The human body is one of the greatest marvels of creation.
It is so close to us that we often take its magic for granted!
Spend some time contemplating the groundbreaking work your body accomplishes every moment and you may just find a renewed sense of appreciation for it.
Your body is bubbling with intelligent life!
You are able to experience this beautiful creation, thanks to your body.
Are you able to see the vivid colours around you?
Say thanks to your eyes.
Are you able to smell the fresh rain-kissed mud?
Say thanks to your nose.
Are you able to eat and drink?
Say thanks to your digestive system.
Do you walk, run or dance?
Express gratitude to your legs.
Are you able to understand and process the information you are reading here?
Express gratitude to your brain.
The list can go on and on….
Every part, organ and system in your body works tirelessly to keep you alive and well.
It is hard to even comprehend how the body manages to accomplishes such a feat!
The body is not just a mechanical system. We may be so used to its presence that we begin to view and treat it like a machine. In truth, the body is a brilliant work of science and art and it deserves love and care from the one inhabiting it.
Take a minute each day to express your appreciation for your body.
Send love to your body.
Do whatever it takes to support your body. No excuses!
Eating a wholesome diet, exercising, taking time to rest well – all of these are common sense but can feel like a big deal to achieve in today’s fast-paced world.
Who wants to spend time connecting to the body when there are more important things to do?
But remember you are able to do the more ‘important’ things only because your body is supporting you.
All it takes is a twisted ankle or swollen eye to appreciate the remarkable gift of good health the body strives to maintain in each moment.
When you begin to recognise the invaluable contribution made by your body, you develop a love and reverence for it. Neglecting or abusing it in any way becomes impossible. Wellness practices like Reiki and meditation can also help you connect with your body.
The body is a gift of the Universe to you.
Honour it. Bless it. Love it!
