Michelle Barrial (06:06):
So really we have this energy flowing through us and then there's energy all around us in our environment. So you're really connecting to that universal energy. And what you're doing is you're acting as a channel so that the energy flows through you. And that's where you can sense if there's blockages in the person's, I call it their highway, their bio highway. So if you can sense that there's a blockages much like traffic it's blocked sometimes and backed up, it's the same way with our body. So when you can sense that there's a blockage in the area due to a physical symptom, or again, due to some kind of spiritual or mental block, then what I do is just transmit the energy through myself that I channeled it as a channel. And then that's when I can feel that it starts to break up or sort of dissolve, I could feel and have that sensation that it's, it's opening up the channel.
Michelle Barrial (17:42):
So our conscious mind is what we're in most of the time, but in reality, our subconscious mind is the mind where your memory is longterm memories, part of where your imagination is. So, and it's also where you have a lot of beliefs from childhood traumas and things that you don't remember that come up that are still affecting you today as an adult.
Michelle Barrial (40:02):
So in my book, I talk about the ways that you can create a healthy life, body minded spirit. So I talk about how to relax physically like mind hacks for sleeping. I talk about breathing how important it is to, to maintain your breath control, particularly when your emotions try to take over, and then you wanna help yourself to be calm again and, and feel like you're not losing control, but rather that you're are in control of your emotions. So I teach steps in there for breathing with a few exercises.
