The 30-Day Mind, Body and Soul Makeover

I’ve been on a spiritual path since late March 2007. Sometimes it’s felt more like a quest that’s taken me over the mountains and through the woods! Since that time, I’ve read countless books, listened to numerous podcasts, and attended teleseminars and webinars on different metaphysical and spiritual topics. Like me, you’ve probably heard or read sayings such as ,”You are what you eat; You’re the co-creator of your life; You’re the author of your life; You are what you think; You and your life are what you think; It takes 30-days to change a habit; and You get to choose it all.” There could be some truth to this if you and your life are out of whack.

Sometimes life has a way of sucking you in and not in a good way. When you’re caught up in family or work drama, it can wreak havoc on your body, mind, and soul. Unfortunately, you’re unaware of being caught up in the storm and don’t realize it until it’s too late. However, if you start to ‘watch or monitor’ your thoughts for a while, you’ll see how what you think contribute to the happiness you experience in life.

30-Day Mind, Body and Soul Makeover

1. You may groan about monitoring or watching your thoughts, but you don’t have to do it every day — do it for 30-days. Observe your thoughts and write them down. Be careful not to judge your thoughts or yourself. Write down how you feel about your thoughts. Be in the moment and really experience what you’re thinking.

2. Write down the foods you eat and “why” you ate them. How did they make you feel?

3. Write down if you exercised or not. Why did you exercise? Why didn’t you exercise?

4. Observe your body and write down how you feel after an argument or confrontation.

5. Observe your body and write down how you feel after you speak to certain people.

Once you complete this experiment, you may be surprised at what you discover. Here’s what you may find:

1. I’ve been creating drama in my life. Why would I do that?

2. Why do I still allow others to have power over me?

3. Yuck!

4. How true are my thoughts? Am I my thoughts?

5. Why am I thinking these thoughts if I really love me?

6. Could all this be in my head?

7. Am I the one who’s kept me in a prison?

8. Have I had the key to my own prison all this time?

9. Why do I get caught up in drama?

10. What’s lacking in my life?

11. Why am I eating a lot of sweets when I never used to?

12. How do I get my power back?

13. Why do I say “Yes” when I want to say “No?” What am I afraid of?

14. I’m tired of feeling guilty!

15. Why aren’t I doing what makes me happy?

16. Why do I care so much about what others think about me?

The above findings are what I recently discovered about my life. Luckily, I have a good sense of humor and was able to laugh about it. However, I couldn’t believe that I was the one who had the key to my self-made prison. I also didn’t realize how much I changed over the past four years and how it was affecting my relationships. When you make changes in your life, some people will fall away from your life, especially if you’ve been asking for your vibration to be raised to a higher level. If people aren’t vibrating where you’re at, it makes sense they’d slowly slip out of your life. You won’t have a lot in common anymore. This was an eye opener.

Learning to say “No” and mean it can be scary, especially when you tell a family member “No.” If you say “Yes” when you want to say “No,” you let yourself down. You’ll be helping from a place of guilt instead of love. I recently said “No” to someone and felt guilty about it. I heard my father in my head say, “I told you. You’ll have to look after the family when I’m gone. It’s your responsibility.” Oy! Thank God for Oprah who said, “Don’t wait for somebody else to save you, to complete you, to fix you. You are responsible for your own life. Take responsibility for it.” I chose to listen to Oprah and not my father; I got over the guilt.

Life is too short. You are priority #1! Let’s face it, if you’re out of alignment or unhappy, you won’t be able to help others. You won’t be that great of a parent, sister, daughter, spouse, partner, employee, etc. You’ll be agitated and won’t care anymore. It’s up to you to take your life back. Have the courage to speak up and say “No” when you want to. Find the courage (call on AA Michael, AA Raphael, or AA Ariel) and live your life that suits you, not how others think you should live your life. Get out of your head and into your body. Makeover your mind, body, and soul today and experience a brighter tomorrow and future.
