DAILY TRANSFORMATIONAL NUGGETS FOR THE BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT: Surrendering – Day 20 “True Strength Training, True Healing”
The Body Connection: The purpose of resistance training is to strengthen your muscles, joints, and skeletal system by placing stress on the body. With the use of weights; bands and or your own body weight, this physical practice breaks down the body so that during rest time, it gets stronger. Resistance training is important to combat obesity, fatigue, osteoporosis and any physical disease that we might experience. Like spiritual work, strength training sometimes is neglected because of lack of knowledge. You don’t need a gym, just your willingness to get strong. The simple act of standing and sitting in a chair or walking steps will make all the difference. Here are a few easy ways to strengthen you temple. Try standing and sitting in a chair 20 times, 3 time a day. Guess what? You are doing squats. Take the step instead of the elevator; you are build strong legs. Try 2 or 3 standing push-ups. Face the wall with yours hand on the wall, bend and straiten your elbow to complete a push up or what I call a push away. Feel the power that lives in you. Just 10 sit-ups, 3 times a day will activate healing in the body. That old set of dumbbells in the closet or the garage is calling your name. You can always take baby steps. Once you begin your practice you will feel better; you will see yourself in a new light, and that is true healing. This physical activity also allows us to connect with our inner strength. Today, I invite you to start your strength training.
Meditative Thought: When we think of healing, most of us think of the physical, but true healing is always about the spirit. What block our revelation of inner strength are old paradigms that there is something wrong. The truth is every practice, mental, physical, and spiritual are design for us to know our own divinity. But surrendering to a divine idea comes at a price. We must let go of everything and everyone that no longer serves the purpose of our growth.
Today’s Action Plan: Today, allow true healing to be your vision. Begin a resistance-training program with the intention to connect with your inner strength. Before or after your meditation, do a push up, sit up and or squat. Connect your physical strength with your spiritual strength.
Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, every step I take is infused with the power of God. I allow my highest potential to come forth as I live my greatest life yet to be seen. Amen
