  • 5 Meditation Techniques for Anxiety and Depression Relief: A Guide to Finding Peace

    In today's fast-paced world, the prevalence of anxiety and depression is on the rise, affecting many individuals' quality of life. Meditation is a powerful tool in combating these mental health challenges, and this blog post delves into five effective meditation techniques that can offer a sense of peace and well-being. 1. Mindfulness Meditation: The Art of Present Moment Awareness Mindfulness meditation is a technique that focuses on being intensely aware of what you're sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. By concentrating on the present, this practice helps reduce wandering thoughts, a common issue in anxiety and depression. Example: To practice mindfulness meditation, find a quiet and comfortable place to sit. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Pay attention to the rhythm of your breath and the sensation of air entering and exiting your nostrils. When your mind wanders, as it will, gently bring your focus back to your breath. This simple act of returning to your breath serves as a practice in letting go of distracting thoughts and calms your mind. 2. Guided Visualization: A Journey to Your Safe Haven Guided visualization involves using your imagination to transport yourself to a peaceful and happy place, either real or imaginary. This technique is effective in reducing stress by shifting your focus away from distressing thoughts to positive imagery. Example: Imagine you are walking on a serene beach. Visualize the warm sand under your feet, the sound of the waves crashing gently, and the smell of the salty ocean breeze. Engage all your senses in this visualization to make the experience as real as possible. 3. Mantra Meditation: Calming Your Mind with Repetition Mantra meditation involves repeating a calming word or phrase to anchor your mind and break the cycle of overthinking and anxiety. This technique is especially useful for those who find silence challenging. Example: Choose a word or phrase that resonates with you, such as "peace" or "calm." Sit quietly and repeat your chosen mantra silently with each breath. The repetition of the mantra helps focus your mind and reduces distracting thoughts. 4. Body Scan Meditation: A Path to Physical and Emotional Awareness Body scan meditation involves mentally scanning your body for areas of tension or discomfort, which can be signs of emotional distress. This technique promotes overall relaxation and mindfulness. Example: Begin with your toes and gradually move your attention up through your body, all the way to the top of your head. Notice how each body part feels – whether there is tension, warmth, coolness, or relaxation. Acknowledge these sensations without trying to change them. 5. Loving-kindness Meditation: Cultivating Compassion Loving-kindness meditation focuses on developing feelings of goodwill, kindness, and warmth towards yourself and others. This practice is particularly effective in reducing feelings of isolation, a common aspect of depression. Example: Repeat phrases like "May I be happy, may I be healthy, may I live with ease," directing these well-wishes towards yourself. Gradually extend these sentiments to include others, starting from loved ones and eventually to all beings. Incorporating these meditation techniques into your daily routine can have profound effects on your mental health, offering a natural and empowering way to manage anxiety and depression. When Meditation Feels Impossible For many, the idea of meditation can be intimidating, particularly if the concept of slowing down feels impossible or even scary. In our fast-paced lives, where constant activity and multitasking are often valued, taking a moment to pause and be still can seem daunting. Some fear that in the silence, they might encounter pent-up emotions or thoughts they've been avoiding, or they worry that they won't be able to "do it right" due to an overactive mind. It's important to recognize that these fears are not uncommon, and they are a natural part of the journey towards incorporating meditation into your life. Start small – even a few minutes of meditation can be beneficial. Remember, meditation is not about achieving a state of emptiness or forcing your mind to be quiet; it's about becoming an observer of your thoughts and feelings, without judgment. Approach meditation with a sense of curiosity rather than expectation. It's perfectly normal for your mind to wander – the practice is in gently bringing your attention back to your focus point, whether it's your breath, a mantra, or a visualization. Each time you do this, you strengthen your mindfulness muscle. Also, know that there are various forms of meditation, and not all involve complete stillness. Walking meditation or yoga can be excellent alternatives for those who find it challenging to sit still. These practices allow you to be mindful while also engaging in gentle movement. Embrace meditation as a personal journey. There is no right or wrong way to meditate. It's about finding what works for you and allowing yourself the space and grace to explore your inner world. Over time, as you become more comfortable with the practice, you may find that the moments of stillness become less intimidating and more of a refuge for peace and self-discovery.

  • Managing Stress and Depression Around the Holidays

    The holiday season can be a time of joy, but it’s also common for mental health struggles like stress, depression and anxiety to be intensified. The season is full of potential triggers and stressors. In addition to this, feelings of grief, loneliness, and disappointment are likely to surface at this time of the year. While we may often feel pressure to keep our spirits up and a smile on our faces during the holidays — sometimes this pressure can amplify existing emotional struggles and make them worse. It’s important to recognize and be accepting of various emotions throughout this season. Keep Up Your Self-Care Routines Maintaining your self-care during the holiday season is an important piece of navigating the stress of this time of year. It's easy to let time off work and school impact your daily routines, which can often get you out of the habit of taking care of yourself. Sustain what you can of your daily routine Prioritize getting enough sleep Eat nutritious dense food to keep your body strong Stay physically active Protect regularly scheduled self-care time Find a way to fit holiday obligations into your routines instead of letting them take over your life. Make Small Adjustments The holiday season can be filled with big plans, changes, and stressors, so put some attention on the little things that can help you relax. Take a Break from Technology Listen to your Favorite Music Take a Walk Look for Laughter Reach Out to Your Support System Turn Inward – Practice RAIN Lower Expectations The holidays can be long and full of commitments. Make a list of what you expect from yourself, what others expect from you and your responsibilities for the holidays. Get comfortable with the idea that you don’t have to do everything, and everything doesn’t have to be perfect. Accept that you may get sad or lonely, and that’s okay. If you’re coping with mental health concerns, they won’t go away just because of the holidays. Keep up your emotional health habits and apply when possible to your new set of responsibilities. It’s okay to do less. The spirit of the season can sometimes lead people to overcommit their time. When you’re looking at your calendar or to-do list, be fair to yourself. Decide what’s most important to you, or where you most want to go, and allow yourself to say no to other demands on your time. Accept Imperfection During this time of the year, we often set the bar impossibly high for ourselves and then feel disappointed with unmet expectations. Movies, television, and advertising leads us to think that every event must be picture perfect. Before you start preparing, acknowledge that things may not go exactly as planned. Try to see the fun that can happen when the spontaneous happens. Don’t Lose Sight of What Really Matters The holidays can get hectic. When overwhelm and reactivity kick in, return to the things that are most important to you. In moments of frustration, ask yourself "Does this impact what matters most to me? Can I use this moment of frustration as an opportunity to reflect? Can I return to gratitude?" Set Aside Differences As families gather during this season it can be hard to avoid friends and relatives that you don’t always agree with. Let go of hate, anger, and differences. Agree to disagree. Remind yourself of the reasons you love the people in your life. Respond with Compassion You can’t change how others act during the stresses of the holiday season, but you can change how you respond to situations. Listen. Let them communicate their thoughts and hear their concerns. Remember that this time can be difficult for everyone, and we each have our own struggles that may or may not be obvious on the outside. Practice Compassion Using RAIN: R - Recognize the pain of the Other who is suffering, What must it be like to that person? A - Allow for whatever comes up to be felt. I - Investigate - How must that feel? N - Nurture by asking: What might they need? How may I offer understanding?  Am I listening? Am I respecting?  What kindness might I offer?

  • Embodiment

    Embodiment is the act of expanding one’s self awareness to include the felt experience of the body, such as sensory, sensational, emotional and physical experiences, and incorporating that information into one’s overall conception and conduct of themselves, their identity, beliefs, behaviors, and ways of being. Using embodiment, she was able to realize that her short tempered outburst had nothing to do with her child asking for more snacks, but was because she felt physically trapped and overwhelmed.

Anxiety: Feeling disconnected from one's body can cause anxiety, as individuals may become hyper-aware of bodily sensations or perceive threats more acutely. Depression: Chronic disembodiment can contribute to feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, common symptoms of depression. Impaired Concentration: Difficulty in connecting with one's body might lead to impaired concentration and difficulty focusing on tasks. Identity Issues: Disembodiment can affect one's sense of identity and self-awareness, leading to confusion about one's place in the world Emotional Health Emotional Numbness: Disembodiment can lead to emotional numbness, where individuals struggle to experience emotions fully or have difficulty recognizing their own feelings.

Increased Irritability: Disembodiment can heighten irritability and frustration as individuals struggle to cope with their emotional experiences. Sense of Isolation: Feeling disconnected from one's body and emotions can lead to a sense of isolation, making it difficult to connect with others on an emotional level. Physical Health Chronic Pain: Disembodiment can exacerbate or even cause chronic pain conditions, as individuals may be less aware of their body's signals and fail to address physical issues promptly. Impaired Motor Skills: Feeling disconnected from the body can impact motor skills and coordination, leading to clumsiness or difficulty performing precise movements. Sleep Disturbances: Disembodiment can contribute to sleep disturbances, making it harder to fall asleep or stay asleep through the night. Compromised Immune Function: Prolonged disembodiment may contribute to chronic stress, which can suppress the immune system, making the body more susceptible to illnesses. Digestive Issues: Chronic stress related to disembodiment can lead to digestive problems, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and stomach ulcers. Causes of Disembodiment Psychological and Emotional Causes Trauma: Physical or emotional trauma, especially during childhood, can lead to dissociation and disembodiment as coping mechanisms to deal with overwhelming experiences. Anxiety Disorders: Individuals with anxiety disorders may experience disembodiment as a symptom, often accompanied by feelings of derealization and depersonalization. Depersonalization-Derealization Disorder: This is a specific mental health disorder characterized by persistent feelings of being detached from one's body or surroundings. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Dissociation and feelings of disembodiment are common symptoms in individuals with PTSD, especially in response to traumatic memories. Severe Stress: Prolonged periods of stress, such as chronic workplace stress or relationship issues, can trigger disembodiment as a stress response. Grief and Loss: Intense grief and loss can lead to feelings of numbness and disconnection from one's body as a way to cope with overwhelming emotions.

Migraines and Seizures: Some individuals experience feelings of disembodiment as auras or warning signs before migraines or seizures. Fibromyalgia: This chronic pain condition is often associated with feelings of detachment from the body, potentially due to the body's heightened sensitivity to pain. Epilepsy: Seizures, especially temporal lobe seizures, can cause altered perceptions of the body and lead to dissociative experiences. Sleep Disorders: Conditions like sleep paralysis, night terrors, or certain stages of sleep disorders can cause sensations of disembodiment. Substance-Related Causes Drug or Alcohol Use: Substance abuse, especially hallucinogenic drugs, can induce dissociative states and feelings of disembodiment. Withdrawal: During withdrawal from certain substances, individuals may experience derealization and depersonalization, feeling disconnected from themselves and reality. Other Causes Chronic Pain: Persistent pain conditions can lead to disembodiment as the brain's way of coping with ongoing discomfort. Cultural or Religious Factors: Some cultural practices or religious rituals involve altered states of consciousness that can induce feelings of disembodiment. The Journey Back to Embodiment How to Tune into Your Body’s Signals and Practical Steps to Become More Embodied Practice Mindfulness and Awareness: Engage in daily mindfulness meditation or deep breathing exercises. Regularly check in with your body and emotions throughout the day, noting any sensations without judgment. Body Scan Meditation: Practice body scan meditations to systematically focus your attention on each part of your body, noting any sensations without judgment.

Engage in positive affirmations and challenge negative self-talk about your body. Connect with Nature: Spend time outdoors, appreciating natural surroundings and engaging with the elements. Ground yourself by standing barefoot on the earth, feeling the connection between your body and the ground beneath you. Seek Body-Centered Therapies: Consider therapies like massage, acupuncture, or chiropractic care to promote body awareness and relaxation. Explore body-oriented therapy or somatic experiencing to address underlying emotional issues related to disembodiment. Massage Therapy: Regular massages can increase body awareness by focusing your attention on various sensations and tensions in your body.

  • Breathwork

    Breathwork is a transformative technique that involves intentionally controlling your breathing patterns to process and move through stuck energy in the body. There are many types of breathwork that can be done on your own, such as deep belly breathing and box breathing. Additionally, there are instructors trained in specific modalities who can provide expert guidance to help you explore and go deeper into your healing journey. Breathwork Deep Dive with Katie Hopson, Certified Trauma-Informed Healing and Breathwork Coach Breathwork Practices You Can Do On Your Own Deep Belly Breathing: Deep belly breathing is a simple technique to promote relaxation and reduce stress. Find a quiet and comfortable place to sit or lie down. Instructions: Place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen. Inhale slowly through your nose, allowing your abdomen to rise as you fill your lungs with air. Exhale slowly through your mouth or nose, feeling your abdomen fall as you release the breath. Focus on the rhythm of your breath, making each inhalation and exhalation deep and deliberate. Continue this pattern for a few minutes, allowing your body and mind to unwind. Box Breathing: Box breathing, also known as square breathing, is a calming technique that helps regulate your breath and create a sense of balance. Instructions: Inhale through your nose for a count of four. Hold your breath for a count of four. Exhale slowly through your nose for a count of four. Pause and hold your breath for another count of four. Repeat this pattern for several rounds, gradually increasing the count if comfortable. Focus on the even, steady rhythm as you draw each "side" of the imaginary box with your breath. Alternate Nostril Breathing: Alternate nostril breathing is a yogic practice that can help balance energy and promote a sense of equilibrium in the body and mind. Instructions: Sit comfortably with your spine straight and shoulders relaxed. Use your right thumb to close your right nostril and inhale deeply through your left nostril. Close your left nostril with your right ring finger and release your right nostril. Exhale through your right nostril. Inhale deeply through your right nostril. Close your right nostril and release your left nostril. Exhale through your left nostril. This completes one round. Continue alternating for several rounds, focusing on your breath and the balance between the two nostrils.

  • Reiki

REIKI (pronounced “Ray-Kee”) is a Japanese healing art technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes well-being and the body’s innate healing ability. Reiki can be practiced either, in person, or totally remotely, with the same effect. Reiki is based on the idea that life force energy (also known as “qi” or “chi”) flows through us, promoting healing by removing blocks. Receiving Reiki May Help • relax and de-stress us • ground us • alleviate pain • replenish our energetic reserves • improve quality of life, especially when we are run down and exhausted • aid in promoting restful sleep • support us through grief Interested in trying Reiki?

Book with Gillian Frequently Asked Questions Q: How does Reiki work? A: Reiki works by balancing and harmonizing the energy flow within the body. The practitioner serves as a conduit for the universal life force energy, directing it to areas in need of healing or restoration. This energy helps to activate the body's natural healing abilities and supports overall well-being. Q: What can I expect during a Reiki session? A: Similar to an in-person session, you will find a quiet and comfortable space in your home where you can relax. The practitioner will initiate the video call on Zoom, and you will be guided through the session as if you were physically present.

If you have something specific you'd like to work on, you can bring that to your session. Reiki can be beneficial whether you have something in mind or not - you can get as specific as you want, or you can be broad. Reiki works with the body's innate healing ability, unblocking energy that is stuck and helping things flow more freely. Q: How many Reiki sessions do I need? A: The number of Reiki sessions needed varies depending on individual circumstances and goals. Some individuals may find benefit from a single session, while others may benefit from regular sessions over a period of time.

  • Alignment

    You can create the life you want, set boundaries, love your people, your work and yourself better, and make decisions with confidence, all from a place of strength and clarity. In this module, we discuss how living in alignment is a powerful concept that can transform your life and empower you to create the reality you desire. Living in alignment means finding harmony between different aspects of your life, such as your values, goals, relationships, and personal well-being. When you are in alignment, you experience a deep sense of congruence and purpose, allowing you to navigate life with strength, clarity, and authenticity. By understanding yourself and getting to know the real you, your most heartfelt desires, you gain clarity on what truly matters to you. This clarity becomes a guiding compass that helps you align your choices and actions with your values and aspirations. With alignment, decision-making becomes more intentional, empowering you to move towards the outcomes that resonate deeply with your authentic self. Living in alignment liberates you from societal expectations and the burden of "shoulds." By embracing your authentic self, you release the need to conform to external pressures or societal norms. You become attuned to your own desires, values, and passions, and can confidently chart your own path. "The No Train" becomes a powerful tool as you learn to say no to commitments, relationships, or activities that do not align with your true essence, making space for what truly serves your growth and happiness. In the pursuit of alignment, you have the opportunity to design a life you love. By understanding what truly resonates with you and limiting what no longer serves you, you create space for meaningful experiences, relationships, and pursuits. Alignment helps you identify and prioritize what brings you joy and fulfillment, allowing you to craft a life that aligns with your unique aspirations and values. It enables you to live with intention and purpose, pursuing the things that truly matter to you and letting go of what no longer contributes to your well-being. Living in Alignment is a transformative practice that can guide you towards a life of fulfillment, purpose, and joy. Deep Dive Replay
