A Pause Practice

"The work of magic is this, it breathes, and every breath transforms reality."

~ Rumi

It is easy to stay wrapped up in conditioned thinking and feeling habits, so pausing can help you to step outside your "normal self" for a few moments.

To bring more magic into your day, Buddhist teacher Pema Chödrön offers a wonderful pause practice. You can use this simple technique anytime you need a break from your habitual thought and emotional patterns.

Here is the Pause Practice:

1. When you are feeling stuck in a negative pattern, take a moment to step outside your conditioned cocoon by taking three conscious breaths. Breathe in through your nose and breathe out through your mouth.

2. Drop the storyline that you normally maintain. Receive and absorb your surroundings for a few moments. Feel the sacredness, the stillness and the magic that is in your life right now.

3. Do this simple practice 1-3 times a day to reconnect with the immediacy of your experience. To create a gap in your thinking, you can do this pause practice anytime.
