Blueprint Of Perfect Health

Did you know that your unconscious mind has a blueprint of perfect health?

When working directly with a client who’s struggling with body weight, health or confidence challenges, I often find myself helping the person rediscover their blueprint of perfect health.

The blueprint of perfect health and healing is located in the deepest part of the unconscious mind, and for some of you who may be thinking “why does the body become unwell if this blueprint exists” then my answer to you would be the same as any client who asks me.

enjoy lifeJust because you have a blueprint of perfect health does not necessarily mean you will use it. There are many people out there with a great singing voice who never use it. There are people who are born with many unique talents, yet not all of us use those talents – the blueprint of perfect health can be thought of in the same way.

Just because your unconscious mind has the blueprint of perfect health, does not necessarily mean that the unconscious mind will use it. The unconscious mind is constantly reshaping itself based upon our experience in this world, from birth until death. Just think about this…

What have you been told and led to believe about what’s possible around healing and health since you were born?

In his book, Quantum Healing, Dr Deepak Chopra writes, ‘the length of time for the body to replacethe cells that make up our bodies (hair, skin, organs, blood and everything in-between) depends upon what is being replaced, anywhere from hours to 2 years. So if our cells are constantly being replaced, then that really means we all have brand new bodies within a two year time period.Untitled-4

The latest research in neuro-science has shown that the mind influences the body in a very real way (our neurology influences our physiology), and that is easily measurable by the fight or flight response.

When you are exposed to something of potential danger, your body has an instant programmed reaction (at the unconscious level) of either fight or flight. I remember being confronted on the school yard by a bunch of bullies, looking at the grins on their faces, hearing their sniggers and feeling my heart begin to race as my mind shouted “run!”

Needless to say, we’ve all found ourselves in situations similar to that, and other situations where we became angry and started to fight, and as a result, we noticed the changes in our bodies – from the increase in heart rate, to the skin prickles and sweat, to the increase in mental and visual focus and so on.

So if our neurology (mind) influences our physiology (our cells), and Dr Deepak Chopra states that the maximum amount of time it takes for every single cell in our body to be replaced is around two years, then why is it that if we have a lump now, that in two years’ time that lump is still there?

It is because your unconscious mind has not yet transferred the blueprint of perfect health over to the blueprint that the unconscious mind uses to create the body.

If you would like to learn more about the mind-body connection and your capacity for healing, I would recommend reading Deepak Chopra’s book Quantum Healing.

What made you turn into a health conscious advocate?

I was living a life where I didn’t feel happy or myself at all, I was drinking alcohol and smoking, had a job I hated and decided I needed to do a detox. I read the book Raw Food Diet by Natalia Rose and never looked back. I decided to nurture myself through clean eating which was merely a minor part in the massive life transformation I had undergone. Following that I decided to quit my job and embarked on this journey of following my passion and setting an example for others to follow their own dreams.

What is planned for you in future?

I really want to help people and learn much about the healing benefits of foods, so my next plan is to travel around the world and work at different health retreats so I can be around those who need help and learn from experienced and knowledgeable people. I see myself opening a sanctuary myself one day which will incorporate many healing techniques for the mind, body and spirit. My own sustainable heaven.

What is your ‘must have’ on a healthy diet?

Well I believe fresh cold press juices is key to a healthy diet and the best way to startUntitled-6 introducing live and nutritionally rich foods into a standard diet. It the easiest way to start incorporating something healthy for those who aren’t really sure where to begin so I advocate a green vegetable juice everyday as a start, then the rest can follow.

Describe your eating routine in a day

I start with a green juice, and then I might have a smoothie or my own coconut yoghurt or chia pudding. For lunch I usually have a really big bowl of salad with whatever seasonal produce is available. Then I keep dinner pretty light, with either a soup or another salad or some steamed greens.

Yoga is for Every Body

As a yogi I like to feel strong and flexible and balanced. It feels so good to have everything in the right proportion and functioning correctly- truly, you feel amazing!

Here are some of the most common questions I get asked:

“How long does it take for yoga to work?77

” “Where is the strength in yoga?”

“What do you do for cardio?”

“What should a yogi eat – must I turn vegetarian?”

“What’s so good about water?”

As in many instances of health, the results show up when you do. Yoga is the slowest medicine in the world, but it will work you inside to outside in due time. And it’s the inside that’s the tricky part- you can’t see internally (to see, for example, that your liver is the right colour for its correct function) and if you’re not tuned in to your body’s own signals then you’re not receiving all the messages that will help you see what is happening eventually on the outside! Yoga provides you the time to listen and learn your own body signals- we call it Savasana, a fantastic posture of complete stillness that teaches patience, breath and healing.

For someone like me, who is naturally flexible, I do work on the strength aspects of the yoga class.  Strength for me is developed by moving slowly and focusing on muscles to keep me in place- as opposed to relying on flexibility to swing through a posture and depend on balance to keep me there.  My muscles may not be huge but they help me to do some pretty cool things – I resist gravity and use my own body weight to get my muscle definition.

Of course, I do yoga for cardio. One of Bikram Yoga’s shortest held poses is one of our highest heart rate poses. It is 10 seconds, one step, balancing on one leg and I reckon it is worth about 15mins of running time. A Bikram Yoga class is interval training like nothing else and can be done in any weather!

I teach plenty of people who are very strong with very little flexibility. I also teach plenty of people who are very flexible with very little strength. And there are plenty of people off balance, literally! I look at it like this: the right amount of Strength PLUS the right dosage of Flexibility will bring you Balance in the middle, regardless of whether we talk body, mind or spirit.

You don’t need to be vegetarian, but do look at what you are putting inside your body. Do little changes- like replace dairy milk with rice/almond milk. Give it a few weeks, see how you feel. Now find something else- find excess sugar and give it the flick. Give it a few weeks, see how you feel. This is the process of elimination and creation. If it doesn’t serve you, then let it go. Could your meals be Calorie Reduced Optimum Nutrition? Small portions can still yield high nutrients- it’s what’s inside the food that counts. You could keep eating the same food but spend money on tablets for vitamins and minerals. Or look at what is in your food and redefine what you need to eat for what you need to expend each day.

Yoga is for Every Body. There are plenty of yoga styles and centres around you. Find a great teacher and a class that will help you- and don’t forget to give yourself the time you deserve to look and feel better with yoga as your guide.
