How exciting that summer has arrived and there are lots of exciting events on the horizon. School routines are all abandoned for 'fun' activities and the whole sensation of studying and education is being put on the back burner.
This is all well and good, if you are neurologically typical. You see that your hard work brings rewards of fun and celebration.
However, if your brain is wired any differently, the end of term can be a horrific affair. Not only are you about to loose all the stability that you have spent the whole of the last year managing, you are thrust into an unpredictable environment. You don't understand the dynamics or the expectations. It is scary and confusing and you don't feel safe.
You are safe.
Remember that you do not have to participate if you do not want to. You can find a place that is right for you. Speak to someone and tell them that you feel uncomfortable doing what you are requested to do. Can you think of an alternative?
Remember there is always a choice. You do not HAVE to do these things and schools and collages need to provide a place for you.
Sometimes you may want to participate, but it is just too difficult. Can you do your breathing exercises? Just breathe down right into the ground and release the breath slowly. Breathe and release, breathe and release.
To get rid of any fear that you maybe experiencing, just SCHTOP! Stop everything and just feel where you are at the moment. Feel the sensations on your body, the wind in your hair, the sounds all around you. Know that all is well in this very moment in time. Pause. And be present.
Do not allow your mind to wonder into the future. This is when most of the fear comes, when you project into the future and it is simply too much to handle. Having a change of routine, is tough. You will have to manage yourself and your emotions.
You have got this. Take things step by step. Slowly slowly.
This is the way, gently and slowly.
Know that you are able to manage situations, you are able to be flexible, you are safe, we have your back. As they say feel the fear and do it anyway.
Breath deep and trust in yourself.
If you are wanting to get something that can be of great benefit to you at this time, think of buying the remedy Walnut.
Walnut is a wonderful remedy for change, it is a protective remedy and is like carrying around a big hug with you all day.
It takes away the fear and allows you the opportunity to trust in the world and so you can participate and enjoy the fun and celebration that you quite rightly deserve.
