So often I hear people saying they are rushed, tired and overwhelmed. They are running from one meeting to the next, stressed about paying bills and worried about keeping others happy.
What they are ultimately doing is living in fear. Fear of being late. Fear of not having enough money. Fear of disappointing others. And the BIG one -fear of not being good enough.
Do you see yourself in that scenario? If so, here is something that always works for me.
Your mind cannot live in fear and love simultaneously. Therefore, the answer is to increase love. This must begin by increasing the love inside of You!
Begin by understanding a new concept. Green is the color of love. Yes, Green! I know what you are thinking - wait a minute, what about red; the color of valentines, hearts and roses?
Chakras, or energy centers, are located at strategic points in the body and are aligned with a color value. The heart Chakra is green and corresponds with unconditional love, compassion and healing. Imagine a beautiful glowing emerald green circle that radiates around your heart.
To increase love in yourself, for yourself and for others, you must fill this energy center with love. This will in turn multiply and fill you with love. Love will then spill outwardly - to others and to every aspect of your life.
This is where my Breath of Green comes in. How often do you see green? Green is everywhere! When you see green take in a slow, deep breath. As you do, visualize breathing in Green; breathing in Love. At first you may even say out loud or to yourself, "breathe in Love."
As you exhale imagine pushing out fear. Visualize fear as black, dirty, and ugly. At first you may even say out loud or to yourself, "breathe out Fear."
This only takes a few seconds. Breathe in fresh clean love. Exhale painful fear. With every breath you will feel calmer. No one will even know you are doing it, but they will notice a change in you. YOU will FEEL a change in you.
Soon you will begin to see green everywhere. Your eyes will begin searching for it. A woman will walk into a meeting wearing a green sweater. A dog with a green leash will walk by you on the sidewalk. The menu at the lunch deli will have the special outlined in green. The junk mail you are throwing away will be in a green envelope. You will see a green light as you are driving -Go now- breathe in love!
Make an effort to try this for one week. Once you experience the cleansing of fear and feel the new calmness of love take over, you will want to continue this practice.
