Quote of the Week

“Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

Ease Into Fall

August 28, 2008

As we ease into Fall we begin to go inside …….

“In stillness the world is restored” Lao Tzu

There are tremendous accounts of illness in our present day culture and yet we live in a time when health could be at an optimum level due to the knowledge and resources we have available to us. There are some key factors that are affecting our health greatly in present times and two of them are the foods we eat and our stress levels in daily life. Our food source is tremendously altered with chemicals and genetic altering. This can be easily avoided in our lives by choosing organic foods, mostly fresh fruits and vegetables and drinking more water every day.

There is a new source of drinking water that has tremendous health benefits called alkaline drinking water which is provided by a machine attached to your faucet to oxygenate the water we take in daily. The amount of processed foods we consume in our country has greatly altered our overall health status. The amount of chemical consumption in our bodies by processed foods is truly dangerous to our health. Even in our busy schedules remember that simple is healthier. Fresh is best and more water in your daily diet will make a definite difference in physical well being.

The other culprit in our decline in health is our daily stress. Stress exists and yet we create more stress and fear with our thoughts. The amount of fear based and negative thoughts we have during the day will increase blood pressure and stress our adrenals to the point of ill health. Over prolonged periods the bodies own immune system is impaired and no longer able to sustain the health levels we desire.

One simple antidote for this effect is setting time aside every day 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening to sit still and breathe deeply, in through the nose and out through the mouth. You will find the breath brings you back to the present moment instead of vaulting out into the future where we have imagined things in a negative way. This negative vision (though imagined) feels real to your emotional being and you being to feel fear, stress and or worry. All have a negative effect over time on the body. Dr. Bruce Lipton has done extensive research on our physical DNA to prove that negative thought patterns will actually make our cells deteriorate and die, whereas a positive thought which supports a high vibration will bring those same cells back to life! So thinking positive is not just a feel good moment it is a necessity for a healthy body. Our physical being depends on our emotional well being.

If we have lived traumatic experiences in our past breath work can eliminate that negative frequency from our physical body and our emotional body. EFT will release negative emotions as well from specific traumatic events from physical abuse to emotional traumas. They are two powerful tools to help us be healthy, whole and present in our own bodies.

*As you notice a negative thought passing through experiment on how you can change that thought around into a positive. Begin with gratitude and see something resolving itself positively, or a disagreement being settled, money being received, health being restored and/or a change bringing a positive new experience. Play with this, at first it may feel challenging but look at it like an exercise the more you strengthen this muscle the easier it becomes to do the work!
How would it feel to be energized, present, aware and peaceful all at the same time? When we are living at this level creating the life we choose becomes easy and graceful. All you have to do is allow yourself to receive all your good!

Come breath and choose health and radiance!

“When the act of reflection takes place in the mind, when we look at ourselves in the light of truth, we discover that our life is embosomed in beauty” Emerson
