I adore the journey we are all on together. It’s magical and light, sometime intense and always encouraging to keep becoming better than the day before! I focus on our body, our temple and the empowering question you should ask of yourself daily. Would I do this to a friend?
Since I’ve been offering the webinar on Leaky Gut Syndrome, many of you have shared your journeys with me. They have made me smile, they have made me cry and they have made me glad that I’m doing what God intends for this leg of the journey.
I get to be the encourager, the knowledge provider, the hope giver and your mentor if you’ve decided to step up your game and take back your health and life!
You get to be the receiver, the healing mind, body and spirit, the giver of life and an encourager to me! Yes you all give that to me through your stories, your kind words, and your trust and belief in me!
It’s a give and take relationship with each other and with ourselves.
While meditating, Deepak Chopra shared some profound wisdom that I thought perfect for where we are in this very moment.
Our first ally is our body, and we want our body to be successful. Our society is obsessed with external images, like size or image or beauty. Think in terms of a successful body, which only has one criteria…adding to your wellbeing.
It’s the body you were born with. It allows us to live in the moment and to keep every mind body process in balance.
How do you get this body? First you decide that your body is your ally and trusted friend. It’s a living dynamic creation.
Anytime you make a choice about how to deal with your body, ask a simple question, is this how I would treat a friend? You will immediately know what to do.
Consideration and care are basic issues between two good friends, which apply to your body which is willing to support you no matter what you ask of it.
This support comes from trillions of cells organized for only one goal, to keep you in balance. When you find yourself resisting the kind of balanced diet, moderate exercise, good sleep and management of stress that you know is good for you, don’t fight with yourself.
Don’t look on the situation as a struggle against weakness or bad habits. Those negative motivations will only wear you down and eventually lead to more frustration.
Instead, celebrate that you have a trusted friend who can travel with you to the farthest and highest goal you set for yourself. If you are about the neglect or mistreat your body, pause and ask yourself. Would I do this to a friend?
The right answer will come to you immediately.
I’ll leave you with this thought: Our body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care. ~ Buddha
