In my dream I had been underwater. While I still need time to fully understand the messages of the dream the emotion was clear. And waking with a gasp was a little alarming.
As far as I know I have never stopped breathing in my sleep before. A couple hours later as I get up my lungs are still sore.
Breathing is a basic need and I'm grateful I generally do not have to think about it. I'm grateful to consciously make my breaths deeper and to use techniques with my breath to help me relax. I'm grateful my body recognized the need for air and woke me last night. I'm grateful to have all my basic needs met and then some. I'm grateful for all the blessings in my life. And I'm grateful to take a deep breath and see clearly how abundant those blessings are.
What simple things have you been taking for granted? When was the last time you consciously took a slow, deep breath?
May today open our eyes to all the blessings we may be taking for granted. May we cherish each day. Have a beautiful day!
