Creative Health Tip 05 June 2009

Here is your Heaven On Earth Creative Health Tip for this week:

I'd like to talk a little bit about feelings.

We know that good feelings like happiness, gratitude, and love create good health. We also know that sadness, grief, and especially anger if it's ongoing and unresolved, creates disease.

On the other hand, we do have those emotions, and we need to learn more about them; learn how to resolve them, learn how to replace them with gratitude, and happiness, and love.

If you're feeling things like anger or resentment, or grief or sadness over the loss of a loved one, that's good. Acknowledge your feelings. Acknowledge where they came from.

However, if you're not sure where they came from or why (as is sometimes the case with repressed grief or anger), that is something you are going to want to look into and resolve.

While you're working through these feelings, do try to turn the page for them.

Try to turn your grief into gratitude. If you've lost a loved one, of course you're going to grieve for them, but at the same time, you had some time with them - maybe months or years – be grateful for all that time you had and eventually that grief will turn into something life-affirming and health-giving instead of health-taking-away.

Anger can be a very, very difficult thing to work through, but it is also the most (physically) damaging of the emotions. If you can take that anger and turn it into happiness, take whatever caused you to be angry and – as I talked about in last week's Creative Health Tip – find the good in it. There's good in everything. If you can find the good in a situation that has brought on anger, that will turn you around from the side of chronic illness to chronic health. And don't we all want chronic health!

Have a fabulous weekend!
