It is so difficult to feel satisfied with your life when you are feeling uncomfortable in your body. I’ve been there on numerous occasions and I’ve discovered that the desire to feel more comfortable in my body can serve to increase awareness about what constitutes balanced energy for my health and the fulfillment of my purpose.
The question I would ask you to consider is this, “What belief, habit or activity are you willing to release in order to experience greater comfort in your body?”
You might know the answer to that question already, or you might want to explore a little deeper. Consider asking yourself one or more significant questions to help you gain some insight.
Are you living a stressful life that has compromised you physically? Is your spirit calling you into stillness, and you’ve been ignoring the call? Have you avoided learning how to live appropriately with your empathic nature, so you are now stretched emotionally?
Do you have a physical condition that needs some undivided attention and energetic healing from you? Are you taking time to be in the wonderfully energizing experiences of Mother Nature? Are you giving yourself permission to enjoy the energizing influence of your own creativity?
Have you given yourself permission to meditate with and be lovingly present to your body to allow its wisdom to emerge? Have you created the time to experience the healing and stimulating power of self-love?
In my book, The Root of All Healing, http://www.RootOfAllHealing.com, I discuss the need to ask yourself some hard questions at some point in your healing journey. Sometimes, it is very helpful to become very still inside, ask yourself a significant question, allowing yourself to be aware of the answer.
What can make the question difficult is that we often don’t want to hear the answer because the answer makes us aware that we have some substantial change to make if we want to feel whole and vital. And yet, when it comes to our well-being, the difficult questions might be the most important questions to ask.
Inquire inside your spirit where things feel a bit uncomfortable because that is where your healing freedom and comfort with your body live—right on that precipice. That precipice is where your beliefs, feelings and actions are colliding.
Very likely there is something you need to believe or do that is radically different from what you believe or do right now. Getting to that core belief or change in action lives deeply within you.
Consider beginning with the first question I asked, “What belief, habit or activity are you willing to release in order to experience greater comfort in my body?” You don’t have to search for an answer. Simply ask and then surrender to Divine wisdom in whatever form it comes to you.
Become an observer of your life as you notice the insights that quietly and subtly come to you. Notice the new and more in-depth questions that come into your mind. Be with each question one at a time until you feel you have an answer. Follow the threads that are evident when your mind is quiet.
Rather than attempting to make yourself comfortable in your body, or make your body be what you want it to be, become an observer of your cycles. Notice what is happening in your thoughts and actions when you feel completely in comfortable. Also, notice what is happening when you feel uncomfortable.
Give yourself permission to feel compassion for old beliefs and behaviors that no longer serve you, after all they probably originated for good reasons. Then, give yourself permission to consider a completely new perspective about your body—a perspective that allows you to feel good about yourself while making the changes you desire.
