sometimes I listen to little love songs and little sappy romance tunes and I start thinking about how happy Ren/Kuon and Kyoko could be together. Like imagine their future if they ever finally end up as a couple. Like the two of them barefoot on the couch reading over their script notes after a dinner Kyoko orchestrated. The genuine joy and a new romantic lack of inhibitions for Ren and cozy little moments and reassurances and love AAND
Fear comes from the heart. If ever you feel overcome by dread of some illness or accident, you should inhale and exhale deeply, slowly, and rhythmically several times, relaxing with each exhalation. This helps the circulation to become normal. If your heart is truly quiet you cannot feel fear at all.
I feel awful right now, I feel like i want to burst into tears and i feel like i can't breath even though im pretty sure i am fine. What do i do?
I’m so sorry you’re feeling this way, I’m hoping my advice helps!
Let’s do some deep breathing to help calm you down… Breathe in through your nose and count 1… 2… 3… then let your breathe out through your mouth for 1…2…3…4… This should help you remain calm and it also helps by relaxing. Everything is going to be okay, I promise!
Something I’d like you to know love, is that crying doesn’t make you weak or any less of a person. Crying is a natural sign of a strong emotion. Letting your tears flow is okay, but what’s important is how you pick yourself back up from those sad times.
Take care and don’t forget to smile because you’re beyond amazing! :)
Sit comfortably, where you won’t be disturbed for a few minutes.
Become aware of your breath.
Now, deliberately choose to take some air in.
And then before you let it out, take some more air in, and before you let it out, take another sip in. Breathe in more, breathe in more, breathe in more. And when you think that you cannot breathe in any more - take in one more sip of air.
Then experience the deliciousness of a long, easy out, out, out.
As you concentrate on your breath, you are not concentrating on other things. And in the absence of resistance, you are also allowing an alignment of energy in your body. Breath is the current that carries the vitality to the cells in your entire body. By breathing deeply, you allow oxygen to reach the extremities of your cells.
As you practice taking in more air deliberately, more consistently, you will also begin to do it more involuntarily. You will expand your lung capacity and you will naturally begin to breathe more deeply.
The deeper the breath, the further the reach. The deeper the breath, the further the reach, the better your body works. Metabolism works better, elimination works better, clarity works better, blood flows better. And so, the more you breathe, the more you thrive.
Deep belly breathing increases lung capacity, increases oxygenation throughout the body, strengthens your immune system, and helps relieve stress.
Try counting to 8 as you breath in deeply and slowly through the nose, really contract the belly,
hold for a count of 4 & feel the pressure on the upper abdomen and spinal cord,
exhale for a count of 8 as you release all the intense thoughts and negative emotions
Try this for 4-8 cycles
Have you been stressed out? Crazy world got you down? Stuck in bad traffic? Late for an appointment? Don’t fret. Sometimes the best thing that you can do for your body during stressful times is to BREATHE DEEPLY. Deep inhalation…..deep exhalation…..Deep inhalation…..deep exhalation. Give it a try! What do you have to lose?? -JR
@viennainspringtime Honestly, Author!Nikola was kind of a convenient infodump device, but also he would totally go “No, no you have it all wrong!” and write a book, and the Book will pop up again at least once or twice. Not giving out any spoilers… ;) But here, have some more begrudging bonding and subtle flirting and Angst and Nikola very definitely having a crush. :D Also can I just say THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE FLAILING it’s so very lovely and very much appreciated. <3<3<3
Contains: wine (c’mon, this is Teslen), lots of mentions of death, vampires and associated mentions of drinking blood, arguments, moral debates? (I hope I do okay with gray areas and stuff like this), angst
“So all of time and all of space, sitting out there in a big blue box.”
I love seeing how the Doctor’s invitations went from shyly hopeful that she intends to stay with him, to enticing her with the wonders he can show her, to just flat out begging her to come away with him.
