Stress Buster Three just in time for the holidays

Are you now feverishly running around shopping, planning, decorating and has it just occurred to you that there are only 5 days left until Christmas?????!!!!

OK…if you have been doing the suggestions in Stress Buster one and two, you should be calmer than you otherwise might have been, but here is another little stress reliever  to keep the stress-free momentum going.

Place your left hand on your forehead and your right hand on the top of your head.  Close your eyes and breathe deeply for two minutes.  Notice how you feel when you begin this exercise and compare that to how you feel in two minutes time.  One way we can “measure” our feelings and any energetic shifts we experience is to scale them.  At the beginning, scale how stressed you feel on a scale of 1 to 10 with one being “not so much” and ten being “extreme stress”.  Now the trick here is to not think about your answer.  Just take the first number that comes into your head.  If you think about your answer, you are engaging your conscious mind with all of its filters and inhibitions. This answer may not be the whole truth!  A spontaneous answer comes from your subconscious mind.  Your subconscious mind is where your belief system is held and the answers that come from here are always the truth about you.  If it is a contest between your conscious and your subconscious mind, your subconscious mind (belief system) will always win out.  This is when self-sabotage can come into your life.  If you want to change, then you need to go to the root which is your belief system and change it. Often our beliefs which began under the influence of our parents and are really their beliefs, no longer serve us…they are outdated and need upgrading.  This is where hypnosis is incredibly powerful, safe and phenomenally effective.   So begin this exercise by scaling your level of stress, and end it by scaling your level of stress.  Any shift, no matter how minor, is still a shift in the right direction…away from stress.  Repeat this exercise remembering to include the deep breathing, until your level of stress is 2 or less.  At this stage, you can more easily handle anything the holidays throw at you.  AND, you are armed and empowered with three easy and powerful stress relievers.
