a love note from your Inner Wisdom
I am writing to remind you of things you already know. When you are having physical symptoms, it means that something is out of balance. There is an underlying cause that must be addressed. If you take the time to listen to your body, it will tell you what it needs.
Your body is the precious vehicle through which you have the gift of sensory experience. If you existed as a point of consciousness without form, you would miss out on all the wonders of the world. Imagine the delight of stepping into a warm, fragrant bath, the feel of a soft, cozy blanket, the texture of a cool, crisp grape bursting in your mouth, the taste of your favorite dessert, the sound of children laughing, the glory of a pink, red, lavender, gold sunset, the warmth of your lover’s embrace . . . The list is endless.
In gratitude for the gift of your body and out of respect, don’t take it for granted. Addressing your physical symptoms must be a priority. The existence of symptoms is an opportunity to give your body the tender, loving care it needs. Love heals.
The Great Physician lives within you, so tune in and get your prescription. This begins with your thought life and is followed by your actions. Forgiveness of self and others, plus claiming your fearlessness, prepares the soil for the planting of affirmative beliefs and statements that support your health. Healing begins in the mind because your thoughts and emotions directly impact your body in every moment through the release of chemical messengers that respond to what you think and feel. Make a case for or against your health—either way, you’re right. So therefore, start your day by imagining what it feels like to be radiantly healthy and by remembering with great fondness the people and things you love. Let your imagination fill your body with healing love.
What behaviors would feel nourishing for you at this time? Perhaps you need to rest, be proactive with supplements, nurture yourself with essential oils, write healing affirmations, listen to soothing music, or watch a funny movie. Perhaps a visit to your family doctor is in order.
Whatever the case . . . Remember, this moment is an opportunity to connect to Love and so to live into the fullness of who you are.
As always, do what best awakens you to Love,
Your Inner Wisdom
