The Beautiful Sounds Of Nature

There is something so relaxing and beautiful about the sounds of water; whether it be a stream, waterfall, lake, or ocean. It can even be the sounds of water running into the tub.

Some years ago, I was feeling emotional about and I came upon a river. There was water rushing as it came onto some rocks, separated into two paths, and ran down a what was below. As I stopped and observed, I listened to those sounds. It began to relax me and made me feel like my problems were “washing” away with the stream.

And from then on I would occasionally used the sounds of water as a way to meditate, relax, and let whatever that is going on inside me to be “wash” away. Of course there are ways to use water as in submerging your body into the water and let that be a way to spiritually rid yourself of anything you may want to rid yourself of.

When I’m not able to get to a body of water and listen to the sounds of it running, other than from the shower or bath, I play sounds of water moving and sounds of rain on YouTube videos.

What do you think about the sounds of water? Have you ever used it in any way? Let us know.

Thanks for reading.

I’m going to let you all know something. Relaxation has never felt so blissful.

Soft music. Candlelight. Your favorite body fragrance scrub, etc. The works, you know.

Take the time out of your busy day- or night and get to know your body and yourself all over again. Relax your mind, body, and your spirit, and as often as you can.

Meditate. Pray. Shut the world out. Read. Write. Do whatever it is that helps you to relax. Take as much time as you need.

Go into that place where you find comfort and tranquility. Your higher self will thank you.

Life is short, so no matter what’s going on, relax, relax, relax!

Also, I love going to Youtube to listen to meditation music and the likes. One of my favorite channels is: Yellow Brick Cinema- Relaxing Music. I would like to share one of their many videos with you. I hope you enjoy it and helps you to find relaxation.

Love,

Pamela


Below is an article from The Mayo Clinic I’ve snipped and wanted to share with you all. (Click the link below to read the article in its entirety.)

Learn how to use relaxation techniques to reduce stress and bring more calm into your life.

Types of relaxation techniques include:

  • Autogenic relaxation. Autogenic means something that comes from within you. In this relaxation technique, you use both visual imagery and body awareness to reduce stress.You repeat words or suggestions in your mind that may help you relax and reduce muscle tension. For example, you may imagine a peaceful setting and then focus on controlled, relaxing breathing, slowing your heart rate, or feeling different physical sensations, such as relaxing each arm or leg one by one.
  • Progressive muscle relaxation. In this relaxation technique, you focus on slowly tensing and then relaxing each muscle group.This can help you focus on the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. You can become more aware of physical sensations.

    In one method of progressive muscle relaxation, you start by tensing and relaxing the muscles in your toes and progressively working your way up to your neck and head. You can also start with your head and neck and work down to your toes. Tense your muscles for about five seconds and then relax for 30 seconds, and repeat.

  • Visualization. In this relaxation technique, you may form mental images to take a visual journey to a peaceful, calming place or situation.To relax using visualization, try to incorporate as many senses as you can, including smell, sight, sound and touch. If you imagine relaxing at the ocean, for instance, think about the smell of salt water, the sound of crashing waves and the warmth of the sun on your body.

    You may want to close your eyes, sit in a quiet spot, loosen any tight clothing, and concentrate on your breathing. Aim to focus on the present and think positive thoughts.

Other relaxation techniques may include:

  • Deep breathing
  • Massage
  • Meditation
  • Tai chi
  • Yoga
  • Biofeedback
  • Music and art therapy
  • Aromatherapy
  • Hydrotherapy

The Attraction and Manifestation of Abundance


When we think about abundance the first thing that comes to mind for most is a large quantity of something that we want or need. Abundance to me is indeed plentiful, and it has the natural tendency of life and nature to grow and manifest.

We all may want an abundance of things, and most of those things require us to work for them. Like for instance, if we want money we will have to go to work. And when a farmer wants to grow and bring in his crops, he has to do what is needed to be done to do so.

Abundance manifests in ways other than money and wealth and some may believe that is all that they may need.

Too much of mater abundance isn’t good, but you can’t go wrong with spiritual abundance, opportunities, and love, just to name a few.

Attracting abundance from what I’ve learned a few years ago, you have “see” it in your mind what you want. The power of visualization is strong when you set a firm belief on what you want, and leaving room for the Universe to bring it to you in a way it is meant to.

Another way is of attracting abundance is saying and/or writing affirmations about whatever it is you want. You are the co-captain of your life and you can accomplish what you want in your life.

You have to “see” it, open your mind to the outcome, feel it, and expect it to happen.

And not to forget to be grateful for the abundance that we already have and the ones to come.

“May the sun bring you new energy every day.
May the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away your worries.
May the breeze blow new strength into your being.
May you walk gently through the world
And know its beauty all the days of your life.”
–Apache prayer

One of my go-to abundance meditation on YouTube:
