Improve your mood by feeding your soul

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer

Our mood is constantly guided by our mental and emotional wellbeing. If we feel stressed, sad, anxious, or worried chances are that it will be affected. Not only does our mental/emotional aspect of the body may be impacted but also our physical body may feel the weight of our mood. For example, when we feel down or sad, many times we get physically tired or fatigued. It is also influenced by the environment we live in. If you live in constant tension and never release it you might be in a constant "bad" mood. Lastly, but not limited to, our mood may get triggered negatively whenever a stressful unresolved event happens to us. Whenever a bad memory gets triggered, or when we remember a piece or the entire stressful event our mood tends to merge its state from how we felt then with how we feel now. 

There are people who are able to have a better grasp of their mood, such as, being able to stay content no matter how many obstacles were encountered during the day. While others break down allowing the obstacles to take over their mood. This depends on everyone's ego-stregth, life skills, personality traits, and current mental/emotional state at that time. Our body tells us directly what we need to feel better but we are too busy to listen. We shut down the communication with ourselves on a daily basis thinking there is not time to do this or that. Not knowing that suppressing the body's voice can lead to emotional/mental/spiritual or physical blockages which can contribute to illnesses. In other words, when we don't do stuff that makes us happy our mood deteriorates. 

Remember as a child when you went to the park, the beach, or a pool, and felt like it was the best day ever?! Or when you heard a song you loved and automatically started to sing and dance to it? Or when you went out and ate your favorite plate of food? Feeding our soul is doing things to make our entire being happy which quickly impact our mood into a more positive state. Just like when we were children, whenever we did something that made us happy or brought us joy, our mood transformed into a happier state. 

Take a minute to sit down and rewind your life into last week. Notice how many times you allowed a stressful situation to control your mood and how long it took you to improve your mood into a more content state. Thus far, have you been able to improve your mood into a place where you feel good about yourself? (Rate it! From 1-10 how good you feel about yourself, 10 being the greatest). Continue looking back and notice if you've ever done anything to help improve your mood at the time it needed love and attention, or did you fall into the negative thinking chain and allowed your mood to be controlled by the obstacles at hand?

Here I have listed a few recommendations of things that you can do to help improve your mood & feed your soul. Feel free to add your own healthy activity or practices that you know work for you, as we are all different. Try to do one per day as minimum and if you can journal what you notice about your mood whenever your engage in that particular activity. Ask yourself: Does this activity helps to improve my mood? How much time do I need to do it? How many days should I practice this activity for it to work?
Begin to transform your mood into a happier and lighter one on a daily basis! By surrendering and releasing the things you cannot control and taking control over the things you can, you will feed your soul and live a more balanced life.

New year, new vibes!

The beginning of a new year is a great way to start fresh and tackle new life goals!

By Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer
Every year we set new resolutions but we seem to have difficulties completing them. Moreover, we feel incomplete or disappointed in ourselves for not reaching our expectations. Begin the year with new vibes by changing the complicated resolutions to three simple practices. It consists on taking each day as it comes, write daily to-do lists, and practice positive thinking. Combing these steps will help you to reduce anxieties of future stuff that might or might not happen, organize your life, and maintain a positive spirit at all times.
Having bills, engagements, and daily issues to deal with may put us in a place where we overanalyze or over-worry about situations. The more we worry, the more drained we may feel. Additionally, it makes us more vulnerable to negative energy to enter our path. We can reduce the chances of getting anxious for future stuff by remaining as p…

What is a Reiki Healing Circle?

by Cristina Barcelo, Energy Healer

A Reiki Healing Circle is a gathering of people, preferably in the shape of a circle with the intention of healing. The circle represents life’s continuation, with no beginning and no end. Each healing circle is uniquely created based upon the intentions and goals of the group. When you participate in a Reiki Healing Circle you receive universal energy to help release energetic blockages caused by stress and traumas and to bring balance to your body. By participating in this practice as a group, the energetic force tends to be more powerful as bigger amounts of energy are being released and transformed into love and light. 

What to expect? When you go to a circle you may be required to sit or lay on the floor so it is always good to be dressed comfortably. They usually last from one hour to one hour and a half if there is a big group. Many times the practitioner utilizes different meditation styles to help induce clients into a meditative state which ai…
