When my daughter was 6, out of desperation I told her to just stand there and hold breathe peace and calming out of the bottle when I thought for sure we’d get kicked out of the store for her non stop movement.
But within less than a minute I watched this wild animal look disappear from her eyes, her shoulders relax and she said “gracias." It opened my eyes that she actually couldn't control herself 😭 - from that moment on I always hand her Peace & Calming when she loses control of her body from “energy.” It brings her back to me every. single. time!!!
Peace & Calming can signal overtired and overworked body systems that it is a safe space to release stress and defenses and allow blocks in relationships to come down.
Have you ever felt overtired, anxious or overwhelmed in the past couple of years? Or maybe you’ve felt lonely? Depressed? Indecisive? Like a victim of your circumstances?
USE THIS DAILY!!
😨 FOR WHEN YOU ARE SCARED:
Put it up and down your throat and repeat “I am SAFE.” “I am still.”
🌪 FOR WHEN YOU FEEL OUT OF CONTROL AND OUT OF YOUR DEPTH:
Balance and healthy boundaries can be the opposite of out of control. Using Peace & Calming on your stomach, focusing on the mantra "I am content" can really help quell strong desires to be in control. Control is something we often seek subconsciously and don't notice until we feel, well "out of it!". Thus out of control. Peace & Calming can be a huge help in this area!
😢 FOR WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE A VICTIM TO YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES:
Massage P&C into the muscle on the top of your shoulders between your neck and your shoulder joint. What is that even called?! lol I hope you get the idea.
😭 FOR WHEN YOU FEEL DEPRESSED:
Put it behind your ears along that bone. Then take what’s left and massage your your ear. “I am glad I am alive.”
💔 FOR WHEN YOU FEEL UNWANTED OR UNLOVABLE:
Often, feelings of deep unease, instability, and moodiness are born from this deep false belief about ourselves. Just smelling P & C can help support our hormones too. Often our hormones can get out of whack when we feel deep sadness and unease AND hormones being out of whack can cause these sad feelings and beliefs- everything is connected! Peace & Calming can help both the feelings and hormonal balance!
🤔 FOR INDECISIVENESS:
Put on the back of the neck along the spine and repeat “ I have clarity”
