Emotion & Addiction

We all know eating can be both Emotional & Addicting. 

Let's ponder for a moment...

While we ponder, notice how you feel. What thoughts come into your mind. Write them down. See what revelations and truth you are getting for yourself. Because this is about YOU. I am not here to tell anyone what to do. Let the Spirit be the guide. :) 

We know that education and information is wisdom. When we put that wisdom into action-our lives can change and our bodies can heal. 

There are multiple reasons and ties that can be connected to us emotionally with the choices we make, including what we put in our mouth. Both positive and not. 

So let's put on our detective hats and find the reasons why we do the things we do, so that action can come forth and change can begin. And may I suggest, start with a prayer and turn to the Lord in ALL things.

And remember, all things that are good and feel accordingly come from God.

Food is Healing...One Bite at a Time

I recently had the privilege of speaking at a Christ-Centered Healing Conference about how Food is Healing. 

What we put in and on our bodies is one of the most intimate things we can do for ourselves each day. Because we are children of God made after our divine creator we are told to keep our bodies as temples. 1 Cor 3:16-17

Some of my notes from my presentation...

Ultimate Health: God's Gift and Our Personal Responsibility

Love this article! 

So much of our Physical Health is connected through-

1.Faith

2. Social Support and Relationships

3. Marriage and Families

4. Altruism-Serving Others

5. Healthy Life Perception

6. Humor and Laughter

7. Hope

8. Spirituality

9. Forgiveness

10. Prayer

Here are a few quotes from the article:


Faith has been shown to influence microbes, plants, animals, and human beings, even from a distance.

To know who we are and why we are here is essential to good health. Goethe declared: “The greatest evil that can befall man is that he should come to think ill of himself.” Marianne Williamson reminds us who we are in a quote from her classic book A Return to Love:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.” We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. [Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles (New York: HarperPerennial, 1996), chapter 7, section 3, 190–91]

Health is a very broad term involved in every dimension of our lives. Dr. Edward Taub says:
Wellness is the dance of life that celebrates infinite and eternal harmony. It is the dynamic activity of caring for your body as the home for your soul; theenriching quality of striving to fulfill your highest potential; and the elevating state of filling your life with love. To achieve wellness is to attain the point of balance where the energies of body, mind, and spirit are so finely attuned to each other that distinctions between them fade away. [Seven Steps to Self-Healing(New York: DK Publishing, 1996), 24; emphasis in original]

Thoughts, Prayer, Love- THEY MATTER!

This article gives scientific evidence and proof that our thoughts, prayer and love make a difference in the outcome of our food and water. 

What we tell ourselves about what we are eating can dramatically effect the outcome of our health. 

Have the desire to change the way we think about food.

Develop habits of praying over everything we put in and on our bodies.

Avoid being critical of yourself and of the food itself. All living food that was created by God is on earth for a reason-to help sustain and bless our lives and health.

Know that "With God nothing shall be impossible"-Luke 1:37

LOVES!
