Many of us go through life feeling frustrated and unhappy due to feeling a ‘lack’ of something. We often see the problem being down to needing more of something from someone, or a solution from outside of ourselves, whether it is more love, more appreciation, more success, more fulfilment, more motivation, more confidence, more trust.
What are you NOT experiencing in your world that you want to experience?
What are you NOT getting from the people around, your job, your life, that you feel you deserve?
What would make you feel happier and more content and at peace?
The wonderful thing is that we can CREATE these feelings for ourselves, we are incredible creative beings and are capable of giving ourselves everything that we need to be happy and content.
Find a quiet place to sit or lie down listening to relaxing music.
Take some nice deep breaths and feel your body relax and let go of any tension.
Spend a few moments thinking about what you feel you are missing from your life right now.
Once you have decided what it is (best to stick with one at a time), just be aware of it and acknowledge it.
Take your awareness to your breath and follow the rise and fall of your abdomen as you breathe in and out.
For the next 4 breaths, when you breath out, squeeze as much air out of your lungs, using your rib muscles to assist with this. Notice the breath in becomes much longer as you draw more air into your lungs.
Return to normal breathing and get a sense of a tingling vibration throughout all your cells.
Your cells are now creating, bring the awareness of the positive feeling you want to experience into all your cells, saying the word over to yourself.
As you repeat it, see this feeling growing and multiplying, growing and multiplying within all your cells, filling your body entirely.
You are now brimming with this feeling, it is overflowing out of your body and completely surrounding you like a bubble.
Have the intention to stay tuned to these feelings from now on and say it as an affirmation to yourself: ‘I am filled with …….
When you are ready, come back to the room, open your eyes and notice how much better you feel.
It is beneficial and reinforcing to repeat this for 21 days. You can add other positive feelings you wish to bring into your experience using the same exercise.
Good luck and enjoy!
Until next time
lots of love
‘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.
