Perfect Health Meditation Challenge
Today’s meditation with Deepak and Oprah focuses on the intuitive concept of health; the very concept that forms the foundation at InnerMom. Ayurveda does not focus on carrying around a scale or calculator; it does not focus on calories and fats and carbs. It brings our intention instead to the realization that, intuitively, we have so much knowledge built into the fabric of our existence; knowledge that all animals possess that guides them in their daily quest to feed and nourish their body, mind and soul. All animals instinctually know what needs to be done to live a healthy and nourishing life. There are no bookstores in the wild; no shelves lined with the How-To’s: how to eat, how to maintain our weight, or how to live a healthy, balanced life. In all the boxes and packages that line the supermarket shelves, in all the pages of the “how-to” books, we have misplaced our ability to eat and live as a species and unfortunately the result is imbalance and dis-ease. Within us exists the perfect knowledge to carry us through our lives without constantly searching the shelves for answers. We feel energized when we learn to eat in harmony with Nature based on our nature; who we are and what works best for us as individuals. When we step back and learn to appreciate all that food, real food, does for our bodies we begin to look at it with a new found respect. When we learn to eat mindfully, away from the television, paying attention to the beauty of the food on our plate, we begin to realize that food is not the problem- food is the solution.
Balancing our meals based on the six tastes, drinking water, eating fresh, organic food whenever possible and simply taking the time to eat with awareness and respect enables us to once again realize balance in our lives. Taking the time and energy to redirect our approach to our own health and wellness is the beginning of healing.
