Breathe and Balance

Meditation for the Negative Mind

The negative mind isn't a bad thing-- it's the gatekeeper, the guard dog, warning and charging at any perceived threat to body, mind or soul. It's vital to have the critical mind to discern what is safe and what is treacherous. Where things get out of whack, is when you aren't balanced-- haven't cleared out old patterns and perceptions that view certain things in life as dangerous, when they're really not, because you aren't a child anymore, because now you have the capability to deal with challenges that were once threatening. This gentle, breath meditation serves to clear the subconscious of unwanted negative or fearful thoughts, so that your mind can give you clear signals to protect and to promote you to your lightest & brightest.
