The technique that I am going to share with you I learned from a wonderful life coach named Marinna Siri. If you would like to learn more about her she has a great website at: http://beabsolutelyfree.weebly.com/index.html.
Marinna taught me that we attract to us emotions through vibration. Each emotion has its own vibration and we can change how we are feeling by changing the vibration in our own bodies. This comes from the law of resonance which states that when two vibrationing systems come into contact with each other, the vibration of the weaker body will adjust its energy to match that of the stronger body. This is not a new concept and I have heard about this many times before but never really experimented with it until I met her.
Love, gratitude, and joy are some emotions that have the highest frequency of vibration. By creating high frequency vibrations in yourself you can begin to feel happy even on your worst days. To do this you have to take time each day to kind of meditate. I am not talking about meditating in the traditional Hindu or Buddhist way but in a very simple and easy to follow way.
First thing that you need to do is commit to yourself that you are going to love yourself. Then you have to take an assessment of your state of mind in the moment. I like to lay down when I am doing this activity mostly because I do it first thing in the morning before getting out of bed. Plus it helps me relax and live in the moment. As you assess your feelings, simply learn to be present. Start by just taking an assessment of your physical feelings. Scan your body starting with your toes and tune into anything that is going on. Slowly work your way up into your ankles, to your knees, then thighs… all the way up to your head. All you need to do is by the watcher of the sensations that you are feeling. If you are not feeling anything, take your hand and touch your arm or shoulder or somewhere else on your body. This will give you a baseline of your physical state.
Now begin to look inside at the emotions that you are feeling. If you fully feel an emotion, it should peak in about 10-30 seconds. What you’ll find is that emotions come to you in waves. When we feel like we are drowning it is because we have lost ourselves in the waves and our goal is to jump up on top of the wave and ride it. By becoming the watcher of the waves, you put yourself in a position to ride the wave much easier and take yourself out of the victim role. Soon you will become good at surfing your waves and not letting them push you down.
Once you are present and aware of the emotions you are feeling then you can begin to change the frequency you experience with certain issues. My issue recently has everything to do with trust. So as I think about the issue and become present with myself and become the watcher of my emotions; I start to allow my mind to think about happy times. Times when I experienced higher frequency emotions. For me this was the first time I held my children. Remember, if you are doing it right, if you are riding your waves of emotions, you should be almost outside of your body. Like you are watching a movie but also experiencing the movie at the same time. So as I lay there and allow my mind to picture the first time I held my children in my arms, my heart starts to feel lighter. The heavy feeling I was having as I thought about my trust issues begin to also feel lighter. The whole time I am going through all these emotions I breathe deeply. What you are doing is training your body how to feel with each deep breath. Doing this exercise everyday, trains your body how you want to feel and by connecting it to your breath you are training your body to feel lighter with each breath. That way, when you find yourself in an anxious place… you have to ask your boss for a raise, or you have to confront your significant other or your Ex about an issue that feels heavy to you… you can calm yourself down and feel lighter just by breathing. Then you are able to address the issue with confidence.
