I have been on this new journey for a couple of weeks now and have been going through a mind, body, spirit transformation that has been incredible! I'm participating in a 90 day transformation program so I have been getting coached and educated on becoming healthier all around - but I'm telling you the Spirit has been my biggest guide through all of this. It's been amazing.
I won't go into all the details today, but I can truly testify that the Lord puts certain people in our path at the right time. I have been getting personal revelation to get my mind, body and spirit as strong as I can for hard times that lie ahead (during these last days).
It's sort of been like this: A friend calls up from out of state that I haven't talked to in forever. Through small talk she recommends a video about food and nutrition that I should watch on Netflix. I watch the video and it opens up a whole new area of health that I never thought much about before but now I see the importance of it. The Spirit begins to confirm to me that this video is important and I should pay attention. I then share it with my family. My sisters and my mom are positively influenced by it as well. We all start to make some positive changes. I then have a couple over for dinner whom I didn't really know at all. They are friend's of my mother-in-law who was visiting. When they came I thought they would just be visiting with her most of the time, but to my surprise they were there to take me further on my journey - (neither of us knew it at the time).
They shared a very touching experience with us and it was strangely connected to the video I had watched and a book I had read (about an entirely different subject). It was all coming together now. I was being prepared. Long story short - the Spirit has been very strong and very loud in my life ever since. I was lead to another book that brought up an interesting soul shaking question that was directly answered in sacrament meeting a few hours later. That talk was just for me and I have never felt the Spirit so strong in a sacrament meeting before. I then go have a body scan done which brings up what the Spirit had just taught me in that sacrament talk, and I am made aware of some health concerns that are connected to what I just learned and am taught how to fix them. I am blown away at what and how much the Spirit has been teaching me over the past couple of weeks and so grateful that I have been in tune. I am now working at continuing to humble myself so that I can be even more in tune to the Spirit as this chaotic world of ours continues to spin out of control.
A couple nights each month I attend a class for this 90 program I mentioned earlier that teaches me how to get my mind, body and spirit 100%. The goal is to have a perfect immune system by the end of the 90 days, which is connected to being free of emotional distress, negative baggage, being at peace in your life and new eating habits. Throughout this process I will naturally lose weight and heal any ailments. When all the body's systems are functioning properly the body can naturally heal itself as it's designed to do. That means everything from acne to arthritis. I don't have either but it was just an example :) What I love about my coach is that she ties all of this into the gospel. She teaches us how to apply the gospel and the atonement into this whole process. I never before connected wanting to be healthier to the atonement. Amazing!
My new friends (the couple that I had over for dinner that I mentioned earlier) had told me that he (the husband) had been diagnosed with a rare and lethal cancer 5 years ago. It happened right has he became a new bishop. He was told he would not live past five years and that the cancer was so bad that all they could do was cut the tumors out but he would not be able to get chemo to kill the cells. So, he needed to begin making plans to say goodbye to family and take care of things.
Instead, he decided that he wasn't going to let the doctor's words become his fate. He wasn't going to accept an impending death sentence. Through prayer, rigorous research, and travels to specialists outside of the country, he was led on a journey that changed his life and saved his life. It is now 5 years later and he has not needed any surgeries since to remove any tumors. He feels healthier than he has ever been at 60 years old.
Back to the classes I'm attending: this week we learned about the amazing research that has been done with water by Masaru Emoto a Japanese scientist. You may have heard of him. He discovered that words, music, language and writing have the power change the appearance of water. You have to watch these videos below to understand what I'm talking about (I posted them below). He takes photographs of water before and after he gives it a word, phrase or music. Good music and words create these beautiful microscopic crystals that look like snowflakes and bad words and music turn the water very ugly and changes the color to browns and blacks. It's incredible! Our bodies are made up of 70% water so think about what words and music do to our own bodies which affects our health and out spirit. Masaru Emoto also shows how water that has been blessed or prayed over, turns beautiful as well. He uses this "good" water to help heal people.
After learning this, the Spirit reminded me that this is why we pray and bless our food - not only to help it be safe for our consumption but to make it good for us. Who would have known that in addition to the nutrients we receive, the changing of the water itself in our food is key to helping the food be good for us and our spirit. Our food is made up of water - think about how blessing it can dramatically help our bodies. I realize now that it probably would be a good thing to pray over my garden, the water I drink, the snacks I eat...etc. It may sound wacky or like I'm overdoing it but I'm telling you it works! Everything improves.
Water truly has an amazing energy that is affected by us. Water is also essential to life. How many times are living waters mentioned in the scriptures? When this thought came to my mind, the Spirit directed me to the following scriptures:
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
The influence of good and evil are powerful and real. The power of God and Satan are real. Through the Savior and His atonement - all can be healed. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ amen.
