Inhale: DON”T WORRY
Exhale: BE HAPPY
While trekking in the Himalayas last year with Swami ji (my translator at our eye camp 2 years ago) he said to me “Oh if we can only stop you from worrying and surrender, this is the secret” Okay. How do I do that? He smiled back and said
“Don’t worry it will happen.”
This is what we’ve got so far:
We learned that like attracts like from our magnet theory.
So worrying is praying for what we don’t want to happen!
Sounds good on paper but how do we translate the very real concerns we have; mortgage, children, jobs, cats, delay on your internet server, out of stock again of our favorite coconut water at Whole Foods. I mean these are all very real issues. Is it really that simple to Bobby McFerrin Don’t Worry Be Happy our woes away? Yes and No.
We have to fake it till we make it a little. Once in the heaviness of a situation we can’t just whistle it away. Our heavy vibrational frequency isn’t matching the happy non worry feeling we desire. We need to get the proper alignment so that we can have that positive flow of energy (starting to notice a common theme?) This is why we are doing the breath techniques and super simple positive mantras.
So today lets fake it till we make it:
Inhale: Don’t Worry
Exhale: Be Happy
Now Believe it! Remember you’re not the driver of the boat.
Feel free to forward this onto to those you love and those that you need to love more.
The best part about meditation is that we can do it anywhere. Whether in the serenity of our homes, on the train, bus, cab, yoga mat, in the shower, and in the rain! However, while operating heavy machinery, meditation is strongly ill-advised. It’s said we breathe 20,000 times a day — SO many opportunities to send out love, peace, and inspiration.
Just close your eyes and focus on the space between your eye brows, your third-eye and the window to your imagination and INHALE Don’t Worry, EXHALE Be Happy. Rinse, Breathe, Repeat (no matter where you may be).
Laughing is Contagious, it Starts with You.
With Prem, Parvati
