Learn to be grounded

Good morning beautiful people! When we begin to understand the interconnectivity of our brain and body we can begin to heal and become our whole self. When we experience trauma we cut off parts of ourselves to avoid pain. We develop unhealthy coping mechanisms to dull the sharpness of our hurt. . . Take a moment to do some grounding and sit with your whole self. Find somewhere comfy to sit. Feet apart and hands resting on your lap not touching. . . Take a deep breath in through your nose, hold for a few seconds and slowly exhale through your nose. Notice your breath. Actively slow your breath so you aim for 4 – 7 breaths per minute. Time it if needed so you get a feel of this slow pattern. . . Feel the ground beneath your feet, the chair beneath your body. Wriggle your toes. Put relaxation in to your muscles staring from the toes, up through your legs, your tummy, your chest, shoulders arms fingers… spine and over top of head in to your face. . . Notice the sounds all around inside and outside then back to your breath. . . Notice your thoughts just coming and going then back to your breath. . . What can you feel in your body. Any knots or tension. Breathe deeply in to that too. . . Wishing you a peaceful Sunday ❤ . . . . . . . . . . . #healing #love #meditation #selflove #healthylifestyle #yoga #wellness #spiritual #selfcare #spirituality #tattoos #energy #mindfulness #nutrition #cleanliving #cleaneating #happiness #raiseyourfrequency #mentalhealthawareness #inspiration #motivation #consciousness #loveyourself #lovetheskinyourein #lightworker #positivevibes #awakening #indigogoddess #recharge
