An Illusion of Fear By Joyce Sobotta

B

Before we learn how to deal with fear, we first need to understand what it is. There are two distinct kinds of fear. Natural fear and perceived, or false, fear. It is important to differentiate what kind of fear we are dealing with. False fear has been described as “false expectations appearing real.” Fear is an expectation of what might happen in the future, but, it might not. It puts us in a survival mode when no present problem exists. We act out of the influence of the media and others.

When we believe in an illusion, or false fear, we give our power away. Most of the things a person worries about never happen. It has been said that 85 percent of the things we worry about never happen, and the things that do, we cannot control anyway. There are several techniques that may help toward eliminating fears: •  Breathe deeply, hold, exhale, and hold again. Repeat several times. • Use quality essential oils every day to calm the body and spirit • Add homeopathy to calm the mind • Pray and mediate

Fear causes chronic stress. Getting tied in knots about what might happen in the near future, which we cannot change, adds more stress to our body. If we already have a health condition, this stress makes it worse. Dealing with fear is the same as dealing with any other emotion. It begins with taking time to be aware of what we are feeling. Then ask if it is real or not. What is the worst thing that can happen?

SPIRITUAL BEINGS HAVING A HUMAN EXPERIENCE Having a friendly relationship with death is a birthright for each of us if we are willing to do the work. And the work is dealing with our fears about the subject. No other culture is as disconnected with death as ours. Conventional medicine looks at death as the enemy, something to be conquered at all costs. We are so identified with material forms that the thought of losing these forms causes great fear. Death does not mean we become nothing. You have heard it said that we are spiritual beings having a human CONTINUED PAGE 6...

Love and fear are the only two true emotions. Love expands our heart and connects us to others; fear contracts our heart and separates us from others. Every action we take in life is either out of love or out of fear. It has been said that all fear is a variation of the fear of death. Few of us contemplate this concept fully and, instead, tend to ignore the reality of death, because it frightens us. Those in touch with the ultimate reality

of death consider it to be a graduation of the soul or spirit.

It has a beginning and an end, but it is always water. When the wave ceases to exist, the water that made it is still somewhere. Each wave has a birth and death, but the essence of the wave (the water) never ceases to exist. On a cellular level we are dying and being reborn all the time. Every cell in our body is preprogramed for a certain lifespan and differs from other cell types. This preprogramed cell death is called apoptosis … the process of cell death and rebirth is going on all the time. Many anxieties, worry and fears are associated with death and dying. You’ve probably heard stories of people who have died and come back after being in a coma, and they tell us they didn’t want to come back into their physical body because it was so beautiful where their spirit had gone for a while. When we can accept the inevitable, that we all are going to die sometime, we can live each day to the fullest with gratitude, joy, and happiness, and have no regrets at the end. Life and death are intertwining throughout nature. If you look around a healthy forest, you will see dead and dying trees. You will also see a rotten log with flowers and young saplings growing out of it. Death literally is a breeding ground for new life. Fear of dying is a symptom of our forgetfulness more than anything else. In our journey through this material realm, we have forgotten who we really are. There is 6 www.esswellness.com

more to come after we leave our physical body. Even though they differ in what they believe life after physical death looks like, every religion references an afterlife. TAKE AWAY THE ILLUSION OF FEAR Here’s how we can bring balance and understanding to what death really is: • Understand that our time in mortality is limited, so make every minute of every day important for yourself, family, and friends. • Focus on what is most important in life. • Be grateful for all that we are and all that we have and express it with happiness and joy. Acceptance, sometimes referred to as surrender, is often expressed as “Let go and let God.” It means there is a reason for this struggle that is not yet visible to us. When we can accept how things are in the present moment, we are brought into alignment with a higher power – God. It is the reality of life that best teaches us how to live. Ask any soldier what life is like during war. Aside from the fear and horror of combat, he or she will usually describe an intense sense of aliveness. Because soldiers know each day could be their last. The rest of us live under the illusion that tomorrow is promised to us. It isn’t. Let us take an example from Marianne Williamson who so eloquently states,” As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

The Awakening of Humanity? By Lynne Girdlestone

T

Today we are all experiencing one or more of the negative effects of an incredibly destructive ‘agent of change.’ Truth be told, horrific things happen every day on this planet, but they usually affect other people in other places. COVID19, on the other hand, has the potential to reach anyone, anywhere, and our lives have been upended in a multitude of ways. The obvious questions— how do we stop this virus, how can we protect ourselves from a resurgence, will we be able to resurrect the global economy, what happens if our jobs can’t be restored—are all unknowns. They occupy our thoughts and emotions daily, hourly, with every newscast or twitter feed. For some, the crisis is merely an inconvenient interruption in their ‘business as usual.’ For some it has increased their already staggering profits or created new ways to capitalize at the expense of others. But for most of the other billions of people on the planet it is a radically amplified survival issue. From both scientific and spiritual perspectives, we know that nothing happens by chance: “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction” and “As you sow, so shall you reap.” What is happening today has its roots in everything that has gone before, and when the tension reaches a tipping point, something extraordinary happens to get our attention. This pandemic may be saying “STOP... NOW ... look at the world you have built ... untold suffering amidst 8 www.esswellness.com

obscene excess ... all life forms and the planet itself in mortal danger!” The winding down and isolation are giving us the opportunity to think about these issues deeply and come out of it with a better Plan B. That so many people are actually getting the message is an incredibly hopeful sign. Neighbors are helping with each other’s daily needs; service organizations are expanding their roles and methods to accommodate a rapidly increasing clientele; scientific organizations around the world are sharing their findings in an effort to develop both treatments and vaccines; governments


are trying to lift the financial burden of their citizens. What would happen if this behavior were to continue after the coronavirus is subdued? Could it not eventually lead to treating a recovering planet as a ‘global village’ and its citizens as the one human family it truly is? It would take time, but it has to start with the recognition of our interdependence and demanding of our ‘leaders’ that we all push the ‘reset’ button and begin to move in this direction! Fortunately, at this very time, a little-known cosmic event is also taking place. As we move into the beginning of the Aquarian age, characterized by energies of synthesis, unity and cooperation, the spiritual custodians of human evolution—the Masters of Wisdom—have once again sent one of their great ones into the world to act as a teacher for the coming time. Some of the past teachers we have known historically as Confucius, Krishna, Buddha, the Christ and Mohammed. Major world religions all expect another great teacher at some future time, and his imminent appearance has been foreseen by some writers since the late 1800s. For more than 40 years, British esotericist and lecturer Benjamin Creme informed the world of a coming change, of the collapse of our old structures to make way for the new. He served as a herald for the World Teacher for this age, Maitreya—the one expected by many and longed for by millions (consciously or not), who has come now to guide us through this perilous time and into a cleansed and transformed new world. Maitreya has advised humanity to make the needed changes to put our world on a saner, fairer path—for all 7.7 billion of us—and his advice can be summarized in a few words:

“He [Maitreya] will show that essentially men are one, no matter the colour or the creed, that the bounty of Earth belongs to all, and that sharing of that bounty is the key to man’s future. Only sharing, and the justice which it will bring, offers hope to man. Only justice wrought out of sharing will end the plagues of war and terror. Only sharing and justice can bring men to that Brotherhood which is their true inheritance. When men see this they will rise to the challenge and tackle one by one the many problems which daunt us now. Maitreya’s Light will support and balance men in their eagerness for the changes which must ensue, and, in right order, the world will be renewed.” (Benjamin Creme’s Master from ‘Transformation,’ Share International magazine) Maitreya and his group have worked behind the scenes for millennia to guide a human family endowed with free will. By all appearances today, we have not used that free will wisely and are reaping the consequences. But with these powerful, incorruptible allies at our back—and openly in the world for the next 1,500 years—we have the opportunity right now to start rebuilding a world that works for everyone. Will we take it? In response to today’s racial and economic injustice, exacerbated and highlighted by the COVID19 pandemic, we are marching. We are protesting. We are sharing resources and helping others. We are agitating for change. We are on the right track now! Let’s not even consider going back to ‘business as usual.’

Ayurveda emphasizes the concept of balance, through which changes occur naturally. Health and illness often reflect balance and imbalance, leading to comfort and discomfort, happiness, and misery respectively. Balancing dietary habits leads effortlessly to subtle and positive changes in your health and life. Ayurveda also emphasizes the prevention of pain, disease and imbalance, and the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The five elements inside the body are the represented as three doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Vata is space and air, Pitta is fire, and Kapha is water and earth. While we consist of all the five elements, we are dominant in one of the doshas. Ayurveda represents the whole self—mental, emotional, and physical. In other words, doshas are a gateway to understanding ourselves and others. During times of challenge like the pandemic, the external stresses interfere with normal habits. Confinement indoors causes a lack of physical exercise. Stress makes many of us reach for comfort foods that tend to be heavier, and we may feel more lethargic and sleep more or be anxious and fearful and not be able to sleep at all. That can lead to feeling tired during the day and reaching for comfort foods again…. it can become a vicious cycle. These behaviors are related to the elements of earth and water. The best way to bounce back from life challenges, from the mental and physical effects of having too much water and earth in the body, is to adopt a Kapha pacifying routine. This regime stimulates body and mind in healthy ways, creating balance. From drying up excess water retention and mucus that may have built up in your tissues to making space for lighter elements that bring

new energy into your life, a kapha balancing routine allows you to counteract adverse effects of lockdown. When Kapha is balance: Reliable, responsible, calm, affectionate, caring, loving, peacekeeper and even-tempered.  When Kapha is out of balance: Resistant, possessive, emotional, holds on to emotions, needy, lethargic, sleeping too much, depressed, lack of enthusiasm, apathetic, feeling dull and sluggish, congestion, overweight, slow digestion, oily skin, sinus congestion, nasal allergies, asthma, obesity, skin growths.  Organs to Nourish: Lungs, stomach, body fat, and lymphatic system. FOODS TO EAT MORE OF: Bitter, astringent/light, pungent (cayenne pepper), dry, warm foods: mostly plant-based such as flavorful steamed veggies, broth soups, quinoa, millet and buckwheat, sprouts and seeds (chia, sesame, and sunflower seeds).  Light grains, light proteins, abundant vegetables, drying and heating foods, heating, and pungent spices with thermogenic properties. • All freshly cooked vegetables, especially dark leafy greens, help to stimulate and cleanse mucus and excess Kapha.  • Hot herbal teas. • Add warming spices to food and tea, like cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne pepper.  • Sprouted beans, quinoa, spinach, dandelion, salads, cayenne, pepper, ginger.

How The Minimalist Approach Is A Solution For Clarity In Life By Yana Stockman

W

Would you like to have less stress in life, be less overwhelmed, procrastinate less, enjoying only beliefs that do not limit you? And would you like to have more focus, more clarity, more productivity, and more meaningful relationships? Then this approach will bring clarity to the answer. We are often confused about what makes our life happy, fulfilled, and purposeful. It comes with the price of progress and a fast-paced life; it comes with expectations and role-playing; it comes with an enormous amount of pressure and stress to keep up, to fit in, to be relevant. Nowadays to live a happy and successful life is a delusion because we have to get “this” and to have “that” to be more and bigger. Who said this is so? Well, everyone! We get targeted from everywhere—social media, entertainment industry, magazines, advertisement in transportation, commercials, restaurants, driving on the way to work, or simply listening to some podcasts. We compare ourselves and our lives whether we want to or not by asking: How can I get this life, how can I be that person? This brings more voices and more “mind chatters” and as a result it creates a disconnect when we

feel something is missing, devastating, addicted, more pressured, bombarded with more options, more noise, and it is exhausting! We work so hard to find fulfillment that we constantly need to tell ourselves that it’s worth it. But there is always more money and more work and never enough because we will never get enough of things we don’t need. By chasing more we forgot to prove to ourselves, not to everyone else what is needed in life, what is truly missing, what’s important; by trying to meet standards and playing roles we don’t know what is important anymore. Working with clients as a transition life coach and applying my minimalistic approach to identify where they got stuck along the way and uncover their potential and dreams, I discovered something. Our dreams are never about material things—even if they are in the first place—there is always a meaning behind our why—why we want this, why it is missing, and why we want to fill the void. By collecting things, items, thoughts, beliefs, expectations of others, listening to self-sabotaging voices, sooner or later we run out of storage, which CONTINUED PAGE 14...

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 13... ends up cluttering spaces we live in. The outcome of this mind cycle could end up that we serve them not otherwise. But what if everything we worked for and invested in career, relationship, beliefs are crashed or collapsed and we do not have what we invested in, what do we do? We would ask what is left, right? What did we have all this time? The answer always will bring us to basics, to essentials; we always had ourselves, our skills, talents, dreams, our purpose, and our story. Wouldn’t that be a wise investment to invest in ourselves?

make you calmer? Relaxed? More focused and easygoing?   Minimalism is much more than decluttering and simplifying. It is a mindset that can be applied in different ways to different situations. It is not about black and white and empty spaces without furniture and one fork, one cup, it is a highly flexible concept and naturally open to variations.

By downsizing sabotaging voices in your head we create more space for focus and meaningful intentions.

I moved to the United States with one suitcase and a backpack, leaving everything familiar behind—all that I thought was important and needed in my life, but it simply did not fit in a 25-pound suitcase. So I faced an opportunity, which every human being has—a choice. I had to choose to illuminate, choose to ask myself, what is essential for me, what can I optimize, scan pictures to the hard drive, donate clothes, pass my books and journals to someone who would benefit from them, evaluate everything that is just junk and clutter and only take space in my luggage. I call it a “suitcase mindset” when you evaluate your life and ask yourself, what if I have a one-way ticket to my better life, what would I bring with me there? Would you like to think about less stuff? Would that 14 www.esswellness.com

Despite the lifestyles we live in, there are common values. On this basis, here are five principles of a minimalist approach for clarity in life. 1.STRIP DOWN TO ESSENTIALS.  This minimalist principal to start simplifying your life is to start identifying what is essential or most important in your life. Is your focus there? Or is some “thing” or some “one” is distracting it. If you don’t know what’s important to you, start to discover what you do value in life, what matters most. Importance identification brings focus and clarity on your priorities and it is so much easier to make decisions for what fits into your life and what does not. Applying this will not leave any room for what others tell us we should want or have or be.   2. UNCLUTTER YOURSELF. Knowing what is important, we find out what isn’t serving us anymore, and this is where the principle


of unclutter takes its turn. Extreme is decluttering not going to work, because eliminating unnecessary things that prevent us from living the life we enjoy will not bring any benefits. Everything you plan to keep should have a value because it’s functional, make you feel good, it’s beautiful, or you just love it. We give attachment to people and rarely to things. Think of your old car, the previous version of an iPhone, last season’s shoes, your favorite book, or a candle, do you even recall thinking how good they made you feel? No, because you have already moved on and have another “favorite.” Uncluttering your space helps to unclutter your mind. 3. LOVE WHAT YOU HAVE. How many things do we own that are considered truly special? After we unclutter, not so much. Spending time cleaning and moving things around, absorbing negative talks, investment into people who do not serve you, hustling to save to buy another thing are simply not worth our precious time. Time is all we have, we have a choice to use it wisely. So by the end of the year, season, go through every part of your life, belief, connection, or living space and get rid of what you do not use or love.   4. TAKE AN INVENTORY OF YOUR LIFE. Autopilot of constant life flow without reflection never brings clarity into life, instead, we get stuck in the flow of feeding negative beliefs: “nothing changing,” “life is a mess,” “nobody cares,” and “it’s not enough.” An inventory system brings a management approach to sourcing, storing, and distributing or illuminating inventory. Being a manager of one’s life and evaluating

the inventory means the right goods, at the right levels, in the right place, at the right time, and with the right value. 5. RECYCLING YOUR MIND. Would minimalistic thinking change the meaning of success for you? By recycling your mind you challenge your beliefs and standards not on whose house or car is better or bigger, whose shoes are more expensive and whose career is more impactful, but who you are as an individual, what options you once had and what the importance was for this world. Do not waste your mind, be mindful of your waste and what might be clogging your daily life and productivity. Recognize what stops you from moving forward, what reduces your energy, and what limits your dreams.   This minimalistic approach works by having balance and meaningful consumption. Separate what is yours and what we have been told to believe. You may have consumed an idea and took it as your own, but does this really belongs to you? This life is yours only yours. Clear out the chatter in the brain and create clean, uncluttered space to impress the thoughts of what you want and turn it into a beautiful source of abundance, energy, and potential.
