The Beginner’s Exercise

This exercise is designed especially for those who are just starting. The aim of it is to introduce you to the feeling of your power. The physical sensation you feel in this exercise is how the energy of your power feels while you’re tuned in. At first, you’ll find you can only hold it for a short time – only because you’re not used to it yet. But as you practice it, you’ll find that each time you go through this exercise, you’re able to stay tuned in to the feeling for longer and longer. And the more you practice, the easier it’ll get, the more comfortable you’ll feel physically, and the more powerful the energy will become. Remember, this is a skill you’re learning. The power is inside you, you’re using these exercises to develop your ability to use it effectively.

  1.  Take a moment to think of someone you already feel compassion for. Remember, this is not pity or sympathy, it’s a feeling of warmth and caring. It could be a loved-one, a child or a pet. Imagine holding that person or animal in your arms, in an hug. Take note of what’s happening in your body – notice the physical feeling in your chest.
  2. Imagine that feeling as a light or energy, and imagine it spreading down to your toes, and up to the top of your head.
  3. Now imagine that energy, that light, overflowing from you, spilling out and filling the whole room.

 

Superpower Exercise

This is the next step. In the Beginner’s Exercise, you learned to recognise how your power feels when you’re tuned in. In this exercise, you’ll be (gently 😉 ) introduced to the unconditional bit of the power. It’s the unconditional part of your power that has the potency, so this exercise is vital to developing your ability to use your power effectively. Practice it daily, at least once a day, but since it takes very little time, you might find you can fit it in more than once. Just like any skill, the more you practice the faster you’ll master it.

  1. Go through steps one and two of the Beginners’ Exercise.
  2. Now imagine that light or energy is filling all the cells in your body. There are around 50 trillion cells in your body, each one with a consciousness, and each one doing its best to serve the whole – you. Fill each of those cells with that love energy.
  3. Think of the person or animal you used in the Beginners’ Exercise, and fill them with that energy and light.
  4. Now, imagine they don’t love you back, and try to keep that feeling going. Imagine they’ll never love you, and love them anyway.

Practice to see how long you can keep that feeling (the physical sensation) going even when you think of that person or animal not loving you back. This can be difficult at first, and you may even find you can’t keep it going at all in the presence of a feeling of rejection. But, just go back to the beginning of the exercise and start again – and each time you do it, you’ll find it’ll get easier.   Think of learning any skill – if you were learning to ride a bicycle, you would, in the beginning, keep falling over. Each time you can’t manage to hold the feeling of love when thinking of the person or animal rejecting you, you’ve overbalanced on the bike. Going back to the beginning and starting the exercise again is like getting back on the bike, and trying again.   Keep doing it until you’re able to “ride” as far as you like, without falling over – until you’re able to stay tuned in to that feeling of love for as long as you want to, even in the presence of rejection. :)

 

Self-Love Exercise

  1. Notice the little good things around you, and recognise them as expressions of love from yourself, to yourself. You create and attract everything in your life, which means that everything that makes you feel good, everything you like, everything that is convenient – you created and attracted for yourself.
  2. When you notice these things and recognise them as expressions of love from yourself, to yourself, say to yourself “Look how much I love myself”

This will start unblocking your love for yourself.   Note: What about the “bad” stuff you’ve created and attracted? That is simply the result of blocking self-love. And as you begin to acknowledge the expressions of love from yourself, to yourself, you’ll find the bad stuff reduces. And anything that appears to be bad will turn out to be either good, or nothing to worry about.   Here are a few examples of expressions of love to notice:

  • A sunny day
  • A smile from a stranger
  • A convenient parking place
  • Seeing beautiful flowers when you’re out and about
  • Beautiful blossoms on trees
  • Seeing cute animals
  • A call from a friend
  • A Facebook post or YouTube video that makes you laugh
  • Electricity and fresh, running water
  • TV and computer, and other technology

And there are so many more, of course  😉

 

The Inner Hug

  1. Take a moment to imagine giving someone you love a tight, warm hug. Take notice of the feeling in your chest.
  2. Now, imagine you’re giving that hug to yourself, and aim for that same feeling in your chest.

Use this throughout your day, whenever you think of it, and especially when you’re feeling worried, anxious, nervous, shy, frustrated, angry, hurt… or any other negative emotion. Remember, with all of these exercises, the effect is more than just mental and emotional. When you do these, you are changing, not only the frequency at which you are vibrating, but also your chemistry! You brain will be releasing “feel-good” hormones while you’re in these states. And, on top of that, while you are in these states, you will make different choices and decisions, you’ll give a different impression to others as your body language, gestures, tone of voice and the way you react are all affected by your state. So, these exercises and techniques are effective on many levels! :)

 

The Non-Judgement Day Game

It’s amazing how much more judgemental and critical we are, than we realise. Once you start becoming aware of it, you’ll surprise yourself! This is a fun game that has the ability to transform your life, all on its own! The idea is to keep playing it, in order to increase your time score. It’s great fun to play with a friend. When I first created this game, I invited my sister to join me, and we found it great fun, coming up with the phrase “Not that I’m judging!” – which really helped to draw our attention to just how often we criticised, and how automatic that pattern of being judgemental really is.

 

How to Play:

1. Write down the time.

2. See how long you can last without judging or criticising anything or anyone – and remember, that includes yourself! 😉

3. When you do catch yourself judging or criticising and you’re unable to correct that thought, write down the time. That’s your score.

4. Start again, and try to increase your score every time you do it.

You will see your score increase, perhaps not on the same day, but if you choose to practice this exercise for just one week, you will notice a remarkable difference as you go through the week, and of course, that will have a powerful impact on your life in all areas! :)
