Quieting My Monkey Brain

I was talking with a client this morning about ways to help get her through her next two weeks of activities and stress.  You may be familiar with this problem: you have a list of a million things to do, some that you are dreading, fearful you will let something slip through the cracks.  You think you are keeping it under control by reviewing the list over and over in your head.  Maybe it’s all written down, but that still doesn’t stop you from mentally keeping a tally of what’s on the list, what’s done and what’s left, when you’ll do it, etc.  Each time you cross something off the list you hope for that feeling of relief, but you never quite relax.  Probably because you keep adding to your list!  If you have any control freak tendencies you may also feel compelled to get it all done yourself!

When I review my clients’ Energetic Footprints™ I can always tell who has this tendency because they have an active Third Eye (Energy Center/chakra responsible for intuition, reasoning, intellect, analysis, vision) and an inactive or blocked Root (EC/chakra responsible for stability, security, being in the moment).  Even if you have never seen your Energetic Footprint™, have no idea what a chakra is, you can surely relate to feeling distracted, frazzled, overwhelmed and disconnected at least once in a while.

The biggest problem with Monkey Brain is that it keeps you from manifesting your goals and desires.  As long as you’re living in your head it’s difficult to bring all of your ideas and plans to life.  You get so focused on crossing items off your list that you end up forcing things and making mistakes, bringing about the inevitable melt down.

So, how do you quiet your Monkey Brain?  You Ground Your Energy.  This process takes seconds and can be done anywhere, anytime.  This exercise is used by many energy practitioners.  I have no idea where it originated.

From a standing position (preferably in bare feet), close your eyes, take a deep breath in (through your nose).  As you exhale picture a cord dropping from your tailbone straight down to the center of the earth.  At the center, picture a great big magnet.  That magnet is pulling your cord and holding it tight.  If you’re still not feeling fully connected, imagine your legs as tree trunks with your feet as the roots.  The roots are growing deep under the ground and they are travelling all the way into the center of the earth.  As you continue to inhale and exhale push your breath down your spine and through the cord all the way down.  Gently sway from side to side and feel how steady you are and how deeply connected you are to the earth beneath you.
