The mind / body connection

In eastern cultures, they believe that your mind, body and spirit have a connection.  They believe that there is an energy within us called the Chi that, if disrupted, can cause physical and mental disorders.  There are points along this energy that are connected to foods that we eat, colors, tones, emotions and emotional growth.  They are called chakra’s.  The chakra’s go down the center of your body and have points on your face that can be tapped to reconnect the energy that has been disrupted.  Each chakra has an area of your emotional and physical body that it controls and if disrupted will cause certain disorders within the body and emotional mind.  There is a therapy that is becoming popular, called “Tapping” that will realign your chakra’s and heal you body and mind.  It can reverse trauma and other mental and physical disorders that have happened to us along the way so we can live a happy life.  During the next several blogs I will attempt to talk about each chakra and what it is connected to within the body and mind.  If you identify with any of the things discussed you will first have to be willing to let go of the old and replace it with the new.  The following link will help you to do that.

Catfishing

Catfishing is a realitively new term.  It is used to define people who pretend to be someone else.  They take on this persons identity, pictures, experience and sometimes family.  They are usually on dating sites but will never want to meet you and sometimes not want to talk to you on the phone.  They will often only want to communicate by email or text message.  If you have Hulu, there is a television show about this on there.  People who need to do this sometimes will ask you for money or phone or cyber sex.  This is usually their only form of communicating with anyone on a deeper level.  They do not seem to be  able to explain why they need to do this to people who they seem to want to get close to, but never do.  They may not want to give you their last name.  They will often times be very quick to tell you they love you and want to be with you, even though they will make up resons why they can never actually meet you.

If you are on a dating site and begin to talk with someone who is resistent to meeting you, connect with you on a real level, you might want to google them and see if what they are telling you matches what is being said about this actual person.  If you can’t find them and your gut is telling you something is wrong, it probable is and you should cut it off.  These relationships never go anywhere and if you are truly looking for someone to spend quality time with, this person is not it.  If you were counting on this person to make your dreams come true, you will have to give away the hurt that this person has caused.  Do not give away your heart before you have at least met the person to which you’re giving it.  The following link will help you to do just that.
