My Top 5 things to do upon awakening to positively start my day
This had to be one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard. Right up there with talking to your plants right? Who talks to plants? So, I took myself down the “what if” road. What if, upon awakening, I took 20 minutes to feed positive thoughts and directions to my cells? Not to even look at my cell phone, but to myself on a cellular level? In this blog I want to discuss the possibility of talking to my cells, my research with it, my personal experience and what talking to my cells looks like.
How is talking to my cells even possible?
The poet Rumi was quoted as saying, “Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment”. I had a lot of selling to do in order to buy this possibility. It was a small jump initially which began with talking to plants. It’s possible right that they hear? The next leap was the memory of talking to my dog Ghost. Did he listen to me yes? Of course, he heard me. So saying a few words to my cells isn’t too much of a stretch right? What if my cells could actually hear me? It’s possible right. To be sure either way, I needed more information. So, off I went.
What did I find?
What I have always known about the human body is that it is made up of 2/3rds water. Years ago, I came across a study conducted by Dr. Masaru Emoto, the Japanese scientist who revolutionized the idea that our thoughts and intentions impact the physical realm. He is one of the most important water researchers the world has known. His test on the effects that music has on molecules of water opened me up to more possibilities. I then discovered Dr. Dick Gregorys’ approach to healing when he was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer in 1999. It was about how he spoke to his 37–70 trillion cells. Listening to Dick Gregory exposed me to Mr. Les Brown. I then became an avid listener of him. I also found out that Les Brown was a cancer survivor. When Les Brown was diagnosed and given a limited prognosis, he didn’t just go back home and “anticipate” his death. Nope. He FIRST spent time motivating himself with the reality that he’s still alive. And when one is still alive, one can fight. And fight he did.
I later uncovered the works of Dr. Sebi. This researcher and healer devoted his life to learning how to heal himself first. Then sharing with others what he had learned.
The more I researched this subject of cellular/molecular conversations to create change the more evidence I found to support that it is possible.
My own experience
I flashed back to the 10 DAY Vipassana silent retreat that I attended in Bali, Indonesia back in 2013. I thought Vipassana was just about sitting in silence for the next 10 days of fasting. 3 days later I found out that it was much more than that. We actually went into the process of healing ourselves from the cellular/molecular level. I remember the daily chanting in stillness while sitting in the lotus position. I most recall the disturbances that bubbled forth from under my skin to the surface of my skin only to disappear the next day without a trace. These disturbances were described as unresolved past trauma. We went to work on that trauma for the next 7 days. The most amazing 7 days of my life.
My Top 5 “Upon awakening” acts.

3 Prayer/connecting with the universe.
4 Motivational audio sessions (Listening to metaphysical healers)
5 Positive affirmations
When is the best time to talk to my cells?
I have been practicing taking the first 20 minutes of my morning. It is said that the first 20 minutes of the day, your day, is when the brain is functioning at its highest capacity. Everyone raves that waking up early and sticking to your routine will help you get more done. But whether you get out of bed at 5 a.m. or 3 p.m., it’s the first 20 minutes of your day that can set you up for amazing success.
What does all this mean?
Getting back to Rumi, letting go of the intellectual, rational mind, sacrificing our calculated approach to everything that we do, we deal with and life. Buy bewilderment. Go inside of oneself and learn to live life fully while being open to life’s fullest (unknown yet flowering) potentials as well.
In short, it means that when I am truly open, everything is possible.
Now, if you knew your cells were listening, what would you say to them?
