Know anyone who’s stuck, especially due to a loss, exhaustion, sluggishness, depression, anxiety, overwhelm, or just plain despondent? These are signs of an energy imbalance that needs attention. How can your body open up, if its holding pain or your mind is full of expectations? How can you help yourself if you lack the motivation, support or know-how to uplift yourself?
Acupressure points can help, but when you combine them with breathing deeply, the chemistry within your body changes. Deep breathing while holding Lung 1 (Lu 1) opens the respiratory system, clears repressed emotions by being able to breathe deeply again, and thus releases grief, emotional holding, frustration, and anger. If you are stuck, these Lung points can allow you to let go of what you’re holding on to.
Holding the Lung 1 acupressure points releases emotional pain, numbness, heartache, sadness, and depression by increasing the body’s ability to breathe more deeply and assimilate the vital energy you get from oxygen. Holding these acupressure points while you breathe deeply can release tears and thus free your spirit. Video clip below.
Lung 1, called Letting Go, is located on the upper outer portion of the chest, three finger widths below the collarbone. These acupressure points on both sides of your can facilitate letting go of grief, a natural response to loss, which is an inevitable aspect of life. When you lose someone or something you love, these acupressure points open the grieving process to let go and move on in a good way. Grieving is an emotional purification; crying opens the breath, allows you to let go, and renews your spirit.
Self-Care Instructions: When your energy system is blocked, you can become fatigued, anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, and despondent because your supply of energy is impaired. U,se your fingertips to press the Letting Go acupressure points (Lu 1). Inhale slowly and deeply as you gradually release your finger pressure, bring your arms outward, lift your chest, and tilt your head back. Hold your breath for a few second to assimilate the oxygen. Exhale as your head comes downward and your fingertips return to the Lung 1 acupressure points. Repeat this exercise four or five more times.
Going Further: Use this quick and easy Acupressure breathing exercise as much as you like throughout the day to counteract being depressed or stuck. Think of it as a great tool, a quick fix. To help yourself further, I recommend practicing the Qi Gong breathing exercises and acupressure points in Less Stress, the guided video, twice a day. I’ll give you a 30-day guarantee to refund your money, if you try this twice a day and do not get relief from grief, anxiety, depression, sluggishness, or fatigue. I recommend the discounted Self-Healing Package, which includes this DVD and my newest book on emotional healing, for those who want to use my programs in much more depth.
