The Sacred Space

Filed under: Stress and Relaxation — Administrator @ 8:20 am

I’d like to take a minute and let all of you know about a Yahoo group that I have.

Sometimes we do things because we simply know they are important without really having any understanding as to the ‘why’ behind it. This is one of those things for me.

The group was started last year – and, due to an awful lot of Trauma in my life, it was left to wither. However, for weeks now I’ve been being ‘nudged’ to get it open and active again – and finally decided to listen to those nudges and get busy.

Within hours after re-activating the group – an email came in from an old member who, along with her daughter and newborn grandson, is going through some incredibly traumatic times. Coincidence? Well, I’d say yes, except that I don’t believe in them!

So, here’s a brief synopsis of the group – and if you have interest in it – please take a minute to check it out and join up if you wish. We don’t ram sales down your throat, we do not spam, nor do we share your email address. There is no cost to join and you can leave any time.

The purpose of the group is as stated – so if this is up your alley (or along your path), please join us.

Love and light,
Dee

Group description:

Making time for the Sacred in today’s world can be quite a challenge. But in spite of this, the fact remains that each of us – collectively and individually – need to make that time.

This is a place where we can come to share our prayers and blessings for the healing of individuals, situations, and our world. We are also sharing our quest, our spiritual path – no matter what form that path takes.

All are welcome here, whether you are Pagan, Wiccan, Christian, Jewish or of another belief system. The Goals are the same for all – to find our own Truth and our own Sacred Path.

We accept prayer requests and at times we take current news events to incorporate into our daily time with the Sacred (by whatever title you call Divinity) with the intent to love and heal without malice or judgement. All on this planet are deserving of blessings, grace and guidance and our main purpose in this group is to come together and unite our ‘prayers’, our meditations, our intentions and our paths in order to help and heal – ourselves, each other and our world.

This group is, in many ways, a ‘prayer group’ – in other ways it is simply a place to share with each other while on our own spiritual path.

Anxiety Disorder Treatments: The Best Herbal Remedies for Anxiety

Filed under: Stress and Relaxation — Administrator @ 11:01 am

by Tess Thompson

Anxiety disorders are the most common of all mental health disorders and affect the lives of millions of people every year, including approximately 19 million in the U.S. alone. If you are one of them, you may wonder if your symptoms are standard, and if there are behavioral and medical treatments that might be effective for you. While everyone experiences Anxiety in some form—perhaps before giving a public presentation or in the midst of major life changes—those with Anxiety disorders experience it unusally often and irrationally.

There are many different types of Anxiety disorders, each of which have unique features, but all of them share the symptoms of dread and excessive fear. Five common types are panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic Stress disorder, social Anxiety disorder and generalized Anxiety disorder. As with most disorders, each individual will experience symptoms slightly differently, and response to treatment will vary as well. While there are prescription medications for Anxiety, for those who are wary of the side effects there also exist natural treatments for Anxiety which contain herbal ingredients that can produce equally positive effects.

Passion Flower (or Passiflora Incarnata) is a natural ingredient that is often used for Anxiety relief, as well as to treat hyperactivity, Insomnia, Nervous Tension and even Parkinson’s Disease. Passion Flower helps to calm and soothe and is believed to be able to reduce Nervous tremors and lower High Blood Pressure.

Lavendar (or Lavandula Augustifolia) is one of the most popular natural ingredients for treatment of a variety of conditions, including Anxiety disorder. Lavendar is a general tonic for the Nervous system and is well-known for it’s calming properties, making it among the most effective of natural Panic Attack treatments. The active ingredients in lavendar are tannins, flavinoids, coumarins, triterponoids and volatile oil.

Lemon Balm (or Melissa Officinalis) is a natural ingredient that is used as a resorative for the Nervous system and also calms the Digestive System and reduces blood pressure. Lemon Balm has also been used to treat Grave’s disease (Hyperthyroidism), and to treat Depression and Insomnia.

There are no quick fixes for Anxiety disorder and Anxiety disorder treatments should usually Focus heavily on behavioral therapy. No matter how many times you might hear that you “worry too much” or that you should Relax, your symptoms are not character flaws but indications of a serious disorder that is not your fault.

Anxiety disorder is caused by biological, physiological and genetic factors, and may make your life seem stressful and difficult. There are many others like you who have found effective treatment through therapy, medication, Herbal Remedies for Anxiety or some combination of the aforementioned, and you too have the ability to overcome your disorder to lead a happier, healthier life.
