Hello Spiritual Warriors! and Welcome to this week’s edition of The Source!
This week we’ve been exploring the concept of mindbodyspirit – essentially total wholeness. When we look at all the ways that wellness & wellbeing ripple through our life – making up pieces of the whole – we see it in the Five Realms of Existence, which I explored pretty deeply in my book destressifying. (If you haven’t read it yet – c’mon!!! what are you waiting for? And if you have, you know what I’m talking about.) But, let’s quickly review. The Five Realms of Existence are:
- our Physical Realm;
- our Emotional Realm;
- our Material Realm;
- our Relationship Realm;
- and our Spiritual Realm.
These five touchpoints cover every aspect of our life from our bodies, to our feelings, to our stuff and our finances, our connections — (from our relationship to self to our intimate & core relationships, our lovers & work-mates, our relatives, friends & acquaintances) –our work environment, our community, our purpose, our belief systems, and our connection to Source, God, the divine or our higher power.
Our wholeness is the completeness and interconnectedness of all aspects of our self. And the concept of mindbodyspirit is an important reminder that Divine Spirit flows through every facet of our life on this planet and beyond – from the most mundane moment to the most transcendent.
And riding right alongside wholeness in every moment is the power of healing. And that’s because we were born WHOLE and perfect – with the essence of the divine rippling through every cell in our body… and then life unfolded before us. Even as a child of 5, 7, or 9 years old, we had to interpret the world and guess how to respond to it. As a teenager, we were forced to make so many critical choices without any experience or insight. We had to trust people and their decisions about us – even while they were choosing poorly for themselves. The disappointments, unmet expectations, heartbreaks, betrayals, stubbed toes and traumas we experienced created hurts, wounds, dents, and scars that fragmented us… left us feeling less-than, wrong, broken or damaged in some way.
But deep within, resting at our core was that WHOLENESS… that perfection… that brilliance… which became obscured, splintered, and hidden under our makeup, beneath our clothes, behind the walls of our heart.
Fully embracing mindbodyspirit requires that we surrender to the one-ness of existence; allow your self to truly become vulnerable; stop hiding, shielding, blocking and protecting; and finally… let the Universe gently kiss your soul. In that moment, you re-awaken that brilliance… that perfection… your Inner Healer!
It’s always been there but most of us have dumbed it down over the past 20 years and waking your mindbodyspirit means that all the fragmented pieces of your life begin to heal. Your physical body stops struggling and spontaneously rejuvenates; your emotional blockages melt away and confidence replaces fear; your non-nourishing relationships fade into the background and love surrounds you – inside and out; and you begin to trust again – to believe in yourself again and to say YES! to life… just like when you were a child before someone told you to stop dreaming and to be realistic.
This is not pie-in-the-sky gibberish. This is not new age woo-woo mumbo jumbo. We can return to our wholeness! We can re-awaken our inner healer. We can re-invent ourselves and dance wildly in the moonlight. We can laugh till our belly hurts. We can embrace life and celebrate! We can connect with someone we’ve never met and feel our heart spark again with love. All of this is possible… all of this is probable… in fact, all of this is highly likely… if… you will take the step back home to YOU… to your heart… to your wholeness… to your mindbodyspirit.
I am here to help you re-connect with that magnificent being resting inside. You don’t need to do it alone – NO ONE ACCOMPLISHES ANYTHING GREAT ALONE!!! Meditate every day. Lean in the direction of your dreams. Live these teachings. Trust in your self and trust in the universe. And your life will continue to unfold with grace & ease. I PROMISE YOU THAT THIS IS TRUE.
In the meantime, I’ll see you in the gap!!
