Tips to Transform: Being Overwhelmed

 

Does this ^^ accurately represent the way you’re feeling? Ready to throw up the white flag? I know for the past couple days I have been swamped with deadlines, places to be, and things to do. Honestly it has been overwhelming, so I’ve put together a list of things that can help if you’re in the same place.

1. Most importantly, breathe.
By watching our breath, we can accomplish an abundance of greatness all at once.

a. Through the observation of our breath, we bring ourselves back into the present moment; we can be aware of what is. Often times we begin to feel overwhelmed in the first place because we make the situation out to be worse than it actually is. As we return to our breath, we can more accurately evaluate and adapt to the current moment we are in. We can also decipher between which “stories” looping in our head are actually benefiting us.

b. We are feeding our bodies with energy. When we are feeling weak, the best thing we can do for ourselves is notice the natural beauty of the breath. It is always there, thank you. As we follow this exercise we can diverge our attention from what “needs to get done”, and place it into space of connection. Notice the infinite cycle of the breath. Where does the breath start? Where does it end? Can you find the space in between? Notice how somewhere, as you breathe in oxygen, a plant thanks you for the carbon dioxide.

c. Goodness, by taking notice to our breath we are slowing down our heart rate, massaging our organs, releasing muscle tension, as well as bettering our posture… and the list continues, but I think you’re on board.

Try it: in through your nose, and out through your mouth x5= instantly better mood.

 

2. Ask, “what makes me happy?”
Some examples of what makes me happy are listening to music, going on walks (with my shoes off), drawing, cooking, dancing, learning, sharing a great hug, or doing something totally outside of my comfort zone. Go ahead, ask yourself…
Once you’ve chosen, all you need is to make yourself happy! You deserve it. Remember that we are here to enjoy ourselves, so be kind and give yourself a break if you need one.
Notice what makes you happy. Make a list. I have a friend that actually takes a picture every day of something that makes her happy.

(note): Here it is suggested to participate only in what will wholly benefit us. There are things that “make us happy” such as drugs and alcohol which may actually lead us down an unintended path.

3. Let time get away from you.

Take the time, to not keep track of it. Birds fly, bees buzz, and cats lounge just fine without a watch.
Plug in some head phones, close your eyes, and give yourself permission to truly listen.

 

4. Stretch

Get down on the floor, and get to bendin’! Not only does this relieve muscle tension and provide our muscles/body with additional oxygen, but it is also allows us to release the toxins we pick up through panic, anxiety, and tension.

Here is a free mindful Yin Yoga class: http://www.doyogawithme.com/content/mindful-yin-yoga

Even if you do the first 15 minutes you will fill loads better.

5. Tell someone/something that you love… that you love them. <3

This could be yourself, the Earth, a K9 friend, a lovely flower close by, or a stranger. Let your heart speak! Give it a voice.

Hopefully this list of techniques can help us when we feel the walls are closing in. We have the ability to consciously shape and transform our realities, isn’t it beautiful?

With so much love,

Morgan

    I am 59 years young and getting younger every day
    I’ve studied Health Nutrition preventive medicine and alternative medicine for 30 years
    approximately 1 year ago I got into doing sun gazing a very powerful tool for spiritual growth
    in which I stare into the Sun for 44 minutes every morning that is with my eyes open very powerful tool for prayer, meditation and positive affirmations., now you can only do this during the safe hours that’s an hour after sunrise in an hour before sunset with UV rays are zero.
    I also started using the amazing Egyptian healing rods while sungazing very powerful tool, this amplifies the effect of sun gazing and helps you to walk into your future.
    October 8th 2016 I took a 4 day workshop course from Drunvalo Melchizedek on the school of remembering I highly recommend,
    Tthis course on the illuminated heart will change your life forever.
    so I have put together a webpage on spiritual growth and which I post flyers on mailboxes all over the Atlanta area.
    I even have a web page on spirit science

    The Health Benefits of Sungazing
    The Sun is the force of life & staring at it can infuse
    the the body with large amounts of energy. Boost
    production of melatonin & serotonin ( feel good )
    Increased Health, Longevity & Spiritual Well-Being
    Increased the acual size of the pineal gland
    Increased Self-confidence and energy levels
    Promotes weight loss, Better eyesight & more

    You guys always email me these blogs in the most divinely timed moments. I felt overwhelmed today and recently went to the largest Buddhist Temple in the Northern Hemisphere and just happened to attend a free dinner and meditation class. And it was with someone backpacking across California I only met once before years ago in Pennsylvania. Funny how life works out. Anyway thank you for just being love and light. It’s extremely refreshing in THE most phenomenal way. Keeps the souls fed and the egos starved. NAMASTÉ
