Breathe In Trust
Our Divine Download for October 1, 2022 is Dolphin/Manna from the Medicine Cards. Manna is life force. Manna is present in every atom and is the essence of the Great Spirit, the divine. It revitalizes each cell and organ, and breaks the limits and dimensions of physical reality so that we can enter dream time and commune between worlds, between plains of existence. Dolphin speaks to us of the breath of life, which is the only things that humans cannot live without. We can live without water and food for days, but oxygen which we receive through our breath is the true source of our sustenance. Within our breath we encounter and connect with the rhythm of energy that all life emits. In paying attention to, being mindful and conscious of the rhythm of our own breath, we can tap into any other life form or creature. It is through our breath that it is the easiest way to connect with divine energy and the Great Spirit. It is through awareness of our own breath that we can connect with our own personal rhythm. Our breath is one of the greatest tools that we have because it is always with us. By being mindful of the rhythm and quality of our breath, we can change our entire experience. So often we forget to breathe. We clench up and hold our breath when we are stressed, scared, sad, or trying to make ourselves smaller in some way to be safe, even though those are the very circumstances in which we need the full connection with our breath most. Take full deep breaths as often as you can remember to do so, remembering to blow away anything that doesn't feel good or no longer serves you with a demonstrative exhale. Use your tool. Connect with your breath. Let it nurture you and connect you.
