Today, at the office, suddenly  my boss and I started to chat until the conversation turned to the point of spiritual things. For the first time in the past two years, she opened her heart to me and talked me about her fears, beliefs and hobbies. So she shared to me her next project: a past life regression.

I’ve heard something about it but not as much to look for doing one. She told me she felt herself a bit insecure most of his adult life. Even she’s a married senior lady, she always felt that “her soul mate was somewhere else”. She has a strong faith in serendipities. “Nothing happens for nothing” she says frequently and told me that in her younger years when she worked for an assurance company she met a very humble office boy. No feels in particularly, only that empathy and kindness for this boys even they weren’t so close.

Years later, she was at the hospital to visit to her doctor and she met again that boy after many years and now he was married to one of her most loved friends. 10 years later, when she was attending to her baby shop at the Mall, the pairing entered into the little store and they see each other again. After so many years! Then that boy, now turned into a grown up man, told her “My friend, ¿you know you were a japanese lady in your previous life?” She didn’t had a clue about what he was saying and did not paid to much attention. But the seed was planted in her mind. Then, with the time they developed a seller – client relationship but always with that fond feeling for him and his family.

In a reunion between their families, my boss asked to this man about that comment of her past life and he told her “I don’t know, I just know that you were japanese and you were close to me in a certain way”. That triggered her long time feeling about past lives. She says she felt this man was her brother because being her a woman with so few friends, she feels a bond to him and his wife, like they were part of her family. And she began to read and read books about this matter.

She says that children have a very clear memories about their past life and we just need to ask them and they will answer with clear details about it, because their minds are so fresh but with the time they will forget more and more things of it.

Next Monday will be her first past lives therapy. She say she knows that it will bring so much light into her feelings, thoughts and anxiety felt for so many years. I truly wish her the very best in her quest and really hope this could be another therapy for those who felt haunted by unknown facts of the past.

Facial Reflexology

Last Wednesday I decided to try a new therapy: facial reflexology. I’ve heard good things about this technique and the master who was doing it. So I willingly was there on time for my appointment.

I could discover that the environment has a relax sense. Reiki music, flower scents and the master was a very nice and kind person. He invited me to take my place at the massage table. Always caring, he put a new sheet on it before. He started a light chat with me asking me why I came to the center, what was my concerns and health history. Some times we even talk about daily issues and how to improve my mental health at work. He asked me to close my eyes and the therapy began. While he was giving a soft massage on specific points at my face. Time to time he asked some questions like: “Do you eat chicken frequently?” “How many water do you drink by day?” or giving me some advice like eat tuna or soja instead of red meat and chicken. At the end of the session he told me what I should do to improve my health, where I can buy supplements like soja or teas and how many sessions I will need to resolve my problems

I highly recommend you this therapy. Its a good option for mind / body relax, and improve your health in a natural way. Have a great weekend!

“Hug the Tree” to improve our health

Hug the tree is a movement or posture widely known in some health and relaxation therapies or even social cultures.

Therapists use this method to release stress and relaxation on their patients with mental illnesses, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), concentration levels, reaction times, depression and headaches.

Countless studies have shown that children show significant psychological and physiological effects in terms of their health and well being when they interact with plants. They demonstrate that children function better cognitively and emotionally in green environments and have more creative play in green areas.

A large public health report that investigated the association between green spaces and mental health concluded that “access to nature can significantly contribute to our mental capital and wellbeing”.

In Reiki it is a basic exercise to take conscious of your body and locate by feeling where are located your health problems. It is the first step to healing taking a conscious touch with our body giving chance to the natural attuning.

Even you will not have to make any effort to this technique, it would may result uncomfortable to keep it for a long time. You may start with one minute long and then, taking more time as much as you feel comfortable with the position between 5 – 20 minutes.

In China this pose is know as “Zhan Zhuang Gong” which means “rooting standing posture” and it consists on standing like if we are over a big ball or sphere meanwhile we pretend to “hug” another big ball between our arms. You can keep this posture between 1 to 20 minutes as much as you can, as we said before.

Fist, you need to stand with your feet together and hands extended along the body (starting position)

This illustration will help you to understand the posture:

To finish, get closer your left foot to the right one. put your arms down taking one hand over the other until the point “Dan Tien” (belly button). We must keep this posture until we feel the energy has been discharged and our hands are relaxed. At last, return to the initial posture with the hands along the legs.

You may experience tremors, but don’t worry, this is a symptom of muscular attuning and it may be the energy moving across your nervous system. This just happens at the beginning because your body is not prepared or trained, and this will be disappearing with the time and practice.

Stand in this posture produce a mechanical and static re-education of  your backbone and pelvis. It is very good if you have suffered an accident in your back, scoliosis, etc. People who suffer backaches or lumbar pains will notice improvements in health easily.

Relaxation and Anxiety reduction with EMDR

EMDR is an acronym for ‘Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing’. EMDR is a powerful psychological treatment method that was developed by an American clinical psychologist, Dr Francine Shapiro, in the 1980s.

Since then a wealth of research has been conducted demonstrating its benefits in treating psychological trauma arising from experiences as diverse as war related experiences, childhood sexual and/or physical abuse or neglect, natural disaster, assault, surgical trauma, road traffic accidents and workplace accidents. Since its original development, EMDR is also increasingly used to help individuals with other issues and performance anxiety. EMDR has been found to be of benefit to children as well as adults.

When I person is involved in a distressing event, they may feel overwhelmed and their brain may be unable to process the information like a normal memory. The distressing memory seems to become frozen on a neurological level. When a person recalls the distressing memory, the person can re-experience what they saw, heard, smelt, tasted or felt, and this can be quite intense. Sometimes the memories are so distressing, the person tries to avoid thinking about the distressing event to avoid experiencing the distressing feelings.

Some find that the distressing memories come to mind when something reminds them of the distressing event, or sometimes the memories just seem to just pop into mind. The alternating left-right stimulation of the brain with eye movements, sounds or taps during EMDR, seems to stimulate the frozen or blocked information processing system.

In the process the distressing memories seem to lose their intensity, so that the memories are less distressing and seem more like ‘ordinary’ memories. The effect is believed to be similar to that which occurs naturally during REM sleep (Rapid Eye Movement) when your eyes rapidly move from side to side. EMDR helps reduce the distress of all the different kinds of memories, whether it was what you saw, heard, smelt, tasted, felt or thought.

EMDR is a complex and powerful therapy and always is recommended to attend with a qualified expert in the subject, but if you want to try a little sneak peak you can listen a guided theraphy by Mark Grant here.

 

Mantras.

The word “mantra” is derived from two Sanskrit words. The first is “manas” or “mind,” which provides the “man” syllable. The second syllable is drawn from the Sanskrit word “trai” meaning to “protect” or to “free from.” Therefore, the word mantra in its most literal sense means “to free from the mind.”

It  is considered capable of “creating transformation” (cf. spiritual transformation) and its use and type varies according to the school and philosophy associated with the mantra.  Mantras were originated in the Vedic tradition of India, becoming an essential part of the Hindu tradition and a customary practice within Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism.

In simple words, what is exactly a mantra? A repetition of words, syllables or sounds that lead your mind to a state of calm, meditation and relax. Some mantras has a special meaning. Some others talk about a holy story, some others are for healing and relaxation. There are mantras for any occasion, even to ask for love. Mantras are a very good therapy for relaxation and if you add the plus of faith, they become an ally to ask for holy favors.

If you are interested in listening, knowing and learning mantras, you can easily google them, but here are two of my favorites:

Ad Guray Nameh” sung by Sat Hari Singh & Hari Bhajan Kaur. It means “I bow to the primal Guru (God)” and is used to praise the Lord and seek protection and guide:

Yemaya Assessu” sung by Deva Premal, it is a mantra about Yemaya, Goddess of the River and tells the story when river joins to the ocean. It’s used to ask or celebrate a couple’s love.

Namaste.

Soul Healing with poems. ~ Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.-

Max Ehrmann

Embracing and healing your Inner Child.

Tags

No matter how old you are, many of us have suffered in the past. A hard raising, bullying, lack of love or affection from family, loneliness, insecurity, etc. are some of the reasons. Things that hang you to the past, wounds that need to be healed.

Nowadays, there are a meditation theraphy called “Healing the Inner Child” that is used to heal all these old scratches in your soul and mind and recover the self confidence to forgive and forget the damage and keep going with a better and lighter life.

What is exactly Healing the Inner Child? According to the Wikipedia, “Inner child is a concept used in popular psychology and Analytical psychology to denote the childlike aspect of a person’s psyche, especially when viewed as an independent entity. Frequently, the term is used to address subjective childhood experiences and the remaining effects of one’s childhood. The inner child also refers to all of the emotional memory and experiences stored in the brain from earliest memory. The Twelve-step program recovery movement considers healing the inner child to be one of the essential stages in recovery from addiction, abuse, trauma, or post-traumatic stress disorder”.

But… what is exactly this theraphy and how can we practice it? Is a simple affective meditation to visualizing yourself as a child and show him/her affection, love, comprehension and confidence. This is a very effective therapy to heal childhood traumas. You can do it at any time or place, with a regular basis, when you most need it or whenever you have a moment to talk to yourself.

How can I show love for myself? Is there any way to learn this meditation? Yes. There are guided meditations by teachers or advanced people. This is a little example:

Imagine youself, seated in a calm place, it could be your living room, a forrest, a beach, etc. In front of you, you see a child, a beautiful child. It depends on you how is that child in look or emotional state. With a gentle and warm feeling you embrace him, giving him/her a lovely hug and taking him/her by shoulders you will say to him/her:

Dear child, you are a beautiful and deeply loved child. You were conceived with love and deeply desired since the first minute of your life. You have not to be afraid anymore or feel alone because I am with you now and I love you. Nobody will hurt you because I will protect you from anything. I am here to play with you so you won’t be alone anymore. Come to me, embrace ourselves in a tight hug because you will no longer be suffering anymore.

If you are plenty of time, you might spent some time visualizing playing with your inner child, maybe constructing castles in the sand, playing in the backyard, smiling in the playground. Anything that might build a strong relationship with your inner child and make both of you to feel happy.

Remember always to say to him or her that you will be there anytime he or she needs you. You will be instantly at the reach of his /her hand when it would be necessary and say good bye with a big big hug.

The longer you practice this excercise, you will feel yourself more relaxed, happy, calm, confident and strong to deal with your life.

I deeply encourage you to be in touch with your inner child. I hope you feel better after practice this meditation as I did (I even cried).

Blessings for everyone.
