So essentially you are swapping your thoughts of the past or possible future for observing the breath. As the breath is always taking place in the now- it is in the present moment, and observing the breath literally switches one from nhf (not here frequency- thinking of the past or future) or ophf (only partially here frequency)  to hf (here frequency). It’s like a time machine that takes you into the present moment.

When one is feeling down or upset, it is often due to some dig sit ontop of othersituation running through one’s mind. An unconscious person may spend hours, days or week mulling over it, feeling angry or victimized, a conscious person would more likely, visit it from time to time, sit in the feeling and really feel it. Locate it on the body, breath in and out from this place, and perhaps enter into the feeling of compassion, forgiveness, appreciation and love. The feeling will naturally resolve itself and the person will return to peace. In the process, they may ask themselves questions like:

-       How would I feel if I didn't have this thought?

-   - Am I, without being aware of it, torturing myself mentally with unpleasant thoughts?    Is this an illusion? Am I causing my own suffering? Is this thought real? What is the opposite of this thought- how does that feel?question-mark-colors-hi

One then sets a clear intention, that is, imagining and feeling a desired outcome, letting it go and return to doing whatever job is at hand, while observing their breath.

There is no right or wrong way, and a conscious person may deal with the situation exactly as they feel guided to do so. The main difference is that in the conscious response, one takes responsibility for themselves, sees the bigger picture and acts accordingly and in the unconscious response one may automatically react, blame others and not take responsibility for themself.

Being highly sensitive

Dear friends,

Have you come across the term "highly sensitive?"

It's a term I'm familiar with having had to learn about my own sensitivity in order to survive living in this world! Furthermore it has helped me let go of that which doesn't work for me and turn my life into a more enjoyable journey.

Below you will find a link sent to me by a lovely friend, to a talk by specialist, Elain Aron, on "highly sensitive poeple". It is a lovely talk and well worth the listen if this is a theme in your life or someone you know. Here is some of what she has to say:

  • Your trait is normal. It is found in 15 to 20% of the population–too many to be a disorder, but not enough to be well understood by the majority of those around you.
  • It is innate. In fact, biologists have found it in over 100 species (and probably there are many more) from fruit flies, birds, and fish to dogs, cats, horses, and primates. This trait reflects a certain type of survival strategy, being observant before acting. The brains of highly sensitive persons (HSPs) actually work a little differently than others'.
  • You are more aware than others of subtleties. This is mainly because your brain processes information and reflects on it more deeply. So even if you wear glasses, for example, you see more than others by noticing more.
  • You are also more easily overwhelmed. If you notice everything, you are naturally going to be overstimulated when things are too intense, complex, chaotic, or novel for a long time.
  • This trait is not a new discovery, but it has been misunderstood. Because HSPs prefer to look before entering new situations, they are often called "shy." But shyness is learned, not innate. In fact, 30% of HSPs are extraverts, although the trait is often mislabeled as introversion. It has also been called inhibitedness, fearfulness, or neuroticism. Some HSPs behave in these ways, but it is not innate to do so and not the basic trait.
  • Sensitivity is valued differently in different cultures. In cultures where it is not valued, HSPs tend to have low self-esteem. They are told "don't be so sensitive" so that they feel abnormal.

Did you know that being highly sensitive has also lots of benefits!?

Remember all weaknesses can be turned into strengths :) Being highly sensitive enables me to feel the energy of a person by just focusing on them, looking at them or meeting them. It definitely forms the back bone of my work and does so for many including great artits, musicians, parents, carers and more. There are some great insights and tips in this audio. I hope you enjoy it. To appreciating each other, and

with loving kindness,


Ps Sometimes "Highly Sensitives" just need peace and quiet and to get away from it all, digest all the data input they've been experiencing and tune into their inner self and rhythm. This is often where relationships can run into difficulty. If time out is not permitted for oneself, people may turn against each other in the relationship, mistaking a need for time out with thinking it is someone else's fault that one is feeling this way. If you are highly sensitive, make sure you arrange time out for yourself regularly, you'll find you'll feel much calmer, happier and all your relationships will benefit :)
