When you have a hot flash, what do you usually do, well if you are alone you tear off whatever layer of clothes you are wearing off as fast as you can. Right? Then you cool down and on goes the shirt again. What I have been playing with is an energy practice that can redirect the flow and allow for your hot flashes to dissipate.
Here is what I have noticed, heat rises we all know that, and when it does, your face and body flush with the release of that heat. But what I have been working with myself and my clients is to use the mind to shift the energy and instead of having it flash up and out the top of your head as it normally does, you can imagine that it rushes up and then, here’s the twist, see if flow back down again.
Just see the energy become like a fountain of cool water washing over your head and neck, down your shoulders, arms, chest, pelvis and legs and back into the earth. This will cool the energy and it will also ground the energy and connect you to the earth again.
This is important because when we stop bleeding the natural flow of energy moving down and out of our bodies is reversed.
I suspect that that is why woman are stricken by more heart symptoms after menopause. The energy rises up and floods the heart and the heart is overwhelmed by this new amount of energy that is often unfamiliar. So the heart flutters and you experience palpitations and a rapid heart beat from the excess energy.
So if we can begin to imagine the energy flowing down again and see it flowing back down your body and into the earth this can help regulate the abundance of energy you feel as it rises with each hot flash.
PS One other thing I have found is that mint tea is a great remedy. It is very cooling and soothing to an oftentimes raw nervous system.
Hope this helps.
