Self Healing - Part 1
Since I wrote the Stress Survival Kit, I've come to realise that, while it does teach you some really powerful energy balancing techniques, (ones that I use daily)...
...it really is the 10,000ft overview of the healing process.
So this post is to share with you one of the things I consider ESSENTIAL when it comes to true healing,
and I don't think I mentioned it in detail in the e-Book!
Lets start digging into the nitty-gritty stuff that really opens the flood gates to clearing and healing stress.
The non-negotiable aspect I'm talking about in this post is "Acceptance"!
What do I mean by that???
One of the major causes of stress is resistance to what is happening.
We don't like it, we don't agree with it, we want whatever it is, to stop - right now!
This resistance to, what's happening creates a block in your energy flow. You may have heard the saying:
"What you resist... persists!"
I call this resistance... Rejection of Perfection!
When you trust the universe to provide everything you need, and you believe that everything happens for a reason... then nothing that happens can be 'wrong' or 'bad'.
It's meant to be.
- It's happening to teach you something,
- to keep you where you are,
- to push you to where you need to be
Here's how I remind myself to accept what's happening right now and not block up my energy and create stress in my body...
Step 1 - Breathe fully. Ground yourself to the present moment using your breath. See the Stress Survival Kit for more information on this step.
Step 2 - Place your hand, gently on your forehead (Emotional Stress Release Technique as taught in my Free Stress Survival Kit e-Book)
Step 3 - Use your senses to describe what's happening (not your emotions).
This is the most crucial step. The one that helps bring you out of reaction mode and in to choice. The senses that I'm referring to are:
- Sight, Sound, Smell, Taste and Touch
Describe what you see and what you hear as if you are a lawyer showing "Exhibit A" to the jury in a court room. Simply state the facts - out loud or just in your mind - in a way that ALL witnesses could agree upon.
Step 4 - Choose my next move, action, words, behaviour... based on the facts.
I cannot deny the facts - I don't have to like them, or agree with them... ...but I cannot deny them.
When I work with the facts (and not how I feel about them), I can keep the energy flowing in my body and prevent stress from building up.
Try this technique the next time you "cry over spilled milk".
Remember, this situation is perfect! It's meant to be happening, don't resist it... Accept It!
Acceptance of what is, is the first step in the healing process. Everything happens for a reason (even when we cannot fathom what that reason might be).
The next step in the healing process is to get grounded and prepare to explore your inner self. You can read more about that here!
