Breathing: taking in air, letting it out. We hold it briefly, then exhale - a constant series of inhaling and exhaling. It's automatic: we do it and without even knowing we do it unless we consciously direct it. My big revelation was this: I had to let air out in order for more to take its place. I had to let go to make room for more.
There is a rhythm present in the universe, a moving pulsating presence of power manifesting in everything both physical and mental. It is predictable, measurable motion, to and fro, foward and backward, in and out. This natural rhythm is present in all things, seen and not seen. If I were to hold my breath, I would consciously block the good fresh, incoming air from entering the body. The breath of llife would be stopped - not for long, because there is a backup system. If I were to hold my breath long enough I will pass out, and the system of nature takes over again. The universe is always for expansion and fuller expression. It is for life not death, and we must get ourselves out of the way so that this natural power, ever present, can take over and give to us.
What I am saying is that we can block our good by holding on to tightly to what we have. In order to get more we must be willing to let go of what we already have. It could also be stated this way: increase comes out of what we already have. This is why, for example, it is so important to begin sharing or putting back into circulation the money in your life - even if you don't have much.
In the health retreat, one of our workshops is exploring the giving and receiving cycle of all energy and breaking our money myths. A fun and creative exercise we do in the retreat is called "three steps to turn around your limiting beliefs about money". After completing this exercise you will be able to look at your financial situation with clarity and be in a position to attract the wealth you really want. It's fun and it's simple.
