Reflexology For The Spirit

Self Care for You, Reflexologist – 3

Reflexologists, body workers, healers, whatever the title…we all have days when the clients seem to be lined up outside the door in an unending line.

OR, one client comes in for an appointment and it turns out to be a challenging day.

So, whether it’s one client or ten..days can be challenging.

What is a reflexologist to do?

One thing I do, no matter what,  is take a power break.

A power break  manifests itself in many ways:

  1.  A short meditation of two or three minutes can completely change the energy –  not only in your space, but in you as well.  This meditation can stretch beyond the three minutes if your schedule allows.  Do you have even fifteen minutes?  Go for it!
  2. Take a clean air break and step outside for a moment or two.  Breathe deeply.  Enjoy the day – whatever it is.  It doesn’t really matter whether you step out into the most beautiful day of the year or walk out to greet a major storm.  The important thing is that you have stepped out of your space into the world for a moment.
  3. Find a quiet corner, lay down on the floor and prop your feet up the wall.  This posture, for two minutes can change your energy dramatically.  It can rejuvenate you for the rest of your day.
  4. Walk around your area for a moment and just do nothing.  Walk around aimlessly.    This will allow you to empty your head in a way no other activity can.
  5. Can you nap for two minutes?  I’ve learned to do this and it is very refreshing.  The ideal nap  is fifteen minutes or more but two minutes can go a long way if it’s all you’ve got.
  6. Give yourself a quick Reiki session.  A few  minutes of Reiki therapy will offer much rejuvenation.
  7. Cut the cords.  This is easy, quick, and very effective.  Whenever you meet with another person, no matter how briefly, you connect on spiritual and emotional levels.  When you cut the cords, you sever this connection.  This cutting of the cords is important at least at the end of each day.  Cutting the cords after each appointment is a positive move.  Think of these cords as different colored ribbons attached at each end to you and the other person.  Cutting them will offer a release for you which can be freeing.

Whatever you do,  choose an activity you can rely on for rejuvenation, relaxation, stress release.  Make this power break part of your day, every day.
