Surface and breathe. Inhale deeply. With this breath you draw into you the force which sustains you. Yes, of course it is oxygen which does sustain the body, but it is that which you call the Life Force which does sustain the spirit. The spirit does survive whether or not the physical body breathes, but you can enliven mind, body, and spirit by visualizing the Life Force which animates you flowing freely throughout you with each breath.

Do not drown in your sorrows. Inhale deeply. Suck in the Life Force with the intent of bringing unto your Self full vitality and health, both mental and physical. With your mind, send this vital force flowing to wherever there are blockages. Hold the intention of opening these dams and thus returning to balance and harmony.

Surface, breathe, and heal yourself.
