There may be times in your life when you feel anxious and overwhelmed. Maybe you have commitments, obligations or projects bidding for your attention…all at the same time! Maybe you have an important decision to make and find yourself having a difficult time focusing. Or maybe you are simply exhausted from all the multitasking.

Remember to stop, take a breath and “close all unnecessary doors.”

When you feel overwhelmed it usually means your energy has stopped flowing. You see the projects before you requiring more energy than you believe you have to perform them.

Here is the visual that can help you.

Imagine yourself standing in the middle of a circular room. All around the circle are the many doors leading to the areas of your life. Each door has a label on it, family, career, relationships, finances, health, home, personal care, etc. Many of the doors are open and some may even have “stuff” spilling out onto the floor. Stand in the center of this circle and call your energy to be present by taking three deep breaths. Spirit is in our breath. You embrace Spirit with each breath. Imagine yourself walking around the room, closing all the doors. Take a deep breath, close the door, than exhale.

Move yourself around the room until all the doors are closed. Return to the center and breathe. Place your attention on your breath. Feel yourself more centered as your energy comes together within.

Now, you truly have the power to stand in the center of your circle of life fully empowered to walk into your life opening one door at a time.

If you practice this visualization on a regular basis, you will feel more centered and balanced as you move through your life. When you feel the slightest anxiety you will be able to use this visualization in your conscious breathing to return to center.
