Close your eyes and imagine you’re being embraced by an energy outside of your body. It might feel squishy, furry, solid or like liquid. It could have a colour – glowing gold, bright orange, gentle pink. And it will make you feel as if you’re being cocooned, cuddled, lifted, warmed and protected. You can call this energy Universe, Source, Mother Earth, God or something else. It might be female, male, neither or both. Once you feel you are being held, say simply: help me. And allow the weight of your conundrum to transfer from your body, mind and spirit onto theirs. Relax into this new, surrendered state and give thanks.
