The Value Of Self Love

Love is a healing force. We may not be able to see love with our eyes, but often feel the vibration of love as it descends. Love in action is indeed a force to behold. Unconditional love is a builder of miracles. It is My view that love resides within us, waiting to be released and shared. We block love when We allow fear, anger and judgement to prevail in Our  thinking. We choose not to trust or believe in the good around us.  Family traditions may create or break a person’s self esteem The school yard is often full of bullies. Sophisticated and jaded friends may feel love is a  sham. Popular culture often distorts the value of a positive self image. Is it  any wonder We feel We need to search for love out side of the self.

Where there is love there is hope. Where there is love there is a flicker of light ready to ignite into an explosion of joy. We seek love outside of Ourselves,  We chase it like an escaped  bird in flight.  However love is built from within. Remove the barriers You have built, one by one. This is an important process. Take time to unravel any baggage wrapped around the body, mind and spirit..  As You seek answers for Yourself, consider the following book  You Can Heal Your Life . written  by  the great metaphysical healer, author and publisher, Lousie L Hay.  I have found this book to be  very valuable resource. I often keep an extra copy of this book to share with a friend or a client.

YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE

As an empath, I feel energy and thought forms of people around Me. I have discovered  and studied many ways to create a protective energy field around me. Because of this I am able to feel vibrations of love and peace around me. I often clear the energy in My treatment room or home using Reiki. There are many ways to clear heavy stagnant energy in a room. Physically cleaning the room is a good strategy. I like to do this using natural cleaning products.  After this is accomplished, open the window to let in some fresh air.

In all of Her work, Louise L. Hay emphasised the importance of self love and self acceptance. This is something We all need to consider. Self love is not an egotistical indulgence. If love is to grow from within, self love is a seed planted in Our hearts. Love requires nourishment to grow and flourish. This requires practice, patience and persistence as We weed out the influence of the negative ego, along with any other negative programming. As You start this journey You may feel as though You are meeting Your true self for the very first time.  As You untangle emotional traumas,  You may  feel lighter and happier.The workbook pictured above is an excellent resource for accomplishing this. Self discovery is a valuable and wonderful journey.

Healing From Within

Our emotions, thoughts and words leave an imprint. People around us digest the energy We are projecting.  To start on a journey toward wellness and balance, our thoughts and words must support this objective. Common sense demonstrates nutritious food, exercise and relaxation may promote and improve health. We chose to avoid  saboteurs of health –  alcohol, drug , and smoking. Stress, a poor diet, and sleep deprivation tear away at the body.

It is all too easy to be swept up in a current of worry, anger and fear, by simply  watching the news. Violence and corruption appear on every street corner, around the globe.  In this regard it is important to strike a balance between being well informed and subjecting mind, body and spirit to excessive violence. Be aware viewing excessive violence second hand, on television or social media has an effect on emotional and physical health. Watching stressful scenes may signal  the release of stress hormones. After watching a suspense movie, You may find it difficult to fall asleep. Be a selective viewer. Sometimes the energy around us is overwhelming. Read more in the article below:

How To Clear The Energy In A Room

Self examination is a crucial step towards creating  a healthy environment. Examine all emotions, thoughts, and feelings. Embark on this process to discover what is truly holding You hostage. Keep a journal of thoughts, feelings and emotions. This provides a valuable outlet. Institutions  often discourage the free expression of feelings and emotions. Record any physical sensations along with any other information.  For women dealing with issues of hormone balance, menopause,  or PMS, this is a valuable tool. At a later date You may choose to share this information with a doctor. Include sensations such as breast tenderness, spotting, or  restless sleep.   If You are under emotional trauma, do not hesitate to seek professional  counselling and guidance. Alternatively, talk to a friend or family.  Cognitive Behavoural Therapy  (CBT) is an excellent option.  For more information on stress read My article –

How Stress Affects Our Health

It is important to acknowledge Our true feelings. Accept thoughts, and emotions. This process of this introspection is not to judge. Acceptance does not mean resignation, rather it is a tool for moving forward. Facing fear and doubt is necessary to move past fear and doubt. As emotional baggage is released, and refiled,  You may begin to feel lighter and happier. This is an ongoing exercise. It is OK to express Yourself. It is OK  to be who You would really like to be. Self acceptance is a milestone to celebrate. To be different is to be unique. I would like to recommend one of My  favourite books authored by Louise L. Hay. This book is an incredible resource. I often keep an extra copy of it to share with My Clients.

How Stress Affects Our Health

Stress is an undeniable element today. Each person is affected in a  different way. Emotional trauma creates an unstable environment. The mind  often works overtime, with thoughts racing through our heads. Worries and responsibilities compound. How and why does this happen?

The human anatomy  has a “flight or fight” response to danger. It is this physiological  response  that has allowed us to evolve through the ages. When danger threatens us, the physical body responds. During a natural disaster or a political upheaval this ability to respond literally saves lives. The “fight or flight” response is  called  hyperarousal, or alternatively,  the acute stress response.  When danger subsides, there is no longer a need to be on high alert. Modern day stress continue to activate this response.  Mental health clinicians  recommend tai chi , breathwork. and visualization  techniques to combat chronic stress.

There are many medical conditions that can manifest through the stress portal. Diabetes, thyroid imbalance, hypertension, migraine headaches, and digestive disorders are but a few. A medical diagnosis conducted with a doctor will determine results. Your  doctor may also recommend further diagnostic treatments, x-rays, or ultrasound, or provide a referral for appointment with a professional dietitian, psychologist, or physiotherapist.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a fantastic  tool available to combat depression and anxiety.  CBT differs from traditional psychotherapy. The CBT model is based on the idea that thought distortion and maladaptive behavior are a factor in the development of psychological  disorders. This modality focuses on building coping strategies to deal with stress, along with changing unhelpful thought patterns. It is an action based therapy, focused on transforming thought and behavior patterns. CBT has proven effective in the treatment of depression, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and eating disorders.

Talking about our problems is important. Holding feelings in creates tension and disease in the physical body.  Connecting with others may offer strength, courage, and hope. Friends and family may have good intentions when listening to problems. All too often, we are told to “get over it”, “stop feeling sorry for ourselves”, or “forget about it, and move on”.  Our institutions program us further – We are taught and encouraged to do as we are told, be quiet and behave. A qualified therapist may be able to suggest additional strategies and solutions. There is great value in talking to a professional counselor.

Self expression is an part of daily life. Writing, drawing, or painting offer an avenue of self discovery. Learn to play a musical instrument. Make time in a busy schedule to pursue interests and hobbies.  Discover the creative capacity within. Express feelings and emotions in a constructive way.

Cultivate healthy lifestyle choices. Create a wellness plan before stress creates imbalances in the body. An excellent place to start is with a healthy and regular meal plan. Fresh air, exercise, and sunshine are good for you. Take time out  to relax with meditation or yoga. Consider holistic therapies such as Reflexology or Reiki. Make sure to get a good night’s sleep. Avoid the use of tobacco, alcohol and recreational drugs.
