Health, the new wealth – 4 Priceless Self Care Remedies

We all desire healthy bodies and good energy levels in order to live a full life.
Sometimes, no matter how much we try to follow good advice, we feel depleted physically and emotionally

We know how refreshing it feels after swimming in the sea, the salty water has a remarkable cleansing impact on our system, disintegrating and soothing away stress which then allows the physical body to relax and promote natural healing.

Stress Relieving Soak

Taking a cue from Mother Nature to help maintain wellbeing is as easy as taking a regular salt bath with a few drops of lavender oil either as a weekly self-care routine or more frequently if unwell, salt baths are a terrific way to accelerate the return to both physical and emotional health.

Follow these easy steps for a super, stress relieving soak:

  • Run a warm bath and add 1kg of Salt (any kind of salt except Epsom Salt as this has different properties)
  • Add 15 to 20 drops of lavender oil. You can also use tea tree oil which is particularly effective for colds and flu but don’t mix the two oils.
  • Submerge as much of the body as possible for no more than 20 minutes.  Obviously not your mouth and nose!
  • Relax and enjoy the purifying effects.
  • Rinse off under the shower.

Connect With Nature

We can so often fall into the trap of believing that keeping healthy is a stressful and punishing process when in fact it is the very opposite, once we learn to nurture our bodies in a loving way, our immune system will be strengthened. Another way to increase vitality is by connecting to nature around us, take time when going on a walk to breathe deeply and walk barefoot on the beach or grass.
Healthy trees exude natural energy, also known as prana, so seek one out and take a few moments to lie or sit under it, relax and experience an uplift in your sense of well being. Pine trees are particularly good as they are evergreens.

Meditate

Financial Wellness for All

Do you need money to be happy?

No, but let’s be realistic, you can’t do the things your heart desires if there aren’t the funds to support it. Money is an enabler and it affects every area of your life.

Your finances, indirectly, affect your body physically. If funds are low, you might have to work very hard or even take on two jobs to supplement your income, becoming physically drained can affect your immune system. Your financial situation can also put a lot of stress on your relationships. How many times does an argument stem from money? It can affect your self-esteem too. Lack of self-worth can create stress, anxiety and depression. Depression can even stop you from getting out of bed and taking opportunities that present themselves, which might be able to change and improve your situation.

So how are your finances?  

Have you looked at them lately?

Do you know what your income and outgoings are?

The point of this exercise is to make you aware of your thoughts and actions around money and finances. If you don’t address things then you can’t make the necessary changes needed to improve.

Take some time to look at your finances. Make a list of your incomings and outgoings.

Is there a shortfall? Where can you cut back? Be organised, don’t overspend, budget for events and purchases.

Thoughts are just energy which your mind creates. It doesn’t matter where your thoughts or beliefs about money came from, it’s what you do about them now.

There is an easy way to move forward, take control and have a more positive outlook around your life and finances, which will make you feel more empowered.

By taking specific  Pranic Healing classes and using the simple techniques taught, you can overcome financial worries, gain a sense of inner peace and improve your mental clarity.

Attending these courses isn’t just about ‘healing’ as in the normal sense we understand ie healing others. They teach you many ways, all tested and validated to help improve your life. Lessons like scheduling, organisation and how to use the ancient sciences and natural laws to attract prosperity and wealth.

But what can you do about removing the repeating negative thoughts surrounding finances?

With Level 3 Pranic Psychotherapy, there is no limit to what you can achieve. Not only can you remove stress and anxiety from the body, but can also learn how to remove the emotions of fear, self-doubt and low self-esteem.

And it doesn’t stop there. In classes like Spiritual Business Management and Kriyashakti, you learn how to run your life like a business and the art of materialisation.

Pranic Healing is the gateway to a world of possibilities to improve your life and the lives of others, not only physically, but emotionally thus creating a better life and financial wellness for all.

 

Mind and Mental Health

How many times does someone ask you how you feel and your reply hides the way you are feeling emotionally?
If you feel low emotionally this will affect your physical wellbeing. What can start with a little stress can lead to a mild headache, which if not addressed can lead to long term migraines which have may need to be medically supervised.
This is just one of many examples of when a physical condition arises from unregulated, unhelpful emotions.

Putting mental health first
Do you prioritise physical ailments over emotional ones even when the underlying emotional condition normally arises first?
Society has come a long way in the last 10 years in raising awareness around psychological and mental health but the stigma which is often associated with them still remains. There is still a way to go. Statistically, men find it harder to talk about how they are feeling emotionally.

To date 1 in 8 men has undisclosed mental health problems. Historically, society has created an unrealistic expectation for men to be emotionally strong and not show or address their feelings. This has had an adverse effect.
In the UK, the prison population is mostly men, with many of these being diagnosed with mental health illnesses.
In 2017, 75% of suicide cases were male. Suicide represents the largest cause of death for men under 50.

Reaching out

Great strides are being made to help both sexes suffering mental ill health. The UK’s Heads Together Campaign, the Mental Health Foundation and Mental Health First aid courses are becoming more widely known as a source of support, signposting people towards solutions.

The Path to Recovery

Like physical illness, mental ill health needs to be addressed as soon as possible so a person can recover quickly, giving them the best chance of having a good life. With medical professionals under pressure and long waiting lists, people are choosing to look for other ways to ease their situation.

Pranic Healing can be very beneficial to enhance the speed of recovery both physically and emotionally.

There are protocols to help all manner of conditions. Whilst a person is waiting for a referral and also for those already receiving care as it very much complements orthodox medicine.

As well as the treatment a Pranic therapist will help the patient by equipping them with self-care tools and techniques including specific breathing exercises and meditation practices.

Changing Lives

Changing lives on a daily basis, Pranic Healing is helping to alleviate the fog of mental health. Symptoms are being relieved through an effective system of treatments and self-care practices. With such success, many people are taking the courses and learning for themselves how to heal and enhance their lives and the lives of those around them.

A Mother’s reflection on Wellbeing for Children

According to Mental Health England, one in ten young people experiences a mental health issue at any one time. Enabling them to take care of their physical and mental wellbeing is of utmost importance as it has a direct impact on their future.  

Even in the absence of any trauma experienced in childhood, navigating the natural emotional ups and downs of hormonal changes, family dynamics, working out where they fit in and now the pressures of social media can be enough to trigger one of many mental health issues.  

Reflecting back on my own childhood, which was not without emotional turbulence, there’s no doubt that children nowadays are facing more pressures than ever and statistics seem to back up my own observations. It, therefore, feels paramount that we arm our children with a full tool kit of techniques they can employ to help build resilience to whatever life throws at them.

When I first discovered Pranic Healing and the techniques I could learn, I had no idea of the value it would bring to my whole family, particularly my children.  

This has played out in two distinct ways.

  1.     Helping myself has had direct positive benefits on those around me:

How many times have your children ‘played up’ when you’ve been in a bad mood?  Children are highly sensitive to energy and it’s certainly no coincidence that when you’re not feeling so good, your child’s behaviour may start to deteriorate.  As I started to learn more and more about energy, I see this more clearly than ever.

  1.     Being able to apply the techniques I’ve learnt on my children:

My eldest son has been open and receptive to me applying Pranic Healing on him since the day I started learning, at which point he was three years old.  Even now, five years later, he will ask for healing if he’s under the weather. Helping with physical pain has been wonderful but even more powerful has been the psychotherapy techniques that I’ve seen help him through periods of change.

The benefits I’ve witnessed to young people go beyond my own family and those young people I’ve treated one-to-one. Many Pranic therapists have been running relaxation and wellbeing sessions in schools and the community across the UK and Ireland.  

The sessions aim to give children some valuable ‘me’ time, enable them to deal with challenging emotions and help them overcome commonly occurring stress and anxiety.  The testimonials from the children, parents and teachers speak volumes about the power of what these simple and easy to implement techniques can do. At the heart of it all is the ability to become aware of oneself.

Helping young people to build self-awareness and equipping them with tools to help deal with the emotions and experiences that come with growing up is vital to enable them to take control of their own physical and mental wellbeing.
