Recovering from Chronic Disease through Energy Healing Workshop

On July 15, CGI held a free workshop entitled Recovering from Chronic Disease through energy healing. Twenty two courageous individuals suffering from chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, narcolepsy, or others illnesses attended the workshop.

The participants learned about the principles of what causes these issues and how to improve their energy level to change the condition of their body. They had very low energy and weak bodies so it was difficult for them to exercise. During the workshop, they first did a balance/flexibility test to check their condition.  Then, they practiced floor exercises which consisted of toe tapping, twisting and relaxation postures accompanied with breathing exercises. The participants were able to begin building up and accumulating energy to focus on their body. Through this, they were able to change their current energy condition. 



Everyone could easily begin to practice these exercises at home.
The participants also learned a very easy moving meditation called BRAIN WAVE VIBRATION. Brain Wave Vibration is a simple, easy-to-follow brain fitness and holistic healing method that helps bring your body and mind back into balance. Through rhythmic movement and focused attention, it helps you manage stress, rediscover your physical vitality AND STIMULATE YOUR NATURAL HEALING ABILITY.

The participants also experienced Energy Meditation and Energy Dancing. This is a free-form energy meditation where they were able to feel ki- energy and experience inner peace and deep relaxation. Through the connection with energy, the entire body is able to respond in very gentle dance-like movements and participants felt so quiet, peaceful and relaxed.
At the end of the workshop there was a Question & Answer session where some of the individuals shared and asked questions about their conditions.
 
Everyone was gifted with a complimentary 30 minute evaluation by Master Michelle, in order to better help them overcome their health obstacles.

Excellent exercise for the summer! Brisk walk!

It is getting really hot here in Jersey. After having my lunch, I usually drive to a nearby coffee shop to grab a cup of coffee.  Last Friday, however, I just could not get in my car because it was like a sauna. I turned on the car just to check the temperature. It was 93 degrees. So I got out of the car and decided to walk to the coffee place. The distance to the coffee place is about 10 minutes on foot. As I returned to work from my coffee trip, somehow I felt strangely refreshed. I got little curious if the walk really made me feel better so I took some time to find out some health benefits of walking exercise and was quite astonished. If I list a few, these are the benefits you can reap by walking about 30 minutes a day.
  • Strengthens your heart by lowering bad cholesterol level and increasing good cholesterol level
  • Lowers the risk of diabetes, asthma and some cancer
  • Burns calories (Keep you in shape)
  • Strengthens your legs
  • Increases vitamin D levels in your body (Due to exposure to the Sun light while walking)
  • Makes you feel pleasant

I also found many articles about how walking is better than running. While running may be more effective in burning calories, you may put high pressure on your keens and joints and have a greater chance to hurt your feet. One article says brisk walk is the best way to go based on some studies. 
Pick up your pace if you feel strong and want to maximize the health benefits. If you walk too slowly, it diminishes them. Make sure you warm up your body, do stretches and wear comfortable running shoes to reduce the risk of injury.     


Little Side Story: One of my co-workers bought a new phone that has an app for fitness and one of its features is to measure the total steps you’ve taken and calculate how much calories you have burned by walking. According to this app, for taking about 10,000 steps, you can burn little over 500 calories. The number changes depending on your speed and weight. If 10,000 are too much, start with 5000 steps. If  you walk about half an hour a day and move around while you are at work, I think you can achieve this number burning about 250 calories a day.

Anger Management for Teenagers

What is anger?
Anger is an emotion you get in response to a threat, an unpleasant situation or fearful action taken against you. It is a normal and also healthy response when expressed in a controlled and appropriate way. However, not many can express their anger in this way but often rage and burst out. This uncontrolled reaction usually brings a trouble, sometimes a catastrophic result in the relationship they were in. It is especially true for teenagers because their emotion is less stable than that of adults and they often do not know how to appropriately express their feelings.     

Does Anger Management keep you from feeling anger?
It is a common misconception that anger management is to train one not to feel anger. Again, anger is a normal emotion and needs to be expressed. Anger management program helps you control and express your emotions in a proper manner    

Why to consider taking anger management class?
Has your child recently showed disrespectful reactions while getting angry? Does your child act inappropriately or lose control of himself of herself when he or she gets angry?
For teenagers, it is very important time of their life as they develop their ways to express their emotions. These ways they have leaned will last for the rest of their life. A proper care and training to express their feelings and to release stress in an appropriate way is critical for any teenagers.

Fortunately, it is possible for them to learn how to manage their stress and deal with unpleasant emotions they experience. Through a variety of fun training and exercises, they can find the things that trigger them to feel anger, stress and anxiety and learn how to cast those feelings when they encounter those triggering factors. As they go through the program, you will see your loving child becoming calm and more positive and improving their emotional health as well as physical health. 

If you think your child might need a help to control his or her emotion, do not wait much longer and try to handle the situation on your own. Ask for a help before it is too late!
