Mindfulness

What is Mindfulness?

It is not possible to move in two directions at the same time...

So whilst we are wasting our energy fighting against what we don’t want, we make no progress towards what we do want.

 

Ever wonder where the good and enjoyable times go as we rush through life?  Do you find that you are spending a great deal of your time thinking about the future or the past, while the present slips by?

Is your mind racing, thinking ahead, worrying, judging, whilst you are feeling stressed to the max, anxious or overwhelmed? Do you often find yourself on automatic pilot?

Mindfulness keeps your attention in the present moment. The goal "is simply to observe- with no intention of changing or improving anything."  Mindfulness enables us to live each and every moment to the fullest. Mindfulness is a means of observing and accepting what is occurring at the time, instead of demanding how things should be.  Accepting what happens in our mind just as it is right now, with all the positives and negatives, often leads to increased confidence, calmer moods, and enhanced coping skills. Mindfulness is awareness of the moment- something that is beneficial in many aspects of life such as working, talking, playing, or eating.  Tuning into the present moment is what mindfulness is about.

Practicing mindfulness on a daily basis may not be as easy as it sounds.  We offer one to one or when interest dictates group support / workshops for Mindfulness.  A group provides practice and support to help you to begin making changes.  In a group you will learn to shake off anxiety and enjoy total rest and quieten your mind.  You will be refreshed and gain a broader and clearer view of life. You can develop a deeper and stronger belief in your abilities; you learn to respond more helpfully and effectively to what is happening around you.

Hara Breathing.

 

Hara breathing: is done to relieve the body, mind, and spirit of all types of stress.  If you feel weak or overwhelmed, scared or angry, breathing into the hara will ease these feelings.  Breathing into the hara region allows you to contact your reservoir of energy, and then helps you to root it.  In so doing, you are bringing into your being the vibration of optimal health. 

Technique ~ Breathe in through the nose for a gentle count of three to your (Stomach) rather than lungs, then breathe out of the mouth as if you were fogging a mirror or glass for a gentle count of three / four to ensure you have fully exhaled.  

If you feel odd / unwell return to your natural breathing pattern.  Seek medical advice if it persists.

Click the <Link> to listen to our breathing regulation track, breathe along with it, in through the nose for the count of 3 and out through the mouth for the count of 3. 

Breathing is the key to relaxation and focus, progression from the traditional steady count to 3 in (through nostrils) and 3 out (through mouth), practice this little and often, as it can take a while for you to become comfortable with the practice.

Once you have mastered the 3 in / 3 out, progress is made gently with practice time at each stage too.

Next stage is 3 in / 5 out
then 5 in / 5 out
next 5 in / 8 out (build up to the next step at your own pace) it may take a while to achieve!!


then to the optimum level of 9 in / 11 out. 

f at any time whilst following these exercises you feel feint, light headed or otherwise unwell revert to your normal respiration.  It will take some time to be able to maintain regulated breathing, however, regular practice will help develop your breathing.

NB.  When breathing out for longer periods you may well feel your heart beating stronger too, this is quite normal, however, if you feel light headed etc, return to your normal breathing practice.  The more often you try the Hara Breathing method the longer you will be able to maintain it for...

So... MarksMindfulMovement (MMMs), it's a combination of breathing exercises, also gentle exercise and movement as practiced by the Budhist Monks, also Tai Chi and Yoga style formations too.  Once studied the MMMs can be carried out as part of a daily / regular spiritual connection / Mindfulness practice.
