How Are You Nurturing or Nourishing Your Body?

Where is your focus on being healthy at this moment? For this day?

What if you begin to decide how you are going to nurture your body consciously?

Are that more spas, more exercise, or better eating?

What is it for you?

What you focus on expands.

Are you willing to consciously decide the direction of your life to nurture and nourish your body?

For instance, by deciding that you want better health, more joy, and lots of fun, you will have more of those things. As a result, your life will radiate this prosperity and abundance.

What parts of your life do you need to expand to nurture and nourish your body and live at the top of your game?

As you think about how you want to live a healthy life, what is that for you?

As you think about the food you eat, do you think about whether or not what you are putting in your mouth is nurturing or nourishing your body? Is the food you are eating a high-frequency food? Does it fulfill the needs of your body?

As you think about living healthy, do you realize that your thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors impact whether you are nurturing and nourishing your body? If you continue thinking and engaging in these same behaviors, where will your life be in 6 months, 1 year or 5 years?

As you think about the activities in your life, are they nurturing and nourishing your body? As Marie Kondo says, “If it sparks joy, keep it. If not, dispose of it.”

As I began opening up to this consciousness of eating more nutritional and nourishing foods, I realized how stuck and unconscious I was. I was choosing from habits and things I liked, not whether they were good for me and my body. It’s been a revealing process. I mainly realized everything I was choosing was processed. It is taking a lot of attention and forethought to break this habit of mine.

It’s even made me aware of my patterns with our grandkids. I love baking and having snacks for them. Most of them are not so healthy. Comfort and sweet things. For sure, for them, I need to change my focus.

You can only fix a problem once you become aware of it. So awareness is the first step to changing anything.

I have always loved Science of Mind’s “Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life” because it reminds me I can do something about my situations.

You have to know better to do better.

Think of the energies in which you are eating or moving your body. Is it to honor and value your body more or from judgment and punishment?

Are you eating or doing this to love yourself fully?
Are you eating to avoid something?

Remember, as you move along this journey to awakening to a better relationship with your body, please use LOTS of compassion. Think of gentleness and kindness as you begin exploring this new perspective.

Often, you tend to be mean and judgmental to yourself – “How could I have done that?” But, remember, you used the tools and ability you had. You aren’t in the same space and mindset as you were then. With today’s understanding, you can make better choices.

Think about one task or idea you can implement that will change the course of your relationship with your body to be more nurturing and nourishing.

For one day, make an intention you will focus on nurturing and nourishing your body. Notice and become aware of your patterns and habits.

Will choosing this take you to a higher frequency and feeling? Or will you regret what you’ve chosen and feel shame and guilt?

What is the compass YOU WILL USE EACH DAY?

Stop blaming others or outside circumstances for your situation.

Assume responsibility for how you want this relationship with your body to go.

Think and ask, “How can this be easy?”

Keep a journal and track your choices and what you think as you make the
choices you do. The healthy and not so. For instance, do you have foods labeled as good and bad? Do you beat yourself up if you eat the “bad” ones? One of my mentors said it’s not as much the food you eat, but the poison is in the amount you eat. For instance, Science Daily wrote that sugar consumption increased 30% in the past decades.

How could watching your quantities help nurture and nourish your body?

Where do you need to begin to nurture and nourish your body?

Are You Ready to Change Your Attitude?

Look at your Attitude about your health – “For as he thinketh in his hearts, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7

Your physical body is your reflection of your thoughts.  The lighter your thoughts are the lighter you will be.

I realized my take on health was my “weight” and body image, not on being healthy.

  • I never took time to appreciate my good health.  I focused on not being perfect, or my description of that “right” weight.  I fixated on the few extra pounds, then the 10 pounds, then 20.  
  • I didn’t pay attention to what my body was telling me.  I ignored it, trying to force my weight off, obsessing how bad I looked. I felt like a victim that I couldn’t lose weight.
  • I was beating myself up over not being a certain weight even though I exercise regularly and faithfully.

My body has been a trooper with all I have put her through. Lots of forgiveness was needed on my part in the way I have treated her.  

Dr. Masaru Emoto’s water research shows the effect of positive and negative thoughts have on your cells and organs.  

  • Is your glass half full or half empty?  
  • Do you expect the best or doom and gloom?  


Feel the difference, feel your body, notice your breathing, your facial gestures, shoulders.  Notice the openness, the flow when you believe life is good and then feel the tension when your body contracts, cutting off oxygen reducing your health when you are negative.

I haven’t had a loving relationship with my body. It has been one of which I have felt great shame, guilt and disgust with myself.  I totally understand that constriction, uptight, I see now how unhealthy that has been.  

My new attitude is to be healthy, not just a certain weight.   As Danielle LaPorte shares, “What are your non-negotiable needs?”  


  • Focus on well-being, not a perfect body.  
  • Decide to be healthy. Commit to live that healthy life defined by what you know is right for you and your beloved animal (as Jena LaFlamme calls your body in Pleasurable Weight Loss).
  • Eat as if you love your body. Food influences your health, how you feel and how you perform during the day.  Ayurveda teaches that every person has a unique blueprint by nature, known as your body type.  Your body knows what is good or bad for it, if you listen.  


    • Pay attention to the feedback from your body.  You cannot give bad feelings about sickness and receive health.  Pain is a way to get your attention. Take care of any illness on the mind, body and emotional levels. If you only address the physical symptom (the effect) rather than the cause, like the emotional and mental anguish going on, the pain gets worse. When you address the underlying causes, your body has a remarkable capacity to begin healing.


  • Restore balance in your body – diet, exercise, daily routines, & seasonal routines.  


  • Begin to love yourself right where you are.  As Abraham-Hicks shares the recipe for Deliberate Creation – 5 parts appreciating what is, 2 parts imagining a little better than what is, 2 parts looking for things that would make you feel better and 1 part quieting your mind, relaxing and not trying so hard, being at ease at it.  
  • Be grateful for your body instead of finding fault with it.  Say thanks for all it does for you.  

What is being healthy for YOU?

Unlimited health is yours if you want it when you align your mind, body and spirit.  

Doing what is right for your health can take some time to remove old habits and ways.  Louise Hays gives the example of cleaning out the turkey pan, at first there is a lot of gunk to remove from the pain but the more you clean out, there is little to remove and not so stuck.

How can you develop a relationship with your health and body that is full of compassion, kindness, passion, fun, trust, love and attention?
