It is a method to release stress,
so that one becomes more relaxed and emotionally and mentally balanced.
This has its influence on the body and can prevent all kind of diseases
and is also the basic condition for each healing process.
Everybody can do this exercise and can have
great benefit from it, it doesn't matter which lifestyle one has or in
which situation or condition one is at this moment. And for sure this exercise
does not depend on one's beliefs or concepts, philosophical, religious
With the 'Stress Release Exercise' I want
to help you to enter into a state of relaxation in an easy way and that
you can learn to respond and relate to daily life situations without getting
into stress or at least that the stress which is not possible to be avoided,
can be released and doesn't accumulate.
The exercise is easy to do, you don't need
to join a group or a seminar, you can do it all by yourself and you
can start right now. There is no 'ritual' necessary, just plain information
and a clear advice - and then you just need to practice.
The information I am distributing, like
what is offered from me and FalconBlanco, is totally for free. If there
is any problem showing up, the best is you read my advice again and then
practice the exercise again. If it still doesn't seem to work, then you
can write to me using the feedback form at the end of this page and and
ask for advice, I will answer as soon as possible. .
This 'Stress Release Exercise' is available
to every body and every where, one only need to do it. You can listen to
some more thoughts watching my video
at YouTube about meditation or you can listen to the audio at this page.
If you ask me what gives me the 'credentials'
to give advice and talk here, then I can tell you that I have been doing
this exercise for about fifty years. It helped me in all kind of difficulties
and also to stay alive and healthy, or when I got sick, to heal myself.
Not only this, it gives me the calmness, security and the trust to go on,
even it seems impossible. I am convinced that due to the 'Stress Release
Exercise' I never had depressions, although there have been more than enough
reasons for it.
Seeing all the suffering around and that
there is wasted so much energy, I feel urged to share my experiences and
give freely advice about the exercise, so that people can get out of the
vicious cycles they are trapped in and so can heal themselves
and enjoy their existence and life. I am convinced that the 'Stress Release
Exercise' is the easiest and most effective way to achieve this.
is the benefit from practicing the 'Stress Release Exercise'?
Having practiced it for some time, one becomes
more relaxed and then is able to relate and respond in a different way
to whatever shows up in one's life.
By being more relaxed and not building up
tension in daily life one is able to observe in a more objective way: not
just out of ones limited conditions responding from there, but in a more
wholesome way and being able to understand better oneself, because one
gets to know oneself in all aspects of ones being. Not only this, one also
is able to understand others viewpoints and one is more effective in every
thing one is doing or trying to reach.
One gains a new attitude and a new focus
which then changes and betters one's responses. Then one might want to
change one's 'bad' habits, because one is realizing that these are not
favorable for oneself. One will become more aware and so more critical
about what one takes in or does and one can decide if this is really what
one wants. One will live healthier on all levels of one's existence. One
will not need to demonstrate anything anymore, not needing to provoke or
manipulate others to get what one wants, so being less dependent on others
and the surrounding... - Self expression will gain a new dimension.
Doing the exercise regularly one can prevent
that tension builds up, accumulated stress is released and so one is preventing
many diseases that are resulting from stress. There are much more benefits,
you will find out yourself when having practiced regularly for some time...
to do the "SRE"
You can do the 'Stress
Release Exercise' anywhere. To start with, you might choose favorable conditions.
Find a quiet place where you can be without disturbance by too much
noise or other influences. You shouldn't be under the effect of alcohol
or any kind of drugs, you shouldn't be too tired or exhausted. Sit comfortably,
if possible with a straight back, then you can begin. Twenty minutes each
time is enough, you can do it twice a day: in the morning and in the evening.
But at least once a day and this every day. Every day!! Maybe
you will need to force yourself a little bit the first few days, but then
after three weeks it will be an established habit and you will do it, not
wanting to miss it anymore.
Later on, when you
are used to the exercise, then you can do it also only for a few minutes
in-between, when you feel that you are getting into stress. For example
when you get stuck in a traffic jam or waiting in your office for
a phone call, you just close your eyes and do it...
OK, now you sit down and
close your eyes. You are comfortable? Yes. OK. Now: You don't need to do
anything, nothing at all!! You just sit there and -
you are aware of it... What means that you are aware of your body.
You are aware that you are sitting there. You might be aware of the silence
or some noise in the near or far background. But you don't do anything!
You are just aware of what is there. You don't focus or concentrate on
it, you are just aware of it, - nothing else. Then what might happen is
that you are aware of being lost in some thoughts, what means that you
went into thoughts about something, it doesn't matter what this is. That
is all right and part of the exercise. What means that you don't
want to avoid thoughts or any feelings, you don't suppress what comes up.
Just let it happen, without judging it or giving any special importance
to it. Just let it happen... and observe it. So there is a way that will
help so that you don't go constantly from one thought into another: The
moment when you are aware that you are thinking, then you
just switch to being aware of your breathing.
same: You don't focus or concentrate on your breathing, you are just aware
of it. Without wanting to do anything about it, just observe it! This might
go on for a while and then again you find yourself lost in some thoughts.
That's all right! So then you go back to observing your breathing. And
so on and on... Then it might happen that there are moments when there
are no thoughts and no awareness of yourself or your surrounding and it
seems you were falling into sleep. This too is all right, don't worry about
it, if you were really falling into sleep, then you will wake up soon,
probably you were just relaxing and needed it... Just be aware of yourself
and the state of being you are now. Maybe you are indeed more relaxed...
So you get up and go to your daily work...
What else? This
'Stress Release Exercise' is so easy to do that there shouldn't be
any difficulties practicing it. But for some people it might appear 'too
easy to be true', mostly because they have been doing similar exercises
before and these were more complicate, so now they mix up the exercises
and do things they are not ask for and then it doesn't work...
If there is any problem showing up, the best is you read my advice again
and then sit down and do the exercise again. If it still doesn't seem to
work, then you can email me by using the feedback form at the end of this
page and I will answer as soon as possible. If you are having difficulties
and you don't feel comfortable and in turn want to stop practicing the
exercise, just ask for help.
If now you are convinced
and you are practicing your exercise and you are experiencing the benefits
of it, then it might be that you want to participate in our initiative
to let others get to know about the 'Stress Release Exercise'. Just share
with your friends the link to this page or print the text out if they don't
have Internet access...
