feeling the pressure

 

Lately I’ve been feeling the pressure. Running a business involves an endless list of things to do. Is there ever really enough time in the day?

“But who writes your To-Do list?”, I hear you say. “Surely you can leave a few things off. It can’t be that hard.”

We all have sub-conscious programs that urge us to act a particular way. I believe that we all have approximately 60,000 programs that “run” us. The startling idea for me was that 45,000 of them were in place by age 7!!

Meditation and reflecting on life’s challenges can help us to understand and clear the programs that “control” us. Journaling and talking to other like-minded people can also help.

In terms of being an entrepreneur, I’m learning to be very practical and a bit more realistic, and doing my best to live in joy.

 

 

The Four Agreements

The Four Agreements

 

Some families always get along well, and others provide us with opportunities for personal growth. This has certainly been the case for me this year. As I observe each of the generations in my family I can see just how differently we each see the world.

As I ask the question:

“How can I more fully accept these differences?” I am reminded of ‘The Four Agreements’ by Don Miguel Ruiz, a practical guide to personal freedom.

  1. Be impeccable with your word
  2. Don’t take anything personally
  3. Don’t make assumptions
  4. Always do your best

If we can follow these agreements then we can start to heal our relationships and families.

harsh winter environment

We were visiting China a few years ago. Ian took this photo at the top of Mount Taishan. I remember walking along one of the paths when suddenly my feet slipped out from under me. There was some black ice that I didn’t see.

What would it be like to live all year around in a snow-bound location? You would have to consider warmth and protection whenever you leave the house. I think you would also be very tuned in to safety.

We can’t always control where we live. Some people live in harsh environments.

At times we can all have, what I would call, a harsh internal environment. We can be critical of ourselves and of others. It’s easy to believe that whatever has happened is someone else’s fault.

But we can control, over time, our internal environment. We can listen to our self-talk and question its validity. Does it represent the truth? Or am I being influenced by belief systems and mindsets that no longer serve me?

No-one lives in our mind except us! So it is up to us to train our minds if we wish to experience more peace and harmony. This is where a regular meditation practice can really help. Meditation brings calm to the troubled waters of your mind.

It is also good to challenge our beliefs as they can frequently be incorrect. Writing in a journal can be an excellent tool to bring us greater self-awareness and inner peace.

Energy healing techniques like The BodyTalkTM System can also help. Read more…

Still Water

 

Healing Tip

still water

 

I have a friend moving into a house with a well. It is covered over and she’s not sure if there is still water in it. For her sake I hope the well is empty.

Moving water is healthy for us to be around. Still water can be less healthy.

I was listening to a webinar on Feng Shui recently. The presenter told a story of a couple who had a cluttered house and part of the clutter was an old washing machine still full of water.

In Feng Shui still water like that is understood to be a storage of any old emotion that has not been processed and released.

I was a bit shocked! But my understanding of emotional blockages in our bodies is very much connected to water. We can store emotion where there is inflammation. Once the physical reason for the inflammation has cleared, if we have not processed whatever emotion is present, the water (inflammation) stays in the body holding this emotion.

This blocked emotion prevents good communication within the body-mind system. Commonly held emotions include grief, anger, fears, worry and sadness. These emotions require processing. Time is needed to acknowledge and understand the situation and then release the emotions.

Do you have emotional baggage?

Have you heard of The BodyTalkTM System of Healthcare?
It uses the latest in scientific knowledge to clear old emotion and to improve communication within the body-mind complex. This then enables the systems of the body to be re-synchronised and re-balanced for optimum function.

Healing Tip - Forgiveness Practice

 

Last week I was watching Australian Story on the ABC. This is our national broadcaster, here in Australia.

The woman featured was just 15 years old when her parents died within 6 weeks of each other.

Approximately 10 years later her younger sister was killed in a road accident caused by a drunken driver. Her aunt, who she was living with at the time, insisted she take a letter of forgiveness, written by the aunt, to this man in hospital.

It was the hardest thing she had ever been asked to do. She willed herself to do it. Upon reading the letter the man burst into tears. And this young woman experienced, first hand, the power of forgiveness. It released her from possibly years of bitterness.

Have you heard of the Ho’oponopono prayer?

According to Wikipedia it is “an ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness.” It was researched in the 1980s and the results were astounding! Dr. Hew Len, a clinical psychologist, was the first person to document and confirm proof of the healing miracles initiated by the Ho’oponopono prayer.

I Love You
Please forgive me or I forgive you
I am sorry
Thank you

It has the power to clear stress and unhappiness within families and communities. Can you try it today?
