Everyone can benefit from learning methods of relaxation.
Almost half of all adults were raised in a
family with one or more of eight different abusive situations. A child growing up under any of these conditions often tries to bury these problems in the
subconscious. When these children grow up, they often have problems that are a result of past issues hidden in the subconscious.
The methods of relaxation and introspection examined on this site help people search within their subconscious and discover the root of their
unhappiness. The unconscious mind may hold the answer to the real problem, but most people rely instead on their conscious mind, unaware of its
limitations. To get answers, you must be able to understand and communicate with the "inner" you. Meditation, self-hypnosis, prayer and guided
imagery can all help you open the door to your subconscious.
Everyone has room for improvement in their life and
can benefit from learning methods of relaxation. Relaxation is the first step in self-hypnosis, meditation and guided imagery. Relaxing helps you
reduce stress and ultimately improve your health.
Experiment with the methods outlined on this site
and find the one that is right for you. Each one of us is unique, and we each require our own method(s) for success. Utilize what you gain from
the various techniques to create your own inner balance and harmony, and improve your life.
Breathing is the first step to many relaxation techniques.
1. Take a slow, deep breath for 3 seconds, and inhale through your nose. Allow the air to expand your stomach and chest.
Hold the air for another 3 seconds.
3. Slowly exhale through your mouth for 6 seconds. Begin again, paying attention to the rhythm.
Imagine the tension and stress flowing out of your body as you exhale. Tense a group of muscles, then release as you exhale. Or, you can simply lie
down or sit and imagine the stress escaping from your body.
