The Space Where We Shine
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine…
Do you remember that song? I love this song! I sang it to my son when he was a baby. Fast forward to our adult self. How are you shinning your illuminated self.
Our solar plexus is the space where we are meant to shine.
This makes me think about confidence. Confidence can sometimes feel like a concept that the mind is trying to grapple with. And can feel like surface confidence. Confidence that is performative.
What if it’s not about confidence? What if it’s about deep trust in our highest self so that we feel fully aligned in our business as our most evolved self?
And show up authentically as our illuminated sun-shiny self.
Do you work with your solar plexus? It can inform you how you are digesting life.
One simple way to work with your solar plexus is breathwork and asking a question. Although the solar plexus is part of our sympathetic nervous system (flight, fight or freeze), when we activate nasal breathing, it turns on our parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest). Awareness and self-acceptance are the keys to revealing messages your solar plexus is sharing with you.
Solar Plexus Breathwork
⫸︎︎ Sit in a comfortable position, back straight.
⫸︎︎Begin to notice your breath. You’re not changing how you breathe, you are noticing how you are breathing.
⫸︎︎Bring your focus to your solar plexus (stomach).
⫸︎︎If comfortable, close your eyes and begin inhaling and exhaling through your nose. Nasal breathing can activate the parasympathetic ‘rest and digest’ and ‘tend and befriend’ energy. Versus activating the sympathetic ‘fight, flight, or freeze’ energy.
⫸︎︎While breathing and focusing on your solar plexus, ask yourself, “what am I feeling right now.”
⫸︎︎What message did you receive? Whatever you received or didn’t receive, thank your solar plexus by saying, “thank you, what else.”
⫸︎︎Continue breathing and saying, “thank you, what else.”
⫸︎︎This can reveal where there are areas in our life that could use some extra TLC.
⫸︎︎Begin to breathe with the natural rhythm of your breath. Open your eyes and if you desire to write down anything your solar plexus shared with you, this would be a great time to do that.
What we reveal and work through is what we heal. Healing is a journey and doesn’t have to feel like ‘doom and gloom.’
I believe our body is the root system of our business. And it’s a journey of self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-reflection, and self-healing.
As we expand, evolve and elevate our lives. A masterful journey of the evolution of self. We begin to experience the highest expression of ourselves. Aligning your business with your most evolved self is the journey.
Coming back into the remembrance of the wisdom of our body is the key to feeling fully aligned in our business.
