Do you ever feel like your brain is going to over heat? Boy, there have been days, and nights, when I felt so overwhelmed that it was hard to see a way forward. Adrenalin was coursing through my veins, and my brain was in overdrive, trying to think my way out of the latest perceived emergency. Fight or flight at its finest.
Even with your brain on fire, your breath can calm the flames and move your energy from your head into your heart. Your breath can create a space, a cool pathway out of your panic. Try to visualize inhaling deeply through your nose and down into your heart. Then exhaling out through the top of your head. Sounds strange, but it will relax your mind and help you to recenter yourself.
Let your breath take you out of your head and into your heart.
Feel your inner body
Feel the inner stillness deep inside.
Stay rooted within. (Eckhart Tolle)
