DAY 296: How Scared Are People?

fear

Fear and its effects on individuals and society became a subject of scientific.

Dr. Deepak Chopra and Jim Clifton in their article entitled “The Fear Factor: How Scared Are People?” say:

“Over the past decade the word “fear” has become all too familiar. After 9/11, critics of the war on terror called it fear-mongering. After the financial crash of 2008, living in a climate of fear became the lot of millions of people who lost their jobs, retirement accounts, and homes.

In the face of such violence, the prevalence of fear can have a profound effect on the health, well-being, and economic development: if a society is in a constant state of fear, it won’t produce anything good.”

Fear is everywhere. People take their first dose of daily fear with their morning coffee, while watching the news, reading the newspaper or listening to the car radio on their way to work. They start to feel the fists of fear in their guts right after brushing their teeth in the morning.

The truth is that fear sells.

It is also true that for every sad and disconcerting thing that we hear about in the news, there is a beautiful, uplifting and empowering thing that is happening somewhere in the world in the exact same time. Unfortunately, that would not sell, so the accent is put on what sells: tragedy, pain, and fear. A continuous stream of fear-creating news is bombarding us all day long.

Understanding all this gives us the option to make a choice whether to live in fear or not.

What do you choose?

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.

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 179: Reinventing Your Body

 

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

We have a completely new body every two years!

The physical body has an extraordinary capacity for healing and constant renewal, so why are some people in continuous pain?

Dr.  Andrew Weil, author of  SPONTANEOUS HEALING: How To Discover And Enhance Your Body’s Natural Ability To Maintain And Heal Itself says: ‘’People can get better. More than that, they can get better from all sorts of conditions of disease, even very severe ones of long duration.”

So why is it that some people do not heal, even though their bodies have the capacity for complete renewal?

The answer might surprise you. They reinvent their body the same way over and over again, so that:

  • It retains the same patterns
  • It has the same illnesses
  • It has the same problems

The same pain:

  • Is recreated over and over again
  • Remains the same month after month, year after year
  • Is now a powerful belief
  • Controls them

Do you see how this works?

The body CAN heal, but the thoughts, feelings and beliefs must work in the same direction with the healing process, not against it!

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 178: A New Body In Two Years!

 

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

The body you have right now is not the same body you had a few months ago or a year ago.

You create a new liver every six weeks; a new stomach lining every five weeks; a new skeleton every 3 months. Even the actual raw material of your DNA changes every 6 weeks: the DNA which stores memories of millions of years of evolutionary time.

In fact, if you consider every atom in the body, they are all replaced in less than two years.

That’s right: you have a completely new body every two years!

In his book “Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul: How to Create a New You”, Dr. Deepak Chopra explains the body’s infinite capacity for change and renewal. He offers five breakthroughs for the body and five for the soul to help build awareness and change the distorted energy patterns that create disease, infirmity, and aging.

Your body has an extraordinary capacity for healing.

So why are you or someone you know still in pain?

I’ll explain tomorrow what’s standing in the way.

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 26: The Inner Child – Part 2

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

I am thrilled that I get to share with you all this information about the Inner Child. When I understood this concept, I was able to start a powerful process of transformation in my own life. I am grateful that I did and I want the same for you!

As I sat down to write this post, I realized that there will be more than two parts to the Inner Child topic. So more will come tomorrow.

In yesterday’s post I asked you to create your Inner Child image and to allow it to sit with you in silence. According to the tradition of Ho’oponopono, about which I wrote on Day 5, the Inner Child is actually the subconscious mind and it must be approached really gently and patiently.

I’ll write about the conscious and subconscious minds tomorrow. Right now, I want to bring to your attention the fact that nowadays science is backing-up the connection between what we feel and what we create in our lives on all levels: physical, emotional, spiritual, mental and energetic. This is no mystery anymore; it is not considered make-belief anymore in the medical and scientific circles. It is REALITY. It is the reality of the intricate, powerful and self-healing mechanism that the human being is.

Reading books by Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Andrew Weil or Gregg Braden will offer you the scientific proof regarding the fact that we create our lives through how we feel and what we think. Our emotions are a sounding board, a barometer for how aligned we are with our inner essence. Our true Essence is fearless, powerful, expanded, generous and magnificent. When we feel small, afraid and powerless it is because part of our connection with the true essence of who we are has been turned off. More so today, as our world is led by fear and shaken by major events, we may be feeling afraid, confused or alone. And because of this very phenomenon, we create more of what we are afraid of.

Louise Hay started saying almost 40 years ago:

“Every thought we think, and every word we speak, is creating our future. Our thoughts go out into the universe.”

The book “All is Well: Heal Your Body with Medicine, Affirmations and Intuition” written by Louise Hay and Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz is based on Louise Hay’s decades of work. Dr. Schulz explains how science today is able to back-up what Louise Hay said all along. Here’s a quote from the book:

“Research has shown that fear, anger, sadness, love, and joy have specific effects on the body. We know that anger makes muscles clamp down and blood vessels constrict, leading to hypertension and resistance to blood flow. Cardiac medicine tells us that joy and love tend to have opposite effect.

……

Specific thought patterns affect our bodies in predictable ways, releasing certain chemicals in response to each emotion. When fear is your dominant mood over a long period of time, the constant release of stress hormones, specifically cortisol, triggers a domino effect of chemicals that lead to heart disease, weight gain, and depression.

As with fear, other emotions and thoughts follow a typical pattern as they are projected onto the body in the form of illness. In my work, I have also found that while emotions travel everywhere in the body, they affect organs differently depending on what is happening in your life. “

This is a lot of information and I will leave you with it until tomorrow.
