Sometimes it takes a unique and off-the-wall exercise to help release deeply seated emotional blockages. Alla Svirinskaya in her book Energy Secrets The Ultimate Well-Being Plan, shares the Balloon Exercise to let go of the past. She claims this exercise will help get rid of old matter which helps bring balance. You will need a pack of balloons any size or color and a needle before starting Balloon Exercise below:
1. Blow up balloon slowly. With each exhale, breathe out all the unpleasant emotions and memories you have, that you want out of your system.
2. Once balloon is fully inflated, and full of your old “stuff”, tie a knot in it.
3. Take balloon in one hand and the needle in the other. Close your eyes, breathe, and imagine a situation that has burdened you. When your emotional response becomes almost overwhelming, pop the balloon!
4. It is important not to premeditate when to pop the balloon. Let it happen almost spontaneously. If you can manage this, you will have a very powerful reaction. The sudden sound will free up the energy and push the blockage out of the aura. Keep the pack of balloons handy for more emotional release surgery!
