Are things toxic in your life, causing you problems? Are you ill; have a disease? You know, it’s been decades already since scientific medical information has been released proving the mind body spirit connection.

It’s time to strengthen a muscle you may not know you have. Our thoughts produce molecules, chemicals, and every cell in the body has receptors. Even the chemicals we release from tears vary if they are sad or happy tears. Every time we think painful thoughts we create toxins in our body. Maybe this has gone on for a lifetime or lifetimes and we came in with the manifestation of the past showing in our body or minds.

This muscle doesn’t get exercised at the gym. You can take the reins of your pain or pleasure. It narrows down to those two. Pain can manifest from repressed or out of control expressed anger, sadness, guilt, depression; you can name the rest. Those thoughts carry toxins that can manifest in emotional or bodily pain. And thoughts carry into words, so listen to yourself silently or what you hear yourself say.

For instance, how is your environment, how are your relationships, bitter and bickering? Do you belittle yourself? You, alone, have choice to change your mind and/or change your experience.

For example, instead of feeling angst over what you are eating, change your mind and enjoy. If you are valuing yourself as less than, for any reason, accept and honor yourself as you are, right now. You have just changed the chemicals you released and done your body a big favor. You can also reprogram some better choices simply by using your mind alone.

Using your thoughts, experiment with putting your focus and imagination on what you desire to see happen. Do you visualize yourself happily eating healthy or moving your body more? In your mind’s eye can you make a vision of you stubbing out those things you smoke?

How about seeing yourself putting your hand over a glass of alcohol, saying no more, thank you. The field of imagination and quick visualization is limitless, and takes less time than it takes to talk yourself out of it. You don’t have to make it a vigilant habit right off the bat, remember it’s all about pleasure and not the perception of something that is painful to you. You can do it for a fun experiment.

Your eternal spirit would like you to move past bickerings and not take things so seriously, investing more focus on how much pleasure is available to you by not wasting time on that stuff. In the grand scheme of things, you are causing yourself either toxic chemicals to invade your body or healthy molecules to disperse healing instead.

Instead of getting wrapped up in the angers and fears of national or world news, change your mind. Be in the world but not of it. You can just as easily have your opinion and side on the side you believe is right without anger. Get back to your own life and world and use that same time for something pleasurable. You may even notice how your whole body feels more relaxed and healthy, and over time low and behold, see how you have healed.  Even the Bible says, physician heal thyself.

Instead of fearing the job may be snatched away from you by the economy or a perceived underhanded ploy, take your power back and make your plan B and C, without needing to plot revenge. The revenge chemicals would be poisoning You! Isn’t it better, for your literal health, to be away from an environment of underhandedness anyway?

Look at things like that gratefully; as nothing more than a spiritual tap on the shoulder for your own good, serving to make your perception and happy muscle stronger. That’s loving yourself.

No one causes another a heart attack. You are in control of your own thoughts. You may think that the man who is marrying your daughter is not good for her and carry the anger and toxic chemicals for a long ride into your own system, and come to find out later that you may have been right, but gained a beautiful granddaughter and got to witness your daughter find her personal power by going through a friendly separation.

There is a greater divine knowing that desires for us to take things lightly and knows very well why things may not look on the surface that they are going your way, but if you wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, you will see there is always an underlying higher purpose for all that goes on.

You have the power to turn the toxic into health, and turn health into toxicity. Eating right around toxic people will change the molecules. Eating so-called wrong may not harm you when loving yourself.

The body’s cells are replaced regularly; the stomach lining about every 4 days, the liver about every 5 weeks, a new layer of skin about every 3 weeks. Nearly the entire body’s atoms are new about every year. The chemicals we produce have either made us weak and susceptible or strong and resistant to disease.

Fearing, worrying about, or reviewing a negative experience can produce even more toxic chemicals than the experience as it happens, because in the moment we can make decisions about the best way to handle a situation.

Have you noticed some young people look and act old, and some much older people look and act young? A bigger person may be very healthy and a thin person fraught with ailments. It’s not their genes. It’s their mental and loving choices, or not. Never too late to change, so toast to pleasurable attitudes and loving choices. Let’s literally remake ourselves. To our health!
