How To Calm A Freakout

Are you the type of person who needs to break down before you break through? For many years that was the case for me. Before I found Kundalini meditations and a greater connection to my energy, I had some epic freakouts. Though I had many tools for managing my thoughts, I didnít have great guidance on how to bust through the really tough times and save myself from a freakout.

One of the best ways to prevent a freakout is to change your energy through your breath. Every 90 to 120 breaths the dominance changes from one nostril to another. A powerful way to shift your state of mind is to actively change the dominant nostril using the†Kundalini meditation. In this exercise youíre guided to notice which nostril is dominant when youíre freaking out and then switch to the other nostril. When you switch the dominance from one nostril to the other you switch the dominance from one hemisphere of the brain to the other, which allows you to look at things from a different perspective.


Meditation to Prevent Freaking Out

Pose: Sit comfortably in Easy Pose with your spine straight.

Hands: Interlace your fingers with your right thumb on top. Place your hands at the center of your diaphragm, lightly touching your body.

Eyes: Gently close your eyes.

Breath: Concentrate on your breath, bringing awareness to the tips of your nostrils. Notice which nostril is dominant right now. It may take a few moments to clarify the dominant nostril. Once you are aware of the dominant nostril, focus your attention on switching sides. Keep your shoulders down and relaxed. You can have pressure in your hands but none in your shoulders.

Continue changing the dominant nostril breath back and forth as long as you like.

Use this meditation whenever you need to prevent a freakout. It’s also a great one to teach young children. This easy practice will be a powerful tool for them to carry into their future.

Thanks for sharing. Breathing exercises are very relaxing. I also find that imaging roots growing from my body traveling down through the different layers of earth, concrete bugs, bones, water anything really and drawing energy back up through all the "layers" really relaxing. I tried the envisioning breaches and calm places etc but didnt have much result. This method I found really helpful.

During times of extreme stress, and especially in the event of a meltdown, theanine is a wonderful supplement for discharging stress and enhancing relaxation. It is a common amino acid in tea, but for maximum effect, theanine capsules deliver a concentrated dose right when I need it. It really chills me out when things are out of hand.
