There are many ways we block our connection to our divine messages and intuition. We cannot feel the energy in our body to integrate the wisdom if we are not grounded and present.
Forgetting to breathe deeply is one way we can block connection. When we are stressed, we can hold our breath, or our breath can become shallow. We slip into fight, flight or freeze mode. When we forget to breathe, we are in the freeze part of the stress response. Our bodies are trying to become invisible to threats.
From this energy we are hyper aware of the perceived threat. When we don’t breathe or breathe deeply our organs think we are dying. Our body rushes the oxygen to our hearts to keep us alive. This affects all of our organs. Our body’s awareness focuses to staying alive.
We lose our ability to think and to feel energy on our skin so we cannot sense information. We forget how to interact with the world.
Our other senses are reduced, and we cannot feel intuitive energy.
Just like a rabbit we are frozen and stuck. A rabbit will start to make small movements and shift to test if it is safe. Once the threat is understood, it will either continue to eat or move away. If we don’t breathe, we can stay stuck and it becomes a pattern of not taking action.
To help open your energy to feel intuition easier, take 3 deep breathes in through your nose feeling the breath expand to your hips. Hold this breath for a count of 3 and then release it out your mouth to open energy and greater awareness.
