We are One

Healthy Living Guide

We all hear what we should be doing to stay healthy every day and from a multitude of sources.  Who do you trust?  Is it “mother knows best”?  Sometimes, so let me share with you what I have discerned over the years from all this “advice”.  I will share this in a bullet format for easier navigation and retention.

  • Learn to listen to your inner guidance or intuition. In ACIM they call it the “Voice for God”.  No matter what you call it, know the difference between your ego voice or little-self speaking to you and your higher or God-self speaking.  If you are interested in learning more about this contact me, I can help.
  • Think Healthy! The power of the mind is not to be underestimated.   The life you live follows this format, Thoughts – Words – Action.  First you accept a thought (not all thoughts come from you, so whatever you accept then becomes yours), then you share it with others who either support it or not, then you take action on this thought and it becomes your reality.  Obviously this is a very simplistic explanation, but this basic understanding is vital to making positive changes in your life, changes you actually desire.
  • Meditate! Meditate! Meditate! Make meditation a daily conscious practice.  Everyone meditates unconsciously every day and this keeps them in the groove where they are.  So if you wish to rise out of that groove, to learn and grow, conscious meditation is crucial.  Several ways to do this and I talk about this in my eBook, Methods of Raising Our Energy, a free download from my website.
  • Exercise is what firms the body. It does not have to be complicated or difficult, but the more you move the stronger the body becomes… to a point, anything can be taken to excess.  Take the stairs always and everywhere, stay active at home, and walk instead of drive whenever you can.  Do stretching exercises and isometrics when you are at your desk or watching TV.  None of this is formal exercising, so you can do that too if you desire.
  • Consume life in moderation. Meaning all the things humans do which comprise life, eating, drinking, sex, sports, hobbies, etc.  Be conscious of what you are participating in.  Question everything!  Just because someone is an expert or a family member or a friend does not mean they know what is best for you.  All they can do is speak for themselves.  Don’t allow yourself to be caught in the flow or tide of mass action.  Just because others are doing it does not make it good for you.  This goes back to intuition, listen to your inner voice before any others.
  • Stick to natural foods, the less processing the better. (Junk food: food that has low nutritional value, typically produced in the form of packaged foods needing little or no preparation.) The healthiest diet known to mankind is a Raw Food diet. I know this can be difficult in our present society so do some research and do the best you can.  Learn about the alkalinity of foods, the less acid the better. (This is just a blog, but if you have questions please ask)  In our modern day society we have destroyed the nutrients in our food and modified others so much they are no longer healthy to eat.  Gluten foods, wheat, barley, rye, and oats should be eliminated from your diet.  This video explains it nicely:
  • Fasting and detoxification should be done on a regular basis. I do a 12hr fast every day and a three day fast once or twice a year.  The detox can be done at the same time when you supplement with organic apple juice.  There are many programs out there to detox so research this and choose something which you feel is do-able.  It is scary at first, then you realize how good it feels when you are done and it gets easier the next time.  This practice aligns with the Law of Rhythm and promotes good health.
  • Food is nutrition, not pleasure. Understand that eating can be enjoyable, but this is not its purpose.  Remember this and accept that some things which are good for you nutritionally do not necessarily taste good, eat them anyway.  Eat foods by color and as they say, “eat the rainbow”.  If all your food is one color; then you are out of balance.  Eating can be a meditation or at least a conscious act to feed the body and soul.  Think positively about your food, say grace, and be grateful for the energy this food brings to you.

This is the short list as this could easily be a book.  I have provided a few links to make researching a little easier.  Every question has an answer, so just relax and ask questions while being open to the answer, it may not be what you want to hear.

Physical Energy

Part two of this series on creative methods of coping with transition.  Do you love to exercise?  Well, even if you don’t the very act of being physically active will boost your energy and help to release any anxiety you may have.  Remember that an object in motion tends to stay in motion, so the more active you are the more energy you will have.  Of course it helps to enjoy yourself while you are exercising. 

Joy compounds the benefits tremendously, so find an activity that you enjoy.  The options are almost endless, so be creative and experiment some.  Personally I enjoy walking about as much as anything, bicycle riding used to be a favorite as did swimming.  I find as I am aging that walking works the best for me in the most environments.  The environment in which you do your activity will make a difference also, so choose a place that you like and are comfortable in.  Even if you are in the city there are places to walk like parks , malls, gyms or the neighborhood.  If you live on a farm you are most likely getting plenty of exercise doing the daily chores, but if not get out and have some fun!   Gardening is a great way to boost your energy also. 

Both the physical activity and being with the beauty of nature combine to really boost our energy!  For those who are not aware of how the human body works, it can get pretty complex so let’s just keep it simple.  As we move, our bodies use oxygen to fuel the cell functions in our various organs.  The more we move, the more we burn energy and the more oxygen is needed, so the heart and lungs are working harder and harder.  The lungs bring in the air and oxygen is diffused into the blood which is pumped by the heart to the organs of the body.  With practice the body gets used to this activity and is able to handle more and more activity to a point that is only determined by the mind. 

This is evident in the fact that athletes are constantly breaking speed, endurance and skill records!  We are expanding our limits and broadening our beliefs.  The other thing that is happening at a physical level is the brain is releasing chemicals such as endorphins that regulate our perception of pain or discomfort.  These chemicals are very beneficial to our overall health and can be released in other ways as well, such as sexual pleasure and meditation.  There are many good books out on the mind body connection so if you are interested in this just visit the library or surf the net. 

No discussion of physical energy creation would be complete without the inclusion of Tantra.  Tantra’s come in many powerful forms of ritual action but one of the more popular would be sexual tantra such as the Kama Sutra.  When two people come together in sexual passion an incredible amount of energy is released.  Once this is experienced though it can be addictive if a person does not know the source of the energy, so do not take this path lightly.  Joy is the goal, a feeling of oneness with all there is, so focus on that and know that we are conduits to this energy.  Our purpose is to feel, or experience with all our senses and be aware of Source!  We can use such experiences as Tantric Sex as a marker or guide to what it feels like to be one with all there is.   As we focus on the feeling during meditation we are guided to the Joy of Spirit.  As we revisit that feeling it is possible to orgasm simply by imagining it!  Some say that Heaven feels like one big long Orgasm.  I think I am ready….
