Our mind, body and Spirit are the three major pieces that comprise who we are and how our life unfolds.
Often this connection is either ignored, or we segment the three by acknowledging them individually as the need arises.
Consciously becoming aware of their interconnected nature allows us to move forward in healing. When we have experienced trauma in mind, body or Spirit, we tend to focus on healing what we perceive as the impacted areas. Acknowledging that we can heal from many directions without needing to solely focusing on the affected areas, creates the space to step back and let new paths of healing come forth.
Appreciate your body: Our bodies are resilient, powerful, and constantly functioning without our intervention. The body is designed to heal. We get to support that healing. When you have been through trauma or illness, it may feel like your body has betrayed you but instead, your body is going into survival mode to give you time to catch up and bring things in to heal it. It will serve you as long as you allow it to.
Acknowledge the power of mind and emotions: Our world begins in our minds. Every thought we think leads to more thought in the same direction. Test this out. Think about a certain subject and something that makes you feel angry, and soon you will be angry. Our thoughts manifest in our physical world. Think of a person – soon after the thought, you find yourself meeting them, or they call. Your thoughts and emotions feed each other. Think good thoughts, and you feel good emotionally. This changes the way the world around you looks. This power is yours to access.
Access the wisdom of Spirit: We have an eternal channel of wisdom and healing readily available and easily accessible. Use tools that allow you to access this support. Connect with a teacher or use a resource such as meditation or prayer to allow healing in your spirit, and access the divine love of Source/God/Goddess/Universe.
As you acknowledge the connection of mind, body and Spirit, take note of how what goes on in your mind and emotions, affects your body, and how your Spirit is then impacted. Thinking unhappy or resentful thoughts makes you feel tired, lowers your vibration and blocks your Spiritual connection. Consciously choosing your thoughts, evaluating your emotions to determine if those thoughts are supporting you, and thus opening your connection to Spirit, sends healing to your body.
I invite you to pay attention to your mind, body and Spirit connection this week and see how your acknowledgement of their interconnected nature supports you in your daily life.
