“Be your own medicine, one pause, one breath and one healing ritual at a time

:: Evening Ritual Of Softening ::

Many of you will already know I recorded a few simple guided meditation rituals a while back to help settle, calm and shift your energy. Soften any harsh edges.  They are all free over on soundcloud.

Evening ritual of softening

Slow rest

::

:: Mouth tension ::

Tight tongue equals tense thoughts.

Invite the tongue to soften, spread and relax inside the mouth. 

Sense the instant release of inner clenching in the mouth, jaw, back of the throat and top of the shoulders,

::

:: Healing Hum Breath ::

Breath and sound together, are a healing balm for the whole body.    Deeply settling. Gently comforting. Quietly refreshing. Leaves you feeling a little lighter.

Rest one hand on your head, the other hand on your heart. Eyes close.

Hum gently, on the exhale, with the lips softly touching.

Feel the tingly frequency of the hum spread outwards from the mouth.  Flow willingly into both hands as it settles mental agitation. Clears congested energy around throat, neck and shoulders. Creates space for  heart and head to connect.

Practice 3 rounds of humming on the exhale. Rest for a moment. Notice what you notice. Repeat as needed.

::

:: Anti-anxiety Blue ::

There is a frequency in the colour blue known to soften the intensity of stress, worry and overwhelm.

In your minds eye, imagine a calming shade of blue. Breathe these blue rays through  your whole being. Give it time to soak patiently into the skin, bones, cells and corners of your mind.

In addition, you may like to rest your eyes on something blue.  Let it softly speak the healing language of colour to your nervous system and the deeper inner healer that lives within you.

Colour breathing is a subtle, yet potent ritual to settle and soothe your  emotional energy. Both physically and energetically.

::

:: Flame Medicine ::

Light a candle.

A gentle flame calms & slows everything down.

Gaze with soft, patient eyes into the flame. Feel held and supported by the strength of the flame.

::

:: Grounded Strength ::

Gather your endurance. 

Use your sense of smell to communicate a comforting and soothing message to your body.  A therapeutic aroma that whispers conserve your energy. Root down into the body. Ground.  Centre yourself.  Deep breaths.

Inhale cedarwood essential oil – slowly – when feeling fragile, fearful or not in your body. It will help to settle the charged energy pulsing through you.  Nourish a wired nervous system. Get you out of your head.

Carry a bottle with you.  Sniff often for a dose of calm strength.  Grounded thinking. Calm responses. Imagine the spirit of the cedarwood flowing into your lungs on the inhale, along your spine and down into legs.  Re-awakening a grounded strength within you.
