Managing Personal Change

 

 

This article I’ve written delivers information about managing personal change.  I’d like to point out that while cannabis creates homeostasis from which all other health benefits can come, one still needs to look at personal lifestyle choices to create health and wellness.  This is particularly true for those suffering from chronic physical conditions, and those with PTSD and anxiety. Finally, after the article, I hope you will enjoy the meditation I have provided to assist you with grounding and staying in the moment.

 

In the midst of personal change, fear can often erupt. Worry then ensues. These two things, fear and worry, serve no positive purpose in managing change. Well really, they serve no positive purpose in any part of our lives.

So how does one limit the fear and worry when change is happening and an inevitable part of life?
The mind is the most important piece of the puzzle to maintaining rationality and making decisions that will achieve a positive change. When you have your mind right and are staying positive and rational, you can do anything! Your mind tells you what needs to be done. Listen to it, but only with a rational tone. If it starts running away with itself it’s time to rope it in and bring it into balance. Fear and love are inversely proportional. So reduce the fear about the change by showing yourself love and kindness. You could do any or all of the following: Take some time to exercise, go for a walk, ride your bike, walk your dog, or practice deep breathing, Make sure you are nourishing your body, and are eating for health. Try some simple meditation. Remind yourself that you have a 100% track record for getting through other changes in your life. If you can, write some positive affirmations on pieces of paper and put them around your house where you can see them. These things will keep your mind positive and rational.

Once you feel you have decreased the fear and worry sufficiently, then ask yourself, “what do I need to accomplish to get through this change?” This is the action that is necessary to make the change. So answer your question! Start a list of these things with everything you can think of. Even if the list is starting to get long, don’t allow that to increase your fear and worry again. This is a list of things you will do over time. You may want to put time frames on each item if that will help you to sort out the time you need to get through the change you are making. You are in the drivers seat of this change. You are not a victim, and it is not driving you!

The fact is, this change might just help you onto the path that you really want. Check in with yourself about that, and about what you heart is wanting, what your higher self is needing, what your true self feels about the change that you are making. It is a good idea to journal these thoughts to help you sort them out. If journaling doesn’t work for you, then sit quietly and sort out what you feel about the change with regard to your life path, your heart and your higher self. By taking the time to feed the heart and soul, and listen to it, you will find that your head will continue to decrease in fear and worry.

As I said at the start, change in life is inevitable. We can only control our reaction to it, and how we manage it. When we do this, we are caring for and loving ourselves. This is an essential element of good health and well-being.

Eat Cannabis: Take back your health America!

I have found that in my journey to take back my health many people question how cannabis can help them if they do not with to smoke it. When cannabis is smoked, it is rapidly taken into the lungs and the THC in it rapidly affects the brain via the bloodstream. When it is ingested, the effect is slower, but perhaps even more powerful on the health of the body. Now, I am not personally opposed to smoking it. It has a rapid effect by latching on to the cannabinoid receptors in the body and therefore will decrease pain and anxiety quickly. There are times when this is necessary and needed.
Does smoking cannabis cause lung cancer? I poured through many articles and studies on this, and from what I have read, it is still not known. Some articles say it does not contribute to cancer at all. Some say it fights cancer even if smoked. The fact is, cannabis has many properties such as the THC and CBD’s that are non carcinogenic and even cancer fighting. It is not like smoking tobacco because the nicotine in tobacco promotes the development of cancer. The fact is, I could not find one article that definitively linked cannabis smoking to cancer. If you are not convinced though, ingesting cannabis by eating it may be your route of choice to improve your health condition or health in general.
Cannabis can reduce heart disease, cancer risk, insulin dependent diabetes and general inflammation in the body. I am living proof of this. When I came off of my pharmaceutical medication, I replaced it mainly with medicinal cannabis. I also use some other herbal treatments regularly. The interesting thing is, that when I was on the pharmaceutical medications I still had abnormal tests for inflammation in my body. I have psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, a history of dermatomyositis, all of the symptoms of myasthenia gravis, heart disease, and diabetes. After being on my new regimen with daily cannabis use ingesting it in my food and smoking it as needed, my inflammation tests were normal for the first time since my 20’s. I have also come off of the insulin I was taking for diabetes. The insulin I had to be placed on from the use of steroids to treat the dermatomyositis. With pharmaceutical use, one medication often leads to the next due to side effects. I do not have that problem with cannabis use.
I eat cannabis by infusing olive oil and cooking it into my meals. You can also juice it, make into an oil, or make it into a tincture. If you choose to make oil or butter, then you can cook it into anything that calls for fat such as cookies, brownies, cake, or biscuits. I also ingest cannabis oil daily.
For me, the use of cannabis has improved my health tremendously. I feel that eating it has the most benefits. My next step is to try raw juicing it as some people feel that this has the most benefits. In any case, I will not remove this important medicinal herb from my diet because I have seen the amazing results with improvements to my inflammation levels, heart disease and cholesterol levels, weight loss, reduced anxiety and depression symptoms, reduced PTSD symptoms, improved A1C tests for diabetes and improved eye problems. And I am not alone. Please do your research and consider adding it to your diet today.

Change Your Mind: Bulldozer Remedy for Health #1, Part Deux

 

When you decide to change your mind, it happens very quickly. The instant you make the change, you will know it.  It is like a switch flips in your head, and you see the world with more clarity and more positivity. When I say change your mind, I mean step outside your preconceived notions to a more positive perspective.  This is the root of positive change in your life.

Though the change of the mind happens in an instant, it really is a long-term project.  It is important to realize that, and understand that whatever your age is, that is how long it took you to bring your mind to where it is now. So it will take some time to make changes for the better. Especially when you are changing habits to make yourself a healthier person.  The old saying, “old habits die-hard” may apply here.  But though that may be true, you must remember that you are an evolving, changing being.  Sure, you can fight that, by  planting your feet in one spot. But know that when you do that, there  is no movement and you can’t allow change. So inject some movement, and look at all options in every situation. Look at different perspectives.  Talk to others in a given situation and listen to their perspective, to see that life really is about perspective. Watch, listen and learn, always staying open to new information and ways of handling things.

So, if you’ve decided to change your mind for the positive, and you are watching, listening and learning you must also map out how you will continually increase your positive thinking.  Will you start to do some meditation to open your mind and/or clear it?  Will you make sure you get some sunshine everyday?  Can you take the time to write down at least one blessing everyday?  Will you say positive affirmations?  These are some examples of putting your decision into action.

You see, you must be sure that you keep moving your mind to the positive with every day that passes. You must not waiver on your decision to change your mind.  If you are presented with a challenge, train yourself to look at it as just that.  And tell yourself that it is only a bump in the road.  If you hit a roadblock, find a way around it.  We all tend to make mountains out of mole hills at times. That kind of thinking though, doesn’t help you to a peaceful and more positive life.   Perspective and looking for the lessons and silver linings will.  In every situation, those are present. You just have to train yourself to look for them instead of focusing on the negative.   If you get stuck, talk to a positive friend or acquaintance about the situation and possible avenues to the positive.  Or go  within and ask the Universe to help you find it. Or take a walk and step outside of it so you can gain a different perspective.

I know that change isn’t easy.  Ask yourself the following question though.  Has my current train of thought brought me to where I want to be in life?   Only you know the answer to that question.  And only you hold the key to positive change in your own life.  Change your mind, and then take the steps to do what needs to be done.

Yes. I have said it before, and I will say it again.  Change your mind, change your life.

Peace,
