Chapter Six: Treasure Your Temple
Five months after my late mother made her transition, I met my cousin in Dubai. Traveling internationally was the best decision ever. This exotic, scenic destination turned out to be a space of healing and spiritual awakening for my temple, universe and soul. During my visit, I had the pleasure of visiting the largest mosque in the world, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Its opulence was truly breathtaking. Since it was a sacred place of worship for thousands of Muslims, they had certain guidelines in place for visitors like myself who weren’t dressed according to custom.
For women, proper attire to enter the mosque meant being completely covered from head to toe. When I reflect back upon this monumental moment in my life, I know that one’s body—more appropriately your “temple”—is a place of worship as well. One’s temple is where their mind, spirit and incredible wisdom is housed. When you cherish your temple, you are mentally guided to take care of it like a newborn baby. You will love it unconditionally, feeding it foods that give it life. You will push it to new limits by trying new activities that get your heart rate pumping. You will give it rest when it needs it. You’ll nurture it by doing things that bring it joy and happiness.
A CHANGED MIND = WYNN-ING MIND!
You are the creators of your own destiny! You are the authors of your own novel whether it's a romance, thriller or autobiography! You are the captains of your own vessel! When your Creator conceived you; He poured love, favor, faith, joy, happy-ness, and greatness into your temple.
Change is the evolution of one's universe, spirit, and temple. It's occurs when one is ready and willing to embark upon their true calling in life. From my own personal experience, I know it took me going through some serious life challenges to get me where I am at today (from getting laid off my six-figure career in advertising to the passing of my beloved mother from a myriad of health issues).
Here are 3 "wynning" tips I'd love to share with you, if you are truly ready for change in this New Year:
1). Make food your best friend, not your foe. When you starve the body by not eating until later on in the day or only eating one meal a day, you are hurting your temple. The body needs proper nourishment in order to function. Learn to eat well-balanced meals throughout the day. This might take some planning on your part, but you will see a world of difference in your temple and mind. Remember the two are connected. Testimony: I eat five small meals a day. Juicing is considered a meal. I juice veggies and fruits daily.
2). Drink more water. There is nothing more purifying to the temple and universe than H20. Why? 55 to 70 percent of an individual's body is made up of water. Consequently, the body needs constant water replenishment. The benefits are everlasting: a). Detoxifies the body. b). Increases your metabolism which means weight loss. c). Better productivity at work because your brain is mostly made up of water. (Side Note: If you don't like drinking water add fresh lemon or lime to give it some flavor).
3). Get ACTIVE. A healthy heart = active heart. This doesn't mean you have to join a gym to burn calories or get your heart rate up. Embrace an activity you enjoy doing (i.e. skating, running, or lifting weights). You'll see a world of difference in your entire being (from a more restful sleep to how you interact with others) once you make working out a part of your lifestyle.
As you continue to transform your existence, stay mind-full of these tips.
Until we connect again, continue to stay positive on your journey!
