    7 Healing Gifts from the Heart

    Today we have 7 healing gifts from the heart. Please share them with the people in your life. These gifts are perfect for everyone on your list because they are universal. They fit every size, age group and personality. These gifts are available to everyone, and you don’t have to elbow your way through crowded shopping malls to find them. They don’t cost anything, but in just a few minutes they bring you and your loved ones riches, warmth and cheer. You can use these gifts with the youngest children in your life, the eldest family members, your cousins, co-workers, and friends. They take only a little effort, and the rewards are magnified many times. 7 Healing Gifts from the Heart 1. The gift of listening: Most people think that listening benefits the person who is speaking, but it also benefits the listener. It gives you time to really understand what someone is telling you, and maybe discover something you never knew about them. It takes the pressure off you, because you don’t have to worry about jumping in with your own stories or witty remarks. Really listening means you withhold judgement or advice unless you are asked.

The gift of time and attention: In our go, go, go world, giving people your time and attention is a rare gift. While you are with someone, don’t text or check your email under the table. Be present with them. Remember that most people just want to be understood and feel valued. The mere feeling that you are being heard can be very healing to someone. Paying attention is a precious gift you can give anyone. 3. The gift of sharing: Take a few minutes to share a funny story or joke you heard, a tasty recipe, a lesson learned, or a hope or dream for the New Year. Lend your friend a book that delighted you, some music that moved you, a link to a hilarious cat video on the internet, or a movie that made you laugh out loud. Sharing something that amused or delighted you will lighten your moods and your hearts. 4. The gift of help: Most people need help of some kind, and often the simplest things can make a big difference. For someone with arthritis, you can offer to help them change their round door handles to lever-type handles that are easier to open. You can offer to take some of their clothes to the tailor to replace buttons with zipper pulls or Velcro. People with young children always [caption id="attachment_517" align="alignright" width="300"]Most people need help of some kind. Often the simplest things can make a big difference.

People who have difficulty moving around will be most grateful for help with simple household chores. You can offer to change burned-out light bulbs or to pick up groceries on bad-weather days. 5. The gift of information. If you’ve been reading this newsletter, you’ve discovered many new ways of healing arthritis pain. You’ve learned about exercises such as yoga and Qi Gong. You’ve read about eliminating certain foods such as wheat, or trying some new, healing foods such as turmeric or avocado. You may have bought some of the books we suggested and discovered new ways to heal your joint pain. Why not pass this newsletter along to your friends so they can also get the healing benefits? You can also lend them your favorite new book, or share some new foods that that helped you feel better. Not everyone has the time or ability to research new ways to heal. But if you are reading this, you are one of the lucky ones who does. Sharing the information you learn can launch other people on their journey to health.

The gift of humour: Laughter draws people together. If you stop to think about it, how many times a day do you laugh? Probably not as often as you did when you were a child. In this holiday season, take a few moments to laugh with your family, friends and people you work with. A dose of humor stimulates your endorphins, so it actually makes you healthier. But the main reason to share a chuckle is that laughing just feels good, and spreads warmth and cheer. 7. The gift of thanks: Too often, we don’t take the time to thank people or tell them that we appreciate them. It’s never too late to take a moment out of your busy day to give sincere thanks to people who helped you this year. Send a hand-written card, an email, or an e-card. Better yet, pick up the phone and say “Thank you.” Best of all, visit in person and deliver a big hug. Your kind words, warm touch and expression of sincere appreciation can make all the difference in someone’s day. And now we’d like to thank you for giving us a few moments of your precious time each week. We feel honored and privileged to have spent these past few months with you. We wish you joy and health through the holiday season and look forward to being part of your healing journey in 2015. Happy Holidays! Warmly, the NatraCure team
