Forgiveness




Forgiveness

Carrying a grudge is a heavy weight that is exhausting for everyone.  The word forgive comes from the Greek language.  It means "to let go"  and that is exactly what "forgiveness" is.  It's working through and resolving your thoughts and feelings about an incident or a person so you don't have to let it keep you down, replaying it over and over in your head. 
 
Gift Yourself
 
Forgiveness is something you give yourself not the other person.  Forgiveness does not mean the other person that offended you is getting away with something.  It really helps you to stop being the victim, to take steps to control, protect and assert yourself.  If you want to revenge the best way to get it is by being happy, and forgiveness let you be just that "happy".  When you do not forgive you leave yourself open to negative people, negative energy, lower immune system, sickness, and disease.  I agree learning to forgive is not easy, but if you want happiness you have to learn to do it for "YOU".
 
SCREAM AND CRY
 
Screaming and crying is usually the first step.  Screaming allows you to get rid of the poison that is in your body..... SCREAM AND HOLLER (let it all out).  Then comes the crying, the sadness and disappointment, let it all come over you because only then you can start healing. 
 
Forgiving ~ Strike a Pose
 
Certain body postures can evoke specific feelings.  For a pose that generates feelings of security and forgiveness, put your left hand over your heart and your right hand over your navel.  Do this in a sitting position if you are feeling confused or standing if you are feeling confronted.   Doing this lying down, generate self-love.   Stay in this pose as you go through the process of letting go.
 
Details, Details, Details
 
You need to remember the details, trying to forget the details is another form of denial.  Remembering fully helps us take note of what we do not want to see repeated.  Though we are forgiving that person we do not want to give anyone permission to commit the same mistakes again and again.   Review the details like a slow-motion movie a few times until you can observe it without getting emotionally caught up in it until you feel like you are an outside witness observing it.   You will begin to have a different perspective. 
 
Trade Places
 
This is crucial to the forgiveness process;  mentally put yourself in the offender's place.  This allows you to get a better understanding of that person as to why the person acted the way they did, their fear, anger, hurt, and their need for respect, acknowledgment, and love.   Also explore your own role in the incident, instead of saying why did he (or) she do it, try saying why did I react the way I did.  
 
Love 
 
Sit quietly with your eyes closed and envision the person you are forgiven, then send that person loving thoughts, and tell them in your mind's eye that you love them.  I know that this will seem impossible, but you can do it.   Don't give up on the first or second try, practice makes perfect.  Keep trying this exercise until the anger slowly diminish and say "I release you from the grip of my sadness, disapproval, or condemnation".  Remember, just because you forgive does not mean you have to trust them.  Trust must be earned.  Release negativity and take back control of your life!  Energy Forever~

Fungal Infections of the Skin





What is a Fungal Infection?


Fungal infections range widely in their severity and significance.  Fungi are in constant contact with the skin, mucous membranes, and tissues of the body.  Most of these are harmless; some are irritating; others are severe and others are lethal.  Called mycoses, fungal infections are dealt with through the body's immune system.  They are most severe in people who have been taking antibiotics over a long period because antibiotics weaken the immune response and kill off bacteria that destroy fungi in the body. 
 
Common fungal infections include candidiases and tinea (including ringworm and athlete's foot) among others.  Fungal infections arise because of an impaired immune system.  The immune response has been weakened by accumulated toxins that already exist within the lymph, liver, intestines, and spleen, which require ongoing protection by the immune cells. 
 
All natural remedies are designed to cleanse the system and boost the immune response.  Here are some foods and lifestyle recommendations that promote an immune response. 

Foods to Eat
  • Raw, saltless sauerkraut
  • Chlorophyll-rich foods stop the spread of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms.  Good sources are barley grass and wheat grass (probably the most effective of all in treating yeasts), parsley, kale, collards, dandelion greens, watercress, romaine lettuce, and cabbage.  Avoid taking these with juice. 
  • Seaweed contains selenium and many other minerals that rebuild immunity.  Seaweed is rich in iodine, which was the preferred treatment for yeasts before antifungal drugs. 
Foods to Avoid
  • Excess salt
  • Fruits
Herbs to Treat Fungal Infections
  • Echinacea
  • Burdock root
  • Dandelion
  • Goldenseal
A healing remedy is to combine echinacea, burdock root, and dandelion as a decoction.  Boil 3 cups of water, then lower the flame; add 1 tsp. of each herb and simmer for ten minutes; turn off flame and steep for another ten minutes.  Drink one cup of tea.   Natural Healing~

Relaxing for Energy







Relaxing for Energy 
Everyone needs a little downtime in other words Rest & Relaxation (R&R), your body refuels when you relax.  As you breathe deeply you take in more oxygen, your blood pressure lowers, your heart muscle relaxes and pumps more blood, and all tense muscle start to relax.

  • Finding Peace, Piece by Piece
Used by itself or in combination with visualization, autogenic relaxation, a form of progressive muscle relaxation, is a useful and effective way to let go of tension.  It relaxes you, body part by body part, inch by inch.  Created more than 50 years ago by doctors Johannes H. Schultz and Woff gang Luthe in Germany, autogenic relaxation works by a process of mentally talking your body into a relaxed state.  The word autogenic means "self-regulation" (without outside influence). According to the experts, the following is how to use autogenic relaxation to help banish the tension and stress that robs your energy.
  • Be comfortable ~ wear loose clothing, lie down, unplug your phone, and find a quiet place
  • Set the scene ~ to speak to yourself in a soft, slow modulated voice
  • Find repose from head to toe ~ you accomplish this by imagining each body part feeling warm, heavy, and thoroughly relaxed.
  1. Face & head.  Feel your facial and scalp muscles relax.  Imagine that your face feels like a pool of calm water. 
  2. Neck and shoulders. Take extra time to focus on these commonly tense spots until you can actually feel the muscle tension unwind.
  3. Arms.  Work downward from your right shoulder to your right hand.  Do the same on the other arm.
  4. Fingers. Slowly relax each finger on your right hand, one at a time, until you feel your entire hand go limp.  then do the other hand.
  5. Chest. Relax your entire chest and upper torso.
  6. Abdomen. After relaxing your chest and arms, concentrate on your abdomen.
  7. Buttocks and back. Release the tension in these areas to finish relaxing your entire torso.
  8. Thighs, calves, and legs. Do one leg at a time, making sure they're both entirely relaxed.
  9. Toes.  Relax the big toe on your right foot, then the other toes.  Repeat with your other foot.
Don't be discouraged if you don't get it the first time, as with anything, practice makes perfect... So, be patient and learn about your body as you go.  It is recommended to practice for 20 minutes each session.
