Let Me Breathe (A One-Minute Meditation)

Let me breathe out the battles I wage with others, and even within myself, and breathe in profound peace.
Let me breathe out hate and then fill my lungs, and my life, with love.
Let me breathe out illness and breathe in health.
Let me release my need to be in lack with a single, great exhalation, and breathe in the truth of my own abundance.
Let me breathe out the negativity that no longer serves me, releasing it back into the wild and freeing me from all that came before this moment.
And then, finally, let me breathe in, filling me from head to toe with the truth of who I am.


Last night, I was editing my book and I found this… oh, I don’t know what to call it. Perhaps it is a prayer or wish or meditation. I don’t know. Anyway, these words came through me last fall and when I found them, I felt compelled to post them here.

I’m sharing my plea for freedom with the hope that it will reach everyone who has forgotten to let go of the old so they may reconnect with their own powerful, beautiful truth. I invite you to add to my thoughts anything that you’re releasing (breathe out) and creating (breathe in) both in the comments below and as you breathe in and out throughout the days that follow.

If it feels true for you to share this, please do and know that I appreciate you.

I LOVE how deep breathing can help me relax, focus my thoughts, and reduce muscle tension. And it only takes a few minutes.
