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
Haven’t we all experienced it? Some of us daily, hourly, minute by minute, some of us less so, but still they sometimes reoccur – the voices criticising, the judgement, the loss of self esteem – the voices affirming negative statements in our heads and we believe them, until we become aware of them and realise these are just thoughts that can be changed to allow us to move forwards and feel positive.
Using Visualisation can be a great way to change these thoughts from negative to positive:
Find a relaxed, calm place to sit or lie and listen to relaxation music if you like.
Close your eyes, take some relaxing breaths and continue until your body feels heavy and deeply relaxed.
Tune into your negative thoughts and be present with them for a moment.
Where in your body do you feel them and how do they make you feel?
On your outbreath, imagine you are shouting the negative words from where they originate and they flow out from your mouth.
You see the words landing on a large artists pad. Continue with as many as you need.
Now take a paint brush and using any colours you like and with a watery brush, paint over the words and they all run and become one messy page.
Toss that page into the bin, and on a fresh sheet, using appropriate colours, write all the positive feeling you want to experience.
Then as you breath in, take each positive emotion or statement one-by-one into your body and mind, and breathe it through every cell to the essence of your being. Really experience the feeling of that positive emotion.
Use statements to reinforce each emotion eg; I am happiness, I am forgiveness, I am acceptance, I am confident, I am calm, I am coping etc.
When complete take a nice big deep breath and feel attuned to those positive feelings.
Return to your day feeling uplifted, positive and happier.
