Here we are in the middle of Mercury in Retrograde. This can be a time of emotional turmoil and accidental miscommunications. It can also serve as a time for us to refine our skills in finding and maintaining the balance of our emotions. 
 
It’s not just that we are at a certain chronological human age and the planets are affecting our feelings. We are in the beginning of the Golden Age of humanity. Our sense of time has sped up. Our perception is that time has been shortened. As the veil of forgetfulness and the dimensions are closer, we are experiencing challenges as our light bodies are vibrating higher and faster, our DNA is changing for our human bodies to accept more love and light and we are experiencing the connection to one another and everything on planet Earth, even stronger than before. We are feeling more.
 
As the global consciousness of Oneness and more people on the planet are awakening, there is a realization we are not alone in the Universe. We have abilities to use our other senses for communication and our gifts for healing. There is a shift in the Universe vibration. In other words, people who are not “awake” and are stuck in their materialistic, harmful, controlling view of the world, are digging their heels deeper in the dirt. Those who are just now awakening, are feeling the old program of harming others, no longer resonates in their hearts, and are coming clean by “confessing” on media platforms. They are called whistle blowers. If you watch the network news lately, you have heard these stories. Imagine for a moment how much the whistle blower is sacrificing. You know there is a lot of intense feelings in this type of activity. And because we are all connected, we are feeling their emotional turmoil too. 
 
As we continue our vibrational shift of ascension, we are going to see and feel more of the emotional turmoil that comes with significant change in the old selfish, greedy, and harmful programs toward humanity and Mother Earth. At the same time, we must remember the external reflects the internal. This means each of us needs to journey inward and explore what is it inside of us that is causing the battle between people, governments and countries. The more of us who are clearing out the issues inside of us, forgiving ourselves, and loving ourselves, the more whistle blowers will come forward and instigate the change you want to see in the world. Remember the saying: “If you want others to change, change yourself.” Everything starts with us. 
Let us also remember, the whistle blowers need us to send them love, compassion, forgiveness, strength and courage. Holding the belief that anyone can change, and sending compassion and forgiveness to those who want to harm the planet and others, will do more for our world, than to send thoughts and speak of condemnation, anger, revenge and hate. 
 
There are several ways to balance our emotions. Some people use walking, working out their muscles at a gym, hiking in the mountains, bicycling, swimming in the ocean, lake or pool, hobbies and crafts, to name a few. Meditation is by far, the best and the most powerful tool we have in our spiritual medicine box, to heal the imbalance of our emotions. Yoga and Tai Chi also promote our ability to remain calm, serene and content, while everything and everyone around us, is in utter chaos. These two forms of human movement and posture, work with the breath to enhance chakra health and optimum internal organ function. It's important to remember we cannot just work and not have regular exercise incorporated into our schedules. 
 
What types of activities are you doing to promote your emotional balance?
 
Blessings and joy!

I agree with you, Barbara! Yoga and especially Chakra Balancing exercises and meditations help to keep one's emotional balance. I do them daily but the one thing which works best for me is the walks that I take with my pet child Coco. I remember at University one of the compulsory subjects in First Year was Foundations of New World History which starts with the Aztecs, Incas and Mayas and traces history all the way through the Red Indians and uptil the American Civil War. When we were studying the Red Indians of America, our Professor told us about the culture and societal system of identifying with animals and nature. When I look back in time, I think it was a lesson in the philosophy of living – me and my pet child balanced in nature!

So it sounds as if moving and breathing are the basics for stabilizing during this tumultuous time, however we do that.  Am I right, Barbara?

I agree with you Sharon. Breath is very important. We would not be alive without it and it is one of the healing modalities we all carry with us. Thank you for your comment!!

I hear you Anita. Exercise and stretches are a challenge after injuries and surgical procedures. From your inspirational posts, I imagine you will succeed!

For me, spending time reading my Bible and communicating with my Creator is what keeps me balanced. There is such great information in there!  🙂  Besides, he created me so he knows me better than anyone else does; never disappoints, always listening, so merciful… Can you tell I like this time in meditation?  Tee-hee… Great share, Barbara! <3

Nice post! It is an intersting concept – balancing emotion, an immaterial aspect of man, through the movement of the material aspect – the body. But yoga, tai chi, and meditation are more spiritual exercises than physical right?

Thank you Lorii! To answer your question, there are more than physical benefits to yoga, Tai Chi and meditation. The spiritual Tai Chi that I practice, apply, and teach, is both meditation in movement and a powerful exercise that heals the physical, emotional, etheric and spiritual bodies. Tai Chi is the basis of all martial arts. Qi Gong, which to me is not separate from Tai Chi, taps into one’s inner power and strengthens a person’s will, resolve, and harmony, in addition to the balancing and healing attributes it bestows. I practice an ancient yoga that benefits all body systems, including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, through meditation and exercises.
