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.

Align Your Spine, Align Your Life

The condition of the spine is crucial to our overall health and well being. Health and flexibility of the spine is crucial to complete and total health. Yoga is an excellent modality to build,  or maintain spinal health. The spine  protects the spinal cord, the nerve roots, and internal organs. The nervous system is sensitive to vibration, sound and weather. Pay attention to any pain or discomfort. Yoga is a wonderful holistic system to improve  every aspect of your lifestyle . The word Yoga means “union”.  The objective  of Yoga is to align  mind, body, and spirit. I have used Yoga personally for many years. Yoga  is practical and does not require any special equipment. The study of Yoga includes learning to breath properly. The practice of breath work improves health, vitality, and the emotional balance of the body.
