Prep Course Part 7 – Using The Inner Work Module of the Program
The inner work module or part of the program is very dear to my heart.
I will tell you why. At one point when I was having trouble staying healthy on a raw diet and going off the raw diet and indulging in food addictions I realized that I did better staying raw or staying on a healthy diet when I was happy.
I realized that it is really difficult to choose life as in making healthy decisions if you are miserable with your life. So I started really doing some inner work over the course of many years and learned that it takes some effort to cultivate happiness.
I was really fortunate to have certain highly effective modalities, practices and philosophies fall into my lap through various books and people I met.
For this program I have pulled together some of the most helpful exercises, practices and motivational reading that helped me on my path.
Some of these modalities include:
– The work of Byron Katie which is dedicated to sanity through questioning your own thoughts. It is a process called “inquiry” and it can easily restore instant sanity to a mind stuck in negative thought-forms.
– Emotional Brain Training (EBT) which helps you to really get in touch with your own feelings, identify them and process them effectively to reduce your stress level and to bring your default emotional brain state closer to joy. The practice is fun and has an instant stress-reducing impact!
I also touch on the essence or basics of several different practices from meditation to deep breathing to tapping to release technique and more.
I have shared practical tools for achieving some of the most useful things that I found in my healing journey including forgiveness, positivity, gratitude and self-love.
There are several journal exercises that are used to help you to get to know yourself better and to get you to spend time thinking about what makes you happy, what you enjoy, what you want, and more.
My hope is that by trying many different varieties of inner work that you will find something that resonates with you and that you may continue to use this as a daily practice.
I also hope that the wonderful array of practices, motivational reading and journal exercises that comprise the inner work mode module of this program will give you great momentum and excitement as you grow on your inner journey that will also support you in easily making the healthiest choices for yourself.
I think of it as a critical mass of positive changes taking place on on all levels of your life; diet, exercise and happiness all contributing to each other and giving you a great momentum in which you feel so much better really quickly so that you’ll be inspired to continue on and thus experience a huge change on every level in your life.
The inner work module is contained in the daily instructions and mini e-books. The daily instructions will let you know when to read the various mini e-books. Some days the inner work will consist of a journal exercise or some motivational reading (either through the mini e-books or some article contained within the daily instructions email).
Some days the inner work will consist of a practice to do during your day such as a breathing exercise or a list to make or a way of thinking and noticing things about yourself or your experiences in the day.
On some days there may be two or more inner work components; perhaps something to read and something to journal about. This is all of course totally optional. I hope that you will avail yourself of the inner work module because I believe that it can be very beneficial in helping you attain your health goals.
There are three keys to healthy living:
They act as a cycle, each one supporting the other. And you can tap in at any point in the cycle to start building momentum.
Momentum is when you start doing something very difficult, very heavy, such as changing your habits, and at first it takes a great deal of your energy to push it, to get it moving, but as you keep pushing you gain momentum and the thing itself takes on an energy of its own and continues to accelerate without almost any energy on your part!
Picture a flywheel. It is very heavy to start it moving but its own weight keeps it moving once it gets going fast enough. Or picture a rocket ship. It takes tremendous energy to get it off the ground. But once it blasts out of the gravitational pull, it levels out and coasts at incredible speed in orbit with no fuel at all.
Your weight release or healing journey is similarly heavy and difficult to start, but if we can launch with enough momentum, the journey can become easy and almost effortless – in fact, even fun – very quickly!
That’s what this trifecta of Modules (Diet, Exercise and Happiness) in this Program is designed to do. It’s a triple-threat, three-engines of “change” – which is the fuel that is going to power us to another dimension!
When you improve your diet, you have more energy to exercise. When you exercise, you get happier. When you are happier, it is easier to eat healthy! And thus the cycle takes you on a positive upward spiral, a thermal wind that you can coast on up to lofty heights!
Or you can start with exercise. Then you’ll find you get happy. So suddenly you are making positive food choices. And now you are able to exercise more because you’re healthier. You’ve tapped into the same spiral from a different starting point.
Or start with happiness. You get happy. Then you make positive food choices. Now you have the energy to exercise! And you’re on a Positive Health Cycle!
With this program, we are going to start all three engines at once. You’ll be eating the healthiest diet on the planet. You’ll be moving your body for at least 30 minutes a day. And you’ll be doing some inner work, nurturing your emotional body / spirit for a block of time each day.
Any one of these three changes would be enough to launch you, but all three together are going to give you so much momentum that you will be literally unstoppable – no matter what roadblocks you are used to throwing up for yourself and no matter what factors come along to try to derail you, you are going to be able to blast through and continue on your journey to health, happiness, and wellbeing!
See what a world of good you can do yourself with a little attention focused inward on yourself each day, along with a delicious, healthy menu plan and 30 minutes of exercise a day! Today is the last day to sign up for the next session!
