Let’s pretend we’re creating your mantra – three words you say to yourself when you need motivation, inspiration, courage or strength. What is YOUR three word mantra?
Actually, I teach it as Release / Receive / Release / Resist.
- Release: The lower abdominal muscles so that you can:
- Receive: The air as it enters your body
- Release: The exhalation
- Resist: The flow of the air
Resistance isn’t restriction. We aren’t restricting or constricting. We are managing the airflow.
How does this apply to our lives? Pretty much the same thing.
We release our intentions so that we can receive what needs to come. And then we act (release) but we are mindful of what those actions involve and we manage the outcome so that life just doesn’t happen to us.
Singing is life. Life is singing. Rinse and repeat.
(Ooh, that’s a good mantra, too. Never mind the other. Just rinse and repeat.)
