Welcome to our new web log Transformations. The blog dedicated to the transformation of Body, Mind & Spirit. We are very excited to be able to establish a connection with you all in this way and look forward to our mutual learning!
It seems that as Spring approaches, the theme that always comes to mind is renewal. Rebirth. As we shed our Winter skin and behaviours, what exactly do we want to take with us into this new season? Perhaps more importantly, how do we execute these new strategies in an effective, yet gentle way, so that we maintain our balance through the transition?
For myself I've found that changes are much more likely to stick when I remember that I am conscious on many levels and need to have a practical strategy for each of those levels. I also know that simple is better, and more effective. So with this in mind let's look at some of the strategies for each level.
During both the fall and spring equinoxes the liver goes through a natural detoxification process. The body needs to release the stored toxins from the previous six months. When these toxins are released it is common to experience headaches, nausea, aches and pains and food cravings. Working with a good naturapath/ homeopath/ chiropractor can be invaluable at this time. They can speed the process along with gentle suggestions.
Generally speaking: Drink lots of water. (2-3 liters a day. And no, juice doesn't count.) Move the body - walking, exercise, deep breathing are all good. Get plenty of rest. The body rejuvenates and rebuilds when you are sleeping.
Clear the clutter!!! Give each room a systematic scrubbing. Physical debris = mental & emotional debris. Cleaning your closets gives the Universe an opportunity to fill them with something new.
Pay attention to the people and situations that are triggering you. Pay special attention to anger. It is one of the emotions often associated with the liver detoxing. If you are angry - get moving. Walk briskly, breathe deeply and let it out (while you are alone of course.)
Goals. Do you have them? Are they specific, positively stated, with a date, and phrased as if they are already happening? e.g. I enjoy a monthly income of 10,000 or more. I am a size 10 and healthy by June 1, 2006. Goals. You need to have them. You can't receive what you don't ask for. So get going and have fun with this!
Gratitude. The stuff that miracles are made of. Feeling the feeling of being grateful for your life opens your heart chakra, and bio-chemically releases neurotransmitters that are responsible for the feelings of well being and euphoria. A simple exercise: Write down 5 things every day that happened to you that you were glad for. Phrases are OK. "The lights stayed green when i was late". "The sunset". "Breathing instead of screaming." Truly it is life changing and joy producing.
Find someone who is already an expert at the skill set you desire. Study them. Specifically how do they hold their body? What are they feeling? What are they thinking? When you are at a crossroads ask yourself 'What would they do?". It doesn't really matter whether the answer is *real* or not. Merely thinking this way will cause an inductive logic pattern and get you 'out of your box' and into new opportuities. Play with it. Enjoy. It's your life. Live it to the fullest.
Believe It. See It. Live It...NOW!!!
In Love & Light-
