Mind, Body, Heart & Soul Wellbeing
You are more than your body…
You are a spiritual being with a powerful MIND, a complex BODY,
a magnificent HEART and a radiant brilliant SOUL.
When we talk about Mind, Body and Soul (or Spirit), I used to think it was at the very physical level, I couldn’t quite grasp that it was much more profound. Now as I progress along my spiritual path, I understand that WE are beautiful and deeply complex in our nature — we are indeed so much more than our physical bodies.
So, this blog is a quick delve into each of the four aspects and sharing some insights and tips into caring for YOU with some simple and quick practices (I know so many of us are time poor and struggle to fit in long daily practices).
I sincerely hope that you will gain some ways to improve and boost your general physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.
Thoughts drive your emotions: “What you think you become” – Guatama Buddha.
Your Mind can be your worst enemy or your best friend.
When you are stuck in the loop of trauma replays you are trapped in that emotional trauma, reliving it time and time again; alternatively, once you take back control of your mind, your can use it to enjoy a happier life by focussing on the ‘good things’.
I know that having suffered with PTSD in childhood, compounded with grief over the loss of motherhood, I was stuck in the past going through unpleasant situations again and again. This cycle eroded my self esteem with nasty head talk and negative thinking. My thoughts were constantly leading me into fear, disappointment and self-blame. I was depressed – crushed by saddness, loss and confusion.
Learning NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) helped me to understand my Mind and the role it was playing in creating my prison of misery. The tools I learned helped me to reframe and reprogram my brain to create new stronger and more positive synapsis to connect with my body (Neuroplasticity). Your brain/mind is the computer part of your body, sometimes you need to delete old files, create order and make space for new more helpful projects.
EXERCISE: To learn to calm your mind check out using MEDITATION as a tool to allow your mind to enter a calming state and disrupt the negative flow. (Download the FREE ‘Garden of Inner Peace’ meditation.)
Your body is a beautiful and complex system – and each one of us is unique.
Your physical body allows you to move around and do things. It allows you to experience the world in a physcial way through your senses. It serves you in your daily routine, and with the right training you can run marathons or climb mountains.
Often people feel pain or tiredness and this is your body informing you that something is not quite right. If you break your leg, with the right conditions your leg will heal.
Sometimes, aches/pains/illness/disease may stem from a deeper source – it may be past trauma, or your body’s reaction to stress or overwhelm. It is reflection of what is going on in our lives. Illness is often the body’s way of letting us know we need to pause and address an issue.
Keeping your body active through movement is important, while choosing to eat a healthy diet also helps to keep it functioning properly.
Make time to take care of your body and it will serve you well.
EXERCISE: Put on some music and dance – allow your body to move and flow to the rhythm.
“Home is where the Heart is.” -Anon
Learning to love yourself is a vital part of moving down from living from your head to living a heart-led life.
This is a magical step in the healing process, as LOVE is where we come from and LOVE is the fuel for our heartfield. When you open your heart to feel and experience the right tapestry of your life (the ups and downs) your heart will grow and expand. This heart expansion allows more love to flow from you. It create a beautiful ‘LOVE’ ripple which touches the lives of others.
SELF-LOVE is the process of reconnecting with who you are as a person and acknowledging your own worth and value in the bigger picture of the world.
Find your way home to your heart, is the path to finding your way home to your SOUL – the heart is the gateway to the soul.
EXERCISE: Sit or stand and place your hands over your heart, close your eyes and inhale-exhale long and slow breathes. Think about all the things you love and are grateful for.
A SOUL is similar to a flame, in its properties, in how it behaves, always yearning to rise yet higher.
There are a few opinions on what the SOUL is… and I wish to share my personal belief with you, it is up to you whether you agree or you have perhaps other ideas.
The SOUL is the light of ‘god’ within us – or I feel it is more like a ball of light connected to our heartfield. It is our guiding light.
It is the plug that connects with SPIRIT (Divine Source, the One, God, Allah…), with spirit being the divine energy flowing into us, just like electricity.
Everyone has a soul and it is our soul that journeys through many lifetimes and through many different worlds/plains. Our soul is the immortal component – seeking, learning and growing.
Soul-led living is being guided by your Soul’s wisdom, following your SOUL PURPOSE and living a life filled with love, joy, compassion and kindness. You know that you are connected to all things. Living such a life brings peace and a deep sense of fulfilment.
To me this is SOUL MAGIC.
