Symptoms And Signs Of Spiritual Awakening Image

Often spiritual awakening happens so spontaneously that many people are confused by what is happening to them. If you are experiencing life changes and feel that you are no longer the person you used to be, it is helpful to know the symptoms and signs of spiritual awakening. It is quite possible that you are in the process of spiritual awakening but do not know about it yet.

What Is Spiritual Awakening?

Spiritual awakening is a reconnection of your material self with your spiritual self. A person who has experienced spiritual awakening realizes that he (she) is not his (her) name, physical body, mind, or personality that he (she) is used to consider himself (herself). In fact, spiritual awakening is an awareness of your spiritual nature.

Spiritual awakening does not necessarily associate with religion as it also happens outside religions.

This is not always a simple and pleasant process. During spiritual awakening, lots of changes happen at different levels: physical, mental, emotional and social. But all these changes always for the best, because the Universe is cleansing the space for something new and good to come.

Let’s look at the signs and symptoms of spiritual awakening. But first of all, I would like to note that each person has his own unique signs because this process is very individual. In this article, I will list only the General symptoms and signs of spiritual awakening that are typical for most people.

Signs Of Spiritual Awakening

Crisis

Often spiritual awakening begins with life changes, and, it may seem that these changes affect you in a negative way. But in reality, such changes lead to spiritual awakening, liberation from illusions and greater understanding of the Truth. If you’re experiencing a number of serious changes in life, it is not a reason to be discouraged, rather it is a reason to start focusing on prayer, study of sacred knowledge, and the communication with spiritual mentors. Take some time for thinking, analyzing and writing about what is happening to you. Pay attention to details and signs, and stay open to new experience. In fact, spiritual awakening is a joyful event that frees us from all unnecessary things.

Interest in new issues

An important sign of spiritual awakening is the emergence of important questions like: “Who am I? How does the world work? What is Truth? How do I gain liberation?” If you have a genuine interest in finding answers, then these questions will lead you in the right direction. Studying the sacred books, meditation and journaling will help you find the answers.

Increasing conversations with yourself

You’ll find yourself talking to yourself more often. Suddenly you may notice that you’ve been talking to yourself for the last 30 minutes. Inside you, a new kind of communication is born, and you see only the top of the iceberg in these conversations with yourself. These conversations will grow and they will become more lively, more connected and more insightful. You’re not going crazy, you’re just moving into a new phase of your development. I recommend you write down the most insightful parts of these conversations.

Feeling alone, even surrounded by people

You can feel lonely and disconnected from people. You may want to avoid crowds and groups. You have to understand that you follow a lonely and sacred path. Even though you’re feeling lonely and anxious, it’s hard for you to relate to people. You need to understand that this time will pass and the emptiness inside will be filled with the love and divine energy.

Activity at the top of the head: tingling, itching, irritation, as if something is crawling on the scalp and/or down the spine.

The feeling of energy vibration in the upper part of the head, as if the energy of the shower is pouring out of the head. It may feel as if the energy is emitted through the top of the head in the form of “splashes”. You may also feel pressure on the top of your head as if someone was pressing a finger into the center of your head. You don’t need to worry about these feelings. What you’re experiencing is the opening up of the Crown chakra.

Sudden changes in work or career

It is one of the most common signs of spiritual development. As you change, everything around you changes too. Don’t worry about finding a “perfect” job or career. It will eventually come. You are in a transition period now and can change a few jobs before you find one that fits your aspirations.

A disconnection with your family

You’re connected to your biological family through old karma. When you break the karmic cycle, the bonds of old relationships break. It may seem that you are moving away from your family and friends. But it is temporary. After a while, you can build a new relationship with them, if that’s what’s meant to be. However, these relations will be based on new energy, without karmic bindings.

The desire to find a soul mate or twin flame

Much more than ever, the idea that you can have a relationship that is consistent with who you truly are is growing stronger. You want to have a conscious relationship, meet your soulmate or twin flame.

Changes in food preferences: a refusal of meat, craving for fresh and healthy food

The fact is that your body begins to vibrate at a higher frequency. And therefore now needs high-quality food. Don’t deny what your body says you need to eat. Listen to your body.

The unusual nature of the sleep

Another common sign of spiritual awakening is that very often you will wake up between 2 and 4 am. There’s a lot of energy work is going on inside you, and it often leads to waking up. Don’t worry. If you can’t sleep, get up and do something instead of lying in bed and worrying. It is also temporary.

Intense dreams

They can include dreams about wars and battles, persecution, monsters, etc. You literally release the old energy from within, and these energies of the past are often symbolized in the form of wars, search for a way out and horror stories. It will also pass.

Heart palpitation

The opening of the Heart chakra may be accompanied by the acceleration of the heart. This only lasts a few minutes and means that the heart is rebalanced after an emotional release. Remember to talk to your doctor about health conditions that concern you. Then you will know for sure that this condition is not associated with health problems.

Invisible presence

There’s a variety of examples. Some people report that they feel that they are surrounded by some beings at night, or that someone is touching or talking to them. Often they wake up as from a push. Some also feel that their bodies are enclosed in a vibrating ball. These vibrations are caused by energy changes as a result of emotional purification.

Electrical and mechanical faults

You may notice that next to you light bulbs flicker, computers crash or radio devices fail.

Increased intuitive abilities and Altered States of consciousness

When you think of someone, you immediately hear from them. Synchronicities happen all the time. You may receive sudden insights about events from the past. You discover psychic abilities, out of body experiences and other psychic phenomena.

Feeling more connected with animals and plants

Animals now seem more “human” in their behavior. You are less afraid of wild animals. Plants respond to your love and attention more than ever. You may even receive messages from them.

Flashes of creativity

You’re getting images, ideas, music and other creative inspirations at a stunning speed.

You live your purpose

You know you’re finally doing what you came to Earth for. You get new skills and abilities, especially for healing. Your experience of life and your activities now come together and make sense. You are finally starting to use it all.

Signs, visions, numbers, and symbols

You see what has a spiritual importance to you. Now you notice how the numbers appear synchronically in your consciousness. There’s a message in all this if you take time to think about it.

You find a spiritual path

Suddenly you reach a perspective you’ve never thought of before. You are eager to know more. You read, share with others, ask questions and go deep inside to learn more about who you are and why you are here.

You look younger

When you clean up emotional problems and let go of limiting beliefs and “heavy baggage” from the past, you really start to glow more and more. Your frequency is increasing. You start to love yourself and life more and more. You look and feel younger. You begin to look like your perfect true self, who you really are.

Physical disorientation

Sometimes you will feel very “unearthly”. You will feel as if you can’t put both feet on the ground, or as if you’re walking between two worlds. While your consciousness moves into the new phase, your body sometimes lags behind it. Spend more time in nature to help ground yourself. It is also temporary.

Lucid dreaming

Sometimes your dreams are so real that you wake up confused. It’s hard for you to understand if it’s a dream or reality. Very often your dreams can be mystical messages to you. And in some dreams, you just know that you’re not “sleeping” and that what’s happening is real.

A sense of Unity with all

This is a direct experience of Integrity, a transcendental consciousness. You’re overflowing with compassion and love for life and all living creatures. Compassion and unconditional love for all elevate you to higher levels of consciousness and joy.

A deep desire to come back Home

This is perhaps the most difficult and challenging part. You may have a deep and overwhelming desire to leave the planet and come back Home. This desire is not based on anger or dissatisfaction with something. You don’t want to make a big deal out of it and create drama for yourself and others. It’s just one part of you that longs for spiritual unification. The reason for this is quite simple. You’ve finished much of your karmic cycle and are now striving for spiritual perfection.  You are now ready to start a new life, a rebirth of sorts while remaining in the same physical body.

You need to understand that your Spirit needs you here. There will come a time when some people will need a human Mentor like you who’s already passed this awakening phase.

The Bottom Line

Life never gives us a challenge that we cannot handle. And every time we overcome the most difficult challenges we only become stronger. The same with spiritual awakening. It’s not easy to go through it but once we’re done we become completely new stronger versions of ourselves. No matter how dark and lonely your journey may seem at times, remember that you are never alone.

7 Feng Shui Bathroom Tips, Taboos, And Cures

Published

Feng Shui Bathroom Tips Image

Usually, not much thought is given to bathrooms, especially when it comes to Feng Shui as they are thought of as “taboo” areas of the home. However, it is in the toilet that the greatest amount of negative energy accumulates. Therefore, it is important to protect the home from the destructive force and equip the bathroom according to Feng Shui bathroom tips.

Some Feng Shui masters suggest making the bathroom as small as possible, keeping it out of sight, and even away from the main house. I do not support such extremes! In this article, I want to share with you the adjusted (for modern living) Feng Shui bathroom tips, taboos, and cures.

The Bathroom And Sha Chi

The theory of Feng Shui is based on one important rule: when Chi is entering the house it should be dispersed throughout the rooms without obstacles. This harmonious Chi flow is very important for maintaining harmony and peace in the house, attracting prosperity and health.

Chi does not like it when the house is messy when there is a lot of junk. Such an environment can disrupt its circulation and turn vital energy into a negative force that leads to relationship problems, money loss, diseases, and all kinds of troubles.

The bathroom is the most vulnerable place for Sha Chi energy.

Sha Chi, or “killing Chi”, is the Chi that has low Feng Shui energy vibes. It originates from negative surroundings and can cause various detrimental effects. It brings misery and disease.

Often Sha is formed in places where it is dark and dusty. Such energy is carried by withered flowers, garbage and old things, dirty dishes, and cobwebs. It is associated with bad odors, called Sha-odors, which often accumulate in the toilet room.

Sha is able to get into the toilet and toilet tank. It is able to go through different holes and disappear together with the drafts through the window.

When flushing water, a large amount of energy is destroyed, and with it, well-being. However, this will not affect the Feng Shui of your house if you follow the 7 Feng Shui bathroom tips described below!

7 Feng Shui Bathroom Tips

Now let me share with you how to Feng Shui your bathroom so it doesn’t affect the energy of the entire house in a bad way.

Feng Shui Bathroom ideas Image

Tip #1: Make sure that your bathroom is not located in the Northwest or Southwest sector of your house

The first and most important thing you should watch out is where your bathroom is located. Check out what sector it occupies by using the Bagua map.

Make sure that your bathroom is not located in the Northwest or Southwest sector of your house! The Northwest represents the Patriarch and a toilet here flushes down his luck. Similarly with the Southwest sector that represents the Matriarch.

The element of Northwest is Metal. In the bathroom the dominant element is Water. Now ask yourself: how does Water affect Metal? That’s right – water covers metal with rust! That can’t be good for Feng Shui of your house, right? In addition, the drains in the bathroom are the place through which the energy leaves the house.

This situation has a tangible impact on a man – he has no energy, no power, it’s hard for him to support his family and express his masculinity. If a man is inherently weak, he will continue to live in such a house, staying on the sidelines. But if his nature is strong, he will leave such a house sooner or later.

The Southwest bathroom weakens the hostess of the house, disconnects her from the partner and family. According to statistics, a very large percentage of single women have a Southwest toilet.

It’s also bad for business because it leads to an inability to establish good partnerships. And if a businesswoman has such a bathroom the problem doubles.

If you already live in a house with a bathroom in the Northwest or Southwest sector, and you cannot change the layout of rooms, then at least spend a bit of money to make sure the toilet bowl itself is not located in the Northwest or Southwest of the bathroom.

Tip #2: Avoid golden bathtubs and toilets!

Golden Bathtub Image

To have a golden bathtub or even a toilet is not just vulgar, it is very bad Feng Shui. It doesn’t even have to be real gold for it to bring bad luck, because tubs wash things away, and when you line your tubs with gold, you symbolically flush or drain away your money luck every time you use your tub.

It’s better to go for regular stainless steel tubs, and regular materials like ceramic, plastic, or Perspex toilet seats.

Tip #3: Do not locate your toilet above the main door

This is a major taboo!

Your main door sector is your most important sector of all! Therefore you should always check for this taboo before putting down that down-payment for your new dream house.

If you already live in such a house and have been suffering a bit of bad luck after moving in, it is so worth your while to spend the money to make some changes – either to the location of your bathroom or to your main door. This configuration is one of the most dangerous ones!

Tip #4: Make sure the toilets do not share walls with beds

When designing your bathroom, make sure your toilet does not share a wall with your bed. It’s OK to have the bedroom right next to the bathroom. But just make sure that something less inauspicious shares the other side of your bed wall. Like a mirror, or sink, or bathtub.

Tip #5: The bathroom can be big, but the toilet should be small

The taboo associated with bathrooms is usually specifically confined to the toilet bowl, so if you have a beautiful big spa-like bathroom, it is OK. Just remember to keep the actual toilet small. It is better to confine the toilet in a small room within the bathroom. And make sure you keep the door to your toilet closed at all times when not in use.

Tip #6: Choose the right color scheme

Bathroom design Image

Feng Shui colors can be divided into two groups: yin and yang. When decorating your bathroom, make sure you’re not making it too yin with colors.

Bedrooms are good when slightly more yin than yang, as bedrooms are where you’re meant to relax and sleep. Bathrooms, although they’re meant for relaxing, are also where you scrub and cleanse yourself, so it should be a touch more yang than yin.

So go for colors that are bright rather than dark. Whites, creams, and pastels work a lot better for bathrooms than blacks, maroons, or khakis.

If you go for a dark color, make sure the walls contrast nicely by painting them a complimentary light color. As long as you have balance, and the balance is tipped in favor of yang, you should achieve a good color scheme.

Tip #7: Choose the proper decor and decorations

To adjust the flow of energy, you need to properly decorate your bathroom. The decorations in the bathroom should show the essence of the Water element. It’s OK to have pictures of:

  • the ocean;
  • sea;
  • lake;
  • waterfall;
  • boat;
  • beach;
  • snow;
  • ice.

It is forbidden to hang images of the sun, its rays, sunset, dawn, desert, and landscapes in the bathroom. All of them belong to the element of Fire, which contradicts the Water element.

The main thing is to avoid dark, yellow, and orange tones.

Feng Shui Bathroom Taboos

Feng Shui Toilet Tips Image

According to the Feng Shui rules, you should always avoid:

  • Broken plumbing – leads to money loss;
  • Leaking out the water of the drain tank – leads to financial loss;
  • Open toilet lid – leads to the spread of negative energy from the toilet into the living space;
  • Dirty floors, garbage – create destructive energy;
  • Dirt in ventilation grilles;
  • Bad smell.

It is important to keep the bathroom clean for the wellbeing of all family members.

The Bottom Line

Sometimes the house itself can be clean and cozy, and the decorations and talismans can be arranged in accordance with the the Feng Shui rules. However, people who live in it may still get depressed, face financial difficulties, and constantly quarrel. If this is your case, you should pay attention to where your bathroom is located. This can help you find the cause of the trouble and a way out of the situation.

I hope the above tips will be helpful for you and serve as a tool for creating good Feng Shui in your home!

The Mature Feminine: Who Is She And Why You Should Get To Know Her?

Published

on

Mature Feminine Image

In this article, I want to introduce you to the Mature feminine energy, its importance in the creation process, and its essential qualities.

The Nature Of The Feminine Energy

The feminine role in the process of Creation is represented as the nurturing and sustaining aspect of energy consciousness. One of the most important things the feminine aspect does is creating and holding the space to nurture the creation. The feminine aspect creates the form, or womb in which creation will grow and unfold. Think of it as the limiting walls or boundaries of potential that masculine energy can express itself within.

SO is the magnetic or feminine force that exists in nature. CHA is the masculine electric force that exists within nature. All of life is electromagnetic or polarized. LAN is the state of harmony, balance and equilibrium between these two poles. SOLANCHA thus is the harmonious rhythm and cosmic pulsation of electromagnetic energy that flows throughout the universe.

The power of feminine energy depends on how much of herself she will give to nurture and sustain creation. If consciousness changes its focus and moves from the feminine aspect into the masculine to thrust into another direction, the initially desired creation may suffer if not die unless the focus is returned to the fullness of the original container of feminine wisdom. Feminine energy is qualitative while masculine energy is quantiative.

It is essential to realize that the feminine aspect of Creation is to become one with the Creation in some way. For most people, it is hard to understand since we live in separate bodies and physical offspring become separate (from their parents) individuals. Yet, the womb of the mother nourishes the fetus until it is born into the world. She and the fetus are one until it is born. So too the feminine aspect of our being for any creation in which we engage.

What Is the Mature Feminine?

mature feminine energy image

The mature feminine aspect represents the willingness to give of herself and become whatever she needs to become to nurture the creation. She nurtures the creation in the way it needs to be nurtured to grow thus her limitations become the limitations of the creation. Those limitations can lead to a positive or negative manifestation.

It is essential to understand that the creation can only unfold true to itself to the extent the feminine nurturing energy has matured.

It’s important to understand that this statement is true for males and females alike for both possess a feminine aspect. We are just more aware of the feminine aspect of females.

Both males and females have a feminine aspect that is needed to nurture any creation in which the male or female become engaged in creating. If we cannot adequately nurture the need of our feminine creative aspect, we will be unable to properly meet the needs of our creation.

On this point, it needs to be realized the mature feminine does not throw her energy or her life away. There is no foolishness, ego, or parasitic relationship here. It is an act that transcends the individual. The mature feminine will give of her life if necessary but it is not done to sustain a creation that will not become self-sufficient.

When the mature feminine energy is active, it is able to pull out of the masculine things the masculine does not know it is capable of doing. In many ways, the masculine does not know what it’s capabilities are. It takes the feminine to call it forth and pull out its essence though the container of her magnetic form.

It’s important to understand that this is not about a woman needing to call out what she sees as inappropriate behavior within a man. It is about the feminine within a male or female calling forth the masculine within herself/himself.

Let’s look at this from the consciousness perspective. The masculine aspect of consciousness is not aware of itself unless there is a movement of contrast energy, the feminine aspect of consciousness, is presented. In this sense, it takes the feminine energy, for the masculine to awaken. Hence the feminine nurturing energy awakens the masculine aspect of consciousness and magnetically pulls it toward its full potential.

The ripening of the Self is really about the maturing of our nurturing creative feminine aspect of being. It is about being able to become internally and externally whatever is needed for the Creation to unfold.

The ripening of the Self is about learning how to become more feminine to call forth the masculine aspect of our creative spirit to thrust out into the world a more authentic version of itself. This is what each of us needs to learn – living our truth in the world.

Our truth and our creative energy and power to live that truth has long suppressed by the world in which we grow up. Although we can be successful in life, we can still be suppressing the inner spark. We tend to live in the way in which we have been programmed to live. Therefore, it is essential for each of us to develop our mature feminine presence, to call forth our creative spirit, and create a safe and secure space for us to live our full potential.

Mature Feminine & Mature Masculine Vs. Immature Feminine & Immature Masculine

twin flame quotes image

For the Creation to be born, the Mature Feminine is as needed as the Mature Masculine. No matter what you’re trying to create – whether it is a balanced relationship or successful business – you need balanced energy that is based on these two principles – feminine and masculine. Any Creation, any manifestation, any idea needs these two qualities of energy to conceive the desired and give it birth.

However, most people are guided by false beliefs, and when trying to manifest all they can produce is a poor Creation, lacking any quality or even nothing at all. Therefore, it is important to understand the difference between the mature and immature feminine and masculine aspects.

Immature Masculine:

  • Competitive
  • Separation
  • Ego-centric
  • Self-serving
  • Boisterous
  • Arrogant
  • Emotionally detached
  • Motivated by self-serving interests
  • Insecure
  • Identifies with material possessions.

Mature Masculine:

  • Present
  • Man on a mission
  • Heart-centered
  • Focused
  • Determined
  • Seeks collaboration
  • Motivated by his mission
  • Emotionally intelligent

Immature Feminine:

  • Gossipy
  • Jealous
  • Needs validation from external sources
  • Low self-worth
  • Ego-centric
  • Seductive – uses sexuality to manipulate others and get attention

Mature Feminine:

  • Present
  • Nurturing
  • Empowering
  • Emotionally intelligent
  • Self-fulfilled and oozing self-love
  • Sensual
  • Confident in sexual energy
  • Motivated by heart and what will be of benefit to others
  • Whole

Next time you try to create something or manifest your goals, think about what emotions and qualities attract you to that project. If you are motivated by your competitive spirit – the immature masculine is speaking within you. This is the sign that with such poor intentions you will not succeed.

Or, if you try to build your new relationship based on pure sexual desires without heart and deep feelings being involved, the immature feminine is crying for attention within you. Such a relationship will not last long.

Test your desires on their maturity before you put any energy into their manifestations.

Developing Mature Feminine On External Level

Meditation guide image

Though every person despite the gender has both – feminine and masculine – energies within, women are external representatives of feminine energy on our planet. Therefore, it is especially essential for us, women, to develop mature femininity.

Though, we all have our slips between immature and mature – it is just good to be aware first and foremost of where our intentions are and what is motivating us. Therefore, I created the below list of mature feminine abilities as a reminder, first of all, for myself. Hopefully, this list can also provide some guidance for you on your self-development journey.

#1: The ability to love

The immature feminine begs for love and attention, while the mature feminine offers them to others as her precious gifts. This becomes possible only in a state of fullness, which is inseparable from the ability to love yourself unconditionally.

Loving yourself means accepting yourself and any emotions, taking care of your physical body and mental health, valuing your time, and not allowing others to overstep their boundaries. It means never, under any circumstances, betray yourself!

#2: The ability to enjoy life

Enjoying your life every single moment without regrets is a form of Zen. The ability to relax and really enjoy everything you do and be present is a sign of self-connection, inner balance, and high intuitiveness.

This means not thinking about work when you are spending time with your family and friends, not scrolling on the phone when you are having your morning coffee, not watching TV when having your dinner, etc. It all comes down to simply being able to breathe, hear, see, and feel consciously.

#3: The ability to be alone

This skill manifests itself in relationships: especially with the closest people. The behavior of the immature feminine is to “stick” to her protector/guardian, best friend, go with them at the same speed, “downsize” herself just to fit in, and not to stay alone.

The mature feminine loves and knows how to be alone and enjoys it. She sees aloneness as a gift to her soul and feels satisfaction from the bond she forms with herself.

This is also the ability to stay without a smartphone for several days and enjoy your own company.

The Bottom Line

We create our life every single second by choosing the thoughts we think, the emotions we feel, and the actions we take. Our reality is created by our thoughts that we color with emotions and express in actions. Every single thought – the seed we sow to manifest our reality – has its masculine and feminine qualities.

In order to create our desired reality, we need to support the inner marriage of the masculine and feminine energies of our thoughts. Let that support be based on harmonious and balanced qualities of the mature feminine and masculine so that the life you create brings you great happiness and joy.

How To Become Emotionally Balanced And Live a Stress-Free Life?

Published

on

Emotionally balanced person Image

Life always gives us challenges and life lessons for our development and personal evolution. Each of us in one way or another is dealing with some sort of life challenges. However, some people happen to manage these challenges better than others. You can find lots of examples where a big life challenge made a person much stronger and more successful in life, whereas a small problem another person faced caused him to go into a deep depression and mental breakdown.

So, why can some people handle anything and turn lemons into lemonade whereas others can’t deal with even the smallest of problems without feeling stressed?

In this article, we will share with you what emotional balance is and what are the principles of emotionally balanced people. Also, we will give you some helpful tips on how to improve your emotional health and become more emotionally balanced so that you can enjoy your life and deal with life challenges in a more harmonious way.

Emotional Health

We all manage stressful situations differently. Some of us can stay calm and balanced while solving a problem, while others violently show uncontrollable emotions.

It’s not a bad thing to be emotional, but it can negatively affect the course of events. And if you are an overly emotional person, you probably know about it.

The ability to remain calm in a stressful situation indicates a person’s emotional health. If you’re not emotionally healthy, chances are you’re going to run into trouble and turn a tiny problem into a big disaster.

The way you process your emotions determines how you will deal with issues as they arise in your life. If you’re emotionally disconnected with yourself, it makes it that much harder for you to process and cope with life circumstances and problems that you may encounter. When you’re able to truly find inner peace and balance your emotional self you’ll start to see life challenges in an entirely different way.

5 Principles Of Emotional Balance

The emotional balance may be an innate skill, but you can also develop it by starting to apply these 5 principles of emotionally balanced people.

#1: Wait for the right moment instead of acting right away

emotional balance image

This will help you master the skill of impulsive control – the ability to stop and think about whether you want to act. By learning to control yourself, you can take a break and evaluate the situation, and potentially committed actions in the long term.

For example, a friend or family member might make you angry. In response, you can immediately say or do something that may disrupt the relationship. The control skill will help you to choose an action that matches your best intentions.

#2: Take a pause

Emotionally stable people are patient – they can take a pause before reacting to the situation. If you are not such a person, remember how you reacted in a fit of anger? Now, think about what your response would be if you were patient for one hour.

If the first principle was about choosing the best action, this one is about sitting with your emotions and not taking any action. During this time, you will find a solution that will correspond to your intentions in the best way.

#3: The healing power of time

Acceptance doesn’t mean being weak and giving up or letting stress get the better of you. On the contrary, it is about understanding your emotions and believing that you will be OK.

Time heals! The feelings of sadness or frustration are temporary – they will gradually go away as time passes.

When you are emotionally imbalanced you may think that you will never get out of this state. Now, remember the last time you felt like this. You may have thought that this tough time would never be over, but you eventually felt better. And it always gets better as time heals!

#4: Make time for yourself

Bali meditation image

Emotionally stable people are organized people who know their self-worth and value their time. They know that taking care of themselves is the way they replenish their resources and become stronger.

Self-care for such people is a daily practice.

They have certain tools that they can use during times of stress to relieve it and regain their calm: meditation, yoga, sports, meeting a friend, a сup of tea, etc.

So, next time when you feel like stress is taking control over you, instead of allowing your emotions to guide you to self-destructive mode, focus on your inner peace – go to yoga class, do some breathing exercises, or meditate. Turn off your restless mind and listen to your inner voice!

#5: Focus on good things

Where attention goes, energy flows and manifestation occurs. You will attract whatever is most often and most powerfully on your mind and in your heart. So don’t focus on “what’s wrong.” You will only attract more of the same. Don’t waste your precious energy on something you don’t want to attract into your life! Shift your focus on good things instead. Remember that there is always something to be grateful for. Keep a positive mindset!

Count your blessings, not your troubles!

Counting your blessings puts you into a state of gratitude which opens the flow to attract more happiness and joy into your life. When you turn your attention to all the goodness that you already have you’ll find that you’ll begin to see things you had not noticed before and feel more appreciative of your life. With this kind of mindset, you will be able to deal with your life challenges in a more balanced way and see the right solutions for your problems more clearly.

Are You Emotionally Balanced?

mindful meditation image

After reading a bit about what it means to be emotionally balanced, how do you feel? Do you believe that you are emotionally balanced, or are there some areas of your life that you could use a little change in?

According to Dan Mager, MSW, “there are several levels of awareness involved in cultivating emotional balance:

#1: Become consciously aware that you are experiencing an emotion

Although you may not know specifically what the feeling is, it is important to simply notice and acknowledge that you have some feeling.

#2: Identify the particular emotion

It may be helpful to close your eyes, turn your focus inward, and allow yourself to experience that emotion in your body. Different emotions are typically experienced in different parts of the body.

For example, anger might manifest as tightness in your neck and shoulders, sadness as an ache in your chest, fear as a knot in your stomach, and joy as warmth in your heart.

#3: Put the emotion into words

“I’m feeling anxious.” “I’m feeling angry.” “I’m feeling sad.”

Putting the emotions you experience into words by making these simple self-statements can create the space you can use to respond intentionally rather than react automatically and unconsciously.

The good thing is that there are plenty of ways in which you can learn to balance your emotions, learn self-love, and see life in a more positive way. Here are some quick tips from Dan Mager, MSW to improve your emotional health you can start with.

#1: Feel your feelings

Instead of blocking your emotions or denying them allow yourself to feel whatever you’re experiencing. Write down your negative emotions instead of acting on them so you can vent.

#2: Grow daily

Every day challenge yourself to take risks. By doing this, you allow yourself to grow and boost your self-love. The risks don’t have to be hard. For example, you can talk to someone new, or learn a new skill, or even set a workout goal.

#3: Focus on the present moment

You see, usually, our mental health becomes challenged when we focus too much on what was or what could be. Though it is important to have structure and plans in your life, allowing them to consume your mind can be detrimental. It is easier to deal with reality when you start focusing on the present moment and stop worrying about the future.

#4: Laugh more

Try to find the bright side of things and laugh a little more through the ups and downs in life.

#5: Be grateful

Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, it’s great to show gratitude for what you do. Start reciting positive things about your life on a daily basis. Things like “I’m happy I have a job” and “I’m blessed I have a home” can start to make you appreciate more of what you have now.

#6: Make your heart sing

Connecting to something larger than yourself makes your life purposeful and meaningful. Do more of what makes your heart sing. It could be meditation, aerial yoga class, or seeing friends more often.

#7: Watch who you surround yourself with

You may need to take a look at your relationships to determine if they’re healthy. Having people who give off negative energy can certainly affect your emotional health. You may need to separate yourself from them as you learn to heal. Do this from a place of love and compassion, rather than righteousness or by wronging anyone.

The Bottom Line

Emotional stability is all about a balanced attitude to challenging situations and daily problems. By practicing the above principles and tips and learning how to respond to stress, you can live more joyfully and be a support to others.
