Easy Exercise for Peaceful Personal Time
IN ALL THINGS, in all your habits, in all your transitions, in all your goals, take personal, quiet
time to be with you. Time where you sit and think of nothing. Time where you sit and do
nothing. This exercise will help keep you balanced and centered. It will help you remain calm
and in control of your emotions and actions when everything else is busting loose.
If you find nothingness hard, concentrate on your breathing. Close your eyes and take long,
slow, deep breathes. As your lungs inflate and deflate with air, picture the air going into your
throat, down your esophagus, into your lungs and back out the same path. Picture your chest
rising and falling with every breath. A few of my clients even listen to instrumental music
during their quiet time, slow, methodical instrumental music. It helps them focus, concentrate
and get centered. My favorite instrumentalist is Keiko Matsui.
As you work towards your goals to create your new liberated life, challenges and obstacles will
come. You have to keep a level head to prevent them from getting the best of you and causing
catastrophic setbacks. You have to do what is best for you in the time and space you can
control. And you can. You have the ability to accomplish your wildest dreams and then some!
All that you have persevered through to get you this far has prepared you for what is to come.
Remember the last time you made up your mind that you were going to win and you did. This
is no different. It may be a little bigger dream and it may take a little longer to obtain, but in
the end it will be yours – Learning to Live Unashamed of Your Secret Life!
