What an impact this paragraph had on me today. Yesterday I was feeling a bit down about my body and general outward appearance. You know those days you’re not feeling your sexiest? Well yesterday was one of those for me.
This morning, after my kundalini yoga session, I sat down to read a few pages from Invincible Living by Guru Jagat. This is a regular practice of mine – I’ll read pages from one of the many books on my bookshelf – my “books of wisdom” – I like to call them. It puts my mind in the right place to embrace the day ahead.
The paragraph I’m referring to was about consciousness, and the immense power our thoughts have on our physical form. Here’s what Guru Jagat says,
“The cells of your body stick together and cluster based on the flow of your consciousness. The whole material world is actually a projection of our individual and collective mind stream. So your body, your physical body, can totally reform based on the projection of your mind.”
“Your whole physical form is a projection of your mind, which means your whole physical form can—and does—change based on your consciousness. And if you are consciously conscious of that, then you can have more direct control and influence over it.”
WOW. How simple this makes it seem. If we think fondly about our body, it will reform to a body we are fond of. Many of us go through our days sending negative messages to our brain about our body – these jeans are so tight – I’ve gained weight; why did I eat that for lunch? – now I feel fat.
If we recognize how significantly our streams of thought (our consciousness) actually affect our body image, we’ll be more far more attuned to what we’re thinking.
So guys – lets agree to change our self-talk TODAY. Let’s speak positively about the beautiful bodies we were given. I know I will!
