Yeah I do guided imagery or visualization andprogressive muscle relaxation...used to do it, stopped now back doing these. Oh and deep breathing. And prayer and-lol!! Itried a yoga class but because of my herniated discs, it just hurt too badly BUT it is a godsend for alot of people.
We have to center ourselves and go in deeper past the physical shell and draw strength from the mind and soul where beauty and peace live..IG talks of an inner child and I think some of these techniques help us access that.
I did my visualization yesterday of my safest happiest place and time and after awhile all i could see were moments of simple joyful moments with loved ones, like a movie and I came out of it calm...really amazing stuff
Anyway, yoga or whatever we can do to rise up out of the morass is a terrific thing..Good luck elfen
