Breathing In Spirit

"The word inspire comes from two Latin words: in (in) and spirare (to breathe).  Spirare, in turn, is related to the Latin spirit.  Thus, the word inspire was used in older times to indicate that someone was "breathing in spirit," or drawing in divine energy."

to the sometimes irreverent, but more often 'present' pages of the mind and heart of Noreen. AKA.. Medit8ng.

In and amongst these pages you will find a few glimpses into my artistic mind, and my poetic heart.

Born a scribe into a family of gifted, and emerging souls, I am called to find a way to express the messages that spirit has instilled within me. For exactly what purpose that expression is being called, I have yet to discover.

Journey with me. And perhaps together we can discover the undiscovered.

Taking Time to Breathe..

When I take a few minutes to stop everything and simply breathe, I find that my whole perspective shifts.

I can quickly go from agitated and anxious to grounded and centered. 

Things that had me tense and scattered can be seen from a more calm and detached perspective.  And I'm better able to respond with the self awareness that I am perpetually seeking.

And I have found that with meditation, the more time that I take to practice it, the more it becomes an easy, effective connection to my inner core.  That place where it is said that God resides.

So if only for that reason, it is worth it to take a few minutes each day.

If you are like me, you might like to take every opportunity you can to stop and take a few minutes to simply breathe. 

I love this meditation timer that I found over on poodwaddle.  Try it on for size..  Set it for a couple minutes, click on the music bar to select a bit of background ambiance, and then..  Breathe.. 
In..  and out..   Ahhhh... 

See..  Wasn't that nice?!
