“If we had a rampant epidemic of self-love then our health care costs would go down dramatically”
- Dr. Northrup, Hungry For Change
How are you coming along with your 40-Day Superhealing Action Plan? It's been two weeks since we were all together. Are you as excited today,as you were during the Superhealing Immersion Workshop, or has life set in and you're almost back to square one?
It really doesn't matter, if you haven't followed the action plan as intended. You can begin again today!It's never too late to take care of yourself. And loving yourself is the foundation of good health and the superhealing engagement that leads to it.
Every thought is a cause that produces an effect. Every thought we think creates form on some level.If your mind is in a loving place--if your thoughts are of a high, position emotion- the cells of your body, your entire physiology and experience will reflect that. If your mind is in a fearful place-if your thoughts are of a lower dense engergy, your experience will reflect that. The way to change the nature of your experience is to change the nature of your thoughts.
I mentioned briefly that neuroscientists have found the pathways of love in the brain. And it's pattern of brain activation is quite different from the pathways of fear, i.e. stress.
Through the authority of loving thought, we are given the power to turn any situation that is not love back into love, starting with thinking about it differently. We do this by identifying our own lovelessness and being willing to let it go. Thinking this way-which is sometimes easy, sometimes not-is the mental habit of the "miracle-minded."
When a scientific microscope is trained on human emotions, poetic sentiments devolve into the characteristics of neurons, neurotransmitters and hormones.
In 2010, scientists attending the Society for Neuroscience conference in San Diego discussed their research in that vein. Among their subjects, the role of oxytocin, the so-called "cuddle hormone."
Oxytocin's influence is far more widespread than first thought, researchers said. It was initially discovered when it was identified as having a role in inducing birth contractions.
Higher levels of the hormone are associated in men with increased generosity, and in women,more happiness and better ability to cope with the setbacks of life, according to the scientists.
"Women who release more (oxytocin) just tend to connect better to other people," said Paul Zak, director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University, who led a study of 60 college-age women.
The key to happiness, from this research, really is relationships. It’s connecting to people, friendships, romantic partners, and even with strangers, that seems to generate happiness."
I do believe, that the most important relationship we will ever have is the one that goes on inside, with ourselves.
Here's a few more self-love affirmations:
I am health, strength, peace, happiness, and prosperity.
Divine love, expressing through me, now draws to me all that is needed to make me happy and my life complete.
My life is unfolding perfectly, in ways that are enchanting, exciting, and uplifting.
I love taking care of my body. My body responds so beautifully to this care.
I am magnetic to wealth and health.
When I say YES to myself and my needs, my energy always increases and I feel wonderful.
I awaken each morning feeling the promise of a new day and a new beginning.
I love moving my body. I love getting stronger and more flexible every day.
I believe I am worthy of good care, and no one is more suitably qualified to care for it than me.
