3 Tools for Managing Stress and Trauma
Take Meditation for instance, with a few concentrated moments a day, each day, one can access a peaceful loving feeling inside. This recharges all the cells and the neurons in the brain begin to open and wake up. What a goldmine the brain is. She deserves some concentrated attention, some mindful gratitude. Imagine a funnel open to the stars. Breathe into the highest point on top of your head and exhale down your spine into your belly and feet. Feel yourself beginning to relax. Place your hands over your heart too! Connect the brain and the heart! Do it 3-5 times with all of your attention. Feel the energy of the stars, nature, air traveling from brain to heart. Golden shining brain, open relaxed heart. Mmmmmmmm, so yummy! My best meditation times are early morning and the 4-6pm hour when the kidneys are working their hardest. Taking this time is such a gift to yourself and the world. Go to www.notablehealing.com/recordings to access an 8” of Peacefulness Meditation. Just set your phone to airplane mode, lie down comfy or sit back with both feet on the floor and in ya go, to a relaxed state of being for just those few minutes. It’s a total reset. I hope you will take advantage of it and enjoy this short restorative time.

Perhaps you have heard of the largest comet ever seen, Chiron, such a paradox that scientists can’t label it. More akin to an asteroid or perhaps its something new, a planetoid! Chiron lies between Saturn and Uranus and supports the healer within. It is helpful for building courage and strength, it urges us towards wholeness and helps with detoxification. Chiron is a steward to our Earth.
Some Specific Disharmonies it can assist with are: Deep physical and psychological wounds and scars, sexual abuse, injuries or illnesses that are slow to heal, old patterns that inhibit personal progress, brain imbalances, disconnection from nature.
Chiron is a mystery to us all and in Greek stems from “cheir” which means “hand.” Chiron is here now to lend us a healing hand!
