Happy Thursday everyone! If you have been following along, you all know that I have been taking on new initiatives to continue my journey of living a simplistic and minimalistic lifestyle by practicing the art of relaxation. It has been about a week now and I’m feeling really great so far! I already find myself having a stronger power over my mind in terms of where my energy is focused, which actually helped me to control a (mini) panic attack I experienced over Thanksgiving break, and I would love to share with you the technique I used to restore my body’s energy.
I have always struggled with food and have had eating issues (I don’t use the word ‘disorder’) ever since I was around 12 years old. I actually have never publicly announced my eating issues before so it is extremely reassuring that I am able to openly talk about it today. However, I did have a small relapse during Thanksgiving dinner last week as I sat at the table ready to eat. Looking at my plate, my mind panicked as past thoughts and fears reoccured. Usually an attack like that lasts about an hour but I was not going to let that happen, especially not at Thanksgiving dinner.
I closed my eyes and literally envisioned myself redirecting the negative energy inside of me as I tapped on a pressure point on my wrist. This method is called tapping; it is like the psychological version of acupuncture.
The combination of tapping on certain pressure points while voicing positive affirmation works to clear the emotional block from the body’s bioenergy system and therefore “restarts” your mind and body’s balance. This is essential for optimal health and even the healing of physical disease. Read more about tapping here.
That is the first step in my journey to achieve a happy and minimalistic lifestyle and I am very content with it so far! That is why I chose the quote above for this week!
Stay happy, stay positive! 🙂
