PHOEBE BROWN: “Relax Into Your Flow”

Relax and Flow

“Source knows when we are ready for something new, and will gently and lovingly lead us along our path of growth according to our own personal place on our timeline.  We all possess the same capabilities because we are all tapped into the same Source.  We each just embrace new capabilities at different times.”

~Phoebe Brown

 

Love and accept who you are and where you are.  Love and accept your own timeline — no one is better or worse, more or less capable of ascending to greater spiritual heights.  We live in a world of duality, and we humans tend to view thing as polar opposites — good/bad, better/worse, higher/lower…. but that is an illusion of this 3d reality where we exist right now.  We each live in our own flow.  We all flow from the same Source, and at the appropriate time we will flow back to the same Source.

If we resist where we are, if we don’t love, accept and honor where we are, and love and honor our personal timeline — it becomes like a sponge, with a suction holding us back.  Love and accept your own place in spiritual growth — let it go, and you will be set free to move forward.  Letting go seems like the opposite of our human tendency, but is very important, it will help set you free.  We are all exactly where we are supposed to be, at exactly the right time we are supposed to be here.

I will use Algebra as an example.  We can all remember a time when we were totally confused with Algebra and just couldn’t  ‘get it’.  Then maybe the next year, or the year after, we look at it and we think, “Oh. I get it. Why was it so difficult for me before?”  It is the same with our personal spiritual growth, it will happen naturally at the proper time.  Source knows when we are ready for something new, and will gently and lovingly lead us along our path of growth according to our own personal place on our timeline.

We all possess the same capabilities because we are all tapped into the same Source.  We each just embrace new capabilities at different times.  If someone discovers an ability before us doesn’t make them ‘better’, in fact, we should be happy for them — not jealous.  We should celebrate them.  As more people awaken and continue in their own spiritual growth, it promotes the growth of humanity as a whole.  We each grow at different rates, and that is perfectly fine.  We are each special in our own way, and the lessons we have personally learned are of great benefit to the overall growth of humanity.  So don’t diminish yourself or your lessons learned thus far.  For in doing so, aren’t we diminishing Source?  So give yourself a break!  Lighten up!  Love who you are now and where you are now….. the growth will flow naturally from that space.  RELAX INTO YOUR FLOW.

L.J. DEVON: “Meditating For Just A Few Minutes Each Day Reduces Stress While Boosting Feelings Of Happiness”

meditating-at-sunset

We are constantly taking information in through our corporeal senses. Technology and social media are constantly streaming noise, beliefs, news and chatter into our hearts and minds. When we stop to meditate, all the noise dissipates. In this moment, we can now take a deep breath and listen.

In the stillness, in the quiet, everything changes. We are no longer dependent on information from our material world. When we stop, listen and breathe, we can begin to connect with ourselves on a much deeper level.

As we focus our attention inward, into imagination and visualization, relaxation ensues. The heart and the mind are put at ease. As breathing slows, as tension is released, blood pressure can normalize. In this state, our greatest fears and anxieties can be addressed.

Meditation benefits mind, body and spirit

In the January 2014 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers published a comprehensive review on the benefits of meditation. Not only is meditation observed and documented as a way to relieve anxiety, but it can also be used as a means to reduce pain and manage depression. These benefits are all possible because the sympathetic nervous system is engaged and regulated more effectively for important functions such as oxygen intake through deep breathing, a steadier heart rate and lowered blood pressure.

Burke Lennihan, a registered nurse who teaches meditation at the Harvard University Center for Wellness, says the benefits of meditation extend beyond just the physical. “True, it will help you lower your blood pressure, but so much more: it can help your creativity, your intuition, your connection with your inner self,” she says.

Various forms of meditation help people heal in different ways

Many people, not recognizing it, have engaged in forms of meditation throughout their lives to cope with big decisions and life changes. Walking meditation or prayerful meditation are two common examples where one tunes out of the material world and focuses the mind, heart or breath. The benefits of meditation are even more powerful when practiced regularly as a discipline.

Concentration mediation teaches one how to direct and focus the mind to achieve desired results. Mindfulness meditation helps one address the negative thoughts that enter the mind so they can be dealt with in a healthy manner. Heart-centered mediation helps one bring awareness to the powerful energy center in the chest, helping one manage emotions and relationship difficulties. In Tai chi and qigong, mediation is combined with physical exercise to enhance breathing and focus. In transcendental meditation, one repeats a mantra, whether it’s a word, phrase or sound, to quiet thoughts and to achieve greater awareness of oneself and the connection to all living things.

Burke Lennihan says that the most powerful experience is when two or more people gather to meditate. When a teacher is present, a verbal guided visualization can be initiated to stimulate the meditative experience of individuals and the group as a whole. Giving feedback after a group meditation, whether to the group as a whole or to a friend, is a powerful experience as well, as illusions and judgments of one another are shattered.

Lennihan says meditation doesn’t have to be complex. It can as simple as doing deep breathing exercises. Meditation can be a launching pad to connect with oneself, filter out negativity, deprogram from social conditioning, or connect with others on a deeper level.

Lennihan says that it’s great to start with 10 minutes of quiet time each day, and to set aside a safe, quiet place. “You’ll build up a special feeling there, making it easier to get into a meditative state more quickly,” she says. Symbols, photos, candles, herbs, crystals, essential oils and articles of nature are often used to surround a meditation practice to make the experience more personal, centered and meaningful for the individual.

The practice of meditation is an important healing art that can be a useful vehicle for finding inner calm and inner strength in the most stressful situations in life. These self-control techniques can help one manage stress more effectively, slow the aging process and create more positive interactions with others.

JENNIFER CLEVELAND: “What Kind of Energy Are You Attracting?”

What Kind of Energy Are You Attracting?

What kind of energy are you attracting? We are all creating an energy flow from our thoughts constantly whether we are being mindful of it or not. Fear can be a fierce creator of negative energy in our lives if we don’t become willing to witness where we choose it over love. When we are in a state of love it feels natural to offer blessings, be generous with our time and to speak positively. Here are a few questions to ask yourself to make sure you’re making enough room for positive energy flow in your life!

1.) Are you meditating upon waking?

Starting your day off in prayer or meditation allows us to focus on what we are grateful for, set intentions and simply become present. Apply this powerful practice daily for a positive vibe throughout your day!

2.) Do you feel the need to control?

Despite our best efforts to control everything the truth is the Universe is orchestrating the show! Resisting the natural flow of things only causes stress that in response creates negative energy in our life. The sooner you make peace with surrendering the sooner you’ll start to be at peace and allow positive thoughts to flow.

3.) Are you taking enough down time?

With today’s “glorification of busy” mindset it can feel almost impossible to find the balance between moving our body and finding down time! Downtime is a powerful tool to guide us into our hearts, heal and detox our bodies, and gain insight into our ideas and creativity! Make the shifts necessary to schedule a little rest and relaxation.

4.) Do you love and accept yourself just as you are right now?

The way we feel and talk about ourselves is ultimately attracting the energy we will receive from others. Focus on all the qualities you love about yourself by making a list…add to it everyday!!!

How did you do?? What kind of energy are you pulling in? Where can you eliminate stress and allow positive thoughts to circulate?
