The Heart of Healing: Loving Self and Others


Happy Valentine’s Day – “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways….”

IMG_0405

  • Elizabeth Barrett Browning touched upon love in her sonnet. We, too, are prompted to consider who and what we love on Valentine’s Day.
  • Our ability to give and receive love is frequently lost in daily life as we face constant stress and change. Making time to love our Self and others becomes a challenge, yet one which can ground and deepen the connection with our heart and authentic Self. Valentine’s Day is a reminder, but how do we live and bring what is at the heart of all healing, love, into our lives each day?

Self-care practices provide a key to increasing Self-awareness, living mindfully, and being present to give and receive love to ourselves and others. When I begin my day with the Self-care practice of meditation, I am more focused, awake, and aware throughout the day. Add a dance class and I come alive through movement and music that enlivens my body and brings joy to my soul. Time in nature, taking a mindfulness “breather,” brings me home to my human nature, and I return to life as a human being NOT a human doing. And, in case I get too serious, laughter and play breaks lighten my whole being and change my perspective on everything and everyone.

Loving myself, through Self-care practices, ripples out and affects not only my health and well-being but the health and well-being of my family and all my relationships. These practices are like a cool shower on a hot day, after which I feel refreshed, revitalized, and awake to what each moment presents.

What Self-care practices do you use as a way to love and care for your Self?

 

Namaste…(the Light in me honors and bows to the Light in you)

Events: The Heart of Healing — Acupressure for Self-Care

DSCN1573                                                                                                    

Where:  Brandeis National Committee, Westlake Chapter, Jackson, NJ                    

When:   June 12, 2013

Topic:   The Heart of Healing: Discovering the Secrets of Self-Care            

             Maximizing Well-being Using Acupressure for Self-Care”

The problem we face today is how to live and be healthy in a world filled with constant stress and change. I have discovered three solutions, which supported clients’ healing, during the thirty years I have worked as a physical therapist:

  1. increase Self-awareness
  2. learn and use Self-care practices
  3. reconnect with your heart and authentic Self

Come and be introduced to a simple, non-invasive acupressure formula to relieve stress that can be self-administered in about twenty minutes. The Seva Acupressure for Self-Care program*, created as a gift to the world to relieve suffering, was developed and used at Ground Zero following the events of September 11, 2001. Since its inception, the Seva program has been presented nationally and internationally. In the US it has been taught and used in hospitals, private practices, colleges, schools, shelters, houses of worship, and Walter Reed Medical Center. No special equipment is required. This extremely useful tool addresses a wide range of needs, including general relaxation and shock and stress. Clients who use this program report reduced stress, improved sleep, enhanced focus, and an increased ability to respond to daily challenges. I, too, have personally benefited from this program.

*Seva: Sanskrit word for service
