THE ISOLATION, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY THAT YOU FEEL has already been felt by someone else. There is always someone out there who feels exactly the way that we feel—someone who has been there before and can offer advice. There is always someone in need of the advice that we have to offer. All you need to do is connect with that person to apply to the solution to your own life. WE HOLD SPACE FOR GRATITUDE. We hold space for the people who create the conveniences that we sometimes take for granted because they come so easy to us. Maybe it's the person who let us pull in front while in traffic when they probably didn't have to; the person who cleaned the last public restroom we used; who invited us to come into a space where we felt safe.THE MORE WE LOOK FOR REASONS TO BE GRATEFUL, the abundance flows and it becomes tangible.WHEN WE CAN COMMUNICATE MORE EFFECTIVELY WITH OUR SELF, we are able to build stronger relationships with friends, lovers, and strangers. Communicating with kindness and respect creates the kind of community that we want to live in.THERE ARE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ALL CONNECTED DOING THE SAME THING WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING IT. With 7.8 billion people around the world, there are at least 100 million people right now who are having the same thoughts that we do and feeling the same emotions that we feel. They are feeling the same sensations, the same emotions, experiencing the same circumstances to varying degrees, having the same circles of friends who play the same roles who have the same conversations. They think the same thoughts, believe the same things, just in different places all across the world. OUR ACCESS TO THE INTERNET in the midst of what we feel is physical distancing is actually miraculous. When I think about 1918, they obviously didn't have the internet, and most people weren't using telephones until the 1920’s. The only way that they knew there was a problem is when it directly impacted people they know. Imagine how easy it was to feel isolated then, thinking that it was only happening to them, in their community, in their state, without any idea that it was happening worldwide.BREATHING TOGETHER IS SUCH AN INTIMATE THING. To know that your breath is moving in the rhythm of someone else's. If you've ever laid heart to heart with someone and felt their breath it's like their soul seeping into yours. It's powerful. This connection that we make together, this time we spend together, has the power to change things. I hope to convince you that what we perceive in our mind is more real than what we see with our eyes. My intention is to give you mind-shifting strategies that make you feel like your mind is a Zen escape room—a mental sanctuary—so when things get challenging in the world, you always have a safe space to go, even if it’s just one breath at a time. My hope is that you walk away feeling internally empowered with visualization and breathing exercises that immediately relieve tension and control anxiety. The visualization and breathing techniques here will help you change your emotional state when life feels stressful and allow you to respond more to the circumstances in life rather than react to them.JOIN the Spoken Word Yoga Community and receive a free e-book, 10 Tips for a Positive Mental Shift, to instantly improve your energy!
