De-stress Habit no 1: THE Quick Way to Switch from Thinking to Feeling

At some point in life, I decided, not to get up, unless some kind of a positive thought. Woke up very early anyway and saw myself in a messed up situation: burnout, divorce, and on top of it advanced malign melanoma. “Next week might be to late”.

Today, it is just another story, nothing to do with here now and how I feel.

At that time, a lot of negative stuff was crossing my mind all the time, even though I thought of myself as a positive person. Just couldn’t help it. Worked hard on a “change” fighting my mental setup, trying to change the thinking process. Yes, quality of thoughts can change, but there is a much more direct way to get out that, what many experience like a place they got stuck in:

This is the short version. Wake up. Before concentrating on following the flush of thoughts crossing the mind, trying to catch a “good one”, judging each one, believing this is reality, I do this:

WAKE UP! Concentrate to feel the body. Temperature, parts of the body, how does it feel? Soon I feel like warmth, differences in different parts, some are “louder” receive more attention, others more sleepy. The key: non judgemental observation. Then I concentrate on Love. I open my heart or “act as if I could” by being grateful for being awake, aware and alive. If nothing works, I just remember the moment, when my kids came out of the womb – this miracle moment when a brand new human being enters the world. Then, I definitely remember how it feels to feel love and to open the heart. Suddenly, life flows through the body, and feel it consciously, it feels like I AM love, that “stuff” flow right through me.

This habit like any habit works best, when practiced regularly. Give it 3 minutes in the morning, before you get out of day and feel free to take another minute here and there, during the day. Just get to a quiet place, take 3 deep breaths, relax the body as you exhale with a nice deep sight and focus! After 3 weeks, you feel it too, as long as you don’t judge and trust the process. Then, don’t stop! Ever!

All the best,

Manuela
