Changing Habits

46 mins

Let go of habits that are holding you back and replace them with new, dynamic and empowering ones.

Join Andrew, as he takes you through a series of movements, combined with mental and emotional focus that will enable you to let go of any unwanted habits that may be tripping you up as you walk the road of life.

Emotions, negative thoughts and habits are often held in the physical body. To dissolve long term habits we must withdraw our energy and focus from that habit. One powerful technique is to combine movement and intention to transform and free energy blockages, and replace the old thought patterns with new and invigorated, fresh ways of thinking!

Get activated! Clap and move! Begin clapping from standing position and give yourself a round of applause for simply being you! Enjoy a series of flowing movements to loosen the whole body.

Energy Block Release 2 (Part 1):

Start focusing on specific muscle groups as we work through the simple, but profound movements of EBR2.

In this sequence, think of your spine being like a filing cabinet which stores packages of energy. This energy is a series of unconscious habits that are holding us back in life because they are restricted or blocked. Start to mobilise the spine, specifically freeing up and mobilising that 'stuck' energy.

What is an Energy Block Release?

Energy Block Release 5:
This sequence is excellent for helping us remove negative patterns of thought and replacing them with new empowering ones. 

We use visualisation to create a golden orb of light or 'prana shakti' (life energy) and use this light to clear the three lowest energy centres. This is where we tend to hold on to most of our trapped or 'blocked' emotions and fears. In this version of EBR 5, we focus specifically on this visualisation of purifying energy as we swing the arms back past the side of the body. This movement clears the energy pathways and the energy field on that side, before we repeat the process on the opposite side. (Dru Yoga graduates will notice a variation from the standard form).

Use the following positive affirmations to enhance the potency of this sequence:

  • The base centre - muladhara: 'I am courageousness itself. I am strong'
  • The sacral centre  - swadisthana: 'I am complete, I am full.'
  • The solar centre - manipura: 'I am empowered. I am able to achieve my goals. I make them become real.'

Golden Eagle sequence:
When starting to work with our habits, it's useful to begin with a few manageable ones, for instance - perhaps we watch too much TV at night. Choose a habit and decide to work with it today.

Discover the power of visualisation to empower this sequence by using the image of pure sunlight, or if you would like to enjoy practicing this breathing sequence at night, imagine the power of the moon entering through the palms of your hands.

Take the opportunity to fully connect to your body and to re-establish a new and empowered relationship with your thoughts and feelings in this simple, yet profound relaxation. Breathe in bright sunlight and let it breathe away any lingering shadows of self-doubt.

Practice this sequence regularly and within three weeks you'll begin to notice your old habits falling away and your new ones arriving. Good Luck!

Calming, warming and earthing. The language is so caring, like a door opening and being invited in somewhere beautiful, full of light and warmth. It has taken me 6 months to discover my power, to feel more connected, stronger, happier and relevant. Thank you so much.
