Wouldn’t it be great to have abundant energy during the day and still have plenty to do what we love after work? C.H.E.K. (Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiologist) practitioners don’t treat the disease but the person. We teach those suffering from lack of energy how to embrace the six foundation principles, thought, breath, hydration, nutrition, exercise and sleep. Thoughts are a powerful component of energy – imagine the impact of bad news such as the death of a loved one or the windfall of a million dollars. An old saying goes, “If you want to know your thoughts of the past six months look at your body today. If you want to change your body in the next six months look at your thoughts today.” Poor quality thinking pumps out excess stress hormones. Over time, this causes hormonal imbalance, leading to decreased energy and disease. Too much stress or poor thoughts will weaken the immune system. We are all given the same amount of life force. When people are sick or tired, they are just channelling their energy differently. Physical or emotional pain is like the compass of the soul. The more the pain, the more we are out of alignment with who we are. Being stuck or blocked emotionally can be extremely painful. Sometimes, painful emotion, injury or illness can be one of the most valuable things in life. Perhaps not in the moment but in the learning curve needed to create a new life experience. This can lead to improved health, vitality, love and appreciation of life. Negative emotions stored for years are a major source of illness and disease. The subconscious mind records every picture of our past, good or bad. It is so strong that in times of stress and high emotion it can re-stimulate strong negative feelings. Professional help can clear past traumas and find the path that best suits you. I have tried several styles and continue to do so. Thoughts trigger emotions and every emotion has a hormonal and energetic reaction. Hence our psychology is our biology; simply put, the body is a manifestation of the mind. When we create what we want in life, energy increases. When we create what we don't want, energy decreases. When we are on the right path of creating what we want, we have an abundance of energy. Creating new and positive thought is a powerful way out of poor health. This must be a daily practice or habit – just like training your body. The human mind is an endlessly complex creation. Imagine it as an iceberg, with 10% above the water being the conscious mind and the remainder the subconscious. Keep looking to find the right one for you. They are all different roads to the same outcome – cleaning up the mind, rather like debugging a computer.
