How To Create Body, Mind, and Spiritual Balance
Positive emotions like love, empathy, joy, and compassion not only feel good and help you get through your busy day filled with sometimes stressful responsibilities, but also support your overall health and well-being.
Here is a particularly helpful piece of advice to meditate on:
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things and the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:8)
But it's tough to live in these stressful times without occasionally experiencing negative emotions like anger, grief, jealousy, self-doubt, and depression, especially when life's challenges overwhelm you.
Coping with your negative feelings can be even tougher if you're in close contact with people who may be struggling with their own stresses and challenges. People in the healing field, like physicians and psychologists, encounter this frequently—but in reality, it's an issue for all of us since everyone battles minor and major stresses.
Two Practical Techniques For Stress Relieve
How can you stay calm, peaceful, and balanced in this stressful world and not let its negative energy pull you under? Many people practice yoga or T'ai Chi and exercise regularly to combat their stress. There are practical ways to combat stress which can manifest itself in your body as anxiety, or even irritable bowel syndrome.
But even these practices, may not be enough to totally overcome your feelings of being out of balance, or your emotional pain and discomfort.
In this article, I want to introduce you to two powerful processes that help restore physical, emotional, and energetic balance.
One is the predominantly Western process called "grounding," which I've written about briefly in articles in this blog. I'm going to give you a review of what grounding is.
Dwell on these verses as you take your deep breaths:
Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
Psalm 105: 60
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.
By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
Isaiah 42: 5
This is what God the LORD says – he who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:
2. See your body as a strong oak tree.
Your body is solid like the wide, brown trunk of the tree. Imagine sturdy roots growing from your legs and going down deeply into the earth, anchoring your body. You feel solid, strong, and able to handle stress.
3. When upsetting thoughts and situations occur, visualize your body remaining grounded like the oak tree. Feel the strength and stability in your arms and legs.
4. You feel confident, relaxed, and able to handle any situation.
As you can imagine, human beings have very complex emotional and energetic makeups, and they often struggle to balance the positive and negative thoughts that they're exposed to every day.
This is complicated by the fact that, from a medical standpoint, I have observed that very few people over the age of 40 (and even many younger people) have brains and nervous systems that are optimally balanced.
When they feel stressed, rather than dealing with it in a calm and balanced fashion, they may overreact and cause themselves fear, worry, and anxiety, while others are more under-reactive and tend to shut down and feel depressed.
Luckily, decharging can quickly and easily help you achieve the positive middle ground of balance. I have personally experienced the benefits of decharging, especially on days when I've been overwhelmed by my busy schedule or have been in the presence of people who are dealing with their own stressful situations.
Symptoms that indicate that decharging may be necessary include difficulty focusing; feeling hyperactive, irritated, or angry; headaches and neck pain; nausea; general pain and discomfort; burning eyes; leg muscle tightness; digestive troubles; and lack of appetite.
The Process of Decharging
To decharge, you follow a–simple two-step process.
First, start with a prayer of gratitude to your Higher Power—God, and Jesus for me. Then, state a specific intention—meaning for me I ask God to eliminate all negativity and stress within me.
This process may sound like this:
"Dear God, thank you for creating this beautiful earth element (these leaves, this rose, this soil, etc.). Right now, I'm decharging any and all negativity and stress in me and replacing it with positive thoughts and thankfulness."
This is a powerful technique to get rid of the stress you've accumulated during your day. It's also good to try after a bad day at work, an argument, or in any situation where a lot of negative attention was focused on you.
Then, dwell on something positive and to be grateful for. (Also visit my YouTube page to hear miraculous testimonials of healing that will encourage and uplift you.)
Three verses that have especially helped me when my mind wandered to the negative are:
Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad
1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God
Be sure to do this exercise of re-focussing and de-charging for at least 15 to 20 minutes—or longer, if needed. Daily practice is recommended. I hope I've given you some insight into two amazing techniques to help you create body, mind, and spiritual balance.
