    Guided Connections to bring us back to Inner Peace with Joy Truscott (click picture for link)

    Breathe deeply in and out 3 times deeply. Allow your exhale to be slightly longer and softer than your inhale.

  2. Feel into your body and notice any part where you feel tightness, constriction, blockages, numbness, pain or fear.
  3. Bring your loving awareness to this part of your body or place inside of you, and slowly breathe there. Make contact with the pain or fear, and welcome it
  4. On your next breath imagine the arms of the Divine deeply embracing you. Feel the holding, feel the breath of God on your skin and hear the whispering of comfort in your ear
  5. Allow yourself to be soothed; allow any fear or pain to be transmuted by the embrace of the Divine
  6. On your next in breath, begin to notice the softening of any blockages or tightness, and bring the energy of love – the embrace of the divine – to that area. Know that it’s reminding you that you are not alone; you are always held; and you are One with everything.

Just Remember This:

  1. Breathe into fear (or pain)
  2. Breathe out love
  3. Breathe into love
  4. Breathe out fear (or pain)

The Guest House – Rumi


 This being human is a guest house.

Every morning a new arrival.


A joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visitor.


Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,

who violently sweep your house

empty of its furniture,

still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out

for some new delight.


The dark thought, the shame, the malice,

meet them at the door laughing,

and invite them in.


Be grateful for whoever comes,

because each has been sent

as a guide from beyond.



Breathing Lesson Seven

Lesson Seven

The Physical Perfection Breath




Sit or stand straight, making sure that the spine is help in good posture.


Inhale a Complete Breath.  Allow your body to become rigid with the buttocks tight and feet firmly on the ground.  Arms strongly at the sides, hand tensed and strong.


Inhale as you extend your arms straight out in front of you with the hands level with the shoulders, palms of the hands touching.  Keep the arms tight but not rigid.  Allow your feet to feel like they are anchoring you to the floor.  Keep the shoulders back and down, neck held with no tension. 


Hold the breath as you swing the arms outward to the sides, (making a cross with your body and arms).   Feel like you are opening outward with the arms and opening your chest, arms becoming more rigid  as you swing back and forward.  Still holding your breath do this three times and quickly bring your arms to your sides, exhale vigorously, inhale and relax into reverent position, head down and hold yourself in Loving Light.


Rest and start again for another few cycles.

The Inspirational Breath



Sit or stand straight, making sure that the spine is help in good posture.


Inhale a Complete Breath.  Allow your body to become rigid with the buttocks tight and feet firmly on the ground. 


As you inhale raise both straight arms simultaneously, palms downwards, slowly moving the arms outward from the sides until the back of the hands touch above the head.  Lock the thumbs together if you can and make sure that you are still standing firmly on the ground.


Retain the breath for a couple of seconds.


Now lower the hands to 45 degrees, exhaling a little air vigorously through the whistling lip gesture.  You should look like you are making a V sign with your arms upwards. 


Lower the arms a little more until they are level with the shoulders while you vigorously exhale some more.


Then lower again a little and let more breath escape, keeping the body and chest firm al the while.


As your arms reach your sides now, breathe out the last of the air by pressing the abdomen inward.


Begin by doing the cycle three times and slowly build up until you are able to do seven cycles.


In the final position, stand reverently and relaxed, head bowed forward but body maintaining good posture. 


Work with affirmations and awareness to make the life force your healing.

Breathing Lesson Five

Lesson Five

The Revitalizing Breath




The Revitalizing Breath is also called the “Complete Breath” or the “Basic Breath.”  Care must be taken to align the body correctly for the full benefit to be gained.


Stand straight or sit upright, making sure that the spine is as straight as possible.


Begin by inhaling through the nostrils, inhaling steadily and not too slowly.  Breathe deeply into the abdomen, filling the lower part of the lungs, then the middle part and then the upper part.  As you reach the full end of the breath, the abdomen will begin to pull up slightly.  Keep the arms and hands in a state of tension and buttocks locked below the spine.


Hold the breath for about  30 seconds then exhale vigorously through the teeth, lips placed as if you are about to whistle.  Do not allow the chest to slump, hold the chest firmly extended and draw the abdomen in and upwards as if you are pressing the air from the body. 


Inhale and relax the chest, the head with chin near chest in a reverential pose.  Do some regular breaths until you are ready to repeat the Revitalizing Breath.  Be aware as you rest a while that you are drawing in the Energy of the Divine; the Life Force.


In your mind, say some affirmations to guide the process and mind-body connection to wellness and vitality.
