In Chapter Four of Underneath Your Personality Roxanne explains the relationship between our innate centers (the grounded body, open heart, and quiet mind) and presence.
“Our heightened awareness of these innate centers provides a surprising pathway to go below the ‘interference stories’ that we tell ourselves about who we are and why things are the way they are. Learning to experience the movement of our breath and the sensations in our bodies brings us into the present moment. When we learn to ‘be with’ what is in our hearts, we not only recognize which feelings are coming up, but also connect with our sense of compassion and kindness for ourselves and others. We begin to notice the space between thoughts and come into contact with greater clarity that is possible in our head center.”
The practice below is a starting point to bring heightened awareness to these conscious centers of intelligence.
Focus attention on the breath and how it moves in and out of your body.
Notice the spacious quality within your body, heart, and that of the clear head center.
Rest in the spaciousness, allowing sensations, feelings and thoughts to flow through.
