Law of Attraction Healing

Awaken to your innate power to heal


Meditation for Anxiety & StressStress and anxiety are related. Many times they are a result of a perceived threat or negative thought. As a result, you undergo a stress response. You releases all types of stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. These stress hormones have profound effects on your body. Your blood pressure rises, your immune system gets suppressed, along with a whole series of reactions.

 

Meditation affects the body in exactly the opposite ways that stress does. It restores the body to a calm state, helps the body to repair itself, and prevents new damage due to the physical effects of

Lotus Pose

If you are finding it challenging to sit comfortably in a meditation posture for more than a few minutes, then it is possible that you need to relax certain areas of your body. There are two regions, I suggest you focus on. They are the hip (pelvic region) and the lower back.

Goddess Pose

The goddess pose (supta baddha konasana) is an excellent restorative yoga pose for both opening the hips and relaxing the lower back. Practice the goddess pose 2-3 times a week for several months and you will notice that you are able to sit in a meditation

Raise your vibration with meditation

Question

What are some ways to raise my vibration to relieve anxiety and stress?

Answer

Meditation is one way in which to raise your vibration. It raises your vibration because you let go and allow higher vibrating (source) energy to flow through your body by releasing your thoughts. You let go of the mental chatter and thereby allow energy to flow through your body. Conversely this means that your thoughts can curtail the amount of energy that you allow into your body.

 

Let's look at this another way. When you have thoughts that are of a low vibration then

Your mind is a garden

Your mind is a garden.Your thoughts are the seeds. You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds. Have you realized the seed thoughts that are floating around in your head on a daily basis? Are the majority of these negative or positive thoughts? If you are experiencing anxiety, then a majority of them are negative in nature and they directly affect your anxiety level. Negative thoughts increase anxiety levels and positive thoughts decrease anxiety. This is due to the fact that negative thoughts cause a release of stress hormones in the body, which results in a cascade of events,

Human Energy FieldWhat do you do when you start the meditation for anxiety and stress process and start to release "energies"(emotional and/or physical) faster than you have the time to adjust? Well this is known as a healing crisis. When a healing crisis occurs, you have several options:

 

  1. Do more of what you are doing in order to move the "energy", which can manifest itself emotionally and/or physically. For instance, your daily qigong practice of 20 minutes may have "released" an old emotional wound you had carrying around for many years. When it gets "released" it is causing you stomaches, in

Thich quoteYesterday I was reminded of the beauty of being present by a movie, 50 First Dates. For those who have not seen it, in the movie, the main female character played by Drew Barrymore has a memory problem. Her short-term memory is only good from the time she awakens until the time that she falls asleep. As a result, every day is a new day for her. Every day she wakes up and forgets about what happened yesterday. Of course, there is more to it in the movie, however, let's just focus on this aspect. How wonderful to just be

Emptying your cup storyBased on the zen story presented in the tea meditation article, I received a question on how to explain emptying a cup to a person who has not started meditating.

 

Answer

That question has many levels to it. It all depends on your level of consciousness. How does a beginner start to understand this? As stated in the story "You are full of your own opinions and assumptions and must let them go. How can you learn truth until you first empty your cup?" In relation to meditation, you must learn to let go of what you expect to

Mindful Eating

 

How can mindful eating help you with anxiety, stress and emotional healing? Well, most people eat without thought to what they are eating. They are actively engaged in conversation, thinking about something in their head, watching tv, etc. All of these activities can be stressful, cause one to become anxious or exacerbate your anxiety. If you spend the time to focus on what you are doing, you will quiet the mental chatter. When you quiet the mental chatter, you reduce stressful hormones, you become less anxious and you become less emotionally taxed.

“Peace begins with a smile.” A very profound quote from Mother Teresa. Smiling is oftentimes overlooked as a simple way to bring peace into your life. Smile more often and you will bring peace to your heart.

Raise your Vibration

 

What is raising your vibration?

As a practitioner of qigong, I like to explain many aspects in terms of energy. Energy is all around us and it vibrates at a certain level. The level at which you vibrate is a reflection of the level of health, stress and anxiety you have in your life. When you are in a relaxed, uplifted mood and healthy state, then collectively you are vibrating at a level above the "I feel good" bar. (Please watch video below)

Well everyone is different and as such their experiences will be different. Most people feel an immediate sense of relaxation.  This is due to many things, one of which is a quieting of the mind.  Many also begin to notice areas in their body they have never noticed before such as a particular tension* in an area.  This is due to a placing of your focus inwardly.  You are now beginning to notice areas of your body that have decreased energy flow and need to be opened.  In a similar line of discussion, you may also notice you develop certain

Gratitude for stress and anxiety

You may be wondering how does gratitude relate to stress, anxiety, emotional as well as physical healing? Well it has a lot to do with it.

When you make a point to turn your focus to gratitude, you open your heart. You also divert your attention away from a stressful, anxious or emotionally taxing situation. Placing your attention on something more uplifting

Qigong for anxiety

Think of the body as energy or better yet as a highway of energy with energetic routes. The energy that flows through these energetic routes can normally pass through at a high rate, however, when there is a blockage, the energy cannot flow. This leads to an imbalance of energies in the body. The flow of Qi or energy can be interrupted by several factors, including anxiety, stress, anger, fear or grief. When this occurs, disharmony in the body occurs. The only way to bring the body back into balance is to release the blockage and allow the energetic
