Worry if you’re Stressing about something this one is a great one to keep in your back pocket and do whenever you need to Before we get started if you aren’t yet subscribed to this channel Hit that subscribe button down below the video for two free yoga classes Every single week it is completely free to subscribe There is no risk to you whatsoever and I would love to have you join our community That is growing every single day of awesome amazing Nice people and I would love for you to join us so let’s get started Begin by sitting in a comfortable seated position with Your legs cross on the ground Or in chair whatever it is most comfortable for you Just be sure that your spine is straight When you’re ready close your eyes Come inward and begin to deepen your breathing Breathing in and out through your nose Start to focus your attention on your inhales and your exhales Notice the way your breath feels as it moves in and out of your body Notice how every time you inhale Your rib cage expands and your abdomen expands outward And every time you exhale the ribs and the abdomen come back inward Releasing the breath from your body Remain here for several deep breaths focusing on your inhales and your exhales You I now invite you to join me for a visualization Visualize yourself sitting beside a flowing stream and Imagine that the stream has leaves floating all along the water’s surface As you’re sitting by the stream Each time that a thought comes into your mind Take that thought place it on one of the leaves those on the water’s surface and Watch the thought float away on the leaf It doesn’t matter what kind of thought it is whether it’s happy or sad Just take the thought place it on the leaf and watch it float away If at one point your thoughts stop Just continue to visualize and watch the stream Watch it moving and watch all the leaves moving with it As you’re here be sure That the leaves and the stream are going at its own pace you Are not trying to rush the thoughts away Or get rid of them quickly Just allow them to come and go at their own pace If for some reason your mind starts to place judgment Saying that you are not doing this correctly Or that you don’t feel this is beneficial to you place those thoughts on the leaves as well and Watch them pass just as the others did If a leaf with a thought gets stuck or pauses just Allow that leaf to remain for as long as it needs to Until it’s ready to float away, and you’re ready to let it go If that same thought comes up again Just watch it float by as many times as you need to If a difficult thought comes into your mind That distracts you and makes you feel a certain way just Be mindful and notice that that thought is giving you a certain feeling and repeat the motion of placing the thought on the leaf and Watching it float away There may be moments Where your thoughts completely? distract you from this process And you forget about the leaves and the stream If this is the case when that occurs Just notice when you start to realize that you have stopped Visualizing the water and the leaves and when you’re ready come back to the water Come back to the leaves then place the thought on top of the floating leaf You can remain here if you would like to run as long as you need or If you’re ready Gently bring your attention back to your inhales and your exhales Noticing the way the breath is making your body feel And deepening your inhales expanding your ribcage And releasing the air out completely with your exhales When you’re ready Slowly begin to bring some motion back into your body By gently moving your hands your fingers your arms And slowly start to open your eyes by gently bringing the light back in
