365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 125: What Are You Looking Forward To?

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Is there something that you are looking forward to? Is there anything scheduled later during this year that makes you feel excited? Something that you are planning or have been dreaming of for some time?

When you are excited and are genuinely looking forward to an event, such as a vacation to a wonderful place or a gathering with people you love and who love you, starting a business or changing your career, your system is flushed with hormones that improve your health and vitality. You are also sending your energy forward with excitement, positive expectation and optimism. As a result, life seems to flow with more ease and things get easier.

The opposite is also true, when you have nothing to anticipate and be excited about, or worse still, when you are dreading the upcoming events, the stress hormones released in your body diminish your well-being and can seriously damage your health; especially as your life situation stays the same over a long period of time. When you have nothing to look forward to, days seem to drag slowly one after the other, you wake up and don’t feel like starting your day, obstacles seem to be around every corner and life seems hard.

So my question for you today is: “What are you looking for in the next three months, six months, nine months? Anything?”.

If you have nothing to feel excited about, I want you to make a decision right now to start planning something next week. Decide what that is, choose a time frame and then start writing down the steps that will get you there.

The reason things stay the same and nothing exciting happens is because people do not take the time to envision and plan for a change.

So ask yourself what would bring you joy and excitement and then start moving in  that direction.

Do not say that you have no time or no money. The resources you will need will come to you as you send your desires into the Universe.

Send the desire out.

Make a plan.

Take the first step.

Then take the next.

Feel your excitement grow.

Start to notice the changes in your life.

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 124: Being YOU

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

I want you to be content with being YOU.

I want you to feel peace inside your mind, calmness within your emotional body, connection with your spiritual self, health in your physical body, balance and clarity in your energetic field. This is my pure, heart felt desire for you, because I want you to feel free, to unleash your beauty and your creative powers and to contribute your genius to the world!

From what I see everyday, most people are in such internal turmoil that nothing seems to work in their lives the way they truly want. Because they are consumed by their inner struggles they are too exhausted to ignite great transformation in their lives.

Healing your body, finding your perfect partner, healing your relationships, creating a successful and thriving business, clearing old hurt and pain, living with joy and with purpose require your energy, concentration and determination. If you are drained and worn out by fighting with yourself, you have no resources for creating your life your way.

What if you stop criticizing yourself, blaming yourself for one thing or another, judging and condemning your thoughts, your looks or your choices?

What if you start approving of yourself more?

What if you contemplate the possibility of being even content with yourself sometime soon?

How’s that sound?

Think about it.

What if?

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 123: Want Answers? Be OK With Not Having Them!

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

This is a very interesting fact: finding out what to do next, what path to take from now on or getting the solution you are looking for depends on how comfortable you are with not knowing.

Sounds paradoxical? It is not.

I know how you feel if you are under pressure to know what your next step will be. I know the feeling very well, because I used to toss and turn and drive myself exhausted by trying to figure out what I was supposed to do in various situations. I’ve learned a lot since those days of continuous turmoil.

What I found out is this: the more I relaxed into not knowing the answers just yet, the more I released resistance; and because I releases resistance what I wanted to know was revealed to me.

Try it. Relax. Start accepting that it is OK to not know for a while. Releasing resistance towards the “not knowing” state allows you be in a receptive state, where you are not going against the current of life and therefore solutions and answers are able to come to you with less obstacles.

Eckhart Tolle says:

“Being at ease with not knowing is crucial for answers to come to you.”

If you find it hard to accept and believe, start with what I always advise you to start with: take a first step; think of the first level you can accept and go from there. For example, start by saying to yourself: “Well, I do not believe this ‘feeling at ease with not knowing’ concept, but maybe I’ll read more about it; in the meantime, I will accept the fact that it works for other people. And if it works for them, maybe it can work for me as well. It would sure be nice to feel less stressed out in situations when I do not know what to do yet.”

As I always say: start somewhere.

Accept that there might be something that will work better, even if you haven’t heard about it before.

Entertain the new idea.

Contemplate the possibility, as Dr. Wayne Dyer says.

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 122: Your Spiritual Body

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Spirituality… Religion… Atheism… Or anything else that is in between… No one way is the right way, the only way. I have met atheists who are kind, centered, believe in the spirit of the humankind and conduct themselves in a truly authentic manner. I am sure you met them too. On the other hand, I have met people who are religious or spiritual and like to gossip, to get ahead of their fellow humans by all means necessary, who lie if it serves their purposes.

So I say that it does not matter what category we choose to adhere to, as long as we are authentic, we live our lives with integrity inside and out and we respect ourselves, all people and all living things. We might decide to go to church, or to chant mantras every Sunday and yet, disrespect ourselves and others. Or we might proclaim ourselves atheists and live lives of meaning and purpose, serving other people and leaving a powerful legacy as we pass on.

What I call the Spiritual Body is that part of you that has the choice. Will you choose to tell the truth or lie? Will you choose to be kind and compassionate or judgmental? Will you choose to treat yourself with respect or will you continue to use diminishing words towards yourself and others?

You can always raise above the current situation and think, act and behave with authenticity and integrity. You can always choose kinder words, softer actions, even when you feel hurt. YOU can always choose.

Your Spiritual Body is the part of you that knows the way.

Listen to it.

Pay attention.

Follow it.

Always.

Love,

Rucsandra,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 121: Your Mental Body

“Thoughts become things… Choose the good ones.”

says the author Mike Dooley .

May I recommend you read his book “Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living Your Dreams”?

What are you thinking right now? Stop for a second and find out. What is your dominant thought? Is it an uplifting, positive, good thought or a negative, judgmental, diminishing thought? Find out. It is important. Why? Because what you think shapes your life. So, if you desire something different from what you are currently experiencing in your life, you must change how you think. Nothing will change until you are able to think different thoughts.

In order to shift the way you think so that you can create what you truly desire, you must first become aware of your thoughts. So, I want to extend and invitation to you to start monitoring your thoughts more closely. Write your thoughts down throughout the day; carry one little notebook with you for this very purpose.

Does it seem like a lot of work? Well, think about how much work it is to have a job you don’t like, to be in a relationship that does not work for you, to not have things happen the way you desire. Isn’t being unfulfilled and unhappy more work than just learning to pay attention to what you think?

In this little video, Louise Hay is explaining why it is important to learn how to think.

Start here.

Accept that it might help if you knew what you were thinking; if you paid attention to your thought patterns.

This very first step will bring extraordinary awareness.

From that awareness vantage point you will be able to start making changes.

That sounds good, doesn’t it?

Get ready to have a say in what you choose to experience in your life.

Love,

Rucsandra,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 120: Your Energetic Body

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Your body emits an electromagnetic field. This is not news anymore. Measurable and distinct, this electromagnetic field has different readings when your body experiences disease, injuries or illness.

This is an excerpt from www.pemfglobal.com.

“An electromagnetic field is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. Many things including the earth, our bodies and electronics emit these fields. Their interaction is called electromagnetism.

Like our planet, all natural things emit electromagnetic fields. When the fields produced by our bodies interact with the earth’s field we have more vitality or find that our pains no longer ail us. 

Man-made electromagnetic fields from cellphone towers, wi-fi and other electronic devices operate at higher levels and can make us feel lethargic or worse, develop chronic health issues.

PEMF therapy balances your electromagnetic field by transmitting pulsed electromagnetic frequencies tuned to the earth that counteract the negative fields caused by our environment, leaving you feeling alive and well.”

PEMF Therapy is a powerful and extremely effective method that will aid your healing efforts. There are many testimonials on www.pemfglobal.com, so if you are researching ways to heal your body, take the time to read some of them. Recently, Health Canada certified this PEMF device as a medical device.

I have been using this amazing technology for myself and with my clients for six years, with great results. I am thrilled to be part of a remarkable company (Swissbionic Solutions) whose goal is to change the world of healthcare.

If you want to know how this technology can help you, contact me. If you have questions and would like more information about PEMF devices, send me an email info@mitreawellness.com.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 119: Your Emotional Body

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Think of your emotional body as an aspect or a level of who you are. Your capacity to have an extraordinary array of feelings is deeply embedded in who you are as a human being. We all have this capacity, whether we acknowledging its existence and power or not. We are equipped to feel the most subtle variations of joy and anger, pain and love, hope and despair. It is part of who we are. Also part of our makeup is the capacity to process our feelings, to allow them to run their course and to release them. I wrote about Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor’s 90 Second Rule in my post on Day 9. She determined that it takes only 90 seconds to have an emotional circuit triggered, ignite the physiological response through the body and then flush it completely out of the system. The emotional body is intelligent and efficient.

The most remarkable link between your physical body and your emotional body lies in this very capacity to process at the physical level every single feeling that you have and to fully release it. This is also the greatest weakness, because if you continue to hold on to past feelings of anger, shame, pain, guilt or any other diminishing feelings, your physical body will eventually be put as risk. The physical body cannot become the long-term container for such feelings because it is not equipped for it.

Are there any feelings that diminish your vitality and your life force? Are you holding on to anger, shame, blame, feeling like a victim, hate, guilt or any other feeling as such?

Are you ready to move on and create a healthy, vibrant, joyous life for yourself? Write down the past hurts and unresolved pains, let them pour out of your system and onto the paper. That is the first, most powerful step that you can take: bringing these feelings out in the open. You can only clear and release feelings that you  you are willing to admit you have.

Write them down and the paper will take away some of the heaviness that you feel.

Put this list together with the list you created yesterday.

Breathe.

These are your first few steps to change your body and your life.

Love,

Rucsandra,
