It might surprise you to know that Relaxation is the absolute #1 Key to unlocking your brilliance.
Relax? You might say. How can I? There’s too much to do!
I frequently hear this from my clients. This sense that it’s not okay to relax when so much is going on. A sense of overwhelm that feels like being stuck and spinning out of control all at the same time. A sense that taking time to relax might just make everything fall apart.
Stuck and spinning, and not enough time or energy to relax.
But it’s relaxation which will help you get unstuck and stop spinning on the hamster wheel of stress.
It’s simple. Stress increases the stress hormone cortisol. This increase in cortisol triggers blood loss from the thinking part of your brain. In other words, when you’re stressed, your brain is far less effective. Lower efficiency drains your time and energy, and helps create a sense of overwhelm.
Relaxation helps to reduce cortisol, and bring blood back to the thinking part of your brain. When you’re relaxed, your brain is more efficient. And, when you’re relaxed, you are open to fresh new ideas.
EFT Tapping is one of the most powerful techniques for reducing cortisol, and helping you relax. Simply tapping on the karate chop point, while breathing deeply, will help in a stressful situation.
It’s this place of peace and relaxation that will help you open to your true brilliance. Your brilliance is there, underneath all the stress and anxiety. It’s been there all along.
Keep a few techniques ‘handy’ to use whenever you need to relax. In addition to EFT, deep breathing, yoga, walking, and the heart breath are all powerful ways to help yourself relax. Click here to download a Heart Breath Audio.
