Morning Glory

This morning I didn’t want to wake up and go to work…I wanted to stay in bed and cuddle with my hubby.  However I convinced myself to get up and somehow get to work.  While I was driving I asked myself “Why on Earth would I want to go to work…?”

When I got out of my car then I realised the importance of this morning… I want to describe for you this morning but I don’t know if words can describe the fragnace or the sensations I felt…Such a glory…

The fresh morning breeze kissed my face…after that my morning became quiet; the constant buzz of the traffic noise ceased to exist… I stood up and watched the soft rays of the golden sun hit my eyes…after that I relaxed;  the warmth of the rays made me feel strangely at peace… A sweet smell seeped into the air because of the humidity of the early morning. The air smelled like rain and flowers-white flower to be more precise (I don’t know if someone can tell a difference between the scent of coloured flowers but it felt this way). I filled my lungs with this smell and it poured through me. I felt a different person…

They say that the sense of smell connects to the brain. That certain part of the brain connects to the memories and the feelings. If this morning subconsciously reminded me of a memory I am not aware of, then this morning was more than a gift for me. I felt loved, grateful, relaxed, peaceful and vital. What’s not to love from this morning? This particular smell created a vision of what I can become and this vision can be repeated every morning if i just allow myself to breath the morning glory…

Simple as that…

I am just a breath away…

How many breaths do I/we waste?

 

Can our “junk” DNA change our lives?

Can our “junk” DNA change our lives? Before it was believed that our junk DNA had no biological function. Scientists discovered that DNA can be re-programmed by words because it follows uniform grammar and usage rules virtually identical to those of human language.

Healthy Mind, Healthy Life

Yesterday I received a newsletter from Hay-House. I wanted to share with you the content of this email because like a lot of women going over depression after feeling they have more weight struggle for a few weeks to strict diets, gym centers etc. just to give all up because they pushed theirselves to hard.

It is an abstract from Wayne’s Dyer book:

 “So what are your beliefs about what it takes to be in shape and physically healthy? Is it necessary for a person to suffer every day and go through a rigorous workout routine in order to be in good health physically? These are commonly held beliefs that should be challenged if you’re seeking a more balanced life. Your wish is for a body that looks and feels terrific – that’s the tenth rung desire.

So what kind of thoughts do you entertain in order to reach this desire? All too often your thoughts go something like this: I’m not an active person. It doesn’t matter how much I exercise – I still can’t get the weight off and get in shape. I hate running and sweating. I’m not destined to be athletic. These beliefs, and many like them keep you on the bottom rungs of that ladder. Moreover, they contribute enormously to the obesity crisis, and to the existence of so much lifestyle-related disease that originates in this kind of collective thinking.

When you change your thoughts, and what you believe about what’s possible for you, you change everything, including your physiology. You need to fervently believe that you’re a specimen of perfect health by creating that picture of yourself as looking and feeling great. Carrying this image wherever you go and believing passionately in its reality is a total thought-changer!

Now the inner dialogue will sound more like this: I’m heading in the direction of perfect health. I have no shame or guilt about myself or my behavior. If I choose to be a couch potato, I’ll be a healthy, trim, beautiful couch potato. I love my body. I’m going to take great care of it because it houses the sacred being that I am. As you begin this new ritual of changing the way you look at your body, the body that you’re looking at will change.

You’ve been immersed in a culture that promotes how you should feel about your body, based on commercial endeavors that want to realize profits from your dissatisfaction with yourself. That sales pitch is that if you don’t look like a supermodel, you should feel some remorse. Right there we have the beginnings of eating disorders, obesity, and weakened physical constitutions. When you buy into this kind of collective brainwashing, you set yourself up for a great imbalance between your desire to have a healthy body that feels great, and daily self-defeating behaviors leading to ill health and feeling exhausted and out of shape.

Remember you become what you think about. Why think of yourself in any way that leads to less-than-perfect health? What’s the point in looking at your body in its current condition of disrepair and taking on a set of beliefs guaranteed to make matters worse?”
