Hello, hello, and welcome to the Borealis

Unknown:

experience. I’m your host Aurora, life coach and companion

Unknown:

on this beautiful journey called life. I’m so happy to be

Unknown:

spending some moments with you today. And so proud of you, you

Unknown:

can be so proud of yourself for making the time to rest and

Unknown:

recharge and deeply connect to yourself. The mission of this

Unknown:

podcast is to provide you with a space where you feel safe,

Unknown:

understood and supported. Also know that you can always reach

Unknown:

out to me and request episodes. And as I said at the beginning,

Unknown:

I’m a life coach. So I offer specific programs for people who

Unknown:

want to live a more content life, a life more true to

Unknown:

themselves. Also, if you have a minute, please review my podcast

Unknown:

on Apple podcasts, it means so much in the podcast world to

Unknown:

have people express what they feel and what they received and

Unknown:

the feedback about a podcast for other people to find out if this

Unknown:

is something for them. And I want to reach out to as many

Unknown:

people as possible as bashley. Now after the pandemic, there’s

Unknown:

a lot of people struggling with anxiety, mental health,

Unknown:

depression, and I just want to be of support to whoever needs

Unknown:

an embrace support of this sword. Today I want to talk

Unknown:

about nervousness. Last episode was about anxiety, how to feel

Unknown:

less anxious. And today, we will hear the quad of my grandma in

Unknown:

the background. And I will be talking about how to feel less

Unknown:

nervous, which is pretty much in alignment for part two of last

Unknown:

episode. I want you to know that you have all the tools, all the

Unknown:

resources that you need in order to feel confident in order to be

Unknown:

successful and content in life. And also when it comes to

Unknown:

anxiety and self doubt, insomnia, like all these things

Unknown:

that come up at times that make us feel as if we’re not moving

Unknown:

forward, we’re not growing, we keep falling back to anxiety we

Unknown:

feel falling back into depression. And yeah, we feel

Unknown:

like we’re not making any progress at all, please know

Unknown:

that growth and moving forward doesn’t happen in a linear way.

Unknown:

It’s not an ongoing process. Sometimes you got to stop and

Unknown:

have a break and recuperate. Reflect. Sometimes you have to

Unknown:

think about a new paths because maybe you’re not on the perfect

Unknown:

path that is right for you. So imagine growth like an upward

Unknown:

spiral. And you’re slowly working your way up. And on your

Unknown:

path on this spiraling path you will encounter the things the

Unknown:

feelings, the habits, the situation that you are trying to

Unknown:

liberate yourself from. And I want you to see those as little

Unknown:

obstacles, but more as tests. If you learn to shift your mindset

Unknown:

that a little setback, falling back into the self self pattern,

Unknown:

again that you want to get rid of so desperately shift your

Unknown:

mindset and see it as a test instead of a setback instead of

Unknown:

you simply not moving forward. And you will see that every time

Unknown:

you encounter a test.

Unknown:

You will have a different mindset you will have a

Unknown:

different experience and slowly but surely every time you’re

Unknown:

going to meet that test You’re gonna do better, you’re gonna be

Unknown:

more confident and you’re gonna be able to cut through your own

Unknown:

bullshit in order through to gracefully navigate through your

Unknown:

little obstacles that you keep encountering. So let’s talk

Unknown:

about nervousness today. I always love to see anxiety and

Unknown:

nervousness, as something good. It serves a purpose clearly. And

Unknown:

maybe it doesn’t serve a purpose today anymore, but it did at

Unknown:

some point in your life, something happened to you got

Unknown:

disappointed, you got hurt, you got traumatized. And this

Unknown:

anxiety now is there to protect you from future pain and

Unknown:

distress. What you can learn in the present moment is to kind of

Unknown:

detach from that anxiety and nervousness. And imagine putting

Unknown:

it outside of yourself. So let’s, for instance, put it in

Unknown:

your left hand, your palm is facing up to the sky, and you

Unknown:

put your anxiety your nervousness into your hand. Of

Unknown:

course, if you’re a super rational, logical person, now

Unknown:

you will feel challenged, you will tell me Aurora, I can’t see

Unknown:

my anxiety be put into my hand. But then I, I want to ask you,

Unknown:

please pretend, just pretend that you could take your anxiety

Unknown:

out of your body, because it is most of the time a strong

Unknown:

physical sensation, and thoughts that come up and put it in a

Unknown:

little box and put this box into your hand. And now we want to

Unknown:

ask it, what is your purpose? What are you trying to protect

Unknown:

me from. And if you picture yourself in a situation now

Unknown:

where anxiety nervousness comes up, but you actually don’t need

Unknown:

that anxiety and nervous isn’t anymore, because you are in a

Unknown:

safe place, now you are further on your path in life, away from

Unknown:

the traumatizing event from back then where you needed the

Unknown:

anxiety and the nervousness. And you actually find out without

Unknown:

this nervousness, I’m actually very good. I feel safe. Yes, I

Unknown:

have a person sitting in front of me that I don’t know. I’m in

Unknown:

a situation that is new to me. But I’m actually learning I love

Unknown:

the challenge. I’m going to grow, I’m going to feel more

Unknown:

confident, if I decide to sit through the situation now. Then

Unknown:

if I was to give into my anxiety, my nervousness, and

Unknown:

just falter and kind of deflate, like, like a balloon. So the

Unknown:

little exercise here is to detach from your anxiety. And

Unknown:

with your conscious mind, ask yourself, do you actively need

Unknown:

it? Or can you slowly let go of your nervousness? The second

Unknown:

exercise I want to share with you today is to coming back to

Unknown:

your breath. Most of the time, if not all of the time. If you

Unknown:

feel anxious, chances are you have what if thoughts, worst

Unknown:

case scenario, thought disastrous thoughts. Because

Unknown:

this is what your mind is designed to do. It is designed

Unknown:

to protect you. But sometimes it is trying to protect you from

Unknown:

things that are not really you know, dangerous, that are not a

Unknown:

threat. They were maybe when you were two years old, but now

Unknown:

you’re not two years old anymore. Now you can make a

Unknown:

conscious choice of if you feeling safe or not. And if you

Unknown:

don’t feel safe, get the heck out of the situation. But if

Unknown:

not, ask your anxiety, your nervousness, to turn the volume

Unknown:

down and tell yourself that you are in a good position now

Unknown:

you’re safe. So if your anxiety brings you into these what ifs

Unknown:

thoughts, disastrous thoughts,

Unknown:

then you’re not being in the present moment. You are out

Unknown:

there somewhere and people probably can notice that too.

Unknown:

That yes, you sit in front of them. You answer to their

Unknown:

question, you make the random AHA Yes. I understand. But they

Unknown:

can feel that you’re not present because your nervousness, your

Unknown:

anxiety, is at the steering wheel. Now, if you come back to

Unknown:

your breath, come back to the present moment. See what you see

Unknown:

in the moment, right in front of you. Hear what you hear, in the

Unknown:

moment, right around you. Feel the chair and turn underneath

Unknown:

your buttocks. Feel your feet touching the ground, feel your

Unknown:

hand, gripping a pen, holding a cup of glass, a cup of water,

Unknown:

sorry, or laying comfortably. on a on a table, maybe your hand,

Unknown:

your forearm is resting on a table. So this is something that

Unknown:

you can do on a regular basis. When you feel your mind is

Unknown:

getting ahead of you. You’re getting anxious, nervous,

Unknown:

just come back to your breath. Deep inhale. And then exhale.

Unknown:

And feel what you feel. See what you see, hear what you hear be

Unknown:

in

Unknown:

the present moment. Your breath is also one of the most powerful

Unknown:

tools because it is something that you can control. And it is

Unknown:

something that runs unconsciously in the background

Unknown:

without you having to control it. So if you take your

Unknown:

heartbeat, for instance, that’s something that you can influence

Unknown:

by exercising, or getting nervous or being super calm. But

Unknown:

you can’t control your heartbeat, your breath, you can

Unknown:

control. And your breath is your deepest connector between your

Unknown:

mind and your body. And as you learned in the first season of

Unknown:

my podcast, and if you haven’t gone through the first season of

Unknown:

this podcast, I encourage you to do this because there’s a build

Unknown:

up in connecting with yourself. There’s a buildup, you have to

Unknown:

start with your body first. So go back to season one and go

Unknown:

through my episodes there and learn about your body. Learn how

Unknown:

important your breath is and how important it is to stay

Unknown:

connected to yourself at all times, especially if you want to

Unknown:

grow out of habits that are not good for you anymore. If you

Unknown:

want to get out of relationships that are not good anymore. If

Unknown:

you want to attract people that are good for you, you have to

Unknown:

know yourself first. And it starts with your body. So coming

Unknown:

back to your breath, your breath is your strongest tool.

Unknown:

Especially when you’re anxious, especially when you get nervous

Unknown:

around people to come back to yourself and to calm your

Unknown:

nervous system down. The more steady and calm your nervous

Unknown:

system is, the more clear and in a healthy way your mind can

Unknown:

serve you. If you put your body into a state of stress with

Unknown:

shallow breathing and holding your breath, which is what we do

Unknown:

when we are anxious, then it’s a vicious cycle because then your

Unknown:

mind is not able to think clearly because you put your

Unknown:

mind and your body into survival mode. Now doing this backwards,

Unknown:

you have deep breathing you have connecting your senses to the

Unknown:

present moment. And I promise you that you can get your

Unknown:

anxiety levels down and your confidence muscle flexed without

Unknown:

too much effort. All right, I’m gonna leave you with this.

Unknown:

Please share with people you care. Please share if I was able

Unknown:

to bring you value and you just want to help other people to

Unknown:

feel less anxious if you’re not an anxious person. Sorry, but

Unknown:

you know people who struggle with anxiety and nervousness

Unknown:

then do them a favor, be a good friend and share around. Thank

Unknown:

you so much for being here. I appreciate you so much. I’m so

Unknown:

happy to connect with you on You keep basis if not on a daily

Unknown:

basis. You’re amazing and I’m very proud to be able to serve

Unknown:

you. Until next time,
