Spiritual Relaxation: Is it the Secret code for Anxiety and Stress?
Posted Nov 20 2009 10:01pm
If I were to ask you, “How do you relax”, what will you tell me?
You may tell me that you relax when you go home and you are with your family.
Or when you go to the gym and work out.
Perhaps you may say that you relax when you go to Yoga classes.
The lists of WAYS you think you are relaxing goes on and on and on.
Interestingly enough, we are always going SOMEWHERE to find SOMETHING.
So what would happen if I told you to do one the following three things?
TAKE AWAY your special time with your family.
CANEL your gym membership.
You are not ALLOWED to practice yoga.
You get the picture.
Let’s look at your three possible responses to having these restrictions.
Physically, you will probably tighten up and stop breathing.
Mentally, your negative thoughts may become so profound that you will probably feel like screaming.
Emotionally, you may end up in the doctor’s office, and as a result, you’ll begin taking prescription drugs and/or resort to consuming excessive amounts of coffee as a way of dealing with your uncomfortable feelings.
OK, Spiritual relaxation to the rescue.
To me, spiritual relaxation means to be able to be in the moment and enjoy what is going on.
YOU do not need to go ANYWHERE to do ANYTHING.
Listen I’m not kidding around…
You don’t believe me?
I thought so.
Let me show you how dead serious I am…
After teaching this process for over 14 years, my students initially find this concept foreign, but soon they discovered that it is the most effective, natural way to relax.
So here’s what else is in store for you…
An introduction to a profound change in your consciousness.
Up until now, you have probably done it occassionally but here’s the most important part…
You do not have to wait until you go away on holiday. You’ll be glad to know you can start right now.
So remember, this process is very simple and you’re going to love it or not. It is called Spiritual Relaxation.
What is Spiritual Relaxation?
It is being in the moment and not having to go anywhere to relax. No longer do you have to wait until you go on vacation to relax or take a break.
Where ever you are is OK, at the moment. There is no need to have to go to the gym, to go to Yoga, to go home to be with the family.
We can relax right where we are.
You may wonder why you have been looking for anxety and stress relief but unable to find it.
Let’s face it, all you have to do is stop multitasking.
I am not kidding. You have been told that when you multitask you get more done. RIGHT.
SORRY, You have been misinformed.
This example of Spiritual Relaxation is going to surprise you.
The next time you have a cup of coffee, I want you to have it in a different location.
If you’re a business entrepreneur who works from home, I want you to have your coffee in another room in your house outside of your home office.
While you drink your coffee, please, do not read the paper, use your phone, watch TV or listen to the radio.
Just be with your coffee. It’s not as easy as it sounds.
That’s my example of spiritual relaxation.
