(NaturalNews) Eating a variety of whole, organic foods consisting primarily of fruits and vegetables is important when it comes to good health. They're jam-packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that do everything from improve circulation to diminish depression.
However, according to experts, staying in shape mentally and physically also has a lot to do with developing, and continuing to maintain, a positive attitude that consists of self-trust.
Advice from experts on the importance of self-trust
Well-being expert Esther Hicks, who delivers positive health and wellness messages from the Abraham-Hicks team, says self-trust is essential to health. Getting information from too many sources, she explains, gets in the way of the one person best suited to improve health: the individual.
She says it's necessary to " . . . trust [our] own guidance" and "clean up [our] own vibration." By "vibration," she's referring to the energy that guides all people, the ability for each individual to heal themselves by trusting to make the choice that is ideal for them.
Hicks is not alone with these thoughts. The power of the mind and a sense of spirituality to guide health and overall wellness has been embraced by many people around the world.
NaturalNews Health Ranger Mike Adams says that paying attention to divine wisdom and consciousness is what matters. "I believe that maintaining our philosophy, our ethics, [and] our values during this lifetime is the most important thing that we could possibly do," he says. Therefore, trusting in our own beliefs to guide our decisions is critical.
Kris Carr, author of Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips, shunned a negative mindset after learning she had a rare, Stage 4 cancer in 2003. Today, she's alive and vibrant after having developed a sassy, kick-cancer-to-the-curb approach. In addition to abiding by a nutrient-dense, plant-based diet, she says her journey " . . . taught me how to listen to my brilliant inner guide . . . and connected me more deeply with the people and animals who set my heart ablaze."
Certified hypnotherapist Suzanne Jones explains that "We all have knee jerk reactions to situations . . . but if [we] really listened to [our] body . . . " people would be able to better help themselves. She suggests asking how a certain decision might feel, or does feel, for their body. Does it elicit good or bad feelings?
As a final thought, consider the words of Dr. Mark Banschick from a Psychology Today article. He explains that trusting even in boundaries can be helpful rather than life-halting limits. "May the many boundaries that define you bring joy, meaning and mission," he says. "May they serve as a vehicle to something eternal, and beyond mere mortal chains. We may be small, limited creatures. But, boy can we soar."
