I will share a most powerful process! I awoke this morning with a text of bad news. I knew it could be coming but I didn't know how to derail it. A flush of panic, fear, OMG, tears, fear, fear, fear overcame me. In that moment, I went to my heart. I directed my energy and thinking. Usually our mind takes over and creates stories in speed, quickly. We use our imagination in a negative way of how we have no power. Instead I went into my heart to feel the feelings from that center. This will slow down the mind and stop the negative imagination!
Fear, panic, anxiety, not knowing a solution is very real in this world. These are good responses to the initial information. We don't feel safe. Not getting lost in spiral down for hours or even weeks is what I am sharing a technique for. When these overwhelming feelings come in, I allow this wash of them. I go into my heart consciously. I allow the presence of these feelings. I feel them but from the place of my heart, not in my mind ramble. I breathe, I allow, I watch, I don't engage in them mentally, I just feel. Tears could come, usually I feel real heat with panic, I give myself the moment in a very patient way. Instead, I plant myself in the heart and experience. Very different reference point.
The heart holds the center of our highest love and highest self. When we use this to experience rather than thinking which will bring even more negative feelings as they intermingle into victimhood, we can stop the spiral. The heart center is the main powerhouse and it can manage feelings easier than the mind. The mind will take that charge and amp it up. The heart will feel and slow down the response. It will calm as you breath through, name the feelings, watch them, allow them, recognize them. A calm will come relatively quick. There is no dinosaur chasing me although for a moment it felt like it.
After I have settled, I will bring in an acceptance of this challenge. I accept this fear, panic, loss, scary feelings. They are there and I accept they are there. I feel them and accept they are real, clear, part of my response, a good indicator, something that just is. Acceptance. No tantrum, crying or fear will do anything for the challenge but amp up scary emotions. As this acceptance sinks in, calm is within me rising. I settle, I am ok in the moment, I am settling. You are bringing balance to your bodies. Aligning.
Then I go into compassion for myself. I open the channel of love. For me this often feels like I mother myself. It is usually my childlike part that is in fear and panic. I tell myself it will be ok. I open to flush myself with love. I feel true understanding for myself. Just as when someone tells you a hard situation, you feel for them. You want to love and help them. This is your higher frequency self. Your higher self, your divine part, whatever you want to call it. Through the heart your best being will show up to help you. I am settled. I am not in the mind of panic as I could be without this process.
After the calm, the compassion has filled you then you shift to your 2nd chakra, at the womb or below the belly button. This is called the Svadhisthana chakra of creativity, flow and joy. You settle into this spot in your body and feel the joy. It won't be like "Yippee" joy of emotion although it could. It will be more like a sweet smile that comes across your face or through your body in relax. Sit in that joy field. This is the creative place and feel good chakra. When you are in some sort of strife, to find your way through this process to your most creative, spiritual, compassionate self is powerful You are present in a higher frequency.
This is the high frequency of receiving. It is not yang of mind or pushing to a solution. It is a receptive settled place of receiving the blessings. Receiving is like a funnel. You change from left brain, linear system to the universal spiral system that receives and Lifts. It sends out with a different frequency. This is how embodiment supports you. Our wiring is changing and our experience is shifting.
In this high frequency of joy, a grounded, visceral joy, you can calmly find solutions. Perhaps you don't know in that moment so you let it go and do something that rides in this joy energy. I don't have an answer or solution just yet but in my highest settled space I move forward. I made coffee in calm, put myself on a prayer list and am going about the day in a more settled, calm, hopeful, joyful manner. I remember this plane is of adventure. It has uncertainty. I call in remembering that I have made it through all things. I get to that highest, creative self knowing the solution will come as I settle into my most creative place. Often not through pondering or action in that direction.
The ways will come in from the calming and love. It is a centered, conscious way to manage fear and challenge. If I were in my mind right now, imagining all the terrible things I will experience, getting lost in the deep emotional vibe of panic, fear, no solutions, doom, it could go on for days. I shifted that energy from panic information to something I can manage and work with. I am alert. I am calm, I am hopeful. I know I figure things out always. I am open now. Open to support, ideas, messages, opportunities, solutions.
I often go into "Wouldn't it be nice if....?" I am out of the victim mode of I don't know what to do and I am screwed to the open energy that brings in solutions and support. This joy center is the magic. This basic feeling coming from the heart and core of you can then bring the mind in balance. All pieces aligned. Clear, open, available and ready to move forward in calm anticipation.
I didn't bipass my feelings or invalidate them. I manage them. This is the power of the emotional nature, energy moving. You can control the mind, the emotions and the bodies. Yes I still have a challenge. Now I have an adventurous energy about it rather than doom. I am moving forward rather than dropped out. I am doing something positive and it isn't really related to the problem but I am moving and have hopeful energy. That is the key. The perspective is shifted, Now I do whatever comes in and know it will be solved from my deepest self, my creative self, my divine self. I accept and use all my parts together.
Aligned in body, mind and heart are the embodiment we are awakening too. It is how you slow down the mercurial mind, get into the heart and ultimately the core center and ride through this adventure plane of earth. Astute, alert, anticipating and flowing forward. Light to me, you and our world. Things work out.
