I was reading this month’s issue of Pear Magazine in which Scott Jackson shares how he lost 110 lbs. on the raw diet. He said that you need to create a really big “why”, a reason for going raw or for losing weight that will really motivate you and keep you focused. Once you have the “why” the “how” sort of takes care of itself.
Desire is the key! I really want to take my diet to a higher level, cut out all cheating, do more green juices and green smoothies, and cut down on the amount of food I eat. I know it will give me more energy as I’ve experienced this many times over the years for weeks or months at a time. So I have been thinking about creating a really big “why” to help me to move along my path in this direction towards ever increasing health! Yesterday I was inspired to write this below piece, called “When you are truly healthy….” and I think I’m going to use this as my “why”!
When you are truly healthy, you are magnetic! When you are truly healthy you radiate! When you are truly healthy you attract your dreams to you! When you are truly healthy you have so much energy to give, share, and live an amazing life! You attract your mission. You are poised and ready to do the unique work you were meant for! You move forward at the speed of light! You are accelerated! You are living at the speed of life!!! When you are truly healthy you feel so good, look so good, and love the feeling of moving in your body. You have moves.
The real you is able to come out, to shine, your light is shining so bright it is like a gift to the world. You are relaxed and stress-free, your thoughts are positive and loving, your personality is balanced. You are at peace. You are a tool of the angels. You are enjoying each and every moment. You are truly alive!!! You are truly grateful for each thing, person, place, breath, experience, and moment that comes your way. When you are truly healthy, every moment is a prayer, connected.
When you are truly healthy, your presence becomes a healing force. When you are truly healthy your eyes sparkle, shine, glow and dance! When you are truly healthy your family life is harmonious, your relationships are vibrant and exciting. Your mind is clear, your ability to make decisions is sure, you are confident, you are filled with grace. You are a channel for the well-being and joy and magic of the Universe to flow through you! All is well within you and without. You are tapped in to the perfection in all things.
And how can we be truly healthy? Do everything that you already know how to do to be healthy. Eat the highest way you know of, and do the other things that you know contribute to health. Youâ€™ll become more in tune and youâ€™ll get more knowledge, messages and guidance of how to take your health to higher and higher levels. Be sincere in your seeking of health. But do not be hard on yourself. Seek to be true. Be ever more true. Be ever more solid in your resolve. Be ever stronger in your ability to resist going off your path. Be ever more grateful for the gifts of health. Be ever more protective and safeguarding of these gifts of health. Use your health to give back, to share, to give to someone, to give energy to your children, to create something of beauty. And youâ€™ll be given greater health yet.
Is Green Juice and Almond Milk the right path for me to heal my teeth? Iâ€™m worried that Iâ€™ll get too much energy and Iâ€™m not ready spiritually for that much clarity?
Well, then, I just need raise my spiritual energy. Seek to bring in more light. That is a part of my journey I keep coming back to. The part where I canâ€™t change my diet because my spiritual light is not strong enough to handle the energy. And then I know I need to bring more spiritual light into my being. There are so many ways to do that. Pray, dance, exercise, do yoga, meditate, create, give, play, hike in nature, massage my face, give a concert, trust in God, have faith, stop worrying and stressing, sing, chant, release, forgive, clean, organize, work, teach, write, read, talk, or do nothing! Whatever I do for the purpose of bringing more light into my being will work! It is the intention that makes it work. The light is always right there. These tools just allow me to open up to it and bring more of it to my attention. But devoting my attention to anything I love will bring more light into my being.
