  • How to Find Peace in the Midst of Chaos

    Inner peace is the key to happiness, they say. Because of these, a lot of people are looking to find peace in this often stressful world. If you are one of them, then this one’s for you.

    In this blog post, we’ll share with you some tips that will help you cultivate a sense of peace despite everyday struggles. While it is impossible to do use all of them at once, it is still a good idea to give them a try until you eventually develop a greater sense of peace.

    Look at the bright side of things

    Life will sometimes be tough. There are times when we find ourselves in difficult situations. Maybe you got laid off from work, your relationship failed or you were diagnosed with a serious medical condition. More often than not, when we find ourselves in situations like these, we tend to look at others and tell ourselves how lucky they are. Sometimes, we can’t help but compare ourselves to others and be envious of them. If you do, you’ll only feel miserable. You may also think of yourself as a loser. This isn’t how it should be.

    Instead of feeling down and losing hope, try to focus on the bright side of things. Getting a divorce can be difficult, but at least you don’t have to endure your husband’s beating. Getting laid off from work can definitely hit you financially, but maybe there’s a better opportunity for you. Remember, there’s a reason for everything.

    Meditate

    A lot of people give up on meditation because they find it hard to shut down their thoughts. Sure, it can be difficult, but with regular practice, you’ll eventually get the hang of it. Plus, it can help you shut out the negative thoughts, worries and stress of everyday life. It will help you find a still tranquil point inside your mind and soul.

    As a beginner, you can start by practicing meditation for at least 10 to 15 minutes a day. Do this daily and try to make it a part of your every day routine. The best time to do this is in the morning. But you are also free to do so when you’re feeling stressed. Meditation is a great way to de-stress your mind. It calms mind down effortlessly.

    Make time for yourself

    Today, most people live a busy life. If you’re a working mom, you may have to juggle work, household chores and raising a family. You can’t relax after work since you still have to cook for your family, then clean up and then put the kids to bed.

    We understand that taking care of your family makes you happy, but you also need to take care of yourself. Make time for yourself, even if it’s just for a few minutes a day. Read a book, take a relaxing bath, go for a walk or spend time doing things you enjoy. This will help you relax and alleviate stress. By making time for yourself, you’ll experience more peace and joy in your days.

  • 4 Ways to Cleanse Yourself of Negative Energy Absorption

    We encounter a wide range of energies on a regular basis. We can acquire positive and negative energy by interacting with other people, touching an animal, object or other external sources. We also create our own energies by the way we act, speak and think.

    You’ll feel happy, inspired and energized if the predominant energy is positive. But you’ll feel drained, exhausted and depressed if the predominant energy is negative.

    How do we get rid of negative energy? Here are 4 ways to cleanse negative energy from your mind, body and your physical space.

    Meditate

    It is easy for the mind to fill up with unnecessary thoughts. If you allow negative thoughts like past hurts, judgmental thoughts, fear, worry and anxiety to overwhelm you, you are likely to suffer from depression and self-doubt. This can dampen your abilities, destroy your confidence and demean your value.

    Clear your mind of negative energy by practicing meditation. Do this in a quiet space and make sure that there no disruptions. Have a positive intention when doing it.

    Play music

    Every Chinese New Year, the fireworks are set off continuously for 1 to 2 hours. The Chinese do this not only to add a jubilant atmosphere to the festival, but also to scare away evil spirits. Loud noises break up energy patterns and allow them to disperse.

    Play some loud music, preferably uplifting music or happy songs. You may also dance to the music if you want to.  After doing this little exercise, your home will be rid of negative energy and you’ll feel happier as well; hence, creating a field of positivity within and around you.

    Smudging ceremony

    Smudging is a simple, yet powerful exercise that can help in keeping yourself balanced. This is especially beneficial for those who are around emotional people. You can also use this to remove negative energy from the area.

    You can smudge to clean yourself if you are feeling down, stuck or have been exposed to negative or heavy energies. Sweetgrass is used to bring in positive energy; while sage is for purification.

    Fresh air and sunlight

    Believe it or not, one of the easiest ways of acquiring positive energy is by allowing fresh air and a little sunshine into your home. If weather permits, open the windows and stand near the window. Or better yet, go out for a walk. The intrinsic positive energy of nature will boost positivity and make you feel splendid.

  • Reasons to Start Meditating Today

    Reasons to start Meditating Today

    The idea that meditation is good for you is certainly not new. For thousands of years, people have claimed that meditation has some positive effects on our health and well-being.

    But with the hustle and bustle of city life, most people would use lack of time as an excuse not to meditate. It only takes a few minutes a day. Plus, regular practice is necessary to experience the benefits of meditation.

    If you haven’t given meditation a try, now is the best time to start. Here is an overview of the biggest benefits of meditation.

    Reduce anxiety

    Meditation is touted for its anxiety and stress-reducing benefits.  Studies have shown that meditation, even for just a few minutes, can help reduce anxiety, depression and relaxes one’s mind. Consider trying meditation whenever you feel you feel overwhelmed, unstable or emotionally shut down.

    Improves relationship

    Today, more and more counselors advise couples to practice meditation. Recent studies have shown that couples who meditate become more loving, more self-reflective and less angry. In addition, couples who meditate regularly report greater marital satisfaction and experience lasting harmony in their relationship.

    Better focus

    Poor concentration is a common complaint by teachers and parents alike. According to a study that was conducted by researchers from University of Washington, people who meditate regularly stay energized, concentrates better and get more work done.

    Better memory

    Although meditation is often associated with a sense of peacefulness and relaxation, it also helps in improving memory. In a study that was conducted by a group of Harvard researchers, they have found significant changes in the brain’s gray matter after practicing daily meditation for 8 weeks. The gray matter functions by processing information in the brain.

    It’s good for the heart

    A 1999 study that was published in Psychosomatic Medicine showed meditation is particularly helpful for the heart. In fact, people who meditate have been found to have lower blood pressure immediately after meditating. Along with that, individuals who practiced meditation have been found to have lower heart rate and improved blood circulation.
