Time for your “physical” using the Holistic Health Approach!
So, for each part of your physical, you’ve got links to articles and videos you can educate yourself with and ensure your holistic wellness is tip-top!
Relax, Dr. Long Fingers will be along shortly…this won’t hurt a bit…
Having a holistic health check up is somewhat different from having a physical by a healthcare provider when your pulse is taken and a tongue depressor is stuck inside your mouth. Holistic care involves evaluating and nurturing all aspects of our bodies, not the physical body alone.
Here are important questions for you to ask yourself and also to use as a guide enabling you to evaluate how in-balance your mind-body-spirit is. Included are some wellness resource links that offer avenues you can take and tools you can use to help to align yourself with optimal wellness.
1) Are Your Chakras in Alignment?
Our chakras are our energy centers (vortexes) that are the openings for life energy to flow through. When they are blocked or closed we are functioning at a lower level than is desirable.
2) Are You Breathing Properly? Say Ahhhh!
Probably one of the most common mistake people make is withholding breath. There are far too many shallow breathers on the planet. Training yourself how to breathe properly is very important!
3) Are Your Aura Colors Glowing Brightly or Murkish Gray?
Our auras are like magnets picking up vibrational energies that are floating around everywhere we go. It is important to cleanse our auras frequently to free them of foreign vibrations and negative energies.
4) How Deeply Rooted Are You?
When our spirits choose to incarnate into a human body it is understood that we are to respect and honor this outer garment we wear. There is much information and learning that can be accessed from our Earth energies when we grow our roots. Dig in and reach downward!
5) Are You Staying Within Your Own Energetic Boundaries?
You will experience conflict within your “self” if you become confused by merging your own energies with energies of others. Make sure the emotions you are feeling belong to you.
6) Are You Tending To Your Physical Needs?
I should stop bringing ups new topics and build this section of our blog as it is completely near and dear to mine and Karin’s hearts. We avidly workout and eat well, and it has impacted our lives in so many ways.
Fitness and nutrition have been a huge part of my life-off an on since I went to college and got my hands on the Gold’s Gym Training Encyclopedia. The fundamentals I learned from that book are largely still applicable today. And I still do those basic exercises every time I workout!
Sadly, as I was going through our blog to link to some fitness and nutrition articles I found I hadn’t written any! So, I will be building a thorough library on this area. There is so much mis-information, complicated this and that’s.
I guarantee we will help you sift this plethora of garbage information and get to the meat and potatoes of eating right and exercising, no matter your fitness level, age, or condition! First lesson: “Diet” is a word that no longer exists…
7) Do You Allow Yourself Time/Space To Recoup Spent Energies?
It is far too easy to get wrapped up in day-to-day tasks and responsibilities, forgetting to take care of yourself. Choose from a variety of practices that can easily be incorporated a few minutes each day to bring about inner peace and contentment. Here are a few suggestions.
- Meditation-(The Fundamentals)
- Guided Meditation Audio
- Self-Meditation Audio
- Journal Keeping
- Creating a Sacred Space-Think Feng Shui Only Simplify It For You!
- Here’s Some Peaceful Music For Your Sacred Space
Obviously this physical would never supersede any medical treatments you are currently undergoing. But I guarantee you one thing, apply these principles with 100% commitment, you might be surprised the next time you go for an actual physical.
The changes will startle you! (just one example for myself: my bp when I started this new journey in December of 2012 was 158/110! I just had it checked on Monday: 11/80!
Using the list 1-7 above, make a questionnaire for yourself, then put a check mark next to each topic as to whether you take an active role in that wellness function or not. Avoid the last box! The graphic is there for you to ponder, not to extend any negative energy field to you whatsoever. We learn TWICE AS MUCH when we SEE as we do when we HEAR!
The path to Holistic Wellness starts and ends right at the edge of your big toe. Take the first step and work through your physical and strive to incorporate as many of these principles as you can each and everyday. And if you are actively involved in your own holistic health, way to go! Now go find someone to share your wellness with. Your body will thank you, your mind will thank you, your soul will thank you, and if you reach out to someone else, THEY will thank you!
