What i found myself doing yesterday, after chats with friends and colleagues was creating a process out of my existing tool belt to help a few friends in particular navigate their way through this couple of days. So this week, in case you're still feeling a little stirred and wondering how do you get out of the momentum of the mental and emotional dust cloud that’s unfolding within and around you like a pack of stampeding stallions, grab hold of the reigns and get back to YOU, your rhythm, and the OTHER reality you could also be living, the one in which you've already succeeded and nailed every challenge, conquered every fear you've just experienced now, quickly.
(In terms of the mindset side of it, there’s a little 7 step tool I created I like to use for that. Ask me if you'd like it.)
The most important download to take from that though, reminds us that most of what we feel when we’re overwhelmed, to put it bluntly, usually a load of unfounded mental B.S. that either hasn’t happened yet and will likely never happen, or happen again. I repeat, the shit that we tell ourselves and the emotional stampede that follows when we’re riddled with anxiety, unless there is legitimately some dude chasing you down the street in that moment, is...not...freaking....real. The brain, as clever as it is, struggles to tell the difference between the latest 3D HD blockbuster scary movie you just created with it, and reality TV. But it’s hard to remember that when you’re neck deep drowning in the emotion of it, hey? That's why i'm now standing in front of you, with love, clicking my fingers with a giant smile saying, "hey you, yes you, snap back out of there!"
"Because, simultaneously, there exists a place where you already successfully navigated this situation, you got all the answers, you got all the support and are in a much happier, more abundant, happy place. What that looks like is unique for each of us. But the choice now, INSTEAD of feeding the wild stallions a bucket of high energy B vitamin loaded high performance thought pellets and clicking at them to giddy up by letting the stream of “BUT WHAT IF, AND I”M SO FREAKING OUT” thoughts continue to run, is to fully reconnect and get back on that track to the at least one of the other realities, timelines in which you've got this NAILED.
In short, here’s how (which is kind of a re-working for the occasion of multiple processes including the GAIA technique we use at WLA, with a pinch of my wisdom thrown in):
And now here’s how you work it in a little more depth.
Just sit, close your eyes and just breathe for a bit, either somewhere that calms you (outdoors if it’s warm enough where you are, or maybe listen to something on one of your devices that chills you out.) The aim though is to breathe and be present with you.
Think of someone that you love. And what it is about them that you love. Remember a happy time with them you had recently that made you smile, maybe laugh and appreciate how lucky you are to have that in your world. Ask yourself what else there is right now to be grateful for in your world. (This immediately shifts your state, out of your head and back into your heart.)
Intend to connect to the reality in which you’ve already successfully solved every care in your head right now, successfully achieved the goals you’ve been setting lately and successfully connected with all of the people, support and resources you needed to get there. Imagine that energy coming towards you and you stepping into it. Let it flow through you and into you. It’s nothing to fear. It’s your DESTINY. And you’ve always been connected to it. While your mind was doing its thing, you just forgot for a bit.
Take it a step further and let that energy (your soul energy) and as much love as you can bring through your heart surround that bit of you that is freaking out (wherever and whenever its from) like a parent would a child. If you need help, call in the energy of the Divine Mother and Father archetypes too and ask them to help you embody them and express them in a way that is uniquely "YOU". Intend to send the love and the energy you just reconnected with to heal the triggered part of you all the way through time and space. You might like to send that love to anyone else that was involved too, again, in all directions of time and space.
Ask for insights on what things you had to do, be, give up, embrace, insights on what input and external input was required to help you get there Eg for what you have to do right now to help create that. Make a note of at least 3 things.
Then take a moment to take stock of all the things in your life that you already have that are already aligned with that reality. Acknowledge your successes and what you already have. Because acknowledging existing success creates more success.
Get back to it and take the action you need to from this place. No more overwhelm. Maximum reconnection with full potential.
Now...onto those 3 things. Let me know how you go.
