It can start with a little niggle. A slight ache or pain somewhere. Your body starts whispering to get your attention. Unless you have a connection with your body, chances are you’ll ignore it and eventually become so used to pain that you stop noticing it altogether.
Living in the pain of this reality — whether it’s physical or otherwise — is not fun.
Here’s a great clearing from the Creative Edge of Consciousness you might like to use.
What have you made so vital, valuable and real about living in the pain of this reality that keeps you from the natural birth of total possibility in every moment of every day? Everything that is will you destroy & uncreate it all? Right and wrong, good and bad, POD and POC, all 9, shorts, boys and beyonds.
So, how do you create a connection with your body and be present— really present — in your life?
For Dr Dain Heer, the co-creator of Access Consciousness, movement and exercise are two of the ways he connects with his body.
“When I exercise different areas of my body and get them moving, I connect with them and I have an energy of presence,” he said.
“When you walk, or when you do sit-ups, you connect with it and you actually start occupying the space of your body and have a connection with it that allows it to change.”
It’s the same with our lives. We’re not willing to be dynamically present, usually because we’re not committing to our lives, Dain added.
“Until you do, you’re like this waspy, wispy apparition in your life. Rather than something that’s so dynamically present that you get to choose and determine where it goes.”
Your body is a sensory playground; built entirely for pleasure so why would you ignore it?
As the founder of Access Gary Douglas stated succinctly, if you’re not intensely present with your body, you can’t enjoy the damn thing!
“The intensity with your body and the presence with your body is something you have to choose,” he said.
