About the importance of a relaxed state
Most of our modern life is lived in tensions of some kind. Tensions about the things we (or others) haven't done, tensions about the things we (or others!) should be doing or should have done, tension about making the "wrong" choices, tensions about the past, tensions about the future, tension around finances, family and work...
Welcome to our modern world!
A world where we view relaxing as a luxury we can rarely afford and only at specific times. A moment of relaxation might be kept aside for special occasions such as evenings, days off, holidays or partys. Relaxing means time "off" or time "out", having nothing we have to do. We will often have a very clear picture of what this relaxed time looks like.
Yet this relaxed state has very little to do with the relaxed state of a hypnotherapy or Qigong/meditation session.
Why? Because for most of us, the ways in which we relax are external and also often involves an activity of some kind (in other words we are actually busy doing something).
In a Qigong/meditation practice and a hypnotherapy session we do the opposite. We bring the mind back inside of ourselves. We relax the body and the mind together and bring them back to their natural state of calmness.
In a truly calm and relaxed state not only can we have insights into the nature of our being we can also transform our life at a very deep level.
How could such a simple thing be so powerful? In a society which does not yet fully understand the totality of human life, we can easily find ourselves dismissive of the power and benefit of that which seems too simple to be true.
Properly understood a relaxed state is not a luxury but an intrinsic part of a healthy life. When we can be relaxed no matter what, life flows effortlessly and we can experience true harmony. Harmony within, harmony with others and harmony with the world.
