Greetings, readers. Since my message therapist, Alan, retired a few years back, I have had to find ways to keep myself feeling healthy and energized. Alan did chakra and energy work on me and it was truly a wonderful experience. He was able to open everything up and allow my natural body energy to flow. It has been forever since I’ve done chakra work and I need it badly.
Thanks to several channels on YouTube, there are numerous relaxation and yoga videos on offer. Ninety-nine percent of them are free and range from 20 minutes to 10 hours. One night I feel asleep to soft deep relaxation music especially created to help people sleep better. It worked for me, I was visiting the sandman within minutes.
I’m thinking of actually taking a yoga class, but they are probably $60 an hour, which is not in my budget. So for now I am going to have to keep myself healthy by eating better and watching these wonderful videos to help me relax, focus, and keep my chakras open the way they should be.
When I was younger, I did not believe in any of the Eastern medicine practices. Today, they are intriguing and enlightening. I believe in them very much. I had a friend tell me once that they are hypnosis; that is incorrect. It is true that they are for deep meditation, but it comes from the inside instead of the outside.
I have tried hypnosis videos and, at least on me, they don’t work. One that I viewed told me that I wasn’t going to be able to move. After watching the twirling spiral for 15 minutes, I stood right up. Another said I was going to bark like a dog; no such happenings. Those videos are just for fun. The yoga, relaxation and meditation videos do have merit and worth for well-being.
With all of my medications for my health issues, I’m constantly seeking ways to feel better. Is my diet the best that it could be? No, but I am working on that. Am I going to do three hours of deep meditation every morning? Doubtful. For now I think I will use it when I need it. But if I notice a marked improvement in health, I shall increase the number of times a week I participate with meditation.
On a side note, for any of my friends who read my blog who are Bear Spring Campers and did not hear the news, long time head cook Mr. Pearl passed away a day or two ago. So sad. Rest in Peace my friend.
Next week I’m anticipating a regular work week. I’m going with Traci to her doctor on Monday and there will be work days on Wednesday and Thursday. Until next week, I bid you a happy weekend, do take care, and as always happy reading.
