass over you, you can come up in between and feel just fine.

Water imagery in the breathe allows for a breathe that is slow, deep, long, smooth and expansive within our minds and physical bodies.  It is a true process, with its own rhythm and timing, learning to go with it, to let it sweep us along and letting it all go is a great lesson of the flow of giving and recieving in life.

Taoism is called “The Watercourse Way,” and fittingly a lot of Taoist imagery is water related. Managing the focus on body or emotional pain can be associated with the idea of “Grasping Water” — basically that you can’t. If you try to grasp water, snatch it in your fist, you will find yourself empty-handed. The only way to hold water is to open your hands and allow it to fill that space. You have to be in a state of reception, openness… Pain is a language of the body conversing with your soul.  Listen, breathe, accept and let it flow through, without grasping and recieve its understanding.  Our body wants to heal and become in alignment again with the mind, body and soul.

With love, peace and harmony. Stay in the present, be in the moment with this precious gift called life.

Quote of the day 11.02.2011

“Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire.

Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.”   – Martha Graham

Relax and Breathe!
The door to your heart and to your dreams opens inward. This means that you must learn to relax before you can solve your problems. You may feel that if only you could solve your problems, you could relax. But it doesn’t work that way. In order to take the pressure off, you need to make space in your heart for other possibilities to happen.

Learn to replace your old, restricting thoughts with thoughts of joy, peace and harmony. Here is an exercise to help you let go of your stress.

For the next week, I want you to carry a timer with you. Set it for every half hour. When it rings, take three very deep, slow breaths, and silently say to yourself:
All is well. All is well. All is well.

Begin to bless your health with love. Life has given you enough breath to last as long as you shall live. As you slow down, you will begin to trust life.

Please know that my love and support are with you as you move along your pathway of a healthy and joyous life.

Louise L. Hay
