NEZEL PADAYHAG: “5 Bad Habits That Weaken Your Energy Field And Positive Habits To Replace Them With”

Your energy field or the electromagnetic energy field that surrounds you depends much on your health and lifestyle.

It reflects your personal energy and affects your ability to connect with others. A healthy energy field is a good indicator of living the life you want.

If it’s weak, you will lack motivation and vitality for making your life better, personally and professionally. A weakened energy field also makes you more susceptible to negativity.

While there are scientific explanations behind the feelings of fatigue, in most cases it still comes down to one important thing, your energy has weakened because of bad habits.

These habits might vary, from wrong diets and bad sleeping patterns to stress, activities that harm your health, even not following your purpose.

Weakened energy field is the symptom of some underlying problem, it is an indicator that something in your lifestyle is draining your energy and disrupting your energy flow.

You fail to see the harm done because it happens gradually and on a daily basis. When you notice the difference your energy field has already weakened.

To protect your energy field you need to know the things that weaken it, as well as the ways to strengthen it.

It all comes down to how you structurize your lifestyle and what kind of habits you integrate in it. Here are some bad habits you should avoid and replace with positive ones.

5 Bad Habits That Weaken Your Energy And What To Do Instead:

1. Addiction to social media.

Even though there are good and inspirational things that you see on social media, it is still outnumbered by the negative ones. If you’re not aware, you’re likely to be influenced by the negativity that you get from there. The amount of time and energy spent in pointless internet browsing also diminishes your energy.

What to do instead: Spend more time with people who uplift your energy.

There are people who simply good for your energy. Instead of being sucked into social media feeds, meet up with someone who uplifts your energy. Speak with them, converse on topics both of you are passionate about, talk about things that inspire you.

2. Poor sleep habits.

Regardless of what you do in the wee hours of the night, not having enough sleep is not good for your body. Your mind and body need adequate rest to be able to function well for the next day. A good sleep is a wise investment to gain more for the following day.

What to do instead: Have an exercise regimen.

Get your body moving. Engaging in physical activities gets your blood circulating and your energy going. Create a habit where you engage yourself physically, like swimming, running, yoga, walking, or any other activities that can sweat you.

3. Staying indoors all the time.

Not getting enough sunshine and fresh air is not good for your energy. The sun, most especially, provides you with warmth and uplifts your energy levels. It promotes the production of vitamins in your body. Staying indoors might make you depressed.

What to do instead: Go for a walk.

Walking has been found to have lots of mental and physical benefits. Aside from improving your mood and getting fresh air, walking is also the best way to get sunshine on your skin. The sun’s energy not only gives you a dose of vitamin D but it also purifies your mood.

4. Poor eating habits.

Poor eating habits accompanied by an unhealthy lifestyle is probably the greatest drainer of your energy. Most processed foods make you feel tired and lethargic. Organic and naturally grown foods are packed with natural energy that replenishes what your body loses.

What to do instead: Follow a nutritious diet.

A nutritious diet simply consists of naturally grown food. If it’s possible, grow your own organic veggies and fruits. Eating raw food is also a great way of getting the sun’s energy into your body.

5. Overthinking and stress.

Stress is the biggest enemy of the modern times. We overthink and stress about things daily. This is an addiction we all suffer from. Overthinking and dealing with stressful people every single day is almost inevitable, however, almost. It can be significantly reduced.

What to do instead: Do deep breathing and meditation exercises.

Deep breathing is a quick saver, especially when you’re feeling exhausted. Simply close your eyes, then slowly inhale and exhale deeply. Doing this for at least 5 minutes will calm your mind. A regular meditation is healthy and keeps you connected to your inner being.

Your body is said to be the temple of your soul. When you take good care of it, your soul is likely to shine, and this raises your energy levels. These are simple strategies, but if done on daily basis they can strengthen your energy field and keep negative energies at bay.

BODY MIND SOUL SPIRIT: “How You Are Affected By Your Sleep Direction”

The direction your head faces while sleeping has a strong effect on your physical and mental well-being.

The Indian Ayurvedic tradition believes that sleep positions decide the kind of energy we want coming into our life, with sleeping facing the East and South being the most beneficial.

Vishnu Purana says: “It is beneficial to lie down with the head placed eastward or southward. The man who lies down with his head placed in contrary directions becomes diseased.”

The Science

We all know that Earth has a magnetic pole stretched from north to south with the positive pole at the north and the negative pole at the south. Now, health scientists tell us that humans like many other animal species have an innate magnetic compass, with the positive pole at the head and the negative one at the feet.It is common knowledge that like poles repel and unlike poles attract not only scientific but also in social spheres. When we lay our heads on the north side, the two positive sides repel each other and there is a struggle between the two.

Earth revolves from west to east, and sun’s magnetic field enters earth from east side. This magnetic force enters our head if we lie with head on the east and exits through feet, promoting cool heads and warm feet as per the laws of magnetism and electricity. When the head is laid towards the west, cool feet and hot head. It results an unpleasant start for morning.Now we may realize why the ancient people said, that our intellect improves by east facing head.

Further studies have suggested that humans who sleep in an East-West position have far shorter REM (Rapid eye movement) sleep cycles, in which dreams occur, compared with North-South sleepers who got more REM sleep.

REM sleep is the final phase in our deep sleep cycle and it usually takes up 20-25% of the total sleep time. There are various theories about what REM is from neural pathway development to memory consolidation, but science is agreed that it is a vital function and so maximizing your amounts could help promote greater health and well being.Our sleep positions may have some beneficial effects, from increased REM sleep and energy flows to improved and regular patterns. As more research is carried out more will be known.

Impact On Health

  • Earth’s magnetic field is in North-South direction and this retards the blood flow through brain capillaries and affect the functioning of brain cells.
  • If a person doing stressful job sleeps with head facing South, he would get fresh comparatively faster and it has been noticed that the efficiency of such people has increased significantly.
  • While when a person sleeps with his head facing the north, magnetic field of the body and earth are not in harmony and this results in the disturbed blood circulation resulting in mental unrest and a disturbed sleep.
  • Due to the repulsion, You may lose 50% of your willpower and your soul power may not increase while you sleep pointing your head towards North. Your physical and mental health may suffer.
  • Since the earth has a greater magnetic force, we are always the losers, and rise in the morning with headache or heaviness.
  • When we lay our heads in the southern direction, there is mutual attraction and we wake up fit, fresh and free, unless afflicted by some illness.

Taking into consideration, the laws and fundamentals of Magnetism, South Pole is the source of positive energy while North Pole is considered to be the source of negative energy. If we sleep with our head (brain) faces the North, the tired brain gets negative energy from the North direction, it will take more time for it to revitalize and work efficiently. Also, if this continues, the constant exposure of the brain to negative energy might reduce the efficiency of the brain gradually.

KIMBERLY SNYDER: “The Amazing Healing Benefits of Gratitude”

Healing Benefits of Gratitude

If you’re alive and reading this, you have something to be grateful for.  That’s great news!  This post will give you support in practicing gratitude on a regular basis, so you can better heal yourself, while lowering stress and anxiety, enhancing your sleep, and improving your relationships.

The Healing Benefits of Gratitude

You may not realize that something as simple as expressing gratitude — something that costs nothing and takes very little time — can have such an impact on your health.   Yoga Masters have been teaching for centuries that gratitude is a key component of a happy, balanced and healthy life, but it’s nice to see that it’s in alignment with modern findings.  A comprehensive look at gratitude and its effects  [1]  showed that when you routinely appreciate others or even just the positive parts of your life, you can experience:

  —Less aggression  [2]

  —Heightened feelings of altruism, empathy, warmth, a greater desire to treat friends, family, and strangers with more kindness (you may even set off a chain of random acts of kindness!).  When someone does something nice for you, you’ll be inspired to pay it forward  [3]

  —Reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety, and more optimism  [4]

  —More trust in others 

  —Extra intrinsic motivation to do and achieve more  [5]

  —More satisfaction from relationships (romantic relationships also get a boost from gratitude!)  [6]

  —Better ability to deal with criticism/less sensitive to others’ negativity

  —Better sleep

  —Lowered likelihood of developing a drug or alcohol problem

  —Lowered risk of eating disorder (thanks to a healthier body image)

   —Quicker recovery from post-traumatic stress

 

The review suggests that there could actually be a causal relationship between gratitude and well-being.  That means increasing gratitude could directly enhance many different aspects of your life, most notably your health.  Could there be an easier, or more inexpensive way to enhance both your happiness and health?  (Okay, sometimes gratitude can be challenging when you’re feeling down — especially in the beginning–but with practice, it becomes much easier, I promise!)  Training yourself to think this way only takes a few minutes at a time, per day or even per week. Eventually, it will help shift your whole perspective on life in a much more positive way.

What Is Gratitude, Really?

That seems simple enough to answer, right?  You can feel gratitude when someone helps you out, but being thankful isn’t always related to another person.  Are you thankful for your warm clothes in the winter, even if you purchased them yourself?  What about your meals, even if you’re the one who has to prepare and cook them?

No matter what, you can focus more on the positive and choose to feel gratitude for anything, or anyone, at any time.  Once you get into the habit of consciously appreciating the positives around you, that attitude spreads over into the times when you aren’t actively practicing the feeling of thanks.  I do this when I walk down the street or wander into my backyard and gaze at the lemon tree.  I express gratitude every day for each and every unique, beautiful tree and plant I see.  I think we should all be more grateful for nature and her beauty every day!

Final note about the research. When comparing feelings of gratitude to other areas of the subjects’ lives in the studies, there were correlations between gratitude and:

  —Feelings of satisfaction with life in general

  —Feelings of living life to the fullest

  —More self-acceptance and personal growth 

  —A feeling of staying true to themselves

  —The belief that they have quality relationships in their lives

How to Practice This Universal Language

Learning to practice gratitude isn’t a long, drawn-out process.  You can start right now and begin noticing differences in how you feel and your outlook on life in just a few weeks, even if you’re not practicing daily.

Keep a gratitude journal.  At the end of the day or week, write down five things you’re grateful for.  This could be something as simple as being happy the weather was warm enough for you to hike before work earlier in the week or that your spouse did the dishes.  You can even be grateful for the lemons that you use to make your hot water with lemon in the morning, that fill you with beautifying vitamin C and enzymes!

Set an alarm on your phone that will go off periodically throughout the day.  Each time it goes off, stop to remind yourself of something you’re grateful for.

Don’t jump right out of bed at the sound of your morning alarm.  Take a minute to take a few deep breaths and think of a few things that you’re happy to have in your life or experience, whether it’s a beautiful sunrise or the warm blankets you have covering you.

Do something nice for someone else, family or stranger, even if it’s just giving them a compliment and thanking them for something they did.  Spreading joy and showing your appreciation for another human being not only brightens their mood, but yours, too!

Talk with your spouse or best friend at the end of the day about what you’re grateful for.  These daily talks are more interesting than asking if they took the trash out or fed the dog, and may open the door to strengthen your relationship, especially if you start naming things you’re grateful for in each other.

Leave little notes for yourself around the office or at home that remind you of the things you’re grateful for.  Running across those during a stressful moment could make you feel better.  Try sticking them on the top of your smoothie cup or one of the meals you’ve packed for the day.

Really think about what you’re thinking. No, that isn’t a typo.  Your thoughts affect your mood, and you’ll be happier if you’re thinking thoughts of gratitude!  When a negative thought crosses your mind (it happens to everyone, of course!), take a closer look at it.  Are you just feeling grumpy and turning your bad mood into one big growing ball of negativity?  Was your ego, the image and labels you hold about yourself, somehow wounded in some way?  Is there any truth in the thought that you can use to change your situation or use as a catalyst to turn your thought into something more positive?  Once you glean the useful bits from your negative thoughts, kick the rest and give your thoughts a more positive spin.  Here’s an example. Let’s say you tried something new and failed.  Instead of saying, “I’m a failure,” remind yourself that failing — sometimes multiple times — brings you closer to your goal.  It’s still progress and you can still learn from it.  And that’s something to be grateful for.

Tell someone that you appreciate them and why.  They’ll feel good, and so will you!

Start Today!

Use this today as a starting point for a lifetime of feelings of gratitude.  Your whole outlook on life will change once you give yourself that nudge, and you’ll feel better in so many different ways when you begin focusing on the positives.  Look at what you do have, be thankful, and strive to reach out to help other people and keep the goodwill going.

The goodness in your life will blossom in even more abundance as you do.

Now here’s my turn: I’m sending gratitude to YOU for being you and part of this wonderful community.

Love,

Kimberly

THE AURAS EXPERT: “Aura Cleansing For Health And Well-Being”

Aura Cleansing for Health and Well-Being.jpg

As we accumulate unwanted energies in daily life, regular aura cleansing supports health and well-being.  Like psychic dust bunnies, we go around collecting debris on our aura, until we finally do something to cleanse it…

It is the same with personal hygiene.  If you do not bathe, your body will become dirtier and dirtier.  Gradually the smell becomes unbearable.  Eventually, your body even becomes a breeding ground for disease and bacteria.  If you do not cleanse your aura, your spiritual energy system will also become ‘dirtier and dirtier’.  Eventually you become unpleasant for others to be around (though they may not consciously understand why).  Your energy system then begins to attract lower vibrations which are also unhealthy for you and others.  And for those around you after an aura healing will believe it to be an aura cleansing spell, getting to enjoy your lightness again.

In modern culture, we expect people to take care of their personal hygiene by bathing regularly, if not daily.  But we are not yet so spiritually evolved!

Cleansing your Aura

Just like washing your hands cleans one part of your body and washing your face takes care of another… different approaches to aura cleansing will support you in clearing different aspects of your energy system.  Some aura clearing approaches are more lightweight–in terms of personal hygiene–like changing your clothes, or putting on deodorant.  They are still useful, but they can’t replace bathing!  Other methods of aura cleansing go much deeper–equivalent to having a good scrub-down, or going for a detoxifying spa treatment.

Options for Cleansing…

  • Bathing with Epsom Salts – Water helps wash away dirt, both physically and energetically.  Adding Epsom Salts to your bath stimulates the flow of your own energy and also draws minor psychic debris out of your aura.
  • Swimming – Submerging yourself in water helps cleanse your aura.  As ocean water contains salt and minerals, it is especially useful for drawing minor psychic debris out of your aura.
  • Sunlight – Gentle exposure to sunlight stimulates the flow of your own energy.  Some lower vibrations cannot exist with exposure to bright light.

FOUR MOST POWERFUL APPROACHES TO AURA CLEANSING…

1. Aura Meditation – Even basic meditation helps you relax and release.  Aura meditation works directly with releasing unwanted energies through grounding, clearing your aura, energy channels and chakras.  One of the most powerful ways to cleanse and care for your aura is energy-based aura meditation.

2. Aura Healings – In an aura healing, the healer supports you in cleansing unwanted energies out of your system.  The healer assists you in grounding out psychic debris, releasing blocks and helps you get your own energy flowing.

3. Aura Readings – Often we confuse other people’s energy with our own energy.  When we mistake foreign energy for our own, we do not want to release it.  We hold on to it because we think it is us!In a clairvoyant aura reading, a reader can help you identify your own energy and discern foreign energy.  When you recognize an energy is not you, it is much easier to release.

4. Feeling your Emotions – When your emotional energy is blocked, it creates congestion and back-up throughout your spiritual energy system.  This makes it easy to get stuck with unwanted energies.  Allowing yourself to feel hidden emotions creates a release of energy.  This movement and flow supports you in cleansing psychic debris.

Other Options for Aura Cleansing…

  • Wind -Standing with an open body posture in a strong wind supports you in releasing unwanted energies.  As sea breezes contain moisture, salt and minerals, ocean winds are especially beneficial for aura cleansing.
  • Gardening or Being in Nature – Through gardening and being in Nature, you come in direct contact with the earth.  This helps you get grounded and release unwanted energies out of your system.
  • Creativity – Creating something you’re enthusiastic about gives you a ‘creative high’.  These surges of creative energy stimulate the flow of your own energy and support you in releasing blocks and unwanted energies.

NEDA HASAN: “Top Twelve Ways to Raise Your Frequency To Attract A Vibrant, Enjoyable Life”

1562659-7

1. Sunlight

Not only is sunlight a way to make up for lost Vitamin D, but it is used to help stabilize the mood. You can shift stagnant, dull energy of the room by just opening your windows and letting light come through.

2. Sound

Solfeggio Frequencies and Binaural Beats, especially with the use of headphones, have been used to help diminish anger, depression, anxiety, and the list goes on. They are out there on YouTube for free. Check out 396 Hz on Audio Entrainment’s Channel. I would like to add that this is a perfect alternative for anyone who is lazy and reluctant to meditate. You can also listen to uplifting tunes that lift your spirit.

3. Herbs

Lavender Oil has a calming effective on the mind, especially before you go to bed. Besides the health benefits, basil is known to cure sadness and depression. Angelika root has been used centuries ago to get rid of evil spirits, but now it is used for upset stomachs, enhancing sex drive, and eliminating negativity. It should not be taken in heavy dosages, however. Burning Eucalyptus is known to help with colds. Green Oat is said to be good for addictions of any sort. Always check with your doctor if you want to consume any special herbs. Burning it however definitely will provide your home with a relaxed feel.

4. Enjoyable Exercise

Exercise, in and of itself, is known to release endorphins that help one feel better and release stress, but joy in exercise escalates the experience. If you enjoy dancing or playing tennis, do it! When you are having fun and burning calories at the same time, you are not only helping your emotional health, but physical health as well. Feeling like your workout is a burden will not help you to lift your frequency as like attracts like and a miserable journey cannot yield a happy outcome. The Key is to feel a sense of joy.

5. Water

Spending Time in Water will not only cleanse your body, but attract positive energy as Water is second closest to Source Energy, the first Being Light. This information is confirmed by Teal Swan, a legendary Spiritual Teacher. She advises to take a glass of water, set the time for a few minutes, and focus positive thoughts toward the water glass. Then drink it! Repeat this exercise for two weeks.

6. Appreciation

An attitude of gratitude is the key to abundance. Keep a Journal of positive things that cause you to feel joy just by thinking about it. It could be as menial as the violet curtains in your bedroom, or the bath filled with roses your children decorated for you when you came back from work. Positive Feelings are even more powerful than positive thoughts, so more joyful situations and thoughts will manifest. They trick is to just set aside time every day to dwell in a state of love.

6. Visualization

Visualization is the way to make it clear to the universe what it is you really want in this physical realm. When you hold up images you love and make them your phone wallpaper, or put up a vision board you see and have access to everyday, you help to materialize your goals. You cannot help but to have positive focus towards your dreams or whatever it is you are trying to attract. Visualization helps to develop clarity of what one wants in life. And you can keep adding to that board when your ideas expand. Imagining your dream lifestyle causes you to feel happy. Think of it this way: for a watchmaker to create a watch, he has to have an image of the finished result of the watch in his mind. It is the same way with your goals. Imagination is powerful. The journey becomes much easier once you know exactly just what your goals are.

7. De-clutter your Living Space

If you have a messy work desk, you can attract stressful situations. Cleaning up every once a week can remove stagnant, non-moving energy in a room to leave fresh vibrant energy flowing through. You will also feel more lively and in control of your life.

8. Eat More Fruits, Vegetables, and Nuts

Vegetables such as cucumbers not only add to clearer skin and help to reverse the aging process, but lift your energy. Nuts like almonds help with Vitamin D and help balance serotonin levels. Vegetables are not only great for vitality, but they resonate at a higher frequency that meat and processed food. They contain more life energy than dull foods like processed cheese and coffee. Never underestimate the power of Diet to transform your life.

9. Break Up with Stress

Stress weakens the immune system and can literally make one feel sick and be sick. Psychosomatic illnesses, such as excessive vomiting, are often caused by negative thoughts. Stress decreases energy and can lead to aging. When one is stress, they tend to make impulsive choices that make them feel good only physiologically and temporarily such as reaching for sugary snacks, which open the door to more disease and problems like cancer and diabetes. When one is in a relaxed state, they are less likely to manifest diseases in their life. And if diseases do arise, they are able to treat it quicker. Disease cannot survive in a body that is at ease. Your mental, emotional, and physical health are interrelated. Stress can attract more negative experiences besides illness, such as heavy workload, and unhappy relationships.

10. Watch Pure Forms of Entertainment

Most people are trained to believe the best forms of entertainment are action movies that involve, sex, drugs, and violence. Comedies like 21st Jump Street and Hangover have made blockbusters in today’s society. Movies like The Next Karate Kid and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, are seldom spoke of. Unfortunately, most people, especially in our youth, prefer a quick, easy way of forgetting reality that I call “entertainment for the sake of entertainment.” Gunshots, sexy scenes, and violence, seems to be the recipe for a great movie to many. But to me, true entertainment teaches a lesson about life, such as Forest Gump. They make people feel good, not just for a few hours of laughs and emotional excitement, but long when the movie is over. Furthermore, young kids who secretly do not like and are afraid of cheap forms of entertainment are peer-pressured and brainwashed into thinking such movies are healthy, just because it makes certain people laugh. A spiritually evolved person, however, does not feel amused by seeing a body part shot off.

11. Don’t Chase People who Aren’t Willing to Do Much for You

Many of us spend hours on celebrities or trying to get a person’s attention so they will like us. Often, are efforts go unnoticed and we feel taken for granted. You can be kinder to people than Mother Theresa ever was! If you do not respect yourself, people are not truly going to respect you. Nothing can make us truly happier then being around people who love us unconditionally, whose intentions are pure, who accept us as we are regardless of whether we are fat, skinny, short, tall, have a Ph.D, have no Ph.D, can drive, cannot drive, etc. When you stop chasing the wrong people (the people who do not care for your happiness and well-being) you give a chance for the right people to catch up. And it will not matter if they are blood-related or not, they will feel like family to you.

12. Meditate on your Thoughts

You do not have to sit-crossed legged for hours and repeat a mantra to the point of mental exhaustion to meditate. You can let go, sit back, even open your eyes. You can observe the flicker of a flame, or the waves hitting the shore. The main thing is to get lost in peace. Go in such a state of peace, that negative thoughts that were bothering you earlier tend rise to the surface, such as how embarrassed you were about that stain on your suit at work. This time, they won’t affect you because you are such in a state of peace that you will not care as feelings are more powerful than thoughts. Law of Attraction practitioners often forget that feelings also cause thoughts, it’s not just the other way around. Yes, thoughts can cause feelings, but feelings can cause thoughts as well.
