“Many medical intuitives believe the initial stage of illness develops outside the body and filters down through the layers of the energy. Each layer is associated with an aspect of consciousness (e.g. instinct, intellect, intuition, emotions) Each layer of consciousness in the human energy field is considered a harmonic vibration. Like keys on a piano keyboard, the frequency of the body’s vibration and those of the emotional, mental and spiritual fields are set at different octaves yet are within the harmonic range of each other. If a thought coupled with an emotion is left unresolved, it can cause an imbalance within the layers of energy in the body.” Brian Luke Seaward, Achieving the mind-body-spirit connection.
We are now reaching a new level of consciousness that is forcing us to look at reality and, to feel things about it. We are discovering that emotion is a largely unexplored dimension of our lives. We are learning that when we feel something deeply enough, we can bring it to life, give it form and substance, and prosper from it in ways we’ve never dreamed before. We are learning that our main responsibility lies in learning how to listen to the body and to its reactions.
Confronting our beliefs, doubts, confusion and emotions/feelings, is an important step in our journey towards wholeness. With this realization comes the hope, strength and opportunity to step forward and create ourselves anew. Healing is all about participating in our own process. We all have body/medical intuition, it’s just developing the framework to help us understand what it means. It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, the body knows what to do, it has a tremendous capacity to repair and heal. All that’s required is your commitment and motivation to heal.
All different kinds of illness whether their aches or pains, chronic illness, or even illnesses that are life threatening are teaching and showing us that something we are doing, thinking, or saying or acting on, is comprising who we truly are. What illness is really trying to tell you is STOP! STOP and look at where you are! Stop and look at the quality of your thoughts and beliefs. Are they in alignment with who you are and are they driven by the intentions of the heart and soul?
Thoughts have energy, emotions have energy and your beliefs have energy. If there’s something you’re feeling guilty about or wish you hadn’t done, you’re unknowingly beating yourself up and this can overtime, manifest in some form of energy congestion and then ultimately land somewhere in the body. The whole process of our human existence is to create thought that is reflective of our own individuality, authenticity, and truth. It is not about trying to live by someone else’s thoughts and beliefs. If we eat ourselves up or talk poorly to ourselves or allow childhood wounds and traumas to run our life, ultimately these will show up in the physical body.
Everything that affects you must first pass through your aura and then through the chakras or wheels of energy that surround and interpenetrate your physical body. Chakras literally mean ‘wheels of fire’. They appear to the psychic as rapidly turning pools of light. Though not actually in the physical body the main 7 chakras are radiated from the spinal region, each flaring at the front of the body like great flowering trumpets. Information received through the aura and chakras enters into your awareness through your senses thoughts and intuition. These centers are constantly recording and downloading your emotional experiences. So the aura and the body are in constant communication with one another.
Few of us understand what our body is feeling at any given moment. Tension, pain, illness, hiccups and goosebumps are all bodily words. When we feel these bodily sensations, we usually ignore them or take a pill and carry on with what we were doing….unaware that these bodily signals are our teacher and guidance system.
“The inability to talk about emotions that you feel intensely will usually get transformed into a symbolic language of symptoms and eventual illness in the body.” Mona Lisa Schulz
Physical symptoms are never the first signs of illness, but the last…they can sound/feel similar to the whining of a tired and irritable child…these are your body’s cries of distress…something you can’t ignore. But remarkable things can happen if you can get beyond the irritating demand for attention and reach out to the wounded child underneath, who so desperately needs your understanding and unconditional love.
The following exercises are designed to initiate a dialogue with one’s body. Hearing what the body is trying to tell you requires great patience and practice. The intention is not to make your pain go away. Pain as mentioned, is actually your body’s guidance system ‘showing’ you a situation that needs to be taken care of. When we acknowledge pain, it can be transformational, creating new attitudes towards ourselves and others, increasing our spiritual understanding, deepening the feeling side of life, producing changes in our relationships, our careers and even society itself.
The seventeenth-century philosopher Spinoza once wrote: “Suffering ceases to be suffering as soon as we have formed a clear and precise picture of it.” When we shed light on our emotions, energy floods into the body allowing us to review things.
ENERGY CLEANSING OF THE PHYSICAL AND SUBTLE BODIES
As you lie in bed, before you go to sleep, take time to feel your physical body. How does it feel? Are there any parts that you are particularly aware of? Are these parts still connected with any events of your day?
Take time to feel your emotional body. Are there any feelings in it that disturb you? How are they connected in the events of the day? Be aware of what you need to learn, so that these emotions can be released.
Take time to feel your mental body. Are there any thoughts running through your mind that are connected with the events of your day? Finish them and let them go…..good night and pleasant dreams.
DIALOGUE WITH YOUR BODY ABOUT ILLNESS AND HEALTH
(It’s probably best to read this over, make it your own and tape with your own voice…you may want to have a pad of paper and pen close by during or after the meditation)
Let your body relax and sink into the chair you are sitting on….letting your eyes close or keeping them focused on one particular spot in order not to be distracted by anything going on outside you….letting the sound of your voice guide you gently into the center of your inner being….attuning yourself to the world within….becoming aware of your breathing as the natural rhythm of your body…breathing in…and breathing out…moving ever deeper to the center of your being…listening to the voice of your body….letting all the voices that have been demanding your attention fade into the background until they are no more than distant echoes. (Pause for 20 seconds).
As you move more and more deeply into the region of your inner self, become aware of seeing your body from within rather than without….like when you look in a mirror. As you become aware of your body within, pay attention to your breathing, breathing in and out in a natural regular rhythm. Your breathing is you. Feel a unity with your breathing. Feel a unity with your body. (Pause for 30 seconds)
Feel the solidness beneath you for miles and miles. Shift your attention to the top of your head….Sense with your head the space between you and the ceiling to the infinite edge of the universe. Come back now to the room and notice the space around you…the forms, the colors the people. Pay attention now to the sounds around you, the sounds outside. Now pay attention to the sounds within you…sense your heart beating. (Pause for 30 seconds)
Now move your attention throughout your body, checking your sensations all through your body beginning with the top of your head. Notice first your scalp, the feeling of your hair on your head. Now pay attention to your forehead; experience any tension there. Focus on your eyelids against your eyes, your nose, your tongue, your lips, your neck, the back of your neck, right shoulder, left shoulder, your back against the chair. Notice the sensations in your chest, your breast, your stomach, your lower back, your hips, your genitals, your thighs, your knees, your calves, the feel of your feet on the floor, your right arm, your left arm, you hands in your lap….(Pause for 30 seconds)
Now move your attention through your body at your own pace. Stop and pay attention to any place where there is special tension or discomfort or lack of ease. Focus on the sensation in this special place or places in your body. Hold your attention there. Hold. (Pause for 30 seconds)
Now become the sensation in that part of your body. Identify yourself with it. Amplify it. If it is tense, allow it to feel even more tense. If there is an ache, let the ache increase. You want to hear the body’s message loud and clear. Amplify it; experience it clearly and unmistakably. (Pause for 1 minute)
This sensation is your friend and it’s telling you something. Now put some questions to it. It may not answer verbally. Perhaps when you question the sensation, some images will come to mind, and you’ll have a feeling related to the sensation, or it will connect with something in your life, our you’ll have an intuition. (Pause for 1 minute)
Now get into that sensation and ask: Why are you feeling like this? What’s your concern? What’s on your mind? If I changed something in my life, would you change your tune? (Pause for 2 minutes)
Amplify the sensation again. And beware of images that come to mind or connections and feelings related to your life and experience. Amplify and have your radar out for the over-tones and what your body is telling you. (Pause for 1 minute)
Again, direction your attention methodically to the sensations throughout your body from head to toe, until again your attention is stopped by a special sensation that summons your detailed attention to the message your body is sending you. Don’t try to force anything, just be aware of what is there. (Pause for 1 minute) Is there anything that surprises you? Listen to what your body needs from you in the future…let the dialogue flow freely.
When you are finished, take a deep breath, relax your focus and when ready, come back to the room you are in and slowly, gently open your eyes. You may want to write what you saw or heard or felt …letting your pen simply record what is there without censoring or interpreting.
*Pain is your friendly messenger bringing you very important news about your life situation. The goal of this exercise is to magnify the voice of that friend so that you truly hear it, and so that it won’t have to shout even louder to get your attention.
