Anything you repeat becomes your foundation – Serge Benhayon
When I first heard this, I asked myself the following questions and I did not like my answers.
- What are you doing consistently everyday?
- What are you repeating everyday that you know is harming you?
- What are you doing every day that is supporting your body?
Think about it – when we build a house we know there has to be a solid foundation so that it can support us in the years ahead. This is what the house will stand on and if the foundation is not deep, strong and steady then it will rock our house.
So let us say the house is your body. What foundation are you going to build that will support it through life no matter what the weather or what challenges it has to face?
- Does your foundation have cracks in it?
- Does your foundation have holes in it?
- Does your foundation have true commitment?
- Does your foundation have deep love and care?
- Does your foundation support your body fully?
- Does your foundation allow you to deal with daily challenges?
- Does your foundation inspire others to build their own foundation?
Anything you repeat becomes Your Foundation. This is serious and well worth taking note.
So if you go to bed late everyday and wake up feeling exhausted – that is your foundation.
If you need sugar to get you through the day – that is your foundation.
If you need coffee, tea or any caffeine to stimulate you – that is your foundation.
If you are stressed every time you get involved with other people’s stuff – that is your foundation.
If you keep getting headaches but not look at why you get them – that is your foundation.
If you spend your day judging others – that is your foundation.
You put your kids, partner or parents before taking care of you – that is your foundation.
If you stress about anything on a daily basis – that is your foundation.
If you are constantly anxious – that is your foundation.
If you need your cigarettes or drugs everyday – that is your foundation.
If you need your chocolate everyday – that is your foundation.
If you eat fast food and take-away – that is your foundation.
If you need a glass of wine or beer after work, to take the edge off life – that is your foundation.
If you have always had money issues and just accept that – that is your foundation.
If you are angry everyday – that is your foundation.
If you are frustrated with life everyday – that is your foundation.
If you are not committed to life – that is your foundation.
If you wake up depressed everyday – that is your foundation.
If you live in fear everyday – that is your foundation.
If you always blame the world for your problems – that is your foundation.
If you are comfortable making excuses why you don’t like your life – that is your foundation.
If you moan about your family everyday – that is your foundation.
If you live a life avoiding people everyday – that is your foundation.
If you are always dishonest with your self and others – that is your foundation.
If you are always making excuses for your life – that is your foundation.
If you are taking no responsibility for the choices you make everyday – that is your foundation.
This is well worth pondering on and it makes simple sense to have a good look at exactly what it is that makes up your foundation.
The first step is to admit what exactly is YOUR Foundation and Accept it.
Then what you don’t like that is repeated daily, you have the choice to change.
Slowly, slowly taking small steps by making new choices that you can repeat and feel the benefits will help to build consistency.
Be sensible about your approach, so you take time to practice and repeat daily what works.
Once you got that, lock it in – then make sure you keep repeating, so it becomes normal and you don’t even have to think about it.
To keep it simple, your body is the house and the foundation you stand on is what your body has as support to go through each day.
So if you are going to bed late every single day then that is your foundation. You are guaranteed to feel tired and exhausted every single day. So if something happens and you get challenged, you will be disturbed in your body because your foundation is not steady, strong and solid. Your foundation is rocky, weak and exhausted.
We know that building a solid foundation takes some time and small steps build a stronger foundation – something worth considering.
The following are some of the simple and practical things that are a part of my foundation –
- Going to bed early everyday
- Taking a nap on days where it is possible
- Walking with no agenda
- Having a face cleansing ritual twice a day
- Preparing my clothes for the next day
- Heating my clothes before putting them on
- Wearing layers to consistently stay warm
- Wearing two pairs socks
- Using hand cream few times daily
- Massaging my feet after shower/bath
- Planning food to eat
- Taking a pause before I eat
- Cooking food in advance to support me in the week
- Taking time out to clean my home
- Letting go of anything that does not support me
- Cleaning the kitchen sink every evening
- Doing my laundry regularly
- Emptying the bins
- Drinking hot water when I wake up
- Writing stuff like this that may help others
- Stretching my body with Simple Living exercises
- Doing my stop and pause before leaving the house
- No TV, computer or mobile phone in the evening
- Tidying up during wind down time before bed
- Drinking my sleep support tea
- Using the ‘Our Cycles’ app before bedtime*
- Reading from Book 7 just before bed*
- Using a healing eye pillow every day*
So this gives you a good idea of what I repeat everyday and this has now become my foundation.
I live in the UK so there are odd days I do not go walking because of the weather – that is ok as I am not here to be perfect, just real.
The list may seem boring if repeated daily, but what if you actually give it a go and start your own list that supports you?
We are all different so whilst my husband has similar things, his list is a bit different – for example he does shift work, so he prepares everything the night before in the kitchen for what he needs to support his food for work. He does the gym to support his body.
You do not get bored with your simple and practical routine.
Day in and day out it feels natural to live in this way and I am always reviewing and refining so there are small changes, but the general foundation remains solid.
The mind wants more and more stimulation and distraction but the body is happy with a daily routine and repeated things that support it. It does not ask for anything more and there is a deep level of contentment in living this way everyday.
The bonus is you take time to take care of you and the tick tock clock no longer has control over you. You always have the time to deal with anything that is given to you.
Think about it – a baby has a sleep rhythm and eats when hungry.
So why do we not carry on taking deep care of loving our self and doing what it takes to support our precious body? Once upon a time we were sweet and cute and everyone could feel we were precious and yummy, so where did we lose that?
We have the ability to take care of our self and our environment and this new responsibility has rewards beyond words. You get to feel alive and well everyday as you have vitality levels that you may not have had before. You have things in order and in place that support you and your body and this means that stress is no longer part of your life.
Life will send you variables (challenges) that can mess up your plans for the day, but because you have a solid strong foundation, you can deal with anything that comes your way, as you feel equipped. You are not exhausted and you are not stressed. You are holding steady and that allows you to deal with anything that comes your way.
Having a Sound Foundation means you really can help others because the body is not tired and depleted. It is alive and has the capacity to go the extra mile without pulling on its resources. Why? Because you repeat things that work and support your body, so what you need is already there to deal with anything, yes Anything.
You have your own in-built support system – Your Body.
