Is There Any Good Left In The World?
As we head to the close of yet another year, we celebrate our accomplishments and plan for future successes with the hope that a new year brings.
The truth is that we might have been on the brink of nuclear destruction several times this year.
Global warming and the world political scene is in crisis mode. Basically every movie with an “end of the world scenario” is playing out in real time before our eyes.
Fear is running the show and that is just too much for our psyche to handle, so we shut down.
When overloaded we go into survival mode (fight or flight). We look for safety and certainty and tend to contract.
Every day, we are bombarded with so much negative information, it has sucked the joy out of life, causing us to reach saturation and enter a zombie-like state. Energetically and consciously, we go into a lower vibration; auto-pilot; a form of waking sleep.
All life has vibrational frequencies; even the Earth has its own unique vibration.
What does being in a low vibrational frequency look and feel like?
Focusing only on work, rushing from one activity to the next, piling on more and more, numbing out with our electronics, binge watching T.V., not sleeping well, feeling like we can’t catch up and there is never enough time.
Obligation, overwhelm and general dissatisfaction.
In these states we tend to make poor decisions about our future, and even worse, we may not recognize an opportunity to make our life better.
It’s not that we don’t know what we need to do, when we are in a negative spin (low vibration), we just can’t get positive enough (higher vibration) to believe we will get out, so we stay stuck.
This is because our whole self is affected, all the way to our nervous system.
One of the big consequences is health; we experience fatigue, fuzzy thinking or memory loss, poor sleep, headaches, poor digestion, recurring colds or sinus infections, tight neck and shoulders, and mild depression….functioning, but not well.
These are signs of being in a low vibrational frequency, and we NEED TO GET OUT OF IT.
What does functioning at a higher vibrational frequency look and feel like?
It’s an awareness of the beauty around us, of our evolving life experience, and what we share with others. It is expansion, curiosity and gratitude.
We have energy and mental clarity, emotional calm, optimism, creativity and happiness. We feel alive and well, connected to all that is, in our greatest state of health, vitality.
It’s awareness of our thoughts, emotions and attitude, the choices we make, and we are responsible for our well-being, and not victims of circumstance.
It is awakening to our unlimited potential.
If you’ve had that feeling like there is nothing good left, or to look forward to, that is a sign energetically that you have been living in a lower vibrational state.
What is the solution?
RAISING YOUR VIBRATIONAL FREQUENCY.
The ancient Chinese practiced self cultivation to improve their health and longevity. It was crucial to address the whole person, physically, energetically, emotionally and spiritually.
There were 8 practices the ancients would utilize to achieve optimal levels of health: acupuncture, herbal medicine, bodywork, dietary, exercise, meditation, feng shui and cosmology.
- Be mindful of the information you’re exposed to.
Especially when reading, listening to and watching the news.
- Practice being present for several minutes a day.
Notice your thoughts and feelings. Do they tend to be negative? Release them.
- It may seem cheesy but find inspirational quotes and post them where you can see them daily.
- Connect with people in person and agree to put your phones away.
- Listen to music that makes you feel happy. Dance!
- Practice saying “no”. People can be toxic too…especially around the holidays, where you may feel obligated to spend time with people you don’t like or who drain your energy.
- Notice the beauty in everything.
You are not alone and the whole world is supporting you on your journey.
- Nurture your health, eat fresh and healthy foods, and drink plenty of water.
Your attitude and mindset are a representation of how you navigate the world physically, energetically, emotionally and spiritually.
Commit to being the best version of yourself, and take action to address your whole health daily, not waiting until you’re sick and in pain.
Make it a priority, make it a habit.
Now, more than ever, is the time to commit to your health and well-being, and the new year means you have the opportunity to become the best version of yourself.
Imagine what it would feel like to be more energized, motivated, and inspired.
What would your life be like if you tapped into your unlimited potential?
