Well Being In Body, Mind and Soul! 01/07/2010
"Regardless of what you try to accomplish in your lifetime, one fact is undeniable, -your physical/spiritual/sexual well being will enhance this accomplishment and that lack of well-being will be a hindrance."
Following any Path whether it be Spiritual, Tantric or Wellness, one must practice self-growth within,self-expression and self-love by taking care of your body as if it was your prize vehicle, because, guess what? It is..And not only your body, but your mind and soul as well.If you lack physical energy,let in toxic thoughts,and foods, carry extra weight, shovel empty calories devoid of any nutrition into your mouth, and than expect to hold space for your partner and connect deeply and intimately, it may not happen, especially if you are not congruent with how you treat your body and your awareness level within..It most likely won’t last very long and the quality and quantity of ecstatic bliss and intimacy with another will be sadly missing since you’re not feeling comfortable in your own skin, not looking the way you would like to,trapped in your own sensations and mind chatter and disallowing your energy of well being to flow.
But if instead you bring the Power of Passionate Purpose to all you do, say, think and feel, your life will shift in miraculous ways…
There are few things of greater value than the crowning accomplishment of a delicious feeling body..Remember that you’re translating everything thru the lens of how your body vehicle feels at any given moment..When you’re out of balance, it can have an affect on every other part of your life, especially intimacy with yourself and of course with another.. We live in a physical Universe.. We were not made to live here, disconnected from our bodies, trying to feel in our heads. Infact the mind by itself is mostly cold and unfeeling, unless it is hooked up to our heart where compassion, generosity and love can be felt.. Feel is the key word here.It has been said that “Feelings are the language of the Soul.” What does that quote really mean to you?
If you desire to connect deeply on a soul level, if you desire to be a sensual being than start with feeling intimate with your body vehicle…Bring awareness to what thoughts you entertain about your body temple…Which ones you actually breathe life into,which ones you accept and also which ones you reject or deny about how you truly want to look,feel and act in your body.
Wake up in the morning by stretching while still in bed with a smile on your face and touch yourself from your face to your feet, just to feel and appreciate your body,.Start opening your body by fully breathing and being grateful for aliveness in your body, stretching many times a day like a cat to be more flexible and aware, look for what feels good in your body not what hurts, get in touch with arousal in your body whether it be flirting with life, glancing at pretty flowers or a person, taking a walk and being one with nature and staying attuned in your body..
If, instead, you are more inclined to walk around numb and armored, hanging out in your head for days on end,because you don’t feel good in your body due to excess weight, low energy, pain and tension, than this will take focus and effort but AAH.. the rewards are off the charts…
By doing these practices, you will become more aware in body sensuality which will carry over to noticing what you are feeding your vehicle. Food is either toxic or nourishing.. Your choice! It’s either your poison or your medicine..It cannot be both.. In fact anything processed isn’t really food at all..It’s Poison, Garbage, Junk!! From your deeper awareness and more expanded perception, you may be guided to ask yourself these questions ” What will nourish my body right now?” “What food will act as fuel giving me the most energy for what I need to do today?” ” Will I eat to live or live to eat today”?
As I stated above,even your love life can suffer when you are out of balance in your body since everything is connected..I know that for most of us, there is a gap from where we are and where we want to be but how big that gap is, only you can decide.
Even if you feel overwhelmed at this time, atleast start doing something for your body… Take a yoga class or purchase a DVD,(my favorite is Kundalini yoga), learn and practice the 5 Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation, take a hot bath with candles, soothing music and incense(yes men included), walk around a health food store and check out the fruit and vegetable isle, never know who you can meet there.LOL:)familiarize yourself with new selections of what to eat, flirt with the opposite sex while staying present in your body, ask me about Rain nutrition, (product page)drink lots of alkaline water, meditate to Sat Nam or other, read books to expand your mind and get past your old conditioning.. I could suggest many but for starters “Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth”..Book 2 by Peter Kelder ( the Tibetan Rites are in there).. Last but not least, you could come to a Playshop for your “Ultimate Male Makeover”,Radical Warrior change, or if a woman than “Ultimate Female Makeover”, Radical Goddess Transformation…
