Desire is possibility seeking expression.
CONTINUING THIS WEEK 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 17 days.
Are we ready for Tuesday?
Look no further!
Monday might get all the attention.
But let’s be honest, Tuesday morning is a grind!
You might have hit the ground running yesterday.
But now you need the same drive and determination to take your Tuesday head on.
Need some motivation?
Look no further!
You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
You can do this.
Let’s get started, 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!
Today it’s, Fine Tuning Our External Reality-
Your external reality will influence every aspect of your internal reality.
If you find that you are depressed or unfulfilled or feeling “empty” in some way, this may be reflecting some lack in your external reality.
Perhaps you don’t have good friends to support you through tough times.
Maybe your education has left you with little direction regarding what you like and don’t like.
Perhaps you’re working at a job that has left you feeling lifeless as it offers you no challenges to overcome.
Or just retired and wondering what to do.
If you want to improve your internal reality and sense of purpose, you’ll need to take a long, hard look at which part of your external reality is throwing things out of balance.
Once you do this, your purpose will likely become much clearer.
Tomorrow, Find Some Gratitude-
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.
WE ARE NEVER MORE FULLY ALIVE, MORE COMPLETELLY OURSELVES, OR MORE DEEPLY ENGROSSED IN ANYTHING, THAN WHEN WE ARE AT PLAY.
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
LOOKING AFTER YOUR EYES-
SIMPLE EYE ACUPRESSURE
Today we are focusing on, SIMPLE EYE ACUPRESSURE.
The eye socket is the bony part of the skull that surrounds the eye.
There are many points in the area that link to meridians.
Lines of energy that pass through the body and all its organs.
Acupressure means applying pressure to those points with the fingers.
When you apply pressure here, it is very important not to stick your fingers into the eye.
Or dig in too deeply in the delicate area underneath.
Keep you fingers in contact with the eye socket.
1. First gently press upward under the bony ridge from the outside of the eyebrow inward, using the pads of your fingers.
The points on either side of the bridge of the nose may be tender.
2. Then, starting back at the outside corner of the eye, press downward gently along the lower bony ridge of the eye socket.
Some of the points you are stimulating, also clear the sinuses.
3. Repeat the upper and lower processes twice more.
Tomorrow, Natural Eye Soothers-
SEPTEMBER – 6th, 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 Read a Book Day – September 6, 2022
This day calls all book lovers to indulge in their favorite hobby, guilt-free.
Bringing new worlds to life, books enlighten us and transport us on exciting adventures.
I recommend Dan's and my book, our passion, our inspiration, our knowledge on other treatments for cancer other then cut, poison or burn, managing a healthy lifestyle;
Books can challenge our perspectives on the human experience in ways unmatched by other media.
In a world deluged by technology, National Read a Book Day encourages us to silence the noise and turn the pages for a while.
While National Read a Book Day is believed to have originated in the US, other details of the day’s history are unclear.
What is clear, though, is Americans’ love for books!
And, for many, this is a welcomed day because 81% of us don’t feel we spend as much time reading as we would like.
So, today is the perfect opportunity to set aside a little time to catch us up on the read to do list.
The popularity of book club’s; points to our ongoing love for books.
They date back to the 1600s with women’s Bible studies.
But, in the last few decades, reading has taken on a much more social element influenced; in large part, by Oprah Winfrey’s Book Club.
Starting in 1996, Oprah’s Book Club recommended 70 books contributing to over $55 million in sales and has been credited with inspiring millions of people to read books.
Over 74% of Americans have read at least one book in the last 12 months.
Sure, the busyness of life definitely gets in the way of our reading pursuits with many other activities competing for our time.
Luckily, electronic platforms have made it easier for us to read on the go.
Almost 20% of books consumed are now via electronic platforms.
Whatever format you prefer, grab or download the book on the top of your stack and dive in!
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!
Dan and I learned that vitamins and minerals are essential to our immune system.
So, all vitamins and minerals are important for proper immune function.
Particularly vitamin C and the generally inadequate amount of this vitamin in the Western diet, together with excessive quantities of fat, cholesterol and protein.
These are two of the main reasons for the mediocre standard of immunocompetence displayed by most people.
A recent report in the Cecil Textbook of Medicine stated that sixty per cent of all human illness occurs in the upper respiratory tract in the form of colds, influenza and secondary bacterial infections.
The survey showed an average of 5.6 infections per adult per year.
Whereas a fit and healthy person is resistant to all infections and in ordinary circumstances suffers no respiratory problems at all year in year out.
The 5.6 average shows that the average standard of immunocompetence is disturbingly poor.
However, by comparison; our general standard of immunocompetence is superior compared with that of some other countries.
But this proves only that the people in those countries are sicker than we are.
In some countries where the majority of people are underfed and malnourished all the time, epidemics occur frequently.
All the while history reveals that epidemics were often consequential in the wake of wars or natural disasters when shortage of fresh food resulted in widespread malnutrition.
Such epidemics occur not because germs and viruses automatically increase in numbers during wars and floods.
They occur because malnutrition weakens the people and reduces their powers of resistance.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Wednesday, winning isn’t everything,
but wanting to win is.
