Allowing Yourself to Feel Emotions
Recurring negative thoughts are a problem when you believe they are true. If you are aware of your negative thoughts and don’t believe them, they will not cause any problems.
Fear is usually the trigger of our negative emotions. Remind ourselves fear is based on the past or future, so it helps to become more consciously aware of our present state of mind.
Engaging with the sensations in your body helps you to rest, embrace, release and heal. Acknowledge where you feel the discomfort and breathe deeply to release this tension. Allow the feelings to come and go and use your breathe to anchor yourself back to the present moment.
There’s no right way or wrong way to meditate. What matters is that meditation helps you reduce your stress, and feel better overall.
I use mindfulness techniques in most coaching sessions, helping people to meditate confidently.
