How you treat your body is a direct reflection of how you treat your soul (your higher self, your inner self, your real self). The health of your body is an indirect reflection of how well you have listened to your soul, which is your inner guidance, and which defines your life purpose.
The biggest impact on your health is your emotions, what you put into your mouth is really secondary. However, what you put into your mouth is an indirect reflection of your emotions. Your thoughts control your attitudes and beliefs, which determine your emotions.
For example, if you have a health issue, and all evidence is there that a diet change may be beneficial, but you refuse to try. Your body then is likely suffering more from your negative emotions (fear, lack of self-esteem) than from your actual diet. So if you would like to improve your health, start by examining your attitudes and belief system. As Wayne Dyer says, “Change your thoughts, change your life.”
I had breast cancer three years ago. The moment I was diagnosed, I knew my body was under toxic stress. It didn’t take me long to learn about physical toxins, and a complete diet change which I am still adhering to today without looking back. Along with that physical journey was a subtle but far more important journey: eliminating emotional toxins.
One example was my attitude toward my body’s appearance, which in turn reflected my ingratitude toward my inner divine self. Mastectomy was a ‘God-sent’ process for this emotional awakening. I used to be very embarrassed by my small breasts …until I was about to lose one. Suddenly they didn’t seem so embarrassing anymore! But as ‘luck’ would have it, the plastic surgeons could not possibly reconstruct the one breast without doing an enhancement to the other, so I ended up with a pair of larger breasts, exactly what I had wished for decades!
There is no such thing as luck, good or bad. There is a saying that goes something like “God cannot put anything better into our full hands without taking something away first.” Abraham tells us, “Ask and it is given.” The timing of the answers to our requests is not up to us, and the form the answers take may surprise us, but trust that whatever you think of, you will get. So make sure you think only empowering thoughts! Be patient and have faith in the divine process.
I love how I look now. I used to cringe whenever someone else stood beside me in a public washroom, in front of fluorescent lighted mirrors. My complexion was dull and sickly. But now, I love everything I see! Almost every day, I say to myself in the mirror, “You are beautiful” or “I love you,” in gratitude to the divine source that gave me my remarkable life, full of pleasant surprises, synchronicities and miracles!
Wishing you miraculous transformation as well. Remember, think nurturing fruitful thoughts only!
