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 and 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, a 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!

What causes Hair Loss and How to Stimulate Healthy Hair Growth

What Causes Hair Loss and How to Stimulate Healthy Hair Growth Hair Loss can be caused by a variety of reasons.  When I was in my twenties I had alopecia due to stress.  I know what you’re thinking about “stress” in your twenties.  I stressed about everything back then, even growing older  and as I grew older I learned to accept the aging process with an open heart.   My hair eventually grew back, after being treated with Vitamin B injections in the affected areas.    Stress is a culprit that spark changes in your body’s routine physiological functions, certain medication can also change the physiological balance in your system, diet, lifestyle changes, illness, fungus infections, and genetics are just a few issues that can affect your hair growth. Did you know that 90% of your hair goes through a growing phase that lasts approximately 2 – 3 years and grows about 1/2″ per month?.  It then goes through a resting phase lasting  3 – 4 months before the hair falls out and new hair is r

The Skin

The Skin Skin is the body's largest organ and is responsible for numerous essential bodily functions, including breathing oxygen, eliminating carbon dioxide and other forms of waste, acting as a shield against toxins from the outside, and helping to maintain body temperature.  The skin is continually repairing and renewing itself.  It responds almost instantly to sudden changes in emotions, and who would have guessed that it is the body's main organ of sexual attraction.  The surface layer of the skin, which is composed of cells, sweat pores, and sebaceous glands, is covered with a thin sheath of dead cells, which are continually being pushed up to the surface from below.  If the dead cells are not removed, they can reduce and even block the skin's effort to breathe and eliminate waste.  At the surface lies a slightly acidic coating of oil, called the acid mantle, which can protect the skin against some bacteria.  Below the surface is a complex of sweat and oil glan

Chakras

Chakras   Energy from the spiritual, mental, and etheric planes which we use for healing, enters the physical plane through energy centers called chakras. The energy from the higher planes directly affects our emotions and our physical health.  We all have seven chakras (chakra means the wheel).  They appear within us as wheel-like openings on the surface of our etheric body.  They appear like long, thin funnels with a larger opening on the surface (kinda like an old hearing device).   Chakras are like terminals in which energy (prana) is transferred from the higher planes to the physical body.  Chakras can become blocked on the higher planes thus affecting the energy system which creates physical disease.  When chakras become blocked, it is necessary to open and balance them to maintain good health.  If the person does not have a medical condition, bringing the chakras into balance will promote rapid healing and recovery.    The First Chakra   Also, call the "R
