Our bodies are truly amazing and by tuning into our bodies it can help us in so many ways. Our bodies are energy, parts of which regenerate continually so our body is not the same one we had a year ago.
According to Deepak Chopra how we live and relate to our bodies is based on our underlying beliefs about it. Your body has unlimited potential and when you choose to consciously change your assumptions about it then change is manifested through our physical being. Every day we can be exposed to a range of energy from others and the environment we inhabit. Everything within our environment has an unseen energy that impacts upon our wellbeing and health.
By tuning into our bodies we are given a range of information that can support balance and harmony within.
An exercise that I have used many times with students both within Reiki and Neuro-lingusitic programming (NLP), is to stand still and ask your body to show you what “yes” is. Notice how your body moves and in which direction. Then do the same and ask your body to show” no” and again notice how it moves.
Once you have established how your body reacts to these responses you can then ask it many things. If you want to know whether a certain food is good for you, hold the food or a picture of it in your hand and ask your body “do I need this food today?” and be aware of the yes or no response. This is your body’s answer to go with or ignore! I use it to ask which crystals I would benefit from that day. You may notice that the body stays still and that can relate to a maybe or it doesn’t matter response.
For placing items, ornaments, pictures around the home hold the item and ask if it is best placed in the south, west, east or north direction.
Ideally ask the body a question that has a yes or no answer and then be guided by the response.
Our gut instinct, the energy within, the communication of our bodies is a wonderfully gift that we all have the ability to pay attention to and appreciate.
So why not make the most of our truly wonderfully physical being and engage in subtle communication to bring harmony and wellbeing into our lives.
