A Metaphysical view of Migraines

A Metaphysical view of Migraines
People who suffer from intense migraines often have poor personal boundaries. You don’t know when to say ‘Yes’ and when to say ‘No’. You often end up saying Yes when actually you want to say No. You end up in conflicting circumstances that you cannot escape from. You ask yourself “should I stay or should I go?"

 If you were given 7 out of 20 pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, it would be plain to see that you do not have all of the pieces to make up the picture.  In life, we become adept at gathering data as we go and trying to form analogies or patterns to make us feel comfortable in an uncomfortable (new) scenario. 

5 Steps for a Healthy Lifestyle

5 Steps for a Healthy Lifestyle
Whilst you’re still in holiday mode after a long, hot summer, wouldn’t this be a good time to take stock of your life and decide what could be changed to support a healthier lifestyle? Assessing your life is far easier whilst you’re relaxed so let’s look at 5 key points that could help you.

Sifting and Sorting

Sifting and Sorting
 As you and I both know, nothing stays the same; life appears to be one long continuum in the journey of the human race, even though it could actually be a spiral and some things do in fact get repeated.  But perhaps its time to alter our perception of Change - instead of it being something that we think is going to happen in the future, we could accept that it's actually happening most of the time ... as in Now!

E is for Emotions
Emotional energy works at a higher speed than thought.  This is because the feeling world operates at a higher rate than the mind.  We evaluate everything as we perceive it; we think about it afterwards ...

All Change

All Change
There’s nothing so scary as the deep end when you’re in it and wearing a blind-fold. And that’s what Change can feel like! You spend chunks of your life seeing the point of what you’re doing and where you’re going then something happens – internally or externally – to change your viewpoint and wham! - your familiar point of focus is gone to be replaced by a ball of great discomfort that’s wedged in your gut. So what to do?

B is for Bathing

B is for Bathing
Bathing is hugely underestimated for its usefulness as a health aid, yet its a great place to perform a weekly maintenance session.  A standard size bath is a great place to work on your skin with a flannel over the palm of your hand - toning, exfoliating and stimulating the largest excretory organ of the body.  

A is for Adrenals

A is for Adrenals
The Adrenal glands sit on top of each kidney and regulate many systems of the body, including our fight or flight responses. With frequent over stimulation, such as long term stress, the adrenals become exhausted and unable to contribute adequately or effectively to balancing the systems of the body.

Moods and Moons

Moods and Moons
Have you ever noticed that some days you get out of bed in a very dark mood, for no apparent reason.  Yet other days, you may awake feeling apprehensive or anxious, rather than the joyous mood you'd prefer as your norm.  Whilst plenty of people might be fairly stable in their moods, there is a good proportion of the population that are indeed susceptible to external influences that can and do affect their moods - not all of the time, but certainly some.

Dissolving habits and beliefs

Dissolving habits and beliefs
We all at some point adopt belief systems and habits that we perceive as useful in maintaining some sort of control in our lives.  Its usually much later that we begin to realise the things we thought made sense are actually a hinderance.  If we develop and increase an awareness of ourselves, we can use that awareness to confront old habits and beliefs and achieve small breakthroughs.

The interplay of body and emotions

Have you ever noticed how your stomach is easily affected by worry, so that your digestion seems to stop working and your food won't go down?  Or perhaps you keep getting throat problems when you are suppressing what you really want to say?  This is a common phenomena that we all recognise so let's take a look at how the 12 major meridians are associated with the major emotions.
