The brain of each cell in our body is not the nucleus. It is the cell wall. This wall makes the vital decision that affects a thriving cell–what gets in and what gets expelled. Both functions have to work or the cell does not do its work and mitosis, healthy cell duplication, does not happen. We have had all kinds of concern about proper nutrition and the difficulty with an environment filled with toxins, especially the foods we eat, which are very often loaded with unwanted carcinogenic chemicals. Cancer itself is not decreasing today. Some of the cures are better, but cancer itself is increasing in direct proportion to the amount of toxins in our environment and in our food. To the list of “toxic” ingredients in our food, I would add “toxins” in our negative thoughts and feelings. People with positivity being thrive at a cellular level.
There has also been increasing focus on the function of the cell that eliminates what it needs to get rid of, what it needs to expel. The cell has got to get rid of what is no longer working. Anti-oxidants are a significant part of the nutritional world today because of this concern over cellular elimination. The best anti-oxidant for your cells is happiness. How your cells thrive is directly influenced by what you believe, either positively or negatively, and especially by the emotions you feel. Cells are intricately influenced by the vibrations of our emotions.
But consider that the cell has to unload and eliminate toxins in order to stay healthy. So with the cell, so with the person. We have to eliminate what doesn’t work for us. For some this is called their “stop doing” list. Consider the feelings that you need to feel less in order to feel better. What feelings do you need to eliminate to feel better? Feelings are a measure of feedback about how we are doing, but they are much more than that. We can get into patterns of feelings that are our most dangerous toxins.
What needs to go, who needs to go, where does elimination and “stop-doing” need to happen? Most of what we need to stop doing is a part of the social living habits of our day. We are just used to doing things that no longer serve us, that no longer engage us and provide a source of happiness. They do not engender love, peace, joy, gratitude and hope easily. They are just too much work for the return they give us. Cleaning out your closets is one thing, but cleaning out your emotional life of events, places, people, and obligations that no longer serve is important, from your cells to your smile.
