Do You Have Faith In Your Body?Oct 07, 2021
My stomach was unwell, my joints hurt, my skin was itchy, I had frequent headaches and couldn’t sleep. I lost faith in my body.
I searched endlessly online for solutions, for knowledge, for practitioners who could help me ‘find the right answer.’ This day-to-day existence was stressful, full of despair, and felt completely out of my control.
Where were the answers I sought? There had to be answers…and if I looked long enough, I knew I could find them…
In this time of my life, I felt my body was broken, that something was wrong with it (lots of things!). It didn’t work right and didn’t seem to know how to get better. Have you ever felt this way?
Did you know your body has intelligence?
Did you know it is always seeking wellness?
This was a truth I didn’t know at the time: When the body isn’t able to get well, it doesn’t mean it’s broken. It just means something is in the way, blocking health.
What gets in the way? All kinds of stresses can derail our body’s normal healthy function.
Physical stresses like toxins, infections and illnesses can hamper the body. They can confuse the immune system, block receptors, cause our body to be depleted. They can provide a chronic low-grade stress that keeps our body’s functions stifled and not at peak efficiency. As these stresses continue and accumulate, they start to deplete our reserves and create a cycle of imbalance.
We all know how a bad day can derail us. It can upset our digestion, our sleep, our ability to feel calm and balanced. Emotions flow through the body with chemical signals called neuropeptides and neurotransmitters. These chemicals are real, physical substances! And indeed, they are created, increased or suppressed by different emotions we feel. So yes, emotions result in physical changes in the body. If these emotional chemicals don’t have a way to get processed in the moment, they might be stored in the body. And this starts creating stress, again keeping our body’s functions stifled and not at 100% efficiency.
“Our thoughts create our reality,” have you heard this? How can that be? Well, first, our experiences are filtered through our five senses. We see, hear, taste, smell and touch our environment and the events in our lives.
If we feel unsafe or feel the world is out to get us, for example, we will filter our experiences through those filters on our senses. In this way, we will perceive that which we expect. Whoa! That means we can create what we do not want. Do you see how much creative power we have?!
The problem is this. We can’t just ignore the filters we don’t like. Denial doesn’t work. Trust me, I’ve tried it! We have to first remove the filters. Then we will be freed to focus on what we want, allowing us to more clearly perceive the world around us.
We have tremendous creative power. When we are focused on illness or what is wrong with us, it means we create more of that. Let’s ditch these filters ASAP and welcome what we desire!
Food for thought: in your own life, how can you authentically align with feeling healthy and strong? If you can nurture this, remind yourself of this, this will serve your efforts to embrace health.
Tip: An affirmation can be a great way to do this. Such as “My body is strong and vital. It moves into vital health every single day.”
Back to our innate wisdom.
All we need to do is lift off stresses that keep our bodies stuck. And luckily we have easy, non-invasive ways of doing this: energy healing! Energy healing is amazingly powerful with a practitioner but that is certainly not the only way. Healing can happen in prayer, meditation, while hiking outside, while connecting to yourself and your guidance system in whatever way feels right to you. If your chosen method isn’t moving all the blocks, it’s time to seek a next step to get your energy moving.
As we lift off the blocks and stresses keeping the body stuck, suddenly processes that were kept suppressed can repair and reset. And now your innate wisdom is reconnected, unburdened. Remember it always knows how. Your body is moving toward wellness. This is indeed a wonderful place to be.
