Letting Go, BEing in the Flow – The Law of Disattachment

“Always without desire we must be found,
If its deep mystery we would sound;
But if desire always within us be,
Its outer fringe is all that we shall see.”

Lao-Tzu Tao Te Ching (J. Legge, translator) 1891

Ancient martial arts masters taught the Law of Disattachment. When you hold desire, you restrict the flow of energy. It is as if you are trying to force energy to exhibit or appear a certain way. We often use force to create a “desired” outcome, right? To truly BE in the flow of universal energy is to let go of all desire because desire impedes the flow of universal energy. We need to learn to exist simply in a state of BEing that allows universal energy to move in us and through us and back out to the greater universal field. Then all things move in harmony and synchronicity.

Have you ever thought of somebody only to have them call you the next minute? That is a synchronicity. How did it happen. In that moment, you were both in a state of allowing or simply BEing.

Disattachment is a fundamental teaching of Buddha. He recognized that only when we let go of our inner desires and seek outwardly that which is good for all, thereby including that which is also in our own better interests because we individually are part of the greater ALL, then in that state do we truly reflect enlightment – we are all ONE.

When you create an attachment to something mentally and emotionally, it is like creating a string to a thing that is now attached to you and you have to carry it with you until you can cut the string and let it go. Rather, practice being an observer of all things including your own thoughts and emotions – don’t attach to them, just let them come, observe them and let them leave. You have less strings to cut and less baggage to carry.

Strings can also act like tourniquets on your energy field, cutting off the flow of energy in your body. You might have heard of these as stuck emotions. This is often seen in the field of massage therapy. A massage therapist working on a person might release one of these stuck emotions and for no reason the person will start to cry or laugh.

To understand the deep mysteries, we must first start practicing how to release and let go and get in the flow….BEcome ONE with the universe – that includes everybody and everything (animate and inanimate) around you.

Letting Go

What is letting go? What does it mean to let go? What does letting go have to do with stress anyway?

Letting go is as simple as it sounds, but not as easy as it sounds. If you’re struggling to Let Go, you are hanging on.

Letting go is disconnecting from your thoughts and emotions. Most people relate their thoughts and feelings as to who they are. But you are not your thoughts and emotions. Your thoughts and emotions are expressions of the state of BEing you currently find yourself in. Your State of BEing can be controlled and changed at WILL. Will Power is the greatest Power in the Universe. As you WILL to change your thoughts and emotions and Choose to change your thoughts and emotions, you begin the process of Letting Go.

Holding onto thoughts and emotions creates tension in the body. The tension slowly builds over time creating chronic cellular stress. Tension restricts the flow of universal energy creating energy blockages. Letting Go of stored thoughts and emotions, old baggage, and becoming Present with the Moment, releases tension, eases constriction, creates fluidity in the body and allows energy to begin to flow more freely.

A Real Universal Health Plan

“If you require health, a realization of the fact that the “I” in you is spiritual (energy) and that all spirit (energy) is one; that wherever a part is; the whole must be, will bring about a condition of health, because every cell in the body must manifest the truth as you see it. If you see perfection and wholeness, they (the cells) must manifest perfection and wholeness in your life. The affirmation, “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy,” will bring about harmonious conditions.” [Module 9 How to Master Abundance and Prosperity Ed. by Carlson Haanel Wattles Mentz, JD, MBA, PHD]

Another affirmation that I use is, “I am whole as source from which I flow.”

The ancient Chinese believed themselves part of an unbroken whole – the Tao – “a singular continuum within and without.” (Between Heaven and Earth – A Guide to Chinese Medicine p.5)

A continuum of energy. Electricity at the speed of light yields the same percentage of magnetism as magnetism yields the same percentage of electricity at the speed of light – yin yang – the “force”. Energy – the unified field – every thing, including thoughts, are all energy – are all ONE.

The idea that thoughts can affect one’s health and overall well-being is foreign to many. But just as your body is energy, your thoughts are energy, your mind is from source energy, it is possible. Wellness lies within you and you have the ability to access it. It lies within you like an artesian well just waiting for you to tap into it. The more you access it, the more abundant your well-being. You can release your own energy blocks and get your energy (chi – qi) flowing and reconnecting with universal energy using simple to learn techniques.

CNN did an article on Stress. Did you know that 8 out of 10 people are suffering, yes suffering, from the effects of stress. Alleviating stress is possible. Accessing wellness is a reality.

Stress – The Silent Enemy

At least 75% of the immune system originates from the gastrointestinal system (the gut). Did you know that brain neurotransmitters also originate in the gut? This is more evidence that the “mind” really is a spiritual connection to our creative center ~ the dan tian ~ and that the brain is an elaborate switching station that controls the body. Read more in the Mind Monkeys Series. Stress suppresses the body’s immune system resulting in a wide array of systemic symptoms.

Let’s take a look at the definition of stress from the American Heritage Dictionary

 

3e; 5c; 6a:  A mentally or emotionally disruptive or upsetting condition occurring in response to adverse external influences and capable of affecting physical health, usually characterized by increased heart rate, a rise in blood pressure, muscular tension, irritability, and depression.

 

5 Physics a:  An applied force or system of forces that tends to strain or deform a body.

 

The word “stress” is derived from the Middle English stresse meaning hardship, partly from destresse and partly from the Old French estrece meaning narrowness or oppression.

 

The nature of the word is indicative of restriction, narrowing, tightening and constriction – all things that happen within the body during times of emotional and physical stress.  When you experience emotional stress, you will often feel a tightening or constricting in the throat and/or chest. Physical stress causes a constriction of blood vessels contributing to elevated blood pressure.

 

How often do we use words without really contemplating the fullness of their meaning?

 

Here is a list of some of the manifestations of STRESS:

    Insomnia                            Restlessness                               Anxiety

Moodiness                          Depression                                Hypertension

Tension headaches             Migraines                                   Skin problems

Hair loss                            Stomach /digestive problems      Colon irritability

Obesity                             Neck pain                                  Shoulder pain

Back pain                          Muscle and Joint aches                Diabetes

Thyroid imbalance             Acid-alkaline imbalance               Cancer

 

If you are experiencing or have experienced any of these symptoms, you most likely are coping with situational stress and probably even chronic stress at some level. Working with a Wellness Coach to learn Relaxation Techniques and how to add them your lifestyle will deliver lasting effects with results that can be seen in as little as two weeks. 

If you have ever taken an antibiotic in your lifetime, chances are you have an overgrowth of systemic yeast (Candida). Antibiotics destroy the probiotics in your body along with the harmful bacteria. If you have never restored your body’s good bacteria, now is a good time to start. You will see improvement in as little as 1 – 2 weeks. An overgrowth of systemic yeast will manifest in your body in many of the symptoms listed above. Stress exacerbates yeast overgrowth.

 

You have probably heard since the 1980s that Heart Disease is a “silent killer,” and more recently that Heart Disease is the #1 cause of death among women. The primary instigator behind hypertension and heart disease is stress – whether it is situational stress or chronic stress – the long-term effects if left unabated in the body result in deterioration of health and lead to a cornucopia of symptoms. Even if you have inherited tendencies towards developing hypertension and heart disease, there are steps you can take to prevent the development of hypertension or heart disease as well as natural alternatives to the care of hypertension and heart disease if you are already coping with these health issues.

 

Stress creates constriction, tension in the body, and can even constrict thinking. A tense mind focuses in on minute details and often overlooks the bigger picture. It is easy to get caught in a downward spiral of close introspective thinking. Calmess leads to clarity of thinking. With clarity of thinking, you will find solutions more quickly and easily. Relaxation techniques will show you how to let go of the stress and BE in a calm productive state in spite of the situations you find yourself in.

 

Stress not only affects the physical and emotional body, it affects the energy body as well. The constriction caused in the body by stress leads to secondary constriction of energy flow or Qi (chi). Energy blocks often accompany many of the stress symptoms listed above. It is not only important to address the cause of the stress to eliminate future stress but it is also important to release the energy constriction or Qi block so that energy can freely flow through the body once again leading to and promoting natural healing.

Anxiety and Energy Blocks

Does anxiety create blocks in your vital life force?

Energy flows naturally. Think about the physical reactions you feel in your body when you have anxiety. Your throat might get constricted. You might feel knots in your stomach. You might even be overcome by the stronger emotion of fear.

All of these emotions are low frequency emotions, and because they cause constriction, they block the flow of energy.

It is possible to get past these emotions and move into higher frequency emotions.

When you are experiencing anxiety, worry or fear, helplessness or hopelessness, try to keep in mind as you are experiencing this that it will pass. If you focus on moving through it to a higher frequency emotion, that focus, intention, will guide you through. It is important to stay focused on it or the negative emotion can drag you down further.

Women especially experience these types of cyclical emotions around their monthly cycle. Your body is signaling you that your hormones are out of balance, another sign of energy blocks.

When you are experiencing these negative emotions, it also helpful to find the brightest, most positive thoughts you can think of, the things that inspire you or the things that you dream and hope of. All of these cause your focus level to raise to inspiration and aspiration, higher frequencies that can pull you up faster.

Nature walks, outdoor places that comfort you, warm baths and scented candles (lavender for relaxing, lemon for invigorating, ginger for calming, sandalwood for peace and inspiration) are other things you can do to alleviate the anxiety and move into a calmer, more clear state of being.

Clearing energy blocks through energy healing, QiGong, EFT, and other holistic modalities will bring harmony to your body. Maintaining energy flow will help you to stay in a harmonized state and help your body to heal naturally.

I Will BE That I Will TO BE

Many people exist in a state of discontent. They aren’t happy with their job, the things they have, the car they drive, the house they live in, maybe even their spouse.

 

How many of you think that once you attract all the things you “think” you want, you will be happy?

 

How many of you are happy NOW? How many of you are content with your life just the way it is?

 

Do you find yourself wishing you had more than you do? You see someone with something that you’d like to have and wish you had it? When you find yourself in this state, you may actually be experiencing envy. Envy is a negative emotion. Maybe you don’t think you have envy. But when you see someone driving a new car that you’d like to have, and you say, “I wish that were me driving that car right now,” or “I really want to be driving that car right now,” you have envy. Maybe, it is the latest electronic game or a new HD TV and you really want to have it now.

 

Let’s look at the definition of envy to be really clear. Dictionary.com says that Envy is a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another’s advantages, success, possessions, etc.

 

So, you see, if you are not careful, you may actually find yourself being envious.

 

Now, let’s say, you see someone driving a car you would really like to have and instead you say, “That person absolutely deserves to have that car. I’m looking forward to when I will have one too and will be grateful to receive it.”

 

In this instance, you are acknowledging that it is okay for the other person to have something you would like to have. You also acknowledge that you are content and have gratitude for what you will receive, and that you are now ready to receive it.

 

Why bring up this topic anyway? Because this is part of the Letting Go process. When you are in a state of always wanting more, you are not content. You are creating a maelstrom of emotional stress within your body as well. When you can exist in a state of contentment, you will be in a position where you will attract the things you desire. More correctly, you become “attract-ive” to those things.

 

When you have envy, you have feelings of lack. Lack does not exist in the Universe. There is only abundance. When you can Let Go of this “lack” way of thinking and feeling, all potential is within your reach. You become “attract-ive” to all that IS. Because you are not perceiving lack, the full potential of the Universe begins to become visible. You cannot realize the full potential of the Universe in an instant or you would become overwhelmed.

 

Let’s go back to Prayer for a moment. When You Ask for something in FAITH, you do so with a KNOWING that it will come to pass. If you don’t KNOW that it WILL BE, often times that prayer will go unanswered. It goes unanswered because You didn’t bring it into BEING. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Rom 11:1) Evidence is proof. Substance is real and tangible. Quantum physics has shown that when a person thinks of matter, matter – visible atoms – will appear in what is otherwise “dark space.” You can bring into BEING whatever you desire. But remember, things do not make one happy or content. Happiness and contentment are States of BEING. It comes from Within You not from Outside of You. When you are content, everything is possible.

 

“The attitude of the praying mind is one of intense concentration. The feelings which are the motive power of all men, have been wrought up to a state of tension. The nerve-currents are all being carried up to the brain and there converted into thought-power. With each exertion, whether mental or emotional, there is an outgoing current of magnetism. There sets up a stress in the ether [universal energy]. The entire organism is subject to Self-Magnetization. The psychic atmosphere around the praying soul is throbbing with his thought-forces. The aura – the photosphere round each form is bathed in living light, sending forth waves of golden yellow color and scintillating with unimaginable splendor. The finer forces of the super-physical planes have been attracted to you. Your mind is opened to the influx of Divine Help. Receive it. It is yours for the asking.”

A.P. Mukerji, Yoga Lessons for Developing Spiritual Consciousness

Chap 15, p 126

 

“Now understand, once for ever, prayer is willing. It leads to the accomplishment of your aims on the spot…In this sphere Will is the basal power of influence. It draws all your finer forces into a focus towards the thing willed for. The result is that the thing is done…The Great Law operates always and everywhere…By prayer you come into rapport with the spiritually conscious side of yourself. You are a needle pointing to the magnet –- the more faith…you put into the task, the sooner you will adjust your forces, the quicker shall be the response; the more lasting and powerful the reaction. Here, then, you have all the switches and levers of energy and inspiration. Therefore pray ever and believe that your prayer shall ripen to fruition. Build up faith in the unseen and the invisible. The self in you is your guide, philosopher and friend. It is the  Rock of the Ages – the Eternal among the Transient – the Source of All-Power, Wisdom and Activity. Lean on it for it is Strength – Invincible Strength.”

A.P. Mukerji, Yoga Lessons for Developing Spiritual Consciousness

Chap 15, pp 128-129

 

“I have said, you are gods; and all of you are children of the most High (the Eternal, Source, Universe).” (Ps. 82:6)

 

“For in him, we live, and move, and have our being…For we are also his offspring.” (Acts 17:28). That is an incredible statement. You ARE because the Eternal (Source, God, Universe) IS. Without Him nothing would exist. Because He is Omnipresent, He is all and is IN all. Then He must be IN you and YOU IN HIM.

 

“We have assumed the existence of God, of an intelligent, creative Mind-power that is able to cause to be, and…to bring into existence mind-centers to be the expression of its own nature or, in other words, mind-centers through which this Universal Mind expresses itself.”

Hiram Butler, Science and Revelation, pp 85-86

 

The most powerful expression in the Universe is YHVH – I AM THAT I AM or I WILL BE THAT I WILL TO BE. (The literal rendering of this expression is the future tense, rather than the present.)

 

“But when we take the meaning of the word “Yahveh” as “I will be what I will to be,” it brings to us a potentiality, a power, all unknown to the world, even at the present time; for the name carries with it the thought that he who spoke the word and caused the world to form and to produce itself by the potency of that Infinite Mind, did so by the power of his will, and when we as creatures of earth muse much upon the signification of that name, the “I will,” and the second part of it, “to be what I will to be,” or “as I will to be,” we get a realization of that unlimited power, and a certainty that there is no power in the world, nay, in the universe, but the power of the will.

Since it is accepted by the Christian world that man is the offspring of the Almighty, it follows that man, being made in the image of God, has attributes similar to those of his Creator, his Father. When man’s will has been surrendered, yea, rather has been united to the Divine Will, then man and God become one, for the mind of man is nothing; it has no power of action without the will.

Man always does that which he wills to do, although sometimes there are found in the man two wills active at the same time—the will of the flesh, or the will arising from the impulses, desires, and passions, and a will that arises from the conclusions of the reasoning faculties. But whatever will controls the person, that the person is for the time being; for the will decides all that a person is.”

Hiram Butler, Science and Revelation pp 90 – 91

 

Now, You see through a mirror darkly. It is not clear what you will be…or… what you are. You were created in the Image and Likeness of the Eternal. Your FULL POTENTIAL is yet to be realized. (ICor 13:12)

 

Realization of Full Potential

 

What gifts were you created with that will bring benefit to the rest of humanity? We were all created with gifts – “talents.” Some have more “talents” than others. But we have all been given something.

 

If you are not sure what your “talents” are, think back to when you were a child, what were you most naturally drawn to or what was it you really loved to do? Or maybe at this time in your life, you are drawn to doing something, you see a need in the world and you have a desire to contribute.

 

It is expected that we will DO something with that “talent” that will help others. When we do this, the purpose of all that is can reach its full expression; like the gears in a giant machine, if one isn’t working, the machine grinds to a halt. Or like the human body, when something doesn’t work correctly, the rest of the body has to bear the burden and will eventually cease to work. The body is a physical expression of your spirit. The body is a tool that the spirit uses in the “physical” world to express itself, its wishes and desires and creativity.

 

When you do not Respect your body, you are not respecting this tool that was given to you (the spirit) to make manifest what you desire. If you destroy, cause to breakdown, the tool that was given to you to manifest, it cannot manifest. This is why life can seem like a struggle, as if you are trying to force things into being what you want, rather than accepting what they are. Some people walk around in a constant state of anger, bitterness and resentment. They constantly ask, “Why did my life have to be like this?” “Why was I born into a family that…” “If only this could happen, my life would be different.”

 

“The mind which follows the rambling senses makes the Soul as helpless as the boat which the wind leads astray upon the waters.”
Bhagavad-Gita

 

Why? Why should any of those things matter? Does your family – other people outside of you – really make you who you are? Or do YOU make YOU WHO YOU ARE?

 

It really all starts in the mind. When we are small children, what we learn comes from outside of us. As we grow, we reach a point where we should begin asking ourselves – why do I believe what I believe? Do I believe it because someone said I should? Have I proven it to be so for myself? What is the Truth? If you Seek the TRUTH – the Truth will set you FREE.

 

When you are full of negativity, you are full of negative energy. You block the flow of your energy, your vital life force. It is dammed up inside of you. Your mental attitude creates constant emotional stress, triggering a constant cascade of chemical reactions that manifest as physical ailment – a state of being not at ease. This is why it is so CRITICAL that you learn to LET GO of negative emotions; exist in a state of being that is at equilibrium. It also vital that you learn how to release stored stress from your body, so your body can heal itself. When you do this, You are Releasing your energy, your vital life force; you are allowing it to flow. It can flow back out to the Universe and return to you like the ebb and flow of the tide of the ocean. When you remain connected to Source, your Attention is on your greater purpose. When you put your Attention on your Intention, it will become Manifest.

 

Happiness does not come from outside of you. It comes from within you. Happiness is a state of BEing. You are a human BEing. The full expression of who you are can be experienced when you Give of Yourself to Others. The eternal Law of Reciprocity will bring back to you more than what you Give. If you only ever take (seek things to make you happy), the Law of Reciprocity cannot work because there is flow in only one direction. Circulation is eternal. Flow is not stagnant and never goes in just one direction; it flows in a complete circuit, ever being.

 

If there is something you want in your life, practice giving it to others. It can only come back to you in an even greater expression of its fullness. The most common example of this is Love. If you want love, show others love. Most people do not understand what love really is. The world has confused it with many other emotions masquerading as love. Love is the outward expression of peace and joy and acceptance.

 

If you want others to respect you, show others respect. If you want others to listen to you, listen to others. Listening is not just hearing the words, it is coming to an understanding of what the other person is feeling or trying to express through words. If you want to be understood, try to understand others.

 

“Take the trouble to stop and think of the other person’s
feelings, his viewpoints, his desires and needs. Think more
of what the other fellow wants, and how he must feel”
— Maxwell Maltz

 

Finally, life is a journey. It is a journey that begins when you are born. There are seven stages of spiritual development – newborn, infant, child, teen, adult, middle-age and elder; the eighth stage is spirit. The end of the journey is the Return to the form from which you were created. Seek your full potential with your whole heart. Seek Truth. You will not be disappointed in your life’s journey.

The Stress – Qi Connection Revealed At Last…

Stressful situations occur every day and happen to everyone. It is your ability to cope with these situations that determines what, if any, long-term effects stress will have on you.

 

When I talk about eliminating stress, I am referring to the stored stress that remains within your body. You could never eliminate stressful situations from happening day to day, but you can learn how to release the stress stored in your body and reduce and eliminate the effects of stress. You can also learn techniques to better manage stressful events as they occur to minimize the effects of stress in your body.

 

What is stress?

 

Stress can be defined as an experience or condition that causes physical, emotional and/or mental disruption. Stress is usually characterized by increased heart rate, a rise in blood pressure, increased muscle tension, and irritability.

 

How does stress affect the body?

 

Typically described as the “fight or flight response,” the sudden release of adrenalin and other hormones into the blood stream triggers a systemic cascade of events. Your pulse speeds up, your blood pressure rises, stomach acid production is increased and fat metabolism is increased.

 

Hormones called catecholamines (dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine) are released into the blood stream causing the increase in heart rate and blood pressure. These hormones also mobilize stored fat from cells and dump it into the blood stream. This increases the risk for stroke or heart attack.

 

These hormones also cause a rise in blood sugar leading to an increased risk of diabetes.

 

Circulation is diverted to the brain and extremities for heightened awareness and muscle response to the perceived danger at hand. This slows the digestive process and the elimination of waste while at the same time increasing production of stomach acid leading to increased risk for irritable bowel syndrome and possible ulceration. Peptic ulcers may occur with the presence of a specific bacteria.

 

The rapid release of cortisol suppresses the body’s immune system weakening its resistance. Extended periods spent in stressful life situations can leave you vulnerable to illness and disease.

 

In a state of “fight or flight,” typically the body would be involved in a period of intense physical activity which would utilize these hormones and then expel them from the body. This does not regularly occur in today’s urban society which does not promote a physical lifestyle.

 

What are the long-term effects of stress on the body?

 

Without consistent regular release from the body, these “stress” hormones remain at elevated levels in the body leading to feelings of anxiety, jitteriness, increased tension, irritability, inability to concentrate, and feelings of inability to cope with day-to-day situations.

 

The consequence of chronically elevated stress hormones is destructive to your health. Over time the following effects may become manifest in the body: impaired thyroid function, increased insulin resistance and impaired pancreatic function, decreased sex drive and function, increased hypertension, loss of bone mineralization, increased fatty deposits in the abdominal area.

 

This means that you are at direct increased risk for thyroid problems. Some common symptoms of thyroid disease (either hyper- or hypo-) are extreme weight gain or extreme weight loss, depression, decreased overall energy, aches and pains in muscles and joints, hair can become coarse, dry and brittle, and fall out easily. Skin can become thick and scaly, or fragile and thin. You could have chronic constipation or chronic diarrhea. You may feel tired all the time having no energy. You may have insomnia, anxiety, or depression.

 

Increased hypertension and risk for heart disease can lead to heart attack, irregular heart beat, stroke. Some symptoms of various types of heart disease are: shortness of breath, weakness, dizziness, nausea, sweating, pain or heaviness in the chest, loss of energy and feeling very tired all the time.

 

Increased insulin resistance, decreased pancreatic function and abdominal obesity lead to the increased risk of diabetes with its many symptoms that include nerve damage, kidney failure, heart attacks and strokes, poor circulation, skin degradation and ulceration, and blindness.

 

Decreased bone mineralization leads to increased risk of bone fractures and bone shattering, impairing your overall daily lifestyle.

 

In general, you may also experience increased head aches, migraines, neck and/or shoulder pain, stomach pain, digestive problems, insomnia, skin problems, joint pain, muscle pain, burning sensations, and even cancer.

 

These are just some of the many ways that elevated levels of stress hormones remaining in your body for prolonged periods of time can be destructive and debilitating to your health.

 

Stress in the long run also speeds up the “aging” process by speeding up cell decay and death.

 

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or problems, you have stored stress in your body that is crying out to be released.

 

(If you have an inherited disease, release of stress can help in the management and control of symptoms.)

 

What about good stress?

 

Good stress, often called “eustress” can have both positive effects and negative effects on the body. Eustress can be helpful in relieving the negative effects of stress. Good stress can come in many forms. It can be an activity you like such as hiking, biking, exertive walking, swimming, tennis, golf, soccer. Along with this type of physical activity other chemicals are released into the body and can remain stored as stress too. This would be good stress leading to bad stress in the long term.

 

Eustress can be associated with “over” feelings and emotions such as “overjoyed,” “over-exhilarated,” “over-eager,” “over-emotional,” “over-exuberant,” and “over-sensitive.”

 

When your body is in this state of “over” stimulation, it is the polar opposite of the effects of negative stress. Emotions are vibrational. “Over” emotions emit super high vibrational frequencies. Stress emotions or low energy emotions such as anxiety, sadness, depression, and lack of joy emit super low vibrational frequencies.

 

If you are a follower of The Law of Attraction, you have probably heard that you will attract like vibrations. Your health can impact your ability to make The Law of Attraction work for you. You might be struggling with the concept of raising your vibrational energy. You can start by clearing your body of stored stress. As you release stored stress, you will begin to feel lighter, happier, more content, better able to cope, more optimistic.

 

Some emotions associated with negative stress and low energy are: doubt, fear, anxiety, resentment, anger, guilt and depression.  Some emotions associated with a state of equilibrium of are: peace, joy, happiness, contentment, love and hope.

 

Negative stress causes cellular breakdown, decay and death. Eustress in excess is like a nuclear meltdown in the body.

 

Here is an example of how an excess of eustress can be harmful. You are in a state of being very excited. The energy heats up the heart first. The excess energy then travels to the brain. Once this excess energy is in the brain, it is not easily released because the channel back to the torso is very narrow. The excess energy has nowhere to go and like an overfilled balloon and energy explosion occurs resulting in stroke.

 

Ancient Buddhist and Chinese philosophies teach that moderation is best in all things, even in our emotions and in our ability to heal ourselves.

 

“In governing the people and in worshipping heaven nothing surpasses moderation. To value moderation, one must form the habit early. Its early acquisition will result in storing and accumulating vitality. By storing and accumulating vitality nothing is impossible.

If nothing is impossible then one is ignorant of his limits. If one does not know his limitations, one may possess the state. He who possesses moderation is thereby lasting and enduring. It is like having deep roots and a strong stem. This is of long life and enduring insight the Tao (way).”

Lao Tzu’s Tao and Wu Wei: Tao Te Ching 59 To Keep Tao

 

What can be done to de-stress the body?

 

Some activities that can be done to release stored stress from the body are: body massage, meditation, and yoga. Slow, gentle walking along with visualization and deep breathing will also release stored negative stress from the body. Listening to calming music or “environmental” music along with visualization will release stored stress from the body.

 

Visualization along with other de-stressing activities is very powerful at releasing stress. It restores the body to a state of equilibrium from which the body can begin its own natural restorative healing process. Thought is energy. Visualization is focused thought. It has been proven in quantum physics that focused thought creates matter. Visualization creates chemical activities in the body. These chemical activities produce the right kind of energy to help the body repair itself and help to open blockages.

 

Laughter is indeed “the best” medicine. Humor therapy is being studied in the medical field. Humor therapy, specifically laughter, has been shown to have preventive and healing effects on the body. Laughter activates certain immune system responses in the body that actually fight the effects of stored stress by reducing elevated “stress” hormone levels. One study concluded that laughter has beneficial health effects for wellness and humor therapy was an appropriate complementary therapy to whole-person integrative medical therapies.

 

So, the next time you feel like crying, laugh instead. Laugh from deep within. Try to find the polar opposite expression of what you are feeling. If you are thinking about the loss of a loved one, think of something funny that person would have done or what they would have wanted you to remember about them, and find happiness in that.

 

“The human race has only one really effective weapon, and that’s laughter. The moment it arises, all our hardnesses yield, all our irritations and resentments slip away, and a sunny spirit takes their place.”

 — Mark Twain

 

Get In The Flow – The Return to Universal Energy

 

Stored stress in the body leads to blockages of your vital life force, your Qi (or prana). When blockages occur, symptoms of distress or dis-ease occur. The symptoms are there to tell you that your vital life energy isn’t flowing properly. Your vital life energy is like the air and the ocean. It seeks to flow, to circulate, to rejoin the greater body and return to the smaller lake and stream. When it is blocked, it cannot flow. Your vital life energy keeps you centered and focused on the greater purpose of life. When you suffer energy blocks, your focus becomes very narrow. You become centered on the problem caused by the energy block and lose sight of the greater picture, even of your life purpose.

 

It is vital to your life overall to learn to release the energy blocks, to let your vital life force flow back out to the Universe and back again to you, to remain on purpose in your life and realize the full potential of who you are, not only for you but for all of creation. We all have a greater purpose above our immediate self. We can only fulfill it when we are connected to Universal Energy.
