Having the feeling of calmness occurs in both the physical and mental being. Both states work together in a group effort of the body and mind. For many people who are lacking a sense of safety and security or are on defense because of different reasons often feel unsettled. Having periods of calmness is a human need. We need to have a feeling of safety to grow and to heal, therefore meditation, visual imagery and solitude are so helpful in establishing a healthy sense of secure well being. When our mind is telling the body that it is in danger the nervous system acts defensively and the body becomes tense and strained. There are resources that can help to maintain a healthy well being. Some are listed below, if you would like further information or support in working through some of these concepts, please contract me for an appointment.
