Gratitude is essential to bring a deeper meaningful connection within life. Gratitude leads to your own inner profound transformation. Ancient philosophers and sages from different spiritual traditions have emphasized cultivating gratitude. It is a fundamental pillar for experiencing, developing and sustaining that inner peace, fulfillment and happiness.
In relation to mental health, gratitude and spirituality may be helpful to individuals experiencing anxiety and depression in response to a loss. The emotion of gratitude involves the feeling of appreciation, and creates a pleasant overall feeling. The perception of what is sacred, (people, experience, situation or the divine), elicits the emotions of gratitude and increase the amplitude of how they feel. This combination of spirituality and gratitude increases their ability to cope, creating a positive mindset and becoming more resilient to suffering.
Gratitude is an emotion that fills your heart. When practiced on a daily basis...
We are dealing with unpredictability, chaos and unknowns. People are
feeling unsettled and less in control. It is more important now than ever to be
socially connected, this is a need of our spirit. By depriving ourselves of this we will
be creating more emotional, mental and spiritual distress. Creating more distress is
a downhill spiral for our wellbeing and health.
So How can we ride this wave of turbulence like a skilled surfer and perfectly be in
harmony with the wave?
Here are a few practical tips that may help you prevent yourself from falling into the
depths of the dark fearful ocean.
Have you experienced loss that sometimes you don't have the words to express?
Has disconnection caused heartache and pain that is unbearable?
Do you try and find meaning and sense in grief?
Grief can arise in many different situations in our lives. We can lose loved ones, relationships, our sense of meaning, purpose and identity, or the job we loved. We can experience grief as feeling like we don't belong in the world. Communities can grieve the loss of land and ocean spaces
We can experience grief seeing others in pain and suffering. Grief is a human emotion and experience, that is unsettling to the heart, mind and soul. Finding meaning in grief is crucial to healing.
There is no set time frame or limit to how long grief persists. It varies culturally and also historically. In some cultures the ceremonies carried out for passing of a loved one is a process which takes sometimes days or weeks and in others, it may be a few days. All for very valid...
Have there been times in your life when you have felt like you have failed as a parent, friend, child, student, worker? Do the feelings of failure overwhelm you and knock your confidence to the point where you lose motivation? Has failure ever driven you to do better? Are their moments when you have self reflected on seeming failures and realized these moments were moments of growth?
We have all experienced the feelings of failure. Failure to complete a project, failure to make a sports team, failure to 'raise our children right,' failure to pass exams, Failure to be that good friend or wife etc..
However, these moments in our lives require perspective within the context of a life's journey and also reflection on who has set and determined the criteria for what constitutes 'success.' For every seemingly failure we are reminded of, there are stories in our lives that have brought us and others joy. The infamous story of Michael Jordan, basketball player, who never made the...
“Life is meaningless”
Maybe this is something you have said to yourself or there is someone close to you or who you have taken care of who have utter these words.
There are many ways to approach this.
The thing that pops up in my head is, what meaning is being referred to? How can I clarify what exactly “meaning” may mean.
When I do this I find it sets up the foundation for clearer communication and less judgement. Meaningless is like we lost our “so what?” and don’t know where to look to gain that value back.
As humans we are unlikely to be truly content with any purpose of our existence. It has to be something that is aligned with your meaning, your deeper held values. Something that you believe in.
So believing in something is an innate core part of us that has powerful motivation to bring about a more fulfilling life. Life becomes more fun, relationships are improved, and now when...
When we accept ourselves unconditionally we are loving ourselves completely. To love all facets of who we are, is to accept our whole being, our spirit begins to thrive and we can have the realisation we are made perfectly imperfect. This sets the path, for being able to also show more compassion and love to others and their imperfections. Creating more fulfilling relationships that we can treasure and have more respect and admiration for our own work. Our imperfections are part of our mental and spiritual growth.
"Nurture, nourish and cherish that person whom you will have to live with for the rest of your life, yourself."
