5 Easy Ways To Lift The Spirit

What to​ do?

Luckily for me there’s always been that curiosity of​ what’s out there in​ the alternative world including the alternative therapies. I’ve tried many of​ them over the years and will continue to​ do so, all in​ the hope I can make things better for my body, mind and spirit. And it​ has.

I’m aware that what may work for me may not work for someone else, so the message is​ to​ keep trying until you find something that will suit your needs.

Many times I’ve been told they’ve tried everything. What is​ everything? What it​ actually boiled down to​ you could count on one hand. It’s worthwhile to​ keep searching, you may find that your world expands in​ a​ most amazing way by the making of​ new friendships (I have) and picking up useful skills for your ‘self-healing’ tool-kit.

So what do I do when I’ve reached a​ cross-road and need some direction or​ could do with some healing?

Below I’ve listed 5 basic points that have helped to​ lift my spirit and with practice will also help yours:

1. Meditation! Meditation is​ one of​ the greatest self healing tools available and costs nothing except a​ little of​ your time! There are many meditation techniques out there, find one that suits you and begin.

By putting some meditation music on and spending time in​ quiet contemplation it​ can soothe your soul and reconnect you with the highest aspect of​ yourself.

2. Aromatherapy and Essential Oils.

Rebalance and rejuvenate your spirit through blending a​ selection of​ essential oils together in​ an​ aromatherapy oil burner. I’ve found the following blend works extremely well when there’s a​ need for nurturing, support and healing:

Approximately an​ hour before retiring to​ bed place a​ few drops of​ the following in​ an​ aromatherapy oil burner with some water (for safety’s sake, extinguish the flame before lights are turned off for the night):

4 drops Jasmine

4 drops Rose

4 drops Neroli

3 drops Lavender

3 drops Bergamot

The smell divine! I use this one every now and again and not only sleep like a​ baby but anxiety and stress disappears, and feels like the weight of​ the world has lifted from my shoulders by the following morning! (If you have a​ small bedroom you might like to​ half the amount of​ drops)

3. Breathe! Stand with feet a​ shoulder-length apart. Take 3 slow and deep breaths using the diaphragm muscles. Breathe in​ through the nose, and breathe out through slightly parted lips. as​ you do these imagine you’re inhaling your personal power, filling every cell in​ your body, from your diaphragm up to​ the top of​ your head.

Be your personal power and notice how much taller, straighter and stronger you become. Repeat the steps above.

4. Be in​ the Present Moment. Take a​ few deep breaths and focus totally on this moment, right now.

If you’re reading a​ book or​ magazine, or​ even this article, totally focus on the words and take in​ their meaning. There is​ only you and this article now in​ the present moment.

If you’re in​ the workplace, focus totally on the task at​ hand, and only this task, and what you must do in​ order to​ complete it. Nothing else matters except you and the task at​ hand.

5. Set an​ intention. When I’m on the lookout for something new and useful for me, I set my intention on what it​ is​ I’m after.

For example, I may want to​ find a​ book that will give me answers in​ regards to​ directing me to​ another healing modality or​ skill. I then meditate on this intention, give it​ a​ timeframe then open my heart to​ it. Lo and behold I will have a​ book in​ my hand in​ no time at​ all! I love the power of​ intention – I also use intention for getting a​ parking space when I go shopping!

These days I rarely get sick and when I do and have a​ medical checkup, doctors tell me I’m actually very healthy (surely they can find something so I can get some sympathy around here!) which also includes blood test results.

I still do sadness and unhappiness well (I’m still human) though neither lasts long whereas in​ the past it​ would last many days sometimes weeks. What lasts much longer is​ a​ peaceful state.

When using the 5 points above, my spirit lifts and life once again becomes more peaceful and joyful.
