Sometimes it takes a unique and off-the-wall exercise to help release deeply seated emotional blockages.  Alla Svirinskaya in her book Energy Secrets The Ultimate Well-Being Plan, shares the Balloon Exercise to let go of the past.  She claims this exercise will help get rid of old matter which helps bring balance.  You will need a pack of balloons any size or color and a needle before starting Balloon Exercise below:

Dance can be considered a form of non-verbal communication.  ”When Did You Stop Dancing?” Is a question asked by Shamans when someone is depressed.  We can look at dance (the action) as another self- healing modality to use for overall healing and happiness.

Besides connecting with your body, dance helps with balance, improving memory, assists in flexibility, and makes you feel alive.  Also a 21-year study of senior citizens, 75 and older, was led by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, to monitor rates of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. The only physical activity to offer protection against dementia was dancing.  The greatest risk reduction of any activity studied, cognitive or physical was dancing frequently at 76% compared to reading 35% and crossword puzzles at 47%.
