The Crud Offensive - Part 1






“The Crud Offensive”
 PART 1

by Regina Ann

Recently our youngest son, then my husband, then I went on the defensive against the latest “crud” making its way around. Being a holistic health practitioner I soon had lots of inquiries from friends and clients on how best to survive the current crud. Turns out several states were reporting a breakout of this particular crud version. That being the case I decided to write out my own “Crud Offensive” Strategy Guide to steering clear or recovering quickly from a trending crud outbreak.

First Rule of Combat: A Good Offense is the Best Defense. Therefore I am going to begin with some of my top offensive strategies for maintaining well being. These strategies include nutrition, emotional/mental, physical and spiritual components because being well requires nurturing our whole being.

Key Offensive Components: There are two things that all disease requires in order to survive and thrive – a Low Oxygen, High Acid Environment. The environment is You! Most of us in western civilization have not been taught the importance of breathing deeply and completely, of bringing the body to a state of rest where the parasympathetic nervous system can repair and restore the body systems. Furthermore, diet and nutrition as well as lifestyle and environment results in highly acidic body environments.

Knowing these Key Components it is easy to see that learning to Breathe for well being and make new choices that Balance our Body Environment is a First Line Offensive move. For detail on both you may visit my Resource Center and find the downloadable articles: Balance the Breath and Balanced pH. 

In Part 2 I will talk nutrition and nutritional support to build a good offense and my go to defensive players.  Until then...Be Well

WORDS



Words

Words are but attempts at expression
of a perception,
a thought, an ideal,
a means of communication.
and yet we get caught up
in semantics and variations
we prefer to bash one anothers utterance
and attempts at impartation
instead of listening to the intention
accepting the gesture with consideration

Words are a clumsy form of articulation
attempting to convey information
born of a thought penetration
When will we choose
to move
past the words
to the vibrational tone
of the intention they own
hear the heart of the essence
with the ears of compassion
acknowledge the vulnerability
of the attempt at expression

When we learn to listen
with hearts wide open
then we will hear
the soul speak
instead of the
Words

Control, Choices and Regret


During a Reiki session yesterday a client was struggling with feelings of not being in control, especially when others do things that impact him. He went on the say that he just didn't want to have any regrets. My intuitive response to this was to offer the truths that I hold on these things. Now I share them with you in the hope that it blesses you.

We have no control over another persons actions/behaviors/words which impact us. We do have control over our responses to them. When our responses flow from a space of compassion, we have not regret for our part in it because we act out of love. While it is, at times, challenging to remain in that space of compassion, it is possible. It is a choice, our choice, and our choices are always in our control. Even when we are faced with a choice we see as bad and a choice we see as worse...we still have a choice. If we choose not to have a choice...that is our choice.

Our outer world is simply a mirror of our inner world. The experiences we have are to assist in our growth as human beings. To change the actions/behaviors/words of another, we must examine our own thoughts and beliefs to determine why we are having these experiences. As we learn to evaluate the purpose of our experiences we are able to update our thoughts/beliefs/truths. The result is new experiences in alignment with our new being.

This is a continual process along our journey. Realizing this changes the perceptions we hold of the experiences and events of our life. Acting and reacting from a space of compassion and love offers us a peace throughout the process.

Whatever your experience...releasing the need to judge yourself and others will set you free. That freedom is empowering and ushers in a realm of new opportunities to live a little more in resonance with your true self.

Wishing you love and harmony in all ways

Wednesday Community Reiki


Every Wednesday is Community Reiki Day! Our passion to offer the healing benefits of Reiki at prices that make if more affordable for more people has inspired us to add Wednesdays to our Community Reiki offering.

Community Reiki is offered in a Relaxing environment including the added benefits of Aromatherapy and Music Therapy to the Reiki experience. For those who are not familiar with Reiki: Reiki is a Complimentary Integrative Medicine used in health care facilities around the world to assist in the body's healing process.

Stress is the number one cause of dis-ease in our society. Reiki provides a space and time of relaxation allowing the body to restore harmony and well being. Reiki also encourages a sense of calm so that the body and mind can function better.

Acupuncture:  For those familiar with acupuncture, Reiki works similarly to acupuncture in that it assists the body by relieving blockages in energy channels in the body allowing the body to restore itself to a state of well being. (Without needles)
