In a recent blog post, I used a metaphor of unlocking your specific code (the intertwining of your mind, body and spirit) that makes you, you.
These three components make up our essence. Each of us has a distinct way our mind operates which translates into actions, based on our thoughts and beliefs. Experiences we had growing up can also sculpt our belief system about our relationship to the world and others.
People don’t appreciate the power of the subconscious mind because we are not aware of its power. I see many patients who don’t like the situation they’re in but feel powerless to change it.
In my own experiences when changing some of my own health and fitness habits, I realized that the first step is to recognize my own thoughts about health and wellness. I did this by looking back into my past to where those thoughts started.
We have to look back in our past, at our parents, siblings and other close relatives who may have influenced our earliest thoughts. Perhaps they also had poor habits which “rubbed off” on us.
Perhaps we saw physicians as the ultimate authority and weren’t allowed to question them. Maybe our religious beliefs taught us that there were things we could or couldn’t do.
When you see a tapestry or painting up close, the various specific threads can be seen but you can’t see exactly where a thread weaves into another. The threads are so tightly woven that it is very difficult to “tease” it out.
But these thoughts and beliefs need to be “teased” out and examined for what they are.
You need to ask yourself, “Do these thoughts resonate with me anymore?”
If they don’t, and you struggle with how to find new ones, read on.
As I’ve written in previous posts, meditation is a time-tested way to “shut off” the outside
noise and reflect on your thoughts.
The next post will go through understanding the physical part of your code: Nutrition part 1.
