You have over 50 trillion cells in your body, ever multiplying and dying and creating new cells, ever transforming.
Every cell has a consciousness
Your cells work day and night to keep you alive. Your cells react to your heart beat, brain wave messages and emotions such as fear, stress, anxiety, happiness, joy and love. You constantly send signals to your cells with every thought and every heart beat.
You have the magic of life within you
Life cannot be explained by science or religion, life is a phenomenal force of energy that exists within everything. Even stones are made up of tiny crystals that have grown from nature’s life force.
Physicists say we are made of 40% stardust
NASA tells us that that the abundance of elements in our body creates the building blocks of life and is also found in the stars of the Milky Way.
You are part of the universe and the universe is part of you.
When you look at an atom and its electrons and protons circulating around the nucleus in the centre, it looks like our milky way with the planets and stars circulating around the sun.
You really are so much more than you think!
Loving who you are is to love your physical body and respect the life-force that is within you. We have a universe inside of us that is made of 7 billion billion billion atoms. Scientists say we have more atoms in our bodies than there are stars in the observational universe (one billion trillion) our atoms are constantly moving and changing form, constantly healing us and helping us function with no help from our conscious mind. We are not only connected to our inner universe we are connected to this large expansive outer universe that creates life, ever changing and transforming. Life is truly miraculous in how it all works; every part of our body is a living miracle! But the thing that is truly magical is that when you heal and love your inner world it starts to reflect in your outer world too.
Loving your body always starts with your breath, breathing deeply and peacefully, deep breaths send signals to your body that everything is ok, everything is good. When your breathing is shallow, your heart is affected and this has a knock on effect to the whole of your body, shallow breathing can create panic, stress, worry and anxiety. Fear and anger in the heart will send signals to your body of threat and alarm. Re-connecting to your body helps you re-member who you truly are.
How do we forget who we truly are?
Sometimes we keep playing the same movie over and over again and our reactions are the same as when we were children, it’s like a soldier still fighting when the war has stopped. We react to situations from our past, thinking the outcome will be the same but we are not seeing it as the truth or living in the now. We may have been told that we were a certain character, but this would have just been a judgement from another person, so if we take it on board as a truth it becomes us, but in truth it isn’t us.
Core beliefs are not easy to identify and they only surface in difficult situations or in meditation when the conscious mind is no longer in control. When our conscious mind becomes quiet we can then discover what’s really going on within us. This is important because our subconscious mind governs our life, this is the place where we hold onto beliefs and perceptions that may have come from old wounds, or from other people’s beliefs that we have taken on board.
We can also lose ourselves trying to fit in, so we become a person that we think other people will like, or we may try to be like another person. But we are all individual and our individuality determines who we are .A rose does not look at a sunflower and say I wish I was a sunflower. A rose is a rose and each rose is individual and when we observe this flower we can see the beauty in each of them and further more each individual petal of a rose. The same applies to each of us; we are all unique and have unique talents that only we can put into the world. The secret to happiness and fulfilment is to just be who we are.
So our mind and nervous system works to protect us and it does so in many ways. We all have different defence systems, some people have to be right because they feel if they are wrong it will make them a bad person, so they have to make sure everything is right and then they feel they are good and safe. Some people escape, if conflict faces them they walk away and if too much stress comes into their life they will escape into watching TV or playing games, or drinking etc Some people have to play the victim and the poor me card, this is the only way they feel they will get love or attention. Some people push others away if they get too close. There are many different defence characteristics that can be defined both psychologically and energetically and these defence systems have a knock on effect to our physical and mental wellbeing.
So the best place to be on all levels of your being is a heart centred place with a balanced mind set, where thoughts are in the now and connected to nature and all that is. This is the perfect place, and some people experience that daily and others have never experienced it. Psychologically and energetically this heart centred place is within us every minute of every day, it’s who we are, it’s the place where we find our individual truth. Most of us waver from feeling good to feeling bad every day and most of us let outside influences deter how we feel and we unknowingly play the blame game and victim role. This is a level of consciousness that we can heal and then go on to master a higher level of consciousness. This higher level has been reached by many philosophers, business people, billionaires, holy figures, authors, teachers and the list goes on. This higher consciousness has been reached by millions of people and each one of them has inspired others through their individual teachings or writings. Some people just live in this consciousness and enjoy life and everything it has to offer! I am sure there are many of you reading this that have experienced this higher consciousness and can live it 50- 60% of the time. I probably would define myself as one of those people. If you too are one of those people then you will know that meditation and inner work has to become a daily practice and the rewards for this daily practice are miraculous. If you have experienced miracles and universal love then you are probably experiencing moments of complete joy, wonderment, tranquillity, inner peace and contentment. It’s a great place to be in and truly magical.
Dr Michael Beckwith teaches life visioning and talks about 4 levels of consciousness; Level 1 – victim, blame and gossip consciousness
Level 2 – Manifest consciousness
Level 3 – Channelling individual essence
Level 4 – I am and being consciousness.
He says that in each part of our lives we can be at different levels of consciousness. So for example spiritually you may be at level 4 but in relationships you may be at level one. Or you may experience oneness in relationships but with money you are still at level one. This really resonates with me and I can identify each of these levels to different parts of my own life.
What I have discovered recently is that bringing your thoughts back into the now and bringing your energy fully into your body and loving every part of you has a tremendous healing effect. I used to teach and write self development books, but I was missing something and that something was to love me and bring energy into me and connect to my inner wisdom. It’s in the being and the doing of self love, inner work and living in the now that really transforms your life. The true and vital key is to know that you are part of the universe and the universe is part of you and the vibration of love creates a field of miracles and good living.
Try this exercise to momentarily feel that higher consciousness and to feel your true individual essence. It will take just 5 minutes. Notice how your ego mind will fight with you as you start to relax, it will tell you, you haven’t got time, it will tell you you’ve got too much to do, and it will tell you that it’s not worth it. There are many books written by some great philosophers who talk about re-training the mind and taking control of it. If we let the ego thoughts control us we will not be able to access the higher consciousness. It’s something that has to be worked on daily and the rewards are good. We have to learn how to quiet the ego mind. The ego mind likes to tell us that we are not good enough, or we are too good for this etc this is how we recognise the ego, it will always measure you against everyone else. Whereas the higher mind recognises you as an individual and no one is better or worse than you.
So try this exercise and observe your ego as you start to connect to your higher mind, your ego may even try to cut corners. Listen and observe your thoughts but don’t let them control you. Just quiet the mind.
- Slow the breath and inhale all the way in and exhale all the way out. Do this 10 times, close your eyes. Feel that inner peace. Stay focused and be aware of what your mind says, try to quiet the thoughts and just relax into peace.
- Now concentrate on your heart and visualise light pouring into your heat as you breathe in. Do another 10 breaths. You may start to feel warm or a tingling, your hands may get hot. This is chi energy starting to flow through you.
- Now just say higher consciousnesses connect with me now and take 10 more deep breaths and observe your feelings and thoughts. Really feel the peace and softness in each breath. In this state it is good to ask questions about your life because it has no ego or emotional drama attached to it.
Now if you didn’t experience anything try the exercise again, starting from number 1. You will feel more at peace with yourself and the world after just the first three steps. If you felt tired, like you needed to sleep, it’s a sign that you need to sleep and rest more, we often stay awake because of addictions or got to dos but our bodies and brain need to rest and recuperate. If you really feel you connected to something then go on to the next steps.
- Take 10 more deep and peaceful breaths and really feel that peace and connection within you. Picture the highest vision for your life, think about things you would love to do and feel it in your body.
- Now be aware of any feelings attached to this vision. What do you feel and where do you feel it? If it’s a good feeling expand the feeling, if it’s bad, explore where this bad feeling is coming from.
- Now open your eyes bring your energy down into your feet, and just sit for a while, have a glass of water. Connect to that vision before you go to sleep every night.
Please let me know what you experience.
So I will finish where I started to complete the circle of transformation.
