Have you been holding your breath? Did you even notice?
Are you feeling a bit more tired?
Holding your breath often relates to survival mode or perceived danger. It also has an influence on setting goals and taking that very first step. OR when life gets a little bit too crazy and you don’t really know what is up or down.
And when you’re holding your breath, you will have a tendency to suppress thoughts and emotions that feel heavy and negative. But the thing is that in order to release the thoughts, feelings and even people that no longer are useful in your life or needed, holding your breath is spending the energy you don’t really have to give away.
Sometimes you don’t notice what you’re holding on to with dear life and so the energy becomes heavy. Connect with your senses by going outdoors for a walk, take a warm bath, listen to music or create art. It’s in that process thoughts and feelings can and will open themselves to you that are ready to be healed and let go off.
But perhaps before you begin or even during said activities, close your eyes for a moment and take three deep breath and fully be aware of the present. And then take three more breath acknowledging your inner chaos and the heaviness you’ve been feeling. Take three more breath and remember when everything as on harmony and as you exhale with each breath, release the energy that has found itself to you but is no longer serving you.
Sometimes the best thing one can do when trying to find balance again is to let go and get lost – not in the physical sense but in a “you’re so into your activity that you’ve lost space and time”.
Give yourself the opportunity to get lost so you can release the energy that’s causing you to hold your breath and then open yourself up to release it one exhale at a time!
