Happy May!

In the merry merry month of May….

May arrives under the influence of the April Pink Full Moon in Scorpio. It is one of the most potent and magical Full Moon’s of the year. Full Moon’s are always lighting up that which was in darkness.

They draw things out of us and awaken us in areas that were previously hidden. The Scorpio Full Moon encourages us to release what needs to be cleared in a way that will deeply transform. It also encourages us to do it in a way that will awaken and enlighten. Scorpio represents unconditional love and consciousness. What a magical beginning to the month!

Bubbling beneath the surface? Whatever has been bubbling beneath the surface will emerge just like the May flowers. Give yourself space and time to sit with it. All too often we try to “push” energy away and on an energy level this doesn’t work. It’s time to allow whatever it is to “bubble up” so you can release it. What better month than one that includes unconditional love? Always remember you are supported by energies from the ether worlds. Surround yourself in the loving embrace of those energies.

MEDITATION TIP FOR THE MONTH

Stubborn is as stubborn does…Although we technically started the month under the influence of the Scorpio full moon, April 20 – May 21 the Sun is in the sign of stubborn Taurus. This is a great time to look at where we are being stubborn. What don’t you want to let go of “on principle”? How effective has that been so far? Yes, it’s ok to laugh! Find your neutrality with all those places you’ve been stubborn..until now.

Roman astrologers considered Taurus ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty, and Earth, the goddess of the earth and nature so there is love and beauty in our connection with our energy, our spirit and the Earth. In other words ground yourself into the loving arms of Mother Earth.

Give yourself a break! When was the last time you cut yourself some slack? I know we all seem to enjoy punishing and pushing ourselves. All that means is we are punishing ourselves and in effort. This month we are going to witness an unprecedented clearing of energy and if you don’t give yourself a break you will “match” to the lower vibrations on their way out.

For the next 30 days check in with yourself periodically throughout the day to see where your energy and attention is. Bring it back to you. There is more power when you take a step back as an observer than there is when you get caught in the tornado. Now to be clear, I’m not talking about not doing what you do to usher the energy out. None of us should stay innocent bystanders. All I’m suggesting is that you don’t match the energy, anger and chaos that you see around you.

Observe with curiosity and open-ness. Use your creativity to birth new solutions and add your brilliance to the world so all may take a step up in awareness.~Shine Your Light~Debbie

Can meditation reduce anxiety and help your heart?

A Single Session of Meditation May Reduce Anxiety and Help Your Heart

Participants showed benefits after a short, introductory meditation session.

Stress and anxiety can make everyday life a challenge. They’re the mental monsters that harm the well-being of millions daily, leading to long-term effects on health.

In the hopes of finding a way to combat stress, researchers are investigating if a single, hour-long meditation session can counteract the negative effects of anxiety and stress.

In a small study that’s being presented today at the 2018 Experimental Biology meeting, researchers found evidence that a single session of mindful meditation can help reverse the physical and psychological toll of stress on the body.

Over the past decade, meditation and mindfulness have become popular regimens in healthy living. They’ve evolved from being just a fad to a legitimate player in the fight against cardiovascular disease and other conditions exacerbated by stress.

Previous research on meditation and anxiety have shown significant reductions in anxiety levels after weeks of meditation. But this study suggests that just one meditation session can lower anxiety and potentially a person’s cardiovascular risk. More research is needed to confirm these findings, however.

John J. Durocher, PhD, assistant professor of physiology in the department of biological sciences at Michigan Technological University and Hannah Marti, a recent graduate of Michigan Technological University, led the research. They measured the 14 participants’ anxiety using a system called the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) before and after they underwent a 60-minute introductory mindful meditation session.

The researchers found that meditation had significant effects on both physical and mental symptoms of anxiety. Participants reported far less anxiety on the BAI, but they also had physical indicators of less stress.After one hour of meditation, researchers found that there was a significant change on blood vessel wall stiffness — indicating less stress or pressure on their arteries — immediately after meditation. This reduction was also seen an hour after the meditation as well.

As a result of these early findings, the researchers suggest people can start to see psychological and physical benefits from a single introductory session of mindful meditation — and possibly even lower their cardiovascular risk.

While this study is small and yet to be published in a medical journal, the researchers say it can help open a new pathway of research.

How meditation can help your heart

Searching for new ways to combat stress and anxiety is a key goal for doctors, as a large portion of adults report feeling anxiety every year.

According to the most recent data available, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)estimates more than 19 percent of adults experienced anxiety within the past year and more than 31 percent experienced an anxiety disorder at some point in their lifetime. The NIMH notes anxiety disorders are higher in females than males.

Everybody feels stress and anxiety in different ways. But when stress becomes excessive, it can contribute to high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, physical inactivity, and overeating — all of which contribute to heart disease and stroke, according to the American Heart Association.

However, mindful meditation has been shown to help not only stress and anxiety, but other conditions often exacerbated by chronic stress as well.

 It can reduce pain, boost the immune system, and ease inflammation in chronic conditions. It can even help increase gray matter in the brain, build focus and concentration, reduce loneliness, and even cultivate willpower.  Read more at Healthline
