"Beloved, I wish above all things that you would prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. III John 2:1"
As the wisdom from the Bible verse above shows, our wealth and our health prospers in accordance to the prosperity of our soul (our mind, will and emotions.) There exists a vivid circle of inter-connection. The essence of our health encompasses it all. One weak link can pull the others down. One link becoming stronger can strengthen the others.
Where does the circle begin and where does it end?
I suppose it could begin anywhere and I would venture to say it never ends. The strength of the circle is greatly influenced by the direction our underlying thought process is going. The scripture says: God wishes that you would prosper and be in health EVEN AS your soul prospers.
Our mental emotional health so clearly demonstrates the circle. The allowance of one negative thought stream begins to greatly damage the other areas of our health and our life. Negative thoughts create negative words, which very soon become negative actions. These negative thoughts, words and actions steal our most precious resource……our energy. These actions once practiced consistently become habits forming our character and paving the pathway to our life circumstances.
"Summing it up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds
and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious – the best not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what your learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies." Phil 4:8 THE MESSAGE
The better side of this coin is: as we begin to command our thoughts to line up and march in the direction of our dreams, (and we can…….believe it or not…..we can!) these thoughts must obey. Each thought then becomes a step forward in life. As these thoughts become true, noble and gracious, our life reflects the brightness of these thoughts. As our thoughts become brighter, our tissue cells become stronger. As our cells become stronger, they begin multiplying into more and more stronger and healthier cells. As these cells become healthier, our body feels better. When our body feels better, happiness thoughts burst forth. Happiness thoughts drive out worry and fear. Happiness thoughts create energy….that most treasured resource in life. Happiness thoughts are the birthing place of dreams.
Without proper energy, even the most time in the world will be of little use. Our energy resources also form a circle. These resources include our physical energy, our mental and emotional energy, and spiritual energy. A weakness in one weakens the others. A strengthening of one can strengthen the others. Here the circle begins with our physical energy. Without the proper nutrients, pure water and exercise, our physical energy will be too low to allow our mental, emotional and spiritual energy to be what it could or should be.
Our muscles as well form the circle. A weak muscle weakens the others. This is especially seen when excess weight accumulates in the mid sections weakening the abdominal muscles, placing strain on the muscles around the back, and resulting in a weakened back and back pain.
Finances are definitely a part of the circle. A lack in this area can bring stress to the other areas. And more than this, God designed our finances to flourish when we are able to begin the circle of giving and receiving. The more we give out, the more we receive back.
The Circle continues. As you decide to go forward on your health journey with the foundational habits of pure water, whole food, whole food supplements and exercise, not only do your cells become healthier, your weight becomes balanced. Any excess weight begins to disappear. Because you feel better, it is easier to exercise. Because you exercise, you feel happy. (Do you see the mental, emotional connection here?) Because you feel happy you take another step forward. Life is becoming a joy. You are looking forward to every single day.
In summary, the circle of health is seen in every direction from our thoughts to our finances. Here are a few steps to begin strengthening your Fabulous Circle of Health:
- Since the strength of the circle is greatly influenced by the direction our underlying thought process is going, determine which direction your thoughts are going.
- Take a quiet five minutes and begin to write like the wind every single thought that crosses your mind, editing nothing.
- Come back and read your thoughts on paper and ask yourself: "which direction are my thoughts headed?" If they are headed toward your life dreams and goals, call that positive. If they are headed away from what you really want in life, call that negative and begin right now to change direction. Do this consistently for one week and see what you learn.
Once you know the direction of your thoughts, you can take action to capture those thoughts you don't want by intentionally changing channels. You can also begin to cherish those thoughts taking you in the right direction by nourishing and thinking on them.
The circle is now turning into an upward spiral. There is now a spring in your journey. The joy of the journey begins to magnetically pull you to your next level. You want to learn more. You want to become all God has created you to become, to do all He has called you to do, and to bless all he brings across your path. Life is good.
