8 Tips to Achieve Self Empowerment

Tip 1: Take notice of how you talk about your health. Your words become your destiny. The words you speak go into your own ears. They literally land in your body, and your cells respond. Instead of speaking about any dis-ease or dis-ability, speak positively about what you are capable of doing and how you are supporting yourself, and you will become as healthy as your words.

Tip 2: There is a direct connection between the brain and the gut. Our thoughts and experiences directly affect both therefore, addressing both in healing is vital. By now you probably know how important your gut health is to your overall health. If not, you need to! 80 percent of your immune system is in your microbiome, your body’s bacteria, which help your body with just about every process, including helping you to digest your food, think clearly and even maintain a healthy weight.

Tip 3: Listen to what your body is telling you. Listening to your body is the easiest way to create health daily. Ideally you will listen to your body before dis-ease sets in. If you are already experiencing symptoms, pay attention to what they are telling you. Acknowledge that you may need to make some changes. Allow space for your emotions to surface and be released.

Tip 4: Be still and feel the peace.  The power of prayer and meditation absolutely adds healing and circulation to the brain, gut and heart. The health benefits of a daily meditation practice are significant, including decreased cortisol, weight loss, decreased anxiety, lower heart rate, and even less pain.  So basically any health condition that is worsened by stress – which is all of them! – can be helped with meditation. Your meditation practice does not have to be a long or involved. Just sitting with your eyes closed or slightly open and focusing on your breath for ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before you go to bed will benefit your health.

Tip 5: Give yourself a permission slip to be who you truly are meant to be. When you give yourself permission, you are trusting yourself to make choices. There is an all-knowing consciousness inside you, at all moments, guiding you toward your highest good. This includes what medical tests or procedures are best for you. The more you can connect with this guidance, and the more you listen to it, the easier it will be to give yourself permission.

Tip 6: Love and Cherish Yourself. Matt Kahn’s approach works wonders here. Place your hand on your heart and say “I love You. You’re precious. You’re beautiful. I forgive you. I truly love you.” Do this exercise every day as often as you need.  Watch Matt’s You Tube video “The End of Victimhood” or learn more at his website, http://www.truedivinenature.com about how to raise your vibration even when you are around negative people.

Tip 7: Keep Relaxing Your Brain. The brain has to have glucose and oxygen for healing and survival. Daily deep breathing and watching blood sugar levels are a must. Deep diaphragmatic breathing brings increased amounts of oxygen into your lungs and helps to give your body more vital energy. Belly breathing massages your internal organs and helps improve digestion.

Tip 8: Keep an upbeat attitude. Teach yourself some skills that can help you develop a greater sense of optimism and resilience.. We all have to deal with difficult people and difficult situations. But don’t let life harden your heart! There’s a reason for the expression “Get it off your chest.” Let go of anger and resentment, and move towards joy. Embrace new ideas and meet new people.
