Unlock the secret to enhancing your metabolism so you can increase in energy and feel good in your body.
The New Year is quickly approaching and the media is beginning to push weight loss resolutions down our throats. Keep yourself and your goals in check with these surprising truths about metabolism.
The body was beautifully designed – it works like a well-oiled machine; it heals and repairs itself if given the chance; it communicates with itself millions of times each day; and it has multiple energetic systems that work synergistically with one another to keep you alive.
All things are energy. You know this or you wouldn’t be here.
Think of all the energetic systems that are spinning and working each and every day to help keep you alive.
The energetic rhythm of the heart beat and its electro magnetic field can be scientifically detected some three to eight feet from the body; the energetic rhythm of the brain and its electro magnetic field that communicates with the heart and gut microbiome to keep you healthy; the gut microbiome itself and its function in digestion and nutrient assimilation, which is basically the center for all physical health maintenance and Healing.
The surprising truth about metabolism
The digestion and metabolism of food and nutrients is the outcome of the energetic system at work in your stomach and gut. Have you ever wondered what guides these systems? 🤔 The Sun and Moon, of course! In the case of metabolism, we will be focusing on the role of the Sun.
It is no coincidence that the third chakra is called the Solar Plexus. It is smack dab in the middle of your belly, right near your stomach and some of your digestive organs, and its color is yellow.
As the Sun rises and sets throughout the day in a rhythmic cycle, so too does your metabolism. When you wake in the morning, your metabolism is ready to be fired up with a small, well balanced meal to break your long overnight fast. You don’t need to have a full meal, but you should eat something (having a freshly juiced drink or smoothie counts!).
By midday, when the Sun is at its height and shining with all of its power and glory, so too is your metabolism. Lunch time is the perfect time of day to indulge in a big, hearty meal. It should be your main meal of the day and will power you through the afternoon until dinner time.
Your metabolism is working at peak efficiency during this time so it’s ready to receive and burn through whatever you ingest. Be sure to make smart choices about eating foods that are Energy-giving and not Life-draining.
As the Sun slowly makes its descent and winds down for the evening, your metabolism will also be following suit. Dinner time is when your metabolism will be functioning more slowly. Avoid having too much protein during these hours because they are hard to digest and could disrupt your sleep for the night.
The saying goes, Eat Breakfast like a Prince, Lunch like a King, and Dinner like a Pauper, and there is a perfectly good reason for that!
All in all, these meal times are opportunities to tune in and listen to your body, to learn its specific and personal cues, and to begin decoding its messages. This is where Healing begins!
