Desire, burning desire, is basic to achieving anything beyond the ordinary.
THIS WEEK STARTING ON A NEW SERIES, DESIRE WITHIN AND FINISHING ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. PLUS, CONTINUING ON THE BOOK TEN-MINUTE RELAXATION FOR MIND AND BODY.
Countdown to some cooler weather, Autumn arrives in 20 days.
Welcome to the first Saturday of September and in the United States is Labor Day week-end.
Dan and I wish all a safe and enjoyable one.
As we continue to blog about desires within, to us this is the same as goals, dreams and achieving.
However, it also depends on what your perception is in life!
Within our perception of the reality, we live in, there are three components to look at; our external reality, our internal reality, and the unknown.
Today we will be blogging on Internal Reality.
Within our internal reality, we find our desire.
Within our desire, we find our intuition and purpose.
Our intuition is our guide and is brought about by our desire, and our intuition will lead us to our purpose.
Think of those internal feelings we have, where our gut reaction is trying to tell us something through life lessons.
Since the path to our meaning in life is not clear, you can use your intuition to guide you.
Follow those gut feelings as they are speaking to you, and you may just find something you never knew you needed.
If you were to strip away your external reality and everything influencing you on the outside, it would certainly be easier to tap into your internal reality.
But that’s not how it works!
They work together to push you towards your goals and purpose when you start asking what is the point of life?
SEPTEMBER – 3nd, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about September that’s so significant during this month?
National Hummingbird Day – September 3, 2022
This day is celebrated on the first Saturday in September every year and this year it falls on September 3.
Use this opportunity to educate yourself and others on how to care for, and support these amazing creatures.
While also partaking in a variety of activities focused on them.
Some communities celebrate this day with activities that include educational programs, hummingbird viewings, and field trips.
Hummingbirds share the raising of the chicks and males live a lot shorter because they use so much energy in defending their nests.
They use a lot of energy in flying and need to rest every 15 minutes, so we must make our gardens hummingbird friendly.
The historical evolution of Hummingbirds has not been traced to any verifiable or scientifically researched source.
Their first public sighting was published in a journal by a French explorer on his travels to Brazil.
Their ability to have survived millions of years must have been difficult due to their size and structure.
Hummingbirds, as beautiful and precious as they are, are only found in The Americas, especially in North and South America.
Hummingbirds are those small colorful birds distinguished by their ability to hover mid-air rapidly flapping their wings, which produces the humming sound they are characteristically known for.
They are attracted to flowering plants, especially deep-throated flowers, and feed on the nectar for survival.
Their reliance on nectar has helped the development of new hummingbird species influenced by the changes in the flowers.
The number of species is still growing, but about 360 species of Hummingbirds currently exist.
Even with their aggressive nature, as many as 25 different pieces of Hummingbirds can survive and co-exist in the same place.
The hummingbird’s size makes them susceptible to being preyed upon or caught in dangerous situations that could be man-made or natural.
Some of these threats are pesticides, bad weather, big insects or predators, loss of habitat, and bad feeders, among others.
Even though these creatures have survived a long time without the direct and active intervention or help of man, this is currently changing as more information is being gathered on their vulnerability and threats to their survival.
National Hummingbird Day exists to celebrate these beautiful flying creatures.
It recognizes their importance in pollinating our flowers and identifies threats and situations that are harmful to them. It also encourages safer practices that will ensure their survival.
Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.
YOU ARE A PIECE OF THE PUZZLE OF SOMEONE ELSE’S LIFE. YOUY MAY NEVER KNOW WHERE YOU FIT, BUT OTHERS WILL FILL THE HOLES IN THEIR LIVES WITH PIECES OF YOU.
Today Dan and I will be continuing on the book; ten-minute relaxation, For mind and body by Jennie Harding.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are with you at all times; 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 2; THE SENSORY JOURNEY
SIGHT COLOR IN YOUR ENVIRONMENT-
Today we are blogging on one of the 10-minute eye exercises-
For this exercise you need to light a candle.
Ø Place it on a table in front of you.
Ø And dim any surrounding light.
Ø The gentle warm yellow tones are soothing, with no glare.
Ø Sit comfortably and just focus your attention on the candle flame.
Ø Watch it carefully, notice how it contains many colors; even tinges of blue.
Ø See the glow that actually surrounds the flame itself.
This is a kind of meditation, which quickly calms the mind and helps you to slow down and relax at the end of a long day.
Tomorrow, LOOKING AFTER YOUR EYES-
As I ponder over all that I have learned, I have come to the findings that we all have our own blueprint.
Our bodies are precious and there are many components in taking care of them.
Throughout the blog, Dan and I have related the different ways through body, heart and soul.
It’s all about power of knowledge and learning to take care of yourself, keeping your cells happy.
Our immune system is one of the key factors in keeping healthy.
It’s important to know how it works!
The T lymphocytes are so named because they are special products of the thymus gland.
And it is from the observations of T cells that the condition of the immune system can be assessed, as for instance in cancer or AIDS.
Another indicator of immune potential is the total number of white cells in a cubic millimeter of blood, normal being considered 5000 to 7000, perhaps as high as 10,000.
This higher figure being an indication of a toxic system.
It is normal for numbers to increase with activity, stress or challenge by antigens, but sometimes greatly increased numbers will indicate toxicity tending towards leukemia.
Inflammation and fever are another response of the immune system and may occur locally at an area of infection or as the raised temperature of the entire body.
As all vital functions in the body are brought about by enzyme activity and as enzyme activity is greatly increased with increased temperature, fever which accompanies infection is an indication of good immune response.
Often accompanying infection is swelling and soreness of the lymph glands nearest the seat of infection and this is an indication that the immune system is attempting to contain the infection where it is.
So, you see why your immune system is a big part to keeping healthy!
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
BURNING DESIRE 🔥
Until Sunday, the will to win; the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential;
there are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.
