Natural Aids

I easily release my fear, unhappy and negative thoughts.
I use forgiveness and affirmations to  calm my mind and restore my body.
I know how to be gentle and kind to myself and others.
I make beneficial choices in my eating and sleeping patterns.

What Is Natural?

It is natural to cry when you feel sad.
It is natural to smile when you feel happy.
It is natural to feel hungry when you need food.
It is natural to feel tired when you need sleep.

When we feel afraid, bodies naturally produce adrenalin.
When we do not get enough sleep, bodies naturally produce cortisol.
When we exercise bodies produce endorphins.
When we eat certain foods, we increase certain chemicals in the body.

Our bodies produce hormones or drugs naturally.
When we add or change or imbalance our natural chemicals, bodies need to adjust.
With the food we eat, the environment we live in and the drugs we take, we are altering what is natural.
It is important to understand how sensitive we are and how little we know about what is natural.

I am not a scientist, chemist or physician.
I am a conscious learner and pay attention to my own body.
I watch and listen to people show what happens with their own bodies, thoughts and emotions.
I know we need to be more respectful of ourselves, our minds and our bodies and how they work.

We all need enough sleep.
We are now a sleep deprived nation, because we do not sleep enough.
We can eliminate the effects of “cortisol” and lack of sleep by getting 7-9 hrs of good sleep each night.
We can stop the crazy making erratic emotional reactivity with good quality sleep every day.

The need for sleep is essential for mind and body and overall good health.
With enough sleep we stay focused, make good decisions, easy learning, being alert and aware.
Chemical substitutes only make the reactivity and emotional outbursts worse.
People learn to use drugs to stay awake and drugs to go to sleep.

For Your Consideration:
Rising early and going to bed early.
Go to bed when  you are tired and get us when rested (with no alarm!)
No food at least 2-3 hrs before bedtime. So your body has at least 12 hrs to clear your digestive track.
Get up and write everything on your mind, if you cannot sleep or wakeup early.
Give yourself quiet time before bed.   With no stimulants. Only soothing activities.
No TV, noise in the home when you go to bed.
Have your bedroom clean and clear of anything that needs work or attention. (no TV in Bedroom.)
Keep your bedroom quiet, clear of clutter, beautiful, clean and welcoming.
Do not argue, talk on the phone or text while in bed. (or watch TV)
Take Melatonin sublingual just before bedtime.  Natural sleep aid.
Seek what soothes you, ie. music, meditation, reading before you go to sleep.

Yes I am suggesting that you treat yourself like a child you are gently putting to sleep.
Sweet Dreams!!
Loving you,

Keys to Health & Vitality

Betty Lue Lieber, 1994


Ingest the best and forget the rest.  
Take into your body, mind and spirit only that which supports, sustains and inspires the BEST in you.

Life is flow.
To move with the flow is healthy.
To resist is stressful.
Move with the natural inner movement physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, etc.

To breathe in (inhale) fully life energy, Spirit, Prana, inspiration, is to expand our awareness to open to an enlightened mind.  
To exhale fully is to truly release what is no longer needed.

Reaching out with Love and respect for each other opens our bodies and beings to trust in the gentleness we all deserve to experience.

Choose for those thoughts which heal and free you to be unlimited in health and wholeness.
Forgive (erase) the beliefs which are limiting or false.

Carry with you an attitude of gratitude and love for yourself and others.
 Allow yourself to see all things work together for good.

Moderation in all things will bring your life into harmony.  
As we give ourselves what is really best for us, the extremes are gently released.

What you perceive in others and the world you strengthen in your Self.  
Focus on illness, disease and weakness and you actually weaken yourself.  
See only health and wholeness and you move yourself in the direction you are looking.

To clear out toxins and purify the system requires a willingness to eliminate toxic thoughts, activities, relationships as well as foods from your system.  Flushing the system clean is aided with water, fresh air, gentle movement and forgiveness.

To rest and relax your mind and body are invaluable to being refreshed and revitalized.
Each person has unique methods of relaxation - meditation, music, being in nature, focused simple activity.
