Soft Heart – a place to regenerate and find renewed balance
Let’s face it, nobody feels great, or even good, all the time. How you feel can shift frequently during a day, week or month. Mood swings are commonplace as life becomes more complex, overstimulating & uncertain.
Shifts in feelings & mood can be exhausting & confusing unless you have emotion regulation tools to use. When you learn to go to your Soft Heart, you’ll find an easygoing, warm place of compassion for yourself. It’s not a mushy or self-pitying place. It’s a place of ease & self-care.

A useful metaphor for Soft Heart is a warm, calming bath. Imagine yourself soaking in this bath in your heart, easing away tension & anxiety little by little.
*Your first step, before entering the "soak," is to recognize that you’re feeling disturbed, overwhelmed or depressed.
*Remember, it’s not the issues that cause your low-ebb feelings as much as the significance you’re giving them.
*Now, find your Soft Heart attitude by feeling love, care or appreciation for a person, pet or something you really care about. This helps you get into a soft place in your heart & increases your effectiveness when feeling care & compassion for yourself.
*Soak & relax any unwanted feelings in the compassion of the heart, letting the significance dissolve a little at a time. Take your time doing this.
*Keeping your attention in a Soft Heart can allow more coherent heart rhythms to emerge, helping you recoup mental, emotional & physical vitality.
*Respect the fact that you are human, living in challenging times. Allow yourself to ease & rest in the comfort of your Soft Heart to recoup energy.
As you move in slower motion for a while, you’ll find that your emotional energy delicately recharges & your vitality & heart buoyancy eventually will return.

How The Body Clears Energy - Whole-Self Well-Being
When your body is physically ill, try treating your emotions too & view your body as a whole.

Whole-self well-being is, in part, the result of a harmonious flow of energy between our physical & mental selves. When this flow is thrown out of balance for any reason, the body & mind react to one another rather than act cooperatively. Ongoing stress, sadness, anxiety, excitement & fear can overwhelm the cerebral self, causing traumatic energy to be channeled into the body. The body then responds by taking steps to organically dispel the energy that has burdened it & expressing it by means of physical symptoms such as illness, fatigue, or disease. In some cases, these symptoms can simply be allowed to run their natural course & recovery will come about naturally. In most instances, however, health & wellness can only be restored by a dual course of treatment that acknowledges both the physical manifestations of energy clearing & the underlying emotional causes.
Many of the ailments we experience over the course of our lives can be indicative of the body’s attempts to process intellectual & emotional energy. Swollen glands, for example, can signal that you are going through a period of emotional cleansing. Even something as simple as a pimple can indicate that your body is ridding itself of toxins & old energy. In Chinese medicine, intense emotions are held in the body’s organs as a matter of course. Grief lurks in the lungs, anger inhabits the liver, fretfulness lingers in the heart, worry is held in the stomach, & the kidneys harbor fright. Particular illnesses & symptoms represent the body’s attempts to clear emotional energy. Coughs or bronchitis can signify that the physical self is clearing away grief while a loss of appetite may signal that worry is being actively addressed.
When you feel ill or imbalanced, treating your whole self rather than treating the physical self alone can empower you to determine the root cause of sickness. Since you understand that your physical symptoms may be an expression of emotional discomfort, you can establish a balanced treatment regimen to ensure that you quickly recover your good health.

Read somewhere, like to share..\ .What is Ego? The ego is our sense of self. Our boundaries; a feeling of being me. Ego gives us definition in the 3-dimensional world: ”This is my body. This is my mind. This is me. These are my preferences, my limits – my, me, mine.” Ego is a necessary component of human life. It informs us of our choices in the world. Our beliefs, feelings, emotions & thoughts create our current & future realities so if you believe you need the ego to remain within your being to protect you, then that is a very valid belief that will continue to serve your soul’s learning process. However, just because we believe something to be true for us does not mean it is the highest truth for our evolution. At this time on the Earth we are in a very intense period of transformation where we are releasing old distorted beliefs & energies that once served our highest good & we are replacing them with new more evolved beliefs that will help us expand our consciousness so we can move forward. Positive Ego To have definition in this 3-dimensional world, we need our ego, right? But what choices do we make with this ego of ours? And how do we train ourselves to redefine our ego boundaries, as we expand as humans? Usually our sense of self is a sensation in the upper stomach; the solar plexus. This is the point of the inner sun that, when in balance, gives us a feeling of empowerment & joy in our lives. It gives us power to act and keeps us feeling independent & strong. It radiates warmth out into the rest of the body. It makes us value our uniqueness & when properly tended to & channeled, prepares us for greater service to others as the ego-energy is funneled up into the heart center. This is positive ego. Negative Ego Ego is by definition limiting. Its function is to keep us safe, to contain us. Its understanding doesn’t reach beyond the material world. The ego understands only that which it can grasp; “I am safe because I have a house, money, food in the fridge” is typical ego reasoning. Putting security in that which can be seen is what the ego does. Either or – thinking is typical of the ego as well. It thrives on comparison.”Why does he get that & I don’t?” is a familiar tune from the ego music library. For the ego it might be hard to understand that if I am a child of the Universe, that by being special, nothing is being taken away from anyone. If you feel yourself to have a big ego & you’ve been beating yourself up about it – you can stop now. Lots of ego energy just means lots of energy potential to be channeled into your heart, to be used for compassion, service & healing. This can be done through working with selfless service (Nothing refines your ego like putting your own needs aside!), meditation, yoga, or other spiritual practices. If you’ve been repressing your ego, you can stop it now. Let yourself feel your stomach area. Strengthen your abdominal muscles. Do an intestinal cleanse. You might have some shame issues or anger issues to work through as you allow your sense of self to awaken. Let yourself discover your uniqueness. And from that point, start your expansion into recognizing the miracle within all.

A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell.  He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups & set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard.As he was driving the last nail into the post he felt a tug on his overalls.
He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.
 "Mister," he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies" 
"Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat
 off the back of his neck, "These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."
The boy dropped his head for moment.
 Then reaching into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"
"Sure," said the farmer.
 A "Here, Dolly!" he called.
Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran
 Dolly followed by four little balls of fur.
The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed 
something else stirring inside the doghouse.
Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward others, doing its best to catch up...

"I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt. The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would."
With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers.In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.
Looking back up at the farmer, he said, "You see sir, I don't run too well myself, and he will need someone who understands."
With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup.

Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.

"How much?" asked the little boy... "No charge," answered the farmer, "There's no charge for love."

The world is full of people who need someone who understands.

READ SOMEWHERE ,LIKE TO SHARE... The sense of feeling bored in life can be an indicator that we need to be proactive in creating change. Sometimes we feel that things aren’t moving along fast enough for us & that the world is passing us by. It may be that time seems to stand still & that we are simply bystanders in our own lives. Other times it might appear that there is nothing new left for us to experience & that we are locked into a never-ending cycle of static state. If we take the time to listen to these feelings we will notice that there is probably more going on beneath the surface, like our apprehension to venture out into the unknown. By taking a new look at how we live our lives, however, it will be easier to break through our sense of boredom & enter into a more positive state of being. When life seems monotonous, it is usually an indication that there is something we need to change. Boredom can easily lead us down the path to despondency. Acknowledging our feelings & then setting the intention to alter just one small thing in our life can give us a much more affirmative outlook. This act of change allows us to step outside of ourselves & discover new & exciting things that are often already present in our everyday lives. Simple things such as eating a healthier diet, taking a new class, or joining a club are all ways in which we can go beyond our comfort zone & explore the wonders that exist all around us. Keep in mind that the moment we do something different from our usual routine, the more fresh energy, hope &blessings we will manifest in our life. What this means is that we’ll no longer see things as being tedious but will instead realize the preciousness of everything. Being able to integrate these subtle changes on a daily basis allows us to recognize the miracles that are our lives. Even though we may think of change as doing something life-altering or drastic, gentle transitions from our habitual ways of doing things & an appreciation of all life offers us will truly bring about positive & lasting transformation.

READ SOMEWHERE, LIKE TO SHARE...Shifting the Mood - Attitude Follows Perspective We all have to do things in our life that we don't want to & the easiest solution is with to change our attitude. We all have days when we are faced with chores, errands, or responsibilities that we don’t want to do. At times like these, it’s easy to get into a bad mood & stay in one as we tackle these tasks. However, given the fact that our bad mood will not change the fact that we have to do these things, & will most likely make things worse, we could also try to shift our attitude. Many wise people have pointed out that it is not so much what we do as it is how we do it that makes the difference in our lives. It’s important when we’re facing something that’s really hard for us, whether it’s doing taxes, paying bills, or visiting a challenging relative, that we lovingly support ourselves through the process. The more supported we feel, the easier it is to open our minds to the idea that we could change our way of looking at the situation. In truth, most of the chores we don’t like doing are intimately intertwined with our blessings. When we remember this, we feel gratitude, which makes it hard to stay in a dark mood. We can shift our attitude by considering how much we love our home as we clean it & how lucky we are to have a roof over our head. Any task can be transformed from a burden to a necessary aspect of caring for something we love. All we have to do is shift our perspective & our attitude follows shortly behind.

Read some where, like to share.... What is to be done to protect peace and joy in one’s life? The epic Ramayana was sparked off by two little incidents involving two minor characters – the resentment of Kaikeyi’s maid Manthara & the lust of Ravana’s sister, Surpanakha. Be aware that a tiny spark of these two inimical qualities desire & anger (kama & krodha), is sufficient to destroy peace & joy in your life. Weed them out before they destroy you. Work hard to clear your mind from of all its likes & dislikes. If you succeed in restraining their flow towards the objective world, your senses will be rendered ineffective. Once you accomplish the extinction of the mind, these evil qualities cannot harm you & you will remain in joy & peace. Sensory activity is the warp as well as the woof of the mind. When that ceases, the mind vanishes – it starves & dies. When your mind is filled with good thoughts, such as truth, love, forbearance & compassion, your life will be filled with peace & serenity.
