I have a body but I am not my body. I have a mind but I am not my mind. I have thoughts but those thoughts are not me. I choose which thoughts I want to make manifest in the world.
This realization came to me when I left my body in 1997. At age twenty five, I had a life changing out-of-body experience that left me completely mystified. I will write and share about that at another time but suffice it to say, the experience transformed the way I view my body, mind, and spirit.
Whether you have had a profound, life-altering experience or not, you already know what works for you. You've experimented, dieted, traveled, searched and along that path you've discovered what doesn't work as much as what does. This experimentation of life with failures and successes brings us the self-realization we seek. The challenge is this: we are so conditioned to look outside of ourselves for the answers and we are more comfortable being told what to do rather than turn within and reflect on what we know to be true for ourselves.
Your innate wisdom wants you to listen, learn and remember what works for you.
In this three-part blog series, I intend to share my self-discovered nuggets of wisdom gained after decades of seeking, searching, and training with different lifestyle choices, eating regimes, diets, modalities and healing therapies. This is what my wisdom wants me to remember as I seek to be in right relationship with my body, mind and spirit.
Regardless of where you are on your life journey, you know what works for you. The question is, are you listening? Are you following those quiet whispers that guide you to try new things? Are you doing the things that already work for you?
If you need support discovering your own truths, join us at our upcoming wellbeing retreat called, Lumeria. We've designed it with our wisdom to help you activate your own.
Here's what works for me as it relates to nourishing my physical self. What works for you?
Relationship with Body
Phew. That's a list! And, it's likely not even close to what works for me. You see, so much works, and it changes over time. We just need to orient our focus inside and out to that mind-set.
We'd love to hear your thoughts on what works for you? Your wisdom knows. Please share in the comments below or on our Plenty Facebook page and keep your eyes out for the second part of this series on relationship with mind.
