Are YOU ok?!
If we take a moment to scan our life… How PRESENT we are day to day?
93% of people will say 'Oh, of course I'm present!'
If we take a moment to scan our body… How TUNED IN are we day to day?
93% of people will say 'Oh, of course I know what my body needs!'
If we really take a moment... if we really, but really scan ourselves… the most honest answer will be different. And that's ok. That's something that nobody else has to know, but it's important we admit it to ourselves. From that moment, there's no turning back.
We see it, now we know it, and we can't unknow what we know.
We are still amazed by the fact that such a simple beverage as tea can be so powerful.
The simplicity of nature can't be more perfect.
The same applies to the breathing process.
Breathing is a natural impulse. We all do it. We were all born with it.
We know how to do it. Nobody taught us this… and that's wrong!!!
We should start learning breathing techniques in school! Such an important skill that some people learn later in life, and some never learn at all.
Our knowledge about breathing came from years of yoga practice. But many people dismiss practices like yoga or similar ones that require slow breathing, and slow movements, mostly because they feel it's boring.
There's a difference between fitness training and slower techniques. In fitness we breathe faster, in yoga we focus on our breath while we're getting in and out of the pose.
Both build strength in our body, but not in the mind.
We wish for everyone in the world to try it with an open mind and allow it to flow through you… any of the 'slow techniques' that are out there, and then you can say if that is boring for you … but you never will :) The effect that it has on the body & the mind is priceless!
And we doubt that there are people who won't feel it, unless they really do not let it.
The awareness that suddenly starts to happen, the presence in every moment, it all gets a completely new dimension. From that point, we start to see how we usually REACT rather than ACT in any situation. We become more thoughtful. We become steady, grounded, and clarity comes in… and we welcome the Joy & Vitality into our life.
The stress we used to know no longer exists.
'I don't have time', or 'I don't know what to do' are excuses we no longer use.
Mistakes turn into valuable lessons we are grateful for.
Joy becomes our best friend, and we look for it in everything we do. And it's there, right there, wherever we are. That's magic.
All that is said above applies to drinking tea, as well.
Because tea teaches us to slow the body & the mind, so we could SEE, so we could FEEL, and so we could THINK before we ACT.
Herbs do their part inside the body, no worry about that, but here's a trick; When we drink tea mindfully, even when we eat mindfully, meaning we're present in what we do at the moment, the benefits increase. This way we energetically support the whole process that's happening. There's also the science behind this, the chemistry that happens in our brain while we do this.
So remember to be mindful about everything you do & desired results will be much better!
But BREATHE before all.
