I feel called to talk a little about exercise. I don’t think enough people actually do it regularly.
That’s the key, regularly. There is no real point in just doing a bit here and there. It doest work. It is regular movement of energy that works and gets the the flowing going. And that is one of the keys to health.
It sounds obvious but from what I see not many people actually act on this information.
Exercise is simple. All it really is is movement of energy. Energy must move or it stagnates. If it’s energy inside the body, inside the blood system, lymph system, bones or nervous system, it needs to move, period.
The lymphatic system is a major drainage system for cellular waste, but it relies on movement of energy to work. No movement, no elimination of lymphatic waste. No elimination of lymph waste and there will be build up of toxic residue in the body. That is trouble. That is toxicity in the system that cannot get out and just circulates. We call that the onset of chronic disease.
So exercise, or movement of energy, is necessary for regular health. And it is not just necessary for the body. Oh how the mind loves movement. It gets the chance to hatch ideas, dream, reflect and contemplate.
What constitutes movement of energy?
Walking, running, hiking, cycling, yoga, etc etc, you know the kind of things. Even breathing, deep diaphragmatic breathing can be a form of exercise. Rebounding is excellent.
But you have got do it often.
A little movement often is better than a lot every now and then.
It needs to become a habit, the same way not doing it has become a habit. Children do it naturally. You and I were children. We became lazy and distracted and forgot the joy of movement.
And here is my final point in this short call to movement.
Before you start you might have a lot of resistance. The mind is lazy and says ‘I don’t want to, it’s too hard, lets do it another day.’ and so on.
But if you persist, the reward is satisfaction and a warm body glow, and a sense of pride and achievement. Even if it’s small its there.
And you get to choose which feeling you want to respond to. The resistance or the possibility of satisfaction.
I know which I choose, and I do that over and over. And it has been hard for me to be motivated. But it works.
Yes of course when you are so out practice it is tough at first. But thats where your will, your desire, your determination and your warrior nature, kick in. You make it your business to keep going. One foot in the front of the other. Not just when yo feel like it.
Exercise is not something you do just when you feel like it. It is beyond that limited thinking.
Make it you business to find something that suits you. Experiment.
If you want support with motivation or you have any other issue you feel you need support with, get in touch.
I could help you change the course of your life.
I have this statement on my website:
The Body Is Always Pointing To Love
What does it mean and isn’t it a bit woohoo and weird?
And how can the body and love be connected?
And what happens if the body gets sick and dies?
What I am suggesting is that the body is a reflection of consciousness and personality. It stores all the stories we have had, all the dramas of our life, and all the things we could not process during our childhood, youth or adulthood.
And that includes all the times we moved away from love’s innocence because we were afraid.
Your body is the reason you are here in this world. If you didn’t have a body you wouldn’t be here. As consciousness you owe a lot to the body you have. It is probably the greatest miracle of high tech, biological, electrical engineering we could imagine. It is extraordinary in the extreme, but to reduce it to its chemical or biological, or even electrical components is something of an insult, because it is so much more than that.
The Indians first came up with the awareness of inner energy vortices inside the body that vibrate at different frequencies and have different purposes. They called them chakras. Chinese medicine has studied and used the inner energy system of the body for its acupuncture work for centuries, and so its not new information to be aware that the body has deep intelligence that we don’t really fully understand.
BUT…you are not the body. Well, in truth, you ARE the body and your are NOT the body. Ultimately you are consciousness. But while you are here in form you are intimately connected to your body.
And therein lies the word intimately. You as consciousness are intimately connected to your own body. But the body itself will perish and die. It will develop issues, get old, wear out. It will carry scars and wounds and let you down, and finally dissolve into the dust from which it came. Your body teaches you about who you really are.
And since who you really are is consciousness, which is unconditional love, it is fair to say that the body is always pointing you to love.
I would actually go one step further and say that life itself as we experience it, all experience and everything that manifests, is pointing us to love, the love that is our unconditional nature.
But we miss that because we are so full of our stories and our hurts and wounds and fears and resentments and grievances. We miss the best bit of being human. And what is that best bit?
The best bit is forgetting we are love itself and getting lost in the dream and the drama, and then waking up again and finding our way home and remembering our true nature.
That is the best bit. It’s worth all the effort of being lost.
But finding your way home to this exalted, yet utterly natural, state, can be tricky. It takes persistence, great humility, and warrior-like guts. And sometimes a guide to point the right direction.
I like to think I am one of those guides, a pointer in that direction.
My website: www.kavijezziehockaday.com
We are designed to channel LIGHT. That’s what we are, light beings.
That light should inform us on the cellular level, bringing information and life to each cell, complete with instructions for each of ours divine destiny.
The blueprint for our purpose here on Earth is contained in this light. Without it we are kinda lost.
Sure we can substitute this blueprint with our egoic games and assertions. That’s what happens to most people. And that’s what the world is composed of mostly, ego games.
This is not some new age woo woo idea here. I believe this theory will become evident truth in the years to come. It’s not lightweight information, it is hard core and deeply challenging, yet it really is HIGHLY INSPIRING. It opens up many new possibilities for healing, and brings hope where, often, there is none.
Without this light informing and guiding our hands life will be struggle. Welcome to the world of Samsara, of suffering.
So the question is, ‘How can we get this light into the cells and bring the ‘body spiritual’ back on line?’
That is what this ‘holistic practice’ is all about:
Bringing harmony where there is separation, holism where there is fragmentation
It takes work and effort.
And that certainly rules out most people. I am afraid to say that many people, even though they want this kind of experience, don’t want to work hard for it, don’t want to have to change too much for it, don’t want to go beyond their comfort zone for it.
But what I am talking about involves all the above, and more. Which means you must have a certain warrior tendency to contemplate it.
Is that you?
This is the big question.
Click the PICTURE to explore the book.
This book is a great introduction to new possibilities. I recommend it for information, inspiration and expanding possibilities. It is a timeless classic and is still relevant today. Buy it you will not regret it.
So what if we actually have it all wrong?
What if we are going about health, well being, the body, and even life itself, in the wrong way? What if our core understanding of how life happens, how we happen, what nourishes us, what affects us, is all wrong?
I am prepared to explore those possibilities, and in exploring them new ideas emerge. A whole new potential way of thinking and living arises. That is what we need so badly, hope and vision.
Maybe it is time for a complete overhaul of the old paradigm of beliefs.
Because beliefs define how we interact with the world – and our beliefs appear to define how the world responds.
So what can you and I really do to get this going, get more light streaming into our lives and into our cellular bodies?
1. Detox and Nourish the body – sounds simple right? Well its not that easy. The current western diets are all over the place. They are highly acidic and chemicalized. Getting back to basic is a good way to begin and keep going. That means eating fresh foods, made by God, not man. Mostly vegetables and fruits. Keep away from ma made products, they are the addictive and acidic ones. Nature is balanced mostly, and that is what is going to restore us to harmony.
That said focusing in on gut health is always going to help create and restore core well being and harmony.
2. Deal with hot and toxic emotions – sounds simple right? Well its not that easy? Most of us have lived lives that have forced us to push away difficult emotions. It is culturally acceptable to sweep things under the carpet, and that’s what we have all done. But it doesn’t work, it doesn’t create health and it has an impact on the body. Imagine what this means over the years, as we build up these stresses. Yikes.
3. Spend time in nature doing nothing – sounds simple right? Well its not that easy. Just do it, that is all. It works. Sit next to a tree. Walk barefoot on the sand, on the grass. Swim, paddle, lie down. It is hard to do nothing, but it works, it stills the mind and the immune system, and of course the nervous system.
4. Visualize and contemplate radiant light streaming in to your cellular body and lighting up your inner body. Give yourself to this process every day for 21 days and see what happens. See each cells welcoming the light and using it to eject the toxicity and blockages, and see those being carried effortlessly from your body. This really works and was something I developed as a practice when I was housebound and seriously suffering a few years ago.
If you start here things will begin to happen, because you are creating new habits, and new habits are what you need.
And of course if I can help in any way do let me know.
Thanks and stay healthy!

Our number one fundamental error when it comes to health and healing, wellbeing, illness and even our approach to the body itself, is this:
We assume all our answers are going to be found on the linear level of reality. We are so embedded in this causal reality with all its rules that we are unable to traverse the mysterious inner world where everything is interconnected and changeable, where matter and consciousness blend into the same thing and, ultimately, where there is no ‘real world,’ only consciousness.
When we allow ourselves to entertain new possibilities and new explorations, and we dive into the murky world of emotions, into the prison of conditioned thinking and beliefs, into our cultural conditioning itself, and even further into the nature of reality, we open the door to all kinds of awareness and insights, into a whole new vista of previously unexplored potential.
And that potential is packed with transformational energy. That potential is the potential of miracles and spontaneous healing.
Thats pretty much the only way we can access the doorway.
THINK BEYOND THE BOX.
Most people either don’t want to or simply can’t get far enough beyond the ‘in the box’ thinking for them to imagine other realities or possibilities. But that is really what we must do in order to transform or heal.
First you must imagine that it is possible. It must enter your world through the imagination. Imagination opens the door of possibility.
Then you have to explore and experience. You have to meet what you experience openly, and when there is contraction and judgement you must commit to surrendering it. It is a constant deepening, a voyage to the centre of life. A journey into the heart of darkness. The gifts are incalculable. Sometimes miraculous.
You must persist beyond your comfort zone and break out. Willingness itself makes this possible.
Sometimes you need someone to guide you and assist the journey.
Thats what I do.
My most important blog for a while – Christmas Special!
It is easy, given the global intensity and upheaval in all walks of life, to lose heart and let your spirit drop. It seems that the world is going under and we are sliding into increasing chaos, violence, bigotry and war. We have seen this fall into chaos happening in other countries, due to the toppling of governments and regime changes, and because of financial debts in some countries.
There is an ever growing fear and terrorism is feeding on it. And the governments are feeding on it. We are living in such inequality it beggars belief, and we have now entered the era of lies, false media, overt manipulation of opinion and total government deceit.
No one knows who to believe, what to believe or what to do. It is a time of great vulnerability and is a deep challenge to each and everyone of us who wants to live in peace, and those of us who are sensitive and open to all this change.
I meet many people, and since we arrived in California just three months ago I have had the opportunity to really feel what is happening in this part of the world, and it is the same here. There is such an inner sense of the ground being pulled out and shaken it is undermining. Of course in most of our western societies ‘normal life’ continues. The global upheaval has not yet hit most people in their daily lives. When (and if) that day happens things are going to shift rapidly and radically. Probable chaos. But that is just speculation. Meanwhile.
What does that all mean for you who aspires to spiritual, and holistic, well being?
What does it mean to be getting sucked into fear and anxiety?
How do you surf it, and at what point do you descend into a panic? Or do you ever?
Is there a away of using the events of this life to support and deepen your spiritual depth and wisdom?
Is there a way of being in the world fully without getting drawn into the madness of division and separation?
Is there a possibility of being useful to the world, useful to other beings, human and animal, useful to the environment, during this epic shift of energies?
I believe there is. Being the calm at the centre of the storm, the silent ‘eye at the centre,’ could be the most useful and healing thing way you could contribute right now. Sure activism happens when needed, campaigning, taking to the streets is great and right, but when this activity comes from the silence of being, from the calmness at the epicentre, from the rock of peacefulness, it has real power exponentially greater than the superficial power of ego mania that rules planet earth.
Social activism is really powerful and may create lasting change only when it is not driven by a divided self. We are looking for greater change than this. We are looking for evolutionary change. And that change is not only on the outside. That change is primarily on the inside of Man, and that means on the inside of each of us. It is change in consciousness.
There is one primary piece of knowing that drives this argument.
The outer world is a manifestation of our inner world.
There are so many ways to understand that line, but each of them points to the same thing. We have a power of manifestation that is significantly greater than the superficial power we usually believe is the only one.
When we are fully aligned to our true authentic nature as divine consciousness, in other words, when we awaken to our true nature, it creates an extraordinary power.
When that power is magnified thousands of times in other awakened human beings transformation of global consciousness will become an inevitability. And with that shift in collective consciousness comes outer change.We see this by the power of group meditation. When groups of individuals gather to meditate together something happens in the environment that surrounds them. Not just their direct environment, but in the neighbourhood outside that. Crime rates go down, which means that people themselves are relaxing and letting go of stress. It means there is a shift towards peacefulness.
And that effect is just with meditation. Imagine if this is compounded by a living experience of awakening, not a theory or a belief, but actually living awakening. It could be extraordinary.
AWAKENING IS THE ONY THING THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.
And the first person to start is you! Your world is your only concern and responsibility. In fact your world IS the only world you can ever know. When you die the world dies with you. We imagine and think we are all living in the same world, but upon deep inspection is that true?
It would appear that we live in different worlds that interweave and overlap with each others. They are all part of the same tapestry but they have different threads and weaves. One tapestry many threads.
That truth need not put us off taking action when necessary, but it frames that action and grounds it in a deeper truth.
Taking responsibility for your world and awakening to the truth beyond beliefs and conditioning fundamentally changes perception and relationship with the apparent outside world.
In fact it changes the world altogether.
And that creates you a new as a Powerhouse of Change.
The current intensity of the outer world is the grit, the driver, for your awakening. It’s not just something thats come along as a distraction or inconvenience to your spiritual practice.
It IS your spiritual practice!
The world is all but screaming at each of us,’Who Are You!,’ What Do You Believe?”What Is Your Truth?’ and it demands that we look inside ourselves and remember wisdom, love, truth, respect, compassion and right action. In that sense the world is inviting us back to the Garden of Innocence we left as Adam and Eve. Think of that story as truth or metaphor, it still works.
We were innocent and natural. We fell to ego desires and identification with the body, became attached to all things of the flesh, forgot we were all connected as One, and began believing ourselves to be more important than each other.
We became lost in the wilderness and forgot our truth and the truth of each other. We have been lost and wandering. And now there is an invitation to come home, wiser and less naive, grounded in experience and wisdom. It is time for our epic return home as the living embodiment of truth and human experience. We are wise enough to return now.
That, my friend, is your only task. It is a mythic spiritual journey home. That is the invitation the world offers you.
DO NOT LOSE HOPE OR GIVE UP NOW.
Thanks for reading!
Purpose and Health.
They might sound like they are completely different areas of life, purpose and health. Unless of course you are health coach or a naturopath or something. But what about the rest of us? Surely purpose and wellbeing don’t really relate to each other?
But oh yes they do! I have just been on a coaching call with a client and we delved into this area somewhat and it led me to thinking. So here I am to share this insight with you in a little blog. It also relates to what I am always saying about the immune system health or dis-ease (see recent blogs)
My thinking around this is that we are here primarily as spiritual entities manifesting as human beings to do three things:
1. Serve others
2. Learn something about ourselves
3. Remember love
Fulfilling your purpose, whatever that may be, is part of your soul’s calling, because it connects your very human experience with your very divine spiritual nature.
Your job is to connect those two together, divine and human, and remove and dissolve those things that block this flow of divine energy. Invariably that means dealing with emotions and conditioning.
In other words, in your own unique way, you are here to bring heaven down to earth. That is your highest purpose.
Your lowest purpose is to remain unconscious and serve ego identification.
God, or divine intelligence, has got no investment in either one of these, because you are loved equally and unconditionally anyway. It matters to you in the sense that if you are only serving your lowest purpose you will suffer, and cause suffering.
My own sense is that eventually everyone wakes up. It may take thousands and thousands of lifetimes, I have no idea. What I do know is you can choose now, today, in this life, to serve your divine purpose.
It is this flow of divine energy from highest to lowest, and from lowest to highest, that brings the greatest transformation to you and to the world.
Purpose floods the cells of the body with energy and goodness. It nourishes and feeds the energy system.
Now here is the nitty gritty. Blocking your purpose, turning away from it, pretending you don’t know what it is, or over identification with small ego self, is a life force killer. It is going to sap your energy because you are blocking its natural flow.
WE ARE ENERGY BEINGS.
When you block the natural flow of (divine) energy you have to borrow the energy from somewhere.
Why? Because we are energy beings. We need to find energy from somewhere. Those who radiate purpose, who are on fire with their mission, tend to get their energy direct from source without the need for converting it. It might be that they are almost plugged in direct. They eat little and have tons of natural energy.
Everyone else, and this means most of humanity, must get their energy via something else, namely food and drink.
All this is about frequency and vibration. The lower your vibration and frequency, the more stuck in ego identity you are, and that means the more prone you are to addictions, weight problems, toxic foods, negative relationships etc. These things give you energy, but it is very poor, low grade energy. And it slowly drains you and kills you.
Dense energy = dense relationship with food. The need for heavy foodstuffs.
Light energy = light relationship and little need of dense food. Higher vibration foods suffice.
It’s like blocking a river from flowing. Water builds up, water stagnates, water becomes mouldy, mould attracts disease.
So what is all this purpose? And what to do if you really don’t know what your purpose is? Do you spend your whole life hunting it, dissatisfied with life until you find it?
Well maybe. But there is something you can do right now.
You can start living everyday from a deeper place. You can take conscious awareness everywhere you go. You can walk with awareness and truth. You can look deeper inside yourself and find where you are not living authentically, and resolve to change that. You can look into where you hide from yourself and others. You can see where you might turn away from invitations to ‘step up’ and shine. You can speak from the heart. You can try things you have never done. You can love more and fear less. And you can help others in whatever way you feel moved.
That is all purpose is anyway.
And once that happens, it moves energy and starts feeding you, and then you feel energised and inspired, and you start feeding it. And maybe you will get some intuitive flash of insight. Maybe someone will say something that sets off your dream body. Whatever it is, you will be more available for it. Thats the thing, to become more available by opening your self up, even if you don’t know where to go and what to do.
It’s not about doing, its about being.
I hope you have enjoyed this blog, I sure have enjoyed writing it..Please feel free to comment and share..
