Steep cost of hate completely erased by love

Posted by Keith Wommack on Jul 19, 2016    |    11 Comments »

If we are unaware or forget that we live to express divine love, we give room for hate, evil, to take on an apparent realness when there is no need to do so. On the other hand, an understanding of God’s allness and goodness can prevent evil from hijacking our thought and society as a whole.

 

Health regardless of diet, lifestyle, and genes

Posted by Keith Wommack on Jun 21, 2016    |    4 Comments »

One hundred and fifty years ago, after a couple of decades of research, trials, and victories, a woman in New England – Mary Baker Eddy – discovered it was possible to experience health regardless of lifestyle, diet, and genes.

In 1866 she had a significant healing that pointed away from these presumed materialistic aids to health in a way that the citizens of Roseto, Pennsylvania, just under a century later, might have felt some kinship with.

Why?

 

Master harmful beliefs to improve your body

Posted by Keith Wommack on May 12, 2016    |    11 Comments »

We must admit that we often allow our minds to be filled and governed by fears, hates, anger, and stress. Each of these can apparently impact our bodies in harmful ways. With this awareness, can we afford to sit back and let beliefs wreak havoc on our bodies? I don’t believe we can, not when it is possible to correct harmful beliefs with a divine sense of love and spiritual understanding.

The list of addictions plaguing mankind is long. Alcohol, gambling, illegal and prescription drugs, and pornography are just part of the inventory. Each causes havoc on the lives of the addicted and those close to them. Because of this, it’s important to conquer addiction with urgency. Neglecting a need is not an option.

 

Tips For a Wise Health Consumer

When it comes to health care, being an intelligent consumer requires diligent examination.

If you are observant, you may notice various published tips exist to guide you.

Most of these recommendations focus entirely on the utilization of conventional medicine. But, if you have ever been curious about spiritual options for healing and health, below are a few word-to-the-wise ideas for those contemplating the use of spiritual/thought-based care.

 

Hold on to a healthy heartbeat

How many times have you watched a drum line perform and found yourself moving to the beat of those drums?

There’s a pulse, a rhythm to life, and the sounds of synchronized drumming somehow seem to stir us to recognize the marvel of that.

And there’s more to the beating of drums than meets the eye (or ear). Researchers studying the effects of drumming acknowledge that an involvement with stimulating rhythms supplies us with health benefits.

And apparently the drums themselves are optional!

Waves breaking on a shore, raindrops on a tin roof, as well as footsteps hitting the pavement during a morning run are all stimulating rhythmic patterns. They, too, can be life-enhancing cadences.

What makes captivating beats so beneficial? Could it be that the audible patterns that enrich us echo a deeper, spiritual lilt that has a divine origin?

 

Are you sick of politics? No, I mean literally!

Already overdosed on campaign rhetoric? Tired of political posturing?

As tired of the lengthening of political seasons as you may be, there are some who are actually sick and tired. The stress over political battles has impacted their health.

It’s good to be an involved citizen, but, nasty politics can cause extremes in thought and unpleasant physical symptoms. It seems the more negative a political campaign gets, the more illness is experienced.

While you should support and vote for candidates you truly feel can best govern, getting caught up in the anxiety and anger of opposing sides won’t help. It will only add to what harms.

 

Love’s Story includes its healing power

Posted by Keith Wommack on Oct 15, 2015    |    8 Comments »

The seven-night Oprah Winfrey television series, Belief, airing October 18 – 24, explores our “ongoing search to connect with something greater than ourselves.”

The second in the series, Belief: Love’s Story, explores loving unconditionally, love that unites, and loving your enemies. As critical as these are to those yearning to put their faith into practice, I believe that “Love’s Story” is even richer if you also take a look at Love’s power to heal the body.

 

Walk in the Park Improves Health

Throughout history, moments spent strolling through floral paths, even planting vegetable and herb gardens, have been found to be therapeutic.

A Health & Science article in The Washington Post put a spotlight on the benefits of nature moments. It examined Robert Zarr’s “innovative community health program,” DC Parks Rx, which is “committed to combating the woes of urban living by prescribing time outdoors.”

Zarr, a pediatrician, is convinced that a “growing body of scientific evidence” indicates “that many of the chronic scourges of city life can be prevented or alleviated by reconnecting with nature.”

How does communing with nature help?

 

Suicide and the Lifeline of Your Spiritual Authority

Posted by Keith Wommack on Sep 14, 2015    |    10 Comments »

The tragedy of fifteen-year-old Sadie Walker has me thinking about lifelines.

Sadie took her life on Christmas Day last year, according to the Dallas Morning News, and her story suggests that doom and gloom thinking can be contagious.

Sadie had joined an online chat group of teenagers talking about self-harm – a community of silent co-sufferers hidden behind the veil of Internet privacy laws.

She had joined out of compassion, hoping to offer comfort and support to those struggling. Instead, the negative environment consumed her. Sadie quickly became overwhelmed and took her own life.
