Retreat to Connect to Joy

Retreats are a necessity in our world today. Create a refuge in your mind and experience joy in a moment's notice. With the stress of the economy causing more and more anxiety, tension, and stress; stress management is a valuable tool. Here are some quick tools to keep you centered no matter what is going on around you. Hope this video and post brings you joy!

1. Decide on a word that symbolizes joy. For me it is the hummingbird. It can be "I choose to feel safe and experience joy." If you have no memories of joy then you need to create those feelings and anchor them into your body.

2. Next think of the most beautiful and peaceful place that you can remember. As you hold a picture of this place. Remember all the details. See all the colors, see and visualize everything clearly in your mind. The more clearly you can imagine your peaceful place, in your mind, the more powerfully you can anchor in the feeling of joy.

3. The next step is to feel the joy that your place brings to your body, mind and spirit. Add the feeling of gratitude for having this beautiful and peaceful place. As you hold the feeling of joy, say your anchor phrase, and see your peaceful place. Take five long deep breaths. Feel all the cells, and atoms of your body bathed in love, light, and joy.

Leave me a message and let me know how this works for you. Also leave me a message with your most challenging stress and I will leave you tools to release your stress.
