How Morning Meditation Makes You More Melodious & How to Do It Daily

How Morning Meditation Makes You More Melodious & How to Do It Daily | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Morning meditation can, in fact, be a rather blasé part of our routine, like a shower or breakfast or brushing our teeth. There is nothing to lose and a lot to gain from giving morning meditation a go.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that morning as well as evening meditation can help you to focus better and have more energy, can help you to release old stories your chatterbox mind repeats, can help you to relax as you follow your breath, can help you to be more aware of who you truly are, and can help you to be grounded in the present moment? You don’t need to attend a class unless you want to be with other people and an instructor. This is optional. You don’t need to sit for hours in an uncomfortable position. 

 

Morning or evening meditation can be experienced in the comfort of your home. You can sit on the floor on mats or cushions or you can sit in a chair. You can also do legs up the wall (a yoga position that helps your circulation) and meditate. You can sit outside in a natural setting as well.

You choose what works best for you.

 

You can start by following your breath for about 15 or 20 minutes. Gradually as you do this everyday you and your body working together in harmony will create a new habit. The monkey mind chatter will eventually be displaced ( it varies for each person) and replaced with intentional thoughts to help you with your day, your work, and your life.

 

Health Tips:

 

When you are relaxed, calm, and centered this helps you in multiple ways throughout your day and also can help to relax you when you go to sleep at night. When you are centered or grounded you don’t react to words that are spoken oftentimes in a negative hurtful manner. You surrender to action and infuse your words in positive ways.

 

 Another way grounding/relaxation helps you is to be able to think better and realize that when another person becomes aggressive toward you it is time to leave the person/situation and just walk away and not to engage. So many fruitless arguments can be ended before they get out of hand.

 

 Many times during a day many people react without thinking, old repetitive stories surface which can cause one to react in an unsettling manner or behavior that can hurt others. Being in the present moment, being grounded and breathing deeply helps to diffuse these unsettling behaviors. Breathe deeply from your diaphragm and let out a pleasurable sound as in Haaaaaaaaaaa. This actually works biochemically in your body by releasing oxytocin, the bonding hormone.

Live Long and Prosper

Live Long and Prosper | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that belonging to a community of like minded people with similar lifestyle behaviors is directly linked to longevity? There are seven community based well-known cultures in our world where longevity is at the top of the list of factors.

 

People in these communities all share a zest for life and the natural world through activities like gardening, being out in sunshine, getting lots of exercise, consuming plant based real whole food, drinking pure energy-giving water, sleeping 7-9 hours a night, having a sense of purpose, nurturing emotional and spiritual health, having a positive outlook on life, living a low stress filled  life, and having close connections with like minded folks.

 

Read this very interesting post about The Longevity Project: Surprising Discoveries for Health and Long Life from the Landmark Eight-Decade Study, by Friedman and Martin, (Hudson Street Press, March 2011)  which provides some surprising findings.

 

Health Tips:

 

Can you guess what is the strongest predictor of long life? Consciousness, self awareness, the knowing that one must follow the dictates of one’s heart and soul to do good, to respect and honor others and themselves in any endeavor, to be kind and compassionate to all of life. 

 

When one is listening within to one’s heart and soul, that person begins to understand through reflection that being part of something bigger than yourself is a worthy endeavor. Being mindful of others, of their experiences, of their suffering and injustices is just as important as your own.

Being in the present moment, being as stress-free as is possible can make a difference when one chooses to live a meaningful life.

 

Always come from a space of gratitude for your life and all its blessings. And yes challenges and obstacles are blessings in disguise. Learn from them and then move to the next level where there will be different challenges and obstacles. Life s a continual lesson. Learn to laugh at yourself, go on try it, it’s addicting and a much better way to be addicted to something. Have a laugh party with your friends.

5 Practical Tips for Anger Management

5 Practical Tips for Anger Management | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Anger is a terrible feeling. While it's easy to fly off the handle there are some practical habits we could adopt for anger management.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know there are safe and healthy practices for people who may be experiencing more anger than usual due to being in quarantine?  Anger is fine in the moment as it’s an emotional response. When it becomes a daily ritual anger can impact our health and well-being to the point that it can disrupt lives. Anger or any other emotional response has nothing to do with how others make you feel.

 

Anger, rage, jealousy, and other tension filled emotional responses, including shame affect your blood pressure, your breathing, your heart rate, your muscles, and your immune system, the seat of your health. Learning how to defuse tension and stress is one of the best practices you can learn to help the body be healthy so you can handle life’s emergencies in a better stress free way.

 

Health Tips:

 

Practicing mindfulness using short meditations in the morning when one wakes, and meditating for 3-5 minutes during the day at times when tensions get out of hand as well as in the evening hours as well as prior to going to bed. These precious tension-free times add up to help the body to relax and just be.

 

Being mindful also encompasses taking short helpful pauses during the day. Before responding to someone who perhaps said something that maybe you didn’t agree with or that really upset you, STOP, relax your shoulders, breathe deeply, and just Pause for a moment before you speak. Try it. This action affects your brain chemistry. 

 

Sometimes its best to just walk away from the other person or situation you find yourself in. Walk away and then relax shoulders and other body parts, breathe deeply letting out a pleasurable sound as in “Haaaaaaaaaaa” Just breathing this way lets your body know you are in relaxation mode, the adrenaline rush is over. Oxytocin breathing works on the Vagus nerve in the body.

 

Sometimes depending on the person, on the situation you might need to call for Professional help. This is perfectly okay.

Why Mental Detachment Is Crucial for Working From Home

Why Mental Detachment Is Crucial for Working From Home | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Working from home can require considerable self-control. Whereas our “normal” work environments – offices, factories, shops – are set up to effectively engage in work, for many employees, home environments are not.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that working from home can be a challenge for many people who have never worked from home before? Today  in our present climate working from home is a reality and will continue to be so for many people for quite awhile.

 

Working from home is vastly different from working in an office or any other working environment. Working from home requires Self-Care Routines to be in place before you begin the work day.

 

Home environments are vastly different from work environments. How one thinks, acts, and feels becomes paramount.

 

Health Tips:

 

Setting up Boundaries is key as well as being in a state of Detachment. Detachment is not passivity, it is rather accepting what is and appreciating what can be done and must be done each day to do the work.

 

In setting up boundaries, remember you are at work, you are not at home. Let the family know you are not to be disturbed during work time, unless there is an emergency. After you rise in the morning from sleep, follow your routine as you’ve done in the past.

  1. Dress the way you would if you were at the office, at the retail store, or the factory. 
  2. Set up a dedicated work space, free from distractions.
  3. Set up ahead of time with your spouse/partner time periods where you can spend a certain amount of time with your children to give your spouse/partner time off. 
  4. Learn how to use modern technology such as Zoom videos and emails to communicate with groups of people in your work environment.
  5. Take mid morning breaks, drink lots of filtered water, go outside to get some fresh air, and walk even if it’s just around the block.  Practice deep breathing which relaxes the body/brain so you can focus clearly on the work you need to do.
  6. At lunch time, eat nutritious food, which supports the body so you are not likely to decide to eat junk food. Take another walk outside, yes even if it’s raining. The body requires fresh air and pure filtered water to revitalize it. Drink coffee if you usually do, but drink the water first.
  7. Return to work and finish your work day. Use deep breathing techniques to relax and de-stress body and brain.
  8. Refrain from doing any work during your non-work time periods. This is dedicated time off from work for you to enjoy. Do activities that help you to laugh more, relax more deeply, engage other parts of your brain as in doing different kinds of puzzles, writing stories, doing some form of art, singing, playing with children and or pets, or just reading a real book, working in the garden, prepping food you like, listening to music, watching a movie you like, spending quality time with your spouse, partner, housemates, or yourself.

Enneagram Quiz: How Would You Cross the River?

Enneagram Quiz: How Would You Cross the River? | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Enneagram quiz: How would you cross the river
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know or did you ever consider that there are innumerable ways, solutions to help oneself to grow spiritually, mindfully, and physically while being grounded and balanced? At this uncertain time in our lives right now, a tool like this can help those of you who may be struggling with anxiety. or challenges to have a helpful technique/tool working for you. Depending on how one perceives life; i.e. how what’s occurring in the outer external world can affect the actions and thoughts of an individual.

 

When whatever is troubling or upsetting to oneself, it helps to go within to find the answers. Many people have no concept of “going within” for whatever reasons. We all grow at different stages in our lives. This is natural.as it’s the way it’s meant to be. The expression, “it is what it s” can be upsetting to some people and helpful to others.

 

Using this tool (and there are many such tools available) can help oneself to understand better why you act the way you do, why yo think the way you do, and why you feel the way you do.

 

Health Tips:

 

Self Navigation is one such tool that requires mindfulness. Here’s two key tips for you to know when practicing this technique:

  1. No one can think long on any subject, circumstance, reality, or perception without falling under its influence.
  2. Unless you self-navigate toward a better view, our own mind will take negative steps and you will drift along the current of frustration and disappointment.

 

Our internal navigation systems can be thought of as having a meter, indicating a set point. Imagine that the meter lands on whatever emotion you have chosen consciously or that your circumstances have chosen for you consciously.

 

Before you go to sleep at night, use awareness to be sure that the meter is always pointed  toward Gratitude and Trust. Don’t allow it to fall backward on regret, or forward on worry. Focus your thinking on gladness, on goodness for all that is good in your life believing that you deserve such positives, and that they will continue to flow toward you.

 

This type of awareness unleashes the subconscious mental power in the right direction. It plants a seed. Even when asleep your mind still goes forward with its functions in a positive manner. You have set your mind on auto-pilot, so to speak and it will go in the direction you pre-set.

Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know you can live a beautiful fulfilled life when you rise above the density of outer life (your current reality) to make a decision which supports Being You, Being whole, and having self-respect?

It became such a runaway bestseller that its title became a catchphrase of the ’70s. What a nice attitude. It says, “I accept myself as OK, and I accept you as OK.” Sounds …

All too often we think about developing knowledge and increasing our capacity to use our brain in a linear way.” Unfortunately, the mind has very little to do …
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know there’s much more to you as a human being than you realize? Many people  revert to habitual thought patterns which are on auto-pilot. Your mind becomes like a storage unit for all the knowledge and information that enters it. 

 

Yet when you allow your mind to fully open and bring it into your heart space relying on your instinct you then liberate your mind to a new way of being. You are in the flow. You are and have always been unstoppable and unlimited. Your thoughts now come from your inner wisdom, your truth, and your soul.

 

Health Tips:

 

You can use what’s known as pattern interruptors to change your thoughts and to reawaken your true self. Music, art, prayer, meditation, walking in nature, journeying, yoga, and tai chi can all help to calm your mind and reawaken you to a different way of living, of being.

Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know there are numerous health benefits for your body when you allow yourself to spend time in a forest, in an outdoor activity, swimming, camping, or team sports. Let nature wake you up to all its glorious beauty and its serenity.

 

Health Tips:

 

This is a perfect time of the year to spend most of your waking hours in the great outdoors. If not during the week, then certainly on the weekends. Connecting with nature brings joy and balance into your life.

 

When you cultivate a sacred relationship with nature it helps to bring you closer to the true essence of who are: recognizing the truth of who you are.  By connecting with nature in a sacred relationship you are connecting with your inner wisdom.

 

You can go into nature to feed your ego because you climbed a mountain or swam the fastest. Or you can experience nature as a teacher who shows you how to live in harmony with others, who shows you how to work the land in a kinder way, how to be respectful to all who inhabit it, and who shows you how to be flexible and bend with the wind.

 

You are one with nature and everything on this beautiful blue planet humans call Earth. Spending more time in nature helps your body and your mind to value what’s really important and be open to make changes that help everyone and everything in this world.

Vitality and Long Living

Vitality and Long Living | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know you can change and expand your beliefs, your thoughts and your perceptions to envision what you truly desire in this world? Poppycock? No, this way of being happens all the time when one acknowledges and allows it to grow in depth. It doesn’t happen overnight and yet sometimes it might seem that way.

Even with all the crazy stuff and suffering that’s happening now in our world today, it’s still our job to stay uplifted. No it’s not easy to do right now and yet this is the perfect time to begin if one isn’t already on this path. 

 

Humanity grows through the challenges that occur in each lifetime. Without the darkness, there is no light. We need to keep moving forward and we need to trust. You can trust in your own intuition to guide you. Change has always made a difference. And yes some of you resist change. Sit with it and see what comes up for you. Reflect on what comes up. Begin the inner work.

 

Health Tips:

 

Read this article written by Brian Clement, LN, PhD. See what comes bubbling up to the surface for you. Are there limiting beliefs in your life? What could you change to make things better? Are you practicing some form of being in gratitude? This inner work is individually based. This is about you. There is no time limit here, there are no limits at all.

 

When you are open to change, open to accept and embrace others as human beings like you, you set in motion a new paradigm, a new way of thinking and being.. Caring for one another, having empathy for others, sharing with others, loving others as you love yourself. are all givens that occur naturally.

 

Fly like an eagle, you can if you truly believe. Open your heart and follow it by practicing heart based living. Let the mind take a much needed vacation as it is mostly based on old learned response patterns that are no longer serving you.

 

This site recommends www.heartmathinstitute.org  HeartMath helps people to become more heart coherent. They offer a new Free global coherence app so you can connect with others around the globe.

Did you know that being in a space of mindfulness, which encompasses many modalities can and does have a beneficial effect during any emotional period in one’s life? Today because of the Coronavirus and everything associated with it more people are experiencing periods of trauma, helplessness, anxiety, depression, worry, fear, and a host of other mental health issues.

 

Being Mindful is really just being aware of what’s happening in the Moment, in the NOW and sensing what’s happening in each moment within us and around us. Being mindful helps quiet the mind chatter and helps you to ground or center or balance yourself. 

 

Health Tips:

 

Stop watching and listening to the news everyday whether constantly or once during the day. The mind has difficulty distinguishing between what’s happening in real time from what has already occurred or might occur. Our body is the same body as the earliest human ancestors who faced saber tooth tigers. The body’s inherent mechanism goes into what’s known as “Fight or Flight” syndrome. Adrenaline pumps into the system so one can focus and take action immediately and then the episode is over.

 

However in the modern world today there are constant “saber tooth tigers” appearing all the time, constant episodes.The body cannot process all this frightening negativity 24/7 day in and day out. Turn off the news, breathe deeply, laugh more, play with your kids, pets, read books, sing songs, journal, prep delicious plant based real whole food, draw, paint, write stories,,work on your biz if you have one, connect with your community on NextDoor, take online classes to learn something new, and go take a walk in Nature. In other words do what you would do if there were no Saber Tooth Tiger in your life.

 

Going into Nature has immense benefits for the body, mind, and spirit. Nature can be your backyard, your garden even in pots on your balcony, and even a strip of green on a sidewalk. Nature can also be watching nature videos. You can stop the video on a scene you like or one you resonate with. Focus on it totally, sit comfortably, relax the shoulders, the legs, take a deep breath, 

 

Breathe in deeply from the diaphragm and hold it for a moment or a but more. You can feel in your chest when you breathe deeply. When you’re ready exhale the breathe letting out a pleasurable sound as in “Haaaaaaaaaa”with a smile on your face. Oxytocin breathing works on your Vagus nerve in the body which is related to the parasympathetic nerve in the body. No adrenaline needed here.

 

Going into Nature you can also Meditate. In the brain our neural circuitry gets engaged when we connect with nature. There are

 many benefits of Meditating in Nature that support well-being. There are 5 key brain states you can harness to optimize your mindset. Learn to tune the Mind into Nature’s Channel, even if it is just by watching Nature videos online. Public Broadcasting has a wealth of Nature videos as does Smithsonian and National Geographic.

5 Ways COVID-19 May Be Shifting Your Spending Habits + Tips

5 Ways COVID-19 May Be Shifting Your Spending Habits + Tips | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Your environment and what is happening in your life are the biggest influences on how you spend your money. That has never been more true than now.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that the principle of chaos can be defined in two different ways and the second way in this context in the article means something completely different from complete confusion and disorder? Chaos can be a wave that you can ride. It’s a revolution of energy.

 

The wave is created for the purpose of carrying an intention.. The Power Source of chaos in this  context is that if you are able to change what you believe to be possible, you’re going to open yourself up to a new potential influx of energy. This new energy becomes a model or magnetic center through which you can create a new reality for yourself.

 

Health tips:

 

You would be wise to cooperate with this new evolutionary wave. Move through it, rather than resist it. The wave is an amplification of energy that must be channeled onward and outward, rather than something to become entangled within. This is how you prevent overwhelm.

 

Realize also that no matter how precisely you observe and measure the situation, there will always remain a high level of uncertainty of prediction for outcomes. Stay the course and remain observant.

 

Remember to conserve your personal energy. Chaos is energy rich. Be aware that making only slight possible changes may result in enormous productivity gains. Slight differences in one variable often have profound effects on the outcome of the whole system.

 

Look at this influx of energy from a perspective of leading it forward and of cooperating with it. You will eventually realize that you have created a wave. This wave can become the ride of your life.

Self Esteem: Do you know what I mean?

Self Esteem: Do you know what I mean? | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
We are living in a society where most of the adult population is insecure and functioning from a position of fear- fear of relating to others, of public speaking, of confronting an important issue, of letting go, of allowing the true self to emerge, etc. These insecurities and fears reflect in personal, family and social habits that compound the issues: food, alcohol and drug (ab)use; crime, violence and war, child abuse; physical and mental illness; environmental and economic irresponsibility; etc. as a result, it is easy to understand why today’s children are confused and why our society is searching for methods to overcome these fears.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that having a positive self-esteem is necessary for both adults and children as self-esteem affects how one views themselves and others, and also how one handles stress with life’s on-going challenges? For most people poor self-esteem happens in childhood, but that doesn’t mean that one cannot rise above the obstacles on one’s path.

 

Read this well written article to gain insight into how you can help your children and yourself experience positive self-esteem and experience the life you were meant to have.

 

Health Tips:

 

Always look within for the answers. Seek to remove mental barriers. Come from your higher self-your character rather than your personality. Meditate and reflect on your thoughts. Are they coming from a set of perceptions based on old recordings or do they come from a sense of awareness?

 

Let go of judgement. just accept what arises even if it’s something you don’t like.. Be a good observer. Infuse that thought with unconditional love which is a high energy frequency bringing you into the present moment.

Why You Need More Silence | Care2

Why You Need More Silence | Care2 | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Research is starting to show that background noise of modern life can have serious consequences on our health.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that sitting in silence and  keeping your body still can open up what’s known as spaciousness? You can focus on your body as a whole and discover the experience of stillness. When you are still you can experience the space of being. 

 

You can also focus on the space within your heart. Space can be experienced in your body, your heart, and your chakras. In this way you are discovering your sacred self.

 

Being in nature with the trees and other natural life forms relaxes your body from the everyday stresses of life. It is imperative you find a way to be in nature, even if it’s just your backyard, or a community garden setting, or green weeds in a sidewalk crack.

 

Health Tips:

 

 Close your eyes, open your heart and see yourself in a wooded area filled with trees that touch the sky. Breathe deeply with your nose. Allow the sounds of the birds and other small animals to  enter your senses. Breathe in the beautiful earthy scents of the soil, the trees, bushes, vines, and flowers. BE in that space totality in that moment. Let spaciousness wash over you and remove all the stress your body is holding onto.

Finding a Healthy Self and Maintaining It

Finding a Healthy Self and Maintaining It | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
When meeting Dr. Powell, I immediately recognized the depth of knowledge and experience she has gained in her decades of experience in the field of human potential.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that your perception and your imagination, whether limited or limitless, create your  emotional and biological reality? Many people go searching to find themselves (who they are), but we’re already here. When we were newborns we were innocent and pure. We didn’t have limited beliefs yet imposed on us from well meaning parents and others. 

 

We didn’t yet have education systems which many times try to form us into the status quo of being ‘normal’. Being ‘normal’ is scary. And we didn’t have other institutions which attempt to mold us into conformity using fear based methods. 

 

Unfortunately most humans have gone through this model. Many of those people are still searching for who they truly are. Many people are responding to challenges, obstacles, or difficult situations as if they are the only choice these people have. People don’t even realize they are making this choice. Unfortunately, our culture doesn’t promote the development of our emotional self.

 

People respond to challenges by saying “It’s easier said than done”. We hear this language all the time. It means that the individuals are anticipating that any attempt to meet the challenge will require a struggle. By thinking this way, people are setting themselves up for self-sabotage.  Many of us have been there. What if instead you said, “It’s easier done than said”?

 

“You can turn around your own perceptions of the world and its challenges, and discover naturally how to meet them with ease.” Ellie Drake, Founder BraveHeart Women. If you are open to the idea of acknowledging, accepting, allowing, and transforming your thoughts and your feelings, then you will be creating a different kind of life. A life not based on struggle, but on ease.

 

Health Tips:

 

Your body, mind, and spirit need to be in alignment, need to be balanced. Going within to find the answers is key. Trust is the foundation. Self-acceptance, self-worth or self-esteem, being in-joy, being happy all come from your inner garden. All the answers you seek are found within.

 

You can create a healthy life, a balanced life, a joyous meaningful fulfilled life. It all starts when you take that first baby step and go within. The portal is open… step into your new life.

The Gift of Presence

The Gift of Presence | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
No man is an island, and there is no question that we need others in our lives to maintain vitality. In fact studies show that interaction with others is a major factor in longevity. The simple act of reaching out lowers our blood pressure and releases endorphins. It is a fact that those who have the largest support systems also live the longest.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that it is imperative that you develop your own inner safety net and trust? As you work within, your confidence levels will rise and your potential will increase. You have the power within you to be courageous, to boost your self esteem, and to willingly share with others.

 

Maintain a practice of non-judgment, non-resistance, and detachment. Detachment is not passivity rather it is non-positionality. Learn to be flexible like a tree and bend with the wind. Be open to criticism and be open to others' viewpoints.

 

Health Tips:

 

When connecting with others come from your deeper self, rather than from your personality. Connect on a soul to soul level. This way any change in your environment, any disharmony will not affect how you stay connected.

 

No matter what stay connected to your family, your children, and your good friends within your circle. Support each other and honor each other with love and kindness. Come from a space of gratitude and grace.

 

Be mindful throughout your day. Be in the present moment, in the Now. Most of all give the gift of your presence to all in your circle. Remember what affects one affects all. There is no separation. What you eat, do and how you act has repercussions for others around the globe.

4 Self-Reliant Ways to Relieve Anxiety Now

4 Self-Reliant Ways to Relieve Anxiety Now | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know there are 4 self-reliant ways to receive anxiety which you can adopt and use for yourself? For some of you being close to others and socially interacting can cause feelings of anxiety while others want to interact socially and just can’t seem to make it happen.

 

Health Tips:

 

First step to freeing yourself from overwhelming anxiety is to be vulnerable and admit you have an anxiety problem. This is the hardest step. Once you make the commitment to allow yourself to be vulnerable and accept that you have an anxiety disorder all manner of help will arise. Once a commitment is made then clarity can enter.

 

Giving yourself permission to recite positive affirmations until they become part and parcel of you is an important step in your recovery. Repeating the positive mantras daily changes your inner dialogue with yourself. You become the person you were meant to be.

 

Meditation teaches you how to breathe and free your mind from distracting thoughts. Meditation as a practice allows you to be at peace within and let go. 

 

Gratitude is the final step in your recovery. Being thankful is a lifelong practice which teaches you what is truly important for your life.

If you’re struggling with a chronic illness, you may find yourself at times asking, “What did I do to deserve this? What am I doing wrong? Why am I not getting better?” As someone who has struggled with Lyme disease for 20 years now, I can tell you that these questions are understandable. The uncertainty and …
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Did you know that if you allow your negative thoughts to rise to the surface instead of trying to tamp them down and then process them without wallowing in them, you are giving yourself a real gift? You are surrendering in action.

 

Surrendering doesn’t mean capitulating. It means you are in an acceptance of what is and you can move ahead now with resolve.

 

Health tips:

 

1.  It’s never your fault. Allow yourself to think and be in an acceptance of what is and strive to change what can be changed.

 

2.  Your family and friends mean well but unless they walk in your shoes they don’t have a true understanding of what you’re going through. it’s okay. Allow a breath, say thank you, and continue on your path with others who do understand.

 

3.  Remember each of you is a healer of your own body. Make a commitment to infuse your words with positive thoughts and allow your actions to be in alignment with who you are. Practice being non-judgmental. Follow the path of non-resistance and detachment.

 

4.  Always allow your humorous side to bubble to the surface. Yes, even you. You know who you are. Laughter is a wonderful refreshing healer. Breathe deeply into your diaphragm through your nose and breathe out a delicious sweet breath which sounds like “haaaaaaaaaaa”.

 

5.  Try yoga, tai chi, or qi gong. Laughter yoga is fun for everyone. Play games, be a kid again. Life is way too short to do otherwise.

Guiding Principles For Living A Good Life | Care2

Guiding Principles For Living A Good Life | Care2 | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Based on the teachings of Art of Living founder, Ravi Shankar, each of the five guiding principles offers a way to find peace and contentment in everyday life.
Sandi Cornez's insight:

Are you allowing abundance to flow freely through you? In nature abundance is everywhere one looks. 

 

Nature provides an assortment of trees, bushes, flowers, plants, flowers, seeds, animals, insects, birds. Everyday year in and year out she continues to astound us with the sounds, scents, colors, smells, and tastes of myriad abundance. 

 

Nature represents a calm grounding space. How can you cultivate this calm in your life?

 

In nature every flower, tree, insect, bird is welcome. None are turned away because of their color, size, shape, or other distinguishing effect. Nature accepts all with grace and warmth. In truth you are nature. There is no separateness.

 

Let’s return to the question asked at the start of this post. How do you see and feel abundance in your life? Does having money make you feel rich or is there another piece of the puzzle to this question?

 

Money is a form of energy just like everything else in this world of ours. We live in a limitless world of possibility. You can be abundant in every area of your life when you connect and are aligned with the infinite universal mind.

 

Where do you feel abundant and where do you feel lack? To answer these questions you want to go within, to observe and reflect. Observe without judgement. Reflect with honesty without guilt, and detach from the outcome.

The Stage Called “Life” - Hippocrates Health Institute

The Stage Called “Life” - Hippocrates Health Institute | Abundance Thinking | Scoop.it
Inside each of us are two players on the stage of life: Love and Fear. These two players perform the daily dramas that create our perception of the world from moment to moment. Love accepts and rejoices at all that life gives us as lectures along the path to the spirit. Love has no desires …
Sandi Cornez's insight:

 

Did you know that love, inner peace, joyfulness, and deep breathing can help you to release fear? Love wraps itself around us with peace and healing, with joyfulness to do amazing things.

 

Byron Katie says “when you know you are living in the now, there is no past or future and therefore no stress. Is it possible to live totally without stress? Yes, indeed, it is”.

 

Stress, anger, jealously, and even prejudice are fear related. The ‘what if’s’, the ‘suppose it happens’, the ‘should’s’ will all fall away. Open your heart and mind to the unlimited music in your soul.

 

Health Tips:

 

Center or ground yourself upon awakening each day. Say your “I am” affirmations and meditate. Every moment is precious, appreciate and be in gratitude. Love yourself first so you will love others throughout your day.

 

Breathe deeply and let out a pleasurable sound, “Haaaaaaaaaaa”. Get into the habit of forgiving and begin with yourself. Speak words of courage, listen with your heart, serve others with respect and integrity, and always tread lightly upon the earth.
