Here it goes.....
Mental health influences emotional health and both of these effect physically health and vice sa versa. So mental health matters ..! I believe and I have plenty of reason to believe as I have had many family members with depression including my own mother whom died in hospital from meds over 20 yrs ago after many years of intense depression, that a lot of the people whom suffers with these conditions are missing vital understandings / wisdom and integration of the MIND~BODY~SPIRIT system. When Mind Body Spirit are connected in WHOLENESS and in clear communication with one another then a clarity, ease and sense of support is naturally available from the inside out.
Now you know where some of my passion for self-empowered WELLNESS has stemmed from..! A child watching her mother debilitated with mental confusion, low self-esteem, fear of the devil and with no education in self-care or nutrition required for a healthy nervous system and body.
Thankfully times have changed and are changing as more and more people take back there own self-responsibility for there health and well-being through self-education (DR Google is very handy this way), yoga, meditation, personal development , positive mental attitude and keeping supportive company where people feel safe to be themselves without judgement or nay sayers.
We are in amazing times where its imperative to take back ones power and take the reins on ones mental thoughts, emotions and generally well-being so one can make there invaluable contribution to the world, because I believe as we re-balance ourselves so too will the world begin to re-balance .
We have each been, some literally and others metaphorically (but no less real) been shaken up these last few years so we can each re-look at our values and what is to be tolerated and what is to be not tolerated in our world moving forward over the coming years.
Maybe you have noticed that your values only a few years ago may have been more about your retirement fund and now they are about booking a great holiday or adventure this year as why wait, life is for the living NOW. Not to mention whom knows if your retirement fund will even be there when you get there so why put life on hold till then working to pay the bills and just get by mode...!!! Maybe you simple are not interested in idle gossip and having conversations that make you feel worst about the world.

Notice how this messages makes you feel...? If it is uncomfortable then that is ok. We are not use to sharing with this level of authentically in our world generally. We are use to sharing through what we learnt through the filters of right/wrong, good/bad, comfortable or safe and a big No No to getting anyone uncomfortable. I am here to inspire by sharing through the strength and openness of my vulnerability. 2014 is becoming known as the year of transparency and this means that the old taboos, the half truths, the untruths and all that has been repressed and suppressed for years/eons actually are beginning to be revealed. I think the saddest thing happening in our world is not the economic situation or high levels of stress but that people think they are struggling with the challenges of life all on there own because no one is willing to speak to what may be felt as TOO uncomfortable and may be perceived perhaps as a weakness..?..!
In my conclusions it would seem in many ways that we have settled to become a nice people or extremely sarcastic to stay comfortable numb at all cost, instead of a authentic people with the courage to be true in the moment to what is and express how we really feel, know thats ok and then move on just like a child does. But we were taught it was not ok to express oneself freely...right..!!! So this is the conundrum we all face to release the rules and regulations of what we were taught is ok and tap into being more authentic and to know that is actually what is ok, true and correct. I can sense the fear, would'nt that mean that people would get reckless. No not really maybe for a few hours, a lot of the angst and anger comes from what has been suppressed, un-expressed or un-acknowledged. But this is the big fear all the same. If I pop my top (open my heart) and let my true authentic self out what if I get out of control or someones takes advantage of me. That is why it takes much courage and strength to let the persona go with all its control mechanism to stay safe/comfortable and surrender to the caring loving soul within and trust that this time we are living in is safe to do so. In my experience if feels kinda like taking a leap of faith into the unknown and then discovering you had wings to fly all along as divine support and guidance takes over somehow.
I absolutely know for sure, that one of the main reason of illness in todays world both physically and mentally, is the emotions and words that a person has repressed over years that eventually causes the physically aliments to arise. They develop from the soul or higher self perspective, to let the person know just how off balance they have gotten from being there authentic self / voice / emotional expression / souls life path. Thats why just dealing with something physically misses the mark when the core of the issue may well be emotional. If that is not acknowledged then no matter what one does to further suppress or get rid of the physically symptoms they must come back either somewhere else in the body to get the person's attention so they can make the life changes required, while receiving the gifts of awareness and compassion from the experience. This is one of the reasons many people whom have healed themselves from cancer and other illnesses by there willingness to make the life changes required is quoted as saying something that goes like this "I would never not have had the experience of the disease as it taught me to truly live and who I really am as a person".
In my world and deepest divine knowing...
"Our bodies are a wonderful and sacred gift, is'it it time to stop treating them like the enemy" the pain you want to get rid of or the machine thats needs whipping into a perceived healthy shape no matter the cost ...?
So many of us were brought up on values of hard work and these values belong in the past as life indeed seemed very physically hard not that long ago. Our life's due to so many changes not least technologically are asking us to take a review and who knows maybe we will decide that happy work that is creative, passionate and fun, surrounded by caring supportive people is now the new value system. ?
In Joyful Service to an empowered radiant humanity : )
