C PTSD - A Way Out

Work on keeping the mind running slow, parasympathetic nervous system (brakes) engaged, using the breath as our focus.

We can let the body run, go real fast, and still have the mind calm, free, slow, empty.

If we can have the patience to let the mud settle, allowing the water to clear, answers may just arrive without cognition.

Many times now, as I let judgment go, as my bias faded, the solution became apparent.

Answers arrive when we can let go and empty the mind of thought, bias and judgment.

Trust that inner guide below the cognitive function of the ego.

Sit, focus on the breath, let go, empty the mind, then follow your inner guide for a change.

The aim of the few blogs is that you have lots of ideas and awareness so you can arrive serenely at the end of the year! Well prepared to re stock and re evaluate! Not a frazzled heap (as can be the case!)

I have talked about mindfulness before, its such a brilliant way to get some positive headspace. Its does not take as much of a commitment as meditation and there is even an app I can recommend! (Love an app!)

Why not try mindfulness this week?

https://www.headspace.com/
Great website that has lots of resources on how you can get started. The app is great (I use it everyday!)

It will soon become a positive habit! Surely you deserve 10 minutes…
