How to Meditate in Emergencies by Billie Topa Tate
Dear Busy Mystic,
It all begins with a our daily schedule… In addition to our daily projects we may encounter a crisis or stressful event that surprises us and takes us off our center.
Today, I will share with you a wonderful short burst change to integrate into our busy schedule. Stress slowly creeps up on us and we find ourselves emotionally stressed, and sometimes we encounter a crisis.
During these difficult times of stress we often forget self care practices. It is very important to find ways of using energetic techniques to intervene and provide opportunities for not only self care but wisdom filled practices. This will help our body and mind to stay in a more productive place and strive for happiness and peace.
Today you’ll find that these simple techniques will help you to be in a more productive and peaceful place when crisis occurs.
Just as a point of information – practicing meditation on a daily basis anchors and promotes a wisdom filled breath that helps us to be more present, wise and peaceful even under the most stressful conditions.
Here are some great techniques to use to quickly go into a more peaceful place during crisis, trauma and stressful activities.
1) The Panic Diffuser
One of the most simple and powerful techniques used by advanced meditation practitioners is known as the panic and or worry diffuser. This is also sometimes referred to as the thought and emotion stopping technique.
First, if you find that you’re going into panic during a crisis – do the following – sharply say to your mind “STOP”. Use a very loud internal voice so that your mind sees you mean business. If it’s possible and you are by yourself , say it out loud. After you say “STOP”. focus on your breath. Breathe in through your nose and then release the breath through the mouth ( this will relieve the tension ) relax your shoulders and then breathe in through your nose slowly as if you are at the ocean and as you exhale- exhale slowly through the mouth while relaxing your jaw, your shoulders, your neck and your spine. Continue the breath and now breathe in and out of your nose.
Once you have calm down and can think more productively, continue what you’re doing by moving calmly to tend to whatever needs to be done.
2) Heart Center Intervention
Your heart center has a vibration that will help you during the times of emergencies and crisis. This technique is simple and powerful and will help you even when you’re trying to get projects done.
Place your less predominate hand on the middle of your chest focusing on your heart if you like you can place both hands one on top of the other on the heart center. The next thing is allow for your breath to shift into the heart imagining healing light coming from your heart and emanating out from the chest into the entire body. Focus on the heart center like a sphere of light. Let it emanate out to the entire body as you do this allow for the breath to come in through your nose then exhale through your mouth a couple of times and then coming back to a few moments of syncing your breath with the rhythm of a peaceful soft slow beat of your heart. Inhaling and exhaling through your nose.
As you calm down invoke to have wisdom as you move forward to resolve whatever is in front of you
These are wonderful tools to help you during an emergency or crisis. Remaining calm and centered is the most important energy for any crisis or stressful situation.
An interesting point here is that police officers, nurses, paramedics and firefighters all prepare very well for a crisis so when a crisis comes they know what to do. This is very much like your meditation practice. If we meditate every day we will go into that sacred breath that will allow us to do what we need to do but not in a stressful way.
I wish you peace and that you follow the integrity of your divine light.
