You've Got This

Anxiety is a normal part of life and we all experience it to some degree. It's part of the natural response to stressful high-stakes situations: a job interview, a work deadline, a health issue, an emergency, etc...

However, there can be times when anxiety builds up around smaller issues - issues with fewer potential consequences.

As your anxiety and fear builds up, you convince yourself that the situation is daunting and it's easy to blow things out of proportion. Even if you know it's not a big deal intellectually, you still find yourself getting worked up.

While there may be emotional and psychological factors that contribute to your anxiety, it's often a sign that you're ungrounded or that you have an energetic block.

When you find yourself worrying about an upcoming situation, the best thing to do is to practice grounding yourself . Visualize the cause of the stress falling away down your grounding cord. Feel your connection to the earth. Breathe! Remind yourself that you are a lot more capable than you are giving yourself credit for.

If you are in the middle of dealing with the situation, take a deep breath and clear your mind. Be in the moment.

When you clear your mind and take the first step, you will feel your courage and confidence returning. Trust yourself - you've got this!


Reclaim Your Power!

Negative, stressful things happen! We all know someone (or maybe it’s us) who is going through a difficult time - a relationship issue, job loss or a health issue.

When these things happen, you tend to feel powerless. Your sense of strength and purpose is challenged. Anxiety kicks in and the nagging voice of worry and self-doubt takes over.

Situations where you feel unempowered create blocks and imbalances in your third Chakra.

The third Chakra is your energetic power center. It’s located above your belly button in the solar plexus. Confidence and self-esteem come from a healthy third Chakra

So - what can you do to regain your power when life throws you a curveball?

It sounds like a cliché, but it starts with taking a deep breath.

Bringing oxygen to your solar plexus will cleanse and re-energize your Chakra and restore the flow of energy. Also, focusing on your breath will help quiet your mind.

Take deep controlled breaths. Focus on the air gently moving in and filling your belly. With each exhale, feel the stress and negativity releasing.

If your mind starts to chatter, pause and then re-focus on your breathing.

Once your mind is quiet, continue to breathe deeply and imagine a bright golden ball of energy coming down over your head. As the gold light moves down through your body, you feel it healing and restoring every part of you.

See the energy reach your solar plexus. Feel the doubt and anxiety being washed away. Continue to breathe.

When you feel restored, allow the energy to continue down through your body and out through the soles of your feet.
