Today’s Miracle Moment Is About Remembering Who You Are…
A number of years ago when I (Marci) was writing Happy For No Reason, I read the story about a tribe in Africa in which every tribe member has a signature song. When a baby is in the womb, the family feels into that baby’s soul and comes up with a “signature song” for the baby. The child is sung their song during the pregnancy, when they are born, and many times throughout their childhood. The entire tribe knows each person’s song and they sing the songs to each other.
When a member of their tribe commits a crime, rather than punishing them, the entire tribe gathers and circles around that person. Then they sing the offender “their song” to remind them of who they are.
Then each person in the circle shares their appreciation of that person to further help them remember who they are.
Isn’t that amazing!
The whole tribe stays strong when everyone loves and uplifts each other rather than judges each other.
How different from how our modern culture operates! But, we can adopt this perspective for ourselves and our own family and friends – to remind ourselves and each other who we really are.
We can breathe our own breath in such a way that it feels as familiar as our own song being sung to us.
If you take slow, deep belly breaths regularly throughout the day, you continually soothe yourself and connect with your true Self. This is a reminder of your vibrational signature that feels like home, and you can create this for yourself at any moment.
Here’s what to do:
Every time you take a deep belly breath, relax your shoulders, rest the activity in your mind, and drop into the deep core central channel of your being. Your subconscious is going to respond with, “Oh, there I am. I don’t have to work so hard to figure out who I am. I don’t have to prove it. I don’t have to be afraid. I remember who I am.”
When you give that signal to the subconscious, you connect to the feeling of belonging—as though you are part of a tribe that is not going to let you flail about, but will hold you high and remind you of who you are.
The truth is that we are each magnificent beings. There is not anything wrong with any of us, and all we have to do is remember who we truly are.
Over these next weeks, we invite you to practice checking in and remembering who you are…the truth of your essence. And, don’t just rely on your mind alone—let your body and your breath help facilitate the process.
When your mind, body, and breath are all working together, you don’t feel alone!
