Emotions & Attitudes

Emotions give us information about what is happening in our world and motivate us to make changes we need so we can restore ourselves to harmony.  We need our emotions  But when our emotions begin to influence our actions, then they become an attitude.

Grieving the loss of a loved one is a normal part of life but deciding that we’ll never love again because the grief was so difficult, or clinging tightly to our remaining loved ones – over-protecting them so we never have to feel that loss again, that is an attitude.

Balancing an attitude can be as simple as holding a finger until the energy pulse harmonizes.  Because of the many energy pathways that flow through the fingers, holding your fingers help harmonize the entire circulation of life energy in our bodies.

Hold each finger / thumb approximately 4-5 minutes until the energy pulse harmonizes and you have 3-5 conscious breaths.  Do both left and right fingers: left fingers help the left side of the body, right fingers help the right side of the body.

Worry – also for guilt, depression, preoccupation, hate, obsession, anxiety, self-protection, digestion, stress, “nerves”, tension in head, shoulders, lung, talking too much, insomnia, to ground and calm, nurture, an imbalance in the stomach and spleen energy pattern, when you have to sit a lot.

For a “quickie” hold the thumb.

Fear – also for feeling safe, perfectionism, self-criticism, shyness, timidity, mental confusion, depression, frustration, desire for life, jaw, teeth, gums (including dental work, a baby’s teething, etc.), digestion, constipation, bursitis, tennis elbow, backaches, muscle tension, an imbalance in the bladder and kidney energy pattern, when you have to stand a lot (be on your feet).

For a “quickie” hold the index finger.

Anger – also for frustration, indecision, criticism, irritability, cowardly, indecisive, unstable, not alert, emotional, general fatigue, eyes, vision, nursing mothers, headaches in front of head, regulate blood pressure (high or low), an imbalance in the gall bladder and liver energy pattern, when you have to read a lot.

For a “quickie” hold the middle finger.

Grief – also for sadness, lost relationships, negativity, excessive mucus, common sense, logic, reasoning, ringing in the ear, skin conditions, respiratory functions (including asthma), an imbalance in the lung and large intestine energy pattern, when you have to recline a lot.

For a “quickie” hold the ring finger.

Pretense – also for trying too hard, confusion, crying on the inside and laughing on the outside, anxiety, insecurity, nervousness, mortality, heart conditions, bloating, judgmental attitude, an imbalance in the heart and small intestine energy pattern, when you need to walk a lot.

For a “quickie” hold the little finger.

These are very simple harmonizing aids.  The more often you hold a finger, the more effective it will be.

“We need never know FATIGUE.  Energy can never TIRE.  It is our PERSONAL imbalance that causes FATIGUE.

The SIMPLE reason for perfect health and happiness is being master of anything we do – LOVE IT regardless of what it is – menial, boring or inspirational work.  There should be no person or thing one dislikes – as hatred develops imbalance which causes FATIGUE.”
