Find Your Bliss


“To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life. “
– Jill Bolte Taylor

How Do You Find Your Bliss? Walking the woods and beaches of Gloucester MA, hiking the red rocks of Sedona Arizona, or x-county skiing in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine are my go-to’sfor finding bliss, defined as perfect happiness; great joy. Why does it seem we often must go somewhere in order to find that feeling of ‘bliss?’ Rather than seeking bliss outside ourselves, we also can go within to experience feelings of happiness and joy.

Finding bliss right here, right now in any given moment is a helpful skill that can be achieved through the daily practice of meditation, reiki and self-hypnosis. Daily practice is encouraged because, when we practice regularly we become more skilled, the practice become more innate and it is easier to achieve a state of ‘bliss’ in the recesses of our own mind. It is true, research supports that achieving positive feelings of happiness and joy can be enhanced when surrounded by nature, using all of our senses to take in the surrounding beauty. But learning, having, and using these helpful tools to create bliss in any given moment is valuable for helping us move through the chaos of a complicated world, with greater levels of peace and calm.

“Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that’s very important for good health.”— Dalai Lama

To get started, contact us to learn a simple 5 minute relaxation technique. If not true bliss, you can at least learn to slow your thoughts and experiences greater levels of peace and calm, in mind and body, and over time, with practice, a feeling of bliss. Relaxation techniques offer the potential Benefits of Relaxation: 

  • Slowing heart rate
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Slowing rate of breathing
  • Improving digestion
  • Maintaining normal blood sugar levels
  • Reducing activity of stress hormones
  • Increasing blood flow to major muscles
  • Reducing muscle tension and chronic pain
  • Improving concentration and mood
  • Improving sleep quality
  • Lowering fatigue
  • Reducing anger and frustration
  • Boosting confidence to handle problems

Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Special Offer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide. In the United States, 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer can occur in men too. Thanks to early detection services such as screening mammograms, breast cancer has one of the highest survival rates. Different types of mammogram screening include digital mammograms and 3D Mammography or tomosynthesis.

Prevention, Early Detection and Treatment Saves Lives. Talk to your doctor about breast cancer screening. Healthy, active lifestyles aid in prevention. Tips on Prevention from Mayo Clinic.

Stress and Cancer. While there is conflicting data in a review of the literature whether or not stress causes breast cancer, people facing a diagnosis of cancer may find the physical, emotional, and social effects of the disease to be stressful. Being able to use effective coping strategies to deal with stress, such as relaxation and stress management techniques, can been lower the incidence of depression and anxiety. According to research, relaxation training during chemotherapy can reduce anxiety and other adverse events in postoperative breast cancer patients.

Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines from the Society of Integrative Oncology for the Use of Integrative Therapies and Breast Cancer. These include relaxation, mind-body therapies (meditation, hypnosis, yoga), massage, music therapy and acupuncture, with some specific recommendations for symptom management mentioned in the guidelines. While more research is needed, reiki (ray-key) and Qi Gong are offered at a number of cancer centers due to their ease of use, gentle nature and relaxation benefits.

Talk to Your Doctor before using over-the-counter medications, dietary supplements, herbal products and integrative therapies. Some may not be indicated or even contraindicated for your situation. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center has on-line information about herbal products. The National Institutes of Health also has information on herb-drug interactions.

Special Offer from Dreamtime Wellness ™ During the Month of October: Anyone receiving treatment for breast cancer may enjoy a session for relaxation and stress management at discounted prices. Call or email to schedule your appointment: info@dreamtimewellness.com or 978-283-4258.

Enjoy today in a healthy way,

Karen

Reflexology ~

Reflexology ~

Reflexology and the many hidden benefits…

Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet, hands and ears. Reflexology is generally relaxing and may be an effective way to alleviate stress.

The theory behind reflexology is that these areas correspond to organs and systems of the body. The pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person’s health.

Several studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Studies also show that reflexology may have benefits in palliative care of people with cancer.
