4 Ways to Avoid Stress
4 Ways to Avoid Stress
There is the popular belief that stress is due to external influences, such as an overload of work, family circumstances or financial worries, however what if this isn’t the case?
What if stress is really coming from within us and it is our ability or inability to manage our thoughts and emotions that really affect our stress levels?
You will find that some days you are more able to deal with life’s challenges than others. If you are wondering why this is, the clue is in your energy levels. The days when everything feels overwhelming might coincide with a prolonged busy time at work, with tending to the children’s needs or a busy social calendar with a series of late nights. These types of events require us to use up more energy than usual, leaving us depleted and unable to cope with events, work, people and decisions that might have otherwise felt manageable.
We need Qi energy to digest not only the food that we eat but also to process information and to stay positive. A shortage of Qi means we literally don’t have the energy required to carry out the brain functions in charge of managing the emotions caused by life events and relationships.
Our emotional and mental state, our immunity and ultimately our health, are all dependant on the natural and free-flow of Qi energy through the energy channels as well as the level of Qi in our energy system.
A harmonious mind flows like water
If we have enough Qi energy and it is circulating freely around our body, we feel happy, energised and our mind is clear. If we hit an obstacle, we can find a way around it.
When we are short of Qi energy or when our Qi is blocked or depleted, the obstacle becomes an issue. We can’t find a natural way around it and stress is then created.
4 ways to avoid stress
1. Accept and let go
Acceptance allows us to be at peace with things the way they are. When you let go of trying to change or control a situation and instead see it for what it is you can see it from all sides and achieve a better understand of the situation. Everything in life comes and goes; happiness, pain, people, work, money, everything in the physical world is transient. Accepting this puts us back into the natural flow of life. We can appreciate things without needing to hold on to them and avoid feeling loss when they go.Most of us tend to hold on to painful memories, keeping us from healing and moving on from the past. These emotions are stored in our energy system and create energy blockages. Blockages affect the free flowing energy in the body and result in stress. Making a conscious decision to accept and let go of emotions is a great way to support your mind and body.
2. Positive thoughts
Every thought is transmitted to the body through the energy system and every thought carries energy. A positive thought allows the energy to flow freely through the body, and a negative thought blocks the flow of energy. This will eventually affect the functioning of the main organs in the body.
3. Open energy blockages in the body to free the mind
We can only access the mind through the body. By opening energy blockages in the body, it allows you to clear out deep-seated blockages in the mind. In order to open the physical energy blockages in our body we need Qi. Receiving Qi through an energy treatment is a very powerful way to recover the free flow of energy in the body and renew your energy levels, allowing you to be free from mental, emotional and physical stress.
4. Accept things with an open heart
Once we accept what life throws at us with an open heart we can move with life’s movement, which is both up and down. This also mirrors how Qi energy flows in the body.
The first step to avoiding blockages in the mind and dealing with stress is to address is your Qi, or energy levels.
