I’d like to go over some ideas for preventing any disease and accepting wellness in my upcoming blog series. The first idea on the chart is literally life changing. It’s something I can guarantee you or I can promise you that if you incorporate it in your life, it truly does promote wellness. This necessity is meditation.
When you set your alarm clock 15 or 20 minutes earlier than normal, and you get up early, and you go sit in a space that you set aside for meditation, whether it’s on a pillow on the floor or in a chair, maybe you’d light a candle, but it’s a designated spot for you to connect with the Divine, the Source, God. And, the reason why meditation is so powerful is it solves and it fixes a lot of issues regarding wellness or dis-ease.
First of all, when you sit there in silence and you connect with the source, you begin to experience the peace of God, and with the peace of God, this is one thing I can promise you, dis-ease cannot exist, because the opposite of peace is not being at-ease and that is what your cells in your body respond negatively to, is that “not at ease.” When you begin each morning by being at ease, you’re reminded throughout the day to be at ease, and the more at ease you become, the more it promotes wellness.
So, I suggest that you set the clock 15, 20 minutes early, designate a spot for meditation. Either sit on the floor with a pillow or in a chair, but comfortably, and get quiet with yourself and connect with the source.
Another reason why meditation is so powerful is that many people who are dealing with a dis-ease, are dealing with identity issues, whether it’s the housewife who is now an empty-nester, the corporate executive who just got downsized or forced into retirement, in either case, they no longer know who they are, and when they no longer know who they are, they become not at ease. When someone becomes not at ease, it allows theunconscious mind to create a new identity, and they become the person with the issue.
So, my theory is, when you know who you truly are, and are truly connected to that source, dis-ease cannot exist. Identity is not an issue, because you know who you are. Also meditation, a form of prayer, my belief in prayer is that God’s job is done and God is all-knowing, so in prayer there is nothing tell God to do, you just listen.
So, what we’re doing in prayer is, we’re asking ourselves to see a situation differently. We’re asking to see the world through God’s eyes. It’s “God, let me see this differently.” Because my theory is based on the way God sees the world - it’s all in order. There is no chaos. It’s all in order, according to God’s plan. If you see everything all in order, dis-ease cannot exist. So, in meditation, often, if something is bothering us, something we’re concerned with, we’re just asking to view it differently. “Allow me to see it through God’s eyes.”
