HEALTHY MIND = HEALTHY LIFE
There is so much focus these days on healthy diets, fitness and weight loss. Everywhere you look there are lists of “dos” and “don’ts” that can be confusing and restrictive to your lifestyle. Essentially, the most important thing to remember is that having a healthy attitude toward ourselves and our bodies is essential to better health. This is at the core of any healthy lifestyle changes that you make.
Lets begin this by outlining a simple truth: Everything is energy vibrating at a certain frequency. This of course applies to our bodies too. Physical matter (in this case; flesh) consists of a collective of energy which vibrates at a slow enough rate to become dense, or physical in three dimensions.
Our thoughts, emotions and moods deeply impact our physicality because of the way our cellular structure is designed. Our cells are filled with water – which is a perfect element to store, conduct and amplify energy and information (now you know there is a purpose to all that fluid retention!). In a sense, our bodies are designed to operate much like a giant liquid crystal contained in physical form.
When we feel or think something strongly – especially for sustained periods, this alters our overall energy field which begins to reflect our emotion as a lower vibration. This energy is information that is relayed to our physical cells. The cells are programmed to recognise that information as a kind of instruction, and the cell will begin to take on the properties of the information. Certain cells will then relay that information to other cells – just as they do with genetic information. So the body as a whole begins to take on the properties of the energy or information that has been ‘downloaded’ into it.
So then, is it possible to deliberately ‘program’ your cells with certain information? To effectively alter our physicality to reflect our thoughts and emotions? - of course it is!.
By being conscious of what kinds of thoughts and emotions we direct at ourselves and our bodies at any given time, we can alter the overall health and efficiency of the body.
Just imagine – what would happen if, every time you looked into the mirror, you projected thoughts at yourself like; “I think you’re great!”, “I love you”, and “thank you for being you”. Experiment with this for a couple of weeks and see what happens. Take note of any feelings that arise when you do this exercise and work on changing any negative ones that come up into positive thoughts about yourself. It will feel strange at first, but it will make a difference. Not only will you start to feel and look better – but others will begin to notice the changes in you too!.
We ask a lot of our bodies during the course of our lifetime, and our needs change as we age and according to the conditions of our life at the time. The human body is a complex machine which, like any machine, requires regular maintenance and fuel to keep up with our demands. Having a better awareness of just what kinds of fuel is needed at any given time is paramount to assisting our body to operate at optimum efficiency.
So this means following one diet or food regime in the course of a lifetime is not going to work, because you have to adjust your intake according to the changes in your body and your requirements at the time. There is also the fact that each ‘body’ is different to some degree in the way it operates and responds to what you put into it. This is due mostly to genetically inherited factors, and the level of stress your body may be experiencing.
Weight loss diets – contrary to popular opinion – are not the most important thing to maintain health. It’s more about the nature of the food you are putting into your body and how your body is able to process it. Sure you can go on an extreme diet and lose a lot of weight – but be totally miserable and tired all the time as a result. Or, worse case scenario, you can develop a serious health issue as a complication and end your life sooner than you planned. Your family can choose a small coffin instead of a large, but I’m sure that will be cold comfort!.
So a simple rule of thumb would be: If you’re feeling more tired than usual – eat more high-energy foods. Have medical checks to ensure your system is able to convert food to energy efficiently (i.e. that you don’t have any vitamin or mineral deficiency or underlying medical condition). If you’re a very physically active person (i.e. sports and fitness oriented) you will need even more high-energy foods and carbohydrates, since your body will burn through fuel much faster and will need more energy to maintain stamina. This can also be the case if you are under a lot of stress, as your body will burn through a lot of resources in an attempt to keep itself stable and balanced. Also, when you suddenly deny the body enough nutrients and energy, it will try to survive by holding onto any energy it has – so therefore it will just store more fat from everything you eat.
When you feel good about yourself, and you’ve worked on projecting loving, nurturing and positive thoughts and feelings to your body’s cells, you will not only feel better and have more energy - your eyes and skin will be clear, and your hair will soften and become shiny. Your body will naturally shed excess weight (in addition to your appropriate healthy diet and regular exercise). Your aura or energy field will also shine with positivity, and others will notice it too.
