The Universes Delays Are Not The Universes Denials
ten steps on setting goals while developing patience
Have you ever wanted something so badly and it seemed that it was unobtainable or slow in coming to fruition? I think we all have. Sometimes during this process of longing it seems that it will never come true and eventually we slip into acceptance that it isn't going to happen and we don't deserve it. Welcome to impatience. Impatience can illicit feelings of always being dissatisfied, upset, and angry at yourself for your slow pace of growth and change. In a state of impatience it is easily lose your control and fire off outbursts of anger, temper, and blame on those who are slow to change and grow. Not dealing with impatience can result in becoming a member of the ``throw away'' generation, discarding relationships, people, jobs, and school whenever things are not working out as quickly as you want them to.
Today we are going to talk about ways you can start developing a greater level of patience. First and foremost remember, "The Universes delays are not The Universes denials".
What is patience?
Patience is the ability to let go of your need for immediate gratification while sitting back and waiting for an expected outcome without experiencing anxiety, tension, or frustration. Applying patience in interpersonal relations ships is to display tolerance, compassion, understanding, and acceptance toward those who are slower than you in developing maturity, emotional freedom, and coping abilities.
Develop a consistent philosophy of life. Take life one day at a time. Consider each day a gift of life that will allow you to get one step closer to your goal of growth and change.
Accept the reality of your humanity in that you are going to need time, effort, and energy to change and grow. You will experience some resistance to altering long standing, habitual ways of acting, reacting, and believing.
Reframe your perspective on the past, present, and future. Do not dwell on your past mistakes and failings. Do not worry about what you will become or how you will act in the future. Begin to live each new day as a fresh start.
Break larger goals down into components that are short term goals and objectives, more realistically attainable in the immediate future.
Plan your work and work your plan. Be systematic in planning your path to personal growth.
Accept, understand, and forgive yourself for being fragile, imperfect, and weak. You need to become your own best friend and cheerleader. Love yourself.
Wake up to the realities of life around you. Everyone with whom you come in contact is busy working through their own struggles, weaknesses, setbacks, relapses, crises, and obstacles to their personal growth. All of us are on the path to personal growth. There is no one exempt from this journey. It takes a lifetime to complete.
Confront your fears about attaining your goal. Remember, the world was not created in a day. Beautiful symphonies, works of art, and literary masterpieces were not created in a day. A lifetime is not lived in a day.
Practice meditation and contemplation. Meditation can come to the rescue when impatience takes control. Meditation induces relaxation which has been found to be a counter-balancing mechanism to a state of stress and impatience. Stress induced by impatience is created by the stimulation of the hypothalamus of the brain. Relaxation can be achieved by countering this stimulation - by stimulating other areas of the brain. This is achieved by doing meditation, which leads to state of deep rest, relaxation resulting in a great sense of patience.
Thank all of you for your patronage.
Have an excellent day.

the correlation between your car and body
When do people most often go to the doctor? Often when you're sick or broken down right? When do we take our cars in? Usually, it is a few times a year for oil changes and maintenance. Perhaps you have already heard the saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” If we are waiting for the oil in the tank to go dry before we take the car in, we will be faced with a more expensive and complicated problem, v.s. the simple routine oil change, that will keep things running smoothly. Like the analogy or not, it demonstrates the need for people to take a proactive approach to their own health care.
Sadly, statistics tell us that much of the cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. is due to medical expenses. Prevent bankruptcy by preventing disease! Much can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle. Now insurance companies are mandated to provide free health screenings to incentivize their clients to go to the doctor when they are well, for the simple routine check-ups, colonoscopies, mammograms, and more. Maybe you made excuses in the past, money, time, or didn't see the value of going in if you didn't have a problem, but as a holistic health care provider, I ask that you think differently, and focus on the prevention. Do your part, eat healthy, fruits, vegetables and protein and exercise regularly. When was your last blood work, do you know where your blood sugar levels and cholesterol are at? If the answer is, yes, good job! And if no, go get them tested so you know where you stand.
Naturopathic doctors (N.D's) can evaluate blood work from a functional perspective to not only decipher if you are heading into a disease range, but more importantly, are the levels optimal ? Are you getting the best bang for the buck, so to speak? We focus on educating their patients on how to get healthier and how to prevent the most common killers, heart disease and cancer, but obesity, diabetes, and Alzheimer's on the rise. Further, N.D.'s philosophy is to use nature's healing tools, as in nutraceuticals, botanicals and other non-invasive (or harmful) treatments to help correct health problems.
Take charge of your health, you only get this one body to live in, treat it well and it will reciprocate.
In Good Health & Beauty,

Opening Your Heart
finding your pathway to compassion
It is not easy to have an open heart in a world that offers us a full plate of experiences. This life gives us much joy, love, and light, but it also shows us a fair amount of pain, sadness, and suffering. When our hearts are open, we take everything into ourselves, and we are deeply affected by what we see. We do not hold ourselves separate from the pain of others. In addition, our own personal disappointments may begin to take their toll. We may feel small, alone, and overwhelmed. Most of us may feel like we are not up to the task of living with our hearts open, and we might begin to close down, little by little, so that we can get through our days without having to feel too much.
One thing that can help us turn this situation around is an awareness of the power of empathy. To open our hearts to another person’s suffering is a revolutionary act that has energetic implications. Many experiments with meditation have proven that we can reach far beyond the boundaries of our selves and heal others when our hearts are open. Heart meditations awaken this power and heal the person meditating as well as anyone who is the focus of the meditation.
You may want to experiment with this the next time you see or hear something painful. Instead of shuttering your emotions, resolve to hold your feelings in your heart. Tap into the divine energy of universal love that resides in your heart. This energy makes you powerful, for it is your protection that will transmute the pain of others. Breathe deeply, and let yourself feel the pain of the situation, knowing that your heart is big and strong enough to hold it. As you breathe, visualize healing light emanating from your heart and touching all that are suffering. You will heal your heart in the process.
