This may be hard to believe, but as a doctor I’ve seen many patients with beautiful, young, so-called perfect bodies who never listen to them. They are too worried to know what their bodies are actually saying. They are too wrapped up in body image, and the whole scam about being perfect. Ironically, their bodies are all in their heads. Your body and mind are meant to be a whole, and to ensure that they are, your whole existence is based on feedback loops. Body listens to mind; mind listens to body. Awareness is the link. Make no mistake: Every cell knows when you are unhappy, anxious or stressed. A cell’s awareness is expressed in chemical reactions instead of words. No matter. The message comes through loud and clear. Published in Oprah.com
If you’re struggling with how to define your life beyond material goods, Deepak Chopra has seven ways for you to make the shift, once and for all, to a purpose-driven life and authentic happiness.
One of the most positive ways to live is to look on every obstacle as a hidden opportunity. This holiday season poses huge challenges for those among us who have lost their jobs or feel financially insecure. Even if you don’t fall into that category, the evening news brings worries on many fronts, from the deficit to terrorism. I’d like to propose that there is a common problem in all these things that you can turn into an opportunity.

It’s well known that the most expensive medical technology in America is a doctor’s ballpoint pen. Doctors call for hundreds of billions of dollars in unnecessary tests and procedures every year. This has become a major thrust in healthcare reform. But now we discover that the prescription pad can also be deadly.
Mile-long shopping lists, work fatigue, cranky relatives and demanding children means it’s natural to feel stressed out at the holidays. But Deepak Chopra says you can change it all just by changing who you are in each situation. Find out how!
We all know the complaints: family grievances, stressful shopping, never enough time to get everything done, fatigue and collapse. Therapists brace themselves for the holidays as depressed patients become more depressed, addictive patients become more addicted and winter grayness casts its pall.

Instead of getting your energy from food, work or other people, spiritual author Deepak Chopra suggests finding infinite energy from the spirit that lives within you.
Where do you get your energy? Until you know the answer, your sources of energy will be limited. Food can only supply so many calories, and quite often, if those calories come from fat or sugar, there is actually a falling off or dulling of energy. If your energy comes from being with people, you won’t be energized when you are alone. If your energy comes from working, it will last much longer and be more renewable but eventually bring fatigue.

This is a country where the haves help the have nots. The House’s passage of sweeping health care reform proved that such a spirit is still alive, as it is during wars and depressions. But the massive holdouts in the House vote show that the last thirty years of reactionary policies has weakened the altruism of America. How could over 200 Congressmen act exactly like their blinkered forebears who voted against Social Security and Medicare when those reforms were passed?
Subtle action is the most powerful tool we have to change our energy. Deepak Chopra explains how we can change the energy in our daily lives by viewing our bodies as a flowing process guided by energy.
Recently I’ve been discussing how to change your energy. Many problems—physical and mental—seem to come down to a person’s beliefs, habits, lifestyle, moods and emotions. We use the words “positive” and “negative” to describe people we know, yet modern medicine hasn’t been able to find the source of these factors. There’s plenty of data to prove that people who undergo traumatic events, such as being widowed or losing a job without warning, suffer from lowered immune response. There are countless studies linking stress and poor health. CONTINUE READING AT OPRAH.COM
