When I started out on my metaphysical journey, I was introduced to Louise L Hay, and her concept of “dis-ease” being related to the mind/body connection. Areas in your life that are not “healthy” will reflect in specific areas of your body and, believe it or not, in your possessions too, for example, your car. Your brakes spongy? What are you having trouble stopping in your life? Engine trouble? Are you heading off to somewhere or something that does not fulfill you – do you really want to go?
I have written before, of how we come to this earthly realm with all the support and tools that we need to grow our souls. The challenge is to recognize and use them. Through our meditations and intuition we can connect to our guides and Higher Self. By being alert, we can learn to recognize the signs and signals sent by our bodies and surroundings.
How often do you get a cold following a stressful time in your life? This is your body’s way of letting you know that it is time to rest and take care of yourself. Lost your voice? What are you not speaking? Pain? What is “hurting” you emotionally? Stiff? What are you being inflexible about? Projecting anger at someone, yet it is your stomach that is upset. You get the picture….
I am a Sagittarius, always bumping into things, always discovering bruises that I have no idea where they have come from. Things always escalate when I find myself in a period of inattention. During my darkest, emotionally taxing days, my adrenal system signaled my distress and literally crippled my body to the point of having to use a cane for support. I was living in denial of what was happening to me, unable to move forward freely. I had no idea how strong the mind/body connection was. Once I started to change my life, my body started to respond and the healing began.
Why do I always seem to injure myself when doing a good deed? This has perplexed me to no end… I pick up a piece of someones carpet tacking that has been left behind by the garbage man and prick myself with the nails. I hold an unruly dog for someone and get scratched by it. I realized I was being shown that I need to be more aware of myself when tending to the needs of others – a caregiver personality’s hardest lesson.
When we take the time to stop and observe our daily activities we can learn so much about ourselves, on levels we never thought of before.
I have the honor to practice spiritual healing and have also been the recipient of this wonderful energetic force. Prior to healing sessions, a prayer is offered to open the channels between the spiritual healing forces and the recipient. This prayer sets the intent for the healer, the Spirit Realm, and the recipient to be open and receptive to the healing energies. As humans, we can easily block helpful energies, if we do not feel worthy of receiving them, especially on a subconscious level.
The mind/body connection is potent and one to be respected. Do yourself a favor and set time aside to observe yourself and your surroundings to see how you truly “feel.” The sooner you recognize what needs fixing, the better. Be well.
