During recent years, I’ve been taking esoteric healing courses through Universal Medicine. Initially I did it because I could feel that I needed to heal things in my body that western medicine wasn’t able to help me with. Eventually, as I healed the more pressing matters, I became interested in how the body works. I never was a very good science student at school, saying it was too difficult for me when perhaps it was just being presented to me in a very boring way! So when I became interested in the body, it was like starting from the beginning. Where is the spleen? What does it do? How big are the lungs?
Then I discovered that there were multiple layers to the “What does it do?” component.
There was the actual mechanics of what a certain organ does, for instance the kidneys cleanse or filter about 130 liters of blood per day resulting in 1 or 2 liters of urine. The kidney’s also have an energetic component to what they do. They are the organs that generate the energy, the fuel, that runs the whole vehicle (the body.) If our kidneys are depleted, the vehicle hasn’t got the ‘get up and go’ that it needs. If we ignore what the body is telling us (we are tired), this will lead to worsening conditions such as exhaustion or chronic fatique (similar to running out of petrol in a car.)
Have you heard the phrase ‘Whole Body Intelligence’? There are recent studies that now show that the body reacts to stimulus BEFORE the mind even registers what is happening. You can Google these experiments. But this has been part of the curriculum of the esoteric medicine courses I have been taking for several years. The individual organs each have their own job or intelligence. All together the whole body has an intelligence that is constantly feeding us information. Are you cold? Are you hungry? Do you need to take a wee? Do you need to get some sleep?
And even beyond these basic messages, supporting us to care for ourselves, we are being given another level of communication from our body.
To give you an example, one day this week I suddenly found myself with a stomach-ache around mid-afternoon. Not something I have to contend with normally. I was puzzled, I hadn’t eaten anything new or different and I assumed it would go away.
But in fact, the stomach-ache got much worse throughout the night. The next morning it was more intense then ever. I was by now in serious discomfort. So I had to tap into my Whole Body Intelligence to find out what this sudden stomach- ache was trying to tell me.
Most of us know that the stomach is the organ that we digest food with. Energetically it also represents digesting life. So if we are not accepting things that are happening in our life, we are not digesting them. But wait, there’s more.
There are three points of acceptance in the stomach
It didn’t take me long to understand what my stomach (ache) was trying to tell me.
I have just started this website for the purpose of blogging. I have ‘thought’ about doing this for years. But it takes courage. Even though there is the possibility that no one is going to read my blog, there is also the possibility that several people may read my blog. What if they don’t like what I have to say? What if they don’t agree? What if I look foolish?
So even though I had ‘talked myself into’ creating a website and getting a blog started, underneath my coat of bravado, I was not accepting my own worth. I wasn’t accepting that what I had to say had any real value. Because I wasn’t accepting that I have a unique role to play in God’s plan for humanity, I had a digestion problem.
As soon as I saw what the real problem was (self acceptance in the world), it began to abate. Within a couple of hours, the ‘ache’ had gone. My stomach is still a little sore. A nice reminder that I am learning a new language, one based on Whole Body Intelligence.
