Take FIVE and feel ALIVE!

Feeling vitality and awesome joy is truly our natural state of being. That may sound pollyannish to you but that is your perception.

Everything we think becomes our reality. We always have the choice. Where we place our attention is what becomes our manifestation.

Our past conditioning may have taught us that life is just "unfair". That life just is hard and that is just the "way it is". That people can't be trusted, that people are out to get us, that people are not inherently good and on and on an on go the litany of negative beliefs.

Which beliefs are you holding on to?

When you don't feel at ease in life, you create dis-ease in your whole being.

Which translates to depression or body pain, or fatigue, or disappointment and the worst one- VICTIMIZATION.

What thoughts do you engage with? Which thoughts are you giving your most vital energy to?

The answers to those questions will reveal exactly how you are experiencing your life, and more precisely the QUALITY of life you are living.

Take 5 to feel ALIVE!

Here is a practice I teach my clients for raising their energy and changing their dis-ease.

Take 5 minutes and do the following:

1) Stop- physically and mentally sit yourself down and pause for 5 minutes. You can do this. Don't make excuses you don't have the time. If you have the time to surf on facebook, than you have 5 minutes to HELP YOURSELF.

2) Now listen to your breath, and then go further. FEEL your breath. Close your eyes, and just feel the movement of your inhalations and exhalations. The breath is your direct link to the LIFE FORCE. You die if you don't get air. Breath and feel the cycle over and over and over again.

3) Be present for whatever is. So when those thoughts come to surface in your mind, gently say thank you and guide your point of focus back to your breath. Inhale and exhale. Inhale and exhale. You may even see those words as you do this. The point is not to block, or resist or push away anything. You simply OBSERVE and be there for YOURSELF without reacting with judgement or any kind of reaction to your thoughts. This is the practice of compassion :)

Take 5 and then feel how alive you truly are after this process. By just taking a moment to pause, feel and breathe. you engage the nervous system in a way that allows it to come out of survival mode, to growth or productive mode.

You allow yourself the opportunity to release the illusion of fear or threat and create an environment for every one of your cells to thrive.

Take 5 and tell me how you thrive!

I appreciate and love all your feedback and compliments. I am blessed.
