We have all heard about relaxation and stress relief techniques but what about soothing your soul?
Have you ever considered what one actually does to soothe the soul? There’s more than one way to take care of ourselves in a physical context or to give our minds a break but how does one give our essence of being a break from the everyday hustle?
Have you ever found yourself not feeling relaxed despite an intense effort to do so? Then it could be time for you to address this vital piece of yourself.
Despite popular belief, this aspect of ourselves is just as important as the conceivable ones. If you don’t take the time to truly connect with who you are on a deeper level, your emotions will boil over and you’ll be stuck wondering why you can’t find solace or release from the daily grind.
Here is a simple guide on how to get started in soothing your own soul…
Get in touch
One of the first things you’ll want to do is to put yourself into a state of receptivity with your energetic flow. In order to do this you must clear the annoying little bugs that are running rampant in you mind.
Take the time to listen to music, meditate, be in nature, and/or focus on a spot on any wall. Get back in touch with the simple things. Let your thoughts run and then simply release them.
Using visualization is an awesome way to get back in touch with our own essence. Picture what it might be like to see your own energy field. There are a vast number of ways to do this.
Is your soul a ball of light? A humanoid figure? A dancing sprite? An orb that surrounds you? Light beams that spread out from your body? An ocean wave? (The sky’s the limit when it comes to picturing what your higher self looks like.)
This simple act can allow for reconnection to a part of you that needs your personal attention. From here you may be able to use your intuition to discover precisely what you need to re-energize.
Picture yourself being bathed in a soothing white or golden light that stretches down into your body. Imagine the warmth taking over and cleansing all that you’ve been taking into your own frequency.
As the sparkling vibrancy fills you, imagine it cleansing away all of the negative energy you may have built up by interacting with others or negative situations. (Some people do this in the shower by letting the water run down their face, head, and back while they imagine all of the water cleansing the negative energy down the drain.)
Sit, listen, and focus
Some people find it hard to meditate or visualize this auric part of themselves, and that’s okay! For those of us that can’t, it’s a simple task of sitting down and focusing on a point, object, or specific thoughts that center us.
Clear out the clutter by putting order to the chaotic whirlwind of your mind/emotions and make space for good intentions. These vibes will automatically up your frequency and soothe you from the daily grind. Believe it or not, our soul craves this kind of interaction!
If you can, find the time to listen to some binaural beats or the sound of water to focus your intent. Getting in touch with nature can really help here!
Spend time in a flow
What does it mean to be in ‘a flow’?
In order to find yourself in a flow with everything around you, you can easily relax your frequency by reminding yourself with simple mantras repeated in your mind:
“I am in the flow. I am one with everything.
As above, so below.
We are all one. The universe and I are in flow.“
Repeating these in our mind instead of repeating negative messages or distractions can center us. These mantras, or one you create, can place you in a state of relaxation that will release you from the constraints of time.
It’s in this sacred space that you can focus on being in the present moment, simply flowing with all around you as you connect to the positive flow of the universe.
This guide is only a simplification of the many ways you can soothe your soul and raise those vibes. Our soul/essence/aura/energy/higher self needs just as much attention as our body and mind does. This is how we achieve balancing our inner needs so they can reflect in our outer reality, thus creating a better daily experience for our own energetic balance.
