The glorious Holiday Season is upon us again. I can truly say I am looking forward to this season with joyous anticipation I did not experience in many seasons past. A change of perception (a new way of seeing things) brings joy and lightness to my life. Speaking of lightness…
This season holds a lot of Light AND fear. For some, one of those fears is the fear of food; the fear of gaining weight; the fear the food may cause harm to the body. Fear turns food into the enemy and robs us of the joy of our holiday feast.
Food is one of the greatest blessings of this earthly experience and we are meant to enjoy it. We are meant to love ourselves with it.
So how can we bring back the joy of food into our lives and maintain healthy, happy bodies?
Concentrate on balance (not deprivation). And, release all judgement.
All of nature thrives when in balance. Our body is a miracle of Nature. How can we enjoy everything we love this season and maintain balance? It is really quite simple:
Plan ahead. The day before and the day of your holiday party nourish your body with body balancing foods. Most vegetables and fruits are alkalizing and have the ability to neutralize excess acid. To maintain a healthy body and blood pH we must eat more alkaline foods than acidic. We have the ability to literally have our cake and eat it too when we understand how to balance.
Start your holiday feast with a salad and then eat some of all the foods you REALLY LOVE and leave the rest. If you are eating “mindfully” you will know when you have had enough.
Speaking of being mindful. Be present with the food. Taste it – Savor it!
In this way we are respecting and honoring the food and every creation that helped to bring it to our plate. This honor, respect AND the sheer pleasure we receive from the food raises the food’s vibration (the life force energy – more on this below).
And, there is this. When we are not mindful, we tend to over consume. Try disconnecting from anything that distracts you from your experience with the food, like; watching TV or reading. This simple practice alone is a powerful weight loss tool.
Of course, in the company of others, it is impossible to completely disconnect and we wouldn’t want to. Communion with others feeds our soul. However, you can still take a few seconds to enjoy each bite!
Most important! Allow the food to bless you – no matter what it is.
Judgment is the lowest vibration on earth and Love is the highest. Keeping this in mind; what do you think happens when we judge our food and its effect on the body?
We compromise the body’s ability to glean from the food all the life-sustaining nutrients it contains that could be blessing our bodies. We lower the vibration of the food and our body’s ability to use it. The food becomes exactly what we fear – the enemy.
Gratitude, love and appreciation are expansive energies and increase the Good in ALL things. (If you have attended one of my workshops you have seen how dowsing rods can measure the energetic effect of blessing the food).
I have a challenge for you this Holiday Season. Let the judgment of food and your body go. Bless everything on your plate, NO MATTER WHAT and relish in the abundance of good food and company.
One client took this challenge to heart during a vacation cruise and actually lost weight. Who loses weight on vacation; especially on a cruise ship?!?
Your gratitude and love brings the food into harmony with the body (makes it compatible). There is a very Good reason we have been blessing and honoring food since the dawn of man in some form or another. Can you imagine what would happen if we blessed ALL events for the Highest Good of all concerned rather than judging them?
This Holiday season, may we look for and find the Good in all things. Bless every event, including glorious food and the miracle of it to bless our bodies with vibrant health. Enjoy all the abundance of the season in peace, joy and gratitude.
Here is my blessing. Feel free to use it, share or create your own:
Thank you Sweet Spirit for all of this abundance! Thank you every creation that took part in this one. Thank for the blessing of perfect nourishment this food now provides these bodies. Thank you for these bodies that know exactly what to do with this abundance. And, thank you for the sheer pleasure of this experience! In immense Appreciation, Love and Gratitude – Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! SO BE IT – And, SO IT IS!!!
If you would like to know more about how you can live in harmony with your body as our Creator and Nature intended, call me. It is not too late to create perfect balance in your body before the holidays or master the simple tools to maintain it. We came to this planet with the perfect body for our journey and this perfection comes in all shapes in sizes. Optimum weight for “your” body is a natural result of a body and mind in harmony.
A Balanced Body Is A Healthy Body!
Having a food chart to assist me on my journey to optimal health and wellness, has made all the difference. While my focus was never on losing weight, it was a natural and effortless result of having and using my personal food chart. I look and feel better than I have in 20 years, and my energy, vitality and well-being are off the charts. I am so grateful for Gail and her gifts and the difference she is committed to making in the world. A forever grateful client! Jen Smith/Waxahachie, TX
Lastly, I wrote all the above last night and woke up today to this prayer by Miguel Ruiz. I love Divine Synergy and Confirmation.
“Today Creator, I promise to make a new agreement with my physical body. I promise to love my body unconditionally as my body loves me. I promise to protect and take care of my body. I will never again reject my body, abuse my body, or be ashamed of how it looks. From now on, I will accept my physical body as it is. I will enjoy my body, and be grateful for all the pleasures of life it gives me.
Forgive me, Creator, for believing all the lies about my physical body. Forgive me for judging my physical body against a false image of perfection. Forgive me for everything I haven’t liked about my physical body.
Today, Creator, help me to see my physical body as a living temple where you live. Help me respect my body, to love and honor my body. I know that to treat my physical body with respect, love and honor is to respect, love and honor your creation. Help me, Creator, to give my physical body whatever it needs to live in perfect health, harmony, and happiness with you. Amen
Wishing you all Immense Joy, Peace & LOVE this Holiday Season and Always!
