Harness your Gifts for Wellness.

3 Steps to Harness your Gifts for Wellness.

 

Often we humans get strongly attached to the outcomes we desire in life and if these do not meet our expectations we tend to get deeply disappointed. Focusing constantly on these feelings of disappointment we begin to sow seeds of Unwellness!

If you have felt that way, consider taking these 3 steps that will shift your view point and harness the power of your gifts to make roads for your Wellness.

 

1. Finding your Gifts

Expand your vision, look at yourself and what surrounds you. You will soon find you have been blessed with countless gifts that you were not even aware of or have taken for granted… and that life itself is a gift!

You have the miraculous gift of a self regulatory body. A heart that constantly beats itself… A digestive process that works to provide nourishment from the food that nature provides … Breath that provides you with life and countless other automated processes that give you the gift of livingness and human experience on Earth.

You will find you are surrounded with an abundance of gifts from Nature! The Sun that gives our days Light, warmth, nutrients, cheer… The Earth that houses us, grounds us, shelters innumerable other creatures and forms of life, grows infinite variety of trees, plants, herbs, vegetables, fruits that provide us with healthy and tasty feasts, nourishment, healing colours, herbs and sounds. The Atmosphere, seas and forests that provide us with healthy frequencies and rich ions. The life giving air we breathe, the water we drink, the darkness of night so we can recuperate…

 

2. Appreciate your Gifts

Once you awaken to the presence of these rich gifts, you will never take them for granted or abandon them. Let us not come to this realisation once we are unwell, for Wellness itself is a gift ! Take time to appreciate the gifts life gives and what they bring to you…  We are sentient Beings and have the unique gift to feel and experience.. Linger in the morning rays of the sun, watch the amazing colours of the sunset, the calm moonlight, the twinkling of stars in the vast sky, the aroma and colour of flowers, the amazing shapes and tastes of varied plants and fruits, feel grateful for them and remain in a state of awe for this bounty!

 

3. Focus on the feelings of Gratitude

Learn to repeatedly focus on your gifts, the feelings of gratitude and the state of awe they bring. Focusing on the feelings of Gratitude brings joy to the heart, triggers the release of  healing chemicals by the body laying strong grounds for your Wellness!

Inspired by the writings in the Sikh holy Scriptures of Guru Granth Sahib

Prescriptions for Your Wellness.

 

Valuable Prescriptions to Share

As the New Year dawned I recalled some valuable ‘Prescriptions from Heaven’  which I am sharing with you and hope their application will enrich your Wellness Lifestyle!

 

  • Reflect on your previous year with gratitude, before raising the sail and setting the course for your new year.

 

  • Rather than thinking about your activities, think about the space in between those activities.
    To sustain a steady rhythm in your life, focus on the space between the beats.

 

  • When you aren’t sure what action to take, it might be better to take no action and to observe. The best way to understand your world, is to be still And observe.

 

  • The more you focus on what you love, the more love you experience.

 

  • Notice what happens when you fall in love with who you are, and what makes you uniquely special. 

 

  • Give your doubts a rest, so more positive voices can inspire you.

 

  • Focus on your strengths and let them carry you beyond your weaknesses.

 

  • When you hear yourself begin to complain, do this,Turn your complaint into a lesson… and then manifest something beautiful out of the lesson.

Wishing you a wonderful Year filled with Love, Light and Joyful Wellness !

6 Key Factors that Enhance the Functioning of Our Body.

 

Key factors that enhance the Functioning of our body:

The well-being of our body is directly related to allowing its natural rhythms to function harmoniously and the key factors that enhance this is what I have coined as :

“The 6 R’s”

  1. Regularity of Schedule, eating, sleeping at regular times and avoiding drastic changes in diet and activity
  2. Resting quietly for short periods once or twice a day so it can reset itself
  3. Removing or reducing swiftly any stressful or high risk situations
  4. Restoring order in all aspects of your life without getting distracted
  5. Retaining your calm and addressing any underlying emotions that reduce joy
  6. Remembering that Life is a game and being emotionally resilient!

A Priceless Gift.

 

Give Yourself a Priceless Gift – the Gift of Friendship!

 

I recently saw the movie ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ mainly for its delightful visuals and was wonderfully surprised at the heart warming message it conveyed about the invaluable gift of Family and Friendship!

 

The greatest Treasures are not gold, nor jewels, nor works of art

They can not be held in your hands, they are held within your heart

For worldly things will fade away as seasons come and go

But the treasure of true friendship will never lose its glow…

 

 

A Nation's Secret to Happiness?

 

Could this be The Secret to the High Score of Gross National Happiness in Bhutan?

 

In the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, where contentment supposedly reigns and sorrow is denied entry, it’s people are expected to think about death 5 times a day. That is remarkably surprising especially for a culture that is equated to Happiness. Not necessarily, a recent research suggests that by thinking of death so often, the Bhutanese may be onto something!

 

Study by University of Kentucky Students

A study conducted at the University of Kentucky in 2007 on two groups of students, by Nathan DeWall and Roy Baumesiter, where one group was instructed to contemplate their own death and the other a painful visit to the dentist concluded that death is a psychological threatening fact but when people contemplate it, they automatically begin to search for happy thoughts.

Linda Leaming, author of  ‘A Field Guide To Happiness’ a book on Bhutan, wrote ” I realized thinking about death doesn’t depress me. It makes me seize the moment and see things I might not ordinarily see ” She writes, ” My best advice: Go there, Think the unthinkable ”

One of the explanations is the country’s deep Buddhist beliefs, especially that of reincarnation. When you know life will continue again, you are less likely to fear the end of this particular one. Buddhists, like many other Eastern religions, compare dying to discarding of old, worn out clothes. This isn’t to say Buddhists don’t experience fear or sadness. They do. But they don’t flee from their emotions.

 

To this I will add a quote by Jim Rohn,

“Happiness is not something you postpone for the Future; it is something you design for the Present”

 

To your creation of joy and happiness,

Dr Simi
