You never know yourself till you know more than your body.~Thomas Traherne
Doug and I have been sharing exercises to help get in touch with your inner self… To integrate all aspects of you. We’ve been using our imaginations to connect with different levels of our consciousness and to get a better feeling for what we actually are.
This next exercise is sort of a diagnostic exam… We’ll use it to sense if there are problems within our spirit body that may be affecting our physical selves. Many problems manifest in our bodies as physical problems but are actually problems that started in our spirit bodies…
I just did a quick check in with myself while writing this post.
With my eyes shut, I sensed the boundaries of my spirit body… I relaxed and felt the limits.
Stepping outside of myself, I sensed the color… It’s a pale yellow, as usual. There seems to be a weakness down near my feet… I’m not extending downwards.
I expand the area in my mind, visualizing and feeling my energy flowing to the weakened area.
Looking over my spirit body, I see some dark areas around my shoulders. I wipe it away and flood the area with fresh energy, and imagine the shoulder area to be brighter…My shoulders have been feeling sore this morning.
This is a quick checkup that can be performed at any time… During breaks at work, when waking up in the morning or when going to bed at night. You may not believe in the energy body as something real, and that’s OK. We’re using our imaginations, remember? But the benefits of being in tune with your body, of examining it with all your senses and imagination, are real…
Look yourself over. What do you see and feel? Is everything uniform and “clean” looking and feeling?
Are there areas of your body that seem to be missing energy, or look dense or muddy? If so, imagine more energy flowing to these parts. Brighten them up.
Are parts of your spirit body pulled in, or maybe extending too far out? If so, try to expand or contract as needed… We’re aiming for a uniform spirit body. If you feel inspired, you can shape your spirit body with your hands, like you’re working with clay.
I’m an artist so this is a natural way for me to maintain my energy. Rub, pat, pull and massage the weak areas you sense…
Get To Know Yourself
This exercise can be done quickly throughout the day. The main benefit from doing this is taking a couple minutes to concentrate on how your body feels… Much of our life is lived on autopilot and we lose touch with ourselves.
Doing this exercise relieves stress and anxiety… And, it just might help you fix issues before they become real problems…
