It is very important to do the things that help free the build up of stress and trauma in your body. Positive thinking and distraction is not enough. This is a real world wide trauma occurring and your body is reacting on a daily basis. With each restriction or lockdown the stress multiplies if it is not adequately released in an ongoing way.

Don’t wait until your body hits overload to do something about it. Do something everyday. The list in the article is a good way to keep on top of the creeping stress build up. A few people have asked me to create a pdf of this list so they can check items off. It is on my to do list.

The balance your body needs in a revved up world

“in 1990, 49 per cent of Europeans felt their work schedule was too strenuous. By 2000, that had increased to 60 per cent – and those who felt themselves to be rushed were almost twice as likely to complain of classic stress disorders, such as back pain, or tight shoulders and necks.” Robert Colvile, TheContinue Reading

Taking real control of your health

“In a meditative state of mind, we can become aware that we are not a body, but rather limitless, non-local awareness animating or residing as a body. Resting in the spacious flow of loving awareness – which some call God – we discover that we already have, right now within us, everything we could possiblyContinue Reading

HEAL Documentary

“Your body loves you, it loves you unconditionally, and it’s not letting you down. Have patience and have compassion. Take one day at a time, you’re going to get there. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been sick, you can heal, and always remember that, and never forget it.” Anthony Williams from the movie documentary,Continue Reading

Staying vital and alive for a lot longer, as you age

“There’s …a difference between extending life and prolonging vitality. We’re capable of both, but simply keeping people alive – decades after their lives have become defined by pain, disease, frailty, and immobility – is no virtue.” (David A. Sinclair PhD, Lifespan, 2019) Australian researcher Dr Sinclair has just released a book on his research intoContinue Reading

Getting Present through your Body

“As a path to mindfulness, body awareness offers a natural route. This is because, at its core, mindfulness is about living with greater presence, which is a natural state for our bodies, which are moving in the here and now. It is only our thoughts that can drift off into the past or the future.”Continue Reading

Your body – the door way to greater health

“The remnants of pain left behind by every strong negative emotion that is not fully faced, accepted and then let go of, join together to form an energy field that lives in the very cells of your body.” (Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth, 2005) Last week I quoted from Eckhart’s book that preceded The PowerContinue Reading

Learn to say NO to a lot of things

“…focusing on everything means focusing on nothing. It’s almost impossible to accomplish anything significant when you’re racing through an endless litany of tasks and emergencies. And yet this is how many of us spend our days, weeks, months, years – sometimes, our entire lives.” (Michael Hyatt, Free to Focus, 2019) I’ve talked about this informationContinue Reading

Expanding your Brain in Real-Time

“The concept that mind creates matter is not a metaphysical proposition. It’s a biological one….your brain creates matter in the form of neurons and synapses in response to your consciousness.” (Dawson Church, Mind to Matter, 2018) Lots of research is coming out now (thanks to imaging machines and brain electromagnetic field readers) that the pathwaysContinue Reading

Neuro-Immunologists – a western medicine group, that are finally getting it.

“It wasn’t considered professionally respectable to investigate connections between the brain – the province of neuroscience – and the immune system – the province of immunology.” (Edward Bullmore, PhD, The Inflamed Mind – A radical new Approach to Depression, 2018) I’m fascinated how the immune system and the nervous system interact. How inflammation in theContinue Reading
