Playing and Meditating with Mandalas

Playing and Meditating with Mandalas

Mandala with starsDo you think that coloring in is only for children?
Think again!

It can be very meditative and relaxing when we spend time to color in Mandalas.
Doing this is just for our own benefit and the outcome doesn’t matter. Nobody has to see it.
You don’t even have to keep the end result, the positive effects are in the process. Like with a lot of things in life.

Mandala – sanskrit for Circle – has been used since ancient times for self reflection, centering and relaxtion.

Looking at mandalas and coloring them in can be very therapeutic!
Be sure to take a break with the Mandala Medition in the You Tube video below.

Self Compassion A healthy way to deal with our feelings

Self Compassion

Self CompassionFeeling compassion for ourselves when we are experiencing difficult emotion may not be easy for everyone.

A lot of people attempt to avoid and deny their feelings of anxiety, anger or shame especially since these feelings seem ‘irrational’ at the time.

In the bookSelf-Compassion’ by Kristin Neff, PH.D. is a chapter called ‘Emotional Resilience’.
Wouldn’t it be nice if our parents and other caregivers would have been able to model and teach us how to be emotionally resilient?

The suggestion in this chapter is ‘to mindfully relate to our negative emotions by becoming aware how they feel in our body’ .

If we try to bury or avoid the feelings we don’t like they will continue.

K. Neff shares a research in which people were told not to think of white bear and then ring a bell if they did. The result was that “Bells pealed forth like it was Christmas time.”  Continue reading Self Compassion A healthy way to deal with our feelings

It is All done for Us

It's all done for meIt is all done ‘for us’!

What do you mean?

Have you ever heard people say ‘Why did you do this ‘to me’?’

Recently I learned from Panache Desai (link below) that instead of thinking that they have ‘done it to me’ I could look at it from a different perspective as in that ‘they have ‘done it for me’.

When we move from a victim consciousness where we believe that things are ‘done to us’ to a creator consciousness, our awareness changes to that it is ‘done for us’.

Everything that happens can be used as a spring-board for greater awareness. Continue reading It is All done for Us

Making Changes and the Limbic Lag

What is the Limbic Lag?

It is what happens when we want to do something and something is holding back.

BrainThe  two parts of our brain that this post will address are the lymbic system and the neo-cortex

The Limbic system is fully developed at birth, it tags experiences with emotions. When it is bad it will avoid it, if it is good it wants more. It sustains life and it adjusts its settings to what is safe.

It can be (re-)programmed through experience but not through knowledge, acceptance, being listened to, being loved. Continue reading Making Changes and the Limbic Lag

Another Step towards Emotional Well Being


Last week I finished another 8 week Resolve Course lead by 2 Counselors (who had to have at least 400 client sessions before training for this course) .

For the last session we had to stand in front of the group and share our Hero Story, which is about where we come from and how the course has brought healing to our life. Continue reading Another Step towards Emotional Well Being

Headaches Migraines and Affirmations

Migraine AuraMost people and even children have experienced headaches or even migraines.

What helps you when your head is aching?

There are lots of methods and which one we choose is probably right for us.

Do you think that what you believe is powerful?

Watch the Video below how a hospital in Beijing uses no medicines.

This post is about how headaches relate to attitudes.

Understanding the cause can be effective with clearing it.

Check list of Affirmations to use at the bottom of the post.

According to Annette Noontil (The Body is the Barometer of the Soul)

The attitudes related to headaches and migraines are as follows:

Headaches

Front of head, pressure

Holding on to old limitations and not seeing good in anything.

Back of head

Pressurizing yourself through impatience that you have not done enough

Migraines

Nervous headaches Back of head

Your communication to yourself that you are the one who needs to be accepted is not happening. Tell yourself you accept yourself no matter what has happened to you.

Nervous headaches front of head

Not communicating with your inner being to know yourself.

Not believing you can stand up for yourself and say what you want.

Letting others tell you what to do and not communicating to them that you dislike being told what to do.

I turned these into

Affirmations:

  • I feel more and more free to tell others that I dislike to be told what to do.
  • I am patient with myself and trust that I have done enough.
  • I let go of limitations and see the good in things.
  • I see myself and everyone as equal.
  • I allow myself to be the love that I am. I am at peace with myself.
  • More and more am I accepting myself no matter what happens to me.
  • More and more am I communicating with my Inner being to know myself.
  • I love the thought of feeling courageous enough to stand up for myself and say what I want.
  • I love the thought of feeling free to tell other that I dislike being told what to do.
  • I love the thought of standing up for myself and say what I want.
  • I am patient with myself and trust that I have done enough.
  • More and more am I letting go of limitations .
  • More and more am I seeing the positive aspects in everyone and everything.
  • More and more am I allowing myself to be the love that I am.
  • I love the thought of being at peace with myself.
