The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention."

I am aware of my body in each moment and choose pleasure.

A dear, long-time friend recently asked the following:
How aware are you of:
- your senses?
- your body -- its condition, needs and wisdom?
- your fears?
- your defences - how you hide what you’re really feeling?
- your self talk?
- your beliefs and their power to create your reality?
- your passions?
- your purpose?
He suggested going on a treasure quest to understand each part’s needs and longings; hence self-discovery.
The question that really relates to what I want to share about today is our awareness of our bodies. And even more so, our relationships with our bodies, as it directly influences our deeper attitudes toward life, our ability to fully bring our decisions into being, and the way in which we fulfill actions.
We have 75 trillion cells in our bodies, each listening and responding in each moment. Each cell has a specific function and works together in perfect harmony that ensures our well-being.
Many people use their bodies as some kind of vehicle to obtain or achieve things. They are completely unaware of the intelligences hiding within our cells, our kinaesthetic intelligence (muscular intelligence) and our sensory intelligence.
We can exercise profusely and eat healthy, without being aware of our bodies’ intelligences or without having any type of aware relation to our bodies. It sometimes looks as if some people punish their bodies in the way they treat them. The mind makes the decision about what is good or not for the body based on a variety of inherited or taken on belief systems and judgments.
Our bodies are not allowed to speak up for itself. It loves pleasure and delight, and knows what it needs. The body was not designed to suffer and struggle. Besides, the mind will soon follow to seek only those situations that bring pleasure and delight once we start a conscious relation with both body and mind.
The words we speak on a daily basis are being heard by our cells and therefore directly influence our ability to manifest our dreams and ideals. Just imagine the messages your cells and body hear each day as you not only think, but speak.
Our self-talk and the words we speak can cause major resistance within our bodies, as our dreams and ideals are not congruent with the vocabulary we use daily and the tone (charged with emotions) in which we speak out loud.
What we say is not what we mean. This incongruence causes tremendous turmoil on a cellular level and inner conflict, which creates situations where we are not able to take inspired action.
We experience distrust, discontent, suspicion, frustration, but do not understand why this disharmony stops us from being joyful, abundant, and successful. We get involved in unconscious, reactive and down spiral talk, and have no idea how that impacts our overall well-being and vitality.
Aurora Ratana published this recently on a social network
“If the words your spoke appeared on your skin…… would you still be beautiful?
Something to think about…
Feeling stuck? Or feeling scattered? Or feeling directionless? Feeling used? Feeling pressured? Denying yourself pleasure on some level?
Every heard of someone who eats healthy, exercises each day and who is positive of mind and heart, but who cannot lose weight or who experience some kind of disease?
These are all manifestations of a beautiful body that does not want to execute our decisions that were made on a mental or heart level as it is ignored, imprisoned or treated as a thing.
We are all born with a powerful body-mind-spirit-heart connection. No aspect or part of us work independently; they all work together as one unit. If one part is slightly neglected or ignored, the rest won’t cooperate in unison and will act out accordingly. It is like walking on one leg without any assistance; it is kind of impossible. Jump yes, but not walk.
We live in a world where embodiment and the body-mind-spirit-heart connection are still new concepts.
However, inspired, joyful and fully embodied action relies on this powerful, integrated and alive connection.
To find true delight in even mundane activities is possible when we cherish, nurture and develop our awareness of our magnificent bodies.
A dear one articulated it in a beautiful way: A light shines through and from you; the light of your spirit. The body no longer hides this light as it is appreciated, acknowledged, and treasured. And this happens naturally and cannot be stopped.
Once we value our bodies and start to build a love relation with it, regardless of preconceptions, projections and belief systems about what our bodies should look or perform like, magic flows from us into the world. Every action brings joy and inspires others. Renewed vitality and enthusiasm radiates from us.
Exercise and eating habits turn out to be a sensation feast. We no longer speak and think about or treat our bodies as a separate thing. We become conscious of the intricate and delightful interconnectedness and power of being a total,
integrated and whole being.
Fortunately, humans begin to understand the value and magic of the power of suggestion, positive thought and affirmations.
To become more aware of your body and its magnificent intelligences, I would like to share a few, beautiful practices that you can use daily.
When you wake up each day, kiss your left hand 3 times.
In the shower or bath, sing to your precious body: “All the cells and neurons in my body are happy, healthy, joyful, playful, excited, flowing, abundant, enthusiastic, aware, awake, alert, and work together in perfect harmony.”
And another to sing to your body: “I seek out pleasure for you in each moment.”
Eating becomes a pleasure sensation and exercise an adventure.
Going shopping for food or eating in restaurant becomes a joy rendezvous. You allow your body to guide you and not your mind. You ask your body: “What is it that will nourish and delight you today?”
All you need to do is to pay attention and notice the subtle nudges and sensations in your body. Your body knows what it needs. No two people are the same; hence no standard diet or eating plan or exercise regime will work for everyone.
The more we listen to our bodies, the more we will become in tune with its natural rhythm and needs.
As we start paying attention to not only our thoughts, but our self-talk and the words we speak out loud, we become more available to delight.
Becoming aware of what gives us delight and what not, brings many miracles, synchronicities and joy into our lives.
Take time to pamper your body. Do a smile meditation where you start to smile to every body part, your cells, your neurons, your organs, your glands, your systems, your bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, skin, tissue, your blood, DNA and RNA, your brain, your core, your energy centres, your heart, your spine, your aura and all your light bodies.
Invite friends over for dinner and host a pleasure quest. You blindfold them and hand-feed them a variety of succulent dishes with unique, different flavors, textures and aromas. You entice them to eat consciously and indulge in their senses in a timeless way.
You observe what pleasure their bodies derive from this exercise. You will be surprised at what you perceive and experience yourself.
Look for pleasure…
Inspired action does not only bring delight, it also is quite fun, fulfilling and meaningful.
Is it not time to experience true joy in each moment and in each activity?
Is it not time to explore what truly brings you joy and excites you?
Is it not time to allow yourself to indulge in the beauty and magnificence of your precious and powerful body?
Always start with a smile… it attracts more joy and gives your body a powerful signal…One that does not settle for less…
I would love to invite you to our June Trust Online Treasure and Pleasure Quest where we will play with this powerful
body-mind-spirit-heart connection and its relation to inspired action and seeking pleasure in each moment.
