It’s #MindfulMonday, Just #Breathe

We can be easily overwhelmed at the start of a new week. There’s so much to do; where do we begin?! Remember to breathe. Emanuel Swedenborg “had begun in early childhood to experiment with respiration. He noticed that thought synchronizes with breathing; in fact, thoughts “flow in,” as does the air in breathing. Thus he discovered at an early age the “stream of consciousness” as it later came to be known in Western literature.”

My breathing was developed by the Lord in such a way that I was able to breathe inwardly for quite a long time without the help of outside air, so the breathing was directed inwardly,(Swedenborg, SD 3317)
