A true passion that burns within your soul is one that can never be put out.
SPECIAL EDITION – HAPPY VALESTINE’S DAY
First, I would like to take a moment and wish my granddaughter, Violet a happy first Birthday.
As we continue with the series about passion, Dan and I would like to wish all of you a Happy Valentine's Day.
A few words said the right way can reignite passion.
They can remind us of something that we used to love doing but got lost on the way.
The little time we often have for ourselves made us put everything else above our passions.
Today reminds me of raising our daughter, for that was my first most passion.
Seeing her grow and watching her was the sunshine of my life.
Now, seeing my grandkids grow; helps me to recall the first passion, our daughter.
Dan and I posted some ways which we were practicing mindfulness, eating clean, moving your body, getting out into nature, laughing, detoxing from technology, practicing acts of kindness, and listening to relaxing music, connecting with a friend, sleeping in, reading a good book, self-reflection exercises, and decluttering.
Here is another physical aspect that directly impacts your spiritual life.
There are many benefits to drinking water, including energizing our muscles, keeping our skin plump, helping in digestion, and it also makes your kidneys work easier.
Dehydration puts us in a bad mood, as well.
Irritability and frustration, of course, take away from our experiences of gratitude, appreciation, and connection, which, as we know, add to our spiritual fulfillment.
Experts say to aim for half your weight (in pounds) in ounces of water.
In other words, for a person weighing 150 pounds, he or she would drink 75 ounces of water a day.
Then, of course, add more if you’re out in hot weather or if you exercise a lot.
As Dan and I have been sharing and continuing the book from last week, Ten-Minute Relaxation, For Mind and Body by Jennie Harding, until the end.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are always with you; your senses.
This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.
Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!
Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy, meditation.
By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.
CHAPTER 3; INTUITION/SIX SENSE
SENSORY CREATIVITY/ CREATIVE SMELL-
Creating amazing aromas is the art of the perfumer.
Top fragrances can contain hundreds of aromatic ingredients, all balanced to allow the scent to develop on warm skin and react with an individual’s particular chemistry.
Learning the art of perfumery takes many years, and top perfumers, called noses are paid handsomely to their skills.
Yet the fragrance of a rose, in all its delicate cool beauty with sweet soft undertones; cannot be totally reproduced by a perfumer and rose perfumes will always be copies of something nature has perfected.
As Dan and I start a new year; we will be posting daily 365 morning meditations for joyful days all year long.
The book is SUNRISE GRATITUDE by Emily Silva.
WHEN SOMETHING FEELS IMPOSSIBLE, it may take some time to find your way.
We are prone to react in frustration when things seem difficult.
But from this perspective, the natural response is to give up.
Giving up does not get you closer to your goal and will leave you even more frustrated.
Instead, take a breath and revisit the issue once you have cleared your head, so you can have a renewed outlook.
Take action from this place of calm and not from a place of reaction.
PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
If you would like to follow with us; hash tag words #walk, #meditation #Qigong on the right of the main blog page.
Until Wednesday, my mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive;
and to do so with some passion, compassion, humor, and some style.
