Your Physical Body

 

Do you honor your physical body?

Or do you criticize and abuse it

With loathing and disregard?

How do you treat this temple that houses your soul?

Dear One, are you in touch with this vessel which enables you to experience this physical plane? Without it you could not do the work you came here to do. And yet, so many of you abuse these vessels, these bodies, these vehicles which house your very soul.

Yes, you are more than these physical bodies. You are spiritual beings of light and love. But how many of you treat these physical frames with total disregard? How often do you bless this body, give thanks to it for being healthy and balanced, or treat it as the temple it is?

Once again, we urge you to get out of your head and become more aware of your surroundings. This includes being more aware of what your physical body is telling you at this very moment. Just as we have shown you how Mother Nature speaks to you, so too, does your physical body.

Yes, you are separate from this body. But just as we encourage you to treat all of your surroundings with love and respect, so too, we encourage you to do the same with your individual vessel.  There is so much self-criticism; too much of this, not enough of that. When is the last time you spoke lovingly to this vessel which transports you through this physical world?

When is the last time you cared for this body, not for the purpose of presenting to others the image that you think they want to see, but out of loving kindness? When have you cared for this body to tend its wounds, to rest those parts that have been over-exerted, or to allow it to replenish itself with some well-needed nurturing?

This world in which you live places so much emphasis on the physical and yet does not encourage nurturing, care-taking or loving embrace of that which serves you every day. It seems as though you push forward, ignoring the signals that you receive on a daily basis. Just as so many ravage Mother Nature without considering the long-term effects, so too many do the same to their physical bodies.

Can you honor this vessel by allowing it the attention it requires to best serve you? When you suffer a set-back, be it an illness or an injury, can you send it loving thoughts rather than fear or impatience for the delay in mobility? Can you listen to it when it tells you so clearly that this food, this activity causes it distress?

You may be separate from this physical body, but you are responsible for its upkeep, just as you are with those other possessions in your life. Do not take this body for granted, for while it will work as best it can, it does have its limitations.

We realize that for many of you, being in this physical realm is a new experience and this is why we feel it necessary to remind you of this charge you have in your care. Today and every day, bless this vessel  upon awakening. Thank it for hosting you during this lifetime experience. Treat it tenderly and listen to it as it speaks to you, for it most certainly does every moment of your day.

As you learn to be more in the present, rather than the past or the future, you will become more in tuned with not only what is happening around you, but within your own physical frame. Be gentle with yourself, spiritually, emotionally and physically.

For this existence here is a gift for you. Use this body to experience the Mother in all of her glory, from the sights, the aromas, the music, to the tastes and the tactile pleasures. Use this body to experience life to the fullest. But give it time to heal, to regenerate, to recover.

Listen to it. Bless it. Thank it.

And walk tall, walk proudly, walk gently in whatever frame you have been given this time.

For it is the perfect vessel for you to learn the lessons you came here to learn this life.

Honor it. Love it.

Dear One with All of Thee.
