Energy Medicine and the Ruby Slippers
Last night I found myself awake in bed, heart racing, having a panic attack. While I do tend to wake up in the middle of the night, panic attacks are pretty unusual for me.
At 4:30 I got out of bed and quietly did a few energy medicine exercises. In less than 3 minutes I was more present and calm. I went back to bed and did some breathwork and cradled my Triple Warmer (the energy of fight/flight/freeze) and soon fell back to sleep.
The exercises I used, The Blow-Out, Taking Down the Flame, and the Hook-Up are from my training with Donna Eden. Two of these and the breathwork (through the Chakras) are included in my card deck, Tools for the Sensitive Soul – The Empath's Survival Kit (Veronica Torres, co-creator).
Just like Dorothy had her Ruby Slippers, I had the tools to bring myself home all along.
