Introduce a mindful practice with our signature necklace.
These beautiful necklaces are designed to help you connect within during moments of anxiety, overwhelm or stress, by returning your attention to the current moment, and focusing on your breathing.
The Soulful Moment Necklace helps to soothe your emotions, slow your thoughts, and calm your nervous system.
The necklace acts as an anchor and reminder. When we struggle it is usually because what is happening in the current moment is very different from what we want to happen. For example: 'I don't want to feel anxious' or 'I want the kids to do as they are told and just get into the car without fighting'. There is conflict between what we want, and what is actually happening.
After acknowledging that the present moment is different than you want it to be, the next step is to focus on the breath. Symbolically breathing in reality and breathing out expectations, can help to create space and the opportunity of responding to whatever is happening instead of reacting to it.
Accepting things as they are (not how you want them to be), offers the possibility to release control of the present moment - which provides freedom to make a different choice in that moment.
It allows you the opportunity of accepting how you are feeling, and not resisting it, so you can move forward from a place of consciousness.
Every time you look in the mirror and see the Soulful Moment Necklace around your neck, it also acts as a visual reminder to be kind to yourself. To challenge any statements and thoughts that might be self deprecating and unkind - if you wouldn’t say it to a friend then you shouldn't say it yourself.
Made with 316L Stainless Steel.
Simply flip the pendant up to place it on your bottom lip (the whistle hole will be facing up, you wear it so the whistle hole is hidden and facing your chest), then gently exhale.
Gently blow into the pendant and try to ensure the whistle make as LITTLE noise as possible.
The whistle will make no noise IF you are breathing softly, slowly and calmly. - do not put your top lip on the pendant.
If it makes a noise, that’s ok, keep gently exhaling into the whistle and notice it get quieter and quieter as your breathing calms.
Questions to ask yourself:
What am I feeling?
What am I thinking?
What am I wanting?
What am I getting?
The gap between what your expectations/wants and what you are receiving might be the answer to the stress or anxiety you are feeling.
As you use your necklace by exhaling into the pendant (as gently and smooth as you can) - you are going to focus on something different with each breath. You are going to engage your senses to help calm the fear that has been triggered.
Hear the sound the whistle makes and try to make the noise softer with each breath.
What other sounds can you hear?
Feel the smoothness of the metal between your fingers,
see if you can feel in the necklace resting on your neckline…
notice if it feels cool or warm.
What other things can you feel?
What can you see? Name 5 things that you can see as you continue to breath as calmly as you can into the pendant.
As you exhale, suspend your breath for a second and touch your tongue to the roof of your mouth - what do you taste?
What else can you taste? Anything?
As you breathe in, deepening your inhalation what can you smell?
If you also have a Soulful Moment Soothing Inhaling Scent you can use it now - otherwise what can you smell?
Imagine you can see the air going into your lungs (feel your stomach, lungs and chest expanding as you breathe in, and deflate as you exhale).
When you are physically feeling better then close your eyes for a second and check in with how you are feeling, it can help to repeat a mantra like ‘I am ok, in this moment I am ok” over and over until your inner world is feeling calmer.
