Be kind to your bodies

Treat your bodies well dear ones, for they are the vehicles, the classroom, and the manifestation of your spirit in human form. So many of you take better care of your cars, your houses, or your possessions than your own body. Your body, luckily is very forgiving. Your body does not require 'special' diets, products, or treatments, other than what it dictates. If you begin to develop a relationship with your body, it will tell you what it requires for its greatest health and well being.

To try to reshape and control the body is fine, but do so with love, gentleness, and a willingness to listen to the body's desires as well. If you want to lose weight, don't criticize the body. Instead become quiet in your mind and heart and see what 'weight' your soul is carrying first. Are you taking on the weight of the world? Are you bearing a burden of unforgiveness, or sadness. Handle the emotional and spiritual weights first, then thank your body for bringing this to your attention and ask it to guide you in releasing what it is you want to release. You may just be surprised that when you treat your body as your best friend, it begins to respond in kind.

To heal your body go within and ask it what it is trying to teach you. Your body is not your adversary. It will suffer all manner of ills to help you learn a lesson. And while it is true that genetics, environmental factors, and substances here upon your planet earth, in a physical sense can certainly contribute to and trigger illness, there are also and always spiritual factors to take into account. Why is it one person gets sick in the office while another remains well? You can blame the genetics or the immune system, and while that is true on one level you can also see that maybe this person never rests unless they are sick, or maybe they were raised to believe they are prone to illness. Maybe they get positive attention at home when ill. Maybe it is the only time a giving soul allows themselves to receive. There are so many reasons one's body can get off balance. Rather than judging or guessing, ask your body to help you understand its messages.

In this fashion you can love an illness to death. You can, along with conventional medical treatments, give gratitude to a cancer for the lessons it is bringing and thereby heal the spiritual component of the illness. When your tummy aches, you can ask what you have trouble stomaching in the rest of your life. If your feet hurt, are there fears of standing tall, or putting your foot down. These are simply excamples dear friends - we would rather that you talk to your own bodies to learn from their wisdom.

There are some people upon the planet earth who are not meant to physically heal from their ills. Their soul set up lessons to be learned and lessons to be shared with others via these conditions. And yet by surrendering to the condition, these souls often become very powerful teachers for others - they teach love, compassion, gratitude, acceptance, and are often angels of grace. It is so very important never to judge oneself or another, but rather only to understand the relationship between your body and your soul.

Above all, dear friends, stop criticizing yourselves. You are all so very beautiful to us. Whether you are tiny or large, whether your complexion is smooth or mottled, whether you are a star athlete or a crippled person, you are all gorgeous beyond compare. If you could see the souls living in these bodies as we do, you would never ever again judge a book by its cover, and you wouldn't think to critisize the housing for your own beautiful soul. By all means, enjoy your bodies dear friends, treat them well, develop a friendship with them, and listen to their wisdom.
