Destress + Reset / Contemplation 2
Before resting into the meditation check the contraindications HERE
Proceeding with the practice conveys your understanding
The receptive "Earth over Earth''
Pure Yin receives energy from all space.
"When people see things as beautiful, ugliness is created.
When people see things as good, evil is created.
Being and non-being produce each other. Difficult and easy compliment each other. Long and short define each other.
High and low oppose each other.
Fore and aft follow each other.
Therefore the Ma
She has without possessing, and acts without any expectations.
When her work is done, she takes no credit.
That is why it will last forever." Translation of Tao Te Ching by J. H. McDonald 1996
Shadow - Dislocation
Our human perception convinces our physiology and our biology that we are separate. A yearning for home, completion, unity. A every man for himself mentality, the Lone Wolf...feigning separateness, and uniqueness. Dislocated by our human consciousness. This measuring of comparison steals the is-ness of being, all of these labels that trick us into thinking we know what something is.
Gift - Orientation
How do we know what to do in life? How do we know what is right for us? When you feel lost, numb, into the void, trust the flow. Trust and find your way by finding where life is trying to take you. Surrender and your orientation will find you. Remove your judgments about what you think things should be.
Siddhi - Unity
You are no longer following the flow of the river, you disappear, and only know yourself as the water. Effortlessly living in non-duality, fully locked in the dance of quote on quote mystery. There is no try, there is only do…and be. You trust in everything that happens to you. Faith exalted allows a magnetization of alignment.
"Be water, my friend.
Empty your mind.
Be formless, shapeless, like water.
You put water into a cup, it becomes the cup.
You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle.
You put water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. " -Bruce Lee
Name one place in your life where judgements or assumptions on how things should be are holding you back.
Find the BS rules that you might be living by without questioning why.
These things might be societally or ancestrally indoctrinated and keeping you living those same epigenetic patterns.

Intermittent Hypoxic Training, and therefore breath holding to create brief intermittent hypoxia as guided in SOMA Breath, should NOT be practiced in the case of any of the following:
Severe/critical diseases or infections
COPD-II and COPD-III
Organ failure or late-stage terminal illness
Cancer (Exception: your doctor gives you specific permission)
If you have epilepsy, a pacemaker, or irregular heart beat (Exception: your doctor gives you specific permission).
What if I am a person with any of the contraindications?
You will still gain enormous benefits from this course. The rhythmic breathing and visualization techniques will help you tremendously.
Simply stay away from the breath retention unless you are supervised by your health professional.
***DO NOT practice this in water nor while driving or operating any kind of machinery.
Note: It may aggravate Tinnitus however if you breathe softly, this shouldn't be an issue.
