We have choice.
For some of us, negative thinking creeps in through our cracks, and we find ourselves IN IT, deeper than we thought. It looks different from time to time, person to person, but it is whatever is draining us … overwhelm about our health or work or inner life or our physical homes, concern about country and planet, fear about the present and the future, frustration about what we cannot shift, panic because it feels like too much to handle, ongoing worry that saps us slowly away, grief and resignation for things gone, or gone too far… these can become inner states that lock us out of a way forward, sunken and stuck.
We have choice.
And we have ways to focus our actions, which at first can feel like wrestling the steering wheel with all our might, to get the truck up out of the ditch and back onto smooth pavement, and move forward.
Here are two Energy Medicine Tools from Donna Eden – first, to shift your energies out of a stuck (homolateral) pattern and into movement and communication (cross-lateral) where possibilities can again appear … possible. And the second one, to generate both peace in the present moment, and momentum to take appropriate actions and move towards what we really want.
Shoulder To Opposite Hip Trace
Place your hands on the tops of your thighs and take three deep and relaxing breaths. Rub your hands briskly together and shake them. Place right hand on the muscles between your neck and shoulder on your left side. Squeeze and massage those muscles a few times, inhale, and on your exhale drag the palm of your hand from left shoulder to right hip with firm pressure. Repeat from the right shoulder, using your left hand. Alternate this tracing gesture 3 or 4 times with slow and deliberate motions.
Nine Hearts Next, we can use the healing and energizing influence of our hands to activate a potential of joy, healing and positivity that is resting within us. Our life force responds to this pattern of flow, movement and direction when we move our hands with mindful and kind intent. We wake up our own innate power that is waiting to bring us to our peace, to the action that is ours to take, and to hope. Here is Prune Harris showing you how to do this simple exercise in a beautiful way and in a lovely place.
When we feel very stuck, our thinking and beliefs are some of the most stubborn mules in the barn. Besides using the energies of our bodies to shift into a positive frame, I like to use words. Thinking and beliefs dress up in words, so giving them something else to wear helps us to choose different thinking. For me today, I have decoratively written on a 3×5 card the words:
“Gratitude-View. Choose happiness now. Single Focus Peace. Lean into Support … Nature, Angels, Humans, Music, Beauty, and Tea.”
Wishing you every wellness,
