The Quest for Understanding
Free your mind

Reprogramming The Mind Towards Pause-itivity

The mission of Pause, Breathe, Proceed is to help us understand how the mind works, where our thoughts come from, why we react, how our reactions affect ourselves and everyone around us, and how to respond in kindness.   The power resides in the Pause and the Breath.  The Pause is a powerful tool that stops the subconscious reactive train we are on.  The Breath calms our body so we can proceed in kindness.

Ultimately it’s about reprogramming your true essence, the core of your being, to be kind and write the story of your life the way you want it to read.  We created reminders; bracelets, stickers, etc to help you Pause.  We can also customize products for your company.  Without the reminder to Pause, we trudge down the same path every day. Our presentations seal in the power behind this three step process.  Contact us today!

3 Steps to Freedom


Before you react PAUSE

What you are about to do?

Be aware of your feelings, thoughts, and actions


Take a deep belly breath, calm your mind/body

Why are you about to react?

Be curious, find understanding and compassion


Your reactions affect yourself and those around you

How will you chose to proceed?

We encourage forgiveness, kindness, and love

Pause – Breathe – Proceed?


Constant stress overtaxes all of your systems

Pause and Breathe to calm your body and mind

Stress left unchecked can increase the risk of:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Digestive Problems

  • Headaches

  • Heart Disease

  • Sleep Problems

  • Weight Gain

  • Impaired Memory & Concentration



Words can tear someone down or build someone up

When you react negatively you send negative energy to everyone around you

Pause, Breathe and be kind



The brain is programmed to respond in the way it always has

Neuroplasticity is the brains ability to reprogram neural connections

We can reprogram our brain to respond in compassion, forgiveness, and kindness



We have become a society of “me”.  What’s best for me?

A Pause and Breath can access your heart

See the other person as a human being with their own challenges


Pause and Listen

Human Communication is Not a Priority
We Don’t Pause For Others

Today’s life is lived on a hamster wheel.  We get caught in the same old habits, social loops and self centered thinking.  We aren’t programmed to pause, to see, to listen to the humans around us.  This leaves people feeling unimportant, unvalued, and unheard.  Everyone has a story they want to tell but not many people are truly listening.

Here’s just a few ways we do not listen:


Too Busy

We appear to be listening but we are planning what we have to do, we miss their story.


We Already Know

We magically know what someone is going to say so we interrupt their story.


We Aren’t Interested

We appear to be listening but our eyes glaze over and we fade, we miss their story.


We Are the Experts

We ”know” the truth from parents, social media, the news, etc. so we interrupt their story.


Technology Distractions

We are so focused on our cell phone that we miss their story.


It’s All About “Me”

Instead of listening to understand others, we interrupt to tell our story.


Deep Seated Issues

The topic brings up some emotions buried deep so we interrupt their story.


We Have A Question

Instead of waiting for the whole story we interrupt to ask a question.

I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction.
The world will have a generation of idiots.

~Albert Einstein

How Do You React to Yourself?

“We must love our neighbor as ourselves”

You are our own worst enemies. You tell yourself you’re too fat, too ugly, not fast enough, and the list goes on. When you critique yourself, you are quick to critique others.  Create positive neural connections about yourself in your mind, I AM perfect, I AM smart, I AM loved, etc.

Creating a habit of kindness towards yourself will create a habit of kindness towards others.


The Kids!  Create Habits!

“If we could teach every three year old child how to meditate, we would have a peaceful world someday”  -Deepak Chopra

Pause, Breathe, and Proceed can give children the tools to grow up aware, kind and compassionate.  They can program their mind now instead of reprogramming later in life.  Let them create habits of thinking, questioning, listening, compassion and kindness.


It’s time for a change

People are searching for ways to connect.

We can’t connect if we don’t slow down, pause, and be present.

Stress, anxiety, depression, and loneliness are at an all time high.

It’s time to understand emotional intelligence.

It’s time to Pause, Breathe, and Proceed.

Own your life by understanding your mind
