23 and 1/2 hours: What is the single best thing we can do for our health?

Not only a great illustration but a valid message too –

Have you heard of Tony Samara?

If not- take a look –

“I believe that we live at a very crucial moment in humanity’s transformation and I want you to move beyond the old paradigm and discover your power, your freedom.

I believe we are at a point of such transformation that we can no longer wait for someone else, or something else. I believe that we are creators and that everyone here is equal and part of that creation. I believe that God doesn’t live somewhere outside, that the Divine, meaning intelligence, freedom, is everywhere. You, me, we are connected.

I believe that we have to put things into practice. We can’t just sit and watch television or watch life, or watch a relationship and hope it gets better or wait for it to change.

I challenge you to step away from the sofa, where it is comfortable to watch TV, and to participate. It is a wonderful thing when we realize that we have this power, which is not of the ego, but is wisdom.”

Tony Samara

Self Empowerment by David Childerley….

My good friend Asare sent me this clip to view. I loved it. David is an amazing person with great perspective and he’s very logical. I have visited his website and signed up for newsletters and videoclips. I’ll keep you posted.

This clip is one of a whole series so it is worth doing a bit of digging and seeing what David has to say. I agreed with everything he says in this clip.

Thought for the Day……..

As usual from the Brahma Kumaris:

Happiness is a daily decision

And oh boy…………………have I realised this recently. Even people like me fall off track now and again. It’s only when I go back and see how much I have grown and what tools I have gathered along the way, that I realise that I am only human. Just because I am spiritually aware, doesnt mean I wont be touched by hardship and problems. I have re-learned to be happy and kind in these last few months – something I had come to forget as I began to get swallowed up in all of my problems. This is a superficial life – I am here to learn and evolve. I know that now.

Intuition In Action

 www.bkwsu.orgThe Secret To Understanding

Have you ever had a hunch that something was about to  happen and to your surprise, it did? 

Have you ever had ‘gut feelings’, a strong sense of ‘knowing’ that something was true without a specific reason but you ended up
being right?  That’s your intuition. 
  

No matter what it’s called, intuition plays a part in our lives everyday.  Your intuition ‘knows’ what you need and what to do.
  
Every single one of us has this inner resource, but most of us are cut off from listening to this inner guide.
 
Discover how to:
access your intuition, feel, hear and see intuitively
Follow your gut feeling with more confidence:
‘understand’ yourself and other people more accurately
develop it further for practical use in your everyday life and have fun  with it!

Date: 20/09/2009   4.30pm – 6.00pm

A Lesson In Life…………

I found this on www.indianchild.com. This site is full of some lovely quotes but I particularly liked this one and could relate to it:

A Lesson in Life

 

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, if they be events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere.  If someone hurts you, betrays you , or breaks you heart, forgive them. For they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to who you open your heart to.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them.

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again.

Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either.

You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it.

Another Great Piece by Mike George – RETURN TO THE CENTRE……

www.relax7.comSo much of this made sense to me. I am going to try Mike’s recommendation on living at the centre of the wheel. I hope I’m patient enough to see the results. I really support Mike’s work. The more I read, the more sense it all seems to make. I guess he is at the right level as a Teacher for me personally to learn. He is certainly thought provoking for me but with lots of agreement.

Here is an excerpt but as always…..

 Return to the Centre 

From the mysteries of time (last week) comes the conundrum of life. Do we journey through life or does life journey through us? Or both. Are you the driver or the hitchhiker? Or both. Are you the traveller or the witness? Or both. Are you on the stage or in the audience? Or both. Do YOU move or are you moved? Or neither!

Such questions have plagued the intellects of philosophers and mystics for centuries. Today, few of us have little time for such self-indulgent naval gazing reflections, (!) busy as we are with more important matters such as the price of a house, the latest score in the cricket and the weather for the weekend! And yet many of us often feel an ache in our soul which, when examined, reveals a desire to know the answers to such deep and profoundly significant questions, if perhaps phrased in slightly different ways.

If you do stop to look, to understand, to ‘stand under’ the idea of what it means to live, you may begin to sense all is not what it appears to be, all is not what you have been taught to see, all is not as real as you were led to believe.

Thought of the Day……….

From the Brahma Kumaris:

Take care of yourself with understanding and love, and make sure that you never compromise your own spiritual growth.

FREE TALK – So Many Choices…What To Do? London 9.8.09 @ 430pm

WWW.BKWSU.ORG

DECISION MAKING MADE EASY…

www.bkwsu.orgHaving a choice is better than not having a choice – agree?  But it becomes a drag when too many choices keep you from acting.
 
Too many choices and we: get confused; freeze and make no choice; make
the wrong choice; make the right choice but then question our decision.
 
Faced with choice overload we may find ourselves with decision fatigue.  We worry, because a world of possibilities can also be a world of missed opportunities!
 
Every day we make hundreds and thousands of decisions.  Despite it being a common activity, making decisions is actually quite difficult for most people.
 
Join us to discover tips on:
feeling less anxiety and have greater
satisfaction with whatever you choose
limiting the number of options
how to make decision-making easy

Words of Wisdom by Dadi Janki

Mantra from the Dalai Lama………

A lovely presentation from my special friend Lauren. I don’t get to see her that often but she is one of those friends who I know is always there. She is also beautiful inside and out. I like people like that! It would be very easy for her to be arrogant over how beautiful she is, but she isn’t like that. Her feet are firmly on the ground.

Here is the presentation. It has really nice pictures and words alike CLICK HERE.

And Another Fantastic Article from Mike George……..A New Enthusiasm

Here is another really good article from Mike George.

This is an excerpt but you can get the FULL ARTICLE HERE.

A New Enthusiasm

Many of us awaken each day in a different mood. Others find their mood swinging unpredictably and uncontrollably throughout the day. And some seem to become unchangingly stuck in a rut characterised by continuously dull feelings. Our moods obviously influence our level of enthusiasm towards tasks and people in particular, and towards our life in general. Yet we all know or have at least met someone who is almost constantly enthusiastic and wondered how on earth they maintain their consistently up-beat attitude to everything in their life. Sometimes we are inspired by their enthusiasm. And at other times, because it can be such a direct contrast to our own energy level, we find ourselves irritated and almost tired of being around such a bubbling energy. And yet, deep down there’s often a little voice that says, “I wish I could be like that, be as enthusiastic as them about … everything”.

All you need to do to get this FREE and lovely information is to go to Mike’s website and sign up for his newsletter.

Dadi Janki on Silence…

A Real Alternative To A Regular Chemist/Pharmacy…….

www.nutricentre.com

These guys have four parts to their business:

1. Resource Library and Bookshop – fabulous idea where anyone can go and do some research on the conditions they need.

2. The Shop“We are Europe’s leading centre for complementary medicine. If you’re looking for nutritional products, vitamins and minerals, herbal and holistic remedies, health supplements, books on treatments and therapies, or advice from some of the UK’s most eminent practitioners, you’re in the right place.”

This is a good store for you to pick up the alternative medicines you need. they also have affiliations with Tesco in the UK so they have a presence in lots of stores. See their website for details.

Yes they have some great products but their prices are a little high. Having said that there are a whole heap of products that are hard to find under one roof. Judge for yourself!

3.  Treatment Rooms– facilities to host leading practitioners in complimentary and natural health

4. Nutritionists – dedicated team offers a personalised service to customers. Also advice on all healthcare concerns. Plus the best bit – a free advice service for anyone on the phone – +44 208 752 8450. I am impressed by this service! 

www.nutricentre.com

All in all a very good idea and very much worth promoting. I don’t know what the treatment and nutritional advice costs are – lets hope they are not just for those who are well off and are actually affordable to the mainstream of people who also need these services. If anyone has had any experience with the Nutri Centre, I would be very interested to know more.
