Cleansing Your Heart to Cleanse Your Life
There’s been a surprising development in the field of cellular biology that suggests that our health and wellbeing are more closely connected to our cellular function than they are to our genes. Despite the popular view that our lives are largely determined by the genetic luck of the draw, the evidence is growing that, in reality, we are more the product of our environment than the random collection of genes in our DNA. Diet, exercise, lifestyle, our daily habits and behaviours all contribute far more to the quality of our lives than our genetic expression. And this also applies to the outcomes we experience.
What we think determines what happens to us so, if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds. – Wayne Dyer
This fascinating insight into the nature of reality reinforces the message that we are also deeply influenced by the quality of our thoughts and feelings. If the latest research is truly worthy of our attention, we should note that we also function as broadcasters and receivers of a vast amount of emotional energy. The physical distance between us as individuals is seemingly irrelevant. We’re all connected. It’s an astonishing thought and a concept that truly deserves all of our attention.
Our emotional energy, for example, produces measurable changes within our cells. And since each of the fifty trillion individual cells that make up our physical bodies is connected to all the others, a cellular malfunction in one area can trigger imbalances in other apparently unrelated areas.
All those angry, hostile and fearful thoughts and feelings we’re generating are affecting our health and wellbeing.
They’re also generating powerful signals that touch other lives.
The only intelligent response to this fascinating development in our understanding of the human organism is to undertake a thorough cleansing programme that frees our hearts from the old habits of fear and negativity.
It could easily be the most important step we ever take, both as individuals and as a species.
The greatest force is derived from the power of thought. The finer the element, the more powerful it is. The silent power of thought influences people even at a distance, because mind is one as well as many. The universe is a cobweb; minds are spiders. – Swami Vivekananda
We live in an age where the traditions of marshalling our thoughts and mastering our emotional energy have slipped out of our grasp. They appear to be alien, unobtainable concepts. Yet, for thousands of years, in civilisations that lacked our technological sophistication, these practices flourished. They were seen as the highest expression of human potential. Without the scientific means to measure cellular function, it was clearly understood that everything was connected and that our thoughts and feelings are the source of our health and wellbeing. Our emotional energy flowed into the world in a constant stream that could produce results for both the sender and the receiver – whether for good or for ill would depend entirely on the quality of the energy that was being generated. We possess the same capacity to generate vast amounts of emotional energy. We also possess the potential to master that energy and direct it purposefully for positive outcomes.
Reality is a projection of your thoughts or the things you habitually think about. – Stephen Richards
The starting point in this magnificent quest for a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life is to become more aware of what you’re feeling. This is especially important in terms of the negative thoughts that seem to arise spontaneously throughout the day. Each negative thought and feeling that you generate needs to be challenged. Take a moment to consider how absurd these responses are. And let them go.
As you learn to release each negative reaction, as you feel the power of this extraordinary sense of personal freedom, as you learn to choose more positive feelings to populate your heart and mind’s inner domains, you will feel a tectonic shift in your perception. Positive energy encourages you to generate more positive thoughts and feelings. It’s a fabulously virtuous circle that will touch every aspect of your being.
Whatever you hold in your mind on a consistent basis is exactly what you will experience in your life. – Tony Robbins
As you experience the seismic shift in the way you express your thoughts and feelings, you’ll notice changes in the way people relate to you. Your personal connections will reflect your more positive attitudes and behaviours. By adopting this most powerful way of living your life, your daily experience and the world around you will both share in the wonder and the improvements that you’re generating. Make it happen today and become a force for good in your life and in the world.
You have powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you never thought you could do. There are no limitations to what you can do except the limitations of your own mind. – Darwin P. Kingsley
