I hope you are having an amazing week?
Last week I had an absolute blast co-presenting at an event with some inspiring colleagues and friends. Our first She Believes Event, Free To Be Me was a great success and it was so fabulous to see happy shiny women leaving at the end of the day to embrace their weekend, armed with an abundance of new insights and learning they gained during the day. (you can see a pic above of me presenting, and below with the team)
During my presentation I talked about the Self-Acceptance Path and I shared one of my favourite Fear Release Mindfulness Practices. I have had a lot of positive feedback about how helpful this was so I wanted to share it with you all. I wish I could tell you where I originally got this from but I’ve been using it for so long now I cannot remember. Perhaps it was originally a handout from a great event I went to. I have modified it over the years so it fits better for me so please feel free to do the same if you want to.
I also wanted to leave you with this quote that I found on Facebook
“Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and often just before the big achievement, comes apparent failure and discouragement.”
Florence Scovel Shinn
Hang in there!
Until next time I wish you a limitless life filled with succulent, effortess success
p.s. I’d love to know what else you do to release fear. Share your fear busting processes by leaving a comment below
Fear Release Mindfulness Practice
Imagine you are the energy flowing through the body and you can feel yourself as this energy in your body.
Gently close your eyes.
Become very aware of and feel your feet touching the floor. Feel the floor pressing up against your feet.
Find yourself in your body.
Feel your hands and squeeze your fingers together several times, touching the first finger to the thumb on one or both hands.
Notice how the pressure feels on the finger tips.
Take some deep abdominal breaths and focus your attention on feeling the air flowing into your lungs and expanding the lungs and abdominal area.
Tell the part of your mind having the fearful thoughts … “thank you for sharing, all is fine and well”.
Continue to focus on the words all is fine and well. Feel the feeling of being loved and cared for (you need only to accept that you are).
Look around inside your memory or your imagination and find something that makes you smile.
Spend a few moments looking at that or remembering a memory that made you feel joyful, happy and free.
Allow the feeling of the joyful memory to wash over you filling you up with more happiness.
Notice the expansive feeling in your chest.
Relax and be peaceful in the moment.
Remember that at any time you feel fear rising or taking control you can respond by saying “thank you for sharing, all is fine and well”.
