Things get so interesting walking around unapologetically myself and aware. Its not what I imagined it would be, when I longed to be like this.
Stick with me as I lead up to a wild real-life encounter.
Do you notice these collective pacts to “not look”?
How about to not give any evidence of breathing —No sound, no movement— while projecting an image that we are getting enough breath?
It’s so cute how our minds think they know the image of someone breathing deeply and completely. It reminds me of when I was in England as a teenager trying to do the accent, and the locals could hear me coming from across the Atlantic Ocean...
Because the reality of breathing deeply and completely is so wonderfully unpredictable —unlike the plodding drudge of energetically matching the status quo everywhere you go, barely registering the minimum ration of air —
That when you come from HERE [resourced with breath]…
…or encounter someone who is centered in their breath with zero exceptions: The contrast is clear which way, is the more loving way to BE.
When you come from a place of breath being your #1 priority, your acceptance of reality begins to devour everything available to your awareness.
Some kind of Wizard access is granted, and though you may have not trained (that you know of) to be a ninja or something, you understand that you are.
You can laser in and out of different perceptions while staying with yourself and guarding your body from foreign energy interlopers.
Then you begin to find the secret doors in the matrix.
Well, really there is only one door in the center of a whole labyrinth of passageways known & unknown.
For me, what I have seen today, walking as myself with my breath online, delights me as it is my environment showing evidence of my new way.
Do you remember that it can take some time and practice before matter expresses energy.? How many times do you get spooked when something different finally happens and then you drop it for fear that the awkwardness of it means you’re doing it wrong?
It’s just like the hinges of an old gate creaking when they swing for the first time in years. To be expected.
Some (not all) evidence of my environment changing today due to prioritizing the quality of my breathing:
I went to a different spot in yoga class .
On numerous occasions, thoughts that I had previously flagged as judgemental or superior or inappropriate, revealed themselves to actually be loving awareness, when they are swimming in the movement of breath.
Plans were cancelled and I was grateful and poised for what was wanting to become of my day.
I’m appreciating the other natural disrupters in my environment. I feel like we have a secret handshake. Many of the human ones aren’t looking up yet to meet my eyes.
A handsome free-radical man squared his body in front of mine when I was crossing the street entering the grocery store. I saw him coming. He pulled down his mask & looked into my eyes and asked me if he could have a hug or a kiss. I just allowed the respectfully cautious “no” to move through my body on my breath.
He offered me a fist bump, I accepted, and he stepped out of my path.
A man whose wild patterns of dress i admired called out to me in the grocery store “I love your hat!”. I allowed the “thank you” to be boldly cheerfully projected from below my heart and envelop him for a long moment as we both kept the pace of our stroll past one another.
I walked past a woman and she aimed a question right at me as she lowered her mask. I kept going, turned around without stopping and asked if she really wanted to know. As I rounded the corner, presuming she didn’t… she called in a strong voice that she DID.
If you dare to be available to be seen and aware of the way your breath can stretch and fortify the boundary of your skin…
Then your energetic field becomes some kind of truth chamber.
Some kind of rainbow generator.
A courage serum.
A walking talking white-hot threshold to Heaven on Earth.
Certain energies may not come into my space unless they are consenting to transformation. Otherwise, they just don’t show, or there are great obstacles in their way.
