We Can Create Our World

Jul 31, 2016 01:08PM ● By Nuris Lemire

We are not always aware that we create our own life script. Our thoughts are the driving force to manifest our reality. We have a choice. If we are not feeling peaceful, relaxed, connected to our inner self, but instead rushed, fatigued and stressed, we can do “baby steps” to become grateful, healthy and balanced person.



The body is asking us to listen. It speaks to us, offering generous insights about how and what we eat and how we feel, along with what to eliminate to become healthy and balanced.


Relax and Breathe

The more we relax, the better we feel. Breathe using slow, deep, even breaths to fill the lungs to their fullest. Hold the breath for a few seconds, and then exhale slowly. The relaxation state is the body’s preference. It’s time to relax more with our meals and our life. Trust more. Play more. See if we can commit to inner peace and to finding the still place inside ourselves—the “master within”. Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu has written, “At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.”


Slow Down

Slow is the speed that best regulates people and moves the body into parasympathetic dominance—the ideal state of metabolic supremacy. Take more time with meals. It’s time to let go of the rush. Value each experience. Slow down with food, loved ones and our lives. Be present in the moment. Capture every moment, stop trying to multitask; it’s more of a hindrance.



Remember that we’re here to live, to enjoy and to celebrate. Allow experiences to be a time when we can smile, share with loved ones and affirm our beautiful life. Listen to the body. It speaks in a hidden language and has some wonderful messages to share.
