Have you ever had someone say to you “get back in your body”, or “you are spinning”? We all can get overwhelmed or disconnect from our physical energy. If we are not in touch with our body and the energy that only being in a body creates, then we cannot implement the brilliant ideas that we receive.
It is said that depression is when we live in the past and anxiety is when we live in the future. Our bodies are affected by our mind not being present. We are more powerful when we live in the present and are fully in our bodies. Our minds are powerful instruments that can convince us that we can figure it all out in our heads. We can forget that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience and that we need our physical body to bring forth all the amazing spiritual information that we receive.
Have you ever noticed a highly spiritual and very connected individual who had the most brilliant inspirational ideas but did not have the energy to implement those ideas? If we live in our head, instead of being in our body and bringing the energy through our heart, it is much more difficult to manifest our inspirations.
The heart is where our physical energy and spiritual energy meets. Our heart is the gatekeeper to living a fully integrated and connected life. When our heart is open and energy flows freely from head to toe, manifestation of our desires is easy!
When you need or want to feel more grounded and present in your body try one of all of these tricks.
1. Laugh and laugh often. A good belly laugh will bring energy into your root and sacral chakra to help create foundation and creativity. By finding joy in simple pleasures or silliness it keeps the energy flowing in our body and brings back our childlike connection to spirit. Young children are very present in their bodies and laughter will help connect you deeper with yours.
2. Moving meditation. Combine your spiritual practice with some type of body movement. This can be yoga or going for a walk. Letting the energy flow through your body and connect all of your chakras as you unite with spirit allows the energy to flow more freely through you and out into the world.
3. Breathe deeply. Take a deep breath through your nose and hold it for as long as you can. Your breath is your life force. Feel that life force pulsing through your body connecting and refreshing every single cell. Then gently and completely release that breath exhaling out of your mouth. Exhale all that no longer serves you. Repeat this at least three times or as many times as you need to truly feel connected with your body.
Now you are connecting your spiritual inspiration with your body’s energy to manifest.
