Have you reached out to your Inner Guide lately? It’s the part of you who is eternal, unlimited, and knows your potential. Your wiser self is forever patient and enlightened. It understands your life and knows it could help, if you would simply call.
Remember that your higher self is the part of you, who wants only your highest good. But many of us feel disconnected from our inner power. Due to stress, depression, illness, or just the busyness of life, we feel out of touch.
My soon-to-be released book called Inner Power NOW will help us connect to that light source within to feel more empowered. I’m including a few chapters for teens, because there’s a huge need to help them with anxiety and stress. According to a recent survey published by the American Psychological Association, teens experience even more stress than adults.
As you may know, teens face enormous pressure these days. The drive to get good grades and get accepted into elite colleges. They also feel pressure to excel in athletics and lead school activities. That’s why there’s a growing popularity to offer meditation and mindfulness to teachers and students in education.
I salute this effort. Teens and young adults will gain enormous strength from connecting to their Inner Guide that will help them when times are tough. Meditation and Guided Imagery also will help creativity, build focus, compassion, and self-love
When we go within through meditation or Guided Imagery, we lower the stress hormone cortisol. That’s a physical change and in terms of our mind, meditation and Guided Imagery will help teens to become more aware of their thoughts. They can witness a worry thought, without getting caught up in the fear.
It’s helpful to remember that we are resilient. Meditation and Guided Imagery will help us better cope with life on life’s terms with more ease. You will open up to the more compassionate and creative parts of your brain.
One area that remains vital to success is compassion towards ourselves. How often do we beat ourselves up that we’re not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, or thin enough? We can learn to manage that inner critic, by refusing to listen when it starts to criticize. Do not beat yourself up. Instead, relax, go inside to your heart, and connect with your Divine self.
