87 - Grounding
As we process our experiences from the past year, it may be useful to notice the relationship between our bodies and our stress. We know that emotional stress -- including anxiety, grief, anger, and fear -- can create stress in our bodies. But we may forget that the stress in our bodies can amplify our emotional stress as well. This creates a feedback loop, where our nervous system continues to create a stress response even long after a 'threat' is gone. This can create a backlog, where we are too busy to respond 'presently' because we are re-enacting and reacting to events of the past.
In today's meditation, we use simple grounding techniques to relax our bodies and to discharge our nervous system's stress response.
