(Sofia Adamson) “When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds, we will find it in our lives.” ~Louise L. Hay, You Can Heal Your Life
(Michelle Simmons) A new study showed that women can recover from postpartum depression by singing with their babies in a group. For the study, a team of researchers from the Centre for Performance Science analyzed the associations of singing and creative workshops, and standard postpartum care on postpartum depression.
(Aletheia Luna) In our families, cultures and societies, we are often taught that if you have a health issue… go to a doctor! If you suffer from stress, tension or anxiety, go to a therapist… they’ll prescribe the very best pills and medications for you! Oh yes!
(Arjun Walia) The human brain is fascinating. It’s so complex that it’s hard to believe we will ever understand it. We still have yet to think in quantum terms about our biology, and just like physics, factoring consciousness into the equation is going to change everything. Right now, we are in the midst of a new scientific revolution, and that’s non-material science. It has huge implications for health, and science is now confirming just how strong the mind-body connection really is. It’s fascinating, to say the least.
(Richard Enos) As we discussed in Part 1, the fundamental thing that distinguishes us as human beings at our current evolutionary stage from most of the more advanced ET civilizations is that they know that they are all one, whereas our population is widely variant in our embodied awareness of this. Further, most of those who are currently in positions of power on our planet are among the most disconnected and alienated from humanity as a collective.
(RJ Jhonson) Here’s a quick question: how much do the bacteria in your gut weigh? The answer is three pounds, although the number can go up to more than four. That’s a lot of bacteria! Given this figure, it isn’t so surprising that your gut microbiome, the bacteria population in your intestines, can have a considerable impact on your health. Some experts have even found certain bacterial species, aptly termed psychobiotics, that can affect the workings of your brain.
(RJ Jhonson) Do you find yourself getting stressed all the time? You should watch your cortisol levels. This hormone, aptly called the “stress hormone,” helps your body deal with emergencies, but continuous flow of it can lead to a variety of health problems. Thankfully, you can control your cortisol levels through natural means, particularly, by taking the right supplements.
(Justin Deschamps) The following article is an in-depth and cohesive presentation of the problems that can arise from failing to process and release negative emotions. Emotions are energy, and the body is a capacitor, literally capable of storing electrical energy that itself has information. When we learn how to release this energy in a healthy way, it liberates our consciousness to grow as well as improves our emotional balance and overall state of being.
(Earl Garcia) Lack of sleep may do more than induce a “spaced out” feeling as recent research published in the Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry found that sleep deprivation may lead to the persistence of repetitive negative thoughts. Researchers at the State University of New York at Binghamtonexplained that repetitive negative thinking occurs when a person focuses on distressing and unhelpful thoughts and stimuli, which in turn may result in a decreased quality of life and the onset of mental health problems associated with depression and anxiety.
(Rhonda Johansson) Across all the literature and studies on the potential link between mental health and one’s diet, experts agree that cutting down on inflammatory foods is a sure-fire way to feel better. The effects can be likened to the domino effect; with healthier food improving physical function, which in turn boosts mental health. Unsurprisingly, this strengthened mental capacity encourages people to be more physically fit, thus completing the cycle for better overall health.
(Carol Anderson) It’s great that more people are becoming aware of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and how it affects those who were diagnosed with it. Recently, an addition to the list of PTSD effects has been added by researchers – one that is a bit more alarming than the others.
(Jessica Dolores) The saying that hope springs eternal is a paean to positive thinking. The idea that things will work out well, no matter how gloomy everything seems to be, has made champions out of losers; billionaires out of college dropouts.
(Christy Bonner) “You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.” ~Maya Angelou
The Power of True Strength in Emotion — Keys to An Enlightened Planet
Strength is not the suppression of powerful and intense emotions, the hiding of tears or the masking of feelings.
(Jack Adam Webber) A rich inner life requires us to be energetically empty inside. By this I mean that we have cleared our heart of enough pain to blossom inwardly. This way we aren’t hauling around significant emotional baggage from unmet childhood needs and unreckoned repeats of these traumas into adulthood. Source – Collective Evolution […]
