Light Workers Are You Listening to Your Body?

Image from:
              I often get asked questions about my diet and exercise routine from friends and colleagues who are seeking to make improvements in their lives. I do really appreciate that people respect me for my knowledge as most know I am quite committed to my diet and workout programs. I always begin with saying that although I have a lot of personal experience

"I do advice you to learn to get to know your own body"

You need to pay attention to what your bodies needs are. As each of us are individuals and no two bodies are completely alike. Furthermore, my diet and exercise  programs are constantly changing according to my lifestyle and my needs. And so should yours.

     I want to start this post by emphasizing that your body is always communicating to you. it's letting you know what its needs are and it physically responds to how you treat it. That includes your diet, exercise program as well as your thoughts and feelings. Taking the time to listen and to pay attention to what its saying to you takes a bit of practice. Before I plan what I am going to eat I:

  •  Ask my body what it needs 
  •  Listen to my body's response
  •  Allow my internal GPS system to guide me to the right foods

I use this technique in the gym as well. I am then guided to what exercises I should do and also which ones I should avoid.

Pain means "Pay Attention Inward Now!"

It's a negative physiological response that has manifested because you've ignored a negative emotional feeling that you have carried for too long. It's been buried, suppressed and ignored. I can't tell you how many times when I was a practising physiotherapist I heard the words "I thought the pain would go away but it didn't" And now they were sitting in front of me months latter having suffered through the symptoms till they could not stand it anymore. The source of all pain begins from some place where there is a lack of emotional well being. Healthy thoughts means a healthy body.
When there is pain your body is telling you to think healthier thoughts. There is a direct emotional physical feedback mechanism. Much the same way your body is constantly giving you feedback about your environment, what you eat and the types of exercise that's good for you. It's when you ignore your body you fall into trouble.

But the benefits of being in tune, listening to your body and taking appropriate action include:

  • Feeling Grounded
  • More energy
  • Greater sense of well being
  • A More positive outlook 
  • Lowered stress

And more importantly it optimizes the function of your physical vessel when you are offering yourself to be of service!

      Vibrationally light workers are now evolving at a faster rate and to higher frequencies. Consequently our sensitives to our environment, what we expose ourselves to, the things we eat and how we treat our bodies is changing. My diet and exercise routine has been modified accordingly to my vibrations. As such I have to pay more attention to my exterior and internal environments. I no longer watch the news or read the newspaper. I don't feel good when I see or hear topics that are drama or fear based. It makes me feel ill. And when I am at a lower vibration a healthy meal and workout shifts me to a higher one.

      My body does not like any refined sugar, processed foods and synthetic ingredients. If it's not real I don't want to eat it.  In fact if I do I immediately feel bloated, ill and fatigued. Contrary I get excited for kale, all things green leafy and or raw vegetables.

     Each one of us is on an individual soul path and journey. Therefore what we eat has to be customized to our own needs. "What are some of the changes you have noticed in your own body recently?" "What changes have you made because of it?" I'll say it again "Pay attention!"

      I also recommend that you do not get into regular eating patterns or 'diets' where you eat the same thing every day! The body likes variety. In fact it begins to adapt very quickly and you will start to lose the benefits of what you are eating.  Eating the same foods daily can lead to food sensitivities. If you're changing your diet regularly because your needs are changing then you won't have this problem. I want to point this out as often when I hear people describe their daily food intake it's much of the same thing every day.

      That said you're exercise routine should also change frequently. I change mine every week. I rarely do the same thing each time I am in the gym.

I look and see how I can change a particular exercise whether it's the sets, reps or the technique. This prevents adaptation and burn out.  Furthermore it keeps you regular and committed to your workout by avoiding boredom. Change your routine by checking in to what your body needs. If that means taking a day off then by all means do so. A rest day is still honouring your body. It means you are paying attention.

      Today's Light workers have their work cut out for them.  Many of them are so busy focusing on their  life's mission and taking care of others that they often neglect their own needs. With increasing sensitives and life evolving so quickly its even more important to make your health a priority. Begin by getting in tune with your body. Treat it with kindness.  Recognize that you are evolving and your diet and exercise program should reflect this. And finally be flexible and be wiling to make any  changes accordingly.

Messages from the Angels: Dear loved ones there is always light at the end of the tunnel. This is the time to explore what lies hidden in the darkness of your shadows. It's time to face your deepest and darkest fears and know that they cannot defeat you. Let them be lessons from which your soul can grow and allowing you to be a better person. By focusing on the light you will literally give 'light' to all your fears and be free to experience this life through joy, happiness and knowing that you are always divinely protected and guided. Turn your fears over to the Divine your true source of strength, wisdom and confidence. Allow yourself to be driven by your higher self never looking back on what brought you down but knowing that when you fell we came to help pick you back up on your feet again. We love you dearly. All is well always. Angel Blessings to ALL

My Father

Dad's 83rd Birthday
August 25th, 2014
       The illness of a family member can really take it's toll especially when it becomes chronic. You're life and priority can certainly take a huge shift and it requires restructuring virtually everything. My dad's been in the hospital for over two months. This time, and when I say this time it's because we have been in and out of hospitals for various reasons over the last ten years, but this time the diagnosis is dementia. Watching his health deteriorate over the years has not been easy. My father was quite vital most of his younger years. But after his cardiac issues began it really affected his physicality. And since then he has survived some of the toughest illness issues including multiple myeloma. A supposed incurable cancer but for which he is and has been in remission for quite some time. He has proven throughout his lifetime that he can handle just about anything that comes his way.
        Despite the long list of illnesses my father has met in his life he has maintained a strong sense of resiliency. Perhaps it's stubbornness or a strong will to live. I'm not sure. Only his soul is the all knowing of his journey. Most doctors thought he wouldn't have made it up to this point in his life. But I have to wonder at what cost? His quality of life was taken away with each disease including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, cancer, minimal functioning kidneys and now dementia. His mobility and function declined as much of this has taken a huge toll on his physical body. The man who once boasted about being able to do the splits and break boards in his Tae Kwon Do practise resides in bed requiring the assistance of two people to transfer him from his bed to a chair. He's lost much of his physical independence and now his cognitive abilities too.

      This period has been most challenging for my mother. I honestly think that she is the strongest woman I have every met. She never complains about her own fatigue or pain. She is at the hospital by my father's side every day and has not missed a day. She prays, cooks, and supports his every need and at the sacrifice of every need of her own. She suffered a fall and hit her head during one of her visits at the hospital but was back there the next day without complaints. I have never seen anyone more dedicated and committed to someone like my mother. She is extraordinarily strong.
        They say that when there is a storm you should look for a rainbow. And we have been blessed as a family with so much support from friends, family, and acquaintances. We have been blessed with many rainbows. Prayers, have been pouring in for us. The phone calls come in daily for updates. All with messages of support. When you are in need of help it's like God sends you little angels from the most unexpected places and we are truly grateful for it all. We certainly don't feel alone as a family and are full of gratitude for all the help we are getting.

Mom and Dad at my nephew's wedding
June13, 2014.
       My greatest challenge has been trying to stay connected to the feeling of joy. Our future has many question marks. Staying focused on being present is hard. I think about our future. What it will be like for mom should anything happen to dad. I realize that there others who are also going through the same thing and many have as well. I know we will get through as everyone I know has too. That gives me a sense of comfort. But at the best of times I do feel like I have to make a more conscious effort to feel joy. Every moment of our lives is so precious and when we aren't feeling joy we are suffering it seems. I allow every text message of support or email to fill me up and lift my spirit. I let it carry me and hold me even if it means for a short time.
      The lesson I have learned is  the understanding that our calling in life isn't always going to be what we think it should be. We could set out in the world to achieve great things. But certain life events can route us to where we need to be. And at some point we have to look around and evaluate where we are and finally be at peace knowing there is no where else we need to be. Life has a funny way of working things out. It may seem like we've been thrown into the wind or turbulent seas. But like a GPS it's guiding us to a destiny that will ultimately lead to the growth of our soul.

        Each day, each moment and each breath is all we have. As I write this I look around me and I see that I am safe. I am in my home. I have food. I have clothes and as I look across the table where I'm writing I see my mom sitting on the couch after a long day at the hospital eating pistachios. It may all seem simple but it does put a bit of a smile on my face. In the midst of it all gratitude pulls me through from this moment to the next.

Angel Blessings to ALL.

Messages from the Angels: Guidance for Healthy Relationships

Messages from the Angels: Dear loved ones. Many of you are seeking support at this time to improve your relationships. You seek healthier relationships. We ask that you take a moment of reflection and see each person in your life as an opportunity to present you with lessons to help your souls journey. Teachers come in all shapes and forms. Some come with pain, some with love and some with both. Ultimately to change any situations requires personal care and attention in your own 'Self.' To feel greater love you must love yourself more. To feel respect you must respect yourself more. To feel desirable and worthy you must claim your self worth. The frequency that you emit will determine the health of your relationships. This frequency is like a wave of energy with unlimited potential. When you are in blame you are in fear. Fear doesn't change you or your situation. It only creates more fear. Chose to let go of fear now. Seek to find love for yourself as by doing so you are also falling in love with the divine within and absolutely the divine, that is your Source. Allow yourself to receive love, support and abundance knowing that you as a child of God are deserving and worthy now and always. Angel Blessings to ALL
