The Two Pauses 

There are two pauses to be mindful of… the pause at the end of the inbreath and the pause at the end of the outbreath.

After we breathe in and gather there comes the upbeat, the pause… This is the raising of the conductor’s baton just before he beats the first beat. It is the “and” of the dance teacher letting the class know they need to be poised and ready. Then with the outbreath, the downbeat, the “1”, come the expansion of energy, of action, of engagement, of letting go…

At the end of the exhalation there is a beautiful pause. The pause in which to let go of the thoughts. The pause into the big blue sky. This is the stillness that gives us time. It is the stillness where we let go and survey the landscape. Then we breathe in and we gather up again, we pause and let go again into the stillness. And so it is.

This tapping script is for the pause that we need when we feel overwhelmed – it is the pause which comes when we stop trying to hold onto the inbreath, and allow the outbreath…

Tapping for the pause

Even though things seem to be going quickly, I love and accept myself. Even though life is accelerating, and I have so much to do, and I feel rushed (overwhelmed/anxious), I love and accept myself Even though I have a lot to do and I want to do it, I also want to slow down, and I deeply and completely love and accept myself

This busyness
This list of things to do
These things that I really want to do
These new ideas
This Spring awakening
I am so excited
So much to achieve
So much to grow into
It feels a bit too much

I’m telling myself I need to drive on
I hear the voice saying work hard
Don’t waste your time
You have so much to do…
Feeling excited
Feeling rushed
Feeling excited
Feeling like I want to do it right now
This excitement
Maybe it’s OK to slow down
Maybe I don’t have to do it right now
Maybe I can rest in the pause
Perhaps it’s OK to rest in the pause
Like the end of the outbreath
The inbreath always follows
I allow myself to rest in the pause
Resting in the pause
Taking time

I have all the time in the world
I can do what
I need to do
There is time
The inbreath will always follow
Enjoying the rest
Enjoying the presence
Enjoying the grounding
This moment
This pause

Then put one hand on your heart and one on your belly and breathe into them. Feel the connection. You are perfect just the way you are.
