Crazy weather patterns can challenge your immune system, but there are many things you can do to stay healthy.
1. Handwashing ~ Washing your hands is the single most effective way to stop spreading germs. It helps you to stay healthy, and it is an act of kindness to everyone around you. Proper handwashing includes four elements: warm water, soap, 15-20 seconds of friction, and thoroughly drying with a towel. So remember:
2. Affirmations ~ Try saying this affirmation to yourself anytime you feel “on the edge” of “something”… “I have faith in my immune system.” This is a good one to say at times when you might feel nervous about catching something, such as when you’re eating with someone who did not wash their hands (and you don’t have the nerve to say something), or when you’re in a store and someone near you is coughing and sneezing. In such situations, calmly think to yourself “I have faith in my immune system.”
3. Strengthening the protective shield around your energy field ~ Begin by intending to create a force field around your energy field. You can gently push away any “other” energies with your hands, and then intend that there be a strong protective shield around you. You can imagine this force field filling up with mantras, blessings, and presences of protective beings (in alignment with your religion or other cosmic belief system). Spend a few minutes each morning and/or each evening doing this practice, and your immune system will strengthen. (This is one of many practices described in the Radiance Rising section at the beginning of my new book, The Tejaswini Ramayana: The Way of Rama in the Shakahara StarFire Universes.)
Being happy also helps the immune system, as explained in a previous blog “Protection Prayer When Grieving”… So anything you can do to Happy Up will strengthen your immune system. For that, see this previous blog “StarFire Teja’s Ten Tips for Happy-ing Up During the Wintertime Blues.”
