Start with a tense and release exercise through the body in pentacle pose.

Most people experience worry from time to time. Feeling worried can sometimes be a good thing, and can actually help motivate you to do things. Worry, however, is a constant factor in some people's lives which makes it hard for them to function on a daily basis. Worry involves many unrealistic fears and anxieties, interfering with a person's sleep, appetite, concentration on a task, and relaxing.

Worry is a fear-based emotion. Worry is found in the 3rd chakra in Yogic System

and the Stomach, Spleen, Pancreas in Taoism which Yin is apart of.

Frequent worry is an emotional cancer that eats away peace of mind and enjoyment of life. TCM says that worry literally eats us up by consuming the life force, prana, chi of our digestion and absorption organs, the stomach spleen and pancreas.

In TCM worry has brother and sister emotions of guilt, shame, anxiety and self-pity.

All these emotions are housed in our stomach, spleen and pancreas.

The positive emotions that are stored here are: openness stability, fairness, honesty and powerful intention

Spiritually the spleen houses: the Power of Intention Spirit or Yi

Place palms under left ribs with fingers perpendicular

The healing sound of the stomach, spleen, pancreas is whoooooooooooooooooooooo

Exhale sound whooooooooooo


There is a big difference between worrying and planning ahead.  When we repeatedly go over a plan then planning becomes worrying.

We must accept that no amount of planning can ever foresee all potential obstructions.  Also many people do not make proper plans for dealing with a particular problem even though the worry about the problem.

When worry takes over our lives we become unbalanced beings living in our heads.


Our minds become monkey minds with endless chattering about the dire consequences that will probably never happen.

Therefore, we are wasting our energy on useless thoughts.


Exhale healing sound whooooooooooooooooooo


Place palms under left ribs with fingers perpendicular

The healing sound of the stomach, spleen, pancreas is whoooooooooooooooooooooo

Exhale sound whooooooooooo

Release and worry, anxiety negative emotions

Smile to stomach, spleen, pancreas

Breath in golden light

Exhale cloudy gray substance – the guilt – and let it transform and fade away

Start by saying these affirmations:

“I forgive myself for not being perfect”
“It is natural to worry sometimes”
“I am a good person”
 “I am letting go of my worries”


The stomach is a muscular organ located on the left side of the upper abdomen.

Emotions can be understood as simply forms of stuck energy: kind of like legos, that have been "shaped" in a particular way.

The healing sounds break up a particular emotion/shape, so that the energy bound in that shape can

once again flow freely.


The emotions are not gotten rid of. Instead, the energy of the emotion is transformed.
If the mind wanders during this practice, no problem. Simply notice that this has happened, and come back to the practice.


Warm Up with Moving from Arms over head to child's pose. I call this movement Hosanna.

Connect to the stomach, pancreas, spleen by placing hands under the left rib cage

You’ll be touching your stomach and your spleen is inside the left rib cage

Notice any guilt worry anxiety shame self-pity, constriction, or imbalance there

If you find any ask for a message

In hale and turn your fingers perpendicular to the floor and press them gently into your abdomen, just below the ribs.  Make your right hand line up underneath the and to the left og sternum but still on the abdomen and the left hand line up with the nipple still on the abdomen
Inhale softly and exhale WHooooooooo

Visualize any worry, anxiety, guilt shame or self pity leave the stomach as a cloudy gray substance that disappears into the earth

Looking left and looking right to delete any remnants of the worry, guilt, self pity, etc

Inhale healing golden light

Return hands to below left rib cage

Be grateful for the roles the play in digestion and absorption

Still smiling, breathe naturally as you imagine you are breathing a golden yellow light into these organs
Sense your stomach, spleen and pancreas are larger and moister and softer and worry, anxiety, guilt, shame self –pity have been release and

Openness, fairness, intention and stability have increased

Inhale and exhale Whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

To alleviate worry if you have a genuine problem, resolve it, adopt a calm, positive attitude to help sort out the details. (as normal).

BOW POSE – 2nd Leg – Block Under the Leg
It’s more important to take daily action the indulging in the big questions.  If you desire to paint, write, garden, cook, act  do a little creative work every day and don’t worry so much.  


It is important to recognize that uncertainty is a natural part of life. You cannot know with absolute certainty what is going to happen next. When you release your attachment to control, it’s easier to breathe.  Some people deal with anxiety by drinking, overeating, and turning to other bad habits. However, none of these are real solutions for worrying. The best approach is to learn how to deal with your anxiety in healthy ways.

1. Work it off
Although exercise may not actually solve the issues that are causing you to feel anxious, engaging yourself in activity takes your mind off things.  You become clearer after taking a break.
2. Address your fears
Instead of suppressing your anxiety, it is important to face your fears head on. Ask yourself what is truly causing your anxiety. You may even find that your worries are mostly False Evidence Appearing Real.
3. Meditate
Meditation helps your mind with needed breaks from all that clutter.  The practice also helps you with greater focus.  You find yourself experiencing increased clarity and less likely to worry over unnecessary things.
4. Stay hydrated
Did you know that dehydration has been linked to depression? Just about every person has heard that it is important to drink enough water, but most people do not realize that their mental health actually improves when they are hydrated.
5. Change your perspective
Energy flows where you focus your attention. Understand that you can choose to focus on positive rather than negative thoughts.  In fact, as you become more positive, you’ll be better able to create more positive outcomes.
6. Relax
It’s hard not to feel bombarded living in modern times. You probably spend your days in a constant state of flux. Your heart beats a lot faster as a result. So set aside time to relax. You’ll find that your feelings of anxiety subside.
7. Seek help
You may find yourself feeling worse and worse if you are unable to stop yourself from incessant worrying.  It may be a good idea to seek counseling or to talk to someone who can help. Anxiety is very common. There is nothing to feel ashamed about when you approach for help.
The best way find relief from constant worrying is to learn to let go. Worrying does not bring you any closer to solving problems. In fact, it only makes it more difficult to find clarity.

Cultivating openness means meaning different things to different people but universally it seems to have to do with positivity. It generally includes some combination of friendliness, approachability, honesty, open-mindedness, tolerance, and personal authenticity.

Open people tend to be more happy, charismatic, likable, and successful compared to people who are "closed off." While some people are open by nature, others can learn to be more open with practice and a little mindfulness.


Start by being honest. Don't tell everyone around them what they think they want to hear. To be open, try your best to be honest about yourself and your opinions.

Speak your mind without being hurtful.

Cutting down on negativity. Being negative can also make less open.
Be skillfull about balancing honesty with negativity and cruelty.

Journaling in the morning can be a great dumping ground for negativity,

Let people know when something is bothering you.

Avoid suppressing your emotions, which can be dangerous to both your emotional health and to the relationship you may be trying to preserve.

Be open with how you feel and let that extend to your facial expressions. People who are more expressive tend to be perceived as more likable and trustworthy.


Be be yourself. Don't be too guarded about your experiences, likes, and dislikes. 

Many closed-off people have trouble when it comes to something called self-disclosure. Self-disclosure is simply talking about yourself. Self-disclosure about embarrassing or painful topics is difficult for most people, but it also helps to strengthen interpersonal relationships.

Start with small things ....mention your favorite book or what you do for a living. 

But always be selective about who you share yourself with but when you can be open.
