Do you feel out of control or powerless?
What means do you use to empower yourself?
I have read countless threads on ATS and elsewhere about what is transpiring in the world and how bad the world is. I have myself posted threads
about what is transpiring and the corruption around, but what do you do to empower yourself.
Sitting by the computer for to long get many people tense, worked up, and drains everything in them mentally and physically, leaving a tired, tense,
and most likely run down immune system and body.
Can you change this state?
Answer: Yes, Absolutely.
I believe discipline is the key to empowering oneself?
Now what I mean by this is once you have found a way to center yourself, be it meditation, Yoga, Chi Gong, Tai Chi, Aerobics, etc.... ,continue your
discipline to empower yourself. Try not to get distracted and give your power away so easily.
I have found that empowering oneself is very easy, yes easy. It takes about 2 hours a day. 15 minutes in the morning, 1 hour workout, 15 minutes at
night and 30 minutes of meditation before bed. Most people laugh and say they don't have the time, but if I told you my schedule and
responsibilities you would tell me 2 hours is impossible, but it's not. I become stronger everyday, in mind, spirit, and physical body.
I have found that life slows down, I am able to think clearly, make good decision in spite of the chaos around me, I have empowered myself.
Life has thrown me many curve balls but I refuse to lay down and let the stresses around me drain who I am. Every time I get kicked down, I jump
right back up, dust myself off and continue on.
Many times in my life I allowed my physical state to rule me temporarily, but as soon as I realized I got a grip.
I had migraines for years, some so bad that I puked, could see straight and took medication, but i don't have any of that anymore.
Ask yourself this one question. What is in control of my life? My mind, My body or my higher self/ spirit? What I mean by all of this is do your
physical pains dictate your existence and rule your mind and higher self/ spirit, or does your tortured mental state control your body and higher
What should rule your world is the higher self/ spirit, this is the one that must be in control or the body and mind, so the body and mind must follow
what the Higher self dictates. Think about what is in control right now.
I don't think it matters what medium you choose to empower and center yourself, but what is important is that you have the discipline to follow it
through daily, without being distracted by the world. Allow the higher self to come through.
Ok, 2 hours impossible then 15 minutes in the morning of Yoga and 15 minutes before you sleep, I can assure you it will change your life completely,
then you can add other things into your schedule. Your whole being will change for the better. Again it doesn't have to be Yoga, maybe Chi Gong,
Tai Chi, but find a routine and stick with it.
The power I have found in myself is truly amazing, if any of you would like more information I will post some of the DVD's I use to walk me through
Yoga. I do 3 days Yoga and 4 days Chi Gong, then alternate the next week. In 30 days I felt like a new being, calm, peaceful, and not as quick to
get angry or overreact, in 60 days I felt like going to the gym and working out.
Your diet will change too. Your body will crave better foods.
