In my years as a energy healer and life coach I have realized that the well being of the physical body is connected to thoughts of well being.
Remember a few years back when there was a commercial on TV that stated, “You are what you eat”?
Let’s change it around a bit to “You are what you think”.
Young children don’t give a second thought to how their body looks. They are aware of well being and they experience and express it without any thought to how big their tummies are, whether their diaper makes them look fat or any of the other silly things we are told to think about our bodies as we grow older.
Your body is a marvelous thing, just think for a moment about how everything works in harmony so that you think, imagine, walk, run, move your arms, talk, see, smell, see and experience life through the use of this fantastic house for your awareness.
Your body is a perfect body, working in unison with all it’s parts, a lot of them without your even doing anything. You breathe, digest, your heart beats, toxins are eliminated, fuel is stored for later use all without your having to do anything.
The only problem with your body is your thinking.
That’s right, your thinking is at the root of whatever you entertain as “wrong with you”.
These thoughts were offered to you by others who had also been brainwashed into thinking that unless their body was like someone else’s that it wasn’t good enough.
Perhaps you’ve believed for years that being fat, sick, tired, not athletic were your lot in life.
You have made it so by thinking and believing it to be so.
Scientists have proven that every seven years every single cell in your body is brand new. Some cells don’t take this long to renew, but even the most complicated cell within your body is new every 7 years.
Your body is a perfect self healing living organism. It doesn’t need you to direct it to heal a broken bone, balance a cold or flu. It does it because that’s the way it works.
You only slow it down and disturb the flow of positive energy with your thinking.
Or.. you can enhance your body’s natural healing and restorative powers by lining your thinking up with what is natural to you.
Change your thinking and your body will respond to your new thoughts, beliefs and expectations.
As you a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
This means that your beliefs are instructions to your body which it follows to the letter.
It’s very important to be in vibrational harmony with what you really desire to experience within your body. Thoughts of it’s genetic, my family is fat, we are prone to this dis-ease or another all promote those very things.
Rather than giving your body instructions that you really don’t wish to experience, change your thinking to line up with what you do wish.
Research has shown that when athletes imagine themselves running, jumping, playing their sport, the body does not know the difference between really doing it and imagining doing it. This is powerful information. Using the power of your thoughts and imagination you can shift your body’s size, strength and physical abilities the same way the Olympic athletes do.
Begin this renewal process by loving and being thankful for your body.
Appreciate all the wonderful things you can experience due to having a body.
You can feel hugs, kisses, smell, taste, think, move, run, jump, talk, dream; your body is a wonderful manifestation that allows you to enjoy the physical world.
During the day be aware of how effortlessly your mind and body works to allow you to walk, sit, speak.
Pay attention to how different movements feel to you, enjoy the sensation of muscles moving to allow your legs to stand and walk.
Watch your hand and fingers work as you grasp your cup to sip coffee or cola.
Celebrate the sensation of taste as delicious food enters your mouth. Taste is enhanced by smell, enjoy the scent of your food and let each bite be a party in your mouth.
As you begin to pay more attention to the magic of your body you will feel more gratitude for it.
The more grateful you are and the more you line up your thoughts with how you wish to experience your physical body, the more quickly it responds to your thoughts, gratitude and new mental picture of it.
Be like a little baby with your body, Let each movement be brand new, be fascinated by how it works and how it feels.
Hug yourself, tell yourself how wonderful, strong and delightful you are throughout the day.
Watch that self talk about your body. It’s helpful to write down on paper all the thoughts you have about your body. Writing them down makes you aware of the messages, the instructions you have been giving your body over the years.
If you are having an issue with weight, also add your thoughts about food to your list. Pay attention to these, they are the instructions you are giving to your body.
Your body is created to use food and exercise like your car uses water, oil and gas. Your car doesn’t say, “oh, no, that grade of gas makes me fat”.
Food does not make your body fat either.. your thoughts .. those beliefs.. they are what make your body fat.
The size of your body is not a determination of it’s well being and fitness. Reprogram your thinking on this issue to understand and know that being fit, strong are more important than being a certain size of clothes or a particular weight.
As you work through the process of changing your thoughts use these affirmations to aid you.
Print them out or write them down to read throughout the day. By choosing to think these thoughts you will replace the old thinking and the old instructions into ones that better suit your desires for your body.
