Free Meditation Just Breathe
Take a moment now to step into the sacred space of YOU.
Close your eyes, take a nice deep breath and
CONNECT WITH YOUR SOUL.
As you breathe in focus on the sensations breathing brings to your body.
Are you breathing from your belly? or from your chest?
To get the most benefits of breath be sure that your stomach expands as you breathe in and falls as you breathe out. This is called belly breathing.
If you have children take a moment to lie on the floor with them and teach them how to belly breathe.
Remember to take nice deep cleansing breaths throughout your day and you will find yourself more relaxed and at peace when the day is done.
Now, take a moment and think of someone, anyone, you know.
Go with the first person that pops into your mind. Every time you breathe in imagine them breathing in and every time you breathe out imagine them breathing out.
Connect with their energy…
Now as you breathe out, imagine your breath surrounding them with unconditional love, grateful they are in your life.
This is called Lovingkindness Meditation and it is VERY powerful.
Affirmation for today:
I am strong. I am secure. I am LOVE.
Awaken to the beauty that lies within you and it shall be mirrored in all you see.

Julie, My husband has a Master’s Degree in voice and for years he has taught the importance of breathing correctly. One day after our first child was born, I had worked soooo hard to get her to sleep. Suddenly, I heard my husband calling for me. I didn’t know whether to be frightened or angry that she would be awake! David pointed to her little body and said, “Look. Take a close look. Babies breath correctly!”
Love that!! Thanks for sharing. ♥
This is one interesting activity to try one. I wanna do this with the whole family.
Thanks for the meditation and the reminder to breathe. Thanks also for stopping by this weekend to my blog when I was at a low point.
This is really a special meditation and was very helpful to me this morning. Thank you.
I love the simplicity of this lovely exercise! Beautiful, and so much like my butterflies. For me, Wonder and Beauty are at the core of it all, bringing peace, trust and joy to my deepest heart. That’s how I connect with the butterflies. Just like breathing. Hugs and butterflies, ~Teresa~
What a beautiful meditation, Julie. I love that you remind us to include our children as well. Very important to remember that. It is what we can help carry through to the generations to come. Belly breathing!
Thank you for the reminder, I am really bad at this. I know I shallow breathe and I forget to use my full breath. I aim to do it when I meditate; but I want to find a way to carry it through into the rest of my life.
I love the idea of sending love to someone while I breathe, it’s a beautiful practise and a great incentive. I will be trying it more often.
Julie – the first time I did it completely kept all the air behind my ribs, second time into the belly. Much better! My friend Andrea does a free loving kindness mediation once a month it’s a great way to start out a new month.
Julie, such a simple thing as breathe, is just so important in relaxing, centering ourselves and connecting to Source. I really love your quote! Thank you. We all need reminders of the inner beauty that lies within!
