Temple of the Soul
At home in your body
It is time to recognize ourselves both as beings of boundless light as well as accepting our incarnation on earth 100%, meaning to honour our miraculous body and each cell of it, in all its perishable limitedness, too. After all, it is the physical body that enables us to live a phantastic adventure on earth. If you are not anchored firmly in your body and unconnected to earth you may have difficulties facing the current challenges.
Often it is due to former injuries, anxieties, traumas, and feelings of shame and guilt that we shy away from fully accepting being in a body and feeling at home in it. Many of these old irritating conditions may enter our consciousness now and manifest in physical and mental symptoms. They wish to be seen and to be acknowledged. If we ignore the call personal progress will be stalling. The actual situation asks for an undivided commitment to our life on earth and in a human body, without an „escape hatch“ in the back of our minds.
The needs and processes of the body take time as they have a slower pace than the quick mind that makes a decision to say goodbye to a trauma thus paving the way for healing. It may take quite some more time, patience and loving care until the healing impulse finds its way from the mind to the physical level and becomes an overall reality in the body-spirit-system.
On our way through the current changes it is therefor important to constantly be checking:
• Am I one hundred percent present in my body?
• Am I well grounded?
• Do I fully say YES to my incarnation?
To be present in the Here and Now also means to fully inhabit the body, as is. It means to consciously carry the light of love in every cell of our body and let it shine through the body rather than display it as some sort of „decorative outerwear“ (or as a saint’s halo only…).
To stay centered, connected and anchored means to make sure we’re well grounded in the body and ready to express it joyously. We all know what feels good and what is helpful for attaining this: movement, sports, dancing, singing, resting, touching, massages, garden work, yoga, bathing, conscious sensory perception, sensual pleasures, and, of course, as much contact with the earth and nature as possible.
And if you are not sure what your body needs, ask him/her and feel deeply for an answer. Your body will enjoy your attention, your sensitive listening and conscious feeling. And if you don’t peg away, your dialogue shall become ever clearer. Your soul is at home in your body, at last – in its sacred temple!
