A Brief Understanding of the Kabbalah Centre

The Kabbalah Centre is a recognised source of Kabbalistic insight, with 50 locations around the world and more than 5,000 students weekly. The Kabbalah Centre gives physical and web-based learning by providing lectures, prayers, and books, downloads, CDs, and DVDs.

The Kabbalah Centre is a community that supports and provides students with a conducive environment to grow spiritually, develop relationships, and exchange ideas with like-minded people. Kabbalah guides in detail how to traverse the vast terrain to remove every form of pain, chaos, and suffering. The Kabbalah Centre teachings are founded on the Zohar, which is the foundational sacred text of Kabbalistic wisdom. It decodes the mysteries and the universal spiritual system described in the Torah.

Kabbalah is a millennial wisdom that reveals how the Universe and life work. When we mention plenitude, we are not talking about experiencing temporary happiness, which we have all experienced, because connecting with the energy of wholeness means maintaining that satisfaction in a lasting and uninterrupted way. Although millennial, Kabbalah presents a new paradigm of existence, which all areas of our lives emanate from the same root. This philosophy offers a new way of seeing the world, which can bring you the fullness you seek.

The most enjoyable thing about studying Kabbalah is that it does not require you to relinquish your faith or religion. It deepens your understanding of the Universe and gives you more information and tools to understand why some things happen to you. The great Kabbalistic sages have taught that all human beings possess the potential of being great. Kabbalah helps one activate that potential, rejuvenate hope, and have faith that all is well. Kabbalah’s purpose is to bring understanding, clarity, and freedom to our lives.

Kabbalah Centre invites everybody, irrespective of their position in the community or their belief. The Kabbalah Center also offers scholarships to those who strongly desire to study and share Kabbalah, but may not afford the fee. At Kabbalah Centre, they impact the knowledge about understanding the natural forces and spiritual world as well as the inner being that assists participants to live a peaceful life.

Mental Illness Affects One in Five Americans

A new article from The Huffington Post just announced that an estimated one out of every five Americans suffers from a mental health disorder. Along those lines, it is estimated that mental health conditions cost about $1 trillion each year in treatment expenses around the world. The article attempts to bring awareness to mental health issues in the wake of World Mental Health Day so that these issues are seen as public health issues that are worthy of public discussion and a focus on prevention.

 

The article explains that even in 2016, many doctors around the world do not take mental health conditions as seriously as they do other disorders. This is a very serious concern because mental health disorders have the potential to culminate in suicide. Even though most mental illnesses are identified as chronic conditions, very few doctors actually engage in the type of consistent and thorough follow-ups that are required for proper treatment of a chronic illness. This means that many patients are left to either self-medicate or otherwise ignore the symptoms of their mental illness over time.

 

Although many celebrities have utilized their status to champion for more public awareness of mental health issues, there has not been an overwhelming amount of attention devoted to mental health issues in election cycles. It is very rarely talked about as the public health crisis that it actually is, and there are really no public policy reforms being suggested as a way to address mental illness on a nation-wide scale right now. By having public figures speak out about the prevalence of mental illness and that there is absolutely no shame in seeking treatment for it, there has been an increase in the level of general acceptance of mental illness as a problem to be discussed. As more public attention is devoted to mental health issues, there will be a greater demand for increases in funding for research to find new treatments for mental illness as well as for programs focused on the prevention of mental illness. The first step is in greater acceptance of this disorder as a common problem.

Study Shows How Physical and Emotional Stress Can be Deadly Duo

Exercise is vital for maintaining a healthy heart, but exercising as a way of “blowing off steam” can actually have the opposite effect. This is the conclusion of a recent study showing similar rates of heart failure among those who were at the time exercising and those who were angry or upset. It also shows the importance of mind/body interaction.

Published in a journal of the American Heart Association, the study of heart attack sufferers involved some 12,000 citizens of more than 50 countries. According the respondents, 14 percent said they had suffered a heart attack when they were either angry or emotionally upset about something. In a strikingly similar figure, 13 percent had been stricken while they were engaged in some type of strenuous physical exercise. More about this study is available at www.reddit.com/r/Health.

According to Dr. Andrew Smyth, who headed the study, both strenuous physical activity and severe emotional strain have the effect of raising a person’s blood pressure and heart rate, factors that can lead to coronary failure. In cases where both exercise and psychological strain were combined, the risk of heart failure actually tripled. There are other issues that can further increase this risk, including one’s age and weight and whether the person engages in activities that are unhealthy, such as smoking. Commenting specifically on the psychological issue, behavioral scientist Barry Jacobs noted how the study seemed to further prove the close relationship between physical and emotional stress.

Despite its findings, the study indicated that only one in four heart attacks are directly related to either physical or emotional strain. An observer at the British Heart Association noted that most heart attacks stem directly from blockage of the arteries. However, research does show the importance of good physical and psychological health, both of which can be enhanced through moderate exercise.

The Reality of the Mental Health Crisis in America

Most people think about physical health when they consider health in general, and this makes sense. But it’s important to remember that our mental health is a large part of our overall well-being as well. Fortunately, an increasing number of people and agencies are realizing that looking at mental health is vital, and we are also collectively realizing that this area of well being often goes by the wayside.

 

The Realities of Mental Health in America

 

First, let’s start by saying that more than a fifth of Americans have some sort of mental health disorder at any given time during the year. Mental health disorders run the gamut from smaller, livable conditions, such as occasional depression or anxiety to serious, debilitating issues such as bipolar disorder.

 

Research in all areas of mental health are improving, and that’s the good news. The bad news starts with the fact that suicide rates have been creeping up in recent years. In the last 20 years, for example, suicide rates in young girls and teens have nearly doubled. This is a public health issue that must be addressed, and because it’s happening in such young people, the issue truly needs to be looked at for elementary kids, middle school students and high school students in addition to adults.

 

Another thing to be noted about mental health these days is that fact that mental health is expensive. For the whole of the nation, we spent over 200 billion dollars on mental health disorders in one recent year alone.

 

Finally, likely the biggest issue surrounding mental health right now is how much attention is paid to it where doctors and general health care are concerned. General practitioners do not tend to focus on mental health care even though they should. They may ask questions pertaining to overall mood, but the serious questions are rarely asked, and when patients do bring up something like depression or severe anxiety, the response from doctors is usually quick and fleeting, and the solutions are glossed over or vague.

 

On the individual level, we all should be sure to take a hard look at our own mental health and be our own best advocates.

The Need to Speak on Mental Health

Lawmakers in Texas Need to Discuss the Workforce’s Mental Health

All forms of health are important to a person’s well being, be it physical, mental, spiritual or emotional.

Sometimes, however, mental health can be taken for granted and not as well appreciated as other forms of bodily health. The state of Texas may have fallen victim to this because there is a serious shortage of mental health workers in the state. To be more specific, last year there were 185 Texas counties out of 254 that lacked a single psychiatrist, meaning three million Texans had no psychiatrist on standby when they needed one.

It gets worse when the fact that 40 counties did not have a licensed clinical social worker available, and this isn’t a new thing, either. The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health issued a report about five years ago detailing how there was a serious shortage of mental health aides in Texas and at this point it’s become a reality rather than a mere crisis.

Before even figuring out how to tackle the issue, it should be made known that the economic value of having good mental health services is related to the avoided costs of hospital admissions and involvement in the justice system. However, efficient mental health services can improve the overall workplace and cut down on lost work days. A good way to reform this is to look at the fact that having improved and integrated health care will fix the issue since most adults with mental health issues also have physical ones.

Another way to correct the problem is increasing reimbursement rates on practicing health facilities to customers with Medicaid.
