In the true nature of my style—cutting to the chase and being transparent I ask you to answer the above question. Hygiene is important is it not? What happens if you choose not to change your undergarments or not brush your teeth for days? It wouldn’t take long before a smell evolves repelling humans, attracting bugs and disease. We give strong advice to our children about the necessity of good hygiene and reprimand them for not. Yet we think nothing about wearing the same murky energy for months, days and some even years.
Here is the official meaning of energy from the Free Online Dictionary:
|· 1. the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity: “changes in the levels of vitamins can affect energy and well-being” synonyms: vitality, vigor, life, liveliness, animation
· ▪a person’s physical and mental powers, typically as applied to a specific task or activity.
|· 2. power derived from the utilization of physical or chemical resources, especially to provide light and heat or to work machines.|
|· 3. the property of matter and radiation that is manifest as a capacity to perform work (such as causing motion or the interaction of molecules): “a collision in which no energy is transferred”
· ▪a degree or level of energy possessed by something or required by a process.
As we look at this definition pertaining to our lives, we can easily understand how important it is to have a good deal of energy; vitality; and mental duress to attain dreams, achieve goals and the purpose that is set for our lives. But, do we truly realize how important energy is in co-creating our world? Do we understand everything is energy: our trees, our water, our world?
What we perceive as our physical material world, is not physical or material at all. This has been proven by scientist and multiple Nobel-Prize winning physicists. “Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature. Therefore, if we really want to observe ourselves and find out what we are, we are really beings of energy and vibration, radiating our own unique energy signature -this is fact and is what quantum physics has shown us time and time again.” –Arjan Walia – September 27, 2014
So how then might we make changes to our personal vibrational energy making us strong, positive, and influential change agents attracting and co-creating the world intended for us?
Choosing Your Physical Activity
While there was a time in my life when I exercised five times a week in a gym with a trainer; and almost wanted to die if I didn’t achieve such, that is not my regimen today. Today, I am just a bit more senior and wiser. I say that in humor. But, I still exercise. My exercise now consists of walking anywhere from one and one-half to two miles, three to four times a week, and meditating daily.
I find that meditating heightens my perspective while keeping the relentless noise, distractions, of the day to a minimum. It increases my energy, helps me maintain stamina, and keeps me focused in the here and now. During the day, if I find myself out of sync, I stop; meditate; and breathe taking very deep breaths, exhaling slowly. This brings my world back into perspective allowing me to flow experiencing synchronicity.
This form of exercise does not have to be of your choosing, but I believe keeping true to some form is necessary to help you garner the energy necessary to manifest your desires.
Yes! It’s far easier to be a couch potato! But, taking your God-given talents to the graveyard should not be your choice and is certainly not your purpose. Keep in mind, however, the graveyards are packed with unfulfilled purpose six-feet down.
Changing Eating Habits
It is not enough to eat on Monday and not eat again until Thursday, obviously. But what’s not often obvious is eating junk food most of the week, having one good meal on Sunday, will not give you sufficient energy to function at your maximum capacity either. And, though you may be eating regularly, stop and ask yourself is your food healthy? That is, is it free from ingredients you can’t pronounce, GMO’s and other contaminants. Or, is it flat-out junk food?
GMO’s or Genetically Modified Organisms are any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. GMO advocates and some globalist argue GMO’s are necessary to provide enough food for the masses. Others contend not all genetically modified foods should be avoided. They state cross-breeding allows farmers to come up with tastier organisms that are hardier.
I have also read, “the genetic engineering of plants has the potential to provide edible plant vaccines that could be used to immunize individuals against a wide variety of infectious diseases ranging from cholera to potentially AIDS.” 
I am not here to dispute the matter, today. I will say, however, I believe God has given more than enough for everyone in the form that is perfect. What is necessary is education and wide-spread, clean resources at reasonable cost to consumers, globally.
Junk food is now available across the world thanks to Globalization. These foods: chips, candy bars, and sodas are foods that contribute lots of calories but have no nutritional value. They are low in satiation value so even after eating mass quantities you can still feel hungry hence devouring more junk as pointed out to us by Elaine Magee, MPH, RD in WebMed . Junk food often raises blood sugar giving you a quick pick-me-up or high but offers no sustainability, no fuel for endurance, and little capacity to fight off sickness and disease.
Having a delicious protein drink in the morning, which literally takes minutes to prepare, can help jump start your day determining whether you will have a ho-hum, low energy, I-can barely-make it day; or a spectacular be-all-you-can-be day. A protein drink made of:
- 1 cup antioxidant mixed organic berries
- 1 Tbsp sugar-free almond butter
- 1 Tbsp chia
- 1 Tbsp sugar-free cocoa powder,
- 1 Tbsp organic hemp powder
- ¼ tsp ground turmeric (Freshly ground is perfect but can be found in a jar. Buy organic.)
- 2-3 handfuls organic super greens thoroughly washed and blended
adds vitality and gives you enduring power. If you live in a state where Cannabis is legal for medicinal purposes, you can throw a few leaves of this miraculous plant into your morning drink and experience all the energy benefits without the psychoactive side-effect. (Research for yourself, please.)
Instead of a bag of potato chips, in the middle of the day, enjoy a piece of your favorite fruit with summer bringing a colorful and tasteful array. Or, to satisfy your late-night munching, try a teaspoon of sugar-free almond or peanut butter on celery or an apple sliced. Even a bowl of GMO-less, organic white corn popped in coconut oil, sprinkled with Himalayan salt is a healthier choice. Coconut oil can help you burn fat, reduces hunger and kills harmful microorganisms. 
Deciding to make lunch versus running out for fast, processed food saves time and money. The average fast-food meal now costs nearly $7.00 to $10. Let’s do the math. That’s $35 to $50 a week for 50 weeks (that’s taking a couple of weeks off for vacations and holidays) = $1,750 to $2,500 per year. It’s money that can be used toward savings for an adult toy, paying down a college loan, or taking a vacation. And, you’ll be looking good in your bathing suit which is a bonus.
We lecture our children on changing their underwear and brushing their teeth; but how many are lecturing their children on the importance of eating healthy to build strong and healthy bodies and minds.
Speaking of Minds.
Changing Your Mind to Change Your Malodourous World
Malodorous sounds a lot better than stinky; however, it means the same. Notice in the above subtitle I didn’t say changing your mind to change our world. This is not a typo. I believe each of us are co-creators of our individual, energetic world. As much as we like to point fingers, our personal lives are of our own making and are our own responsibility.
I have been around a few decades and I’ve come to believe we humans enjoy drama—drama being defined as chaos, confusion and conflict. Whether that’s individual drama or collective drama. In fact, I believe there are those who if they didn’t have their drama, couldn’t exist. That right! Their lives depend upon it..
I wish I could say I can’t recall a time as dramatic, as dark and as negative as the one we are in now. I could, but it wouldn’t be the truth. We can go back in history, to the days of Jesus, and find the times were just as dark. Don’t kid yourself into thinking since God became incarnate in the form of Jesus “Yeshua” and lived in the earth, (Christians’ belief) the world was a better and brighter place.
We are told in the collective Scriptures, He claimed to have come not to judge the world, but to save the world. Well, the world would not have needed saving if everything was copasetic. And while Yeshua came bringing his new-thought message to enlighten those who would listen; it was not a popular message amongst the religious legalist resulting in Yeshua being challenged and killed for the paradigm introduced.
What about the Dark Ages? After the collapse of the Roman Empire, Europe faced a drastic political, economic and social set back. The “Dark Ages” was a tumultuous period in the 10th and 11th centuries. Roving horse-bound invaders charged the country sides. Religious conflicts abounded. Scarcity of sound literature and cultural achievements marked these years and barbarous practices prevailed. 
We can review our twentieth-century history starting with Adolf Hitler and the rise of Nazism in Germany in 1919. Moving forward, though I was a young girl at the time, I will never forget the images on my family’s black and white television. Images of college kids being beaten and mowed down on college campuses, hoses and dogs being turned on Black-American citizens, and protestors burning the American flag. And, what I have mentioned is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to human drama throughout time, in all the world.
And in our personal lives? Tumultuous relationships, jealousy, envy, fierce rivalry unforgiveness and so on and so on.
We need war, upheaval and conflict. And, while I can give my belief as to why we need such, politically and economically, that discussion is for another blog, as well. My point for this piece is the only way the world will see positive change is by each of us starting with, as the deceased Michael Jackson would say, “The Man in the Mirror.”
What the world is suffering from is the culmination of our sordid collective thoughts—all our subconsciousness thoughts of fear, lack and abandonment manifesting into a warped reality.
I’ve heard so many people say the current President of the United States is not their president, (these are those who see President Trump as a negative reality). But, I will argue they are just as responsible as those who voted for him. They may not have punched the chad next to his name, but the collective energy on both sides of the aisle dictated the result.
I know that is a hard pill to swallow; especially if you believe those things that be are not your choosing or your responsibility. But, I ask:
|1) What feelings did the above statement bring up?|
|2) Did you become angry? Resentful or Resistant?|
|3) Did you gloat and/or begin to think negatively about the author of this piece?|
|4) Or, did reading cause you to stop and think, “How did I play a role?” (Regardless of your party, how you voted, or not?)|
|5) And, “How might we come to peace with our differences?”|
I ask, have you checked your judgments and observations lately?
Never mind the mood of the country or the world? What is your mood? And here are the big-thought questions. What is your personal reality? What have you, personally, been conjuring up in the basement of your mind— in the ole subconscious where the monsters dwell? Disaster, disease, and possibly destruction?
We rise early in the morning, hustle into the bathroom to brush our teeth, shower, comb and style our hair. Yet, far too many still believe there is no importance in taking a bit of that early-morning time to address the heart, the mind and the soul. And, for those who do take time, far too many of us still believe we need do all the talking leaving no opportunity for the intuitive voice. While our prayers might sound good to ourselves and others, the epitome of prayer is silence—the optimal connection with Spirit.
I believe if, or I should say when, a critical mass of people believe it is just as important to tend to their energy daily as it is to caring for their personal hygiene, the result will create what I can only describe as a glory-filed earth—the Kingdom of God manifested right here.
It will not be evidenced as some one-world order; but will be expressed as an individualized Christ consciousness—Christhood. Each one first taking responsibility for their own karma, own path, and own life inevitably leading to a life that is healthy, vibrant, and imbued in abundance. In turn, creating a collective manifestation of freedom, justice, and prosperity, for all.
