I talk a lot about our souls/spirits and higher consciousness, but I haven’t talked very much about our bodies, our vehicles for this journey, and without them we cannot proceed. Are we tending our bodies well? Are we listening to the messages we receive from them? Have you realized yet that whatever physical ailments you are dealing with are nothing more than messages from your body to get you to pay attention to an issue you are avoiding dealing with. How else can our bodies talk to us and grab our attention? Most of us don’t interact with our bodies on a spiritual level unless we are meditating or exercising or just being still and quiet so you can listen. If we are dealing with medical issues most likely we have not heard the issues we are being asked to deal with by our body & spirit. There is a wonderful book called The Bodymind Workbook by Debbie Shapiro that addresses this issue. She has taken all the body parts and connected them with the messages behind each ailment. For example: Problems with legs relate to problems of grounding, moving forward in our lives, they represent the direction we are taking in our lives, our foundation. If we are not moving forward, if we are stalled, if we are not going in the direction our hearts wish to go in life, we encounter issues with legs, feet etc. If we listen to our bodies we can eventually see the areas we need to address in order to move on. The same goes for all of life. Are we listening to the environment crying out? Are we hearing what the animals are telling us? Listening is a huge part of how well we function in our lives. Many are great at talking, directing, suggesting, but are they listening as well? There is a true art to listening, one must learn and practice to become good at it concerning all areas of our lives, not just our health. So, lesson one: clean your ears and start listening to life around you.
I always find it amazing at how the medical world and insurance companies consider us parts and pieces, not a whole. Why does health insurance cover the body in one policy and teeth or in many areas the mind in another policy? They are all parts of the same body. Why do we accept all of this insanity? I keep asking that again and again, I guess perhaps hoping someone reading will have a lightbulb go off and realize they need to question life as well. Why must we pay extra for our minds and teeth? The way the darkness conquers is by dividing even down to dividing our bodies into parts so we lose connection to our whole. Games. They play lots of games and will continue to do so until we stand up and fight back, demand that we are whole and will be treated accordingly! So recognize the importance of your body for it is, your vehicle while you are here on earth. You take your car in for tune ups and repairs on a regular basis. How many of you do so for your body or do you blow it off because you are feeling okay? We only have this one vehicle while we are here so we best take good care of it and listen. I hope you eat healthy, eat organic if you can (make it a priority) and exercise, hopefully in nature where your spirit gets exercise as well. Just take good care of yourself in all ways. Love yourself in body, mind and spirit.
Blessings to you all,
