Meditation to Build Self-Esteem

Here is a guided meditation you can use to help build self-esteem. Sit in a comfortable position, with your back straight, breathe in as you read the breathing in lines and breathe out as you read the breathing out lines.

Breathing in, I am aware of my breath going in

Breathing out, I am aware of my breath going out

Breathing in, I am present in my body

Breathing out, I am present in time and space

Breathing in, I invite a new perspective on myself

Breathing out, I empty my mind

Breathing in, I give myself the gift of fresh air

Breathing out, I give back to the world

Breathing in, I recognize that I suffer from my self-esteem

Breathing out, I wish to change that habit

Breathing in, I recognize that I am human

Breathing out, I know that being human hurts

Breathing In, I feel the pain and sadness

Breathing out, I give that to the world

Breathing in, I feel the world’s suffering

Breathing out, I send the world peace

Breathing in, I am connected to all people

Breathing out, I wish people to be free of suffering

Breathing in, I am connected to myself

Breathing out, I wish to be free of suffering

Breathing in, I invite peace into my life

Breathing out, I share peace with the world

Breathing in, I see all people are equal

Breathing out, I join the sea of equality

Breathing in, I am no better than anybody

Breathing out, nobody is better than me

Breathing in, I am only what I am

Breathing out, I am enough

Breathing in, I connect with my essential goodness

Breathing out, I share my goodness with the world

Breathing in, I know new thoughts may unsettle me

Breathing out, I let my thoughts go.

Breathing in, I am present in my body

Breathing out, I am present in time and space

Breathing in, I am aware of my breath going in

Breathing out, I am aware of my breath going out

Holy Saturday – 15 April – The Lord’s descent into hell 

 The Creed proclaims “He descended into Hell.”    This homily for Holy Saturday from the 4th Century treats of the “harrowing of hell” and the rescue of Adam and Eve.  Note the parallels between Adam and Eve’s sin, which lost paradise for us and the passion of Christ, which won for us not simply an earthly paradise, but eternal life.   It was to the Limbo of the Fathers that Christ descended, a place of the dead that was emptied through His Passion, Resurrection and Ascension and no longer exists.   By this “Harrowing of Hell,” as His Descent is sometimes called, the doors to Heaven were swung open so that those who die in a state of grace may enter in, alleluia!   Adam, Eve, Noah, Abraham, Moses, the good thief on the cross — all the righteous were illuminated by the Presence of Christ in the place of death, making Sheol itself a paradise.   They remained there with Him until His Bodily Resurrection when the the “bars of Hell” were broken down and they were later able to enter into Heaven itself with His glorious Ascension.

“What is happening? Today there is a great silence over the earth, a great silence, and stillness, a great silence because the King sleeps; the earth was in terror and was still, because God slept in the flesh and raised up those who were sleeping from the ages. God has died in the flesh, and the underworld has trembled.

Truly he goes to seek out our first parent like a lost sheep; he wishes to visit those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death. He goes to free the prisoner Adam and his fellow-prisoner Eve from their pains, he who is God, and Adam’s son.

The Lord goes in to them holding his victorious weapon, his cross. When Adam, the first created man, sees him, he strikes his breast in terror and calls out to all: ‘My Lord be with you all.’ And Christ in reply says to Adam: ‘And with your spirit.’ And grasping his hand he raises him up, saying: ‘Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.

‘I am your God, who for your sake became your son, who for you and your descendants now speak and command with authority those in prison: Come forth, and those in darkness: Have light, and those who sleep: Rise.

‘I command you: Awake, sleeper, I have not made you to be held a prisoner in the underworld. Arise from the dead; I am the life of the dead. Arise, O man, work of my hands, arise, you who were fashioned in my image. Rise, let us go hence; for you in me and I in you, together we are one undivided person.

‘For you, I your God became your son; for you, I the Master took on your form; that of slave; for you, I who am above the heavens came on earth and under the earth; for you, man, I became as a man without help, free among the dead; for you, who left a garden, I was handed over to Jews from a garden and crucified in a garden.

‘Look at the spittle on my face, which I received because of you, in order to restore you to that first divine inbreathing at creation. See the blows on my cheeks, which I accepted in order to refashion your distorted form to my own image.

‘See the scourging of my back, which I accepted in order to disperse the load of your sins which was laid upon your back. See my hands nailed to the tree for a good purpose, for you, who stretched out your hand to the tree for an evil one.

`I slept on the cross and a sword pierced my side, for you, who slept in paradise and brought forth Eve from your side. My side healed the pain of your side; my sleep will release you from your sleep in Hades; my sword has checked the sword which was turned against you.

‘But arise, let us go hence. The enemy brought you out of the land of paradise; I will reinstate you, no longer in paradise, but on the throne of heaven. I denied you the tree of life, which was a figure, but now I myself am united to you, I who am life. I posted the cherubim to guard you as they would slaves; now I make the cherubim worship you as they would God.

“The cherubim throne has been prepared, the bearers are ready and waiting, the bridal chamber is in order, the food is provided, the everlasting houses and rooms are in readiness; the treasures of good things have been opened; the kingdom of heaven has been prepared before the ages.”

A reading from an ancient homily for Holy Saturday – prepared by Pontifical University Saint Thomas Aquinas, Rome.   While it appears that this comes from a Holy Saturday homily written in Greek dating back to the fourth century liturgy (PG 43, 439, 462f), the author of this text is unknown.

Note:

For our Edification – what does Hell mean?

Christ is in His tomb. Rather, His Body is in the tomb but when His Soul left His Body, He descended into Hell to “free the captives.”    “Hell” here refers to the place of the dead in general (“Sheol” in the Hebrew, or “Hades” in the Greek), not to the place of torment with which the word “Hell” is most usually associated with today.    The world “Hell” in the loosest, earliest sense includes:1.     the Limbo of the Fathers, the place for those who were righteous by charity and faith in the coming Messiah and who died before His Coming

2.     the Limbo of Infants, where, possibly, those who are sent who die without personal guilt but without Baptism after the time of Christ, or who died without charity and faith in the coming Messiah before the time of Christ.    This would be a place of beautiful, natural happiness, no punishment and no sensible suffering.

3.     Purgatory, where righteous people go to be cleansed of the temporal effects of their sins

4.     Gehenna, the “Hell of the Lost,” the eternal place of punishment for the damned, the place we usually refer to as simply “Hell” today

(Instructions: Set an alarm to ring after 20 minutes)

Hypnosis is quite an interesting subject. How someone’s words, Someone’s voice. Can make you believe or feel certain sensations. How those words, can make you believe things that don’t exist, things you’re only imaging.

Hallucinations

But that’s part of it’s beauty, how you can use it.

How you can use it to experience new things.

How you can experience in a safe, controlled environment.

How just by reading

Just by following those words

You can feel

You can sense

Whatever is being told to you

You can focus on those words

Feel what you’re reading

Feel it becoming true

becoming real

Accepting it

That’s the whole idea

To be able to experience those dreams

Those fantasies

In a safe

Secure

Controlled

Environment

You find as you read

There’s this smell

There’s a smell in the air

You really like that smell

It’s your favorite smell

Your favorite smell in the world

You take a deep breath in

Really liking that smell

But as soon as you do

You feel yourself becoming light headed

You feel yourself feeling light

Feeling Euphoric

Really liking how that felt

Realizing the smell is all over the room now

As you continue to read

Read my words

breathe in

Breathe deep

Each time

Feeling more light

More light headed

As you start getting sleepy

Getting sleepier and sleepier

With each breath you take

You don’t want to stop 

You’re really enjoying it

Realizing that if you contnue

You’ll soon drop

You’ll sleep

get knocked out

passing out

But you know this is a safe, secure environment

It will only be for a few minutes

So it’s alright

Let yourself go

Breath in deep

Enjoy it

Enjoy it to the fullest

 As you feel even more sleepy

So light headed

but waiting

Waiting for me to let you go

Knowing that once that happens you’ll drop

pass out

just for a few minutes

Knowing this is all safe

Because as soon as the alarm rings you’ll wake up

wake up completely

Remembering what happened

Enjoying what happened

How you could smell it. 

How each breath made you lighter

Sleepier

How you just wanted to keep on breathing

Until you feel

passed

dropped

very soon

As soon as you wake up you’ll feel refresh

Energized

Happy and wonderful

No longer smelling that smell

Wanting to reblog and describe the experience to me and everyone else

loving how you can still smell it now

breathing deep

deeper and deeper

your favorite smell

Just feeling happy and light headed

counting down to 1

dropping

passing

sleeping 

knocked out

3

so light headed

sleepy and happy

Just that smell

2

waking up as soon as the alarm rings

feeling refresh and energized

talking and sharing your experience

It is just dawn, daylight: that gray and lonely suspension filled with the peaceful and tentative waking of birds. The air, inbreathed, is like spring water. He breathes deep and slow, feeling with each breath himself diffuse in the natural grayness, becoming one with loneliness and quiet that has never known fury or despair.
—  William Faulkner, Light in August

goddamnaham  asked:

mshenko "Ever wonder if the world would be better off without you… ?"

“You ever think … the world might be better off without you?”

Kaidan grabbed Shepard’s hand and held it tight. “Don’t ever say that again.”

Shepard ran his free hand down his face. It was trembling. “Sorry,” he exhaled, “I’m just—”

No.“ Kaidan took Shepard’s chin and made Shepard look at him, pinned him with a look so intense it made Shepard’s breath catch. "No…” Kaidan said again, gentler, no longer a barked order. His hand cupped Shepard’s face, thumb stroking his cheek. “Don’t ever say that again.”

Shepard clenched his jaw and swallowed down the jitters trying to crawl their way out of his throat. The words made their way out, raw and grating. “I can’t do this, Kaidan.”

"You can,” Kaidan countered, then at Shepard’s hitching argumentive inbreath, interrupted “—hey. Hey…

Shepard tried to shake his head, eyes squeezed shut, but Kaidan’s hands held him steady. Rough-calloused hands bracing him, strong and steady, but gentle—catching him when he stumbled and holding him until he found his feet again. Kaidan’s hands on either side of his face, fingers in his hair behind his ear, tracing comfort lines along his jaw.

Kaidan’s voice, quiet in his ear. “You don’t have to carry it alone, John…” Kaidan’s lips against his forehead, stubble tickling his skin. “You’re not alone anymore. You’re not. I’ve got your back—we all do, John. I’ve got you.”

Inuvemeber- Inuyasha: Human or Demon?

Human -Of Monsters and Men

When the words weigh heavy on the heart
I am lost and led only by the stars

Breathe in, breathe out
Let the human in
Breathe in, breathe out
And let it in

Plants awoke and they slowly grow
Beneath the skin
So breathe in, breathe out
Let the human in

The air is silk, shadows form a grin
If I lose control I feed the beast within

Cage me like an animal
A crown with gems and gold…

a lil Scorbus thing to imagine
  • It’s early days into their separation.
  • and Albus and Scorpius are crossing adjacent staircases
  • Seeing eachother they both feeling that lump in their throat.
  • Scorpius loosens loosens his tie and looks away 
  • Albus strokes the silk of his own stupid Gryffindor tie but can’t break his gaze.
  • This wouldn’t hurt as much, they both think, if we hadn’t both been in Slytherin
  • If we hadn’t eat together, lived together, spent every waking moment together, maybe the separation wouldn’t kill.
  • Albus rips off the tie slamming it down on the marble steps 
  • When Scorpius looks back that is all he sees 
  • A red and gold tie sliding down the staircase 
  • As it floats past he grabs it
  • For some reason he can’t quite tell, he pulls it right up to his nose and breathes it in
  • Breathes Albus in.
  • And he smells like
  • The gel he uses to make his hair do something less Potter-y
  • An almost peppery smell that is Albus’ own sweat 
  • The faint scent of punch?
  • Scorpius smiles 
  • (The time he got a little over animated and spilt his goblet all over Albus at a Christmas party ) That happened here too
  • And he tastes of something as well…?
  • Tears. 
  • Ah no. Those are his.
  • Scorpius slips off his tie, replacing it with the one from the steps.

  • 2 hours later Albus has something thrust into his hand by Polly Chapman 
  • “Scorpius says you dropped this”
  • It’s a Gryffindor tie.
  • But not his tie 
  • An “S.H.M” is embroidered on the back of the tip.
  • Merlin! He’s charmed his own tie 
  • And Albus does the same.
  • He breathes in the smell of what he misses so dearly 
  • His nose isn’t as acute 
  • He can’t say what exactly Scorpius smells like 
  • But it’s distinct 
  • Comforting 
  • He smells like the shine of polished chrome 
  • And the texture of soft parchment 
  • The knot is still tied so he pulls the loop over his head, pulls it tight and smooths it down.

  • The boy’s exchange ties that day 
  • It is a symbol of loyalty
  • Of solidarity 
  • Of defiance 
  • Of love.
