Living Harmoniously - August 2017

By Christina Ince, Penticton, BC

We are all at one with each other in the universe, so the more we do to bring harmony into the world, the better. We may despair when we hear how few days since history has been recorded when there has been total peace the world. Don’t give up. As with charity, start at home.

Oscar Wilde said, "To love one’s self is the beginning of a lifelong romance"

So begin with considering the possibility that you can love yourself. You can’t give of your best if you are not being your best, whether with partners, children, lovers, friends, co-workers. Nurture yourself, then nurture your closest relationships. Show kindness to the person across the counter, in the store, on the can be contagious!

I stood behind an angry woman making impossible demands of the bank teller - when she finally moved away the teller glared at me as if daring me to do my worst. In a low soft voice I praised her resilience, and her tired face eased into a smile as she thanked me for the first kind words that day. And why would we not want to enhance our primary relationships? Just think about this: if you put as much effort into your current relationship as you have put in the past into the crummy ones, how much better would it be?!

Show gratitude where you can, speak praise instead of just thinking it - the same goes for compliments. That elderly lady you spoke to on the bus or in the supermarket queue may not have had anyone speak to her at all that day. There are true stories of people who had been determined to commit suicide, only to have their minds changed at the last moment by an unknowing stranger’s kindness.

So, in a quiet moment, think about not so much what you can do in your relationships, but how you can be.

Wellness Tip
Boost Your Immune System
Throughout our lives, our immune systems are under assault from environmental toxins. Living in crowded cities, traveling frequently in airplanes, and spending time in day care centers and schools all expose us to many more germs than people had to deal with in the past. We can protect and strengthen our immunity by eating right, getting enough activity and rest, practicing stress reduction, and cultivating healthy emotional states. There are also several herbs, such as astragalus, that can help enhance immune function. Obtained from the root of Astragalus membranaceous in the pea family, astragalus has a long history in Chinese medicine, where it is used to ward off colds and flu.

The Weather
The atmospheric system we call weather affects all of us. Extreme weather is when a weather event is significantly different to the average weather pattern. This includes high winds, heavy precipitation, wildfires, tornadoes, cyclones, blizzards, snowstorms, ice storms, and duststorms. What causes extreme weather? Certain conditions, and yet the metaphysical meaning is related to a shift of energy.

Healthy Omlette
Category: Breakfast
Description: This is a simple omlette that is packed full of flavour! All eggs contain the same basic good stuff, and the large ones pack only 72 calories each, so you really can't go wrong. But depending on your eating habits, special eggs may be worth the extra cash. Labels to look for are Organic eggs as these were laid by chickens that aren't fed nasty slaughterhouse byproducts, antibiotics, or certain additives. Have you ever wondered what the difference is between free run and free range - check out the OK In Health article on that topic in our August Article section.
