Mind Body Dynamic
At the time of writing this article I am 52 years old. I am in perfect health and owe this to my philosophy of a healthy body is a reflection of a healthy mind. I believe we are more than just physical beings. I see the body as a vehicle that enables us to exist and interact in the environment of planet earth. If however we were to be born on another planet then this body would be completely unsuitable. The body is moulded by the way we think so it is in our interests to get our thoughts in line with the image we wish to create.
As a young boy I was very thin and right up to the age of about 25 I was 5’7” and weighed 110Lbs. Jeans with waist measurement of 28” were hanging off me. I hated being so thin and my mindset kept me stuck.
Thinking myself thin
The unwritten law of nature is that you create what you fear or what you dwell upon incessantly. I kept thinking how terribly thin I was and I feared being so thin for the rest of my life. I had no idea that my fears were actually creating the very thing I did not want. I had now created a belief system that was accepted by my subconscious and as such had become my waking reality. I was thin and no matter what I ate or did I was always going to be thin.
Looking back on those days now l can’t believe how ignorant I was of the laws that make so much sense to me now.
God is not listening!
I was very athletic and I played various sports. I went running at least three times a week, I played hurling and Gaelic football, I practised judo and karate and I also started weight training when I was about 15 years old. I loved pumping iron and at one stage was able to bench press my own weight. But I still remained looking very thin. No matter how much iron I pumped my body would not become the Charles Atlas I sought to emulate. To make matters worse all my friends were growing taller and were developing amazing physiques. I remember kneeling beside my bed at night and praying to become as big as my friends but no matter what I did and no matter how hard I prayed I just could not put on weight.
My prayers are answered
Then around the age of 30 I stopped doing all sport and just accepted my lot as a thin man. About two years later I was still the same height but 170Lbs with a waist measurement of 36”. I wasn’t obese but felt overweight and unfit. I had put on the weight I craved all my life and had done so as soon as I had stopped craving it. Putting on weight was effortless when I stopped trying. That was lesson #1 but it would take me 10 more years to actually realise the lesson that nature had taught me.
The power of the mind
I am now 52 years old, still 5’7” but now I weigh 140Lbs and have a waist measurement of 32” and I am proud of my body. I work out regularly and I am physically fit and healthier than I have ever been in my life.
What is the secret you might ask? No, it does not lie with me taking large doses of nutritional supplements or working out for hours every day at the gym. The secret lies in me understanding the laws of nature and by me strictly adhering to them.
By harnessing the power of my mind to work with me and not against me I now create what I want as long as it is in my best interest and the best interest of everyone involved.
