5 Ways To Have Eternal Love

photo-13

I think everybody’s wish is to be loved. To feel complete, unconditional love that does not waiver from outside influences. A love that fills your heart and swells your soul. A complete contentment.

There are two ways to feel this magical love, self-love and faith. There is nothing else that can encompass this type of magical, eternal love. This does not mean that you can not open yourself to love others, quite the contrary. We were born to love one another but having the constant love for yourself and believing in something outside yourself first will help sustain all the other love that comes and goes.

How to have a heart full of love:

1. If you don’t love yourself, how do you expect anyone else to? Let go of the criticism and start seeing yourself as a beautiful creation that is here for a grand purpose. Treat yourself with the love and compassion you would a child or if you were a child again, what advice would you give yourself about your self-worth and love.

2. No pity parties, acknowledge your feelings and let them pass, refrain from sulking in them. Be happy for others, especially lovers, we are all in this journey together and you will have your turn.

3. Faith, believe in something bigger than yourself and commit. Believing in something outside yourself is what religion has mastered and has helped many through turbulent times. Find what works for you. Being able to tune into a feeling of unconditional, abundant love from your God, no matter what else is going on in your life is a tool that has endless possibilities.

4. Trust the process and practice self-love all along the way. There is no self-love when you compare yourself to others. Stop judging yourself and others. Surrender to what is and learn to enjoy the process, especially the rocky parts.

5. Disperse your love. Often when people are in committed relationships they lose some of the constant love for others, not in a cruel way but their lover seems to fill their heart so abundantly that its common to focus all ones love on that individual. If this partner were to ever leave, it could feel as if the love disappeared. Love is matter and whether it be focused on one person or many, it is the same love. It did not disappear. It was always there just focused on one person instead of many. Take that love and disperse it back onto yourself, friends and family and let it envelop you.

* Keep your love tank full with the love you have for yourself first.

6 Ways to Relieve a Migraine Naturally

72a892e50d1c408a45bb50c9a28016a6

There are tons of things that can trigger a migraine. Anything from certain foods, additives, alcohol, dehydration, medications, hormones, sleep deprivation or just thinking too much. The goal is to monitor your own symptoms to see if there is any correlation to too much sugar, certain foods or a new medication for example. Making some small changes in your routine can minimize and eventually ban migraines all together.

It is not normal to have migraines. Migraines are a symptom and way of your body telling you that it does not like something you are doing. Here are some natural tips that could help relieve migraine pain.

1. Toxins in the body are number one cause for migraine headaches. Food additives and preservatives. Eat more fresh less packaged and avoid added chemicals as much as possible. This means things like red food coloring to diet sodas and splenda. These things are poison to your body and a headache or migraine is a symptom of that poison.

2. Avoid sleeping under a window or sharp object, like a beam or chandelier. Feng shui believes that the sharp angles above your head can create migraines. It is also important to have a solid head-board or wall behind your head to support your crown chakra. This too will help with any insomnia that is also correlated with head aches and migraines.

3. Orgasms. One of the oldest ways to relieve a head ache or migraine is through an orgasm. It is simply natures relief. So many woman use the head ache routine to get out of having sex but it may be just what the doctor ordered.

4. Ginger- Ginger tea is a calming and soothing way to digest ginger. Ginger has medicinal properties that can help relieve tension and inflammation. It helps to create more circulation throughout the entire body.

5. Overthinking-  spiritually, headaches represent self criticism and invalidating one self. Migraines represent resisting the flow of life, sexual fears and dislike of being driven. Getting into your own head and critiquing your own self-worth or not trusting the flow of your life can cause tension and constrict blood and oxygen to your brain causing the symptoms of a headache to migraine. Instead try to retrain your thought process with positive/opposite thoughts when a negative thought comes up. Or find a way to transmute that negative trigger through exercise, writing, or painting. Ease your mind and trust in spirit.

6. Tei-fu oil-  Is an herbal oil that was developed in China to invigorate the mind. It also stimulates the respiratory system and could positively enhance your mood. To help ease tension headaches or migraines, place one drop in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together to stimulate the oil. Bring your hands close to your mouth and take several deep breaths, inhaling the essential oils. Avoid contact with the eyes and mouth,wash hands after several breaths.

*Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life.- Joan Lunden  

What Dreams May Come/Overcoming Depression

2645idw

In light of Robin Williams tragic suicide. I am inspired to share my own experiences with depression. I feel it is important to be transparent so that people do not feel alone. I always say that we are all in this together because we truly are. What we put out into the universe effects everyone in total. So if you are having a difficult time in life, remember you are not alone. Others feel with you and for you. That may be where the sang, “holding space” came from. Prayer and sending love and light to those that may need extra support for a while. Being strong when they are weak and vice versa.

Often when people commit suicide we are left pondering about what we could have done to save them. The truth is, nothing, because if you were supposed to save them then it would have been so. No use in living in “what if’s” and beating yourself up about what you could have done. Instead move forward and share your light in the present moment. Sometimes although tragic, people’s lives are meant to be a catalyst to save others. When a suicide is committed on such a grand scale, as in Robin Williams case, mental health is brought to the fore front and in turn possibly saving millions of other people’s lives. Everyone becomes more aware  and compassionate to what others are going through despite outward appearances. It is a reminder that everyone is fighting their own battle. His death is not in vein, as long as we learn, grow, and evolve from it.

My own experience with depression came at a very early age. I often found myself feeling things on a very deep level. Perhaps taking on other people’s emotions, because when I looked at my life, I had nothing to really be sad about. Yet sometimes the depression seemed out of my control and it would spiral into a deep dark place, where I could no longer see the light. I even had times where I wished I would pass. I carried a deep yearning for home I guess, on the other side. I would cry and cry for no logical reason. I went through very harsh experiences very similar to Angelina Jolie and Winona Ryder’s movie, Girl Interrupted. Through my journey with depression, I noticed one common denominator. When I stepped outside of myself, the depression dissipated. Procrastination was my enemy and selfishness was what fed the misery. I studied all different ways to help cure myself but one of the most profound tools was a simple change in perception. A learned trait to think positive. Life will always be harsh. Always throw you arrows but you have the choice on how you want to see and feel things. Nobody can do that for you.

A big turning point for me was when someone that I deeply admired gave me the harshest advice I ever received. He said that depression was just laziness. Having been deeply depressed at the time, I got very defensive and offended, thinking that he didn’t know what it was like and surely had never suffered from depression. But after the initial shock of his comment settled, I let it resonate and I found that it was kind of true, for me. Once I stepped outside of myself, stopped procrastinating, pointing fingers, being a victim, got off my bum and started living life, the depression went away. Laziness may have been a harsh term but it was the wake up call that I needed. Taking my life back and finding the desire to truly live again.

Depression is a serious illness, unlike sadness that is caused from a situation and goes away on it’s own. Depression can cause you to lose hope in everything and abandon everything you once found joy or pleasure in. In this lies the secret….conventional doctors treat the symptoms of depression, which is hopelessness but I believe depression is only cured at the root. This is not easy. In most cases it is done by robotically going through the motions until your brain catches on. You have to find something outside yourself to move you and get you going.

I am not saying that this is true for everyone but this is my story and if it can help just one person then I am grateful. Please seek medical help if you have thoughts of suicide or severe depression.

Mental Health tools that helped me Overcome Depression

-Resist laying in bed and moping around. Make plans, set goals, get out of the house, especially when you don’t feel like it.

-Refrain from stimulants of any kind. Alcohol, sugar, drugs, etc.Instead feed your body healthy nutritious foods to assist in mental health.

-Stay active. Exercise everyday. Studies show that exercising releases endorphins that make you happy. Don’t feel like working out? Go for a walk. My yoga teacher says, if you have a problem, go for a walk and you will come back with an answer.

-Help other people in need. Be a good friend. If you are not a good friend then you will not have any friends. Step outside of your own needs and do for others, in turn you will actually be helping yourself.

-Seek natural remedies like Rescue remedy,Kava Kava or 5 HTP which is an amino acid that may raise levels of serotonin.

-Get your hormones balanced. Women especially can get overly emotional with their moon cycles, birth control, pregnancy, and menopause. Don Quai is known for balancing women’s hormonal fluctuations but my favorite formula is from Dr Shultz called Female formula. Pregnant women excluded.

-Get a blood test to check for Vitamin D deficiencies and anemia, both can be triggers for depression.

Ever Wonder Why You Always See The Number 3!!!

unnamed-3

There are many times in our lives when  numbers seem to pop up everywhere. You had a favorite number as a kid, you saw repetitive numbers during a change or shift in your life, or you had numbers give you signs and direction because of the meaning they represented to you. There is no coincidence. The universe runs on numbers and the spiritual world thrives on it. Each number or pattern of numbers represents different energies or embedded vibrations in one’s life. There may have been a time where you saw 1111 for a period of time. Now those that saw 1111 are now frequently seeing 333 or 33.

Here is why-

* You are on board the train! Congratulations! haha. If you are frequently seeing these numbers then you are inline with the universal shifts that are occurring.

* It is a symbol of trinity or triad for oneself. Mind, body and spirit. Either reminding you to connect the three if you are not or if you are, showing you that you are on track. Three becoming one.

* 333 is a spiritual gateway number. Letting you know that the universe is supporting you in abundance to evolve, grow and flourish.

* In Christianity it represents the holy trinity. Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. The number 3 is also used 467 times in the bible.

* Relatives that have passed,spirits (Ascended masters) and angels use 3’s as a form of communication and confirmation. To let you know they are here to assist in manifesting your life’s purpose.

* Seeing any repetitive numbers is a sign to pay attention. Your subconscious is trying to make you aware of something in your conscious life.

* Tri angle. Three equal sides representing Truth. Look at the truth of the situation. Look to achieve balance on all three sides. Maybe you are too focused too much on one side.

* Seeing singular digits is a more delicate meaning. Seeing two, three or more of the same number intensifies its meaning.

 Our subconscious, the universe, angels, and spirits are all working to make our journey the best it can be. Numbers and what they represent and symbolize in relationship to the universal principles can be one of the best tools to do so.  – Jesse Golden
