Step 1. Heart Focus. Shift your attention to the area of the heart, or the center of your chest. If you don’t understand how, try this: Focus on your right big toe and wiggle it. Now focus on your right elbow. Now gently focus in the center of your chest, the area of your heart. If you lose focus, just keep shifting your attention back to the area of your heart. Now you’re ready for the next step, Heart Breathing.
Step 2: Heart Breathing. Imagine the air entering and leaving through the heart area, or the center of your chest. Heart Breathing helps you begin to get in sync and draws the energy out of the head, where negative thoughts and feelings are amplified. This helps neutralize stressful feelings. If it’s hard to disengage from stressful feelings, don’t worry. Just focus on your BREATHE and continue to Imagine the air entering and leaving through the heart area.
Step 3: Heart Feeling. (This could be a feeling of appreciation toward a special person or a pet, a place you enjoy, or an activity that was fun.)
This is the key step to getting and staying in sync. Holding a positive feeling makes it easier to stay in sync for longer periods of time, so that it becomes easier to remain calm and balanced even in tough times.
