The Connection Between Your thoughts, Your Mood And Your Immune System

Sunday evening I was sitting on the sofa thinking about the week ahead, is it going to be better this week?  Is it going to worsen?  What is this world coming to?  

This virus is causing trauma as days go by.  Our children haven't experienced uncertainty and insecurity globally as they are today.  They're experiencing extreme fear.

I found myself wondering how can I be of service during this time?  One thing I know how to do is pray and meditate.  

And so the next thought came... I can help others either learn how to meditate, teach them a technique here and there or I can at least hold space for someone.

This week I'm holding live streams on my FB Page (you'll find the link down in the footer) every day at 12 pm EST M - F.

 

In this video you will learn:

2 Effectice Breathing Exercises to Decrease Your Anxiety

anxiety breathwork sleep Feb 24, 2020

Weather you go to a yoga class or a meditation center, the instructor is going to ask you to take a deep breath, bring your focus back to your breath or simply ask you to continue breathing.

 Why?

 Because humans, when stressed tend to hold your breath, shrug your shoulders and keep’em up there for long periods of time, inhale to the top portions of your lungs and call it a day.

 This kind of shallow breathing causes you anxiety, your mind and body stress.  Without you even knowing it, you’re forgetting to relax your shoulders and inhale deeply.  Never mind inhale deeply, you’re forgetting to breathe normally!

Therefore, I’m taking time to remind you how to breathe correctly in times of relaxation so when you’re faced with stressful life moments, you already have the body memory and it’ll be easier for you to have a positive default than an anxious one.  Take it from me, someone that worked as a respiratory...

Talking About Your Goals Helps Manifest Them

You may want to get in the habit of counting your wins.  I know that as kids we learned not to brag.  Especially us women.  “It’s not nice, not lady like.”  Well, I’m here to tell you it’s time to unlearn that.  It’s time to share your wins and scream “Hell yeah!”

This exact thing is what we’re doing in our meditation group every month, we count our wins and share them with pride.  We encourage and support each other to take the next step!  Oh, and we clap for each other too

Why count your wins?  First, because you can.  Second, it creates momentum in your life.  The more you talk about your wins the smaller the other stuff becomes.   The more you talk about your wins, they become real, and the energy multiplies.  It feels good.  You inspire the people that are watching you, your kids.  Some may talk snot about you behind your back, but that’s...

10 Teas to Alleviate Your Anxiety and Tips

I was having a conversation with one of my clients last week about teas.  Specifically, teas that relief anxiety symptoms. 

But before I start talking, remember to consult your doctor before ingesting anything that may help you. 

Also, remember that I’m not a doctor and I’m not suggesting nor recommending anything.  I’m just sharing information that may help.

As you may be aware, anxiety can prevent you from having a restful night's sleep. Some people ingest Benadryl to help them sleep but they wake up tired and sluggish. 

Tea works to help you relax and sleep well without the sluggish side effects.  And it’s food!

Tea is truly calming and relaxing.

Tea can help you, your mind and muscles relax along with a short five-minute meditation.  You can also grab a cup of your tea, read a bit of your book and let your mattress support you. Ahhhh...

You can also dip your finger in your favorite essential oil blend...

Your Soul's Psychology, You And Trauma

Have you thought of your soul’s psychology before? 

Me neither!  This chapter of The Seat of the Soul has got me thinking, like all other chapters. 

This is what google says about the word psychology…

·       the scientific study of the human mind and its functions, especially those affecting behavior in a given context

·       the mental characteristics or attitude of a person or group

·       the mental and emotional factors governing a situation or activity

All definitions are regarding the mind and body (behavior), none are regarding the soul.  Psychology is based on the perception of your personality not the soul. 

How can you heal yourself without regarding your soul?

You can’t.

Let’s go back to Carl Jung.  He talked about symbolism and the shadows.  When he talked about the shadows, he was talking about the...

Why We Need to Find Our Power Within Our 'Parts Unknown'

Anthony Bourdain, wow! 

His suicide hit me hard.  I knew he battled with depression, drugs you know, dark shadowy parts of the self.  You have them, I have them.  Am I surprised that he completed his suicide, no.  Do I wish his most powerful self-had won the internal battle? Yes! 

It’s hard at times when you have those negative thoughts, I get it.

One negative thought follows another and another, meanwhile you’re losing your power to a much lesser energy.

There are times when clients come to me torn between making two decisions.  They then realize that there’s always more to choose from.  Let me explain.

Teresa (not real name) came to me recently torn between choosing her future self and the self that she’s currently living.  Teresa saw her future self as a confident, secure, married to an honorable husband, children, connected to herself spiritually and in life.  She sees her current self as shameful for...

You, Your Mood and The Law of Vibration

Have you been in one of those moods that no matter how much you try to shake it off and kick it away you just can’t?  The more you try to get rid of it, the stickier it gets!! Isn’t it terrible?!

As you may know, I’ve been holding meditation groups monthly and during these meditation groups I’ve been focusing on the universal laws, especially the law of attraction.  The universal laws apply to all at any given time.

One of the universal laws is the law of oneness.  This law states that everything is connected to a great whole we sometimes call God, Source, Spirit, or Universe.  I’ve also heard this oneness be referred to by many as ‘Something out there that’s bigger than me.’

Here’s the thing, it’s not out there.  It’s in here, inside you and inside me.  You are part of the greater whole, part of God, Source, Spirit and the Universe.  You are not separate from anything.  You are...
