Have you talked to your body lately?

If you have not talked to your body lately, then it is time to begin a conversation. Our bodies are constantly trying to communicate with us. Sometimes we misunderstand or ignore these attempts to get our attention. The usual language of our elbows, wrists or backs is pain, stiffness, swelling or other symptoms.

We all can intuitively translate this type of body talk into words in order to learn more from these seemingly one-sided conversations. Intuition is possible because every atom in our holographic universe is linked to every other atom at a level beyond the limitations of space and time. According to the modern understanding of the physical world, all atoms constantly form and re-form from the same, shared energy.

At the level of shared energy, mind atoms do a synchronized dance with all the other atoms in our physical form. Separation and isolation do not exist in this realm. We sense their oneness through a process called intuitive knowing. Everyone can experience this level of knowing. It is a natural ability, not limited to a chosen few who possess unique gifts. The process of intuitive awareness can be encouraged and nurtured in almost any individual who desires to use it.

At times it can be purposely suppressed — most commonly by fear. The prospect of becoming intuitively sensitive frightens some people because they might be disturbed by an awareness of what is happening around them. I have struggled with this dilemma since childhood and have developed a strategy for remaining intuitively sensitive without becoming overwhelmed by unwanted impressions.

In order to have a conversation with our knee, elbow or any other part of our body, all we have to do is set our intention to become aware of what that body part requires from us. We can then ask aloud or in writing for the body to tell us what it needs. The response may come as a waking thought or in a dream.

However the body responds, it will give us guidance about what it needs on the physical, behavioral and emotional levels. These needs may be difficult or impossible to comprehend in any other way.

With practice, we can relax and clear our minds of assumptions, worries or fears. If we do not release our own thoughts, they can confuse or interfere with the communication. This clearing step becomes easier as we learn to blend our intentions and mental energies with the specific body part.

Some people who regularly use these techniques suggest that we name the part, such as “achy back” or “strained elbow,” in order to focus on it more clearly. Others prefer to use detailed anatomical illustrations to assist in visualization.

I recommend attuning to agape (unconditional love) as the final step in the conversation. Love relaxes the body’s energy field and promotes natural healing as part of the communication. Although healing of this sort does not always cure symptoms, it does promote physical and emotional harmony, as well as compassionate self-awareness. Once balance is restored and the body’s needs are fulfilled, unwanted physical symptoms frequently disappear.
