On Monday’s post we looked at why health is so important to manifest prosperity. Yesterday we looked at the role of food for life. Not to belabor the point, but what we’re really discussing here is how to unleash the energy you need to live a life of wonder. One of the most important insights you’ll ever develop on prosperity is this:
Energy isn’t just a physical condition; it’s a moral virtue.
And because energy is a virtue, you can cultivate it. And cultivate it you must, because the opposite end of the spectrum is laziness. And prosperity lesson number two of the day is:
The lazy man does the most work.
It’s ironic, but millions of people spend so much energy avoiding doing things, they have no idea they’re exhausting themselves. You are designed for action, not to lie inert. The muscles, tendons, and bones of your body are fashioned for resistance. And it is that resistance which makes them stronger.
Find the most brilliant quantum physicist you can find, and ask what is the essence of all things, and she will tell you it is energy. It is a primal force that must be harnessed to accomplish anything of substance.
So what are some ways to have the most energy?
Food as we discussed yesterday is a big one. That is the fuel your engine runs on. Make sure you’re eating enough fruit and vegetables so you have good elimination. If you have putrefying food stopped up in your digestive track, the toxins seep into your bloodstream and cause you to be tired and weak, and suffer from candidiasis or chronic fatigue syndrome. (Great book on this subject is The Yeast Connection by William Crook, M.D.)
Another overlooked factor is sleep. Most people are sleep deprived. Go to bed when you’re tired. Do it early enough so you wake up for work on time, when you’re finished sleeping. If you’re using an alarm clock, it means you’re waking up before your body is getting the rest it needs. Sleep is when the heavy work of recharging and regenerating is done.
Exercise also helps energy. You need to get moving. Maybe you think it’s a chicken or the egg thing, or believe exercise will make you tired. But it’s actually the opposite. Exercise will revitalize your energy.
If you exercise, eat well, and get enough sleep, but are still not feeling the energy you want, see a doctor. One suggestion: before you go to a traditional one, find a doctor of Chinese medicine who performs acupuncture. Some Western medical professionals may doubt it, but that’s just the results of their mind viruses causing them to believe drugs and surgery are the only ways to treat disease.
A good doctor of Chinese medicine will read your pulses by feeling your wrist, look at your tongue, and tell you exactly what’s wrong with you. If you’ve never experienced it before, it’s amazing. You’ll think one of your family members called them ahead and gave your medical history.
Acupuncture keeps energy flowing through the meridians in your body and opens any blockages. The discomfort isn’t at all what you may think. You barely feel the needles and the positive results are almost immediate.
I get acupuncture as my first choice for most any illness and do a couple tunes ups every year to keep the energy flowing. If you live in South Florida, I recommend Alexandra Briand. Just know that her practice is kind of a day spa with massage, waxing, eyelash extensions and other stuff, so she’s very busy and you have to book ahead. If you have a good acupuncturist where you live, be sure and share their info below.
