For the past several months I’ve been hearing from clients that they are exhausted. They aren’t feeling like they are motivated to do anything. All they want to do is get through the day and go to bed. One of the things they say is that their brains are feeling mucky and thick.
Could it be that summer had been pressing on everyone so much so that they cannot get enough rest when sleeping? Or it may be that the time change is afflicting everyone in a different way than usual. Maybe it could be that they are just deprived of oxygen. It may be they have something going on inside their bodies that is interrupting their sleep cycle. Maybe the stars and moon are misaligned?
Really it could be all of those things, but first and foremost if you are not getting enough rest while sleeping then your body will feel exhausted.
Our bodies need oxygen more than ever to counteract the imbalances of the electrical impulses that surround us. The brain deprived of oxygen creates a headache. It is just the same with the body. One of the first things in a sequence that can create crabbiness is the body is deficient of oxygen. It goes on from there that the body deprived of water, healthy live food, and rest will make it send excessive adrenaline into the system. Constant adrenaline running through the system is like an electrical charge that won’t stop.
Blood pressure rises due to constant adrenaline and can create the inability to get enough rest or even sleep. To get the blood pressure regulated, the body and brain must know or re-learn how to rest. Because most people live in flight or fight the body often forgets how to rest.
One of the best and simplest solutions I’ve discovered to remedy this is to utilize first your breath and second your hands and eyes. Through the rest of our eyes we can actually allow the entire body to respond to rest. If you will think of getting a massage and the therapist has placed a soft pillow over your eyes during the session this technique is similar.
Your breath is necessary to allow the release of negative energies, thoughts, programs, patterns and attitudes. With your lungs you are giving rest to your body and brain. With your breath into the lower abdomen, middle chest then upper chest and reverse you are resting your organs, which supply the needed balance to the brain.
Every night you need to realize that your energy has deposited on your bed. That energy you’ve deposited permeates the entire room and furniture of the room that you sleep in. When you clear out the energy from the previous night you are that much more able to sleep. One way I do this is to use my special clearing spray. This spray has brought many a good night’s sleep and rest to the body and the lungs ultimately bringing about rest to the entire physical body and restoring balance.
