Did your day just get ransacked by stress? Here are two steps to to hep you Easily Relax in any situation by using Transition Tricks and Quick Body Talk.
The last 24 hours have reminded me that sometimes my scheduled zen meditation plan get’s chucked out the window when emergencies pop up. And today, that is exactly what happened to me when my freaky Mother Bear mode came out while helping my oldest daughter find holistic medical care hundreds of miles away from me. Eeeek!!! Once I knew my daughter was in good hands, I realized 3 hours had passed by and I needed to find a way to transition out of my Freaky Side and calm down.
Sometimes I need some help transitioning into a state where I can meditate. So, I went to my bag of transitions tricks.
I love living in California, and went to my backyard and hugged a tree, while I stood barefoot in the grass, and then I laid down on my yoga mat in the morning sun light, listened to the birds, felt the soft breeze on my face, and gave thanks to the Universe for providing all that I ever need. As I began doing these things, calm washed over me and stress receded. As I melted into a more peaceful state, I knew I was now ready to practice my meditation. Even though all of this was very brief, due to my schedule change, it was still very powerful and fully transformed me.
What about you? Do you have any transition tricks?
No, but you want them? Here is a starter list of things to try.
The objective is to experiment with a lot of things so you can find what instantly calms you.
Side Note: Do you need to worry about Sarah now that she is discussing tree hugging? What is all this tree hugging about? That’s weird.
Yes, it is weird, I wholeheartedly agree with you. But, it works. There is something innate about our connecting with nature. We are from nature, and are biologically connected to nature, so our vibrations align with nature and are instantly raised by being in nature. Haven’t you noticed how good you feel after a day at the beach, camping, time at the park, on a bike ride, hiking or walking the dog? It’s because you are outside, you are connecting with nature and raising your physical vibrations as a result.
Quick Body Talk
This is an uber important point here. Because your body self (ego) is helping you, she is giving you what you need through your emotions and uses physical symptoms to talk to you. By loving your self, and all it's feelings and symptoms, you will be able to release your feelings and symptoms and move onto the state you are desiring.
A Conversation with Your Body
You can do this in your head (no one will ever know) or speak it aloud.
It’s okay if you have to repeat this a few times, sometimes there are several layers of messages, and I find that 95% of the time this works for me. But this is not a replacement for medical help if you need it. So take care and do what you need to do.
Within minutes, the Transition Tricks will bring you back to a calmer reality, and you will find great relief when you use the How to Talk Yourself off the Ledge technique. You will find that you will learn to rapidly shift from total bonkers stressed out freaky side, to zen happy girl super fast, and that it can be easy and even fun, anywhere and at anytime. It's so magical.
Allow yourself the peace of mind and appreciation that you deserve. You are loved. You are cherished. You are admired by the Universe above. They are totally cool with you, as you are, so any work you do to move yourself into a relaxed and more peaceful state is like a cherry on the top of a sundae.
Release those worries, and allow the Universe to give you a big relaxed warm hug.
