Retreat to Empower Your Dreams

Retreat means to stop and turn within. You can create mini retreats throughout your day to refresh, refocus, and renew your inner peace. One of the first things to acknowledge are your stress triggers. We all have triggers that happen through out our day that cause a "fight or flight" response without our conscious awareness.

How do you deal with this response? At least 80 % of our society have adrenal burn out from this constant fight or flight response to everyday life. Creating "mini retreats" through out your day will change the chemistry of your body, release the stress, and create a new response to your life. During your "mini retreat" breath is your best ally.

Mini Retreat tips

1. Set your calendar through outlook to remind you three times a day for your "mini retreat".

2. During your retreat shut down the phone, computer, and if possible go outside. If not just go into nature in your mind. Visualize your entire being bathed with the golden light of the sun. Breath this light deeply into all your cells.

3. Imagine a light waterfall washing away the chemical response to fight or flight. In your minds eye see your community of cells shinning with light. Allow your nervous system to feel soothed and renewed.

Practice the "mini retreat" for a week. Notice how much more energy and focus you have at the end of your day and through out your week. Retreat allows you to advance in your work and life through the extra energy and focus.

Thanks for the wonderful advice on how to recharge our batteries during the day. It's easy for me to get caught up in "computer time", and therefore forget to go within. I notice the difference when I spend quiet time in reflection, or merely listening to my breathing. Visualizing a scene from nature is a great tip, thanks!
