Health – 2 minutes to instant calm

 

When You Are in a Panic – Diaphragmatic (deep breathing) technique delivers more oxygen to the body, soothing the nervous system. The diaphragms rhythmic movement also massages your organs.

a. Lie on your front with your head to one side. Rest your arms either side of your head, placing your hands on the floor close to your crown.

b. Take a few moments to settle and get comfortable. Relax and soften your facial muscles, let your eyes close and become aware of your breath. Let your whole body melt into the floor as you exhale.

c. As you inhale fully notice how your belly softly presses int the ground then as you exhale, how it gently retracts again.

d. As you breathe slowly and naturally, move your attention to your ribcage and notice how the side ribs move, widening as you inhale and drawing back as you exhale. Just notice this movement and allow it to be easy without changing it.

e. Widen your attention to focus on your lower back. Feel how it expands and opens as you breathe in and softens and releases down as you breathe out.

f. Turn your head to the other side to even out the stretch and breathe with the same deep awareness for a few more minutes.

g. Come onto all fours, softly spreading your hands open and feeling your  back wide and long. Keep your hands under your shoulders and your knees under your hips. Gently bring your feet together and as you breathe out draw your hips back to your heels, then ease your butt back until it touches your feet to create a gentle stretch through your spine. (Child pose in yoga).

h. Release your ribs down onto your thighs and lower your chest and shoulders to bring your arms and forehead to relax on the floor. Rest here completely surrendering your body to gravity.

After that you should be feeling a lot calmer

Global Warming? – Hmmm Not So Much

 

08-19_news_iceland

This is an article written by Ian Rutherford Plimer is an Australian geologist plus many other letters after his name related to our Mother Earth. I believe it to be very interesting reading and maybe we should rethink a lot we have been sold via ‘Global warming’ and or ‘Climate Change’. 

You make up your own mind but I think not  Politician banging (well yes I am a bit)  but  I think I would rather listen to those who make it their life to study these things than Politicians that are swayed by those who will profit from our believing them (being the politicians).

Interesting reading 

 

BREATHE DEEPLY, (AND HOLD IT).

He has published 130 scientific papers, six books and edited the Encyclopedia of Geology.

Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?

PLIMER: “Okay, here’s the bombshell. The recent volcanic eruption in Iceland. Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet–all of you.

Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress–it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

I know….it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50p light bulbs with £5 light bulbs….. well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just four days–yes, FOUR DAYS–by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time–EVERY DAY.

I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt. Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

Yes, folks, Mt. Pinatubo was active for over one year–think about it!!!!

Of course, I shouldn’t spoil this ‘touchy-feely tree-hugging’ moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.

And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus ‘human-caused’ climate-change        scenario.

Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention ‘Global Warming’ anymore, but just ‘Climate Change’–you know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past few years and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.

And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme–that whopping new tax–imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer. It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.

But, hey, relax……give the world a hug and have a nice day!”

The Power of Light for Meditation

If you meditate you may use light for relaxation and visualization during your meditation. I often will use it in meditation to destress my body and mind. Works good.
I thought this diagram was a good example of what and where the colors will affect your thinking and well-being.
It’s a good diagram to print out and keep, visualize and use to relax your body when beginning meditation.
If you are having trouble visualizing a certain color you need to look at this diagram and you will see what is going on to actually block that color from your mind.
For those who have trouble meditating this is a great way to start by using these colors and visualizing them going through your body. For example start with red and then have it fade into yellow then to green etc. That works.

1. Studies show that snuggling before bed helps to relax the brain. This reduces the process of the brain over-thinking and making it easier to fall asleep.
Snuggling also helps keep blood pressure in check due to the normal chemical activity it generates source

2. 250 people are currently frozen, waiting to be revived with future technology.
About 270 people have undergone cryopreservation procedures as of 2013. The revival envisions repairs being conducted using a variety of microscopic organisms and devices that will restore healthy cell structure and chemistry at the molecular level before warming is done. Until then, we, or rather they wait for The Resurrection. Company President John Rodriguez inside one of the empty Cryon tanks used to contain the bodies.

3. Did you know you could go out with a bang. This sounds fantastic to me I would love it. “Heavens above Fireworks” is a company that turns your ashes into a firework after you die and you literally can be lit up and go out with a bang. A great way to say good-bye
