Just Breathe!

Dear friends,

Abigail here, checking in from the House of Mystery in Las Vegas. 

One of the easiest ways to change your state of mind is by changing how you breathe. Our respiration is directly connected to our nervous system, and when we are agitated or frightened, our breathing becomes shallow and rapid. Slowing the breath, and letting the exhale be a little longer than the inhale, shifts us from the sympathetic nervous system response of “fight or flight,” into the parasympathetic system of “tend and befriend.” 

My intuition tells me that even by your reading these words, your breathing has already started to shift, and perhaps, even now, you’re feeling a bit calmer than you were just a moment ago.

About a month ago, we started adding the Mindful Moments to our Mystery School Monday live shows, and the response has been just lovely. I appreciate the kind words, and am thankful to know that this kind of real magic is helpful, as we navigate these challenging times.

“It always seemed to me they’re sort of alike…magic and music. Spells and tunes. For one thing, you have to get them just exactly right.”

I know there are some who are trying to figure out what to do with themselves and their time as the days go by, but here at the Magic & Mystery School, we are running on full steam ahead. We are creating new offerings for the online programs, and a number of new classes have just been listed. It is important to stay connected to each other, and to feel like we are using our time productively. Improving our skills by learning in class is a great way to stay productive. So, I’ve been writing copy, helping Jeff with ideas, playing music, and tending the fires of our communities. We’re keeping the lights on and shining more brightly than ever.

I have a number of friends who are working in the health care industry, “on the front lines.”  Periodically, I reach out to them, and thought I would share with you what I recently sent to them. Please enjoy, and feel free to share with anyone you know who is working on the front lines, or who you think would benefit from reading it….

Good evening dear heart. This is a wave of love, coming into the shore of your consciousness right now. This love is washing over you, from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, and as it does, it is washing away all that no longer serves the highest good in the physical, mental, and emotional realms.

What it leaves behind is deep peace – a soft. slow, deep breath, and a calm that is beyond understanding.

Breathing in, you know you are connected to a whole group of hearts who appreciate you, support you, and care about you. Breathing out, you relax completely.

You are doing great work, every single day, and you are appreciated for it by people you don’t know, and may never meet. But, we are thinking about you, envisioning you safe and well, surrounded by light, able to do what must be done, and able to get through these challenging times.

These waves keep coming, just like the breath.

“I gracefully and easily release all that no longer serves the highest good….
I gratefully and easily receive the blessings the Universe has for me.”

… thinking of you.
