Bi-lateral stimulation helps the brain to process stress. If you go for a walk you may have experienced how this helps you get clear on a problem or how it uplifts your mood. Let your mind be as it is while you walk. Release any goals and feel the sensations of the walk as thoughts, sensations and emotions come and go. In this process you may end up crying, getting clear on a issue or gaining a greater sense of contentment.
Follow this with any of the exercises in this presentation that help you including the triple warmer exercise.
Neurons that fire together get wired together as neural networks in the brain. When you saver sensations related to such things as relief, joy, accomplishment, and contentment you help to wire these as networks. As you continue to marinate in the sensations these networks become stronger and more available.
Savoring the sensations also helps your cells to know how you want to create yourself. This bountiful meditation is best to do in the moment you are experiencing the greatest intensity of sensation you wish to grow such as joy or calm. The key is to savor it for at least 10 seconds while you are in the experience and then bring up the activating situation and savor the sensations for at least 10 seconds prior to going to sleep and upon waking, everyday, for three weeks. This is also an excellent meditation to do with the new neural networks established during a Wellness Coaching session.
Slow down, feel the sensation of the support underneath you and savor the flavor and textures of your food to help your nervous system wire or use those pleasure pathways of thriving. Stop eating when you are 70% full knowing you can always come back for more later. If this is difficult, savor a warm 8 oz cup of your favorite tea or hot cocoa made with nut milk (sweeten with monk fruit or stevia).
Take the time to dry brush your body prior to your shower or bath while you send love to every part of your body.

This can energize or relax your nervous system depending on your application and who you are. Applying the hydrotherapy with at least 10 seconds of cool water (no more than 30 seconds) at the end of your shower is helpful. If you like the hydrotherapy you can go back and forth from warm to cold at least 3 times. Lastly, put a filter on your shower head so you do not expose yourself to chlorine, fluoride or other highly toxic chemicals commonly used in public water supplies.

Stretching with deep full breathing can enable the body to be more open energetically. Please check with your doctor for the appropriate stretches. I recommend you lay on the earth, if possible face down, and bring your torso up off the ground as your arms support you. Breathe into the pose and feel any sensation of loosening or tightness free from judgment. Hold at least 15 seconds or longer depending on comfort. This opens the front of the body which has many meridians running through it. Use the same protocol for side stretches, downward dog, upward cat and other stretches recommended by your doctor.
Animals show us this wonderful wisdom. How often do you notice your cat or dog stretching it's spine throughout the day with a downward dog or upward cat pose....maybe you can join in!

Individually or as a family deepen on the meanings of the the virtues (hold your cursor over the virtue to see the meaning), make cards or order virtue cards from the Virtues Project and appreciate yourself and others practicing the virtues. Think about how it fits in your life, use the words with yourself, family or colleagues and hold an event with your family or friends where your study the virtues together. This helps to form your new energy field and the blessings you are attracting with your thoughts and words! When you are late say "I appreciate your patience" and notice the sensation of this verses "I am sorry". When someone helps, verbalize how you appreciate the helpfulness and kindness and then savor the sensation. This usually creates sensations connected with elongation of the spine and smiles for everyone. Savor the sensations! Take one virtue a week and deepen on it, use it in communication and then savor the effects!
Stand, sit or walk while noticing how you connect to the earth below. Let go of what is or appears to be effort and trust your energy field to take care of that. Be with the sensations or feelings you are experiencing. Allow a space of stillness where you can witness how your body dissipates, communicates and unfolds through its' innate knowing of how to heal or just be.
Maintaining your new holographic image requires you to create a new way of being in alignment with who you truly are. Maintaining a clutter free mind and environment assists this process.

Just breathe while you feel the sensations of support underneath you. If you can be outside feeling the earth beneath your feet this is optimal. Locate the K1 point which is at the bottom your foot and feel the sensation of your feet connecting to the support beneath you and through out you. Notice if your breath deepens. Rest into it for a few minutes. End with this exercise by Donna Eden for grounding.

Reprogram yourself for sleep with progressive muscle relaxation.
Step 1: Take a deep breath and hold it for a slow count of five. As you are holding your breath, contract your toes and the muscles of your feet as tightly as you can.
Step 2: After the count of five, exhale an immediately release all the tension in your toes and feet.
Step 3: Take 3 slow breaths and feel the relaxation in your feet. If they still feel somewhat tense, repeat the first 2 steps one or two times.
Step 4: After the feet, work upward, muscle by muscle. Next up is your calves, then your thighs, followed by your hips, your abdomen and torso, your arms, and finally your head, neck, and face. It is common to need an extra cycle or two to get all of the tension out of your head and neck area.

The process of creating your life is the biggest gift you have. Reinforce your new neural networks by supporting your energized brain!

Petting a furry friend can trigger the release of the bonding hormone oxytocin. Marinate in the sensation of their love connection with you. Petting their fur is calming for you both and it lowers your heart rate. If they are small enough, consider holding them on your lap while you are doing something else. For the meditation take a few minutes to savor any sensations related to your connection.
Holding hands produces oxytocin, which makes us feel happier and more loved by our partner. Hold hands and savor the sensation for at least 3 minutes in silence so you can just savor. This can be done sitting or while you go for a walk. This can also be a great savoring meditation with a hug. For the meditation include taking a few minutes to savor any sensations related to your connection.

Humans: Flower Essences are a form of energy medicine in nature. Please talk to your doctor prior to taking essences since they can interfere with other energetic remedies. Your doctor can also test which one is best for you.
Animals: Green Hope Farm has a great line for your animal friends. I like the Bach flower Rescue Remedy for my dog prior to clipping her nails (when we rescued her she had some PTSD regarding this). I have also used this with horses. Both of the links above have a lot of information available if you call and ask for it. Make sure to consult with your vet as well.
