At the Centre of your Being is your Core Self

Let’s face it, we are all in a relative state of distress. We feel sad, anxious, dissatisfied. We yearn for a happier and an easier life, but often look in the wrong places and end up disappointed because we don’t understand our real needs. We want to feel ‘right’ and for things to ‘make sense’, yet most of the time we don’t realise what we are yearning for is our true core self.

We can think of our core as our authentic state of being before the impact of our life experiences and childhood conditioning took us away from it. It is the truth of who we are.  Place of oneness with all that is, a place of unconditional love, compassion, wisdom, joy, peace, contentment and healing.

We first experience a painful separation from our core as babies when we realise we are separate from unconditional love. We experience the imperfection of our parents, who can’t give us unconditional love. But felt even more deeply is the separation of from the unconditional love of the divine. The source from which we came. Before we had the words to name it, or the reasoning to understand it, we suffered this most cataclysmic experience. This is called our core wound.

Over time our personality, beliefs and behaviours protect us by hiding and denying our core wound and burying it in the unconscious part of our mind, sometimes never to be discovered or understood for a whole lifetime. This ‘contraction’ is the root of all or emotional and psychological pain

Connecting with your core taps into a well of spiritual energy which will nourish and enhance all parts of your life. Every resource we might ever need is found there, already within us. Take a second to let that sink in. How could that realisation transform your life?

When connected to your core, life flows effortlessly. You feel more comfortable in your own skin. You begin to love and trust yourself and to perceive the world as a more supportive, enjoyable place. Regular contact with your core creates a gradual shift to higher level of consciousness.

Our greatest and deepest longing is to return to a place of wholeness, to return to our core.

Chakras

Our Chakras absorb energy from the environment, our thoughts and our feelings. Negative energy over time can affect the Chakras which in turn can affect our health.

It is important to keep our Chakras balanced to help deal with the negative influences in our lives which may sometimes be hard to avoid. However changing our feelings from negative to positive can help protect ourselves from negative energy in the environment.

Chakras are both complex and fascinating. The root chakra is often thought of as providing energy to other chakras, so if it’s blocked or unbalanced, your other chakras are likely to be as well. Just like a building, making sure that your chakras have a firm foundation—with a balanced root chakra—is crucial to having a healthy, open chakra system. Begin to feel confident, stable and physically alive as you tap into your own renewable energy via a balanced root chakra.

Although there are hundreds of chakras spinning ideally in a clockwise direction, there are seven major ones, attracting healthy energy for us to absorb, while at the same time, throwing off negative energy we no longer need. The healthier the chakra, the more energy we attract. The more energy we attract and hold on to, the healthier and stronger and happier we can be. A healthy chakra is one that is spinning rapidly in a clockwise direction, with no blocks to stop the flow of the Chi or Prana (Universal Energy or Life Force) that we need to live. Chakras, however are not always healthy, and for the most part are forever changing. The state of the chakras depends on many different factors, such as lifestyle, thought patterns, emotional history and past life history as well. As one moves through life and its experiences, the chakras are absorbing the effects.

Chakra balancing addresses both the body and spirit. On a physical level, clearing the chakras heal the physical body by releasing stored blocks accumulated through a lifetime of traumas and negative experiences. Once these blocks are gone, the body can return to its original natural state of perfect health and the results will be readily noticed.

Meditation

Any body can learn to meditate. All it takes is patience and perseverance. You don’t have to be religious or into any new age philosophy. When you decide to give it a go, you need to create the right conditions.

Your Meditation Space
It would be ideal to set aside a room which is kept for meditation only, so the spiritual energy you generate can build up and cleanse the room. However, this is the ideal and if you are unable to have the luxury of a separate meditation room choose a space perhaps in the corner of your bedroom, where you can sit and meditate without being disturbed. The area ideally will be simply furnished; all you need is an upright chair (not an armchair or comfy chair) and a table. Keep the space/room neat and tidy; open the window frequently to let fresh air circulate to cleanse it. Decorate with uplifting pictures, perhaps some crystals, candles, fresh flowers and some relaxing music in the background. This is your special place, your sanctuary.
Try to make time to meditate for 15 minutes morning or evening to start, increasing to 30 minutes or more when you become more experienced. The quality of the meditation is far more important than the quantity. Early morning is generally considered the best time for meditation, before you become absorbed in the business of the day. Choose a time which suits you and stick to it. Regular practise helps to condition and train the brain/mind. The more you meditate the easier it becomes.

There are different levels of the mind, caused by the different brainwaves explained below.

Beta (13- 40 cycles per second)
Beta is associated with our waking activity. During a day we experience all the brainwave patterns with a predominance of Beta.

Alpha (8-13 cycles per second)
The first pattern discovered in 1908 by an Austrian Psychiatrist named Hans Berger. Alpha pattern appears when in wakefulness where there is a relaxed and effortless alertness. Light meditation and day dreaming. It is recommended practicing your creative visualization and auto-suggestion technique in alpha state.

Theta (4-7 cycles per second)
Associated with creativity, dreams and Extra-sensory perception for the student the theta state is something to learn to go at will.

To obtain these different levels you have to quiet the mind by concentrating on a mantra or your breathing. The times you feel most resistant to meditating is the time your body will need it the most. Meditation puts you in contact with the things that are buried in the unconscious mind. The reason we bring our subconscious painful memories to the surface is because they are affecting our lives today. Just because we do not remember them does not mean they are not influencing our lives. Many of the beliefs upon which we run our lives rest on decisions we made as a child. Meditation can help you work through and overcome fears that stop us being our true selves. Meditation also helps you find that place within where you feel calm and peaceful at all times, even when life is tough. You will feel happier, be able to make changes when you want to, accept and be in the present and plan for you future.

Research – Benefits to the body

Improved Health
A study of health insurance statistics of 2000 people practising meditation consistently over a five year period revealed that their rate of hospitalisation was less than half of the other groups with comparable age, gender, profession, and insurance terms. Meditators also had fewer incidents of illness in 17 medical treatment categories. Some of the results were quite outstanding; 87% less admissions for cardiovascular disease, 55% less cancer, 87% less for diseases of the nervous system, 73% less for nose throat and lung problems. Psychosomatic Medicine 1987.

Lower Blood Pressure
At the Harvard Medical School Dr. Herbert Benson found that meditators develop what he calls the “relaxation response” to difficult or dangerous situations. This is a much healthier response than the very common “fight or flight” reaction. He also observed that during meditation the heart rate decreases on average by three beats a minute, and that the rate of breathing also decreases. The blood pressure of those who have high blood pressure is reduced during meditation. Dr.Benson found that all the traditional methods of meditation evoke this response. He also found that four basic elements are needed. They are a quiet environment, an object for the attention to dwell on, a comfortable posture and, above all a non-discriminatory attitude towards meditation. This is exactly what the Buddha taught two thousand five hundred years ago.

Reduced Anxiety
A study conducted at Stanford University reported a reduced level of anxiety amongst the participants who meditated. Journal of Clinical Psychology (1989)

Decreased Stress
A study of meditators showed a reduction in plasma cortisol, a stress hormone, during and after meditation. Hormones and Behaviour (1978)

Deep Rest
A scientific measure of deep rest is the amount of basal skin resistance and lower respiration rates. Experiments comparing meditation to resting with eyes closed have shown that meditation is significantly more effective. Similarly meditation also reduces the amount of lactate (a root cause of anxiety, panic attacks and high blood pressure). American Psychologist (1987)

Reversal of the Aging Process
A study group of long-term meditators (practising meditation for five years or more) were physiologically twelve years younger than their chronological age, as measured by reduction of blood pressure, and better near-point vision and auditory discrimination. Short-term meditators were physiologically five years younger than their chronological age. The study controlled for the effects of diet and exercise. International Journal of Neuroscience 1982.

Increased Perception and Memory
College students instructed in meditation displayed significant improvements in performance over a two-week period on a perceptual and short-term memory test involving the identification of familiar letter sequences presented rapidly. They were compared with subjects randomly assigned to a routine of twice-daily rest with eyes closed, and with subjects who made o change in their daily routine. Memory and Cognition (1982)

Snail Gel the potent, soothing, anti-ageing skin cream

The healing and repairing properties of the snails slime, which is harvested without harming the snails, the mucus from the snails is collected as they crawl over special glass and plastic surfaces. The discovery was made by chance when the Chilean snail farmers noticed their hands healed more quickly without any scars and were very soft and smooth to the touch. The natural extract Helix Aspersia Muller the unique substance the snail produces to quickly regenerate its own shell and skin, contains a balance of beneficial substances which include glycolic acid, collagen, elastin, allantonin, vitamins and minerals.

This is how all the substances work to produce great looking hSnail Gelealthy skin:

Glycolic Acid

Snail Gel contains enough glycolic acid to produce a gentle elimination of superficial dead skin cells and help to promote their replacement with new cells, formed using the stimulus of allantoin. It also enables cleansing

Allantoin

A proven stimulant for skin regeneration – also effective for healing, smoothing and anti-irritation – that works by increasing water content and strengthening cell structure.

Collagen and elastin

These are structural proteins that bond skin tissue, nurture skin and improve its appearance. Collagen gives connective tissue and organs rigidity so they can function, and elastin lets them stretch and return to their original state.

Proteins and vitamins

Contribute to the constant regeneration of skin while also acting as anti-inflammatory agents.

Dr Organic snail gel is mixed with Aloe Vera which is very cooling and helps to reduce redness in the skin and it also contains lemongrass which gives it a lovely lemon smell.  The gel feels instantly cooling and refreshing on the skin and it is a freshness that lasts and the lemon scent is very awakening.

If you would like to try the gel before buying a pot for between £20 and £25, you can book a facial with me at a pamper event or a full luxury facial at home

Thought for the Month

…that every day is a New Beginning.
A new cycle begins this day, yet a new cycle begins every day. Indeed, every moment. So if you recognise anything on this day, recognise what it symbolises: The miracle of the endlessly continuing Cycle of Life.

What a grand day! What a time for celebration! We begin again today! We turn the page! And so, let go of all that you do not wish to carry with you any further.
Any fear, any sadness, any anger, any resentment, any disappointment, any lament…let it all go. And now, using the specialness of this day as a springboard, let’s get on with Life!

Thought for the Month

….that it’s okay to make mistakes. Mistakes are our friends — they help us to grow.
Actually, it is impossible to make a ‘mistake’ in real terms, since everything that we call a ‘mistake’ actually brings us benefit.
So march ahead with all the power and the fierce urgency of Now and don’t worry about “mistakes.”
Rather, worry about being afraid not to make any.

Did you know…?

Shiny lustrous locks aren’t  just for movie stars.  You can have them too if you want them.  Here are a few tips.

If you’ve got fine hair, look for a shampoo with wheat proteins and polymers. These ingredients coat the hair shaft making it look thicker (hence the lustrous look). You can also use spray volumisers. These will deposit a light mist of shine in the form of droplets but won’t make it all limp and lifeless. 

If you’ve got normal hair, try a shampoo that has silk amino acids, as these soften and repair hair structure. Lecithin also restores hair texture. To add that shimmery shine of the A-listers you can use gels and creams. To apply the product without it going all gooey, apply it on your palm, rub your hands together and pat gently on to your hair.

And for thick or heavy hair, use pomades they will not only make your hair shiny but will also moisturise so your hair is more supple.

Have you ever tried…?

Microfiber for Exfoliation. Those microfiber cloths they sell for cleaning and dusting. The fibres are ideal for exfoliating the skin if you need to. All you need to do is apply your favourite facial wash to the skin and lather using circular motions with the microfiber cloth. Rinse the face and the cloth and hang to dry!

Thought of the Month….

……….that imagination is your greatest gift. Do not be afraid to use it.

Imagine yourself as being okay right now. Totally okay.

Imagine yourself as Whole, Complete, and Perfect. With nothing to change, nothing to “improve.”

Imagine your heart as being open again, your life as if it were starting over in the most important ways.

Can you imagine this?

Then you have just created Tomorrow.

Mustard will remove lingering smells from old bottles. When cleaning out a bottle or bowl that has been used to store a food item that has left a lingering odour, sometimes soap and water will simply not cut the smell. Yellow mustard can remove that lingering smell in just a few moments. Simply add a little mustard and warm water to the container and swish around for a few moments. Rinse well and the smell is gone.

Pumpkin seeds are exceptionally good for you. They’re like nature’s own health supplement and have a wide variety of nutrients in them. They’re full of zinc, iron, magnesium and calcium.

Did you know…?

Exfoliating the underarms can increase the effectiveness of deodorant. The pores of the underarms can get clogged just as easily as the pores of the face. While many people exfoliate their facial skin once a week, they rarely exfoliate the skin of their underarms. Using the same exfoliating wash on the underarms can remove the clogs from the pores leaving the skin brighter and your deodorant more protective

Have you ever tried…?

Baby oil to make your own scented bath oil. Finding bath oil that smells like your favourite perfume can be difficult. Instead of settling for some other lightly scented oil that is outrageously priced, why not use baby oil to create your own bath oil? Simply add a few drops of your favourite scent to 1/4 cup of unscented baby oil. Add to warm bath water and voila, scented oil. 

Thought of the Month….

...that the mere apprehension of a coming evil has put many into a situation of the utmost danger.

F.L. Lucan said that, and it is right. There is no faster way to bring about misfortune than to think it is coming.

Thought is a powerful force, and it is a creative tool that many people give little energy to — or abandon in the face of any real threat to safety or stability.

What are you worried about today? Why? Rather than worry about it, would it not be a better use of your mental time to visualize a positive outcome?

Use your mind in this way today and you will have tapped one of the most extraordinary tools for the creation of your tomorrows.

Did you know…?

Sleep is made up of different stages. During a normal night we will cycle through the different stages several times.

– Stage one: the ten minute period of light sleep or dozing.
– Stage two: a deeper sleep that lasts for about 20 minutes and
– Stages three and four: types of deep sleep.

We need deep sleep! This is when our body and brain recover from the day. If you aren’t getting enough sleep you are not going to be able to function at a normal level. So make sure you get your 8 hours a night. Keep your room just for sleeping. If there are stimulants in there you will take longer to switch off. Make it comfortable, dark and cool. And of course, if you are having real trouble sleeping see your doctor.

Have you ever tried…?

Homemade Vitamin E cream for anti aging. Many of the anti aging products today are fabulous, but lots are also full of chemicals that are horrible for sensitive skin. Instead of trying a new product – hoping you will like the ingredients – make you own anti aging cream. In a bowl add 2 tsp plain yogurt, 1/2 tsp honey, 1/2 tsp lemon juice and the Vitamin E oil from 3 capsules. Mix and apply to the facial skin. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse away. Vitamin E is a fantastic antioxidant. As with anything new, make sure to do a test patch of your home made cream before applying fully.

Thought of the Month….

……that no one does anything they do not want to do.
You always have a reason–and usually, a pretty good one– for doing what you are doing and choosing what you are choosing. Be careful not to convince yourself that you are doing something against your will. Such a thing is impossible.
Therefore, be honest with yourself as to why you are choosing to do a particular thing. Then, do it gladly, knowing that you are always getting to do what you want. The statement “I have no choice” is a lie. You can choose. You simply do not prefer the alternatives available to you, for whatever reason. So you select the outcome that you most prefer. Isn’t that power?

Neale Walsch

Did you know…?

We all want a healthy body! And many of us spend our lives jumping from diet to diet forgetting the importance of muscle. For every extra pound of muscle we add to our bodies we lose an extra 50 calories a day whether we are active or not.  For a healthy body, make sure to build muscle as well as lose fat.

Have you ever tried…?

Blueberries to reduce inflammation. Blueberries contain antioxidants that can reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation is now thought to be one of the main causes in certain diseases like diabetes and cancer. These antioxidants also fight off free radicals which can leave the skin looking and feeling younger as healthy cells begin to regain control over the free radical producing cells.  Considering it is fruit so it’s nice and healthy we think it’s worth a try!

Thought of the Month….

….. that when you see the light at the end of the tunnel, it is not beneficial to go out and build more tunnel.

It was John Quinton who observed that politicians do that.

Maybe you’ve caught yourself doing it, too.

Just when things look like they’re getting better, you start seeing more things that “aren’t right,” or “could go wrong.”

The Universe is essentially a friendly place.

So friendly, in fact, that it will give you exactly what you expect it to.

Isn’t that wonderful? Of course, it depends on what you expect…
