Seasons

Which season brings you which health imbalance ?

We are in Spring and people are sneezing everywhere. Take note to clean the liver at this point. Eat baby greens and berries as they are what is coming on board. Learn the benefits to dandelion greens and foods that the liver loves. It has been serving you and it is the season to give thanks back to that organ.

Spring- allergies, tiredness, asthma, skin rashes, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, and a lack of rest, frustrations, arrogance

Summer-
allergies, asthma, eczema, over heating and over sweating, colds, flu, frustrations, anger, disappointment

Fall- allergies, sinus infections, asthma, colds, depression

Winter-allergies, colds, flu, bronual disorders, depression, sadness, asthma,

Just some bit to ponder for your day...

I started this blog to get out of my head ideas and information that i have on products, food choices, thought choices and actions i want the world to know. I would love to talk about the cosmic soul that taught me most of what i will share but not yet.
I will start out with products that you can buy from www.tothepointshiatsu.net that i have come to respect and appreciate that are here on this planet and that the formulators and there families are here for the long haul. The ideals are high and that is what i have been taught to seek.

Unit 9 -My plan that applies concepts I have learned regarding holistic/integral health to help foster growth and health spiritually, physically, and psychologically in my personal life.


    Introduction:    Why is it important for health and wellness professionals to develop psychologically, spiritually and physically? What areas do you need to develop to achieve the goals you have for yourself?
As a practitioner of health and wellness is a necessity to be as developed as you possibly can in the areas of psychology, spiritually and physically.  Each one of these areas has a purpose.  Each one of these areas is a small part of the whole.  It is the whole body that is the goal to balance. That each one of the words listed above (we will title PSP) is a level of the body.  If anyone is absent than the others will suffer.  This is not an area where we are talking arms, like as if one of your arms is weak or damaged in some way that the other can pick up the slack a bit.  PSP are all each their own and need their own strength and growth. When each one of the areas is developed well your own health will be the mirror of it.  You will then reflect health and wisdom. Your emotions will be calm and reserved. Your actions will be thought out and carefully placed and above all you will have a greater sense of knowing.
I myself need to work on the physical side of me.  I am a mature woman and can feel time sneaking up on me. It is important that I age with grace. It is important for me to represent health to my children most specially my oldest daughter.  She has fought the common sense of eating well and thinking soundly.  She has been against many ways I have handled things because I have not used religion.  That I stepped away from the God above and found that higher power resides in me and has been there my entire life.  I hold the power to heal, and take responsibility for every single action I do or, that happens to me.  I answer to my health.  If I am getting it right my health will show it.  If I am getting it wrong (whatever it may be) my health will show it. I do not pray for patience I look into myself and see what is wrong.  Is it my diet, life style, environment, what am I doing that is creating the imbalance.  If all is good and “sound” than I am getting an “A” in the classroom of life.

    Assessment:  How have you assessed your health in each domain? How do you score your wellness spiritually, physically, and psychologically?
As a heal care practitioner I judge myself very harshly.  I always look at each of the three areas, Physical, Spiritual and Psychological as being a part of a harmony as my fingers are to my hand, that without any one of the three, the table losses a leg, so to say.
My weakest area is my Physical side. This is an area that I must be very disciplined in and have not been for a little bit from a separation that happen in April.  I can easily feel a deficiency in my blood and an excess in my liver.  Emotions can really destroy.  Well being aware if half the battle.
If I were to score this area of physical,  I would give myself a 6 with 1 being the worst and 10 being optimal.
As to Spiritual and Psychological these I would give them both a high eight.  There is always room to grow.  I figure the day I can bend a spoon by just thinking it will be the day I can give myself a 10.
  
 Goal development:  List at least one goal you have for yourself in each area, Physical, Psychological (mental health) and Spiritual.
My personal goals that I would like to increase in the areas of Physical, Psychological (mental health) and Spiritual well-being are-
Physical- I would like to rebuild my immune system, clean out my large intestine and liver. 
Nourish my liver and kidney blood which in-turn should as well, strengthen my teeth.
Psychological – Here I need to learn to not be so sensitive. To not take things so personal, that even though the level of care that I have is higher than everyone I know, except one person, (and I just let that person go from my life) that I need to remember each and every person has a life of information in their head that they use to make every decision that they do.  
I have been sad and angry for a long time and know why.  I am working very hard on that and believe I have chiseled away a good 80% with the help of techniques I have learned in the class of, Psychological and Spiritual Aspects of Healing.
Last but sure by no means the least, is Spiritual.  This area needs no addressing.  This area is doing very well and as a matter of fact when I reach my physical goal, this area is going to sharpen like a razor blade. This area already scares me with things I become aware of.  Things like seeing a small girl in a friend I have, a girl of about thirteen.  This girl looked over-whelmed with burden and not happy at all.  Like as if she had the weight of the whole world on her shoulders.  I told my friend what I saw in her one day and she almost broke into tears.  She said when she was very young like thirteen that her mother was very ill and she had do everything while her mother lay in bed to try to get well.


 

  Practices for personal health:  What strategies can you implement to foster growth in each of the following domains; Physical, Psychological, and Spiritual. Provide at least two examples of exercises or practices in each domain. Explain how you will implement each example.
In each of the different domains I have found different techniques to implement in fostering growth.  As to keeping the physical growing, i started tai chi up again. As I learn this practice of different slow moves I will be incorporating it into my everyday life.
1)      In the spiritual department I have started every day to take time out to just sit and be quiet. I have allowed my mind to open and, to open to the possibilities of all things and everything, to never close my spiritual thoughts to possibilities.  To remember that we do not know, so we can never say we know and if you think you do know something on a topic then you are wise.  I look for the spirit in nature and in the nature of all things.  Just the other day I drove an extra 6 miles to get myself back to a small turtle that looked as if it was going to cross the road.  Once I arrived and could see the turtle clearer (I got out of my car) to move it’s seemingly direction, back toward the grasses, I said to it, you trying to cool off?  At the same moment to see fluid had come out from its mouth and there I noticed it was dead.  However, even being dead and being something very special I still picked it up and moved it into the grasses where it (to me) could have its dignity and lay to rest in the  environment that it belonged.
2)      The second strategy to increase and to keep growing in my spiritual world is to keep my health as clean as possible because if the health is sound than the mind will follow.  It is as simple as that.

In the Psychological department the two ways I will foster to continue to grow in this area is again, clean my health up as much as I have the power to.  A sound body allows the mind to go to other things.  If you are ill the thinking is how to get better or if the illness is not something disabling the illness does not allow the body to really open and be free.  I will continue to read the works of great writers that will enhance and stretch my mind, to continue to think and ask questions and learn all possibilities of all things.  The open mind is a large key here for me.
Now for the Physical, I will continue my tai chi and my work hard on incorporating more walking. I have added stretching and receiving massages to increase blood flow and warm the joints to assist in better movement. I will as well keep my mind physically active toward the direction of calm and clear thinking as well as compassionate thoughts toward those around me.
 Commitment:  How will you assess your progress or lack of progress in the next six months? What strategies can you use to assist in maintaining your long-term practices for health and wellness?
I just signed up for my next two courses and one of them is with a Professor that I had last year.  This is not a good thing with this particular Professor.  Well coming out of this class I am only hoping that I will be able to take my skills that I learned here into this next class and do better internally with them.  This will truly be the test to see if I maintain my progress and my strategies that I have learned here.  So that will be one way to asses that I am keeping my new techniques in my life.  I am if anything going to enforce them otherwise my judgment of past experiences is going to get into my way.
Something else I will do that is record the relaxation audios on a dvd so I can play them whenever I need as well as carry Elliot Dacher’s book also my Consciousness and healing book with me like a security blanket.
