I am coming close to figuring out what my beliefs are in my life right now. I guess I could say they are a compilation of spiritual, philosophical, scientific, and religious beliefs. If it touches my heart and soul, I have a good feeling that I am on the right path to the truth. I am open to any other suggestions lol!
I meditate as often as possible or when I feel I need it which is usually about 20 minutes every day. This daily practice has improved my life tremendously.
If you want to connect to the Source of all creation, meditate.
If you want guidance in your life, meditate.
If you want to quiet your mind and calm your thoughts, meditate.
If you want to be a witness to your thoughts, meditate.
If you want to de-stress and relax your mind and body, meditate.
If you want to improve emotionally, mentally, spiritually, physically, and socially, meditate.
I came across a video that I would like to share with you called, “What is Meditation and Why Should I Do It?” from Oprah’s SuperSoul Sunday:
Think about it… when these things are stripped away from your identity: upbringing, beliefs, thoughts, fears, character, medication, education, knowledge, skills, abilities, job, make-up, hair coloring, implants, tattoos, piercings, contacts, glasses, clothing, jewelry, accessories, possessions, etc., what is remaining? THE REAL YOU!
I love this quote from Canadian author, Danielle LaPorte: “Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?”
Essential oils are extremely popular these days. There is an oil available for just about every health issue out there. Many people are skeptical of what these oils can do. For the last several years, I have come to realize that medication can help in one area but harm another. Did you ever watch a commercial for medication and afterwards all the possible side effects are identified? The list goes on and on. I will do whatever I can to avoid taking medication (because of side effects and also addiction). Of course, any serious health issue must be addressed immediately by a medical professional. I am now learning about pure and natural essential oils, and I’ve started using them. I don’t know if it’s me and my belief in them (placebo effect) or if they really do work. I guess it’s all what you believe. I can honestly say, I believe they really do work for me. A few minor issues I’ve been experiencing lately have actually improved. I must say, I am feeling pretty good right now! I am always looking for natural ways to live a healthy lifestyle. Meditation (#1), exercise (walking for me), yoga (men can do this too :), a positive mindset, repeating affirmations, a healthy diet, lots of water and good rest, and giving up coffee, tea, and soda have all greatly improved my health, physically and mentally.
