I used to think that ‘giving up something’ was the first step to better health; Give up coffee, get more clarity, give up meat, be more energetically sensitive. I know allot of friends that give up fats and oils in their diets, to get thinner, or give up sugar to feel better about their bodies.
After many years of meditating, and letting my ego tell me what was ‘good’ or ‘bad’, I finally created enough space and silence so that I could actively ‘hear’ my angels, and their loving guidance on the subject.
This is what they say to me, and it always resonates as truth, if I begin to veer towards self-denial on a physical, etheric or emotional plain:
Feed yourself so much sweetness in life, that you no longer crave chocolate.
Celebrate the beauty around you, and within you, relish the sensuality of nature, and become the sensual being you yearn to be. Your shape and size are a reflection of the beauty of God(dess), and if you let yourself ‘be’ in this moment, as glorious as your soul truly is, you will spend the day dancing, instead of suffering. Your joints are lubricated by joy, as well as essential fatty acids and oils.
Decide you truly deserve happiness. That’s right, say out loud: “Today I am Happy!!” not with conditions of monetary goals, pant size, perfect job, ideal relationship, or brand new vehicle. Today, decide, that you will be happy, and allow yourself to be! Be happy in the face of a spilled beverage on your new white shirt, with the car that broke down, giving you a few blessed minutes, after the frustration, to meditate and watch the world pass by. Happiness is a state of mind. Our mind’s are all powerful, we are in charge.
Acknowledge grief. Feel it, and weep, and as the tears fall down, let them transform to cleansing waters. Like a river that is rushing past you, let the grief go. If we allow ourselves to feel the feelings, we can transform to a lighter sence of being afterwards. Grief is real. It can be burried beneath anger, or guilt, but if we honor it by truly feeling it, there is a blessing beneath; the river of release has just lightened your being, it has created greater space for joy. Celebrate the warrior(ess) you have been through the situations that caused grief, and stand with pride, for you are brilliant with light, beauty and greater compassion for all of those people and situations you encounter in your future.
Say: “I am rich with abundance, my life and being are ripe with inspiration, integrity and opportunity,” and repeat it, until your ego has shrivelled up, from the strength of your words.
Yes, we can all spend a lifetime tailoring our food choices and exercise regime to the latest and greatest ‘diet,’ but when we centre ourselves into the awareness of what our true cravings are; for love, reassurance, abundance, safety, and joy, then many of the ‘health’ choices, food, and exercise come intuitively. If we make choices based on ‘what is for my highest good’, instead of focusing on self denial or lack, then we are free to let the light, the divine, our angels, guides and higher selves support and encourage us on every level.
May something in this post resonate with your own truth,
