The Healing Power of Prayer

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

There are a great many coping techniques for stressful times; some effective, some ineffective (such as drinking, drugs and violence, for example). For a coping technique to be effective it should increase awareness of the problem and lead one down the path of resolution. Effective coping skills involve shifting the perception of “a threat” to something non-threatening. Prayer (also know as intention) in all its many forms, has been an effective coping technique since time began. Whether one offers words of thanks or cries for help, praying to someone or something bigger than ourselves offers a way to step outside the ego (stress), which after all, is what effective coping techniques are all about! Joseph Campbell noted in his study of stories and myths told over time, that there is what he called, the assistance of spiritual aids, whether they be angles, fairies, elves, gods, or perhaps some divine inner resources. Prayer is the hotline to the divine! As my friend, colleague and mentor Larry Dossey warns, “Be careful for what you pray for… you might just get it.” There has been much research (both pro and con) about the “effects” or out comes of prayer. But don’t put your faith (or skepticism) in somebody’s else’s work. Check it out this coping technique for yourself.

• Stress Tip For The Day
While everyone prays in their own way, are there better ways to pray?
Author Sophy Burnhan (A Book of Angels) offers a suggestion regarding prayer, which seems identical to what is taught in guided mental imagery:
1. Pray in the positive
2. Pray in the present moment
3. Offer thanks & gratitude
4. Detatch from the outcome
So today, consider this format during your next conversation with the Divine (whatever you conceive this to be), and while you’re at it, please put in a good healing request for the Gulf oil spill. Thanks!

While in Turkey this summer, one of our hosts gave me a set of prayer beads. As he placed these in my hands he smiled and said proudly that they had been to Mecca, ensuring their authentic connection to the divine. The last day of the trip was spent in Istanbul. This photo was taken of a man sitting by the spice bazaar using his prayers beads (also called “worry beads”).

Be The Change You Wish to See in the World!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Not a day goes by where I don’t hear someone comment about how fast the world is changing. Technology grabs most of the attention (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, etc). Right behind technology, however, are environmental issues (e.g., the Gulf oil spill, global warming, over-fished oceans, etc.) and of course, our current economic issues. Which change, comes fear, and fear triggers the fight or flight (stress) response. Prolonged or chronic stress often manifests in rude, sarcastic, impatient, cynical and apathetic behavior. I once overheard a conversation suggesting that everyone is taking part in a “consentual hallucination.” Great phrase, and at times very accurate. Its hard to distinguish between the nightly news and entertainment. Politicians lie, constantly. Social etiquette seems to be a thing of the past. The good news is that we have a choice. We can either become/remain passive victims in a cruel world or take the high road and do our part to make the world a better place. In this day and age, this means unplugging regularly from the steady stream of ”cyberese” and move from a motivation of fear toward a motivation of love and compassion. In simple terms, its time to wake up!

• Stress Tip For The Day
Gandhi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” He also said his life was his message. What message does your life broadcast to the world? Does your life portray a message of stress…or of compassion? Do you feel like you are a slave to technology rather than technology serving you? Stop and take a look at your life then start making a few subtle changes to be the change you wish to see around you.

• Links/Books/Movies Worth Noting:
Over the weekend I went to go see the movie, Inception. While many went to see it regarding the twisted plot and ending, I went with a curiosity to see how the unconscious mind was portrayed. I recommend the movie, but know that corporate America, while not so invasive, already has the concept of “Inception” down really well in the American culture and they don’t need to enter your dreams to plant a message to buy their products.

Dog Days of Summer!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

A friend sent this to me a few days ago. I thought it was worth sharing.

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
…Then You Are Probably The Family Dog!

• Stress Tip For The Day
Take life a little less seriously today and be inspired by our canine friends!

• Links/Books Worth Noting:
Someone sent me a link to a website that had scores of photos of dog owners who dress their dogs up in 4th of July outfits. I couldn’t find that website this morning but the link below is equally as bad. Please don’t do this to your dog!

Simplicity Rules!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I received an email from a friend of mine the other day. He was informing all his “friends” that to simplify his life, he was closing down his Facebook account. From now on, he said, he would welcome communication via emails, phone calls and snail mail. The END! No tweets! No Skype! No Facebook updates! No IM’s! His message was a clarion call to simplify his life. A recent story on NPR spoke of how people are feeling overwhelmed with all the information venues to communicate (and not getting much else done trying to keep up with it all). One expert suggested an “Internet Sabbath.” Various news reports confirm that people have really sloppy boundaries when going on vacation (hauling their blackberries, lap tops, cell phones, Ipads, etc.) just to stay “in touch.” Experts predict a huge backlash is coming with all this technology, and perhaps it has started. Technology isn’t bad, but we were never meant to be “plugged in” all the time. Technology becomes bad when one has an ego addiction to check in continually to get a fix on feeling accepted, updated, etc. Today people are having a difficult time being alone without a computer screen. The implications are not good. Time to simplify!

• Stress Tip For The Day:
Are you feeling stressed with all the means to communicate these days? Does your life seem more complicated now than it did 10 years ago? Do you spend more time with virtual friends and less (perhaps hardly any) with real friends and family? Time to makes some changes! Time to simplify your life! Time to instill some healthy boundaries, perhaps take a weekend Sabbath from the Internet, and/or unplug while going on vacation. Pick one area in your life today and simplify it!

Greed Is Not A Spiritual Value!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

As a child, my mother often read stories to me from Aesop’s Fables. One that comes to mind periodically when I hear various news stories is the fable of The Dog and the Bone. A quick review: A hungry dog finds a luscious bone and walks home proudly with the prize in his mouth. On the way home he sees a pond. Walking to the water’s edge, and not recognizing his reflection, he only focuses on the second, mouth-watering bone. In an effort to grab it and have two bones in his possession, he drops the one in his mouth in the water and it sinks, leaving him with no bones whatsoever. Greed is the ego’s desire for more; more of anything, but typically money and all things “material.” Greed is a fear-based thought process, and hence a stress-prone behavior. Greed often leaves others with less (and often not enough). Today’s news is filled with stories of greed, from the ENRON debacle to the banking industry (and near collapse of the economy), to politicians to multi-national corporations. The average person is no different. Under stress, greedy behavior can be observed in just about everybody. Given the status of the world today, greed is quite unbecoming. And given the choice between greed and altruism, there really is no choice. Finally, as the saying goes, “If money is the root of all evil, what is the root of money?” Could it be greed?

• Stress Tip For The Day
Are you perpetually keeping up with the Joneses? Stop and ask yourself how many times you have looked at the “second bone” with envy? Are you a fear-based thinker stuck in a financial survival mode of thinking that ends up sabotaging your best efforts, and perhaps losing clients, customers and friends in the process? Do you grab the steak and toss the bone to others? Count your blessings today (and every day) and recognized fear (and the greed it breeds) for what it is. Given something back today instead of taking something extra. Take the high road instead! It may be more work, but the views are great! Remember, greed is not a spiritual value!

• Links/Books Worth Noting:
Every now and then it’s nice to remind ourselves of the works of luminaries who’s light guides the way for others. This link is a reminder that we too can walk the path of altruism, not greed:

Death Becomes You

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The topic of death can bring about a lot of stress—specifically fear (even anger in some cases.) In fact, the fear of death is thought to be the “mother of all fears.” The topic of death brings about it much uncertainty, hence the fear of the unknown as well. One thing is certain; there is no escaping death, everyone had to deal with it— eventually. Despite this fact, people, by and large, tend to avoid the topic of death. There are even a great many stories and interesting movies on this theme. In America, death has become very sanitized. When someone dies, the body gets whisked away to a hospital or mortuary, often times never to be seen again (only the casket). A recent trip to Ireland revealed a whole different approach to death. The Irish (like many other cultures) embrace death. Rather than running from it, they see death as a natural part of the life cycle. We were told that the Irish wake is a celebration. Renowned psychiatrist, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross (the woman who was the catalyst for today’s hospice movement) developed her whole career teaching people about death and dying. “Death,” she said, ”is nothing to be afraid of. We must learn to embrace death, and in doing so, we embrace life.” Do you embrace death or do you run from it? Do you have a will (over 70 percent of Americans don’t)? Do your family members actually know your “last requests?” We many never have all the answers about death and the hereafter, but by learning to embrace death, indeed we learn to embrace life.

“We are all visitors to this time and place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love, then we return home.”
—Aboriginal saying

• Stress Tip For The Day
Take a moment to write down your thoughts and feelings about death. Learn to recognize and then resolved any thoughts and feelings you may have about death and dying. Some people fear death so much that they never have a will drawn up. This in turn, causes a lot of stress for those left behind. So consider taking time to prepare a will, and a living will. There are some on-line services that can get you started (see below) or you can always call an estate planner who specializes in this service. This topic is bigger than one blog entry can every address, yet the topic of death is one that we need to face, not avoid.

Embrace the Shadow

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We each have a dark (less than flattering) side that negatively influences our personalities and behavior. This dark side goes by many names, all of which are related to the ego. Carl Jung referred to the dark side of the ego as “The Shadow” and he advised us to tame the ego, not run from it or avoid it. His expression was to “embrace the shadow.” Embracing the shadow means to recognize our prejudices, our insecurities and our imperfections and work to resolve them. Only by doing this, he said, can we come to terms with our dark side and shed some light on it, thus evolving our consciousness and the soul growth process. While some people avoid their dark side (denial) others exploit it, as reflected in the commonly heard phrase by bosses: “I don’t have stress, I give stress (to people).” Embracing the shadow is a metaphor for moving from a motivation of fear toward a motivation of love and compassion. Shedding some light on the ego is but one way to “domesticate the ego” and finding the essential balance of inner peace in one’s life. In doing so, the beast sheds its ugly face and reveals the true beauty of the soul.

• Stress Tip For The Day
When describing ways to domesticate the ego, I usually come up short, that is, until I came across this passage written by Sam Levenson, and used by actor, Audrey Hepurn. It was read at her memorial service by her son Sean, and has since become known as:

Audrey Hepburn’s Beauty Tips
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.”
— Sam Levenson

• Quote for the Day:
“When we must deal with problems, we instinctively resist trying the way that leads through obscurity and darkness. We wish to hear only of unequivocal results, and completely forget that these results can only be brought about when we have ventured into and emerged again from the darkness. But to penetrate the darkness we must summon all the powers of enlightenment that consciousness can offer.” —Carl G. Jung

Honesty!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The truth is that stress can make liars out of all of us. Ask yourself this question, Why do people lie? Stated simply, people lie because of insecurities; unresolved feelings of anger (fight), fear (flight) or both. Freud might say that lying is a defense mechanism of the ego, and he’d be right. Children lie to get out of trouble. So do adults! Martha Stewart lied (perjury) and spent time in jail for it. We lie (big, small, black, white) because we are stressed, or in some cases trying to avoid stress (as in “white lies”), yet perhaps causing more stress down the road. Corporations lie. Politicians lie (some would say, all the time). They say what people want to hear, yet are we any different? To be honest with your thoughts and feelings is no small undertaking. Its a daily challenge. Some people are “brutally honest.” They have yet to learn the art of diplomacy. You can be honest and tactful. You can also be honest and funny (Chaucer was right when he said, “Many a truth be told in jest.”) Honesty and inner peace are not incongruent. To the contrary, they form a symbiotic relationship. Honesty seems to be a rare commodity these dsys, but it doesn’t have to be!

• Stress Tip For The Day
Take an honest look at your thoughts and feelings. Take an honest look at how you express yourself to others. Are your words coated in a film of anger, fear or both? Are you ever the diplomat when you speak your words honestly? Take steps to refine the art of diplomatic honesty, (one way is to attack issues, not people.) Honesty will serve you well in dealing with your own levels of stress today and every day.

Creativity & Creative Problem Solving

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

There is no shortage of problems these days; the BP Gulf oil spill, global warming, economic woes, etc., etc… From an individual perspective, there is no shortage of personal problems either; childcare, mortgage payments, health issues, home improvements and so on. Every problem, however, has a solution. In fact, every problem has several solutions. Creativity is one of the greatest attributes on the human condition. Creativity isn’t a right brain activity; it’s a whole brain activity. It begins in the right brain, searching for ideas, combining possibilities, and playing with ideas. Then the left brain comes in and selects the best idea and then makes it happen. Imagination + Perspiration = success! The creative process is very liberating, and as such very empowering. But many people claim NOT to be creative, particularly under stress. Their egos get in the way of the creative process and they metaphorically paint themselves into a corner, claiming victimization. Creative problem solving is one of THE most powerful coping techniques for stress. The arc of creative problem solving begins with an idea, and ends with the celebration of the success of the idea. Remember: Imagination + Perspiration = Success!

• Stress Tip For The Day
What problems have been haunting you for the past several weeks? Chances are there are many viable solutions to your problem; solutions that can get you out of your rut and put you back on the road again. Pick a problem (e.g., what to make for dinner tonight, getting out of debt or finding a dog sitter while on vacation, etc.). Come up with at least five (5) viable ideas to help solve this problem. Also… think of one zany, off the wall idea. Then select the best idea and make it happen.

• Links/Books Worth Noting:
There are two books I think should be issued to each human upon exiting the birth canal’ Roger von Oech’s A Whack on the Side of the Head and A Kick in the Seat of the Pants. These book on creativity should be required reading for everyone who has stress.

Speaking of problems, I was sent this link about the BP oil spill… and felt the need to pass it along. Please watch it.

When The Pupil Is Ready….

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Are you feeling the pinch of techno-stress? This is the overwhelming sensation of being pulled in 10 different directions (including, but not limited to, cell phone calls, Facebook updates, Tweets, email avalanches, etc.… the list goes on and on.) Sensory bombardment is a given these days, but we do not have to be passive (perhaps addictive) victims in a cyber world. Last week Newsweek magazine had a list of several ways to bring balance back into one’s life starting with getting rid of one’s Smart phone. Technology isn’t bad, yet the overuse of sure is. And you can tell when people are pulled in different directions. They are impatient, rude, cynical, frazzled, sarcastic, fatigued, anxious, etc. etc. etc. There is an ancient Chinese proverb that say, “When the student is ready, the teacher will come.” The implied message is that we are both the student and the teacher. The teacher is a metaphor for the deep-seated wisdom that only reveals itself when the student (the conscious mind) is quiet. The mind cannot be quite when it’s pulled in ten different directions, or two for that matter. These days, navigating the world, cyber or otherwise, requires taking time to get the pupil ready.

• Stress Tip For The Day
Take time each day to sit quietly and focus on your breathing. Turn of the technology, close yours and only focus on one thing: your breathing. If your mind wanders (and most likely it will) bring it back to the sole focus of your breathing. This is but one way to get the pupil ready. Meditation or centering is not a religion, it’s a tool used world-wide for mental (and physical) homeostasis.

• Links/Books Worth Noting:
There are hundreds of books out there on the topic of meditation and many many more that offer a focus or theme for the day, including 365 Tao, Earth Prayers, and The Promise of a New Day. Check out these books at your local bookstore and pick one up that speaks to you and use the designated passage for the recommended day as a stepping stone to your health.
