Sometimes when you’re feeling off, it’s easy to ask, “What’s wrong with me?” That question is an old habit and only brings more frustration, because you get no answer. That is because nothing is wrong with you. Ever.
Try this instead:
- When you’re feeling off, sit down in a quiet space with your feet flat on the floor.
- Imagine/ intend that you are sitting behind your eyes, in the center of your head.
- Envision a big tree trunk, beam of light, or waterfall between the base of your spine (first chakra) and the center of the earth. Let this be your drainpipe, to let go of any burdens you don’t need to be carrying.
That should help already. Now see if you can imagine a new question. Instead of “What’s wrong with me, ask, “What is going on with me right now?”
With your eyes closed, picture a rose about 1-2 feet in front of your forehead. Let this represent the answer to your question. Is the rose big, small? What color is it? Is it in good shape or frayed? Closed-in tight or overly scattered? A fresh new bud or a dying bloom? Is it thorny? Do you see dark spots? Do you see pictures of people you know, places you go, or images that mean anything to you? What do its colors, shapes and qualities mean to you?
Whatever you see, perhaps this will bring relief, clarity and insight to help you feel “on” again. Sometimes we just need to know what the situation is. Then, we know what is ours to do, & find permission to let go of all the problems we don’t actually have.
