Hello. how accurate is this practice? how long does it last?
Hmph, think you are right. I will do whatever I can to prevent the mistakes I did before from happening again… I will think about my life until I accept myself and the mistakes I did. Thank you so much, Jana. Hope I will get over it. Sadly, I don’t have time at the moment, but I’ll think about it later. Thank you again.
Hi Samuel, thank you for reaching out! I would first start with making peace with the past. Acceptance is such a powerful tool, as what we resist persists. It also teaches us self-love and embracing our humanity. On some level we are all work in progress and what we often perceive as mistakes are just learning experiences. And if we can take the gifts of what we learnt from those experiences into our present moment, we are already healing our past. And even if it would only mean that we now have more understanding and compassion for ourselves and others, it would be more than enough. Learning to be gentle with ourselves and treating ourselves like a best friend is so important!
On a more practical level, it’s often helpful to do some physical exercise too which will ground your energy and calm the mind. Also being in nature is calming and relaxing.
I hope you found this helpful. In case you would like to take it further you can book one to one session of life coaching with me. Jana
Hello, Jana! I’m suffering from depression a lot, and I don’t know what should I do to get out of this. I often think about the past, and I really want to change almost everything there. I decided to try meditation but didn’t help me because every time I try to focus on breathing, I start thinking about the past, and I don’t know how to stop the stream of consciousness. Can you give me some tips, please?
