March: Embracing Holistic Methods for Harmony in Life



Let's embark on a serene, nature-embracing, and gratitude-infused journey for our mind, body, and soul! 🌿 By integrating these holistic practices into your daily routine this March, you will enhance your well-being significantly.


It's a time to cultivate the ability to reset, regroup, and recharge within a brief moment in time and space. Maintaining rapid adaptability to changing situations, alongside meeting your basic needs, is crucial for sustaining yourself. With the planet's energy accelerating, being attuned to oneself is vital for staying calm and balanced amid the upheaval.


Number 3: March


"In the positive polarity, the number 3 of March represents the themes of creativity, nurturing, the Positive Mind, food, social connectivity, and a “can-do” spirit. However, when it goes negative, number 3 is angry, worrisome, depressed, and potentially destructive to one’s own self or others.

One of the characteristics of the 3 energy is that it can vacillate wildly in its emotional spectrum. " from Nam Hari, expert in numerology.



"The Karma of number 3 is comparing yourself with others, low self-esteem.


The Dharma of number 3 is equality, to lift yourself out of the black hole of self-attack in any form by a simple statement; like ‘I have the right to exist’, ‘I have the right to be happy’, ‘the bottom line is- I am and I am ok’, and so on.


Whatever is your best affirmative statement you can make about yourself it is the Positive mind that will agree to it and reinforce it. The best affirmative training is action, and even the smallest deed can have great consequences. So, at this stage of the journey through the year focus on what you ‘can’ do rather than what you believe you cannot. By doing what you can, and telling yourself at the end of the day ‘today I did what I could’, you build in you the memory program of achievement and success. In addition you are confirming to the world that you exist, you have made yourself visible. " from Karam Kriya


Element of the month: FIRE



Similar to how the sun fuels energy for the earth, fire serves as the energy source for the body. Fire embodies perception, illumination, and sight, with the eyes being viewed as the organ associated with fire. It symbolizes light, warmth, vitality, metabolism, and the ability to transform.


We can use this energy to burn through the negativity and create great things, or burn up ourselves in anger.

By incorporating these holistic recommendations into your daily life this March, you can support your overall well-being and feel more in tune with your mind, body, and spirit.


As we transition into the month of March, let's prioritize practices that nurture our holistic well-being. Here are some suggestions to help you cultivate balance and rejuvenation:


Self-Care Rituals


Dedicate time to self-care activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Because March is the fire element keep your self and your children well-hydrated. Brewing up a big pot of mint tea, adding honey and lemon, and then chilling it in the fridge is a good way to have a soothing beverage on hand.

Remarkably, a lot of bad decision-making stems from a combination of being dehydrated and having low blood sugar. The brain just doesn’t work right under these conditions.

 

Herbal Foot Soak with Cinnamon and Magnesium:


Magnesium is an essential mineral involved in numerous enzymatic reactions, benefiting physiological functions like heart rhythm and muscle relaxation. It can be absorbed through the skin in foot soaks, offering pain relief and muscle relaxation. Adding magnesium to foot soaks provides various benefits, including muscle relaxation and calming nerves.



Ingredients


1 cup magnesium flakes

1 teaspoon cinnamon

(Cinnamomum verum, syn. C. zeylanicum) bark, ground

1 tablespoon herbal infused oil

Water to fill foot bath basin 


Directions

  • Add all ingredients to a bowl.

  • Mix together the magnesium flakes, cinnamon, and oil.

  • Fill a foot bath basin with hot water. 

  • Add ¼ cup of the foot soak mixture to the water or into a muslin bag and place the bag into the hot water.

  • Step into the warming, soothing foot bath.

  • Grab yourself a book and enjoy the moment. It’s best if you are able to soak for a good 20 minutes to allow for optimal absorption of all the benefits in this herbal foot soak. 

  • Once finished, towel off your feet to remove water and any excess oil and put on a pair of cozy socks. 


*For sensitive skin, cinnamon can be irritating. To ensure you don’t have a skin reaction, place the ingredients into a muslin bag rather than directly into the foot soak water. This will act as a buffer.



Prioritize taking care of yourself every day to level up your happiness and live your best life!


 

Connection with Nature


Spend time outdoors and connect with nature. Take a leisurely stroll in the park, breathe in the fresh air, and appreciate the beauty of the natural world around you. Nature has a calming effect on the mind and can help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.

Gratitude Practice:

Gratitude is a universally transformative practice. It often stems from deep presence and acceptance for what is, and can be as simple as observing what we have at the very moment. Being appreciative of where we are and what we have leaves space that invites good things to come, while opening the awareness to the beauty that already enriches us.



Prayer of Gratitude: All My Relations

There is a beautiful saying and prayer that comes from the language and tradition of the Lakota People: Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ. It translates as All Are Related, or All My Relations. It’s a wonderful reminder of our interconnectedness here on Mother Earth, and of the spirit within all beings.


Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ


Aho Mitakuye Oyasin… All my relations.

I honor you in this circle of life with me today. I am grateful for this opportunity to acknowledge you in this prayer…

To the Creator, for the ultimate gift of life, I thank you.

To the mineral nation that has built and maintained my bones and all foundations of life experience, I thank you.

To the plant nation that sustains my organs and body and gives me healing herbs for sickness, I thank you."



To the animal nation that feeds me from your own flesh and offers your loyal companionship in this walk of life, I thank you.

To the human nation that shares my path as a soul upon the sacred wheel of Earthly life, I thank you.

To the Spirit nation that guides me invisibly through the ups and downs of life and for carrying the torch of light through the Ages. I thank you.


To the Four Winds of Change and Growth, I thank you.

You are all my relations, my relatives, without whom I would not live. We are in the circle of life together, co-existing, co-dependent, co-creating our destiny. One, not more important than the other. One nation evolving from the other and yet each dependent upon the one above and the one below. All of us a part of the Great Mystery.

Thank you for this Life.

Herbs To Foster Gratitude


PLANTS ARE PORTALS TO HEALTH AND WELLNESS"

The past, the present, and the future are to be found in the essence of each moment of our lives. Their separation is an illusion that we enact upon ourselves and the world around us - but reconnecting with nature can return us to wholeness. This multi-dimensional healing occurs through the senses of sight, taste, touch, smell, and sound. Michael Isted 





ROSEMARY – When we remember all that we have been given, rather than what we don’t have or are yet to achieve, we may access a deep well of gratitude. “Rosemary for remembrance” is a good phrase to help recall this timeless wisdom.


REISHI – This uniquely revered mushroom teaches us the value of a calm, collected spirit or shen. Encouraging steadiness and groundedness, reishi helps us remember that herbs are gifts to be grateful for: harvesting just what we need when we find reishi mushroom in abundance is a practice in mindful gratitude, to be sure.


GINKGO – Mental clarity and focus give gratitude a leg up, allowing you to mentally center all that you are thankful for and put aside worries and disappointments. Ginkgo aids this process, promoting clear thinking and concentration in the midst of a “monkey mind.”


HAWTHORN – When the heart is brought into balance, it is more able to be in a state of unconditional appreciation and openness. Hawthorn does just this, soothing and supporting both the physiological and the emotional heart and opening it to gratitude.
