There are so many ways you can have fun with your body. When you are willing to include your body in your life, what shows up is more vulnerability, more softness, more authenticity and more joy. Here are some ways I like to have fun and include my body:

There are so many ways you can have fun with your body. When you are willing to include your body in your life, what shows up is more vulnerability, more softness, more authenticity and more joy. Here are some ways I like to have fun and include my body:

Tell your body an inside joke

I often ask people in my Access Consciousness 3-day Body Classes to do home play, this gradually opens them up to the intimacy that is possible when we are truly willing to communicate with our body and allow our body to communicate with us.

Sometimes the home play is about telling your body a joke. The mere idea of telling our body a joke puts people into question and questions always open up different possibilities. Most people function from answer, judgement, conclusion and disappointment when it comes to their body. What if you could use all of that to have fun and laugh with your body? How can you turn judgements and conclusions about your body into a good laugh with your body instead?

Have a laugh with your body

When you have a laugh with your body, even if it starts off sarcastically, the polarity of judgement can not survive in the space that your laughter creates. Judgements melt into being only an interesting point of view, and joy abounds.

So, what joke could you tell your body that would make you and your body laugh more, together? Try something like: “Hey body, let’s run up that hill at 70km per hour!” or “Hey body, let’s drink some Coca Cola before the board meeting and burp as we say hello”. Now, you never have to actually do either one of those things but the absurdity of it can make it an inside joke, just between you and your body. How?

Well, if you never run, for example, the idea of running uphill at 70km per hour is actually quite funny, how would your body react to that suggestion? “Run up that hill at 70km per hour? Yeah, right. Are you kidding?” Or “Hey let’s not and say we did.”

Or let say you always burp after taking the first sip of Coca-Cola (as I do). Every time you or someone else takes a sip of Coca-Cola before making a speech, you and your body will have a silent chuckle, your inside joke.

Could you have fun playing and making jokes with your body without a point of view and without the making it significant? Absolutely!

Are you willing for your body to surprise you?

What surprise could you and your body be and enjoy together?

If you were willing to listen would your body tell you something that goes totally against what you thought was true? I remember once in India, at an Access Consciousness 7-day event, someone offered to bring me a cup of Chai. I said “No, thanks. My body doesn’t like Chai”. It felt heavy when I said it, but I pretended not to notice that because I knew my body didn’t like milk, which they usually put in Chai. The person said, “Really? Are you sure?” I reconsidered and the idea of having Chai felt lighter and more attractive. So I said “no, I’m not sure. I guess I’ll try some Chai, thank you.”

Would you be willing to have your body surprise you and NOT make your past experiences a conclusion that limits the amount of fun and play you and your body can have at any given moment?

I had some Chai and my body loved it. I didn’t assume that from then on it would want Chai. Instead, I was willing to be surprised by the next moment and the next possibility that showed up for me and my body. What surprise are you willing to receive from you body without having to solidify it into a conclusion?

How can your body help you with creation?

Your body was once just a thought, an idea, a seed, a possibility, way before it came into physical form. What can your body tell you about the energy of creation?

What is the energy, the engagement, the connection and the communion with the elements of the universe that determines how something manifests?

Ask your body to show you! Ask your body: “What energy is required to bring this creation into physical actualization?”

Have fun experimenting, playing, creating and bringing your ideas to life, together!
