Dissolve Doubt with this 1-min Practice

Nov 28, 2022

Today I want to share a simple yet powerful practice with you.  If you are dissolving into doubtful trains of thought about what lies ahead this week with your business, work, relationships, home, purpose, etc. then take one minute and do this practice with me. 

This is one of my favorite practices when I don't know which way to turn, feel overwhelmed or feel ungrounded.  

Please don't just read this practice and say to yourself, "I'll do it later".  Follow the simple steps below and do the practice now.  Do it for your now self.  Do it for your future self.  Do it because it will make you feel better.  Do it to grow your capacity to live more resiliently and more joyfully.  Choose a reason and follow the prompts below.

THE PRACTICE:

During this practice you are going to open your solar plexus, which is a central point in your body and also a source of power and presence.  Connecting to and opening this space will help you ground, clear your mind and hear the answers within more clearly.

Step One:  Locate Your Solar Plexus

To locate your solar plexus, follow your bottom ribs with your fingers - from your waist to the center of your chest, where your bottom ribs meet.

Rest your left hand there, on your solar plexus.  Keep your right hand on your right thigh for now.

Close your eyes and take a deep breathe in and out.

Step Two:  Get Curious

Ask yourself:

  1. How can I be there for myself?
  2. What do I need?

Step Three:  Breathe and Listen

Breathe and connect to this central source of power in your body. 

Breathe your solar plexus open.  

Listen to the answers that come.

Ask yourself:

  1. When a thought comes to mind, does this central space in my body (my solar plexus) close or open in conjunction with that thought?
  2. What does that closing or opening mean to me?

Step Four:  Right Hand to Left Hand

Place your right hand on top of your left.

Continue to connect to your solar plexus and listen to the answers that come.

Take 3 deep breaths.

Release your hands down to your thighs, palms facings up.

WHEN TO DO THIS PRACTICE:

Anytime.  You can do this seated, standing, in conversation, in line, when you are unsure of what to do next or are feeling ungrounded and scattered.  Just simply place your hands on your solar plexus and open that space with confidence, clarity and power.  Every answer you need is right beneath your fingertips.  Breathe, open and receive.

Please Note:  The power that you are accessing here is not power over anyone.  You are cultivating power to be present for yourself and everyone near you will benefit from this presence.

Happy Monday!
