The Power of Being Positive

We can’t control everything that life does to us, but we can control how we react to what life does.

How we start our day, determines how our day goes. If we wake up thinking it’s going to be an awful day, guess what, it will be!

Never underestimate the power of positive thinking!! Our thoughts really do affect how we react to life. Energy follows thoughts! Also known as manifestation. How many times have you been thinking of someone you haven’t seen in a long time, and you soon run into them, or they call.

It’s so important to see the glass half full, instead of half empty. To see the silver lining in the cloud. Our thought processing center can’t be in two places at once, so when you start thinking negatively, literally tell yourself to stop, and make yourself think of something positive. If you have to, say something positive over and over again (affirmations), even if you do not believe what you’re saying, your words get taken in by your subconscious mindand the subconscious controls many aspects of our lives.

We have an energy frequency, which is measured in megaHertz. The more positive we are, the higher our frequency , and we attract the same. For example you can not tune your radio to 96.9, and expect to hear 103.9.  Thus we can only attract positive,  if we are being positive!

Loise Hay, an author, who has done extensive work with emotions, states, “What we think about ourselves,  becomes the truth for us. When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds, we will find it in our lives.”

There are numerous, inspirational/motivational books, and web sites,  ( http://www.LouiseHay.com, simpletruths.com), which have positive quotes and affirmations. I suggest starting your day off with these, to help you have the best day possible. It may not be easy at first, but all things become easier with practice.

Remember, if you become inspired, you will inspire others, and they will… it’s a domino effect! Ever watch the movie” Pay It Forward”? I highly recommend it!Also Louise Hay’s book ” You Can Heal Your Life”.

Some quotes/affirmations:

“In the affinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole ,and complete. My life is ever new. Each moment of my life is new and fresh and vital.

I use my affirmative thinking to create exactly what I want. This is a new day. I am a new me. I think differently. I speak differently. I act differently.

Others treat me differently.

My new world is a reflection of my new thinking. It is a joy and a delight to plant new seeds, for I know these new seeds will become my new experiences.

All is well in my world.”   Louise Hay

“People often tell me motivation doesn’t last, and I tell them bathing doesn’t either. That’s why I recommend it daily”   Zig Ziglar

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase”  Martin Luther King

“It’s nice to be important, but more important to be nice”   Anonymous

“Today everything will be supplied to me”  Melody Beattie

 “All things are possible if you believe.” Mark 9:23

Reflexology

It has been estimated that 70%-80% of all disorders re stress related. Imagine the health benefits if we knew how to relieve the stress in our lives.

Foot reflexology is an excellent alternative health treatment that can do this.  It is the practice of stimulating specific areas on the feet to elicit the body’s self-healing.  All parts, glands, and organs of the body are represented as reflexes on the “anatomical body-map” on the feet. Every body part responds to a session, as there are 7000 nerve endings in the feet, all capable of relaying electrical messages to the appropriate body part/organ.  ¼ of all your bones are in your feet.  2000 pores in bottom soles of feet.

Reflexology treats the cause, not the symptom.  It is possible that unexpressed emotions stored in the body’s tissue could be the root of the problem.  For example, if there is a lot of sadness the lungs’ reflexes should have extra attention, for anger, the liver’s reflexes are important.

Reflexology induces deep relaxation, blood vessels dilate, thereby increasing circulation and delivery of oxygen and nutrients.  It also aids in the removal of toxins.  A session helps muscles relax, frees nerves along the spine and relieves pain.  The body can only process a certain amount of sensory input at one time.  With reflexology, the client’s focus shifts to the pleasing sensation of the foot massage and pays less attention to the pain.  The body closes the “gate” to pain input and has temporarily stopped processing it.  Pain releases much easier when the body is relaxed.  In addition reflexology stimulates the pituitary gland that releases endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.

Therapeutic grade (medicinal) essential oils can be used with reflexology for added benefits.  For example, peppermint is used for an inflammatory condition, or lavender for stress.

The Power of Essential Oils

Why essential oils are healing oils!   In order for anything to be healing to our bodies, it must be able to get into our cells.  This is the reason why essential oils (therapeutic grade) provide awesome healing.  Their molecules are tiny enough to penetrate our cell walls.  They enter our bloodstream and are capable of passing through the blood-brain barrier.  Essential Oils act like chemical messengers, and communicate with our cells even at the DNA level.  These oils evaporate easily, because of their small molecular size, making themselves available to be inhaled and share their aromas.

When you breathe oil molecules into the back passages of your nose, they go straight to the central part of your brain called the limbic system or emotional center, which manages all of your emotional experiences.  This part of the brain only responds to smell.  This is why certain feelings and memories are aroused when you smell a particular aroma.  For example, the smell of an apple pie may take you back to your grandma’s as a little child or the scent of someone’s perfume may remind you of someone.  Another aroma may unlock a memory you had buried deep, as a traumatic event, which you couldn’t deal with at that time.

Essential oils act differently than many medicines today.  They usually don’t cause side effects.  You know how you might take something for arthritis, and it helps with the pain, abut it may cause stomach problems, so you have to take another medicine now for your stomach problem.  It’s a vicious circle!  With the oils it’s usually the opposite. For example you may be using peppermint oil for your sinuses, and it may also give you extra energy, and help you to be more alert.  These oils can provide healing on all levels: physical, emotional and spiritual.  They are natural and were man’s first medicine.

Did you know that tow of the gifts the three wise men took to Jesus at his birth were the essential oils of frankincense and myrrh?  Frankincense was more precious than gold in those times, and it was used only for royalty.  Myrrh is an antibacterial and excellent for healing wounds.  It is believed that myrrh was used on umbilical cords, and may have helped Mary, Jesus’ mother heal from childbirth.
