Yesterday, after spending the day in computer meetings, I noticed how low my energy was, as well as my mood. Yet when it came time to go to bed, I found myself aimlessly scrolling on my phone.
Today I taught a virtual Self-Breema class. I saw how, over the course of the class, my energy began to increase. Even though the class was online, my focus was inward, and not out at the screen. As I tapped on my legs as part of the exercise, I experienced the vitalizing effect of receiving Breema. This deepened when I worked with relaxing my hands and brought in the principle of No Hurry/No Pause.
Later, in the clinic, one of my clients was running late. When I asked her why, she said she had gotten lost in her computer work and forgot the time. As the session began, we both were amazed at how quickly the haze of the day slipped away, and a natural vitality returned to the body. Fear and anxiety were replaced by the confidence that there was something immediate and direct we could do to increase balance and harmony.
