When perceived obstacles appear in our lives, they often bring with them fears and anxieties. We know these fears and anxieties don’t serve us well, however, they can often creep in and take hold of us, separating us from our truth.
So here is a little meditation I use to just ground myself or for when I can feel myself being swept up by fear and anxiety, especially those times in the middle of the night when thoughts have a tendency to come alive:
Take some deep breaths in and out, expanding your lungs as far as you can during the inhale, pushing your ribs right out, and sucking your tummy right in as far as you can during the exhale. Do this a number of times until you find yourself ready to release a big sigh upon exhalation.
Your mind and your body should now feel more relaxed.
Now think of a time when you were truly loved. Connect to this feeling of being truly loved through your breath. Breathe this love in deeply and invite its energy to soak into your being – imagine or feel it penetrate every cell of your body. Anchor yourself to the truth of this love and imagine or feel its truth solidify in your being.
Now think about something you feel really grateful for. Connect to this feeling of gratitude through your breath. Breathe in this feeling of gratitude deeply, and invite its energy to soak into your being – imagine or feel it penetrate every cell of your body. Anchor yourself to the truth of this gratitude and imagine or feel its truth expand grace within you.
If at any time your mind wanders bring it back by deepening your breath.
Now tell yourself, as you breathe in deeply – ‘I am loved and I am safe. I trust myself and my truth is my anchor’. Release your breath and imagine or feel your fears and anxieties dissolving away.
Continue to say this mantra over and over until you embody it, and until you have opened up a space within you where your real truth can reside.
I hope this helps to calm your fears and anxieties and brings you back in-line with your truth
From my heart to yours
