Dear Angel Friends,
At some point everyone looks for it. Some people find it, some people don’t. Some people have it but lose it, while others never get to have it at all. What is it that so many are looking for? It’s a simple, easy way to relax, reduce stress, and feel better.
In this fast-paced world we live in multi-tasking is the “norm” rather than the occasional need to do more. Juggling responsibilities like this can at times be a difficult balancing act. The problem is, balancing our lives in such a way can actually leave us quite out of balance. That is, out of balance with regard to the subtle energy fields governing the health of our body, mind and soul.
Balance of the Body, Mind and Soul is crucial to our health and well-being. You’ve probably heard that before, but if you’re one of those people who just don’t have time to spend hours each week at the gym, doing yoga or meditating, then you might want to try these energy exercises. They could be just what you’re looking for, and once you find them, they’re easy to hold on to, they’re yours to keep.
But you might be wondering “what are energy exercises?”
Those that follow traditional Eastern medicine believe that health is a function of the flow of subtle energy in and around the body. When the energy flows freely, there is health, but when obstructed there is discomfort and dis-ease, that can eventually lead to disease.
Many things can cause blocks in a person’s natural energy flow, one of which is stress. We now know the health ramifications of stress left unattended and unfortunately we are seeing more and more chronic stress-related diseases surfacing. The exercises here are based on the pioneering work of the late Dr. Randolph Stone’s Polarity Therapy theory. They are simple movements or positions that help unblock and balance subtle energy, strengthening various systems within the body. These energy exercises are simple, no equipment is needed, and only take a few minutes to do. I hope they will become a handy tool for managing your daily stress.
The angels are telling me to share with you these exercises, one each day for three days. They are simple but have so much benefit. Why not keep them in your relaxation “tool box” to pull out any time you need them.
Here is the first of the Energy Balancing Exercises for Stress Reduction, Relaxation and for Discovering a Happier, Healthier You!
EXERCISE 1: THE WISE MAN OF OLD
The Wise Man is an exercise that balances the five senses through finger positions placed on the face in a certain pattern.
• Get comfortable either sitting at a table where you can rest your elbows, or in a chair leaning over with your elbows resting on your knees, or sitting cross-legged on the floor resting your elbow on your knees
• Place your figures in the following positions
o Thumbs in ears
o Index fingers lightly over the eyes
o Middle fingers on the sides of the nose
o Ring fingers on the top lip
o Pinkie above the chin
o Hold this position breathing normally for a few minutes
STRESS REDUCTION TIP:
• The use of Lavender essential oil reduces stress and promotes a calmness and overall state of well-being. When you are feeling stressed, use this oil in a diffuser or boil some water, remove the pot from the stove, add a few drops of lavender oil into the water, and breathe in the aroma. Note that pure essential oils should not be used on the skin.
In Love, Light and Angel Blessings, Pam
