Let this Spring be the time when you let go of unwanted weight from your body and mind - and see how your emotions heal as you start to feel stronger from within. On the scale of joy, where are you? Do you feel happy and joyful and you're feeling inspired; or are you moody; feeling tired; sluggish and have no motivation? Do you go by in your day being triggered by multitude of things? You might be experiencing some of these symptoms because your body cannot hold any more toxic matter (physical, emotional, spiritual, mental) and it's time for a cleanse.
Don't blame your mood on winter. I don't understand weather conversations and statements with words "bad weather". Our beautiful Mother Earth has cold and warm climates. Some parts of the world have distinct four seasons and others not. The weather does what it's supposed to do in a given season in a given region. I love all kinds of weathers - when it's Sunny I embrace the Sun; when it's rainy - I enjoy the rain. Expansion and contraction is a constant cycle of life. Expansion and contraction is what is needed for the body.
I've talked about my holistic approach to self healing in previous blogs. You can read through the articles and find my tips and practices. When you can no longer stop yourself from negative reactions; when you see the glass half empty and the gloom of the world is your daily broadcast - you got to do something different. Doing the same thing and expecting a different result is a sign of madness.
You are not your physical body; you are not your emotions; you are not your thoughts; you are a soul residing in a physical body having a human experience. What you allow to flourish in your mind - you attract in your physical reality. No one and no thing can make you who you are. Years of conditioning through your upbringing; environment; beliefs; thoughts; actions and reactions have created a finely tuned "computer you" to react without you even thinking. The body memorized all your reactions and they are on repeat. Think of you driving to your daily stops; when you get to a destination, you can't recall much of the scenery along the way. You were somewhere else - and your body got you there. Every thought produces a chemical reaction; and thus the hormones you trigger, manifest a feeling and cause a reaction. You might hold-on to those feelings for a while and react in a moment to someone or something unrelated to your chemistry. Either way - if you don't tend to the garden of your mind; your chemical imbalance of the brain will take over and you will be a nuclear reactor blasting out at people around you and attracting situations in your life that you don't want.
As you are a physical; spiritual being, you cannot rely on one thing to keep you happy in life. Spirituality is not the answer for your pain and suffering if you are thinking toxic thoughts and bathing in anger every day. Healthy diet won't be healing if you feel bad all the time. You got to have balance in all the ways you are being and you have to love yourself in every way. Love yourself by the thoughts you choose to have; love yourself by being kind to others; love yourself with the foods that nourish your body; love yourself by the feelings you grow inside your heart...
