During this video I will keep bringing you back to simple things of this moment to help ground and stabilize your nervous system. Repeating the video and doing it a few times, or sections a few times, maybe helpful. Listening often also will be helpful in re-wiring your habitual brain patterns. Feel free to push pause at any point while listening/watching. After listening you may be then ready to do some more meditation and/or self inquiry.
Last night was the first night in awhile where it was cool enough to keep my bedroom door open. Delight!
It also led to me waking up quite a bit during the night. This led to experientially connecting with a question that came up in a recent gathering:
What can I do when waking up in the middle of the night?
Looking back, I recognise that I was anxious from a very young age, but the extent of the anxiety didn’t become apparent until I was in my late twenties and started having panic attacks. A close friend of mine had dropped dead in tragic circumstances a few days before they started, and very soon I found myself facing the suppressed horror and grief of a previous loss, the death of my best friend in an accident when we were eighteen.
