NATURAL HEALTH AND HEALING: Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old practice of healing and maintaining balance in one’s life.  Not only does Ayurveda cover the physical aspects, but it includes the mind and spirit.  The word Ayurveda actually mean ‘the science of life.’  This natural healing modality, as with all natural methods of healing, does not diagnosis disease in the way Western medicine does.

Ayurveda first wants to know who the patient is.  Not the name of the patient, but who they are by their constitution.  The are 3 main body types in Ayurveda, these are called constitutions or doshas.  Most people are a mixture of these 3; however, there will always be one that is dominant.  Ayurveda strives to bring balance to the whole person based on what their constitution or dosha is.

This amazing, ancient healing practice utilizes the use of herbs, yoga, meditation, massage, and breathing exercise to bring an individual back to their perfect balance. As with all other methods of natural healing, Ayurveda emphasizes proper nutrition, also.  There can never be enough said about the fact that good eating habits have an enormous effect on the health of the body.

If you are looking for that one all-encompassing healing method, I would have to say that Ayurveda comes as close to that as a person can get.  This particular healing method has been used effectively in the treatment of cancer and heart disease. The World Health Organization also recognizes the Ayurveda system of healing and supports Ayurvedic research.

Wishing you abundant health!  Bright Blessings

SUNDAY ORACLE: Mary Magdalene (Unconditional Love)

“Love yourself, others, and every situation–no matter what the outward appearances may be.”

As I was typing this post, the song ‘All ya need is love,” began playing in my head.  Love really is what makes the world go around.    Mary Magdalene, though not a Goddess as in one that has been worshiped by any people or religion, was a key figure in the life of Jesus of the Bible.  The Bible does not say directly that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute, many scholars say that she was.  However, if she was of that profession, she certainly displayed a courageous and sweet spirit by showing unconditional love to those who would judge her.

Mary Magdalene chose to forgive and love those who looked down on her.  That is what this oracle is all about this week, loving and forgiving those who would judge or hurt you.  You do not have to sink to their level of meanness. You can rise above that hateful attitude and simply send loving energy in their direction.  Forgiveness the key in healing old hurts.  Forgiving is not for those who wronged you, forgiving is for you.  You can wipe a great deal of bitterness off of your heart by forgiving.

Call on Mary Magdalene this week to help you practice unconditional love.  You will be amazed at how light hearted you  become once you dump the grudge baggage you are carrying.  Also, this is a great time to forgive yourself.  Forgive yourself for things you may have done and things you may think you have done.  Learn to love yourself unconditionally.

If you are in the midst of an argument with family or friends or anyone else, look at the situation through the eyes of love.  Love can heal many conflicts.  Allow your connection with the Divine and that infinite supply of love to permeate your spirit.  As love flows from inside your heart into the world around you, you will see your life situations improve and happiness will invade your life.

Practice love, dear ones, practice love!  Bright blessings!
