Thanksgiving: Look at Your Life through Gratitude

Frosty Leaves and Rockwithquote

Thanksgiving is an invitation to take time to look at your life through the lens of gratitude.

Gratitude is more than saying “Thank you,” for what is in front of you in the moment. It is a way of seeing your life through the lens of shifting your awareness to what is being supportive as something is presented to you in your life. It’s important to take time to change your attitude to gratitude. Whether the situation is challenging, momentary, or on-going, the way you see what is happening, or take it in, directly affects how your body-mind field uses this information.

Your body-mind system takes in information rapidly, and sifts through what you are experiencing based on memory imprints and habits over time. The way your body-mind responds to incoming data changes your breath, posture, and how energy is communicated to all of your system through your thoughts, feelings and actions.

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. – W.T. Purkiser

The way you see the world is directly related to the quality of light you absorb with the quality of communication throughout your body-mind system. The neurochemistry of stress when processed through the filters of shame, anger, fear, or the residue of habitual messages learned earlier in life can take immense energy away from the opportunity of seeing the world in the present with potential for receiving new insight, or creating new neural pathways in your brain, your heart, and the rest of your body.

This, in turn, affects how you see the world, move through the world, and your health.

The work of the Institute of Heart Math in San Diego, California, has done volumes of research on the impact of thoughts and feelings of appreciation, gratitude, joy, and love on the entire body-mind system. The impact of shifting awareness from stress, fear, anger, and worry to an anchor image or thought of gratitude creates  greater functioning of the problem-solving brain, the immune system, and all the systems of the body for several hours.

Especially in world where there is ever-increasing demands and change, using a simple and elegant technology of shifting your awareness to appreciation and gratitude to be able to navigate next steps,is cause enough to feel relief and gratitude.

In David Steindl-Rast‘s TED Talk, he speaks of an effective way to call our thinking focus back to this purpose with “Stop. Look. Go,” a skill learned early in life when crossing any street or road for safety and well-being. Today you can use this to activate the life-enhancing impact of gratitude to create a greater sense of happiness, health and well-being.

Using this skill in a situation that demands stamina, a deep breath, or a letting go today can intervene to call you back into a life-energizing response to whatever life is handing you in the moment. Using this with what is directly in front of you, or calling on a memory of gratitude, appreciation, joy or love is as powerful. Making this a habit can be one of the most effective, long-term beneficial wellness and well-being practices you ever use for happiness.

Stop: Set up stop signs, notes, meditation or time-out’s within your life daily for a practice of noticing small things that support you. Bring more of what is life-enhancing into your life through healthy food, sound, light, movement, breath, fragrance and loving touch. Making space and time for yourself serves as an oasis for grounding and renewing. This provides the opportunity to recharge so that you can be more in the flow of life, connected to the source of what feeds your need for joy, love, and freedom. You, then, have more energy to take next steps for challenges, adventures, and growth. You also have more to offer to all your relationships.

Look: Expand your awareness of what is good about your life, your loved-ones, what they have taught you, what you have learned, and what is good about you. Take in color from nature, the fresh air, the soft sounds of water, the necessities that are taken care of in your life: electricity, running water, transportation, heat, food, etc. Take in the smiles you receive, the compliments, the web of life that supports you being here: from small to large. Get in touch with where in your life you would like to adjust or make change. Look with the eye of discernment.

Go: Allow this information to motivate your life, and to activate new possibilities. Smile back at life. Share your vision, ideas, thoughts, and feelings in ways that support positive growth and transformation. Translate this into meaning in your relationship with others. In this way the circle of gratitude creates greater happiness, and expands into the circle of life to create new possibilities for all.

How Destiny Influences Your Life Purpose

Resonance Repatterning® sessions work with a number of healing disciplines that create balance and harmony in your physical, emotional, mental and spirit levels. At this time of year, in fall, it is especially a good time to look at inspiration and letting go as it manifests in your life based on the Chinese Five Element and Meridian System. One of the primary questions asked at this time of year is “What is your purpose in life or in the world?” followed by “What do you need to let go of to experience your life purpose? Family Systems is also particularly suited for working with reclaiming and restoring love with a sense of harmonizing order that influences your own destiny and life purpose in the world.

What is Destiny?

From the perspective of Family Systems work developed by Bert Hellinger, your destiny is something that is personal. It is part of who you are as related to your parents, culture, language, and all of the groups with whom you coincide. According to this, you can only be as strong and experience the vital essence and power in your life if you agree with this. This means that you are aligned with the fact that you have the biological patterns from your parents and ancestors. You were brought up in a particular way with specific thoughts, beliefs and patterns that came directly from your family of origin.

Taking Information from Your Family System

In Family Systems work the purpose of this insight is to build awareness of the order in which you arrived into your own family system. It is important that you resonate with the fact that your parents are the “big ones” and you are the “little one,” not the other way around. In some families the difficulties and challenges of trauma, stress and disorder creates disharmony create non-coherent loyalties and disorder.

As an example, a child might take on the emotions that were repressed or not dealt with by the parent, assume reponsibility for their parent’s actions or relationship with their partner. In this case, a child might take on the burden of the parent by living out that emotion in their own life, limiting their ability to experience their full range of emotions, or live out the life-depleting or limiting pattern in their own relationship, business and community in their adult life.

Sessions work with Earlier Experiences that identify and shed light on the initial and original patterns that became imprinted. The effects of earlier experiences, trauma and unresolved emotions get translated into how you carry yourself through the world in the present. This is communicated in your posture, your breathing patterns, your eating habits, self care and regulation, your health and ability to connect to your sense of well-being and place in the world.

What You Have Learned

Taking your parents is more about becoming aware of these earlier patterns while developing a new way to show love and loyalty to your family of origin. This happens by becoming aware that each person has their own fate with all of its cultural, biological, belief systems, health issues, and choices. In sessions, I often refer to this process as opening a treasure box. Within this box are jewels, roses, as well as tacks and thorns. With acceptance of this as a reality, there can be  a willingness to work with all of the material as it is so that freedom and personal choice can emerge in a new way!

We can not change another person’s destiny. However, we can give back a person’s ability to respond to life based on that person’s own choices. This creates respect and dignity while freeing other people in your Family System including your to do the same thing in  each particular life.

 

Taking the Gift or Higher Lesson

The past has lessons that include gifts  and  higher teachings that allow you to develop your capacity to heal and serve. Many times in sessions we work with the question, What is the higher lesson or gift from this issue?” As each person answers this question for themselves, it becomes clear that purpose in their own life and in the world are integrally connected with their ancestral and family system’s content.

It is here that the potential for sharing this lesson can influence your life purpose so you can expand into the world. The circle of your family’s beliefs and constrictions from the past become tools for permission to then expand your circle, to explore life from the place of author-ship within. This process becomes one of both inspiration and letting go. Knowing that you are connected to your ancestors, you can learn from them, and expand on that learning.

This knowledge is sacred, and it is what both challenges and sustains you. At the same time, it is the capacity to explore the world with new eyes and ways of being that allows you to move out into the world with your inner gifts. Doing so is based on working with what you have learned over time, all your own trials, tribulations, triumphs and lessons. By doing so, you give voice and wisdom from your destiny in your expression of your life purpose in the world!

Invitation to Breathe~Free Repatterning

This month as we continue the journey through fall, the invitation is to look at inspiration and letting go. This is exemplified most directly through your breath process. Breathing in you take in life energy to inspire you in all that you do and feel. Breathing out you let go of that which is not needed in your body-mind system as just one of the magnificent processes you are automatically involved in every second of your life.
For this reason, it is important to look at where your breathing cycle might be stuck, interrupted or blocked so that you can restore the natural breathing cycle to breathe~ free by repatterning your life for greater vitality and nourishment today for your wellness and well-being!

The Beginning Breath Cycle

Entry into the physical world through the birth process influences your breath patterns of taking nurture from your mother while in the process of integrating the new environment you have entered. When there is a traumatic birth, or the infant is removed too soon from in utero connection or nourishment, there can be long-term negative effects related to breathing patterns that show up as issues related to shock, pain and fear. Physically, this might show up as long term challenges with asthma, smoking in order to try to take a breath, or over stimulation through sports activity in attempt to fully fill your lungs.

Impact of Trauma on Your Breathing

The natural in and outflow of breath within your body is directly associated with your feelings. The way you breathe gives you feedback on how you are experiencing life and your emotions. This can be in response to an event, communication or situation in your present, or the effects of unresolved trauma and shock from your birth process, or in your life from the past. This shows up as an ongoing stress response that shows up in your body-mind system through your breath patterns.

Becoming aware of where you continuously hold your breath, breathe in shallowly, or  breathe out excessively like sighing gives you a read-out on how you receive and integrate vital life energy from the air you breathe in. This has an impact on both the quality of life energy you have for your body-mind system, and also directly affects how you respond to daily challenges and stress. Your breathing patterns impact how you feel in response to stress, and influences  your ability to relax including your ability to let go of negative issues impacting your view of life.

By resolving and updating your life-depleting breath patterns you will notice a positive change in your life in your mood and physical energy. This, in turn, benefits you in orienting you towards life-energizing choices by creating more vital energy for your positive intentions.

Thich Nhat Hanh Mindful Breathing Meditations

“Because you are breathing in, it is a miracle. You are celebrating that you are alive.”~Thich Nhat Hanh

This is your invitation to identify what your body-mind system in reporting through your breathing patterns. Resonance Repatterning® works with identifying and transforming patterns embedded in your unconscious body-mind system stored in your Nervous System to resolve pre-natal, birth process and life-depleting traumatic experiences. Your body is designed for self-healing. It is designed for success. This repatterning is designed to allow you to move on from limiting breath cycles so you can breathe free!

Natural Healing Ways to Treat a Cold

Chinese Five Element and Meridian Wheel

Having a cold this time of year or any time of year is no fun. The change from summer to fall not only creates change in temperature, but also affects what you body needs in this transition into the cooler months.  Because Resonance Repatterning ® includes the Chinese Five Element and Meridian System, this article will explore natural healing ways from the Five Element perspective as well as natural nutritional and alternative medicine suggestions.

  The Chinese Five Element Wheel relates to other Elements also. Earth Element feeds Metal Element with nurture and support from stomach and spleen. When Earth Element is involved, the questions you might ask are: ” Where do I need support in my life or feel  from my center?” and ” How can I improve the quality of nourishment I take into my body-mind system?”  A cold many times is a signal from the body that it needs rest and care in the face of overwork, stress and inability to acknowledge the body’s signals to slow down and do some self-care.  Taking time to take care of yourself is important to your overall wellness and well-being.

When Metal Element is overactive, it may be a signal to balance with Fire Element.  This can be a call for more lightness, joy, love and connection with others.  Questions to ask yourself: “Where have I lost connection with my family, friends and groups?”  “What can I do to bring in more joy into my life?” ” Where am I receiving criticism from self or others?” ” Am I over-analyzing things?”

Nutritional and Alternative Medicine Support
1. Go  more alkaline than acidic. 
This means decrease meat, grains and dairy, and increase your intake of vegetables. Decrease milk products because they increase mucus production and inflammation.

2. Drink more fluids. Choose at least eight glasses daily of water, herbal, white or green tea, as well as natural fruit and vegetable juices to clear your lungs and intestines.

3. Get enough sleep. Rest is a way to revitalize, nurture yourself and heal.

4. Get out your stockpot and make a bone or astragulus broth. A bone broth has nourishing minerals, gelatin to help with digestion and amino acids to support the immune system.  A broth with a few astragalus sticks thrown in will strengthen your immune system’s response for chronic issues. Be sure to take the sticks out of the broth before use. More on hwo to cook with astragalus here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/232639136985259281/

5. Get more Vitamin C. Eat cantaloupe, bell peppers, citrus, pineapple, and black cherries. Purchase products like Emergen-C and Airborne to keep handy in your kitchen or medicine cabinet when you feel a cold coming on.

6. Drink honey, lemon and ginger tea: 
Start by putting  1 Tbsp. grated ginger in a teapot or medium bowl. Pour 1 cup boiling water over it and let it steep for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, put 1 Tbsp. lemon juice and 1 Tbsp. honey in a large cup. Strain ginger tea into the cup. Finally, stir, and taste.

7. Decrease and avoid alcohol and sugar to balance your cellular communication for greater harmony.

8. Use these acupressure points:
a) For coughing, start by crossing your arms. Then push your thumbs into the inside of your elbows while    holding the opposite arms.
b) Do the same at your shoulders, pressing under and into your arm pits.
c) For sinus and congestion, give two finger support to the area between your thumb and forefinger. Press firmly, first on one hand, and then the other. Do this for a few moments each.                                                                      d) Press your fingers into the skin on each side of your nostrils to bring relief from sneezing and sniffles.                         e) For Immune System support, tap on your sternum, about 2 inches down from where your left and right collar bone connect. This activates the thymus which is closely associated with the immune system.

9.  Use herbs and aromatherapy of eucalyptus or tea tree oil help to clear your sinuses. Herbs that are especially good for clearing and healing your respiratory system include thyme, sage, oregano, rosemary, hyssop and lemon balm.  These herbs can be incorporated into your cooking, used in steams, and made into teas.

These essential oils  will clear your sinus and support the healing process.  Eucalyptus and tea tree oil can also be healing allies for respiratory and sinus issues.  As an example, place some eucalyptus oil on a cotton swab. Put the cotton in an old pill bottle. Open the bottle and inhale the scent when you feel congested. You can also keep a tissue with a few drops of these oils with you, or diffuse these oils into your environment.

 

For preventive measures, use Be-Well Essential Oil Blend to protect yourself when in environment where others have a cold. Use this healing and convenient blend of oils when you travel by simply putting a few drops on your wrists and behind your ears.

You can purchase this beneficial healing blend here: http://www.windowstotheheart.net/be-well-essential-oil-blend/

 

10. Supplements and Remedies: Explore with a health practitioner what works for you.

Echinacea and Oregon Grape Root support the healing process with colds, coughs and congestion. Vitamin A, D3,  zinc, and antithetic acid are also reported for their healing benefits. Sambucol or elderberries are loaded with bio-flavonoids and Vitamin C. Aconite, a homeopathic remedy, is a healing remedy for fatigue and strengthens the immune system.
