Grounding into your physical body requires trust and love. Do you love and respect your body, or have you spent your entire life trying to escape it? When is the last time you spoke words of love to your body?
You have heard me say before that you should ground into your physical body instead of the earth. This is very hard to do if you do not trust your body.
Perhaps others have abused or assaulted your body. Or perhaps you have abused your body yourself? Self abuse takes on many forms, from overeating, starvation, denying your body the proper nutrients and fuel it needs, cutting, drugs, alcohol, to hyper self criticism.
A body has consciousness of its own. When it has been abused, it makes it hard for us to respect it or trust it enough to feel fully present within it. It is important to remember that you chose that body prior to coming here. You felt it would be the proper vehicle for your human experience. It is a symbiotic relationship. The soul must have a body to have a human experience, and the body needs a soul.
If you have been resentful towards your body, or treated it poorly, or have experienced abuse from others towards your body, then a level of healing is needed before you can fully ground into your body. You can begin this healing process immediately by speaking words of love and appreciation to your body.
Each step you take is a blessing. Thank your feet and legs for the millions of steps it has taken.
Each breath is a blessing. Thank your lungs and diaphragm for your every breath.
Even the fat cells in your body are working overtime to protect you from the toxins you’ve ingested over the years.
Spend some time in the coming weeks to connect fully with each part of your body. Say words of love and appreciation to your body. Make it part of your daily ritual to bless and thank your body as you shower or apply lotion. Notice how it responds. Notice how your attitude towards your body shifts and changes. Notice how your attitude towards yourself changes.
Then start setting the intention when you ground that you are grounding into your physical body. How does that feel? See how the connection gets stronger each day. See how you start to become fully present.
These are important steps for self healing, and no one can do it for you.
