The Body, Mind and Soul work as a system of energy. We connect our body, mind and soul to keep energy flowing within us. This energy flow can be abundant or restricted, depending on our ‘state of being’ in each moment and it changes constantly.
Our state of being is our overall feeling of health and wellness. It refers to how balanced we feel on all levels of our being. Whether we are happy or sad, sick or well, disconnected from spirit or not, we are either in or out of alignment with who we really are. The goal is to harmonise your state of being so that you can effortlessly create the life that you want. Well-Being encompasses all our parts, not just the physical body.
When our emotions are in turmoil or our mind is bombarded with obsessive
thoughts our health is compromised. It is important to create balance in your life by nurturing your whole person, which includes spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical needs.
When we are in alignment
- Experience joy in everything we do
- Treat others with love and respect
- Treat ourselves and our bodies with love and respect
- Have a sense of purpose and universal service
And when we are out of alignment, we experience the exact opposite of all of these things!
The body, our outer shell, is a product of both the mind and soul and how it is cared for on a daily basis. The body’s magic formula for survival –sleep, diet, environment and exercise – can be used to prolong life or shorten it. You can learn and apply ways to sustain and energise your body – it’s your choice.
The next level is the mind, the interactive mechanism between the body and soul. The mind registers and filters emotion (the language of the soul) and registers nerve impulses generated by the body. The degree of communication between the body and mind, and soul and mind depends on your ability to manipulate your mind to work for you. When the mind is functioning as intended, it is self-aware, focused and quiet as required. So the mind has two choices: to block out sensation or to listen to it. If the mind is smart, it listens.
The soul is ultimately responsible for giving the body its life force. In subtle ways, it guides and directs our behaviour and actions in the physical form. When the soul chooses to leave the physical body, the body perishes. The soul is driven by wisdom, love and universal service.
