DAY 260: Sharing My Thoughts In A Great Book

Holistic Wellness In The New Age

More than a year ago Dr. Sandeep Goswami from The LightWorks Publishing asked me if I would like to write an article for a book that would present different holistic approaches to wellness and explore the subject of energy medicine. I was of course thrilled and immediately accepted.

Later on I found out that one of the invited authors was a scientist whose books and interviews have taught and inspired me for many years. His books ignited a great transformation in myself and redirected my understanding of life in general. The internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit, Dr. Bruce Lipton himself was going to contribute to this book.

I am deeply honored by this remarkable opportunity to share my thoughts in the same book as Dr. Lipton.

“Holistic Wellness In The NewAge” – A Comprehensive Guide To NewAge Healing Practices: Tools, techniques & real life stories by over 45 accomplished master facilitators.

“Holistic Wellness In The NewAge” showcases various therapies in the mind, body & soul domain. The book covers various topics contributed by accomplished healers who have been practicing NewAge Therapies.

The book will be released at the NewAge Conference on Energy Medicine & Holistic Wellness organized jointly by NewAge Wellness World & The NewAge Foundation scheduled in 2015.

It is a bestseller by birth with over 1500 copies ordered before the launch.

I am excited.

I am grateful.

Love,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 218: Are You Feeling Pain Or Are You Suffering?

suffering

Suffering and pain are very different things.

The physical body is fully equipped to heal and release pain. I have witnessed this process in my clients countless times throughout the years. Even when the actual pain sensation is acute, sharp and intense, it can dissipate quite quickly; that is, if the body is allowed to do what it knows.

Now, falling down a ladder and breaking a few ribs will be painful, of course.

What I am talking about is the fact that in the absence of fear and panic, the physical sensation of pain diminishes considerably.

Suffering is something different altogether. Suffering is the hidden culprit behind chronic pain; it is the vicious circle that must be broken so that the body can heal.

Pain is not the same as suffering. Left to itself, the body discharges pain spontaneously, letting go of it the moment that the underlying cause is healed. Suffering is pain that we hold on to. It comes from the mind’s mysterious instinct to believe that pain is good, or that it cannot be escaped, or that the person deserves it.” ― Deepak Chopra, The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life

Is your body in pain?

Ask yourself if deep inside, you are suffering.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 217: Mens Sana In Corpore Sano

body and mind

The cells in your body react to everything your mind says. Negative thinking and attitudes create chronic stress that upsets the body’s hormonal balance. Negativity is known to bring down the immune system.

Negative thinking is more destructive than you think. It can ruin your brain, body and overall health on the long term.

Traditional Chinese Medicine associates emotional conflicts/negativity to specific organ functions:

  • The heart can be affected by excess excitement
  • The kidneys can be affected by fear or shock
  • The lungs can be affected by sadness or suppressed grief
  • The spleen and pancreas can be affected by worry or pensiveness
  • The liver can be affected by anger or frustration

Ancient Greek Medicine considered the mind and the body as being strongly interconnected.  The ancient Greeks ideal of health was holistic and is expressed in the maxim, “Mens sana in corpore sano”, which means “A sound mind in a healthy body”.

Native American Medicine promotes mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Traditional healing includes a wide range of activities to improve well-being and restore the balance of a person’s mind, body and spirit, which is necessary for healing. They also say that diseases are more likely to invade the body of a person who is imbalanced, has negative thinking, or lives an unhealthy lifestyle.

Change your mind. Change your body.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 208: Make It Happen!

shutterstock_186527588Do you believe that unless you started exercising when younger and more energetic, you have no chance of returning to a state of well-being?

Some of the physical changes that impede the freedom of movement in the joints might be considered to be irreversible (degenerated discs, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, etc.), but if you believe that nothing can be done to alleviate the discomfort created by these conditions then nothing will help.

I have seen dramatic changes in strength and mobility, stability and stamina in clients of all ages and varying degrees of health.

What made these changes possible was their decision to start believing in the possibility of a better state of health.

They decided that they had control over their bodies. They took responsibility for their own health. They refused to fall victim to conditions they were told would continue to deteriorate their joints, their tissues and their spines.

They claimed their birthright to health.

They made it happen. And it all started with the decision to take the helm.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 207: Emotional Health And Your Spine

emotions

Do you believe that the state of emotional health cannot possibly have serious effects on your spine?

You might know that stress is not good for the heart and that the risk of heart disease increases with higher levels of stress hormones, but do you extend the thought beyond that?

You’ve learned from doctors and media that your digestive system can be affected by elevated stress levels, but do you connect the dots?

Stress affects everything in your body!

I will say this again: Stress affects everything!!

Your connective tissues become tighter and your posture changes dramatically when you suffer emotional distress.

I am sure you have felt yourself shrinking and falling inward when you are in distress or emotional pain; your posture changes: your chest caves, your shoulders lift and move forward and you look shorter.

Sustained stress affects your spine and its health.

Is there anything in your life that has been causing you a lot of stress for a long time? If there is, please stay open to the possibility that there is a solution. Nothing is carved in stone and you have the power to change a stress creating situation into a more aligned circumstance.

You want a healthy spine in a healthy body?

Start by acknowledging the things that create substantial stress in your life.

Love,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 206: Mindset And Your Spine

mindset

Your belief systems with respect to health and aging have the power to either sustain your physical health or impede it.

These deeply embedded belief systems will affect your general state of well-being, the way you feel day after day and the health of your body.

Do you believe that as you age your spine deterioration is imminent?

Even though it is true that the gravitational force starts to affect the spine from the moment you stopped crawling and commenced biped walking, it is not true that you must end up debilitated and in pain.

There are people who move with ease and age with grace and who live their lives fully an vibrantly, without experiencing the effects of an aging spine.

What makes that possible?

Is it merely a lifetime of good eating habits, exercise and good genes?

Or is it what their beliefs have been about their health and abilities throughout their entire lives?

Some food for thought, don’t you think?

What are your beliefs about your body, your health, your aging process?
