DID YOU KNOW....EMOTIONAL WELLNESS HAS TO BE PRACTICED?
I think it is important to me, as a Holistic Health Practitioner, to speak truth into the World, that ALL people can breathe in. In the United States of America, we are suffering thru some turbolent times regarding Race Relations, because in my opinion, WE, the People, have not been able to speak truth about what INJUSTICE really means and how that plays into Emotional Wellness.
My favorite Orator, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was so eloquent when he stated that.... "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere!" But, more profound were his words, when he stated....."We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now!" Globally and Nationally.....this is becoming SO TRUE....WE ARE IN THE SAME BOAT NOW!! I recently posted on Facebook to vent my anger, hurt and sadness about the VIOLENCE taking place across the World, but more close to me, here in the United States. Violence has taken innocent lives.....BLACK AND WHITE!!! SO...As painful as it seems.....NOW, WE ARE IN THE SAME BOAT! The Tipping Point is sweeping the country and the rage is degrading the emotional wellness for many people. I do not want to contribute to the fury taking place and I want to speak my mind and offer a different view!! The toll of hurt and pain is high and no matter what side you are on, it is time that we individually make a CHOICE to practice and keep our EMOTIONAL WELLNESS in top shape during these times! It is our choice! So, I want to explore and share with the World, HOW we all can have Mindfullness in our MIND, BODY & SPIRIT during these turbulent times.
When I look at the definition of Emotional Wellness, I choose to define it as that dimension that is focused on wellness which involves putting the mirror up to SELF, developing focused awareness and acceptance of our deepest feelings. When people are considered to be emotionally well people, they are able to express feelings freely, debate with integrity, along with managing those very same feelings effectively by taking a look within, what I like to call...."Putting the Mirror up to SELF". Emotional Wellness is a state of mind that is PRACTICED, it IS a constant process of individual change and personal growth. When your Emotional Wellness is balanced and in peak formation, you can maintain many different types of relationships, take on and deal with conflict, all the while remaining grounded in your spirit, even during stressful times. You are able to look at yourself and understand your greatness and your weakness....working to make weakness become a strength over time!
Here are some TIPS to practice and explore that enhance emotional wellness:
In closing, I will share some very LOVING words from my mother who always told me......"GOD loves YOU....so do not worry about the PEOPLE....When you fall down....get back up...kick the dust....then take your next step forward to LEARN, GROW AND PROSPER. Emotional Wellness follows when we take deliberate action!!

DID YOU KNOW.......MEDITATION QUIETS THE MIND NOISE??
In the LOVE month.....I just wanted to talk about why it is very important to have a daily Meditation time to love self! Meditation can be used very effectively to quiet all the racing thoughts....that mind noise that runs through our thoughts daily making us feel stress and anxiety. Everyday, we are bombarded with things we should be doing.....places we should be going.....status that we absolutely need to "get in where you fit in". Society has conditioned humans to believe that if you are not following the standards that they create......you are a FAILURE!! We know that is just not true......BUT...yet and still, we are constantly comparing ourselves to the unrealistic standards. This is where a Meditation Love Session can become your favorite buddy!!
Meditation is quieting the Mind Noise and allowing the brain to be still and take a break. It is not Prayer nor does it have anything to do with Religion. There is no better way to reduce stress, nervousness and anxiety than by having a daily Meditation Love Session. Meditation is a powerful tool that makes the racing thoughts come to a stop and not move the body into a stressful state of mind!! It is a relief of the mind that is so sweet that once you start doing it on a regular basis, you will wonder why you have not been doing it all along!! It is a way that you can start to give yourself the unconditional LOVE from the inside out. Here is just a really easy way to learn to have a Meditation Love Session with yourself:
1- Find a quiet space where you can have some time for yourself- all you need to start is 15 minutes a day.
2- Light a candle and some incense which is very helpful to focus your mind and calm the brain.
3- In your mind, call this time your Meditation Love Session-where you are going to pamper yourself with unconditional self love.
4- Stay focused on the candle and begin to build a reserve of love on the inside with conscious self care-It is very good for you!
5- Ask yourself the question....Am I breathing? Start focusing on breathing in thru your nose and out of your mouth-soft and easy. In the beginning your mind will fight you to keep spinning with thoughts, but just keep listening to yourself breathe and when the thoughts try to fly in....Ask yourself the question again. As your mind calms down you will be able to hear your breathing get louder because the mind noise is at rest.....that is how you know that you are quieting the mind noise.
6- Take some time while you are breathing to reflect of the things that you are Grateful for in your life while breathing in.
7- While you are exhaling thru your mouth-blow out all negativity that gets on your nerves each day.
8- Continue breathing in and out......watching the white light in the candle and smelling the incense. They are designed to keep you in the present moment.
9- Before closing out your Meditation Love Session- Reflect on what you are doing to become a powerful source of TRUE LOVE to yourself.
10- Close the Meditation Love Session by being thankful for the opportunity to be conscious about slowing your mind noise down, reducing your stress and taking the time to be in love with YOU!
BE GRATEFUL FOR YOU!!
