Get healthy on the inside
Wednesday, June 22, 2016
Once in a while we look at ourselves in the mirror and realize things don’t look quite like they used to. So we decide to embark on a health regime to
get us in shape. Usually this consists of working out in the form of cardio and weights training in order to improve fitness, strength and muscle tone.
Now that’s all good and well, but what about your ‘inner health’? And I’m not talking probiotics or metamucil. I’m referring to how you feel in your
heart, your stress levels, your emotional stability and the health of your organs, bones, muscles, blood cells and entire energetic system?
If you’re shaking your head and thinking you don’t even know where to begin, let me start by telling you that’s exactly where it starts – in your head. Your mind is what affects the way the energy moves in your body and the energy is in everything. Yes, everything . Have you ever stopped to wonder how you get butterflies in you tummy when you’re nervous?
It’s been well known for thousands of years that how we feel and think has a direct effect on the health of our physical body, however for those of you who need some scientific proof, you’ll be happy to hear that there is some. Renowned cell biologist Bruce Lipton has scientific evidence to prove that the biochemical effects of the brain’s functioning show that the cells of our body are affected by our thoughts. “Positive thoughts have a profound effect on behaviour and genes but only when they are in harmony with subconscious programming. Negative thoughts have an equally powerful effect....when we recognise how these positive and negative beliefs control our biology, we can use this knowledge to create lives filled with health and happiness,” says Lipton.
This really is the missing link when it comes to people’s confusion around seemingly ‘healthy and fit’ people who suddenly fall ill or have a heart attack out of the blue. The truth is, you can be fit without being healthy. And healthy to me encompasses a balance of healthy body, mind and heart. Because we know that if you are super angry all the time - it doesn’t really matter than you can run a marathon – you will certainly have other problems, and most important of all, you will not be happy.
After many years of practice I am happy to report that it does work. I am mostly very happy and content in my heart. Yes I get angry from time to time (just ask my husband), but nothing like I used to and I let things go so much faster. When I experience stress, I recognise it in myself, because I feel it in my body and that is an awareness I never had before. This in itself is usually enough to encourage me to calm down a little. I don’t focus so much on the things I cannot control and worry less about what people think. Having a greater awareness of myself and how I am has given me a great sense of understanding and contentment. Of course I’m always learning and that will continue until the day I die, but for now, I’m happy with how I’m travelling….somewhere in the direction of my enlightened self at the end of the rainbow!
Like exercise and what we eat and drink, this is not something you want to do for just a few weeks or months of the year. This is something you need to do all the time consistently - in order to maintain balance in your whole body. And don’t worry, your body will let you know when you’re not doing it right!
