Manifesting Comfort

Feeling GOOD!

We all want to feel good! Each and every one of us has a different way to go about it though. You have to find what works best for you and your whole, well being. You have the power to control your mood as well as your attitude.

I am not saying we are going to have sunshiney days and live on cloud nine every day, but you can come pretty close if you choose how you want to feel.

Love Comfort

How do you spread more love to yourself as well as to others? Finding that natural balance and rhythm of giving and receiving. Communicating and connecting to yourself and others. Engaging your heart as well as your mind when it comes to love sweet love!

Love is such a guiding force in living one’s life! To share and celebrate more of what you love or what you have done. It is energizing and helps give you clarity in your purpose. It is elevating and helps give you inspiration to define your “whys” in what you need to get out there to live life! 

You are the one that makes great things happen!

Music Comfort

Do you sing a little ditty in your head to make you happy? You know what resonates within you to connect to yourself on a deeper level. Especially when we need comfort, pleasure, happiness, etc. Those songs that you have on repeat to listen to again and again! 

Activity Comfort

Do you have an activity that comforts you? Maybe you just need a break to play, laugh and have fun. Maybe you find release and comfort in physical activity. Find your inner kid along with your sense of humor and have some much needed play and fun time! 

Think crazy cat videos, goats in pajamas, etc.!

Remember to keep the mind active too! Trying new things. Continuing to learn and develop. Keeping the mind active is challenging as well as rewarding! That feeling of I can do this. That feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment. It is inspiring and motivating!

Creative Comfort

Remember to create your comfort!

Create and set healthy boundaries for yourself and your whole, well being! Helps you become more productive with your time and energy. Puts the drama and negativity on simmer. You will feel more energized and less drained in doing for yourself and your needs! 

Tune into your intuition! It is like a self check to see what is working and what is not as well as what is serving you best and what is not. How do you really need to spend your time and energies?

Tap into your creative being! Engage your creative side (mind and heart) as well as surround yourself with creativity. Really stretch yourself and the possibilities are endless in being creative! 

Home Comfort

How do you stay rooted?

I think about home. Finding that place that gives you calm, comfort and solace. Your favorite spot to just be and hang out!

The gathering and connecting. The eating and communicating. The grounding and comforting. The loving and supporting.

Home Sweet Home!

Five Senses Comfort

Remember to engage your five senses!

  • Music (hearing).
  • Fauna, flora or aromatherapy (smell).
  • Watching the sun rise or set (vision).
  • Taste (taking pleasure and enjoyment in what you eat).
  • Touch (feeling the ground beneath your feet).

There is nothing better for the being than soaking up some natural rays too! Think about the lighting in your home and work environments too.

R&R Comfort

Do you hit the snooze to have five extra minutes in bed? To meditate, to stretch, etc. Sometimes it helps you wake more naturally then just jumping out of bed once the alarms sounds.

  • Curling up with a good read.
  • Sitting back with a bowl of popcorn to watch a good movie.
  • Taking a cat nap.

Temp Comfort

Sometimes you want the heat and other times you want the cool! Spicy foods, hot yoga, etc. Ice coffee, air conditioning, etc. Have you ever found yourself curled in a blanket with the AC blasting – ha!

Here’s to Finding What COMFORTS You! Love to Hear Your Thoughts, Please Share.


Manifest Grounding

When You Experience Change

Change happens, right! You feel like everything is in order and then SURPRISE! You either embrace it or it turns your world a bit. Especially when change really throws you for a loop and your life out of whack!

Practicing

Do you have a good practice in place to adjust to change? Yes, no or working on it. Change can be good or rock your world, especially those sudden and unexpected changes. Remember you have to do what is best for you in those times of change!

How will you practice going forward in improving your ability and capacity for handling change moments?

Put Your Oxygen Mask On First!

Practicing . . . To nurture and nourish. To communicate and connect. To tune into your emotions, feelings and thoughts. To tap into what you need!

Do you find yourself pulling away and wanting to take the stakes up?

Do you want to curl into a ball? Do you just want to hide out for a while?

Practicing . . . To be flexible to better adjust and become more resilient to change. To remain as calm and level headed as possible. To listen to what you need in those moments of change. To learn how to bend and not snap!

Do you find yourself “over” . . . whelmed, stimulated, etc.

Do you find yourself tightening and constricting?

Practicing . . . To release helps you center. To let go to find your balance, especially in those times when you have no control in the change. Making the time to tune into your whole being and its needs! 


Practicing . . . Nurturing . . . Growing . . .

Processing

When you are in that change moment you tend to react not relax into the experience (unless it is good change)! It is not easy to find an even keel let alone a positive mood/attitude in those moments. Sometimes we are not even ready for a “there, there” or here’s some good advice for you. More times than not we need to process the change!

You may need to create the space you need to process the change! Stress and anxiety leads to tension and that can constrict how your body functions. A space where you can be with yourself to just be and take a breather. To release and relax. To bring your focus inward for clarity and awareness to work through the change process!


Processing . . . Being . . . Flowing . . .

Grounding

Have You Tried Grounding?

I have been reading about grounding when it comes to experiencing change! That react/run and/or fight or flight reaction. At times it is just too much to handle and process. You almost feel like you are losing your sense of self. You may be able to ground and/or center yourself by rooting your whole being to the here and now!

Rooting to the here and now is a good process to start practicing for the whole of your being!

How Do You Ground/Center/Root In Change Moments?

I think about getting physically grounded! From your feet to your fingertips to the top of your head. Standing with your feet apart and spreading your toes. Interlacing your fingers and stretching your arms above you. Breathing in and breathing out!

I think about building a solid foundation to live from! To find that stability and self security you need in times of change. To become aware of inner being to communicate, interact and connect with your whole being again. To get out of that survive mode and know this is survivable! 

I think about taking a much needed time out! To relax and rest to balance your whole being again. To recharge and re-energize. To be aware of your whole body to do a self check to determine your needs in those moments of change!

Will you tap into grounding?

  • To better root your whole being.
  • To cultivate your balance to center.
  • To focus inward on your needs.
  • To manage your time and energy more efficiently.
  • To communicate and connect as well as interact and engage YOU.
  • To have your mind and heart work as a team.
  • To better cope and become more resilient.
