Think about it. You eat something, which separates into nutrients, and then chemical elements. Those go into your blood and cells and build your body. They become you. If they are mostly aluminum, you’ll be Wizard of Oz’s Tin Man 🙂 and if they are mostly oxygen, or carbon, you’ll be an organic person 🙂 . It’s quite easy to comprehend. In the same manner, if you eat acidic foods, you’ll get acid thoughts.
It is a custom for me to do some real deep house cleaning as the new year approaches. However, this is not the only time of the year when I clean my house :), in case you were wondering. I could well have chosen any other time for this laborious task, as you may say there’s no difference from today to tomorrow, however there is a reason why the calendars are the way they are, and that is to do with the energy in the stars/planets, and their various cycles. It’s the end of an energetic cycle, the beginning of another one, so a good time to clean.
For me, Singing has always been a deep task. Emotional as well as physical. The fulfillment one experiences while on a high when singing, is scaringly similar to what happens during the sexual act. One feels abundance, glory, a vessel that has been fulfilled thanks to the right vibrations (and what is the sound of voice, if not vibration?).
Every day we have an incredible opportunity to connect to our life’s purpose, through the mysterious activity of Sleep. But we often miss it. We dismiss our dreams, as we aren’t educated to understand them. Our sleeping time is sacred, and it must be honoured accordingly. As we go about life, we accumulate a debt of hours of non-sleep, making our body suffer from the failure of regeneration. This lack of sleep makes us fail in decision making, in emotional responses, and in becoming disconnected from our sense of purpose (our life’s calling) due to the fatigue created. Sleeping is the only time where those who can’t let go of control, do let go 🙂 It’s a gentle reminder of our mere human state.
The muse comes from above, ready to flow in the means that has chosen: writing, singing, painting, acting, etc. This needs to be put into action, physically (voice, hands, body), in order for the world to perceive our art. So our body needs to move. We need our body to be strong and with energy in order to raise a strong signal. Physical motion brings us to the now. It brings whatever dream or creation we have in the mind, to earth. If we are stagnant, the flow is slow, it can even get stuck.
It’s not easy to have the willpower to follow a diet when one has an energetic footprint from other lives that conditions the current behaviours, preferences, orientations, lacks and blockages in the present body. Plus it’s not just our own individual life’s journey, but also our parental, social and environmental baggage that affects who we are and the shape of our body (including where we tend to store fat and water). So let us see how these stored pieces of energy can determine our predisposition to overeat, no matter how willing we are to change… we might always come back to the same patterns, if we don’t heal the root cause, i.e. the trauma.
