- Know that everything is happening “For you” not “To you.” Let go of the victim mindset and know that even in this situation something good is happening.
- “Accept” what is happening in the moment, even though you’d like it to be different. Acceptance… not “fighting against” the illness brings peace, peace helps the body work better. Acceptance doesn’t mean you are not working for change.
- Take time every day for a meditation practice.
- Learn to relax the body through breathing. The body heals when the body is relaxed. Everything works better in a relaxed body.
- Learn to relax and quiet the mind. This takes practice and a process.
- Make time for things and people you love. Re-order your values and where your time is spent.
- Forgive everyone and everything in your past.
- Visualize a healed body and what you will be doing when you feel better.
- Monitor your self-talk. Think positive thoughts of healing and what you’ll be doing when you’re well. Create thoughts of self-love and self-admiration.
- When fear and anxiety hits you, sit it out, breathe through it, and remember it’s not what is happening now- “In this moment everything is OK.” As the fear subsides, start to put your attention on the good that is happening and affirm your health.
- Surround yourself in a positive, supporting healing environment.
- This is a call for self love. Love yourself whole.
In an article I read recently, top human resources officers from global companies were asked what they see as the top ten job skills required by the year 2020 for workers to thrive.
One of those critical skills for success that made the top 10 list?
Wait for it … Emotional Intelligence.
According to Emotional Intelligence experts, E.I. has become an important predictor of job success, surpassing technical ability and intelligence in general.
What is emotional intelligence?
It’s about being smarter with feelings. Its about being more self-aware, more intentional, more purposeful, more empathetic.
In a nutshell, your emotional intelligence is your ability to be more responsive than reactive; more skilled in your inner world and in your ability to be with others. The higher your emotional intelligence, the more options and choices you really have in life.
One who has a high emotional intelligence has self awareness, can self regulate and manage their emotions, they take personal responsibility for what is triggering their emotions, they have the ability to boost their own inner motivation, have innate empathy and compassion for others and can sense what they are feeling. They have the ability to “put themselves in the shoes of another.” They have the social skills of being able to develop trust and rapport with others and develop self confidence.
YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE.
Your relationships, work partners and family will appreciate it- and
You will be happier.
Emotional intelligence is what happens as a result of personal and spiritual growth. True growth is the developing of the inner world. Meditation, mindfulness, emotional awareness and spiritual awareness are all the things that we teach, not only at the Oneness Center but to groups and individuals.
CHANGING YOUR MIND TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
These life skills, such as understanding the mind, how it works, how to use it, and developing the skills to quiet the mind and create space before reacting to triggered events, are the real skills that can make the biggest difference in your quality of life, healthy body, and handling stress.
By learning to live from your higher mind rather than the conditioned responses, you will grow in your own self awareness, creativity, intuition, peacefulness; and you can increase your money, work satisfaction, personal and family happiness.
Science is proving that the benefits of meditation are unmistakable.
And now, even top companies recognize the benefits. People from all walks of life are seeing the power of meditation, whether its in sports excellence, business success, creative enhancement, physical health, improved memory and sharpness of mind.
