You’re moving fast, you’re juggling family, work, home, possibly a pet and a social life. Your aim – to keep everything going and to have ‘a perfect life’. Behind being the perfect parent, partner, friend, colleague and the beautiful home – are you feeling overwhelmed and anxious? Is your mind so full of ‘the next thing’ that ‘now’ is missed?
Most of us recognise this picture. And the question is – can we have it all AND feel good? Yes, you can. But do it differently.
Lets start simply. Is perfect so important? Is happiness more important?
Lets look at the idea of mind, body, soul and reverse it to Soul, Body, Mind.
Lets keep it easy.
Soul - do something for your soul that is about joy. By this I mean, be in the Nature, be in or beside a natural body of water, play with your children, hold hands with your partner, pick up your musical instrument, sing, dance. Not because you must, but because this sense of Joy medicates your Soul, which immediately changes your level of happiness. The platform you view life from is not a race, but about feeling happy moments, so happy you hum.
Body – hear your body’s cry for water. Dehydration pushes the body into a feeling of stress. Stress boosts dehydration. This cycle pushes the body into a constant feeling of flight or fight where the adrenals are working over time to keep the body’s equilibrium. By hydrating with water and reducing dehydrating diuretics (black tea, coffee, soda drinks, alcohol), stress-balance is addressed and mental focus is better. Vitamin B, particularly B5, soothes the adrenals and therefore stress. All fresh fruit and vegetables have Vitamin B, particularly green leafy vegetables and mushrooms, as does salmon, red meat and eggs.
Mind – you are one thought away from change. When your head is full of chaos or negativity, flick the switch, there is order and positivity. For everything you don’t ‘have’, see what you ‘have’. For every lost opportunity, see the gained opportunity. The people you miss, see the people you have. See your perfections as vs. imperfections.
To take away – treat your Soul, Body & Mind well. Give yourself space to feel, think and choose. Medicate with joy. Feed and water your body appropriately. Flick the mental switch. You are one thought away from changing your thinking. This is one form of vibrational medicine. This is changing your vibration and having it all.
