“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Do you spend a lot of time out of your body? What do I mean by that? Our consciousness, our point of presence, can move outside of our body. When we daydream or analyze a problem, our consciousness can move out of our body and into the ether. Out to a different time, the future or the past. Out to a different place, an abstract plane of existence maybe or a just different place than the one we are physically located. Your power lies in the embodiment of this bag of bones we call a body.
So remember to inhabit your body. It is easy to get caught up in life, with work, with family, and with our spiritual pursuits and neglect our physical shell. We can get single minded and lose touch with our body’s needs. Despite what some spiritual practices teach, we need our bodies to fully experience our lives and to move in the direction of our dreams. And we are here on Earth to realize our goals and dreams.
For those of us who are challenged at times at inhabiting our body, I want to recommend a class by Valerie Lyon of Mojo Recovery Therapies called The Body’s Secrets to Everything You Want. She is teaching techniques for people with chronic pain, people recovering from surgeries, and empaths, all of whom have made a habit of leaving the body. Check it out, it takes place later this month.
