Who is not stressed-out in today’s world?
People who are practicing a relaxation technique, that’s who.
There are many choices, but my personal favorite is Meditation.
I hope you are still with me, since so many just have to hear the word Meditation, and they run for the hills.
They run because sometimes … the thing we need the most is the very thing that we resist.
Can you learn to Meditate right here and now? Well, of course you can.
When the mind begins to wander, a person can become very distracted. This not only makes it more difficult for them to deal with their everyday responsibilities, it can also lead to profound unhappiness.
A distracted mind is unable to focus on the present moment, making it difficult to enjoy anything fully.
Two of the most common mental disorders, anxiety and depression, are characterized by an inability to keep one’s focus on the present.
Excessive ruminating on the past is a common symptom of depression, while looking to the future with dread is the basis of anxiety.
Fortunately, basic meditation techniques can help individuals overcome these types of mental problems.
Living your life is a very easy thing – but the challenge … is to live a balanced life.
A balanced life is living with peace in each element of your existance; Career, family, social, etc. – with each element of your being; mental, physical and spiritual.
A balanced life is a peaceful life in every aspect.
A balanced life is necessary for personal effectiveness, mental peace and living well. We all have responsibilities; whether we are working, going to school, or retired. And while dealing with those responsibilities, we will face many troubles and possibly get frustrated. So to get rid of that frustration and stressful energy we must do proactive things to keep us in balance.
The fast pace of life has made people increasingly susceptible to stress, as a result of the continuous pulls and pressures of a hectic lifestyle.
Chasing money and materialistic possessions has an adverse impact on the mental well-being of a person. To add to the existing stress, technology and gadgets have made information available at all times at all places thus adding to stress instead of being a facilitator.
To reduce this stress and tensions, one should start doing meditation. It relaxes the body, mind and spirit.
So, let’s start from the basics.
These guided meditation downloads are designed to assist you to relax, unwind and de-stress.
They are great for beginners to meditation, or anyone simply needing to take some time out from their busy schedule.
One of the meditations focuses on teaching you to slow your thoughts and control your mind, while the others assist you with working with the breath to consciously relax your muscles and body.
It is easy to get caught up in the negative side of life with the rising cost of living, bad weather, struggling economies – not to mention the negative side of what we see on television.
It is important to remember that what we focus our attention on we become.
There are many blessings in life every day, but where is your attention; on hardships, stress and unhappiness (which are created by us) or the blessings and joy in our life?
As a human on this planet we can experience a range of emotion from love to fear and everything in between.
Fear can prevent us from taking risks in life and also slow our spiritual growth. It can also be a precursor to spiritual growth by motivating us to face our fears and take action.
Often we have pain and trauma in our heart that needs to be released and healed.
The guided meditations in this package are designed to support and assist you to release your fears and heal your heart in a safe space. The last track takes you on a special journey to heaven to review your life and meet and connect with your departed loved ones.
Just the other day I got in a Fight!
I was out near my Worm Farm, transplanting a few cherry tomato seedlings when it all began.
I had a bag of potting mix between my knees, both hands full of dirt and BAMMO!
One of the neighbor’s bees lined me up and took me down with one hit (but not before I squealed hysterically, ran in circles and threw dirt everywhere).
I was stung on the top of my cheek, just below my right eye. I was home alone and a little worried about the effects, as I had been stung on my foot a few years previous and my whole leg swelled. Luckily, this time, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation saved a disaster. My face did swell a little – but only enough to cut some vision and make me look a little chubby. But the worst thing of all – It hurt when I smiled.
Treating clients with massage therapy is my day job. To keep it interesting, I include energy work, intuition, and where suitable… guidance.
I am not a trained counselor, so I must keep in check what I suggest, but it was only the other day I realized I do give out quite a bit of advice that falls into the category of commonsense.
I guess it was a natural progression as I always give my injured clients ‘homework’. I suggest specific stretches for those with localized dysfunction. There are good stretches that can be done safely to help, or other things that can trigger spasm or pain. I know the difference and people take my advice on board.
I also use other keys to better health, such as for my salesman with bad posture. Every time he hears his cell phone ring (which is very often) he tightens his abs, rolls back his pelvis and pulls in his chin. For a week he had to ‘try’, but now it is now an automated trigger that is making him a better person.
But a lot of the clients I see carry stress and burden with them continuously.
We live in a busy world. There is never enough time!
Our priority lists start with the necessities such as family, work, cleaning and eating, and only when we juggle or sacrifice do we find the time for hobbies, personal development and dare I say it, Relaxation.
And by relaxation I don’t mean sitting on the couch mindlessly flicking the remote!
Physical and Mental relaxation is vital to a balanced and healthy life. Effective relaxation must be one of your priorities!
But you are busy, I know, I know … So let’s focus on a solution – ‘How to relax, in a busy world‘.
Let me introduce you to Guided Meditation. And don’t shy away on reading the word ‘meditation‘ drawing from your pre-conceived ideas. You don’t need to sit still for hours, and you don’t need to completely silence your mind.
Guided meditation is easy, and the benefits are instant!
The secret benefits of Meditation are the subtle effects that happen quietly in the background without your conscious awareness.
The first term I will introduce is Homeostasis. (Just read it slowly and that is how it is meant to sound)
Homeostasis is when the different systems of the body work together to regulate the optimal conditions for you internal function. And to put that more simply… it’s the body striving for ‘balance’.
Now, the body is made up of 11 major organ systems. I will run through them here to give you a better idea of the complexities involved in this process. (1) Integumentary (skin), (2) skeletal, (3) muscular, (4) nervous, (5) endocrine (hormones), (6) circulatory, (7) lymphatic (disease defence), (8) respiratory, (9) digestive, (10) urinary, and (11) reproductive.
Every second of your existence is monitored and continual adjustments are made to each and every system.
Yes, the Human body is Amazing!
