Many people ask me how do I stay so calm when there is so much chaos in the world. I always answer them 'I breathe!' The truth is, there is quite a bit to be unsettled about, quite a bit to be scared about, quite a bit to be fearful about, if we choose to believe that this is the only way, and if we choose to believe that it's an inevitable, natural human response.
I have found the power of Mindfulness; whether that be practising Mindfulness when we are out walking, when we are eating our meals, when sitting down after a busy day, or when doing my Qi Cultivation exercises and it works! Mindfulness is essentially the ability to cultivate 'present' living with kindness, compassion, gratitude, and curiosity in order to maintain a harmonious and more balanced way of relating to yourselves, others and the world. It can nurture self-acceptance, self-awareness and resilience as we become more observant of our inner world to eliminate suffering and stress. There are many traditional Mindful practices originating from ancient Egypt which shows that the ancient peoples knew the science of breathwork and meditation, and embedded these practices into their daily life. So how can they be on benefit in 2022 onwards!
Many of my clients have found the guided one-to-one Mindfulness Coaching or the short online courses invaluable, in allowing them to develop and nurture a deep sense of peace, inner calm, which increased their capacity to live in the present. This has resulted in reports of reduced symptomatic pain, lowered blood pressure, fewer panic attacks and anxiety to name just a few.
