Suggestions to Lessen Acute Stress
These are ideas to help when you are in the middle of a very stressful situation. They can be done at other times of the day, too, as part of an inwardly focused practice.
1. Breathe with intention. Take three deep breathes. a. Set your intention to breathe in Life, Light, Joy, Happiness, whatever good vibration works for you. (You can set this intention at the beginning of the day…”Every time I breathe in today, I will breathe in Perfect Health”, etc.) b. Set the intention to breathe out negativity, stress, manic thoughts, etc. every time you breathe out.
2. Ask your inner self / higher self / God-self to help you let go of the emotional and mental reasons and causes that you are feeling stress. Your inner self (the space you go to when you are quiet) knows how to do this. These reasons and causes may be fear, anger, resentment, hatred, anxiety, lack of abundance, jealousy, envy, etc. It is time to let these negative vibrations go.
3. Start breathing in the good vibration that is the counter to the reason of the stress. For example: If you have fear, breathe in Love. If you have jealousy, breathe in Abundance or Self Love (you can’t be jealous of someone else if you truly love yourself in a healthy way.) If you have anxiety, breathe in Ease and Flow of Energy or Movement. The sky is the limit!! If you can’t think of anything, breathe in Light to counteract the darkness of stress.
4. Repeat as necessary!
5. Consider longer term suggestions to lessen chronic stress and improve your health so that acute stress happens less and less often. These include items your parents have told you for years! Eat a healthier diet; get plenty of sleep and reasonable exercise especially outdoor activities to reconnect to Mother Earth. Also consider taking a class or treat yourself to private energy sessions to help you move through the issues that are creating the stress.
