Today’s meditation teaches us and brings to the surface that every experience influences our life. Just like food we metabolize everything we encounter – physically and emotionally – so each experience becomes a part of our minds and bodies.
Negative experiences are metabolized differently than positive experiences. If you overload the system with negative experiences, it goes out of balance. To change this, we can substitute the negative with positive experiences and the input into our system changes. These inputs get metabolized into your overall wellbeing, energy level, and health. The best inputs are any experiences that make you feel lighter physically and emotionally, from the freshest organic foods to laughter to the beauty of Nature.
Positive input strengthens you on every level, making it much easier to rid your system of toxins.
The Key to Positive Input
Today’s Centering Thought is: Positive input nourishes me at every level.
Today’s Mantra: Om Sva Bhaksha (I am nourished by my true self.)
Center yourself to begin a quite solitude of mind and spirit with the thought “Positive input nourishes me at every level.” Then begin to meditate by repeating the mantra: Om Sva Bhaksha. This mantra affirms that you draw nourishment from your consciousness to your true self. With each meditation feel your mind body and spirit open just a little more to this affirmation. Each time your mind wanders come back by repeating this mantra and hold the meaning behind it – I am nourished by my true self. Simply meditate for 20 minutes.

Our bodies are a reflection of our state of mind. When we alter our mindset, we shift our body. As experience metabolizes in our body just as food does, negative experiences create heaviness and the body feels hunger and wanting.
You are responsible for the energy your body absorbs and everyday experiences become a part of your body. Your awareness transfers every thought, feeling and action into biochemical terms of input. Positive input is nourishing and negative input is toxic to your body. Your positive input is guided by your true self-expressions, such as love and gratitude.
No matter how wonderful your life is going, there is always room to increase positive input. You must set self-care as a default to prevent negative input from building up by paying attention to negative input and substituting positive input. When things are going bad, search for the positive in it or better yet, replace it with something positive. It will reflect on you with your health and peace of mind.
