Any time you feel you have a lack of abundance, simply the best thing you can do is kindly replace it by filling your lungs up with air. I heard recently that on a daily basis, each of us is using our available lung capacity to 12%. No idea if that’s true or not but I honestly believe that’s probably pretty accurate. Breath is the most powerful gift! When you begin to breathe, you begin to come alive again. Do you notice how you catch your breath whenever you get hurt? Whenever you are focused, overwhelmed, or stressed? The more you catch your breathe, the more you get used to holding emotions in. The minute you begin to breathe again is the minute you discover abundance. We spend most of our lives holding in our emotions because its what we’ve taught ourselves. I don’t know about you, but I have not been breathing to my fullest potential. If you know me, you know I’m a deep feeler and welcome emotions, however I always circle back around to this realization— actually breathing through it will be a life-long practice. Feel your heart rhythms change as you release whatever you are holding onto. I’m always so surprised what deep breathing can do. Our bodies were created this way for a reason!
I absolutely love the lyrics to the song ‘Great Are You Lord’ by Jason Ingram (@allsanddmusic). I just lose it every time we sing this song. “You give life, You are love, You bring light to the darkness, You give hope, You restore every heart that is broken, Great are You Lord // It’s Your breath in our lungs, so we pour out our praise, we pour out our praise to You only.” —
I absolutely cannot do this on my own, that’s for sure. I am so grateful that I am human and He is God, and it is He who breathes this very life into me! I couldn’t even imagine life otherwise. I hope this encouraged you, and if anything just was a gentle reminder to breathe deeply. ❤️
