Cage of the mind

in mindfulness •  last year

If you are having any type of problem, negative emotion, a bad day or a series of unpleasant moments, it means you are not in the present moment.

You are then locked in the cage of mind.

Only when you persistently familiarize with the creation, when you truly appreciate the beauty and perfection of the present moment and understand that the mind can not live in the now, but only in the past or future, you will understand cage of the mind.

The key to opening the cage doors is a breath.

Breath bridges the gap between the soul and the body. You don't believe me?

Breathe in for a few moments feeling the air through your nose.
Feel the breathe in and out. Focus entirely on your breath.

Congratulations, you are not in the cage anymore.
You flew, at least for a little while.

Great write up!
Cause everyone wants to be a free bird right?
Thanks for sharing some inspiration :)

Another fantastic gem from you, thank you.

Very interesting, thanks for share. Cheers

Yup, I'm working on it :)

Thanks for the reminder! Deep conscious breathing can help shift us when the sympathetic nervous system is in overdrive - flight or fight.
