YOU and YOUR SPIRIT

 

YOUR spirit, mind and body all goes together – and has to be

 

BALANCED in order for you to have a happy and healthy aging

 

life so YOU do not die sick and have to be taken care.  The goal

 

here at this website on and on this podcast is for you to live

 

a stress less, comfortable, and physically active life.  You

 

cannot do that unhealthy, in debt, or in bad relationships-whether

 

with family or friends, whether with women or men.

 

YOUR SPIRIT can provide a:

 

Reassuring belief in a greater force or being

 

Sense of purpose and meaning

 

Focus on your own or univsal wisdom

 

Way to understand suffering

 

Connection with other

 

Reminder of the good in the world

 

I believe in a higher power, GOD, some call the force that created

 

The whole universe

 

Consider some of the science on religion and spirituality:

 

People who meditate have increased activity in a “feel-good”

 

are of the brain.

 

People with strong religious beliefs recovered faster from heart

 

surgery than people with weaker faith

 

People who did not attend religious services died significantly

 

younger than those who attended more than once a week

 

There are different paths of spirituality that are listed:

 

Religious institutions:

 

they say people who attend a house of worship regularly are

 

happier and healthier, research shows.  Likely because of the

 

social connection.

 

Pray or focus on your notion of God.

 

Read religious texts

 

Talk with others

 

Volunteer

 

 

Meditation:

 

Research also shows that meditation offer not only calm but help

 

with anxiety and depression, cancer, chronic pain, asthma, heart

 

disease and high blood pressure.

 

Take up to an hour a day

 

Here are some types of meditations you may do:

 

Deep breathing

 

Mindfulness meditation

 

Visualization

 

Repeating a mantra

 

Some of these paths to your spiritual side:

 

Focus on your goals, values and belief

 

Keep a journal

 

Read inspiring stories or essays

 

Be open to new experiences

 

Look at what is good in yourself and others

 

Listed below are 10 tools that you could use:

 

  1. Connect with others

 

  1. Stay positive

 

  1. Get physically active

 

  1. Help others

 

  1. Get enough sleep

 

  1. Create joy and satisfaction

 

  1. Eat well

 

  1. Take care of your spirit

 

  1. Deal better with hard times

 

  1. Get professional help if you need it

 

Over the years I have done all of the above and each have

 

helped me over the years.

 

I am a work in progress still – almost 75 years old – I am still a

 

work in progress and will be until I pass over the bridge.

 

The #1 thing YOU need to take care of is stress

 

All of the above should help you do that but be:

 

Strong

 

Courageous

 

Forgiving

 

If you cannot handle stress nothing is going to work well for long

 

Anger, stress, not forgiving, jealous.  These are hurtful things

 

that can destroy your life. – your mind, body and spirit.

 

Stay above these things –get them out of your life.

Always be Proactive

 

 

There is nothing wrong with having fun, being with family and

 

Friends.  We have to be careful about how much we do

 

anything.

 

 

Especially if you believe you may have any addictions

 

There are many issues that can become addictions besides

 

Alcohol and drugs (illegal or legal).

 

There is:

 

Food

 

Spending

 

Exercising

 

Loosing weight

 

Eating

 

Depression

 

 

Sleeping

 

 

 

There is almost everything that can become addictions.

 

 

It is about a sense of self and the way you live your life.  You can

 

Determine importance not only by how much you are doing it, but

 

how much you are letting other things go that needs to be done.

 

also by how much you are not doing other things.

 

 

PRIORITY EQUALS IMPORTANCE

 

 

 

There is nothing wrong engaging in pleasurable activity but there

 

Is a line between activity and addiction when the activity that is?

 

positive or neutral takes a decidedly negative turn.

 

Different families have weakened genes and DNA that if

 

A person takes recreational pot that can be a door to more drugs:

 

Meth, cocaine, heron, a murid number of things.  Take myself,

 

My family has a lot of alcoholism and drug addictions so I treat

 

myself very gingerly about drinking and have never put drugs into

 

my body.  I know I have a very addictive personality, and whether

 

it is drinking or food I am addictive.

 

 

Is what you are doing is causing a disruption in your life then you

 

need to address the issue.

 

 

I am very careful how much I drink – 1-2 glasses of wine is

 

my limit and usually only 1 or 2 times a year I will have wine

 

at home by myself.

 

Any addiction is a behavior that controls you.  Usually people

 

that have addictions do not like to be controlled but cannot

 

understand how much they are being controlled by their

 

additions.

 

Change is the most important thing in YOUR life-and it is

 

sometimes the hardest thing to do but DO IT.

 

What Life expects from YOU does not happen unless you are

 

willing to make those big changes that need to be done.

We all have issues, we all probably have some kind of addictions

 

that maybe we are not alcoholic – there are so many other kinds

 

of addictions.

 

Address those issues or addictions – make the necessary

 

Changes

 

Be courageous, be strong, be brave.  Use all YOUR good

 

energies you can dig up out of SELF.

 

Any addiction is a behavior that control YOU

 

Your impulses,

 

Your Pleasures

 

Your anxieties

 

Your fears

 

Your preferences

 

These take center stage over YOUR better judgment or reasoned

 

decisions.

 

If you believe you are struggling with an addiction that is

 

Negatively impacting the quality and health of your life, it may be

 

Time to seek assistance from a professional.

Addition typically masks an underlying problem that the person

 

Does not want acknowledge or deal with.  Aa you well know, it is

 

Really not helpful to tell the person “You have a problem in your

 

Thinking.”  Instead, much better to acknowledge the suffering and

 

Build a level of trust until the person is willing to discuss it, and if

 

Not then jut let it go.  Convincing people that they have a thinking

 

Defect is extremely damaging (if they actually believe it) and sets

 

Them up for abuse and exploitation.

WHAT IS YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS?

You need to use this under utilized part of the spirit and mind.

Sometimes there are times in our life when we have difficult

situations and cannot see our way clear, the best procedure

Is to assume that infinite intelligence within your subconscious

Mind knows all and sees all, has the answer and will reveal it to

You now.  Your new mental attitude will help bring about a happy

Solution and enable you to find the answer.   Attitude of mind will

Bring order, peace, and meaning to all YOUR undertakings.

YOU are a creature of habit.

A HABIT IS A FUNCTION OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.

DID YOU KNOW THAT?

That if you have a habit it is your subconscious mind.  I would

Have known that if I had not read Dr, Murphy’s books 30 years

ago.

To expand SELF – YOU are going to have expand SELF.

To expand SELF, YOU are going to have to be here at

this website because it is the only website or only place that

wants YOU to find:

WHAT LIFE EXPECTS FROM YOU

And to find out what life expects from you

YOU need to know SELF:  Mind, Body and Spirit Balanced

and keep developing and keep learning about SELF and keep

growing and expanding.

My spirit soars with forgiveness, peace and harmony and joy.

The habit of keeping your good habits on track and getting rid

of the negative habits.  It is hard to get rid of bad habits, and it

may take some considerable time to get rid of them.

Forgive yourself for whatever it is in your past.  Forgive others

for their transgression against YOU

Harmonize all of SELF – mind, body, and spirit.

But when you learn to harmonize the functions of the conscious

And sub-conscious mind the two will cooperate, and the idea or

Desire implanted in the subconscious mind is realized.

IT IS AN AUTOMATIC “ON” BUTTON WHEN YOU DO THESE

THINGS

BE BRAVE

BE COURAGEOUS

BE YOU

YOUR SPIRIT WILL SOUR

When your relaxing body is getting into a relaxed, drowsy, and

meditative state and fill your mind with the picture of the desired

end, knowing YOUR subconscious mind can bring YOUR

desires and wants into being.

 

Be regular, and practice and meditate in the way outlined above

and your subconscious will keep working for the rest of your

life

You can liken your conscious mind to a camera and that your

subconscious mind is the sensitive plate on which he registered

and impressed the picture.

FOCUS

USE YOUR EMOTIONS

REPEAT DAILY AND WITH EMOTIONS

YOU just need to meditate and focus and sit quietly have it

become a habit

Confidently expect to experience the picture YOU are developing

in YOUR mind.

BELIEVE

Be there for YOU

Have an intense desire to overcome any block in your llife and

You will come to a clear-cut decision that there is a way out and

the course you wish to follow, and then victory and triumph

will be assured.

YOUR mind has walls that have been built up since you were

In womb and the nutrients, thoughts from your parents and your

environment.  Be open and mindful of what goes into YOUR

mind.  Put the powerful, encouraging and empowering thoughts

and words into YOU.  YOUR life will change for the better.

 

Thank the universe, God, the life you have been given, and

be thankful for the days you are here.

 

Think SELF first because the more you are mindful of SELF

the more you can do for family and friends.

 

Think big, think grand for SELF and be thankful and grateful.

Do not live with rose-colored glasses on so think for yourself

on subjects important to YOU.  There are always a PRO and

CON thought on every subject – take the subject important to

you and do the research on that subject so you are clear in

YOUR mind.

 

When my sister had been given 2 weeks to live she and I were

talking and she said she wished she would have done more

with her life because she knew she could have.  I told her “I

knew she could have also”.  The reason she did not do more

with her life is because:

She would have had to ponder about SELF

She would have had to learn about SELF

She would want to expand SELF

She would have had to step out of SELF

She would have had to work on SELF

She would have had to encourage SELF

She would have to empower SELF

She would have to learn new things for SELF

She would have had to read non-fiction for SELF

 

Because I knew my sister well – those are the things I

observed from childhood.

For myself, I work on all those items all the time.

Life is difficult, Life is not easy, Life can be wonderful,

Life is not stressful when SELF is in control of SELF

 

The following are some recommendations that may help SELF

  1. Turn off the TV
  2. Join a new group for different thoughts
  3. Never complain or whine
  4. Smile going into the store
  5. Do not talk about others
  6. Listen to YOUR inner self
  7. Take a new class at Kahn Academy-FREE
  8. Do not be jealous, be thankful for other’s success

I do not even like to blog about negatives – it puts too much

negative energy into the universe when we want it all to

be positive energy

 

If you have had trauma or tragedies – which most of us have

had those in some part of our lifetime.  The best way to help in

those times-those times may last years – but lithium orates will

help with that, good nutrition, and exercise also will help, along

with meditating and prayer.  Work every day working out of

the mind set from traumas and tragedies.  It is not easy and it

does not happen in 1 or 2 days.  But there is light at the end of

the tunnel when YOU are consistent with working on SELF.

Forgiveness is one of the best tools in YOUR toolbox.

Forgiveness of SELF and then everyone else.

 It does help the Spirit every day
Woman in prayer
Spirit will help you put one foot in front of the other when YOU have a loss or grief.  YOUR Spirit will lift you up to move ahead with this loss or grief.  Sometimes, it may not be today or tomorrow but YOUR Spirit is there to help and lift you up to start the new day.
Grief can be from anything, and it takes SELF to get through it – everyone gets through grief on their own time schedule and it is not always easy.  But YOUR spirit is there to help you through it to the good side.
