If you have been put off meditation in the past, I would prefer you read the following with an open mind. In fact, I would prefer you to think of the following technique as a stress relief strategy. Meditation isn’t just about slowing the brainwaves, it is conclusively proven to boost your energy and vitality significantly. Hormones re-balance, mood improves and relationships improve. Whilst quietening the mind for a few minutes each day, you will be able to look back at the cumulative benefits in surprising ways. Occasionally a moment of bliss, an inspiration or a higher state of consciousness becomes available to you. Higher states of consciousness simply feel like freedom…freedom from the mind’s usual identity, nagging fears and concerns.
Tip 1. Releasing negative emotions: Deep relaxation is possible for everyone. Become aware of any uncomfortable feelings in your body. Sit calmly with them in a state of acceptance as you allow them to release. All emotions that feel uncomfortable are caused by disruptions in your energy system that you have the power to release. If you just sit still with an intention to allow the emotion to pass… it will.
Tip 2. Yoga Breath: Take Three conscious breaths. Allow yourself to focus on your breath and just notice inhaling and exhaling through the nose. Inhale…pause and exhale. For the first three breaths, push your breath all the way out. The breath out stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system to rest and relax.
Tip 3. Taoist Meditation Technique: This is a fun Taoist technique that I personally use a lot. Direct your focus back into the centre of your brain as if looking out through that space between your eyebrows. Imagine you are a little Buddha sitting crossed-legged on a bed of cushions in the centre of your brain behind your eyebrows. This stimulates the pineal gland, responsible for higher states of conscious. If thoughts intrude, repeat a mantra such as ‘release and let go’.
The body can only take so much tension and stress before the body gives you a warning. There are now hundreds of scientifically documented benefits, too numerous to mention here, that recommend meditation to support and maintain vibrant health and wellbeing.
Testimony from David Lynch: “It has given me effortless access to unlimited reserves of energy, creativity and happiness deep within. This level of life is sometimes called “pure consciousness” And this level is deep within us all.”

BREATH IN CALM AND BREATH OUT WITH A SMILE
Mindfulness Therapy contains many NLP principles that enable us to step outside of our current thinking habits.
Don’t be fooled by how simplistic mindfulness appears to be. A truly ‘mindful mind’ has discovered how to become master of these pesky negative thoughts!
Mindfulness can help to manage anxiety and in time, even create the potential of Practice this mindfulness exercise whenever you remember throughout the day & evening for 21 days and notice the change within your body and mind.
Anxiety arises from a healthy amygdala in your brain scouting for danger in order to keep you safe. If we don’t learn how to manage this natural tendency, Unfortunately any underlying fear based belief will fuel anxiety and keep it limiting your quality of life.
Beliefs such as ‘The world is a dangerous place’, or ‘people are not safe’ or ‘I have to always be on guard’ or ‘I’m afraid of humiliation’, ‘looking stupid’ will fuel anxiety and limit a fun-free healthy, happy YOU.
Apart from replacing old beliefs with new empowering beliefs, there are other ways to override the brain’s natural tendency to be negative.
THE MAGIC IN A SMILE Learn what happens when you smile and why smiling causes happiness. Apart from relaxing the facial muscles and calming the nervous system, smiling releases neuropeptides (tiny molecules) that allow neurons to communicate. They facilitate messaging to the whole body and when you smile, the feel good neurotransmitters dopamine, endorphins and serotonin are all released. This not only relaxes and calms your entire body, but can lower your heart rate and blood pressure. Endorphins also act as a natural pain reliever – 100% organically without potential side effects. The more you smile the more effective you are at breaking the brain’s natural tendency to think negatively. If you smile often enough, you end up rewiring your brain to make positive patterns more often than negative ones.
LETTING GO OF ATTACHMENTS & OUTCOMES – This includes: PEOPLE, PLACES, THINGS, LIFE, FEARS, THE FAMILIAR, PAST, EXPECTATIONS… Yes easier said then done. Imagine for a moment, if there was a land slide and you found yourself falling off a cliff with rocks. You attempt to cling onto any great lump of rock that is travelling alongside you. You are clinging to it for dear life, thinking – ‘I’ve got to hold onto this’. Well it doesn’t do a thing for you and it’s only making you more anxious and it is only when you realise this, you let go and relax.
Everybody is heading for death, yet we are ALL clinging to things in the hope that we will be safe. And even though everything is moving, shifting and changing, we attach ourself to things and name all sorts of reasons and responsibilities – wearing ourselves out gripping onto that rock.
So the wise thing to do is simply let go and relax.

Unlock Your Potential
Anxiety is a fear based habit that blocks your potential. If you long for a calm, confident mindset you will want to make peace with any or all of the following (in no specific order):
Top 10 Fears that block success
- Health anxiety (fear of death/pain/immobility).
- Fear of failure, making a serious mistake.
- Fearing loss or rejection.
- Fearing embarrassment, looking or feeling stupid.
- Fearing being judged with dislike or disapproval.
- Fearing not being enough, lovable or deserving.
- Fearing being different and being found out.
- Fearing disappointment.
- Fear of the unknown, uncertainty.
- Fearing being out of control.
Everyone can create new habits that support them. Anxiety is a destructive habit that becomes a vicious cycle, but luckily habits can be changed. Everyone can choose an open mind with fresh perspectives that inspire confident, calm success.

1. Find a new hobby that includes exercise. Search for some form of exercise that you look forward to. Experiment until you find a few things that you enjoy. My personal favourites are: Dancing, Classes in Body Balance, Yoga, Body Pump. Swimming, cycling, badminton, playing outdoor games with kids: football, trampoline, shuttle ball.
2. Choose foods that feel energising. Before you choose something, stop, pause consider…. tune into your intuition….
3. Stop obsessing about food and find a new focus to absorb you.
4. Cut back on ‘mindless’ eating by choosing to only eat whilst sitting down in a relaxed setting. Savour your food by appreciating the taste, texture, smell, touch and experience.
5. Eating a little of what you fancy might work for you. Just keep in mind ‘processed’ sugary or fatty foods are going to drain your energy. Remember in Tip 2 – Think BEFORE you eat – “is this going to energise me?” Little and often is preferable to huge meals that crash your energy.
6. Every time you give into a habit you are making it stronger. Ask the question:” is this food helping me to create positive habits?” If the answer is no – ask yourself, “do I really need this?”
7. Get creative. Experiment with one brand new recipe each week, have fun with your food. Include a little protein with each meal to stop your sugar levels, energy and moods crashing. I create 3 new recipes each week by receiving a box of salad ingredients with recipes from Abel & Co.
8. Stop eating when 3/4 full. Get comfortable with leaving food on your plate.
9. As a guide, aim to eat 2-3 balanced meals with 2 smaller protein or fruit snacks. Make those meals more delicious by savouring each mouthful, deliberately and with complete mindfulness.
10. TV with adverts contain commercials that persuade you to eat junk and it is hypnotising you. Advertisers know this, that is why they spend millions on adverts during peak viewing. Instead spend the evening with something or someone you love – your family, pet, hobby, exercise, a good film (free from adverts) a new project, course or an uplifting book…with healthy happy feelings. Take a look at my new book: 9 Simple Steps for Happiness, with quotes, quick tips and easy fun processes that help you to be a Healthier, Happier You!
11. Prepare for sleep: Keep a Journal to log your progress: 1. Get on paper anything you are anxious about in order to clear your mind. 2. Write three things you wish to achieve the following day. 3. Write 3 things you appreciate about you, your partner, each child, parent and anyone who is upsetting you. This will have the effect of percolating over night with a more positive feeling.
12. Listen to a relaxation meditation as you drift off to sleep to soothe you into deep peaceful blissful sleep. I record bespoke hypnosis for many clients to aid sleep and deep relaxation.

Hormonal Imbalances: Do you snap or shout at your loved ones? Do you wage war or erupt like a volcano more often than you’d prefer?
Mood swings: If your moods ignite with gusto, it could be that pushed down emotions such as anger, guilt or shame are the ‘hidden’ cause. Fatigue, time pressures are also stressors that increase the likelihood of these outbusts.
Break the cycle of food cravings, too much sugar and stress
Food cravings Cortisol is released in response to stress triggers. A craving for sugar creates a cycle that eventually fatigues the adrenals with more mood swings.
Too much sugar causes blood sugar level fluctuations that crash energy casing further food cravings.
Too much stress creates cortisol, with any excess of this hormone being converted to sugar. At this point, weight gain, skin and digestive sensitivities may arise. Further stress causes food cravings and fatigue … so the cycle of hormonal imbalance continues….
Solution With a willingness to change, you can break free from stressful behaviours.

What is anxiety?
Anxiety is an uncomfortable worrying feeling of doubt and fear that most of us experience at some point in our lives. But what if you have this nagging feeling all the time…simmering away in the background…What can be done? If you have an anxiety habit of expecting or fearing the worst, the good news is habits can be changed.
Anxiety can arise from the decisions and beliefs created during times that you felt fearfull or vulnerable, isolated or helpless. Hypnotherapy can be very helpful to remove anxiety. For more information on anxiety, take a look on the anxiety page of my website:
