9 Fundamentals of Forgiveness: The Keys to Greater Peace and Happiness

There are times in life when you are walking uphill, lugging the unresolved baggage of your past. It’s hard to see clearly what is behind you and what issues you are carry inside, not to mention how to resolve them. Although you may feel the profound emptiness of not forgiving yourself, you still just can’t let go.

Eight Self-Care Tips

When you are experiencing depression, it is always important to first talk with your health care practitioner to rule out strictly physical causes. Autoimmune diseases, thyroid problems, menopause, hormone imbalances, and many other conditions — as well as some prescription medications – can cause depression as a side effect. Your health care practitioner can also determine if what you are experiencing is “dysthymia” — which is more of a temporary depressed mood — versus a more significant clinical depression that would warrant further investigation.

But if you are feeling slightly down, here are some basic self-care tips that may help you get back on track.

RELAXATION

The calming phase of the meditation begins. It deeply relaxes muscle tension, and winds down the nervous system, while diminishing significantly pent-up stress and worry. Relaxation quiets the mind, soothes your emotional body and promotes a positive outlook. 

NEUROTRANSMITTERS

The greatest benefit of deep relaxation is that it actually engages your neurotransmitters, releasing serotonin which neutralizes hyperactivity and anxiety, while regulating depression, mood swings and replenishing energy levels depleted by prescription drugs, caffeine, and poor nutrition. Relaxation also releases melatonin for quality sleep.

Meditation boosts GABA and dopamine. GABA acts like a sedative and has a natural calming effect that subdues anxiety. Dopamine positively influences memory issues such as focus, mind fog and forgetfulness. Dopamine is like a natural high that lifts your spirits. It also stimulates motivation, will and desire. 

Low levels of neurotransmitters are symptomatic of a hypothyroidism. Meditation has the effect of regulating and balancing neurotransmitter levels because it brings the mind-body-spirit into a state of harmony and well-being, both necessary to sustain a healthy thyroid function.

PSYCHIC TENSION RELEASE

Next you will be guided to eliminate pent up negative psychic tension and congestion. This phase focuses on releasing sadness, frustration, fear, anger, and resentment so that the physical, mental, and emotional components are not at odds with one another. This allows you to experience inner peace, and with regular practice you can create a reliable sense-memory trigger to promote peace of mind, support well-being and move into healing.

MIRACLE GROW

As you settle into a state of peace, you will effortlessly glide into deeper levels of your subconscious mind. Your Subconscious mind is a storehouse of endless healing power. It is a fertile field where beliefs are sown and miracles are grown. It controls and regulates your entire psyche, all bodily functions, and most importantly the endocrine gland system itself. The subconscious mind operates from belief and whatever you believe, it will manifest that as your reality.

ALIGNMENT

While in the subconscious state, you’ll align all three levels of mind, conscious, subconscious and super conscious so they are working simultaneously in concert with each other. This alignment is extremely powerful. It is the foundation of the mind-body-spirit connection and the core principals of Holistic Healing.  Read the interview here

THE EMOTIONAL ROOT CAUSE

All symptoms of thyroid dysfunction point to the underlying emotional root cause which is shame, and unworthiness and their impact on stifling the voice. http://hypothyroidmom.com/thyroid-meditation/ To change any belief, you must do it from a subconscious level. The Conscious mind is your will to choose and your intent to change. The Subconscious mind holds the power to believe that you can change. The Superconscious mind provides the spiritual power or will to promote self-reliance as you complete the change.

ADRENAL SUPPORT

You’ll then move to adrenal glands. Adrenal burnout has a very negative effect on healthy thyroid function as well as the brain. The excessive amounts of cortisol released due to fear and it’s fight / flight trigger causes stress and weakens the immune function. A simple and effective method is given to revitalize your adrenals glands along with positive affirmations to build confidence and trust in yourself.

IMMUNE FUNCTION

The thymus gland regulates the immune function although 70% of your immune system is in the gastrointestinal track. A strong immune system is vital for healthy thyroid metabolism. An unhealthy diet, digestive disorders, and poor absorption of nutrients all impact the thyroid function which converts food into energy.  A simple method is given to stimulate the thymus gland along with self-empowering affirmations to promote courage, strength and t-cell production.

THE LOVE HORMONE

The calming effect of meditation releases the love hormone, oxytocin, which reduces stress levels while relieving depression and anxiety. Oxytocin fosters euphoric feelings of contentment, intimacy, and security. 

INNER PEACE and FORGIVENESS

Inner peace is vital for thyroid balance as is making peace with your thyroid condition. Liberating affirmations to own your voice, promote self-worth and reclaim your power will help you to invigorate your thyroid function.

HORMONAL BALANCE

Finally, stimulating the pituitary gland, the master gland of the endocrine system, will orchestrate the realignment of all glands to function harmoniously and restore equilibrium. Then you will experience the empowering, self-healing effects of Thyroid Meditation.

The Ultimate Deep Sleep Experience

Are you always feeling tired, sometimes wired and most often uninspired? 

THE IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP

Over 60 million Americans suffer from some form of insomnia or experience restless nights. Sleep deprivation is a living nightmare! Overtime, it can significantly weaken your immune system with serious consequences to your health that can lead to habitual sleeplessness, high blood pressure, and arrhythmia.

LACK OF SLEEP

Lack of sleep increases stress levels and decreases your energy, endurance and resilience. Stress and anxiety upset the adrenal function, which over-produces cortisol, and adrenaline and sends your hormonal system on the dreaded rollercoaster ride. Excessive cortisol reeks havoc on your thyroid gland and its function to regulate metabolism, breakdown fats and convert food into revitalizing energy. A dysfunctional Thyroid gland results in fatigue and lethargy which create sugar cravings that lead to unwanted weight gain.

Weight Loss: Are You in the Right Frame of Mind?

If you are struggling with extra weight, you may be self-critical, and have a running commentary of negative thoughts going through your mind about yourself and your body. No matter what sort of weight loss approach you’re planning to take — or trying to follow — one of the most important aspects of success is to make the mental shift from a negative perspective to a positive one.

The most important aspect is how you talk to yourself about your body. Your body is NOT your mind. They are connected, but they are not the same. Start thinking about your body as if it were a beloved friend or child. The next time a negative thought – “I’m so fat” or “I hate my thighs” or “I’m such a pig” comes into your mind, say out loud “STOP!” Then, consider whether you would ever say something like that to someone you loved who was trying to lose weight. Then, reframe the statement to a positive one, in the caring, supportive way you would talk to someone else. For example, “I am beautiful, and am working on being healthier and slimmer.” “My body does amazing things every day, and I’m going to help it become even more amazing.
