Covid-19 swept through the Globe with no warning and at such a ferocious speed that the human race had no prior opportunity to prepare their mindset on how every person’s life was going to be affected. This pandemic has left so many lives in turmoil, whether due to illness, death, furloughed jobs, redundancy, business closures, unable to see loved ones; the list goes on.
Wednesday 4th November 2020 is National Stress Awareness Day so let us spare a kind thought for all those people who are dealing with stress related symptoms and send much needed love and healing to everyone affected.
I wanted to introduce a self-help technique that can easily be incorporated into your daily life and can help with the symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia. I use it myself and have also received excellent feedback from my clients, so why not try it out. You do need to persevere and complete this routine every day for at least 2 weeks or until you feel that it has made a difference. Following that you can use this technique as and when you feel that you need to be more connected and grounded to the earth.
Begin with concentrating on normal breathing, slow and even.
After a minute or so introduce a deep breath into the belly area, hold for the count of 3 and breathe out slowly (do this three times).
Visualise or feel roots growing from the bottoms of your feet and sinking deep into the ground, travelling further and further down into the depths of the earth's crust until the very core is in view, a round moving disc.
The roots wrap themselves around the centre of the earth and you can feel your feet being pulled tightly to the ground.
Visualise or feel the energy rushing back up from the centre of the earth, up through the roots and up through the bottoms of your feet to your knees, your belly, your abdomen and your heart, bringing a feeling of complete calm, relaxation and absolute balance and grounding.
I hope you find this self healing technique useful.
