The mind directs body's energy flow

Where Our Mind Goes, So Goes Our Energy.

Relax – Feel Good. The communication between mind and body is a relationship worth cultivating.

Our mind can help calm and relax us, or it can encourage the flow of the body’s energy toward illness and death.

Relax – Feel good – Take the stress out and decrease illness and weight.

Stress taxes the nervous system and increases stress hormones: adrenaline, cortisol and other stress-related hormones. Long-held negative emotions: grief, anger, sense of neglect, abandonment and worry can make a person sick physically and emotionally.

Where Our Mind Goes, So Goes Our Energy.

Our mind can help our healing and relax us, or it can seed our path to illness and death.

Let us try this exercise to discover the power of the mind.

Step 1. Sit in a chair and let your hands drop to your sides. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and relax.

Step 2. Visualize a bucket of very warm water by your stronger hand.

Imagine you are putting your hand in this bucket of very warm water.

Let your stronger hand slip into the heated water.

Bring back a time when you had your hands in very warm water, water that is hot enough to turn your hand pink, but not so hot it burns you.

When you have made your hand as hot as you can without burning it.

Take it out and let it rest on your lap where it will stay hot until you have activated your other hand.

Step 3. Now feel your weaker hand and plunge your hand into very cold water, water that has ice floating in it.

Remember a time when you were using your hand to reach something in the back of a freezer. Let your hand get very, very cold without causing frostbite.

Feel the change in how your hand feels, like tingling or a sense of a glove over your hand.
Take your hand out of the icy water and allow your two hands to touch each other.

Do you feel a difference between the two?

now allow your hands to lightly touch each other. Feel the difference in the two hands.

Now take your hands and place then over an area of your body that is tight or in dis ease. Relax your breathing and allow the energy from your hands to flow through the area of your body that was not feeling comfortable.

When you practice this exercise daily you can use it to help yourself feel more in harmony and can relieve the stress in that part of your body.

With dedicated practice this exercise can be used to decrease stress and pain. It can help, along with diet, exercise and sleep, to help you to help yourself to better health feel better and better.

Great listeners are in demand

The art of listening

Listening to another is an acquired art.
Great listeners are in demand in our under sensitive over stimulated, pressured world. Simply hearing another person’s words is never enough. The other person who is talking to you leaves frustrated and feeling like this person does not care enough about me to hear me out and pay attention to me.

Developing calmness by practicing deep breathing exercises, martial arts, meditation is part of the process one may use to be anchored in that quiet space within your heart before the crisis with another happens. This skill should be cultivated in our children from conception.

Listening from your heart.
When someone is speaking to us, First Calm and Relax yourself before they begin to talk. The feeling I get when I’m in that calm some is one of complete focus on the other person. I listen from a caring space deep inside.

Observe
I can observe how the other person has reacted to the experiences being shared. I never assume I know what they are feeling or thinking. Asking open-ended questions about what they are discussing let’s me get their words and as I look into their eyes I begin to sense the pain, anger, frustration..

History
Being a good listener is like being a good detective sometimes. One must ferret out of what you are observing some of what they cannot tell you with their words. Remember even if a person believes they are telling you the absolute truth, Truth is colored by the person’s past experiences and influenced by their emotional state and overall physical, mental and social well-being.

Your skills as a listener can be influenced by:

Personnal background,
Practicing communication techniques
Practice. Listen, Practice, Listen
