1) ALIGNING WITH YOUR HIGHER SELF
By Leslee J. Klinsky
Many people in the world today are running blindly, haphazardly seeking their elusive higher Self and purpose with frustration levels that border on insanity. They feel so disconnected from life, people, and their callings that they change directions over and over
without thought or without pondering possible repercussions. They are fearful and anxious about life without knowing why, and this disconnection is a root cause of the present rampant pandemic of stress-related disorders.
With this in mind, the intent of this article is to provide a method to help you align with your higher Self through the wisdom of your body, and to recognize this connection when you achieve it. Once you align in this way, you are forever empowered. Your purpose becomes clear, you are on track, and your life begins to embrace a flow of grace and ease.
It is important to clarify at the onset that very few people know what it feels like to align with their higher Self. The idea of such personal clarity has plagued humankind from its patriarchal beginnings, though some obscured cultures have managed to retain some of their spiritual connectedness. The fact that you are among billions sharing the same spiritual
conundrum should become a source of consolation as you bravely pursue that which few have obtained but which is possible.
Your higher Self wants you to be happy and to feel connected all the time, though it may not always seem like it. You have been conditioned to believe that suffering and hardship are normal and necessary on the Earth plane, but this is not Truth.
You have also been conditioned to turn inconsequential events into fierce dramas to fill your days, weeks, months, and years. Believing that hardship and drama are necessary makes it so, and know that there are good reasons for your conditioning.
Your higher Self enjoys every experience that you have, but it also understands your earthly preferences and behavioral patterns that require more attention at the lower-frequency levels. Additionally, it is intimately aware of the lessons you incarnated to learn here and gently pushes you toward those goals.
It holds all your secrets and strengths steadfastly, waiting for your claim, but it is in no hurry. It is always aware of your eternal and multidimensional nature, though you may not be aware of it.
Key to Aligning with Your Higher Self
The key to aligning with your higher Self is very simple but rarely stated, mainly because such awareness is not encouraged widely at present. You align with your higher Self by intimately getting to know how your body feels when you are in alignment. Then, when you know that feeling, you work toward maintaining it by controlling the direction of your thoughts. All positive or negative bodily feelings are rooted in your thoughts, and these are either in alignment with your higher Self or not. When your body feels as good as it can be, your thoughts are in alignment with your higher Self; when your body feels “off” in any way, your thoughts are misaligned. That said, it is time to master the alignment key
to move forward in your life.
You have felt levels of joy, harmony, happiness, passion, peace, and exuberance in your life—no matter how fleeting—and it is at these times that you have been fully aligned with your higher Self. The difficulty is that people rarely think in terms of alignment when things are going their way. They are too busy enjoying life, which is, after all, the purpose of living. Usually people think in terms of alignment when they need it most, when it is most elusive.
Alignment with the higher Self feels different for each individual, but the result is the same. You know you are in alignment when your heart feels open and your body feels as good as it gets. Sometimes you may not feel your body at all, feeling light as air or like a gently floating balloon. There may be a sense of well-being and connectedness in your body plus a spark of creation. Or you may feel sudden passion or happiness with a gentle tingle up
your spine. No feeling is wrong. The bottom line is that you are on top of the world when you are in alignment with your higher Self, and your body mirrors this. Everything feels on course and you feel on purpose.
Because conditioning along ancestral, cultural, familial, and systemic lines is often difficult to assess and transcend on a strictly mental level, your best, truest gift becomes how your body feels at any given time. Your body is the most sensitive instrument at your disposal for determining whether you are in alignment with your higher Self, and it will serve you in amazing ways to get to know it.
Identifying Comforts and Discomforts
To learn to align, you first identify the comfort or discomfort level in the most sensitive part(s) of your body. Many people discern best in the stomach and other parts of the digestive tract; digestive problems are overwhelmingly caused by a mis-alignment with higher Self. Others
feel a heaviness, constriction, or pain at their heart when out of alignment. Still others experience tenseness in bodily areas like their shoulders or back. Some get headaches. What it ultimately comes down to is that your greatest bodily challenges are actually your greatest spiritual teachers.
Once you sense discomfort in your body, you align with your higher Self through some form of relaxed meditation or time out. You need to take some quiet time to learn what your higher Self is trying to teach you through your body. During times of discomfort, lay back, relax, and surrender deeply so you can learn and grow. Bravely ask your higher Self what your body is trying to teach you and sense the answer. You may see, feel, hear, taste, or smell the answer, depending on your sensing proclivities. Your intuition may come forth boldly and you will suddenly just know. The answer may come right away or it may come later when you least expect it. It is
imperative that you know that all questions are answered when you are ready, and no question put forth with honesty and benevolent intent is ignored.
Our higher Self teaches wonderful lessons and provides clarity constantly through the wisdom of your body, so get to know what your body feels like when you ask Yes or No questions. During meditation, ask yourself questions like the following:
Am I terrified of the future?
Is it in my best interest to work for this company?
Is my heart feeling closed because I am afraid of intimacy with my husband/work associates/other?
Is it in my best interest to pursue this relationship/course of action?
Should I be doing something other than what I am doing with my life?
Each time you ask yourself a question, your body reacts in one of two ways: 1) it reacts kindly in accordance with alignment (YES) or 2) it warns you that something is not right (NO or more questions
are necessary for clarification).
With practice, you can discern your Truth this way.
When you are comfortable that you can discern your body’s Yes and No answers, it is time to address issues that are more complex. In your relaxed meditative state, put forth a troubling situation to your higher Self. Explain the situation at hand in detail; write it down if that feels better. Then ask Yes or No questions about the issue raised. If your body feels aligned after you ask a question, the answer is an emphatic YES. If your body feels misaligned, the answer may be NO or further questioning may be necessary. Those who are persistent and patient enough can do question and answer sessions like this until they facilitate an explosive emotional and energetic release.
Once a lesson is learned, bodily discomfort and difficult feelings associated with it go away forever. Patience is required in this exercise.
Many are afraid to know their Truth—consciously or unconsciously—recognizing that the rug may be pulled out from under their lives if they learn it. The feeling is akin to the emotion in place prior to being fed into the jaws of some huge unknown creature with giant, knife-sharp fangs. Ask why you are afraid to know your Truth, and the answer will most likely surprise you. Please know that despite your misgivings, the unknown is a very powerful and necessary place; all creation comes forth from the unknown.
Some wonder whether there is danger in trusting the higher Self in all things, for they do not recognize what guides them and they do not trust themselves. Know that most have been taught that they are not trustworthy in one or more ways. Regardless of conditioning, however, your higher Self knows what needs accomplishing in your earthly realm, and it will not guide to that which is not possible within the confines of your current existence.
If it feels right in your body, it is right for you, period, regardless of what anybody else thinks. Get to know your higher Self through your body. It will be the best investment you ever make.
"At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are
and you know what you want."
2) LIGHT THERAPY IS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN PROZAC IN MAJOR DEPRESSION
By Dr. Michael Murray
Feeling SAD? New data shows that light therapy is more effective than Prozac on patients with significant depression.
Bright light therapy has a proven track record of success in the treatment of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), commonly referred to as the winter blues. A new study from the University of British
Columbia shows that this simple and safe therapy is effective for non-seasonal major depression. In fact, researchers showed light therapy was much more effective than fluoxetine (Prozac).
During the winter months, sufferers of SAD typically feel depressed; they generally slow down, oversleep, overeat, and crave carbohydrates. In the summer, these same people feel elated, active, and energetic. Although many variables may be responsible for SAD, the lack of exposure to full-spectrum natural light appears to be the most logical explanation. The antidepressive effects of full-spectrum light therapy have been demonstrated in well-monitored, controlled studies in SAD.
The typical protocol used in clinical studies involved using specialized light boxes providing full-spectrum fluorescent tubes vs. regular tubes. Patients were then instructed to sit three feet away from the light anywhere from 30 minutes a day,
up to three hours total, in morning and evening.
The antidepressant effect of light therapy is thought to be due to restoring proper melatoninsynthesis and secretion by the pineal gland leading to re-establishment of the proper circadian rhythm – the normal rhythm of hormone secretion that occurs each day.
Led by noted SAD and light therapy expert Raymond Lam, M.D., the UBC researchers randomly assigned 122 patients with major depression to either light therapy alone for 30 minutes a day; a placebo device, which did not provide full-spectrum lighting; the combination of light therapy plus fluoxetine, 20 mg a day; or the placebo device plus a placebo. Approximately 30 patients were enrolled in each of the four treatment groups.
All of the patients had a score of 20 or higher on two different standard scales of depression (HDS and MADRS) when the study started indicating significant depression.
Furthermore, the duration of the current major depressive disorder episode ranged from a low of 45 weeks to 90 weeks.
Light therapy consisted of 30 minutes a day of exposure to a full-spectrum fluorescent light box as soon as possible after awakening. At the end of the 8-week treatment interval, mean changes in the depression score from baseline (MADRS) were significantly greater among those who received bright light therapy alone, compared to fluoxetine alone. Most significant was that 43.8% of the patients getting the bright light therapy went into remission compared to only 19.4% of the subjects taking fluoxetine. Best results were seen with combination of bright light therapy and fluoxetine than for any of the other treatment groups with a 58.6% remission rate.
hese results show quite clearly that light therapy possesses an antidepressant effect even in non-seasonal major depression.
boxes similar to those used in clinical trials are available online and generally cost between $69 and $199. An alternative is to get outdoors in sunlight for 30 minutes a day or replace standard light bulbs with full-spectrum light bulbs in areas of your home or office where you spend a considerable amount of time.
Here are some other recommendations for SAD since it is that time of year:
Melatonin supplementation alone has produced mixed results in clinical trials in SAD. Nonetheless, some people do seem to respond to 2-3 mg of melatonin at bedtime and for further support in resetting their biological clock. I recommend taking the special form of vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) at a dosage of 3-5 mg the first thing in the morning.
Vitamin D3 is absolutely essential for proper brain chemistry and neurotransmitter action. To insure optimal vitamin D status during the winter months, most health experts, myself included, are advocating daily
dosages of 2,000 to 5,000 IU, even in apparently healthy adults.
John's Wort extract (SJWE) has shown to be very effective in reducing depression scores in patients with SAD and can be used to enhance the effects of the bright light therapy instead of standard antidepressant drugs. Typical dosage is 900 to 1,800 mg daily. Because SJWE can increase the activity of a drug detoxifying enzyme in the liver, it has been found to decrease the plasma concentrations of a long list of drugs. As a general rule, if you are taking any prescription medication, including birth control pills, do not take St. John's wort without approval from your physician.
