Are you in overwhelm?

Our thoughts create vibrations that resonate with emotions, which manifest into a reality that we call life experience or physicality.

by Jolin Brandes — 

The world is changing so quickly that we can get thrown into reactionary states over the smallest things. Someone says something just the wrong way, and we feel our emotions getting triggered.

As the sun produces larger and larger solar flares, its intense rays of light pass through us. This unearths many old thoughts and emotions that we have stored in our energetic fields for lifetimes. This happens so that we can release the old baggage that no longer serves us.

We may have frequent thoughts such as: I am not good enough; I am not loved unless I do what I am told; I feel left out; why am I not being respected or listened to? There is so much to do, how can I get it all done? Most of us have felt this way at one time or another, and as a result, we may start to react or shut down.

Do you know that when you have those thoughts and then wrap the emotions of anger, frustration, fear, jealousy, guilt, shame, sadness and/or depression around them, you just attract more of the same? Thoughts are electric, and emotions are magnetic.

When you think a thought and put the emotion around it, you are going to attract that kind of experience. And as it gets more intense, you may be feeling as if you will explode emotionally. You will also feel it physically. Our thoughts create vibrations that resonate with emotions, which manifest into a reality that we call life experience or physicality. This is a scientific fact.

The following is a very simple yet powerful game changer to help you in your everyday life and some support to help shift this “stuff” that gets us upset and feeling down — a technique to assist with any emotional overwhelm.

The Vortex Qigong Technique

First, put all eight fingertips and two thumb tips together — left-hand fingertips and thumb touching the right-hand fingertips and thumb. Now bring your index fingertips down, touching the thumb tips, making a bow in front of your face. The other six fingertips are standing straight up. Go ahead and put those fingertips together. Now ask yourself on a scale from 1 to 10 — 10 being the highest, over-the-top state of overwhelm — where are you? A number will pop into your head.

Sit there, and just feel and think about a situation that is causing you to be upset as you hold these finger positions. Stay with the feelings and go fully into the upset, whether it is big or small. So often we try to ignore our feelings. This time stay with your feelings and get into them. Ever hear the saying, “The only way through it is to let yourself feel it”? Do this for a few minutes until you feel energy building between your hands. Then open the two little fingers and let the energy drain (like water pours out from a teapot) until you feel a shift in your thought process.

Now, open up your fingers and thumbs away from your body to release that energy. Sit for a few minutes and ask yourself: “On a scale from 1 to 10, how does that situation feel?” Chances are you may have gone from a 7 or 8 to a 2 or 3. In a few minutes more, you may not have any energy about those feelings at all. They have left your mind, your body and your energy field, and you are now able to choose a different way of being and let some happy thoughts in. You will have more happy and peaceful thoughts because these thoughts and feelings will attract more of the same.

I hope this simple qigong technique will help you. We all deserve gifts to help us on our journeys. You need to feel the power of qigong for yourself. Remember there are more qigong techniques to help you with many other issues.
