‘The greatest satisfaction in Life is from Giving’ Richard Branson – Choicepoint Movie
The biggest gift you can give yourself, is to give to others without wanting anything in return. To give them your time, your compassion, love and laughter.
If you are feeling depressed, if your own emotions are overwhelming, if you aren’t feeling fulfilled or satisfied with your life, think about getting involved in work helping others whether paid or unpaid, or helping out a neighbour, joining a community group or facing a challenge for a charity – we all have it within us to spread sunshine to other people and you’ll be amazed at how it enables you to experience your own personanl growth and healing.
You can try this visualisation:
Find a calm, quiet place to sit, listening to some relaxing music.
Take some calming breaths, following your breath in and out of your body, bringing your attention back to your breath whenever your mind wanders.
Allow the music and your breath to relax your body, letting go of any stress or tension.
Take your attention to your heart and now imagine waking up to a bright sunny day, seeing a field of spring grass filled with yellow buttercups and the blue blue sky. Feel that uplift and sunshine in your heart.
The energy of the sun is pure gold and is filling your heart with compassion and wellbeing. Imagine your heart smiling
With every breath, the feeling spreads from your heart into the whole of your chest, up and down your body reaching your fingers and toes, up into your head, so your body is alive with this energy.
Now that energy grows and the golden sunshine smile spreads out of every part of you into the surrounding area, spreading further to encompass all you come in contact with.
Feel a big smile light up your face right now and take a nice deep breath.
From now on you can give and recieve love and compassion more easily.
Stay with that feeling as long as is appropriate, coming back to the room and opening your eyes when you are ready.
And remember, just smiling spreads some sunshine!
Enjoy. Until next time!
Lots of Love
