Homework and links for while you are working with Angie:
Try to do these 2 practices daily.
Ideally, meditate daily for at least the period in which we work together, and preferably for the rest of your life.
Mindfulness practice (checking in without judgment) is possibly even more important them meditation, so do this 100 times a day for at least the period we are working together to create a habit of the mind of awareness. AWARENESS is KEY to everything we are doing together.
This is a therapy we have available here at Cloud 9, there is currently a huge amount of research being done that is proving it to be extremely useful for Stress, depression, anxiety, PTSD and Sleep issues. It is also a brilliant tool as a supplement to your personal development, in that is puts you in a state that allows for new connections in the brain. So if you are suffering from these, consider buying a float contract or membership and try to float once a week, at least for the time we are working together.
Other great homework practices for the dedicated:
There are various other things you can do for yourself as we work together, choose what inspires you and make use of whatever you want. They are not obligatory, and they are not necessary for us to succeed together, but they can be very useful and powerful on your journey.
Guided visualization/sleep meditation/hypnotic inductions.
These are very powerful, and there are loads available on You Tube. They can be ripped to MP3 and you can play them as you go to sleep at night. Not only will you sleep brilliantly, but they are hard at work for you while you do.
I am particularly fond of Dauchsy meditations. Choose a couple that cover what we are working on for you and see what happens
Gratuity diary/ power diary
This is a brilliant tool, that helps you to shift your attention away from all you have been focusing on that you think is “bad” about you, and onto noticing what is “good about you/your life.
For the power diary, each night, write down at least 3 things that you noticed about yourself that day, that you can approve of or appreciate about yourself. We are not looking for big things, tiny little things are just fine.
“I was kind/thoughtful to someone today”
“ I got out of bed even though I would have loved to say with the duvet over my head”
“I did a good job with something”
“I was kind to myself today”
“I did something that scared me”
“I rose to a challenge”
“I did good work today”
Look for the small things, and write them down, this forces the brain to start paying attention to the other dimension of who you are.
Take your medicine
This can be very powerful for some people.
Take a glass of water, and send it love in your mind. (Think of a beloved pet or something that is easy to have gentle loving feelings toward). After a couple of min, drink it with the attitude of taking that love as medicine into your own body.
Take a look at yourself in the mirror and say to yourself something like
“ I love you” or if that feels wrong “ I am willing to love you” or “I am learning to love you”, or “I am working on loving you” Whatever feels possible. See what happens after a couple of months, and pay attention to how is starts to feel easier to do as we work together.
This is a therapy we have available here at Cloud 9, there is currently a huge amount of research being done that is proving it to be extremely useful for Stress, depression and anxiety specifically, so if you are suffering from these, consider buying a float contract or membership and try to float at least once a week, at least for the time we are working together.
If you have just started with Angela, you are staring to learn about how thought works to create a felt experience. This Ted talk is for the scientifically minded, the questioners that want a deeper understanding of the process in terms of neurology.
