Healing in part of our life or body takes updating ourselves on multiple levels, not just the mind or habits but truly increasing our awareness. It requires being open to new possibilities and information and updating old beliefs and habits that no longer serve you. That new piece of information to make an activity or project easier is a sudden insight received.
The feeling that it is possible to heal or overcome a challenge is one of the strongest motivators to help you step into that place of well being and enjoy being well. How to lower stress at these times is very important, tips.
Creating new awareness is a process that you can engage at anytime. As we desire a more fulfilling life and relationships we are moved to expand our knowledge, skills understanding and observe the habits that keep us stuck.
Action or no action – we believe is based upon choice when, in fact, there are more steps that take place in that split second. It was our belief, skills, and habits to meet the change that was engaged. Here we just thought we were or were not going to take action.
Below is an exercise that I used with my husband this morning… he asked I want know more about reducing tension.
We did this morning and afterward he said ‘I do not want to open my eyes I felt relaxed in my neck, and my shoulders feel lighter and I like being in that place…I enjoy feeling well.'” Hours later he said I feel I have a greater awareness about my tension, his words, “I like this feeling.”
Awareness experiment: I want to feel more relaxed
Sitting at your desk or in a chair
Put left hand in the center of your chest
Right hand on top of left
Think a healing or comforting thought
Breathe it in
Exhale sending the healing thought to whatever place or condition you want to address.
Do this for a few minutes
Take valuable information you learned during this time.
Take notice: where did your relax?
What words or feelings did you experience?
This enhanced awareness can help you in your daily life.
Use it often.
Creating a greater awareness opens doors that were not available to you before. The latest research on how the mind works indicates that positive outlook, words and actions come from a different place in the brain granting access to a place where opportunities exist. The mind mapping research shows that different parts of the brain turn on during those moments when we learn or challenge ourselves, while turning off other parts of the brain connected to limiting old habits.
The opposite is true: when we feel trapped or challenged beyond our skill level, we freeze. Old habits say we cannot do that, then we replay all the times that we did not succeed in trying something new. That part of the reptilian brain — flight or fight — is activated and turns off the possibilities.
Turn on the well being and experience great awareness and take new steps. Even small steps keep you moving forward.
