Take a Breath! Then Read This. (Then Repost on Your Blog)



Taken from Dave and Jess' new site-
THE FLOATING HOUSE.

Great Info! and Congratulations to Dave for completing his Kundalini Yoga Certification :) Norm would be proud!

"Breathing: are you doing it backwards? Chances are you might be. A lot of people contract, pulling in their stomach or navel point when inhaling. This is breathing backwards! Maybe you do it because you don’t want to pouch out your gut while you breathe. Maybe you do it because you bring all the air into your chest cavity, completely neglecting your diaphragm. Maybe you do it because your abs are so rock solid that you couldn’t expand your navel center if you tried (I highly doubt this is the case).

Whatever the reason, whatever the excuse, let’s work on this together. I quickly became aware of my own shortcomings while studying *Pranayam.

When you inhale your navel point should move out while you expand fully, and then move in and up while you exhale completely. We make ourselves wider when we inhale, and longer when we exhale. So sit with a straight spine and really feel yourself raising up and elongating when you exhale, and widening to your full capacity when inhaling.


”The mind follows the breath. The key to controlling the mind is in controlling the breath.”
Again, thanks Dave for sharing.

WHY BREATH WELL?

Consider this: (from Breathing.com)

* Science has proven that cancer is anaerobic - it does not survive in high levels of oxygen.
* Shortness of breath and heart disease are directly linked - the heart goes into spasm when it is deprived of oxygen.
* Studies have shown that there is a high correlation between high blood pressure and poor breathing.
* Most emotional issues, including anxiety and depression, result from the nervous system being out of balance. Breathing drives the nervous system.
* Optimal Breathing helps to promote weight loss. Oxygen burns fat and calories.
* Breathing well is the key to sleeping well and waking up feeling rested.
* Breathing provides 99% of your energy. Without energy, nothing works.
* Virtually every health condition and human activity is improved with Optimal Breathing.


HAPPY BREATHING!!!

got my mind made up

Many paths to follow.
Many roads to travel.
Which is the best to take?
Each leads where you need to be
Relax and Enjoy the Ride.

Creator- SantoGold



thought i'd share these lyrics. :)

CREATOR
Got no need for the fancy things
All the attention that it brings
Tell me no, I say yes, I was chosen
And I will deliver the explosion

Can't say it's gonna get me far
Do no good to say what you are
I run the streets and I break up houses
River runs deep and the flame devours it

Me, I'm a Creator
Thrill is to make it up
The rules I break got me a place
Up on the radar
Me, I'm a Taker
Know what the stakes are
Can't roll it back, it's understood
Got to play our cards

Me, I'm a Creator
Thrill is to make it up
The rules I break got me a place
Up on the radar
Me, I'm a Taker
Know what the stakes are
Can't roll it back, it's understood
Got to play our cards

Sit tight I know what you are
mad bright but you ain't no star
polish up til you make it gleam
your M.O, I know what you mean
Tail ridin' and I know it's true
while they screamin' I love you
Down deep you know there aint no flow
a soul decay, was D.O.A

I know what you here for now
Words out you're an idea whore though,
now don't you crush on me
I'll see you in your pipe dreams
whether or not you know it's true
You're who they dictate to
That shit must hurt real bad
fakin' what you wish you had

Me, I'm a Creator
Thrill is to make it up
The rules I break got me a place
Up on the radar
Me, I'm a Taker
Know what the stakes are
Can't roll it back, it's understood
Got to play our cards

Here all the folks come ask about me
Band wagon, know they used to doubt me
Blind side tend to hit real hard
you should heed the warning, get a body guard
Steady friction in this bitch
Creepin' in just like an itch
so far I got the last laugh
still the rich rise up, still I live fast
wouldn't know it face to face
Got no soul and got no taste
Moving in speed up the pace
I got it locked though, what a waste
All the talk is standard fare
Walk the walk if it gets you there
on the grind til the gig is up
Im 'a smash 'em down
put a muzzle on them like "what!"

Me, I'm a Creator
Thrill is to make it up
The rules I break got me a place
Up on the radar
Me, I'm a Taker
Know what the stakes are
Can't roll it back, it's understood
Got to play our cards

better than fine



Fiona Apple
Waltz (Better than Fine)
If you don't have a song
To sing you're okay
You know how to get along
Humming

If you don't have a date
Celebrate
Go out and sit on the lawn
And do nothing
'Cause it's just what you must do
Nobody does it anymore

No I don't believe in the wasting of time,
But I don't believe that I'm wasting mine

If you don't have a point to make
Don't sweat it
You'll make a sharp one being so kind
And I'd sure appreciate it
Everyone else's goal's to get big headed
Why should I follow that beat being that I'm
Better than fine
