From time to time, I tend to include posts tied to spirituality. Connecting within, with your soul, spirit, inner guide – whatever you want to call it – is important for a few reasons. The outer body is a reflection of what is going on inside. Whether you are carrying around excess weight, have skin problems, constantly find yourself sick, or wake up to a tired looking face in the morning everyday, these are all reflections of inner needs that are not being met. These are signs that tell you that attention needs to be placed on an inner connection with yourself. Your soul or spirit is there to guide you – in all aspects of life, including your health. If you take care of it by listening, meditating, observing it’s signals, etc., it will take care of you, including your body. I was once told to see my body as the garden of my soul, as sacred, and to honor it. It’s actually miraculous – just think of the work it does for you… Also think of the negative commments and the ”bad” food you stuff it with on a daily basis, and STILL it keeps going, constantly trying to balance despite the way you treat it. We have to learn to truly love our bodies, because when we do, and treat it with respect, it will naturally land at it’s perfect weight. It will naturally restore it’s glow. It will become vibrant and healthy with ease.
So try this today. Sit in silence, focus your attention within, call upon your inner spirit, and simply connect with it. Feel the energy from within, feel your body parts from within – for example focus your attention on your heart, your hands, your stomach, and continue to do so for every part. It helps to play a piece of beautiful music while you do so. I recommd downloading tracks from Adam Plack & Deepak Chopra. It also helps to light a candle in honor of this moment.
I will focus on this more, but let’s take it step by step. 🙂 Have a beautiful Sunday.
