Whether in the physical body or the emotional body, where there is discomfort, tension, constriction, breathe into it, allow yourself to feel it fully. There may be an image there, a color, a word or words or there may not.
Allow yourself to go back and forth a couple of times.
Then fall back into an oceanic spaciousness, expansive and whole, where you can embrace discomfort and comfort. Perhaps from this spacious awareness, something in between discomfort and comfort arises. Does this middle ground have a home in your body? There may be an image there, a color, a word or words or there may not. Perhaps from this middle ground a true affirmation arises. Something that feels authentic. See if you can put that into an “I am” statement, or an “I have” or perhaps, “a stream of >>>> flows through me now.” Let your affirmation be in the present tense. If you found one, say it to yourself three times. Say it out loud three times. Then ask someone you trust to say it back to you three times. In yoga, we call this your sankalpa. If something authentic arose, use it in poses like Mountain and Warrior, or whenever you need to remind yourself of that truth.
