brain breaks // power word
The following exercise creates a positive power word or mantra.
As you move through your day, you can call on any quality that you want by thinking of the specific quality as you take a conscious inhale. The idea here is to really feel into your Power mantra or word. Imagining embodying it entirely.
When you are feeling like you need a bit of a pep up, or perhaps you’ve had an average day, your power word or mantra can help lift your spirits.
Here are a few words as examples;
Power. Relief. Love. Peace. Groundedness. Calm. Inspiration. Energising.
Or perhaps some mantras;
I am strong. I am Powerful. I am fierce.
What does power look like to you? What does love look like to you? How about Calm, energising, peace? Really consider these words and mantras and begin to cultivate the feelings associated with the words.
If it doesn’t work right away, just experiment with it. It is a wonderful exercise when done for a few moments here and there.
In a time of need, call upon this word or mantra, really lean into the emotion of the word and feel the elevation of your mind and mood. One way to get into this exercise is when you are having a magical moment, during a sunrise or sunset, during a moment with a loved one, perhaps when you are enjoying a walk.
Give it a go and see what you find.
