The Body Knows What It Loves

The following quotes come from a beautiful article that will appeal to anyone who has ever struggled with body image or moments when the body doesn’t behave the way we think it should behave, i.e. not healing “fast” enough or craving “inappropriate” things. In other words, pretty much everyone can benefit from reading the original post by Victoria Erickson. I leave you with some of the loveliest quotes selected by David:

“The body knows what it loves and what it loves most are gentle yet powerful things, same as the way we must care for it.”

“It loves things like the space between a look and a kiss. It loves things like the release of memory stirred from a scent. It loves rocking of any kind, slow rhythmic rocking it can sigh along with.”

“It loves the rise and fall of the sun’s comings and goings, constant and consistent in announcing days and nights. It loves other bodies, their skin, and hands and heartbeats.”

“It loves the curves of waves and sand underfoot. It loves the caress of cool sheets, intense pursuit, and silent solitude. It loves curiosity and goosebumps and song and virtue. It loves foods grown from the ground and fluid movement and rest. It loves to protect, to thrive, to harmonize, to taste and feel blessed.”

Your Body, Money and Ascension

All sorts of theories exist regarding the physical world and what kind of transition we’re really going through right now. 4D. 4 and a half D. 5D. Reality splitting in half. Reality layered like an onion. Revelations. (Yep, we’ve been getting some of those, and more due soon.) Debt slavery. “The Love of Money is the root of all evil.” “The only thing certain is Death and Taxes.” Law of Attraction. Law of Allowing. Citizens United. Occupy Wall Street. It’s enough to make your head spin, huh?

I don’t claim to know all those answers. I don’t think anyone can, because we are still co-creating the answers as we go along. That’s called Life, and why not make the best of it? Why not spend some time exploring and deciding what feels best to you? Because we won’t all choose the same thing. Even among Lightworkers, ideas of Paradise on Earth vary widely. We can share our hopes and dreams with others, share our theories, but we can’t make anyone else accept those as their Truth. We can simply observe what works the best for us, what produces our own results, what feels best when we imagine it, and what helps us to feel integrated in ourselves and with our planet.

We live in times of immense, diverse and intense change. “Death and Taxes?” Um, yeah, they probably won’t seem so certain after all, as people continue to enhance their abilities to see beyond the veil, and the Fed continues to be exposed for what it really is. 😉 If you can catch a glimmer of inspiration for your best version of a New World, then I encourage you to latch onto it, flow with it … embrace and celebrate it as you observe what you encounter along the way.

If you’ve struggled with Money and body image, please know that you have infinite choices in those areas, too. For Lightworkers hoping to move beyond duality, turning the physical world into a black or white issue increases rather than diminishes that duality. “Whatever we resist, persists,” so if you particularly hope to move beyond Money and all the things associated with having a body, then resisting those things only intensifies the energy surrounding them. That energy feeds more dissatisfaction. I would suggest, especially for people interested in a radically different physical realm experience (or even no physicality at all) to make peace with your body, body image and the idea of Money. Until you do, the emotions surrounding those hot spots will continue to shoot out cords that anchor you to the status quo.

Change will happen, but it will happen more slowly in the presence of anger, frustration and judgment. On the flip side, positive change can happen super fast with an attitude of gratitude. If you plan to leave 3Dality behind, then consider: this might be your last run through these here parts in this here “vehicle.” What do you love about your time on Earth? What do you love about the 3D experience? What makes it unique? How have your challenges freed you of illusions? How might you move beyond one of the biggest illusions — limitation? Hint: limitation is closely related to judgment: “For the measure you give will be the measure you get.” Something limitless cannot be measured. The only way to measure Self or potential comes from an acceptance of limitations. If you want to move into 5D — or wherever — then you will find the journey faster and easier if you allow yourself some “ease and please.”

Finding ways to love it all, even — especially — those super sticky barnacle parts, allows for a cleaner, less painful extraction from Ye Olde 3D World.

You can show peace and love in many ways, but your method matters less than how you actually feel. You body loves you and it won’t lie to you, so listen to it. Honor it with high quality food, nurturing sounds and colors, plenty of rest, and the chance to connect with the Earth. You don’t need to make this transition alone; Earth’s moving right along with you. You can journey together, and you don’t need to starve or struggle just because you intend to Ascend. Like attracts like. If you want to live in a freer, more joyful, abundant world, then start living it now. Maybe you can’t change everything overnight, but you can start shifting your own vibration immediately. In a 5D world, vibration matters more, not less. Manifestation happens more instantly in higher dimensions, and it happens on the basis of dominant vibration. If you’d love to manifest a better world, then start believing in that better world by proving to yourself — moment by moment — that you can find and generate elements of that better world.

For some people, a first step may include resonating with more free flowing finances, not because you support patriarchy and corruption — but because you need to shift your attitude in order to leave those things behind. You can look at your own life to see how well you’ve manifested your desires. If you feel happy in all areas, then congratulations! Perhaps you’ve already Ascended! If you feel satisfied in most areas, but certain parts of physicality prick you like pokey thorns, then 3Dality has delivered a message to you: something remains imbalanced in those areas. Somewhere in the continuum of Spirit, emotions, and/or thoughts, a glitch has occurred. It’s just information, not something to attack or judge. Information becomes opportunity in the presence of non-resistance.

I offer no right or wrong answer for the world you’d most love to manifest. On the contrary, I love that we live in a world large enough to accommodate our differences. I just wanted to share some thoughts for your consideration, as well as a call to look honestly at your results. If you like the results, keep going! If you don’t like how your results make you feel, then it may be time to reevaluate some methods, attitudes and preferences. Don’t be afraid to move step by step towards your larger hopes and dreams! What seems counterintuitive in the short term sometimes provides exactly what you seek long term. Again, trust your body. Trust those emotions.

And have some fun with it! We live on a playground. You can run around free, climb poles, swing on swings … or you can play freeze tag and sit around frozen until someone (hopefully, maybe, gosh, when’s it gonna happen?) unfreezes you or starts another game. Personally, I prefer to play! 😉 How ’bout you?

As Ghandi said, “We must become the change we wish to see in the world.”
