“Your thought and beliefs are the single most important indicator of your state of health. Your beliefs and thoughts are wired into your biology. They become your cells, tissues and organs. There’s no supplement, no diet, no medicine, and no exercise regimen that can compare with the power of your thoughts and beliefs. That’s the very first place you need to look when anything goes wrong with your body.”
– Christiane Northrup, M.D., Goddesses Never Age
Christiane goes on to explain that when something does go wrong in your body, it’s a wake-up call to pay attention. Perhaps you haven’t been conscious of the issue or emotion until it shows up physically. Have the courage to go deep within yourself and honestly look at what is going on in your life, what are your thoughts and beliefs that you keep repeating in your mind.
I love reading anything by Dr. Northrup – her insight is invaluable.
“Every minute, about 1 million of your cells die. An equal number of cells are born each minute. Perhaps you implemented lousy epigenetic signals into your old self destructive habits and emotions. But your old cells are on their way out. If you start sending new epigenetic signals to the cells that are just being born, filling your heart with love and your mind with positive thoughts, your new cells might be healthier than the ones they’re replacing. Every single molecule in your brain is replaced every two months. Every single cell in your body is replaced every seven years. So as you give yourself a psycho spiritual makeover, you give yourself an epigenetic makeover too.” – Dawson Church, PhD. The Genie in Your Genes
Take a moment and check into your beliefs regarding each of these statements (provided from The Genie in Your Genes book)…when you ask yourself the following points or state each sentence, how does it resonate in your body. Can you see a link between your thoughts and your health?
- I give myself permission to do what I love
- It’s okay for others to disagree with me
- I am able to function independently of others
- It’s easy for me to receive love from others
- I experience the presence of God within me
- Money is my friend
- My body heals itself naturally and quickly
- It is safe fun and easy for me to be slim and healthy
Take a moment to reflect, to listen to your body as its reaction to these statements. Notice any joy or discomfort. Take time to journal, deep a little deeper and enjoy the process.
During your days, be conscious of your thoughts and remember the power they have on YOU.
Our beliefs trump our genes and biology EVERY TIME! And beliefs about what is appropriate at a certain age are particularly damaging. – Dr. Mario Martinez
