Health

Meditation:

One of the wisest practices for health, well being and spiritual growth is daily meditation.  It improves our mental clarity, creativity and dissolves negative patterns of addiction.  Meditation is good for every area of our life and it brings harmony, balance and goodness.

Recent Study at Harvard – Meditation practice helps to increase brain function, reduce the effects of aging on the brain and improve concentration and memory – Dr. Sara Lazar.

A growing body of research suggests that meditation can significantly enhance our immune system – U of Wisconsin and Harvard in 2003

Long-term meditators – improvements in sleep, blood pressure, calmer heartbeat, better circulation and younger biological and functional ages.  They pay significantly less money to doctors – 87% lower heart disease cost.

Meditation allows people to focus on solutions through relaxation and peace of mind.  It improves listening, learning and memory skills.

Meditators are superior learners and remember more of what they study.

Workplace Results:
Improved creativity, productivity and performance.
Greater job satisfaction and reduced turnover.

Being Healthy:
Health allows us to maximize our potential in all areas of our development.  The body and brain is approximately 70% water, so drink lots of water.  We need to drink half of our body weight in ounces per day.  For example, if you weigh 160 lbs, divide by 2 = 80 ounces or 10 – 8oz glasses of water a day.  Our body needs the right fuel – 70% green – veggies, salads, fruits and high water content nutrition daily.  If you want to live, eat foods that are alive!

Our body thrives on high water content and alkaline foods.  Eating nutritious foods and drinking lots of water will promote proper body weight.  A dehydrated body retains weight and eating processed foods/fast foods, sugar and soda clogs our digestive system and puts on weight.  8 out of 10 Americans are overweight or obese.

In addition to eating healthy and drinking lots of water on a daily basis, exercise is very important.  There are many good forms of exercise.  The most powerful exercise is rebounding – bouncing on a mini-trampoline.  According to NASA, it is the most effective exercise on the planet and astronauts rebound as part of their conditioning program.

Communication:
Being alive on this planet requires interacting with other people and being an excellent communicator is key to achieving successful relationships.  People have different styles of communicating.  Some are visual and fast paced, others are a auditory and a little slower and speak with more resonance and tone and others are more feeling oriented and tend to move more slowly.  Although you use all of these three forms of communication, you have a primary communication strategy.  Practice all three of these styles of communication to be a flexible communicator.

Communication is 7% words, 38% tone and 55% body language.  Most people focus on the words which is the least accurate form of communication. (This explains why most people do not do what they say.)  Make sure to focus on people’s tone and body language to determine the congruency of a person’s communication, including yours.

“The quality of my life is directly related to the quality of my communication with myself and with others.”

hummer about to feed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hummingbirds are incredible creatures.  They can hover in mid-air by flapping their wings 12 to 90 times per second and they are the only bird capable of flying backwards.

Hummingbirds weigh less than a ping pong ball.  They eat just enough every day to last them through the night.

Hummingbirds can teach us important things in life.
It is wise to keep it light!

Enlightenment gives us a definite clue in the very center of the word.
Light is at our center.  We are Spiritual Beings of love, light and energy.

Why let situations, circumstances, relationships and things in life get us down?

Our culture tends to become attached to “things” and to worry about the future or live in the past.  By keeping things light and staying in the present moment, we can disengage from the drama and are much more likely to be healthy, happy and successful.

The more present we are, the more aware we are instead of spending valuable time and energy worrying or getting lost in our minds.  Being present is a powerful, healthy and resourceful place to be.

Keep it real,
Keep it clear,
Let it flow.

Have a wonderful and prosperous day!

Yogananda - Keep Calm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Beneath the temporary mental masks of those whose behavior I dislike, I see the perfect love of my great Beloved, even as I see it in those worthy souls that I love.  To stop loving is to stem the purifying flow of love.  I shall loyally love every being, everything, until I find all races, all creatures, all animate and inanimate objects embraced by my love.  I will love until every soul, every star, every forsaken creature, every atom, is lodged in my heart; for in the infinite love of God, my breast of eternity is large enough to hold everything in me.”

Yogananda

Have a blessed day!

golden link“Every person is a golden link in my chain of good.”

Every person and everything is connected because we are all made up of energy.  All energy is created from the same original substance and by the creative force of the universe.  It is available to everyone and does not discriminate.

There is an abundance of this creative substance and energy.  All things are possible.

Start where you are.  Do what you can with what you have.  Do your best at all times and do all the good you can each day and each moment.

Trust where you are is where you are supposed to be.  This is the place for you to start.  Take the next step from where you are.  One thing leads to another even though you may not be able to see the full plan from where you are.

We are not given the entire picture, just the next step.  We must have faith that by taking the next step, the next one will present itself.

“Everything is happening in perfect, divine order.”

Life is a game.  We have to learn how to play again.  As children we learned how to play and far too often as adults we stop playing and having fun.  Being serious is not the solution – being creative and curious like a child is.

“Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves.”
