Himalayan Water and Salt SoleIn the post ‘Is any Salt good for You?‘ I brought the attention to the pros and cons or Salt and what alternative can be used instead of the refined version (i.e. Himalayan Crystal Salt). The information was mostly from the book “Water and Salt” by Dr. Barbara Hendel and Peter Ferreira. 

The comments people made to the post where interesting information and also a few questions.

The Video by Dr. Mercola hopefully will clarify the questions regarding this ‘tasty’ issue.

He explains the history of salt and a lots lots more, i.e. how much salt we need.

A Variety of Uses for the Vision Board Displays

 

Why create and use a Vision Board?

FreedomOur brain is very clever and want to help keeping us safe.

One way of doing this is keeping the ‘old familiar’ neural pathways ‘clean and smooth’ so it is easy to slip into them. The brain produces an acid which cleans any ‘overgrowth’.

So when we want to establish new, better and healthier ways we need all the help and support we can get and lots of repetition of new thoughts and feelings.

Creating a Vision Board can help with that because it uses pictures, words/affirmations.

Looking at the Vision Board on the wall or on our desktop as a wallpaper or the Vision Board Movie on our Computer helps with reinforcing our new habit/vision/intention/goal.

We can use the Windows Media Movie Maker to turn our Vision Board into a Movie and set this to play with the task master.

A Vision Board helps with:

  • Following up on the Intention we set
  • Taking necessary steps to reach our Goals
  • Establishing new Habits
  • Doing those things we decided to do
  • Re-enforcing Affirmations
  • Displaying Information

Even creating a Vision Board is contributing to the reprogramming of your mind since you are focusing on what you want and are reading the words as you type/edit them.

These Displays could be used for:

  • Visualizing Dreams, Visions, Goals
  • Reprogramming Neural Pathways
  • Art work, Portfolios, Photos, Blog Posts
  • Inspirational Quotes/Info

Migraine AuraMost people and even children have experienced headaches or even migraines.

What helps you when your head is aching?

There are lots of methods and which one we choose is probably right for us.

Do you think that what you believe is powerful?

Watch the Video below how a hospital in Beijing uses no medicines.

This post is about how headaches relate to attitudes.

Understanding the cause can be effective with clearing it.

Check list of Affirmations to use at the bottom of the post.

According to Annette Noontil (The Body is the Barometer of the Soul)

The attitudes related to headaches and migraines are as follows:

Headaches

Front of head, pressure

Holding on to old limitations and not seeing good in anything.

Back of head

Pressurizing yourself through impatience that you have not done enough

Migraines

Nervous headaches Back of head

Your communication to yourself that you are the one who needs to be accepted is not happening. Tell yourself you accept yourself no matter what has happened to you.

Nervous headaches front of head

Not communicating with your inner being to know yourself.

Not believing you can stand up for yourself and say what you want.

Letting others tell you what to do and not communicating to them that you dislike being told what to do.

I turned these into

Affirmations:

  • I feel more and more free to tell others that I dislike to be told what to do.
  • I am patient with myself and trust that I have done enough.
  • I let go of limitations and see the good in things.
  • I see myself and everyone as equal.
  • I allow myself to be the love that I am. I am at peace with myself.
  • More and more am I accepting myself no matter what happens to me.
  • More and more am I communicating with my Inner being to know myself.
  • I love the thought of feeling courageous enough to stand up for myself and say what I want.
  • I love the thought of feeling free to tell other that I dislike being told what to do.
  • I love the thought of standing up for myself and say what I want.
  • I am patient with myself and trust that I have done enough.
  • More and more am I letting go of limitations .
  • More and more am I seeing the positive aspects in everyone and everything.
  • More and more am I allowing myself to be the love that I am.
  • I love the thought of being at peace with myself.
  • I accept myself and say what I want.

Thoughts and Affirmations create Feelings.

How do we establish a New, Constructive Positive way of thinking?

New Beginnings

Have you ever experienced feelings which you didn’t like very much.

Something like:

  • Can’t be bothered
  • What’s the point
  • Just want to blob
  • Watch mindless TV shows
  • Want to ‘get out of it’ ‘get….’ all that addictive stuff
  • Want to sleep
  • Want to complain
  • Want to blame someone or something
  • Feel worthless, useless, no good for anything or anyone
  • Feel depressed
  • Feel frustrated with myself

Maybe the frustration was related to that before your felt this way, you felt that you were making headway.

Maybe your emotion where more on the positive end of the scale.

This can be annoying because it can feel so ‘heavy’ and at the time you may feel  that you were doomed to feel this way ‘forever’, that you may as well give up trying, because it doesn’t work.

Hopefully alongside that feeling might have been a little voice that said:

  • It’s only temporary
  • Trust the process
  • You will get through this
  • Reach for better feeling thoughts (old voice: ‘yeah right’)
  • You have felt better and you can get there again
  • It’s ok to distract yourself, if that feels better
  • It’s all ok anyway
  • Sleep on it tomorrow will be better
  • It’s not real;

it’s just an old patterns.

The reason I am writing this is, because I experienced an example of  that ‘this stuff doesn’t seem to work’ powerless feeling. And it is possible to think yourself out of it.

Since I am just like you having a human experience, I assume, actually I am 99.5 % sure that there are lots of other beings like me who go through similar phases in their life and I want to give them

  • Hope
  • Encouragement
  • Reassurance
  • Something to work with
  • Hang in there

When we reach for better feeling thoughts - we can change our lives.

You could write  ‘wouldn’t it be nice if …. ‘  over and over to connect with  better feeling thoughts.

Sure the old patterns(ego) will try and take over at times, but ultimately:

there is only one person that does the thinking in our own head,

and that is

the person wearing that head.

We can recognize old patterns and replace them with new habits - thoughts we consciously think.

Attitude is important for our  Well Being

A few people commented on my last post Solutions for aging that attitude would be the most important.

I agree and I had listed it as the first point for that reason.

What is Attitude?

It is the way we think and our perspective/interpretation in regards to what happens.

What is effected by our attitude?

Here are a few examples:

  • feelings,
  • well being/health
  • relationships
  • work/career/business
  • wealth/abundance
  • whether we age gracefully/or not
  • life in general

Do you have some examples?

So, our Attitude is what we are thinking.

As I mentioned in Positive Thinking we think around 60 000 thoughts a day.

Yes you read right: sixty thousand thought a day.

The good news is:

We don’t have to control or monitor all of those thoughts, not even just some of them.

Our feelings let us know how we are doing.

Feeling good = constructive thoughts

Feeling not so good or even bad = non beneficial thoughts.

You may wonder why I didn’t call them destructive thoughts.

Here is some more good news:

There is a time delay.

So, you have time to find slightly better feeling thoughts before they become “destructive”.

Each slightly better feeling thought will give you access to more

better feeling thoughts therefore it becomes easier to turn those thoughts around.

As a shampoo add with Rachel Hunter (New Zealand actress who was married to Rod Stewart)

said in a shampoo add: “It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen!”

Hang on; correction here:

The slightly better feeling will happen straight away,

but it might be so subtle that you won’t notice it.

If you continue it will become more noticeable and then you may even notice the evidence in your life.

The better is feels the better it gets and

the better it gets and the better it feels, and so on – you get the picture?!

A couple of days ago I was reminded of the importance of dedicating an hour a day to reprogram my mind by John Assaraf in his free 90 min webinar.

I love his book ‘The Answer‘ in which John and his co-author Murray Smith also give guidelines for building your business.

Reprogramming our internal software – undoing that conditioning we have taken on board -takes repetition;

just like the ‘not so beneficial’ words from well meaning caregivers were repeated to us over and over on a daily basis.

Affirmations, reading uplifting  booksvision boards, visualization and meditation are great tools to use to fine tune our attitude.

Vision far north New ZealandVision Board posters with images of dreams and goals  have become a popular tool for people.

The brain ‘thinks’ in pictures, that is why a visual representation of what we imagine is so powerful.

On this post you will find two short videos which introduce an advanced software to produce and play Vision Boards on the Computer.

 

  Areas for which a Vision Board can be used are:

  • Health (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, energy)
  • Abundance (of all things including Money and Time)
  • Business/Job
  • Relationships/Friendships

John Assaraf talks in the movie “The Secret” about how he used vision boards and ended up living in the house he had placed a picture on his board five years before.

Imagine having program which can produce the traditional version with thousands of pictures available to choose from and the ease of technology to place them anywhere on you board in different shapes, with word and back ground.

But wait, there is more. :-)

You can create moving pictures to play while you are working on the computer (your own ‘subliminal’, created by you) or while taking a break and relaxing in front of the screen with the added bonus of music and voice recording.

The Vision Board Studio (VBS) combines all this and more.

Some of the Extras included  in the VBS package  are:

  • Vision Juicing Handbook
  • 6 week challenge
  • Guided Vision meditation
  • Bonuses (E-books {by Bob Proctor and others }, audios. More on these in the next posts)
  • Vision Lounge community

 

To give you an insight what  you can do with the VBS and how you can do it, I have recorded some tutorial videos.

Be sure to have a look at a Vision Board example, see link below.

  • Poster, wallpaper, screen saver
  • ‘Subliminal': Can be played while you are doing other things on the computer
  • Meditation
  • You can record your own affirmations with the voice recorder
  • Affirmation library
  • You can share it, upload it to You Yube, to your blog/website, email it.
  • You can use it to create promotions.

What is YOUR Vision?

Chapter 1 in the Vision Juicing Handbook helps you to:

  • find out what you want,
  • find your vision
  • explore what you are grateful for
  • why it is important to have a clear vision
  • connect with your internal motivator
  • and much, much more.

Announcement:

The Vision Board System Software

will only be available until the 6. Nov. 2013

So get it while you still can!

Beach at low tideIn this busy lifestyle of modern civilisation a lot of people don’t seem to find the time
to take time out for their well being and to restore positivity.
We are always doing the best we can at any given time.
We don’t get up in the morning and say “I am going to be deliberately lazy today and sabotage myself.”

If we are feeling a lack of energy it is usually a sign that we need to take care of ourselves and re-align.
Even if it means doing nothing.

Elizabeth Gilbert, Author of “Eat, Pray and Love” found out about the ‘art of doing nothing’ from Italians.
Apparently they practice that art on a daily basis (i.e. go home for lunch and make love).

An Article about ‘The Art of doing Nothing has some great tips.

We all need time out to recharge our batteries and not just at night when we are sleeping.

How many people allow themselves to have that time out?

There is the ‘too busy’, ‘got to get things done’, etc. Attitude,
which keeps most of us slugging away at it.

Why? Because we are afraid that if we don’t, things will fall apart.
A lot of times it is the people who fall apart, they get sick, have accidents, divorces, heart attacks etc.

Trusting the process is usually not something we learn at school.

Yet, if we would trust the process and listen to our bodies, our energy levels and
take the time out at the first inkling, our even better on a daily basis, we would function so much better.

Even if it is only 10 to 15 minutes.
It is all unfolding perfectly.

Try it now with this very relaxing video taking you into nature(by jankovarik).

I like Wellness Days.
I used to let my kids stay home for Wellness days, rather than have them home sick.
Amy Wong wrote an post on Wellness days

Here is a quote I got in my email:
“Some things you’re not letting happen right now because the timing isn’t perfect for you. Some you’re not letting happen because you are very aware of where you are. But all things, as they are happening, are happening in perfect order. And if you will relax and begin saying, “Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding. And I’m enjoying where I am now, in relationship to where I’m going. Content where I am, and eager for more,” that is the perfect vibrational stance. “Abraham-Hicks

It is all unfolding perfectly.

What is your way of taking time out?
How do you look after your well being?
What do you do to restore your positivity?
