Need an energetic boost? I created a 5 minute Heart Chakra Meditation for one of my clients and she has loved it so much that she started sharing it with her friends. So I thought I would share it with you too.
There is still so much uncertainty in the world and I have found that the best way forward comes from an energy of love.
Have you been feeling stressed, anxious, or worried lately because of all of the news around the Coronavirus? I have been and want to share what has helped me.
Earlier this week, I started on a downward spiral after reading about how we should stock up on life-saving medication like insulin for my 12-year-old son who has Type 1 Diabetes.
I was feeling overwhelmed and out of control. After reading tons of articles, I checked in and noticed that my heart was racing and I felt scared.
I know you might have had a similar experience.
I paused and reminded myself that while I might not have to tools to stop the spread of this virus, I do have the tools to help me cope with the anxiety I am experiencing because of it.
I want to share with you what has worked for me this week and encourage you to try at least one if not all of them!
Tips for Coping with Anxiety, Stress, and Fear:
Essential Oils: Put a Put some drops of your favorite relaxing oil like lavender on a washcloth and then place that over your face and breathe deeply. Be careful that the oil doesn’t bother your eyes. You might like to add it to just the bottom of the cloth. I did this for the first time this week and can’t believe I haven’t done it sooner. It helped calm me so much!
Breathing Exercises: You might like to do “Box Breath” with the cloth over your face. This is when you inhale for a count of 4, hold for a count of 4, exhale for a count of 4, and hold for a count of 4. You can imagine that each 4 count is the side of a box. Do 10 rounds or set a timer for 1 to 5 minutes. I have a bunch of breathing exercises on my blog and in my book that will help too.
Guided Relaxation: This is a new video on my blog and I did this guided relaxation the other night when I was feeling particularly anxious and it shifted everything. I guide you through relaxing each part of your body. This has a profound effect on your body, mind, and nervous system. You might also like to have the essential oil washcloth over your face when doing this.
Change your thoughts: The other night I realized that I was feeling scared and not prepared. After doing the guided relaxation, I shifted my thoughts and said, “I stay positive and draw in everything I need.” I even made it my phone screensaver. Feel free to use it or create your own! Just click on the image above to download.
Declutter or Clean: When things are going on in the world that are out of your control, it can calm your anxieties to focus on something you can control like clutter or messes in your home. It is nice to create these moments of peace.
Send love out into the world: This guided meditation is perfect for when you feel like the world needs a bit more love and you wish you could help more.
This guided relaxation is perfect after a long day or whenever you are feeling stressed. I gently guide you to relax each part of your body. This has a profound calming effect on your body, mind, and nervous system.
I have been doing this type of relaxation for over 20 years and it works every time. I hope you enjoy it!
If you are ready to embark on a new chapter or are feeling held back by a person or a younger version of yourself (mistakes made or bad choices you associate with your younger self), then this guided meditation will help you release the past and one forward.
Before you start, think about the direction you want to move forward in or the new path you want to embark on. Then pause and think of stories from your life that you feel might be holding you back.
As the meditation begins, I guide you to choose a person or situation to release.
You will then be guided to forgive this person for not being the person you wanted them to be. Again, this might be a different person or a younger version of yourself.
This is a powerful thing to do. It can help with a particularly hard person or situation to forgive.
It helps you realize that we all have our own intentions and expectations at different times in our lives.
You will then be guided to release the situation connecting you to this person or your younger self.
This is incredibly healing.
After this, it might be nice to journal your feelings, or how you want to move forward now that you are free of this person or the past.
You also might like to stomp your feet to continue this sense of release.
Remember to do this, again and again, any time you need to forgive or move forward so you can become a better version of your self and create a life you love.
I originally did this in my Facebook group and everyone had an amazing experience.
Enjoy. Forgive. Release. Move Forward!
For some of you, this might be exhausting and draining. If that is the case, make sure you rest and drink lots of water after doing this visualization.
