It’s amazing how changing the way we think about something can have such powerful and transformative effects on our body and mind. Take this morning for example. I was feeling physically tired, mentally dull, and emotionally drained. But I was able to change all of that in just a few minutes.

All I did was stop, close my eyes and bring my awareness to the world around me. Then, paying attention to the morning breeze, I imagined the air I was breathing to be filled with microscopic bubbles of bright, light. Every breath I took, I imagined filling my body with those tiny bubbles.

When I opened my eyes, a few moments later, it was as if I had entered an entirely new reality. Even though the weather was dull and overcast, everything around me seemed brighter. There was even a subtle luminescence emanating from the dark clouds above me. My body felt energised, my mind clear, and my emotions uplifted. I felt as if the universe had given me a big, loving embrace.

This is the power of belief, a power every warrior should harness and learn to use on his/her inner path.
