Relaxation

Practicing Relaxation

The Buddha proposed so many ways to practice to reduce the pain in your body and in your emotions, and to reconcile with yourself.

You can reduce physical pain through the practice of releasing tension in the body. Pain increases as a function of tension, and it can be reduced if we release the tension. You can practice relaxation in the lying or sitting position.

You can also practice relaxation when you walk, and with every step you can help release the tension. Walk like a free person. Put things down, don’t carry anything, and feel light. There is a burden we always carry with us.

The skill we need is how to lay down our burden in order to be light. If you sit, walk, or lie down like that, it’s very easy to release the tension and reduce the pain.

– Thich Nhat Hanh

Take Time To Rest

When we are sick, we stay in bed and do nothing. Often we don’t even eat or drink. All of our energy is directed toward healing. We need to practice resting even when we are not sick. Sitting meditation, walking meditation, and mindful eating are good opportunities for resting. When you feel agitated, if you are able to go to a park or a garden, it is an opportunity for rest. If you walk slowly and remember to take it easy, if you are able to sit and do nothing from time to time, you can rest deeply and enter a state of true ease.
– Thich Nhat Hanh

A higher level of personal congruency can be realised when we are able to listen to our deeper truth. You may find the answers to many ongoing personal problems and issues, if you simply take the time to ask your inner self for a new direction.

This session is suitable for repeated listening. The end of this track will not wake you, as you will be guided with positive suggestions into a deeply relaxing, bedtime sleep.

It’s Totally Up To You

I deserve to be,
I want to be,
I can be,
I will be,
I am.

If you want to change your life you need to change how you think and change what you do. Self-help, personal change, being happy: it’s up to you. No-one else.

You decide. This is the first step. Self-help starts with you. Self-help and personal change starts with your realization that it really is in your own hands, and your decision to do something about it.

Your own self-belief is the key to successful life-change, achievement, contentment, and happiness.

Your own mind, particularly positive suggestion and visualization, will develop your self-belief, and your determination to make successful change to your life.

This exercise will help you begin to change the way you think, feel and act.

Use it any time you want to boost your self-belief, to relax, and to regain control of your life and direction.

Print this page and put it above your mirror, above your bed, above your desk, anywhere you’ll see it every day.

Make time – actually schedule some time in your planner or diary to do this. It will dramatically improve your mood, attitude, and approach to life, and therefore what you get from life.

Positive suggestion and visualization, combined with deep relaxation, is an easy way to make powerful positive personal change.

Just going through this relaxation exercise alone will help to change and improve the way you feel. If you combine the relaxation techniques with a repeated script of positive statements, such as the ‘I am’ script below, you will begin change the way you think, and feel, and act, and all that life offers as a result.

The more you use the relaxation exercise and say or hear the script, then the greater and more sustainable will be the effect.

The time it takes to change depends on different people. Stick with it and it will become easier, more natural, more enjoyable, and it will work.

The Relaxation Exercise

Some people find it easier than others to relax deeply. It comes with practice.

If you find it difficult, allow yourself more time when going through the relaxation exercise. Create or put yourself into a quiet relaxing calm environment. Shut out noise and distractions. Lie down rather than sit.

When relaxing and emptying your mind it is natural for thoughts to arise – in which case simply acknowledge them gently and let them go – visualize them floating away like a balloon into the distance. Your ability to empty your mind and relax, free from thoughts, will improve with practice.

When you practice, you will increase the ease with which you can relax, and then you will find that you no longer need such a quiet environment. You will even find that you can achieve a deeply relaxed state in quite noisy stressful environments. Even sitting at your desk at work.

  • Sit or lie down comfortably. Properly comfortably.
  • Straighten your back, put your shoulders back to open your rib-cage.
  • Relax your shoulder muscles particularly.
  • Relax your whole body, and empty your mind.
  • Close your eyes (obviously open them when you need to read the next stage).
  • Take ten deep, slow breaths. Breathe from the pit of your stomach and feel your lungs filling.
  • Focus on your breathing.
  • Feel it getting deeper and slower.
  • Feel yourself relaxing and any tension drifting away.
  • Relax your shoulders and neck again.
  • Visualize yourself being happy, succeeding, winning, being loved, laughing, feeling good.
  • Relax your forehead, your mouth and your eyes.
  • Allow a gentle smile to appear on your face as you feel a calmness enter your mind.
  • Then say (out loud ideally) the words below (a script for personal change) to yourself.

The Script:

The use of scripts while in a deeply relaxed state is a ages-old method of gaining and maintaining control over our personal feelings and behaviors.

Relaxation combined with positive ‘self-talk’ enables self-help.

The use of scripts or strong statements while in a deeply relaxed state enables a ‘conditioning’ effect on our subconscious.

Changing our subconscious – our feelings and beliefs – increases our sense of calm and well-being, and also enables change in our conscious thoughts and behaviors. It’s that simple.

Here’s an example of a script. Feel free to rewrite or change it in any way that feels right for you. Your own personal script can be long or short, the only requirements are that it reflects positive statements that feel good when you think about them:

  • I am
  • I am good person.
  • I have integrity.
  • I do what is ethically right and good.
  • Whatever life puts before me will be useful experience that will make me stronger, wiser, and more tolerant.
  • I am strong enough to understand and make allowances for other people’s weaknesses, and their behavior towards me. Other people’s behavior is about them, not me.
  • I focus on the joy of living my life and helping others where and when I can.
  • I am what I eat and drink, so I eat and drink good things.
  • I am what I watch and play and listen, so I watch and play and listen to good positive things.
  • I take exercise which I enjoy. I walk when I don’t need to drive or take the bus or train.
  • I smile and laugh whenever I can – life is good – getting caught in the rain reminds me that it is good to be alive to feel it.
  • I forgive other people. Deep down everyone is a good person, just like me.
  • I am a compassionate and loving, caring person.
  • I am a good person.
  • I am.

Notes:

Most ordinary good, honest ‘being’ people are fooled into believing that what they have is not worth anything. Don’t be fooled.

The answer to happiness and fulfillment is usually found in achieving a simple acceptance of, and joy of living, a good life.

Enjoy ‘being’ and living a good life.

Next time you get caught in the rain, or bump the car, or get a headache – enjoy being alive to feel it and experience it.

Relax Into the Moment

You might be surprised how often we’re resisting life.

If you assess your body right now, I bet you can find some kind of tension or tightness. For me, it’s often in my chest, but sometimes it’s in my jaw, face, neck or shoulders.

Where does this tightness come from? We’re struggling against something — perhaps we’re irritated by someone, frustrated by something, stressed or overwhelmed by all we have to do, or just don’t like whatever it is we’re faced with. This causes a resistance, a hardening or tightening. Everyone does it, most of the day.

It’s normal, but it causes unhappiness, an aversion to the present moment, struggles with other people or ourselves, struggles with the task we’re faced with. What I’ve found useful is the idea of relaxing into the moment.

Try this:

  • Notice where the tension is in your body right now.
  • Notice what you’re tightening against — it might be someone else, or whatever it is you’re faced with.
  • Relax the tightness. Just let yourself melt.
  • Face the same situation, but with a relaxed, friendly attitude.

And repeat as often as you can remember, throughout the day. Just use the phrase “relax into the moment” to remind yourself.

What this does is helps us to face the day with less tension and greater contentment. We struggle less with how other people are, and instead might open our hearts to them and see that they, like us, are struggling and want to be happy.

We might face a task with less resistance, and instead do it with a smile. We might just notice the physical space around us and start to appreciate it for the unique gift that it is. And in the end, we’re changing our mode of being from one of struggle and resistance to one of peace and gratitude.

Life is like a sandwich!


Birth as one slice, and death as the other. What you put in-between the slices is up to you.


Is your sandwich tasty or sour?
