We are one week away from completion! It has been a fun year full of challenges and overcoming. I am so excited that we are almost complete with these changes/challenges and hope that you have used each week to better your life the way that I will continue to do so.
One of the most powerful things that I have learned from one of chiropractic mentors, Dr. Sid Williams, is the 49 Breaths Meditation. I have done this off and on throughout the years. Sadly, I took a break and then got back on the calls this year. You don’t have to do the calls to take advantage of this great, ground breaking tool. You can do it on your own or with the family even. This exercise is something that has really impacted me in my life and I wanted to share it with you. It has grounded me, offered more commitment, grown my faith, offered community with my fellow chiropractors, allowed me to be a better person, serve with more love in my heart and much more! It is worth the 10 minutes a day or a few times a day for sure!
If you are wanting to join the calls, you are more than welcome to listen in and see the flow of how they are done. They are done Monday through Friday with the exception of holidays. The call is mostly chiropractors from the United States that are joining in for community, like-mindedness, affirmations and encouragement. We help pump each other up for the day. There are 2 calls a day. The first is the East Coast call and it is at 6am EST and the other is the West Coast call at 6:45 PST. I get on the West Coast call because that works better for my schedule. The number to get on the call is 218.844.1930 and the access code is 6141535#. Please feel free to get on either call and mute your phone to listen in.
If you are wanting to try the 49 Breaths on your own, that is great too! Start by sitting upright in a chair, feet firmly on the ground, palms up. We first start with 7 breaths. When we breathe in, we tilt out head back during the inhale and during the exhale we bring our chin to our chest. We do this 7 times in a row when doing 7 breaths or 14 times in a row when doing 14 breaths. In between each set of breaths we do a positive affirmation. The overall flow goes as follows:
For the affirmation part, you can say anything that is suiting to you. We stick to service and chiropractic on the call but when I do them by myself, they are more fitting to my personal life and goals. For example, I might say, “Things in my life flow with perfection. I have ease, peace and love existing in my life. Any hardships are merely blessed lessons that will lead me to even more success and abundance in my life. I attract wonderful and blissful things into my life. I am surrounded by support, love and light.”
Some affirmations are longer, some may be shorter. There is no right or wrong in the affirmations as long as they are positive, direct and spoken with intention and authority. You have to believe it and even if you don’t at first, in time you will speak it with unshakable faith.
As I mentioned already, please feel free to join us in the morning on the call. Even if just for the first few times to get the general flow. I wish you well on your journey of truly transforming your mind, body and soul! Good luck as you continue this transformative journey! I know that each week we are all closer to a more whole, happier version of ourselves. Give yourself a hug or pat on the back for all your weeks of hard work! Week 52 next week!!!
