- Get In touch with your inner self
Master this simple meditation technique. You can do this while travelling on a bus, train or flight, or even at work. And you only need 15 minutes.
– Sit in a comfortable chair or crossed legged on the floor on a cushion.
– Take a few deep breaths. Focus on the breath going in and out. Every out breath is releasing negativity and every inward breath is attract love and gratitude.
– Imagine that your whole body, every pore and cell is breathing. (This helps draw cosmic energy.)
- Embrace the power of music
Sound vibrations stir our inner being. Play spiritual music, hymns and chants as and when you can. Listen to such music while working out or jogging; your mind wouldn’t wander then. As I have Directed a Tina Turner Musical 3 times I have done extensive research on her musical catalogue. Her recent work is in the category World Music. Her 2 albums ‘Children Beyond’ & ‘Love Within’ are beautiful. She mixes Christian prayer with Buddhist chanting and includes sounds from all around the globe. I specifically love ‘A spiritual message from Tina’ you can find this on YouTube.
- Be Around Nature
Invest in making your living zone a green area by planting trees. Try and indulge in nature walks once in a while. Also, try and walk barefoot every day for 15 minutes at your nearest park or beach. It’s a simple way to connect with nature. The earth element has the capacity to take away negativity.
- Have Vibrant Colours Around
Colour therapy is getting popular by the day. Colours emit vibrations that affect our psyche. Eg: Yellow gives confidence, Red signifies security, Orange signifies emotional balance and blue improves communication and intuition. Explore its benefits in daily life. Change your drapes, bed sheets, pillow covers etc with primary colours or any colour that makes you happy. Light coloured candles. Wear more vibrant hues. Choose outfits depending on the way you want to project yourself. I am a huge fan of my mood ball lamp, I often set it to an indigo colour it helps to promote stillness & relaxation.
- Embrace The Love of a Child
Children have a natural energy that is so vibrant that it is a blessing for most adults to experience it. Speak or share experiences daily with a child in your family or a close friends child and you will be well on your way to seeing life in a very different way.
- Indulge in some laughter therapy
No need to join a comedy club, just try and have a good laugh at least 10 minutes a day. It opens up blocked energy patterns, releases feel-good hormones and is even good for certain aches and pains. Watch your favourite DVDs or comedy shows and laugh out loud.
- Energise your house
Light a candle every morning and evening. Fire has capacity to burn negative energies. Fill your house with fragrance and aromas that relax the mind. Also have open windows; the flow of air takes away negative energy. Look into burning aromatherapy oils, my favourites are ylang ylang, geranium, lavender, & jasmine.
- Inner child therapy
Each person has an inner child within him/her. Do things you used to as a child — be it cycling, clay modelling, doodling, drawing with colour pencils/crayons or even jumping into a puddle. They help you get rid of inhibitions and help you explore new areas of life.
- Press the right points
Based on acupressure, stimulating pressure points reduces stress. During stress, immediately press points around your eyes, your ear lobes and the point between your nose and lips. These points have a direct connection to nerve endings that control feelings of unease. Also keep pressing your palms to get immediate relief. Book in for a reflexology session, the pressure points on the feet correspond with major organs and various parts of the body.
- Healthy Lifestyle
The point about good sleep, healthy diet and exercise cannot be emphasised enough. If you can’t stick to a routine, at least adopt a few good practices. Like having a ‘fruit day’ occasionally to cleanse the body. Drink enough water to flush out toxins, at least 1 litre per day, if you don’t like the taste of water add a dash of fruit squash with no added sugar. Another tip is to count your steps while walking, it improves concentration. Finally, have gratitude; Gratitude fills us with positive energy.
- Clear Clutter
Clear your home, workstation and even your car. Most importantly, clear your mind. Clutter creates blocks in the flow of energy within you. When these blocks remain for long, it spreads all over your body and mind leaving you in a forever irritable and snappy mood.
Practice Love and gratitude for everything you have, try not to focus on the things you do not have as you will end up with more of what you do not have. The law of attraction is a powerful thing, test it out for yourself! Rhonda Byrnes ‘The Secret’ is a great read; download the ‘Daily Teachings’ app on your phone for some daily motivation and reminders. Her later book ‘The Power’ is also a great read or if you don’t have time to read download the audio book version on app such as ‘Audible’
Love, light & laughter always…
