PUT GOD IN YOUR DIET

Put God in YOur Diet OneThis is the time of year when we reap what we sow during the festive holiday season, and we rely on New Year’s Resolutions – with a firm resolve – to get back on track. For many of us, getting back on track means shedding unwanted pounds.  But this is one year that I’m not worried about weight because months ago, I put God in my diet.

Prayer TwoIf you want something delicious, calorie-free and certain to reduce unwanted inches, try God. God is guaranteed to get results, guard against any excessive indulgence and give you favor for the process. The right people will show up to help you reach your fitness goals; the right opportunities will manifest for your magnificence; the yoga 3right methodology to keep you motivated will reveal itself; and the right decisions that you need to make to stay spiritually fit will guide you to success.

God only requires a one-day-at-a-time plan. All you have to do is put one foot before the other with prayerful purpose, and the sheer gravity of Spirit will pull you in the right direction.  When you awaken, acknowledge with Put God in Your Diet Threeyour heart that God is in every breath that you take. Stretch with the magnificence of God in your limbs. Rise with the boldness and conviction of God in your thoughts.  Move with the passion of God in your purpose to be your best in your new day.

Have you ever observed animals and birds when they awaken? They stretch. They flex and bend their bodies because they have a constant diet of God in their lives. They know what to do. Birds, running twoeven the pigeons – who are jaded New York streetwalkers – take to the air in unison for their morning flight relays. I love to see them circling the air as I make my way to the gym.

Maybe like my husband Marlon, you prefer to ride your bike.  Maybe like my brother Chris, you prefer to walk. Maybe like me, you prefer to lift weights. Maybe like my friend Vaughn, you prefer to run. Maybe like my friend Kelly, you prefer to practice yoga. Maybe like my friend Mary, you prefer the elliptical machine.  It all counts. NYSC

If you don’t have a gym or a fitness class and you’re in the New York area, contact my friend Priscilla Upshaw-Wimbly at the New York Sports Club (718-643-4400).   She will sign you up with a good fitness deal and expedite the Universe’s conspiracy to help you obtain your goals. (Tell her that I sent you.)

Put God in Your Diet FivePutting God in your diet is about as simple as drinking water. Jesus said I will give you living water. Water is the most essential life-sustaining beauty treatment there is.  If your urine is dark or you feel faint, you are not listening when Spirit tells you to drink enough water!

Put God in Your DietPutting God in your diet demands that you bless your food and be mindful in eating. You’d be surprised how small your stomach is: about two palms full. Mindful eating conditions us to listen to our bellies telling us that they are full or near full. As you bless your food, envision the body that you desire, see that ripped six-pack, see those healthy knees running and jumping like never before, see those flexible limbs.

Put God in YOur Diet SixPutting God in your diet is not about wearing yourself ragged, it’s about rest, rejuvenation and revelation. Rest will give us the rejuvenation that supplies the energy to achieve our fitness goals. Rejuvenation will give us the revelations that will show us how to form and shape our workout plans, eating habits, and fitness goals.  Revelations will keep us focused on the upward prize – of which physical fitness is just one aspect.

MARIANDALE 4Putting God in your diet requires that you listen to what God is telling you.  Listening to Spirit is your most important meal of the day. God is always speaking, but we seldom take the time to be still and know what God is saying.  We have to listen throughout the day: during our morning meditation, while we are journaling, in our prayers, through our study of truth, by our good Prayer Threedeeds done with compassion for others. (For more on how to do this, see my book Prayers for Those Standing on the Edge of Greatness on Amazon.)

Putting God in your diet demands that you maximize your potential beyond the mere festive mood of celebrating the new year.  You see, the real party – the one that you don’t want to miss – is the one with Jesus Christ, who is here in our consciousness; with the Holy Spirit, who is here as our guide; and with God, who is here in every single morsel of life that we partake.

Join us on New Year’s Day as we put God in our diets through our series on “Christ Consciousness:  Seven Lessons for Living According to the Christ Within.”  This Sunday, we will celebrate “Being Our Best.”

Namaste,

POWER PRAYER FOR HEALTH, WHOLENESS AND PROSPERITY By Cecilia Loving

Center yourself for a moment in the silence,
breathing in and breathing out the divine presence,
in which we live and move and have our being.
And allow yourself to turn on and tap into a prayerful state of being One with all of the Goodness and Greatness that God Is.

When we are really centered in Oneness, we realize that we do not have to pray for God to make an appearance.
We do not have to hope that we will be given Wholeness and Health and Realization of our Greatest Good.
We do not have to long for Prosperity and Riches and Divine Ideas.
We do not even have to worry about the right relationships and loved ones.
We only have to realize that God is here.
Spirit is here.
Love is here.
Perfect health and wholeness is here.
Infinite and inexhaustible source is here.
It is as the Apostle Paul said,
the Divine Source that
we live and move and have our being in.

Feel the love of the Oneness of Spirit engulf you and uplift you
and vibrate within every cell of your being.
Know that the power of your potential and your talents and your gifts
radiate out from you to attract the right person
and the right circumstances
and the right channels for you to be blessed
with good that is greater than you could ever imagine.

If there is health and wholeness that you want,
it is embracing you right now.
If there are divine opportunities that you want,
they are knocking at your door right now.
If there is hope that you need,
it is giving way to deeper understanding right now.
As Jesus said, don’t worry about what you will eat,
and what you will drink,
and what you will wear.
The Father-Mother-Everything-Almighty Love that
is never separate from you already knows what
you have need of — before you even ask.
Yes, we have judged by appearances.
We have sat by the pool of Bethesda,
and even when the water was stirred,
we refused to get in.
We have been afraid to walk the water
even when we held Spirit’s hand as our own.

We have asked — not believing.
We have sought — not to find, and
we have knocked — seriously doubting that the door would be opened.
But today, in this season of your birth, we will turn a new leaf.

We will open our hearts to the Kingdom of God is within us.
We will do the things that we never believed possible.
We will be restored the years that the locust has eaten.
We will trust that our Father and our Mother God
will fill us with the awesome power of new dimensions,
bless us with the miraculous promise of new heights, and
anoint us with the holy salvation of greatness.

We will open our hearts to receive the perfect health, wisdom and truth,
of all that Love is.
We will learn to walk on the water of Faith,
and ride the wings of Spirit’s might.
We will reach more and more and more of our goals,
and know the hallelujah of an answered prayer — again,
and again,
and again.

We will wear our blessings well
because we already flow with the unlimited
power of the universe —
manifesting it’s good in all shape and form.
We will wear the transformation of a new freedom
— to really express our being as the children of the most High
and the prophets of a New Age.

We will sing songs of gratitude without end,
and worship because we are worthy.

We will thank the earth for its strength, the universe for its ideas, the vortex for its vision,
and the love that radiates as life —
for teaching us that there is nothing that we cannot do,
nothing that we cannot imagine,
nothing that we cannot be with the power of God.
We will ride the storm.
We will weather the tide.
We will prevail against the mighty waves.

We will be reborn in the glory of strength, wisdom, and success.
We will thank Jesus for teaching us that we are gods.
We will really remember that the Holy Spirit is in us,
and so is the Father,
and so is He.

We are the joyful season of promise —
ageless in our task and unlimited in our mission.
We are the seeds of pure possibility —
rising through lack to claim our abundance.
We are the hope of change —
full of God’s good health,
Spirit’s unlimited movement,
and Love’s infinite strength.

We are the new joy of a day.

And so it is, and so be it.
