I want to share with you a technique I developed as an extremely important tool in my daily life. First though, a short summary of the past.
It affects all of us – especially on a “bad day”; the stranger walking towards you with an agressive stride, glaring furiously and emitting the blackest energy.
I used to buckle up instinctially and prepare myself for battle. Tension grabbed my whole body and the mind kept screaming for me to either fight or flight. After the encounter had taken place I felt drained, tired, anxious and out of sync. This was my old, ineffective and miserable approach.
The new one is ground breaking and yet profoundly simple: just – let – go.
Whenever you find yourself in the same situation as mentioned above, conciously relaxe your whole body and make yourself completely soft. In essence, let go. You’ll be surprised how this changes everything and makes you infinately much stronger than before. How this unprotectivness, honesty and vulnerability can be used as a weapon of peace is jsut amazing.
P.S For those of you who recognize yourself (and I bet there are a few)…it takes time. Personally I’ve had tremendous help from my daily yoga practise. I had no idea how stiff my whole body was before I engaged myself in the different asanas. I had also no idea what incredible strenght you can gain from training your focus. If you think this sounds like its worth a shot, I’d suggest you start practising sun salutation every day for 10-15 minutes. It’ll give you awsome results which will change your energy, graze, mental clarity and posture.
Well, feels like I could almost write a complete book about this since the effect on myself is so significant. But for the time I’ll leave you with the info above. Gr8 day, awsome potentials waiting for us. Take care all!
what strangers do or think I don’t care.
but then I’d second a daily yoga practice.
