Harsh Winter Environment

 

Healing Tip

 

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…

 

 

Pathway to Inner Peace and Happiness

Pathway to Inner Peace and Happiness

 

Meditation Tip

What does meditation do for us?

 

pathway to inner peace and happiness

 

Above the temple to Apollo, in ancient Greece was the saying “Know Thyself”

Meditation takes us on an inward journey. The pathway leads to inner peace and happiness because it helps us to know ourselves. Along the way it helps us to release mental and emotional baggage, as well as belief systems and mindsets that no longer serve us. It clears past trauma, as well, from the body-mind.

A regular mindfulness meditation practice purifies the mind. A pure mind is more joyful, less reactive and has access to the inner well of peace that we all have.

Can you make the time to practice today?

Nurture the seedling

Meditation Tip

Nurture the seedling

 

Our son gave us this avocado tree last Christmas that he had grown from a seed.

Our summers can be very hot. Our soil is mainly clay and the seedling did not survive.

Small plants need constant vigilance to survive in summer. They need daily water and even shade in extreme heat.

When we are new to meditation, our practice is like a very small seedling. It too needs constant vigilance and support.

Just as we protect a new seedling so to do we need to ‘protect’ and support our meditation practise.

One way we can do this is to have a regular time and place for our daily ‘sitting’. When we do this we are helping to retrain our minds by developing a new habit. A habit that is positive and will lead to a happier, more peaceful life.

We need to make a commitment to practice regularly and then stick to that. This is especially true even when we don’t “feel” like it.

Good habits take time to develop. Just as bad habits take time and diligence to change.

Meditation Tip

Incense sticks

 

Can you see that these are incense sticks all drying in the outside air?

Incense has been used for centuries to clear negative energy and instil a contemplative atmosphere into temples.

We are affected by negative energy. It can trigger our own stock of buried negative reactions from the past.

Meditation helps to clean up this stock of old reactions that lie unseen in our subconscious minds. These will all bring unhappiness and misery, in time.
