Hour Glass for Breath Work

I often speak of my meditation-prayer, which is just to inhale thinking “Thank you” and exhale thinking “Bless you”. It is a simple thing, but how much energy you can pack into it and expand upon the practice is nearly infinite.

Since I love making spiritual tools, or pretty art pieces that have some function, I came up with the idea of a breath work “hour glass” — a rattle that you can use to help you breathe slowly and deeply for meditation. The motion of turning the rattle with each breath also helps if you need a little more stimulation during meditation and don’t like to keep completely still!

This my first prototype:

Thanks and Blessings

You will find peace and oneness with Great Spirit and the Everything when your gratitude for the blessings which you’ve received and your efforts to bless others become the same prayer, the same emotion, the same concept.

A Simple Prayer

May I awaken my soul to consciousness. May I increase, this day, my awareness of possibilities.

May I connect to my greater dreaming, my higher self.

May I become the consciousness of my full potential. May I become aware of all things within my life’s touch.

May I give thanks and blessings always, continuously.
