Overcoming Stress Part 1
Greetings Beloved Ones…
With the hectic pace of life, now more than ever before, we are seeing many humans struggling to handle the stresses caused by modern lifestyles. Often in our messages we talk of consciously focusing on energies, your own energies and those energies around you, but perhaps it may help you to learn more practical ways, so that you can avoid tension, anxiety or anger ruining your day.
To gain the best out of life, we often guide you to look to serving others, and for many it is construed that you should give and give, however it is in the giving that you also give unto the self. Let me explain myself….. If you are suffering from depression this is when you consciously focus all your attention and energies inward upon the self. You focus upon how you’re feeling, what has caused you to this deep valley of darkness in your life and when you internalise everything at such a deep profound level, the energy is unable to be released in a balanced manner. This means your internal energies are like a bottle of pop which has been shaken and shaken.
Try to release the energy, and it will just blow up. Containing the contents of the bottle creates inward stress, inward stress leads to further break down, particularly in the human body, and this is called dis-ease. To change the internal stress, begin to look at what is happening around you and ask yourself, “how can I serve?”.
The fact that you may not ‘feel’ like serving must be ignored. What you are doing by looking around you, at others, and asking yourself “How can I serve, or help a situation, or someone”, you create an energy exchange. This energy exchange, triggers the chemicals in the brain to reduce the stress hormones and begin to release ‘feel good’ endorphins.
Be very aware that when you ‘over’ internalise your problems, you create tunnel vision. This is why you develop a tendency to dwell and fixate all of your energies on problems. Looking and considering how you can serve will help you go from frustrated to refocusing, to finding a new perspective. It is all about transfering energies, transforming them from negative, into a positive, whereby karmically in serving others, you can rest in the peaceful knowledge that the universe will bestow upon you new blessings.
Tomorrow I will help you look at how to handle your anger when you feel your personal boundaries are being encroached, until then, make today a day where you ask yourself, “How can I serve?”, try it, and see just how differently you day feels, and how much sense of personal pride and joy you feel through your efforts. Your sense of self-worth will certainly be boosted:-)
