Today, I’m going to be sharing with you two efficient healing strategies to help you manage where you are right now during these troubling times and how you can move forward in a positive direction contributing wellness, understanding, and respect to these issues and to any other issues you need to gain control over.
As we continue to experience COVID-19 and racial injustice in our world, these tools will help you during this critical time in our history and they will help you during a critical time in your personal life. Whether you have a voice loud enough for all the world to hear; whether you prefer to do your part quietly from the sidelines; if you’re just not sure what to do, or maybe you feel your voice doesn’t matter. I’m going to teach you how you can contribute to your own personal welfare and to the welfare of our nation at large by helping you to create space in your body and movement in the world to unblock limiting beliefs like fear, guilt, worry, and shame.
In a very short period of time and with a few simple steps, you will learn how to shift yourself to a state where you can be free from anxiety, social conditioning, and trauma. And I’m even going to teach how to help others by doing some surrogate healing.
The Peace Procedure
The Peace Procedure is the first strategy I want to introduce you to. The Peace Procedure is about releasing what no longer serves you. It’s an exercise that invites you to call to mind an issue you’d like to get control over. It can be a bad habit, an uncomfortable memory, an event, a physical or emotional pain you would like to get rid of. And because so many people are suffering from the effects of COVID and the racial divide in our country, you may want to put your focus there. Everyone is in a different place, so I invite you all to remain where you are physically, and emotionally, and work with what presents itself to you today.
I’m going to walk you through The Peace Prodceure right now so you can experience it for yourself. Get yourself comfy now and close your eyes. Take three nice, deep inhales and exhales before we begin. Breathe deep down into your belly and exhale audibly through an open mouth.
Identify An Issue
I invite you now to simply call to mind an issue you’d like to gain control over. It could be a memory, an unpleasant experience, or a physical or emotional pain you would like to get rid of. Again, keep it simple. Whatever comes to mind is what your body is asking you to deal with right now at this moment, so stick with that. Even if a lot of things are popping up, choose one. After learning this procedure you can always go back and work on the other issues that may be popping up.
Rate the Intensity
With the issue in the forefront of your mind, sit with it for a moment. Be with it. Breathe into it. Notice it. Don’t judge it. Just notice it. What is it? Call it what it is, without judgment. Now, I would like you to rate the state you are in at this moment. On a scale of 0 – 10 with 0 meaning “I’m totally fine.” and 10 meaning “I am freaking out!”, rate how you feel as you sit here with this visual, this memory, or this pain. The first number you see or hear is the number you want to work with. This isn’t hard, so keep it easy. The number you see is the number to keep. Remember that number. This is your Beginning Number: #_______
A Loving Remembrance
Now, put that visual aside for a moment and I want you to shift your focus to a loving moment in your life. It can be with a person, pet, movies, a moment in nature. A simple remembrance will do, there’s no need for a big production. Call to mind any moment or memory in your life that brings you joy, that brings you ease, that brings you peace. I’m getting you to tune into your inner wisdom here, to tune into a greater source of love.
