The past six months have instilled anxiety, worry and fear into the entire county.

Fear causes chronic stress. Dealing with fear is the same as dealing with any other emotion. It begins with taking time to be aware of what we are feeling. Then ask if it is real or not. What is the worst thing that can happen?

Anxiety creates an acidic condition and is stored in the DNA. That emotion then becomes a predominant factor in our lives from that moment on. We know that stress affects physical organs and parts of the body. Generally, all physical unease (stress) has an underlying emotional aspect.

Challenging times can confront us at any time and often we are not prepared.  

We can be reminded that we live in a human body and the need for spiritual and self-care is of utmost importance. We cannot ignore the darkness that exists in the world right now. The best way forward is to focus more on the brightness we can bring to others, but only after we have cleared a path of lightness for ourselves. In these heavy, dark times of the pandemic, we get to focus on our inner self. The author of “Peaceful Warrior”, Dan Millman, said “to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of evolution we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation.”

Self-care is an essential component to vibrant health and vitality.

Many people believe their doctor is the only source of knowledge when it comes to treating or taking care of their physical conditions. Sometime the condition may require simple steps such as drinking more water or getting quality sleep.

Our bodies already know how to stay healthy. All we need is to be mindful and aware what our body is telling us. Messages come to us with signs, such as indigestion, diarrhea, itching, feeling tired, and other conditions and symptoms. We can tune into our body’s unique advice, with listening to the innate self. What thoughts continue to appear? What message is repeated?

To activate our innate wisdom:

Use quality pure essential oils to calm the mind and rejuvenate the spirit

Learn mind-body techniques such as meditation, relaxation exercises, and yoga

Take a walk outside in a garden, park, or woodland

Spend time with planting or digging in the soil

Watch more sunsets; nature is a great healer

Listen to the birds; watch a cocoon transform into a butterfly

Eat quality food and water and take time to relax while we eat

Clean up your diet by eliminating sugars and processed food

These simple actions can awaken and trigger personal power to connect to our inner consciousness (intuition) and healing energy. Take time to try several of these mindful actions to ease anxiety, worry and fear.
