It’s difficult to imagine something happening if you can’t see it. Out of sight out of mind. It works when you are trying to forget that break up but it doesn’t work with your health.
Hide the blemishes by using cover-up. Mask the pain by taking Tylenol. Get more energy by drinking caffeine. That may work for a little while but as we hit our 30’s and 40’s, it all catches up. Aging dehydrated skin and weekly headaches.
Take a moment to close your eyes and envision your cells. Go deep into the cellular level. Envision them being alive and active. Envision how you would want to feel and see them behaving that way.
What does healthy mean to you?
Is it energetic?
Is it happy?
Is it free?
Now open your eyes and smile because you have just taken a small actionable step toward a healthier happier you. You envisioned your body in it’s deepest most vulnerable place and connected to the inner you.
A few years ago designers from higher-end fashion to low and every store had a Pink Ribbon recognizing breast cancer. That’s awesome that we associate the pink ribbon to breast cancer, but does it help us know what we can do to prevent? Does it bring it make us feel like we are winning the battle? No! in fact, it every time the gathering happens for runs/walks for Breast cancer awareness we realize that cancer is bigger than us right now. We are hopeless, helpless. We have no idea when that diagnosis is going to hit us. The likeliness that it has hit someone you already know if not yourself is 1 out of 3. REALLY!
Let’s take back our health. It’s ours and we own it. Remember closing your eyes and visualizing your body at a cellular level really healthy and with a smile? That’s a BIG step. Many scientists now because of enough studies say that your state of mind can determine your state of being. The ultimate state is Samadhi. A state of Bliss.
Want real hardcore stats on why is it that you are what you eat as and you are what you think.
Here you have it:
Kris Carr “Ten years ago, this week, I was given exactly 10 years to live. Stage IV cancer, no cure, no treatment, no options. Thankfully, my expiration date was inaccurate. Like many people diagnosed with cancer, my life drastically changed that day. A decade later, I can honestly say that cancer changed my life for the brighter and better.”
Heather Knies was given a death sentence at the age of 24. She battled not one, but two brain tumors — one of them a grade 4 glioblastoma, the same kind of cancer that killed Sen. Edward Kennedy in 2010.
But today, six years later, she is cancer-free, and her doctors at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Arizona cannot explain it. Her latest MRI is clean, and she is neurologically intact. “I also had a great team of doctors and wonderful family and friends with a positive attitude.”
“The mind is so much more powerful than anyone can imagine,” she said. “People believe that when they get cancer, it will kill them. But I never once thought that.”
Valerie Harper “I don’t think of dying,” says Harper, who has been married to Tony Cacciotti since 1987. “I think of being here now.”
In 2009, Harper, who described herself as “a lifelong non-smoker,” was diagnosed with lung cancer, which she beat. But she tells People now; “I’m well past my expiration date already.” She told host Meredith Vieira her secret is a “positive attitude” and a combination of chemotherapy, acupuncture and a special Chinese tea.
The most common factor in these three women the way they think and the way they eat. They all shifted their diets. Kris Karr is famous for the way she now eats after being diagnosed.
Research has shown that a poor diet — one low in antioxidants and other important phytonutrients — and environmental exposure to toxins, like pesticides, can cause your DNA to become damaged. This damage (called a mutation) can affect the ability of your cells to produce energy, can cause your cells to die early resulting in compromised tissue or inflammation, and can even show up years later as cancer. Research also shows that when you exercise you release endorphins that make you happy and want to eat better
When you smile on the outside, you start feeling happy on the inside
Cancer makes you vulnerability. Fear makes you vulnerable. Vulnerability makes you feel you need to numb. You deserve to be happy. You deserve to be healthy
Here are some things you can do to make that change.
- Write down 3 things you do awesome.
- Love with your whole heart
- Practice gratitude and joy
- Make affirmation daily like “I am fearless.”
