How to Breathe, calm and Energize.
Sending Love and Light to all especially now it’s official and we are even more confined.
In my previous posts I’ve provided a short guide to everyone of practices that can bring you peace in the chaos and uncertainty. If you’re new to these practices wish give yourself comfort and a stable anchor then please look back over my posts.
Movement of your body opens your energy to enable your vital organs, your heart, your liver, your lungs to work efficiently. When we sit we are sitting on our vital source of natural energy. It also helps your immune system and overall health and wellness.
Qi Gong is a specific set of movements which activate all the energy points in your and enable the flow of life through your body. These are beautiful soft movements and bring of a feeling that your arms are flowing like water, your legs and feet are rooted to the earth energy. You don’t need to bit as you shouldn’t overstretch your body. Just go within the limits of your body.
This practice is just as essential to you if you are already fit as repetitive sports like running or cycling contract and tighten your muscles when you ideally want to relax and expand your muscles so you have no tightness in your shoulders, legs and hips.
So I adore this video as Mimi explains what each movement does for your body.
There are so many benefits of Qi Gong energy, connection to mind, body and Spirit, it settles your mind towards a state of peace and kindness in these in uncertain times where it’s really important to live in the moment as this situation is constantly evolving.
Om Shanti, Love and Light
Grounding Meditation Calming Energy
Hello Everyone, sending a virtual hug x Mother Nature is sending us some earth medicine. The sun is shining nourishing us with vitamin D and positive vibes. So today more than ever and everyday we can look to mother earth for grounding and connecting to the calming Earth Energy.
The sayings she/he 'lives in the clouds' or 'cloud cuckoo land' or when we can't think straight because we're so anxious or stressed are the opposite of grounding. I touched on this in my guide on How to Breathe to Calm and Soothe Yourself in my first post during this series
Even better is to go outside even if you live in the city - in your yard or garden or balcony but you can still do it inside, by a window is good. Wherever, but be mindful of the distance of those around you if you're in a public space.
Walk barefoot in your garden if or in a safe space outside or in your home on a wood or natural floor, if not you can visualize a beautiful beach or forest, the sand between your toes or the cool soil beneath your feet.
Close your eyes and stand with your feet shoulder width apart, or in a chair with your feet firmly on the ground and your hands on your thighs to keep your energy within. Mindfully feel the grass, feel the sun and it's healing light and the air against your skin, breathe deeply for 6 slow seconds. Feel your breath slowly passing your heart into your belly, feel the pull of the earth energy beneath your feet guiding you down to the calmness yet revitalizing earth energy. Exhale slowly feeling your belly deflate, your breath past your solar plexus, past your heart and let the tension flow out of your body through your mouth, relaxing your shoulders and saying ahhhhhhh let your bottom jaw drop. Let out all the fear, the anger the feeling of helplessness, breath in hope, joy and positivity for 6 slow seconds.
This breathwork and meditation enable you to ground yourself to the calming energy beneath you.
This situation will pass, this situation is temporary.
Namaste-Sent with love and heart energy guidance.

Breathing to relieve Anxiety and Stress is the most important thing we can do at this stressful time. to I feel it's the time to reach and do something practical especially to support each other and those who may already be alarmed, anxious and stressed by these challenging times and at times feeling isolated or lonely.
Maybe this might not be the case tonight but this situation is changing day by day and hopefully our lives as we knew them will resume. In the meantime it's a time to be there for each other.
Take care of those who feel scared, use breathwork and meditation to combat your anxiety and stress naturally, be kind to ourselves and others who now are worried not only about heath but just how they're going to survive if they have lost their jobs or how their lives will be affected or if the work they love has just grinded to a halt for many reasons.
The world is stepping back so mother earth can breathe and cleanse, heal and replenish. We look to each other for the same, with supportive love we can heal this world, ourselves, be there for those who need to feel safe in the midst of the sad chaos to come.
I'm going to use this blog to guide and to support our spirits, nourish our souls with light so that we can all find peace and strength and use this vital natural practice of Breathing to relieve Anxiety and Stress.
Sending Love and light to all, Breathe and be.
This really is the time to embrace Gratitude, How lucky most of us are. We have love, we are healthy, we have good food, we have shelter and for some us an animal or child who gives us unconditional love and we give the same - what else do we really need? Bar an end to this horrendous virus. Is this the new humanity? When the materialistic wanting stops that is peace, Be safe
