We are capable of more:
The body has wise counsel to give us if we would only still ourselves and listen. A mind filled with clutter and inner conflict makes inner listening very difficult and in some cases impossible. Repressed emotions add to this inner conflict and to a great degree are the very cause of it.
Sooner or later the physical body holds what the emotional body can no longer hold. Everything we ignore, attempt to suppress and successfully repress for a time, will eventually finds its way into the physical body. Symptoms provide clues to teach us the true cause for disease or injury.
If we would stop suppressing or ignoring the warnings or symptoms but instead began to listen and release the “cause,” disease would not come into full expression.
If it has already come into full expression then releasing the “cause” will bring about healing. Transformation and healing are one and the same. When we reclaim the power to transform our energy we heal ourselves. The agent of the healing is love, self-acceptance and a belief that all we need to heal ourselves is within us.
Find the wounded consciousness associated with the symptoms or break down of the body and you are well on your way to a life long intimate relationship with your inner healer and a healthy lifestyle.
Connect to the healing power within:
Connecting to the healing power within involves learning how to listen to your body. Notice more. Turn toward that which you have previously chosen to ignore. This naturally begins the process of evolving your ability to listen to the body.
With a healthy dose of self-love and acceptance you will be able to dissolve inner conflict enough to hear what needs to be heard. Pushing inner conflict down or away does not rid you of it. That is the path of denial. Give the conflict your attention with intent to understand it and be free.
This is not about being right or wrong or involving yourself in an energy draining mental tug of war. It is about understanding the cause, releasing the repressed energy and letting go of everything including the “story”. Once released, your energy can be put to better use creating a peaceful foundation that inspires health and happiness.
Pain whether it is mental or emotional such as depression and anxiety or physical is a signal that lets you know your attention is required. Here are a few things it may be trying to tell you:
A) There is a lack of readiness for an upcoming experience, which would be a warning. Perhaps choosing to do something because you feel you are expected to, are afraid to say no, or believe you have ” no choice.”
B) There is resistance to an experience your soul is longing to have. Perhaps investing in the fear of failure or fear of rejection with no energy left to follow your dreams and desires.
C) There is a lack of acceptance for an experience that has occurred. The experience has been denied.
D) The body is alerting you of an imbalance that if ignored could result in injury or disease.
Bring your attention to the warning signals and ask yourself some important questions? Am I ready for this experience? Do I even want this experience? Am I resisting an experience by investing my energy in fear rather than happiness? Am I ready to make changes? What does my body need? What will assist me in bringing peace to my mind and health to my body? What shadow is attempting to move into the light of my consciousness?
These are just a few examples to get you started. Other questions specific to you will rise up. Ask the questions, then quiet yourself and wait for the answer. When you receive answers in the form of inspired thoughts, ideas, or flashes of insight follow through with action. This is empowering. Action paves the way for self–reliance, self-love and confidence all of which have a positive effect on the health of your body, mind, spirit and soul.
