I just love days when I feel absolute happiness and joy for no reason that is out of the ordinary.
Days where laughter at anything comes easily, where music is playing and I’m singing along, grooving as I go, where satisfaction is felt with life’s simple things.
Smiling is easy…
Have you ever felt fabulous but then come across that one person who is experiencing quite the opposite of great, and BAM! those negative emotions have such an impact on you that you find yourself slipping into the same stream of emotion?
Where did those joyful feelings go? How do you prevent the behaviour of another from affecting you?
This is an issue that very frequently arises with many people, particularly at this time of challenging confinement, and two resolutions can form the basis of management.
One is strengthening the solar plexus chakra, one of seven major energy centres on the body, and the other is recognising when you have absorbed the emotions of another and returning those emotions back to them.
The solar plexus chakra is your personal power source. Your warrior, your energy boundary setter, your personal strength. It is in the upper abdomen, the area above your waist and below your chest and is golden yellow in colour.
Focus and visualisation on your solar plexus chakra as you breathe slowly and deeply will cleanse, strengthen and expand the chakra, thus increasing your personal energetic boundaries. It will enable a strong conscious awareness of what is acceptable to you and what is not. This in itself will enable you to remain firm when you come into contact with negativity.
When you have a a awareness of what you will accept, recognising anything other will be second nature, and simply stating aloud or to yourself, ‘this is not mine, I return it back with infinite love and light’, will provide you with a basic tool to keep smiling and positive regardless of what is occurring around you.
Of course, in a kinesiology session, much more than this may be part of the solution, but these two remedies will set you on the path to remaining true to you.
So remember, let your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile 💜
