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.  At the core of our being is our soul.  When we clear the clutter of old beliefs we can connect with the beliefs that resonate with us in the here and now.  We can live the life we are meant to live and that life is full of love and kindness.

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

A cleansing breath can shift your perspective

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?

Physical Effects of Stress

The body’s stress-response system is self-limiting but it can go haywire.  When stressors are always present our fight-flight-freeze response stays turned on. Everyday life is overtaxing our systems.  It’s time to Pause.

Long-term activation of the stress-response system — thus the overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones — can disrupt almost all our body’s processes. This puts us at increased risk of numerous health problems, including:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Digestive Problems

  • Headaches

  • Heart Disease

  • Sleep Problems

  • Weight Gain

  • Impaired Memory & Concentration


Emotional Effects of Negativity

Words can tear someone down or build someone up.

When you react negatively it may feel good.  You may be able to justify your reactions to your friends and garner their support but the truth resides within. It will slowly eat its way to the surface.

You will feel bad.

When you react negatively you send negative energy to everyone around and you absorb the negative energy. This energy, if not eliminated from your body, can fester and cause physical, mental, or emotional issues in your body.


Mental – The Brain’s Capacity to Rewire

Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to reprogram neural connections.  Our neurons are wired according to our past actions, feelings, and thoughts.  This allows our brain to fire quickly when that situation arises again.

Being aware of our reaction and understanding the source allows us to change our neural connection. We can reprogram our brain to respond in compassion, forgiveness, and kindness.


Social Benefits of the Pause

We have become a society of “me”.  What’s best for me? We have built up so many walls around us that we don’t even realize the connections we have lost.  

Pause to consider a situation.  Look at everyone involved.  That pause can access your heart and you can see the other person as a human being with their own challenges. 

As you practice Pause, Breathe, and Proceed you will slowly break down walls and feel the energetic connection that we all share.


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 and find peace, joy, and love.

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

As we create neural patterns of kindness, we can create change in and around us.

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

It’s time to Pause, Breathe, and Proceed with a heart of love.

Own your life by understanding your mind
