Every great dream begins with a dreamer.
Always remember, YOU have within you the strength, the patience,
and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
~ Harriet Tubman
Well Being means different things to different people. For some, financial well being is most important; for others, physically being well; and still others desire well being in relationships and family affairs. Freedom is important to well being – freedom from fear, worry, and anger. Freedom to pursue your dreams and mission in life.
Everything starts with YOURSELF, with YOUR AWARENESS AND READINESS TO CHANGE!.
Think about it. Once you awaken to your personal power, once you truly believe that all potential and creation exists WITHIN YOU – then nothing is missing, nothing needs fixing. And the best part is – what happens on the outside (bank closures, earth quakes, personal loss, financial difficulties, health challenges, etc.) it all loses it’s power to effect YOU.
How would you live your life if what others think or say didn’t matter anymore?
Wouldn’t you be free to create and live without limits?
The problem is, most of us were not brought up that way. Most of us were reinforced in what we did “wrong” instead of what we did “right”. We were taught to please others instead of ourselves. It’s not their fault – they did the best they could with the awareness they had.
YOU NOW HAVE A CHOICE: you can awaken to a new level of creation, to a power within you that creates all worlds, to possibilities beyond your wildest dream, or stay stuck in the old ways of effort, hard work, struggle, fear and anxiety.
IT IS YOUR CHOICE!
Let’s look at 3 main pillars of well being which are intimately connected.
- Mental /Emotional Well Being
- Physical Well Being
- Spiritual Well Being
Mental / Emotional Well Being
Well Being always begins in the mind and emotions. The World Health Organization defines mental health as “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.” Mental health is a level of emotional well-being or an absence of a mental disorder.
Mental health can also be defined as an absence of a major mental condition. Therefore, the impact of social, cultural, physical and education can all affect someone’s mental health.
How well are you right now?
Take a moment and be mindful of your thoughts.,believes. Every thought that you think starts out psychically, but then returns to you in physical manifestation. Therefore, as you choose your thoughts, you choose your life.
Physical Well Being
Physical Well Being encompasses both your body and your environment. Physical wellness entails an understanding of the relationship between sound nutrition: “I am what I eat ” and the functioning of the body, an awareness of the body’s true identity, depth of feelings, tension patterns, reactions, balance and harmony.
Spiritual Well Being
Spiritual Well Being is closely associated with our connection to Nature and to our cosmic energy Source.
Many people go through life and work essentially blind and deaf to the myriad of possibilities that exist around them. Some individuals fortunately awaken to their situation through various experiences that serve to enlighten them, while others regrettably don’t.
For those whose eyes and ears are opened, the world becomes a place filled with countless mysteries that can often overwhelm their abilities to understand how the universe operates. These are people who can be described as spiritually-active, they are on a spiritual journey of well-being.
What Is Metaphysics?
The word metaphysics, or metaphysic, was coined by the ancient Greeks, “meta” meaning “ after” and “physic” meaning “physical,” therefore metaphysics meant to the Greeks “after the physical.”
How can it help people achieve well-being?
Simply stated, metaphysics is the study of truth, meaning and purpose. It helps us understand the world and our lives in it in ways that go beyond the physical. It leads us to the non-physical realms of consciousness that govern our beliefs, attitudes, and perceptions, and that in many ways influence how we think about ourselves, what we know about ourselves, and how we experience ourselves.
There are two branches of metaphysics that are most pertinent to our life and work.
The first is Vocational Metaphysics, which, as defined for our purposes in personal growth and professional development, is the study of truth, meaning and purpose as related to our life calling and our lifework.
Vocational Metaphysics is much more than simply about a job or a career. A job is what we do to earn money. A career is a natural progression of jobs within a field of endeavor. Our well-being derives from an understanding that our life calls us to a particular path of work, not just to any job that will occupy our time. For many people it is not enough any longer to perform a job in the traditional sense, punching in at 9:00am and punching out at 5:00pm.
The experience has actually become the converse, checking out in consciousness at 9:00am so that they can do their job, then checking back in at 5:00pm so that they can resume their life. They earn a living on the job, but they live outside the job.
This new level of unitive consciousness leads to the second branch of metaphysics: Sacred/Divine/Spiritual Metaphysics.
As defined for our purposes in personal growth and professional development, Sacred Metaphysics is the study of truth, meaning and purpose as related to our consciousness. It is in spirit all about what we can learn regarding our life story so that in practice we can reinvent who we are and what we do.
Consider metaphysics as the study of truth, meaning and purpose as related to YOU.
YOU are the only person who truthfully, meaningfully and purposefully knows “YOU.” You are therefore the vehicle for the journey, and the substance of the voyage. You are the author, the authority, and the authenticity. It is your well-being at issue, thus it is incumbent on you to be who you are really meant to be, in order to be well and to do what you are really meant to do, in order to do well.
“Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate,
but that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.”
