5 Ways To Soothe Mind Body And Spirit

5 Ways To Soothe Mind Body And Spirit



Self improvement (or self help) tools come in​ many shapes and sizes; sometimes it’s physical in​ nature (a self help book, having a​ massage, painting with water colors), or​ spiritual in​ nature (flower essences, Reiki, meditation which is​ both physical and spiritual, etc).

Five of​ the best self help options that I’ve used successfully to​ help soothe my own mind, body and spirit, are:

1. Meditation techniques – a​ fabulous self help tool which greatly benefits overall health and wellbeing. There are many techniques to​ choose from such as:

Visually guided meditations;

Candle meditation;

Breathing meditation;

Crystal meditation;

Writing meditation (alternating using dominant and non-dominant hand);

Walking meditation;

Body scanning; and

A self healing meditation using either color; breathe work; aromatherapy; etc.

2. Painting with water colors, pastels or​ oil paints – express your uniqueness through art. This is​ a​ wonderful self help tool to​ employ for inner healing, letting go and for creating something new (a masterpiece for your lounge room wall).

3. Vibrational essences. Part of​ ancient wisdom, vibrational essences are used in​ healing to​ assist with the removal of​ emotional blocks and patterns, as​ well as​ resolving issues from past lives.

Essences are generally in​ liquid form and can also be used in​ creams, ointments and oils (I sometimes combine mine with an​ aromatherapy oil blend).

Vibrational substances are derived from light (sun, moon etc), healing energy (universal or​ spiritual energy, prana, Reiki etc), plants (flowers, stems, leaf etc), mineral (crystals, gold etc), environmental (sacred places), or​ animal.

Some examples of​ essences available (there are many) to​ explore further as​ a​ self help tool are:

Flower, Gem, Angel, Shell, Coral, Sea, Goddess, and Chakra essences

4. Journal writing is​ a​ fabulous self help healing tool connecting you with your true essence, your spiritual self.

Find yourself a​ special journal/diary to​ write in; something special to​ write with (can be brightly colored inks or​ the more traditional black, blue or​ reds) and make a​ date with yourself to​ do some journal writing every morning at​ the same time (before rising out of​ bed).

I’ve practiced journal writing as​ a​ self help tool for many years and still find it, to​ this day, one of​ the greatest self help and self improvement tools around – and it​ costs nothing!

Write out your worries, sadness, loneliness, or​ whatever is​ playing on your mind. When you’ve done that write in​ your journal the excitement, enthusiasm and passion you intend to​ experience for the day ahead, the projects you’re working on, friends you’ll catch up with, food you’ll eat, possible miracles that might happen, shopping to​ be done, your work day etc.

5. Have a​ massage. Treat yourself to​ some bodywork like a​ Swedish massage. Swedish is​ a​ more traditional or​ western soft tissue type of​ massage, however if​ you’re after something a​ little more unique for healing mind, body, and spirit you could choose:

Aromatherapy massage – there’s nothing quite like this one using essential oils for body, mind and spirit.

Ka Huna, LomiLomi – gentle, relaxing, soothing and stretching massage (even watching this massage is​ relaxing);

Reflexology – therapeutic hand and foot massage;

Reiki – hands on energy healing (aligns Chakras etc)

Vichy Shower – warm water is​ directed over your body, gently massaging it​ (this is​ heavenly, especially after a​ salt scrub).

Acupressure – form of​ bodywork based on Chinese Meridian theory

Ayurvedic – part of​ a​ traditional detoxification and rejuvenation program of​ India called Panchakarma – vigorious massage with warm oils and herbs to​ remove toxins, is​ calming and balancing, and facilitates profound inner peace.

Hot stone massage – warm smooth stones are applied to​ the body and employed by the therapist’s hands.

A massage not listed that I experienced while ago was a​ form of​ Swedish massage. I was given small smooth rocks to​ hold in​ either hand, at​ the end of​ the massage the therapist held my feet and ‘tuned’ me, which sounded like a​ clarinet going up and down the scales. to​ say I felt relaxed and energised at​ the same time is​ an​ understatement. it​ was amazing.

I’ve road tested many self help tools over the years; it’s been an​ amazing journey with the most profound assistance coming from spirit. Sometimes good comes from being blinded by the light.
