Power Quotes From The
Activating A Higher State Of Consciousness Through Breath &
"Focus first on your breath and then second mindful movement
which, in other words, is a story behind the movement. When you can
tune your brain into the patterns of movement and the emotions and
thoughts that come up with each move, you become very, very
powerful in activating what I like to call, 'body-centered
psychotherapy' and no one knows you better than you." - Ed
Fear & Resistance: Powerful Opportunities For Growth
“Fear and resistance are powerful opportunities for growth if
you consciously choose to stay with these emotions longer allowing
them time to deliver their message, to acknowledge what part of
yourself is in conflict with your choices.” - Ed
Gotta Feel It To Heal It
"When you start to control your breath, you're giving the mind
and body the opportunity to embody your thinking. You're allowing
the body and the wisdom of the body, whether it be the upper
abdomen or the neurons in the heart, the opportunity to interact
with the film that you're watching in your mind. So, when you have
the ability to pause with your breath and feel your intention,
you're taking your intelligence to a whole other level that's well
above the normal dialogue of folks who are disconnected from their
breath." - Ed Harrold
