selenasee I like the effort. To me it's not about how pretty it looks. It's about the effort. It's about the heart. There are many things that money can't buy. #embracelife #blessed #lifeofselena #teachersday2015 #citycollege2015 #love #citycollege2015 #thankful #teachersday2015 1min

shanti_ananda When explaining how a person's brain becomes traumatized, it is helpful to have an understanding of the nervous system, it's two basic states of arousal, and how these states can be manipulated into the psychological injury known as PTSD through percieved and/or actual life threats. The two basic states of nervous system arousal are parasympathetic and sympathetic arousal. Parasympathetic arousal is responsible for resting and digesting, where sympathetic arousal is responsible for the "fight or flight" response. The nervous system arousal is regulated by the vagus nerve, which controls bodily functions such as digestion and regulating heart beats. In moments of percieved or actual life threats, the vagus nerve shuts down, activating sympathetic arousal or the fight or flight response. Heart rate changes, digestion essentially slows to the point of stopping, and blood flows to the outer limbs away from the torso in an effort to protect vital organs such as the heart, lungs and stomach. If the brain percieves that neither fighting or fleeing is a possibility, the freeze response becomes activities, literally freezing the physical body, comparable to a deer in headlights or a possum playing dead to lose the interest of a predator. In the wild, animals will literally move their bodies around after the threat has passed; quite actually they are physically releasing the hormones of the sympathetic arousal and re-regulating their bodies heartbeat, digestion and blood flow, thus freeing themselves from remaining traumatized. When this freeze response is not physically released, it becomes stored in the nervous system as trauma or PTSD, altering the physical brain by causing overstimulation to certain areas of it. This causes an almost constant state of sympathetic nervous system arousal, leading to a host of physical difficulties such as digestive issues as well as emotional and mental struggles. For further information on digestion and PTSD I would highly recommend this article: http://psychologyofeating.com/post-traumatic-stress-and-digestion-whats-the-connection/ 39min

Journey To The Heart
September 3 "Things Are Working Out"
• • • • • • • •
Right now, this moment, things are working out. We natter away, trying to control, shape, and form. Trying to figure things out. We back off, then come closer. We worry and wonder. But things are working out. Things are working out as beautifully and Divinely as possible. The dance of life is taking place in sync with the rhythm of the universe.

Everything is working out, moving forward, evolving. There is a rhythm, an energy, a life force that continues, that shapes, that grows. You do not have to fight, resist, control, or even understand it. All you need to do is be– be present for your life, your love, yourself.

Your soul will lead you on. Your inner voice, your heart, is leading you on. Quiet your mind and trust that where you are and where you’re being led is perfect.

You don’t have to try to get it all together. You don’t have to strive to “have it all.” You already do have all that you need.

How many times have you been through an experience, fretting and fearful about the shape things were taking, only later to exclaim, Oh, I see now. Things were working out all along! Learn to say and believe that now.

Let your mind see what your soul already knows: things are working out perfectly.
