Emotional Body: How Can Someone Heal Their Emotional Body?

While it is clear that one has a physical body, what might not be as clear is that one also has an emotional body. So much attention has been placed on the mind or what could be called the mental body, that emotions often seen as being insignificant.

And that the only time emotions do appear is when one has certain thoughts. This often creates the impression that emotions are just an effect of how one does or doesn’t think. Based on this outlook, one’s mind is in control and emotions are at the mercy of one’s thoughts.

If one was to go along with this and adhere to the perspective that their thoughts are in control, then it will be vital that one ‘masters’ their mind. And if ones thoughts create their feelings, then what else would someone do.

In order to change something, it is often said that one needs to go to the root of the problem. And with thoughts being seen as the cause, it is only natural that one would place their attention solely on their mind.

A Deeper Look

However, just because something has been around for a while, is believed by a lot of people or is something that ‘experts’ or authority figures stand by, it doesn’t mean that it is the truth. What was seen as being correct at one point in time can be seen as completely inaccurate at another time.

Thoughts can define how one feels; to think about a beach is generally going to make one feel different than if they were to think about their house being destroyed. And while this is true, ones feelings can also play a part in how they think.

Emotional Beings

To hear that humans are emotional beings that think might sound out of place. What might sound more accurate would be to say that we are thinking beings that feel. And as much as one might want to see themselves as always acting through logic or reason, behaviour is generally the result of how we feel.

After this, the mind gets involved and creates some kind of logical reason or justification for how one has behaved. But no matter how what the mind comes up with, emotions were the driving force.

Impact

So not only can our emotional body influence how we think, it can also have an impact on our physical body. And yet through a lack of awareness when it comes to emotions and the effect they have, dis-ease is generally seen as being a consequence of one’s DNA for instance.

But just because one is unaware of something, it doesn’t mean that it is not having an effect on their life. Emotions can be ignored and dismissed when it comes to ones physical health and yet that doesn’t mean that one is immune to their effects.

Emotional Problems

One thing that could make one want to heal their emotional body is due to them suffering from emotional problems. But, even if one doesn’t think that they have emotional problems, they might find that they behave in ways that are dysfunctional and that their mind is out of control.

These two things might appear to have nothing to do with how one feels and yet how one feels can be the cause of what is going on in their mind and how they behave. For example, if one is experiencing emotions that are not too pleasant, one way of dealing with them, in the short term, is to obsessively think about something or to become addicted to doing something.

What the mind is doing is regulating how one feels. And if these feelings were not there one wouldn’t need to become obsessed with ideas or fantasy’s or addicted to people or rituals, simply because their emotional body would be at ease.

Different Areas

Although it can seem as though emotions are only experienced in one part of one’s body or even that their mind is creating these emotions, each emotion that one feels is experienced in a different area of their body.

The chest area is where one can feel: abandoned, rejected, grief, sadness and loss. Above the stomach one can feel: hopeless, powerless, shame, loss of control and death. And further down, in the stomach, is where guilt can be felt and then under that in ones hips, is where fear can be felt.

There are other emotions and other places; these are some of the main areas.

Trapped Emotions

So while one can feel guilt when they have gone against their own values or feel rejected when a relationship ends and then gradually settle down, it is also possible for someone to end up being stuck there.

And to constantly feel guilty, rejected or even ashamed or to feel this way in certain environments is going to cause one to suffer. When one ends up being emotionally stuck, it can be the result of having trapped emotions in their body.

Causes

One of the biggest reasons why someone has trapped emotions in their body is because they have experienced some kind of trauma. As their feelings were not processed, they then stayed in their body. This could relate to: childhood abuse, the loss of a loved one or a car accident.

The Usual Approach

Now, when it comes to dealing with the emotional body and releasing these emotions, to enable one to be emotionally free, a masculine approach is not what is needed. This approach is all about doing and not being.

When one feels down about something, it is common for people to say: stay positive, keep your head up or they should just let go, amongst other things. And while his would work if it related to something physical in nature, emotions are not physical things.

The mind can repress or deny what is too painful to face. But this is unlikely to deal with how one feels, it is simply avoidance. These emotions can then end up being trapped in one’s body and control their whole life.

The Mind

And while the mind can live in a fantasy world and pretend that everything is fine, the body, as well as their relationships, will reveal exactly what is going on for someone. The body doesn’t lie as Alice Miller once said; whereas the mind can be full of lies and illusions.

One problem with today’s world is that we often ignore the body and only listen to what the mind has to say. The truth is then ignored and what is not true becomes the truth and this can include the world at large and our own personal lives.

Awareness

So if the trapped emotions are not dealt with through doing or through force, how are they dealt with? They have to be faced and felt and as this is done, they will gradually be released. This is unlikely to be something that happens overnight and could take a while.

The assistance of a therapist or a healer might be necessary. If one was to face their emotions by themselves, it could be overwhelming.

Author’s Pick: Top 5 best and worst dressed at the 2014 Oscars

The Academy Awards is famously known to be Hollywood’s biggest night. Movie fans around the world set their calendars every year for this special night…but so do fashionistas like myself.

Although I am a huge movie geek, and tune in every year to see the best of the best of actors, actresses, writers, producers, directors, designers, animators etc., I also tune in to see the fashion!

I have been watching the Oscars since before I can remember. Every year, I make Oscar-Sunday my day as I watch everything from the pre-red carpet to the arrivals, the actual ceremony, to the after-parties. I don’t want to rule out the men, as they all look handsome in their designer suits and tuxes, but lets face it – the ladies are the forefront when it comes to the outfits.

Each award season I sit on pins and needles waiting to see what the actresses are wearing. When it comes to other award shows’ fashion, they tend to get away with almost anything, but with the Academy Awards, it’s either a hit or miss. It was tough as there were a lot of best and worst dressed gals this year, but I narrowed my picks down. Not in any particular order (in relation to the photograph above) here are my top 5 best and worst dressed.

BEST DRESSED

Idina Menzel – The ‘Wicked’ star wore a strapless, forest-green Vera Wang gown that was simply stunning. Last night Menzel performed ‘Let it Go’ from Disney’s ‘Frozen’ which won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature.

Amy Adams – The five-time Academy Award nominee arrived at the red carpet wearing a strapless, sapphire blue Gucci dress that was nothing less than elegant. Adams was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for ‘American Hustle’.

Jennifer Lawrence – The ‘Hunger Games’ beauty never disappoints when it comes to fashion on the red carpet. Like last year’s Oscar dress, Lawrence knows how to wow. This year she chose a red, strapless peplum Dior Couture dress that had on-lookers in awe. The Academy Award winner was nominated again, this time for Best Supporting Actress for ‘American Hustle’.

Charlize Theron – She warmed our hearts in 2003 for her performance in ‘Monster’, but she won our hearts at the 2004 Oscars in a gown that outdid everyone’s. The Academy Award winner presented at this year’s show in a sexy, strapless Gucci dress. It was, as I believe, to be the black dress that every woman dreams of having in her closet!

Giuliana Rancic – The Fashion Police diva was on the red carpet hosting for E! hours before the arrivals. She was pre-game to the red carpet as she showed off her Paolo Sebastian dress. The slightly off-the-shoulder, champagne, princess dress was just darling. Even Joan Rivers couldn’t pick a bad thing about that dress.

WORST DRESSED

Elsa Pataky – Chris Hensworth, actor best known for ‘Thor’ and ‘The Avengers’, showed up with his very pregnant wife on his arm. Ok, I give kudos to the ‘Fast Five’ actress for stepping out onto the red carpet when she is ready to pop, but she stepped out in the wrong thing. She wore a teal, Elie Saab gown that covered too little on the sides and showed her baby bump in a very un-flattering manner.

Anne Hathaway – The Academy Award winner usually is a hit or miss when she steps out on the red carpet. We can either plan to see a ‘Princess Diaries’ look or a ‘ I Dreamed a Dream Les Mis’ look. This year, the presenter had a miss wearing a black and gold armor Gucci dress that would’ve been better designed as a shoe than a gown.

Anna Kendrick – The Academy Award nominee, and this year’s presenter, wore a J. Mendel dress that you either loved or hated. This is on my worst dressed so obviously I did not love it. The off-the-shoulder, black gown with the red sheer details at the torso would have looked much better with out the cross-body strap and thick-lining detail at the neck and arms. Better luck next time.

Sally Hawkins – One thing not to do when you are thin, beautiful and nominated for an Academy Award – dress like a nun. The actress who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for ‘Blue Jasmine’ wore a white and gold fully-covered Valentino dress. Too much skin is a no-no, zero skin is a big no-no.

Kerry Washington – The 2014 Oscars were no stranger to the very-pregnant beauties. The ‘Scandal’ star is usually always a stunner on the red carpet, even more so since she sported her cute baby bump, but this year’s Oscar dress wasn’t a good choice. The presenter wore a Jason Wu, strapless lavender gown that looked like a wrinkled, silk sheet clipped by a diamond pendant. She should have re-worn her 2014 Golden Globes dress.

Well, there you have it! My yay’s and nay’s for this years Oscars Best and Worst Dressed. Who were your favorites? Excited to see what 2015 brings.

Rubbish Removal Prices

Those individuals living within Vancouver are struggling from the same widespread troubles -and that is what precisely this articles is all about. Do you know how to get away with your garbage without expending a huge amount of bucks? To people who live within Vancouver, dealing with the pick up companies isn’t just about money. There isn’t any assurance that you’ll have a good treatment from the company that you choose if this is your first time coping with rubbish.

When you are managing a garbage removal business in Vancouver, it would really be tough when it comes to the expenditures of which some, we don’t have any idea about. For some people, removal companies have a high return of investment for they have just few expenses to pay like labor, gasoline and the cost of dumping rates at the dump in Vancouver BC. Unfortunately, there are fees these businesses shoulder that individuals are unaware about. The thing is that the city of Vancouver releases new garbage management policies yearly and it’s essential for every businesses to adhere to it when they run their business. Recycling is everyone’s obligation but with these new regulations, our operational expenditures will increase. It was quite convenient for us to accummulate any load of rubbish and deliver everything and dispose it at the dump. New laws require a junk pick up company to categorize the waste they have compiled and dump it in different areas around Vancouver BC.

As a matter of fact, trash disposal is a type of service, which isn’t necessary for the remaining year. It is among those services that you need maybe few times every year. Make sure to make things right. You ought to ensure that you select waste disposal services with cheap prices but at the same time, reflects top quality. When deciding on the best waste pick up provider, make sure you are assessing prices and services of the same nature.

The costs of waste depend on the volume obtained. Businesses use trucks measuring 9 cubic yards, though it differs sometime. The size of the business determines rubbish disposal fees which generally starts off around $500 to $730. Take notice that you may hear some startling estimations so brace yourself in advance. A few of our clients asked for quotations from a new waste disposal provider which presented them with $1600 for each load. Such arrangement is totally ridiculous if that’s what a company in Vancouver BC is carrying out. The thing with rates in the market is that companies that offer their services in Vancouver someway made little tricks to incorporate additional fees to customers invoice without them knowing it. A number of companies will not include the dumping rates to the quotation they’ve given you at the beginning of the deal and when you thought you are going to pay around $400 for everything, you get surprised as there is more. Such type of trick by a garbage disposal firm is considered usual in British Columbia. If you want to compare pick up rates, the key is to have the whole expense of their services, and total cost, it must include labour, taxes, hauling fees and other added prices.

Remember that whenever you choose several items, chances are high you will need to spend another set of charges. For example the city of Vancouver laws need all beds or box springs to be reused. The metal and wood is taken off the box spring for recycling. Taking apart the mattress and box spring is not a straightforward procedure and therefore, rubbish disposal businesses are charged extra prices on top of the removal prices. The client will have to pay for that amount.

You must also know that one or two things like a house furniture indicates a certain pick up fee for each. For instance a couch could cost from $50-$100. For single items you should watch out for small companies which are essentially a guy with a truck working part time. The thing with these guys is they’re completely unreliable and a total waste of resources. Always remember that these guys will have to enter in your property. Craigslist have informed people that some would tempt you with very affordable house services only to case your home for their evil motive.

Take note of the mobile numbers of a garbage disposal company that has pleased you. Here is a good example of a rubbish removal business in Vancouver that is surely worth your trust.

Collect Best Artworks From Indian Artists

Lakhan Jat:

Born in 1986 Lakhan Singh Jat an upcoming talented artist from Rajasthan, India. He Received his B.F.A and M.F.A Degree from Rajasthan School of Arts.

Sujith Kumar G.S. Mandya:

Riding along the streets of Mysore, as an art student at Shree Kala Niketana School of Art, what haunted the imagination of Sujith Kumar was not the magnificent palace or the people moving without any hurry along the crowded streets of the laid-back city. Sure, he would sketch monuments and human faces to his heart’s content but rather than the beauty and solitude of humans it was the cycles and auto rickshaws that provoked Sujith’s imagination, thus kindling his creative power. “Cycle is a dream and a carrier of life for the rustic Indian middle class. Every time I look at the same cycle it appears to be a new one to me; in a way it is the cycle of life…” he says. “I can’t see any humanity in city life, there is no peace…. It’s all rat race, but in villages you see the real humanity living in peace…” In a way Sujith talks about going back to nature with his tiny images of cycles. Sujith Kumar’s “Traffic City” is a clever composition depicting in an abstract way the chaos of traffic in the city. The black lines are strong and cross hatched throughout the composition creating an abstract illusion of rush and mayhem. The use of a deep red adds to the title of the composition, though visually we cannot see the other elements, there seems to be a general feeling of unrest. All his compositions focus on one main theme and color and his excellent linear quality depicts the theme. “As a student in Mysore it was a routine for me to draw people, places and objects to my heart’s content,” says this young artist. “My concern had always been to create an object with minimum strokes.” Sujith’s cycle is riding back to nature. From the crowded city scapes to the lush green landscapes of serenity. It is a ride back to the never-ending green..

R.D. ROy:

R.D. Roy born in Kolkata, west bengal in 1979. He taught art from his father and other eminent artists of Calcutta.

2014 Moschino Collection receives great feedback from fashion critics and fans

Designer Jeremy Scott made his runway debut at the 2014 Fall/Winter Fashion Show in Milan, Italy in February 20. In order to pay homage to Franco Moschino in the fashion house that he built, the designer from Missouri went all- out.

There were references to food companies like McDonald’s and Budweiser, food couture (yes, there were candy-bar-wrapper, gummy-bear and popcorn-bag dresses) and there were also references to Rue Cambon (and Chanel), that could be easily pin-pointed as models strutted down the runway in quilted leather jackets and embellished in gold chains.

Massimo Ferretti, chairman of Moschino’s parent company, Aeffe SpA, has said the designer change was necessary.

“Every now and again, fashion needs to be renovated and shaken,” said Ferretti. “Just as Franco did in the eighties.”

What many fashion bloggers anticipated to be a very controversial assortment turned out to be an overall accepted and even liked collection. In fact, the lateness of celebrity Katy Perry, who held up the show for an hour, made the crowd more unpleased than the quirkiness of the collection did. (It went from boos to cheers in a short period of time.)

Refinery29, Vogue, Style.com, and Glam had no complaints. Woman’s Wear Daily only had one complaint – and that was only because of Scott waiting on Perry and leaving fashion mavens waiting for the show to begin.

“Today’s Moschino presentation was a crowd-pleaser. Katy Perry and her friends in the front row were eating it up,” Tim Banks of Style.com said. “Scott’s embrace of consumer culture in the name of Moschino was bright, brash, and ingenious.”

“The crowd certainly lapped it up,” Women’s Wear Daily acknowledged that happy crowd. “From the SpongeBob SquarePants sweaters and leather goods to Scott’s take on slogan chic: a sleek mink coat with ‘Fur Real’ in intarsia and a white leather suit with black splotches reading ‘Cash Cow.’”

Commenters on WWD article also seemed to think that the collection was successful.

“Kudos to Mr. Scott,” commented WWD site visitor Bacchus. “Never did like his work but this seems a fine fit and with the house’s execution, may just be a match made in heaven…”

Facebook users all around loved Scott’s bravery and wit.

“Some much needed wit and humor injected back into fashion again! ….Everything lately has gotten so pretentious and is just a pose that’s trying too hard to be ‘cool’,” Facebook user Eddi Frantz commented. “It was all crumbling under the weight of its own seriousness. Fashion needs to smile a bit more. It’s been a long time.”

Some users didn’t have lengthy, in-depth things to say about it, but still showed their adoration for his work.

“Impossible not to love!” Facebook user Marina Colerato said.

“Nowhere could the appearance of a McDonald’s reference seem so out of context and therefore appear so strong, than in a country that fetishizes its local cuisine, and where fast food has still largely to infiltrate,” Kerry Olson at Vogue wrote. Despite the wackiness of the collection, she praised Scott’s decision to dedicate pieces to conformity. “Smartly, though there was a dedication to some form of conformity too, seen in the label’s ladylike silhouettes; mainly pencil skirts, fitted jackets, and evening coats.”

The biggest downfall of the Moschino show was not the collection itself, but the appearance of Katy Perry (and the fact that she was an hour late). Otherwise, Scott’s collection received good feedback from fashion critics and fans.

“Amazing work! A pure presentation/mirror of our ironic time. Which is what fashion is all about. I was left really high by how intricate and intelligent the collection is. The mixing of the different codes is sooo crazy!!” Facebook user Maria Jaber praised. “You brought many of us faith that you could still play and absorb like a child, and then execute like a master. Chapeau bas! And thank you, a real big thank you Jeremy Scott.”

An Review of the Traditional Nyonya Food

Many western people reckon that all Asian cuisine are spicy and exotic. Whilst it might be true, there are still some milder dishes that can be appreciated by all.

If you are among the many lot that think in this manner, I have a very good news for you.Kapitan chicken is a dish that is comes from Malaysia, due to the cross cultural impact of culinary skills of the Malay towards the local Chinese group. This is one of the most legendary dishes served in most Nyonya restaurants.

If a person read the history of Malaysia, you will discover that this country had been colonized by the British, Portuguese and the Dutch since 15th centuries. Throughout the colonial time of Portuguese, the leader of the Chinese clan was recognized for the involvement to the society and was conferred the title called Kapitan. The intermarriage between the Chinese and Portuguese especially at the area of Melaka has produced the followings new generation called Peranakan. If has become the mainstream Peranakan cuisine loved by all walks of life in Malaysia.Peranakans meals are also known as Nyonya food as Nyonya means granny or Madam of the strait borned Chinese descendents

Upon going back to his own kitchen, he realized that it was too hot for the British captain and the workers.He improvised the recipe by drastically reduced the quantity of chili and included a number of Chinese ingredients.After he has perfected the dish, he wanted to showcase his new invention to his captain during one of the banquet. To his surprise, the captain enjoyed it very much and the got raved review from all of his visitors.The captain question what’s the name of the dish.The chef planned to satisfy the captain so he quickly said that it was captain’s chicken. Consequently, the name captain’s chicken or Kapitan chicken in the native words has since been used to terms this authentic local food.

Kapitan chicken can be considered as one of the many types of curries in Asia. The basic ingredients of curry are spices that usually includes chillies. However, the spies found in curries from various countries can be quite different. As an example, Indian curries are mostly include a mixture of spices such as cumin, fenugreek and cinnamon.In Japan, the curry is a lot sweeter consistent with many other Japanese meals. For Thai curry, green chilli is one of the major ingredients to prepare the renowned Thai green curry. Lastly, you can find yogurt and milk in some of the curry recipes from India.

Oscar red carpet clutches to swoon over

Can’t wait to tune in and watch all that red carpet glamour about to take over Hollywood this Sunday night?

If it’s not the designer dresses or bedazzled jewels the A-list ladies are modeling for the cameras, it’s their elegant clutches. Those mini must-have purses filled with personal items like gum, lipstick and who knows what else are just as thoughtfully chosen by the star’s stylists as the rest of their ensemble.

One new accessories brand just getting into the mix is Swoon Luxe, a Los Angeles-based luxury collection of handbags, clutches, wallets, backpacks and leather cuffs made from the finest exotic skins including crocodile, snakeskins, lizard and ostrich.

What makes this collection so unique is its “Confessions of a Shopaholic” similarity; the line was created and designed by financial analyst, Helena Reich.

As a young girl, Helena’s parents surrounded her with music and art. When she wasn’t practicing the piano and cello, she would escape into a fantasy world of fashion as she spent hours in her room sketching paper dolls and purses.

In college, Helena studied finance and pursued a career in financial valuation where she consulted with major corporations in mergers & acquisitions and other valuation driven transactions. However, her true love for fashion was always there waiting in the wings. She finally hooked up with executive design consultant Heehyun Park and created Swoon Luxe.

All of Swoon Luxe’s handbags and accessories are hand-crafted by artisans who have dedicated their entire life to the craft. Finding the most skillful artisans in every corner of the world is a painstakingly difficult process. The crocodile bags are made by artisans who only specialize in working with crocodile skins. The ostrich and python skin pieces are hand crafted by craftsmen who specialize in those skins.

In the world of “the wild”, the quality of skins is the foremost concern. The qualities and material costs between a Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus Niloticus) and a Caiman (Crocodilus Fuscus) differ significantly. Nile Crocodiles, along with Australian Saltwater Crocodiles (Porosus Crocodile), are considered the most luxurious and prestigious crocodile skins in the world. Swoon Luxe only purchases the highest rated Nile Crocodile skins that are farm-raised in our pursuit of conserving “the wild”. Their skins are supplied by prestigious leather tanneries located in Singapore, South Africa and Italy.

In fact, the crocodile skins used by Swoon Luxe are imported from a leather & tannery that also provides the skins to the most prestigious and exclusive fashion house in the world.
