Befriending Your Body

Hello All.  Thought I'd give you a sneak peek at my article for June's Tone Magazine.

Have you ever felt like you didn’t want to be in your body?  I know many spiritual-minded people can often feel this way, drawn more to the spiritual than the physical.  I myself felt that way for a while too.  Sorry to be the one to tell you, but it’s a package deal that works best together. 

Don’t despair, a body’s actually a good thing, and believe it or not, it can help you out in many ways.  To start with, your eternal spirit came here for the adventure of being a human, with all its rollercoaster thrills and spills.  It’s time to enjoy the ride.

As well, the body is actually sending you signals all of the time.  It’s trying to tell you what is and isn’t good for it.  It naturally wants to be in a perfect, healthy state.  Trouble is, we haven’t learned how to listen to it.  So when the body’s subtle signals are ignored, it has to send progressively stronger ones until we listen.  Have you been the so-called victim of your body “taking you out” in order to get you to pay attention to it?  Learning how to listen to your body is a vital tool for, wait for it… your vitality!

Another useful tool your body provides is muscle testing.  It’s very wise.  I use it all the time to find out if something is in my highest good or not.

As you can start to see, not accepting, claiming and loving your body can actually be a deterrent to the very spiritual development you so seek.  Being grounded, which is probably the most important aspect and foundation, is likely something you’d avoid or have trouble doing.  Not only does being ungrounded keep you from your full power and feeling strong and secure, it leaves you vulnerable to unsupportive energies.  Grounding is especially important if you work directly with clients, as you’re otherwise likely to take on their stuff.

Again, writing this article has inspired me to give a workshop.  I’ll teach you how to get grounded, tune in to what your body’s telling you and the valuable tool of muscle testing.  Please contact me to get on the notification list for when the workshop will take place.

And, as always, I am available for energy healing to help you resolve and clear the blocks that have already accumulated.

  1. Okay, seems not to have made it in to the actual magazine. Perhaps the revised version will be in the July magazine.
