The Line of Calm

The Line of Calm fills your entire being with calm from the beginning of your time to the end of your time, whatever the beginning and the end mean to you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This easy visualization was the first I developed and I still use it almost every day. The Line of Calm has also been incorporated into many of my other visualizations.

 

The beauty of the Line of Calm is that it’s super fast, easy and versatile.

It can be done in seconds by anyone, anytime, anywhere. It can be used in the moment, when you need it. And, it can easily be adapted for your needs.

 

The more you use the Line of Calm, the faster your body reacts to it and the more impact it has.

 

How to Create Your Line of Calm

1. Your eyes can be open or closed. In front of you, imagine a straight, horizontal line. You can make the line white or green or any colour you find calming.

2. Extend your Line of Calm to the left, all the way to infinity, as you say silently: “Calm, to the beginning of my time.” You can turn your head to the left to follow the line, if it’s easier. Focus on that straight line for a moment.

3. Extend your Line of Calm to the right, all the way to infinity, as you say silently: “Calm, to the end of my time.” You can turn your head to the right to follow the line, if it’s easier. Focus on that straight line for a moment.
 
4. Say silently: "I am calm." Focus on your entire Line of Calm until it is straight and smooth. Let the calm spread to your entire being.

Once you’ve practiced it a few times, take a moment to notice how your Line of Calm feels. Your goal is a Line of Calm that feels straight, quiet and calm throughout.

 

Adaptation for the Line of Calm

The Line of Calm is a holistic technique that can be used for more than calm. If you are frustrated or angry and in need of more patience, just replace the word "calm" in the instructions above with the word "patience." For example, "Patience, to the end of my time."

 

If you are in need of courage, replace "calm" with "courage." You can adapt the Line of Calm technique to receive anything you need in that moment. My approach to healing has no limits.
