Last week I had the great opportunity to spend time with Tiger Singelton, www.inlightconnect.com, discussing health, well-being and the essence of these topics.
Our discussion reminded me about that health is a very personal thing and that if we want to succeed quicker with our health goals and enjoy the journey, we must not compare our health with somebody else’s.
Each person has their own set of inherited physical aspects, challenges and gifts. Each one of us has a unique health story. Each one of us have an individual set of beliefs about our selves, our body and health. Everyone has different intentions, goals and interests. And that is perfectly so.
All this will influence how you see your health and what you mean when you say that you want to be healthy. I think it is good to value this uniqueness and avoid comparing your health with somebody else´s. Instead ask yourself what is health for me?
The moment I compare my body, my health, my progress and efforts in creating a healthier life with others, I will feel less than them and this create a negative and downgrading energy directed towards myself.
This will not feel good and I will be putting myself in a position where I think there is something wrong with me, and that I only deserve to be recognized, loved and seen if I can live up to an image that I have created for myself in my mind.
This feels awful because withholding love hurts. The good thing is that the pain is just a pointer that shows me that I slipped off track and got lost in the minds beliefs about who I am and who I´m not.
When I withhold love it hurts to point me into another direction. It is an invitation not a punishment. An invitation to walk away from those beliefs and thoughts that makes me feel less than, miserable and bad....those beliefs are not reflecting who I really am and they are not telling the truth....The pointer is a possibility to lovingly accept the feedback given and give thanks for the new opportunity to choose again...
Now I can consciously choose beliefs, thoughts and actions that are more in line with who I am (and who you are too); a beautiful divine human being. No matter what size, color, weight, gender and handicap. If you look deep enough you will see this too.
If you are comparing your health and body with somebody else, feeling not enough, miserable, and being judgmental about yourself or somebody else, which is ultimately the same thing, you will not experience true health. No matter how many greens or raw juices you eat and drink....That kind of behavior is counter productive to health.
Instead, I suggest that you, with kindness and gentleness move into health by reconnecting with your sincerity and truth of the moment, which lies within the kindness of your own heart.
