At this point in my work, I have had the beautiful gift of being able to assist and support thousands of individuals from many different walks of life. What has become increasingly more evident is how true health is really not as it seems.
The majority of people who are portrayed as healthy in the eyes of society, such as athletes, humans with big muscles, or slim people, are in fact not of health at all. But rather they have physically conditioned their bodies, in order to function and perform a certain task most optimally. This is why we "train"...to do the thing. Rarely does a person train for life, in life. Because in order to do that, one would need to have full awareness of how a life actually functions.
Tension is the biggest killer...
When we live and use our bodies unconsciously, without internal awareness or respect for our vessel, tension begins to creep in on a habitual cellular level, riddling the physical body and energetic system.
From this point, energy circulation and breathing becomes chronically obstructed. The area of tension begins to shut down and die-off over time. The result is deeply corrosive chronic health issues, and a person lacking aliveness in their being. Due to the current lifestyle, we are seeing more younger people than ever becoming senile, much earlier on in life.
Once I began to understand and experience the way of the body (the energetic interfacing within), I started to see the reality of health, and how far we have been driven away from it.
I have had many top level performers, teachers and athletes come to see me over the years, and in most cases the body was anything but healthy. Instead it had totally walled-off, acquiring the ability to undergo tremendous levels of sufferance, to the detriment of its own life-force. True health isn´t about how long you can run, or how heavy you can lift. It runs much deeper than that.
So many of these "fit" people are TOTALLY jammed up in their bodies. Sure they can run for miles, or lift the heaviest thing repeatedly, our do hours of yoga, but true vitality is severely lacking, as the body is not being totally lived in. Its not being heard. It’s not being committed to. It’s not being worshipped. It’s not being loved.
It is only being driven, pushed and whipped. When it cries? - pills are taken to dumb it down and shut it up. Fucking madness!
This is anti-life.
Another popular example are people who frequent the gym. They are generally doing so for 2 primary reasons: 1 - they assume it will make them internally healthy(partly true with many variables), and 2 - because in many instances they really dislike themselves and how they look.
The day we began valuing how we look above how we feel, was a sad sad day for the health of humanity.
The relationship many have with their body is; I must fix you, change you, and torture you, so I can feel a different way about you. This is a sickness.
Grown adults will go so far to avoid the natural progression of nature. So much so, that they will pay large sums of money to inject toxic matter into their faces, breasts and butts. Just to appear externally youthful to others.
We hold fear and disregard against the body, for doing the miraculous things that a body does naturally and beautifully...such as ageing. The self hatred linked to this behaviour is still far more dangerous than the injected materials.
Our bodies have been gifted to us via source. It has been entrusted into our care. And what do we do? Abuse it!
Without your body, life ceases to exist for you. Your body has come forth bearing thousands and thousands of years of cellular intelligence that is right there for you to start dropping into and pulling to the surface. It survives on oxygen, food and water...but it is powered by love - SELF love.
Learn to listen to your body!
The body knows so much more than your egoic mind will ever know. Regardless of what the question is, the body is always housing the answer. Your job is to get out of the way enough to hear it. You must learn how to be in it. You must grant it permission to be loud.
You must stop telling it what to do by forcing it to fulfil your minds conditioning. This is how people get sick. They spend their whole life living and dying by the mind...compromising their body, nature and spirit, in many cases to appease others.
Our minds are so very fragile. Your mind can convince you to go out, buy a knife, and slit your own throat with it. Why would you hand the responsibility of life over to something that causes you insane amounts of suffering?
True health is governed by how we sit within ourselves, and the depth of the relating we have with our own life-force energy.
As soon as I come into contact with another, the relationship they have with their body becomes real loud, real quick. In an instant.
If you are any bit switched on, you can immediately see how a person does their entire life, based on how they are occupying their body. You can see how the self-hatred manifests outward in everything they do. You can see all of the places where the shame and guilt has locked-up and shut-down. The pretending. The performing. Their house of fear and sadness. The body is screaming everything, out loud...always..
Unfortunately delusional bypassing of oneself is something I see very regularly within the new-age spiritual communities, and it is creates much ill-health.
The instructors and coaches can be even more worse off, as they have decided to hold themselves to an unrealistic level of spiritual haughtiness.
Once you detach a person from their own humanity, they can no longer move in health, which is how many people adopt their new spiritual identity. When we choose to only be conscious of the parts of ourselves which are most comfortable to do so with, the mind is free to make-up the rest on its own. People can miss the truth of themselves entirely.
This is why I speak about relentless self-enquiry/clarification work so much. A mind left unclarified is a menace to truth.
Once you can come to understand with any spiritual pursuit, that you do not practice the intelligence, but that you ARE the intelligence, it will direct your focus more internally. It will steer you back home, so you can figure out how to be with yourself, in the way that will unlock more of that which you already are.
Regardless of what spiritual practices you partake in(if any at all), none of it matters if you leave yourself in order to "do" it.
The remedy for dis-ease:
If someone has a headache, they take a pill. A sore neck, a pill. Stomach problems more drugs. None of this is helping or healing the bodies reasoning for creating this physical alarm. Instead it numbs the body. It pacifies the body´s ability to alert you when something needs your attention and love.
The headache is there because it’s calling your attention. It is letting you know the way you are moving is not in alignment. If you continue to ignore it and proceed with your avoidant madness...Chronic disease ensues; the result of chronic self abuse.
Love is always the medicine. But not the love that society talks about. That version of love is causing so much of the pain people experience. I am referring to a clear, conscious, and abundantly unconditional love, rooted in truth. Rooted in harmony with the universal laws of life.
To clarify...real love.
Love Of Self.
Learning to give deep love to oneself is the most powerful medicine available to humankind. Stress, tension, self hatred, constant unconscious bracing, is the leading cause of almost all disease in the body. It all stems from these ways of relating. People place way too much importance on diet with regards to disease. The foods you choose are just a symptom of your addictive & reactive conditioning, or a conscious choice via your own self-intelligence. The choice is yours.
Energy Needs To Circulate.
Once you begin blocking the energetic currency circulating through the system, which the system needs to be in aliveness...stagnancy, numbness and death begin to bleed itself into the physical tissues, tendons, and cellular make-up of the body, in all of the areas in which the individual has divorced from.
You should be so in tune with your body that you can drop your consciousness not only into the muscles and tendons to release them with your consciousness, but so sensitive that you can drop into your arteries, veins, and cellular structures, and interface with the specific areas in the ways which are needed for aliveness to return. This level of internal awareness will expand and deepen with commitment.
The body must be watched and followed in order to be alive, happy, healthy, and loved.
Imagine a child calling you from the other side of the park, asking you to watch her doing a cartwheel. “Look look, look at me doing a cartwheel”....but you never look. You ignore the calls. Because your more interested in your head-trip, scrolling on your phone to feed your minds desire for nonsense.
The more you ignore the her call for attention, the quieter she becomes. The child’s voice begins to give way, and the scream has now become a whisper. Her aliveness is withering away. You forget the child even exists. You forget the child has needs; a voice of its own.
For many people, the only time they come back to the awareness of the bodys voice, is when it is too late, the last breathes are pending, and life has been spent unconsciously.
Spiritual Bypassing & Developmental Trickery
Below is a story that repeats itself on an almost daily basis...
I recently had an internationally known Yogi come to see me for an energy session. She told me how she worships her body daily. She shared with me her 2 hour morning rituals of self love. She has practiced and dedicated her life to the yogic art form for 12 years now. She is a beautiful person and it was a gift to assist her.
But, as she was saying what she was saying, It was very evident that she was performing, and not just for me...but for herself. This is when things get dangerous, when we are tricking ourselves, unconsciously. She was frantically clutching onto huge amounts of grief in certain parts of her body, while other parts of her being had rarely if ever been visited consciously. She had spent the majority of her spiritual-pursuing doing the practices "perfectly", rather than allowingthe practices become and hold her.
She was using her dedicated practice to unconsciously avoid a whole lot of pain and distrust of self that was sitting within her. She felt like if she was to acknowledge its existence, that she wouldnt be a perfect enough person to help others. She would feel like a hypocrite.
Walking around in life fearfully hiding who you are for fear of not being perfect enough, is the status quo. It is deadly dangerous to true health. It is insidious, and will eat away at a persons body and energy.
10 minutes into our session, and she began to experience waves of energy shaking up what she was really running from. Her body jumped back into the drivers seat, intelligently, and began loudly letting out deep cries for close to an hour. Once all of her stagnancy and fear had been fully touched, met, clarified, expressed, and loved, the blissful aliveness/orgasmicness that is the womans nature, took her deeply into delicious feminine rejuvenation.
The reason I share this story, is to emphasise self-surrender, in everything you do. It is crucial for true health. Surrender to your truth. If you are in pain, sadness, trauma...surrender fully to it, and learn to be loving with all of your prickly parts. If you feel happy, ecstatic, excited...surrender fully to that also.
Surrendering to what is, is choosing to trust in life. Its choosing to allow life back in, to guide and assist you.
You are of life.
If you refuse to surrender to what is, it will eat away at you. It will pester you. It will evolve into something which will injure you over time. You will experience much fatigue. Being out of alignment is profoundly unhealthy to your entire existence.
The reason I do what I do is simple. To assist others in committing to every last delicious drop of themselves, in whatever way that may look. Because when someone commits to themselves, they are committing to divinity, and we sure as hell need more divinity right now.
We need more humans of intelligence. Of consciousness. Of healthiness. Of love.
Restoring true health.
I invite you to make contact with every last inch of your self, both internally and externally. Put your hands all over yourself. Be internal. Start to listen. This takes large amounts of commitment and discipline at first. A level which many I find arent interested in...especially with all of that shiny distraction happening over there on things such as social media.
But if you choose to really commit to your life, then I have some guidance which may be of help.
Be with every part of yourself which you hate, resent, dislike, feel shame towards. Be with your trauma.
Accept it is yours to deal with, and stop blaming everyone else for your current state of reality. Take full responsibility for the way you feel from this way forward. Because as soon as you place the blame externally, onto the bully, your abuser, your parents or friends, you no longer have the ability to heal yourself.
You must claim your pain to begin the process of healing.
How about all the ways you feel towards yourself?
Maybe its your nose, or the shape of your body, or your age, or the fact you think you are worthless, or not good enough. Maybe it is the new wrinkle you found under your left eye. Be with it. Stay with the hate, the shame, the sadness. Sit in it, with it.
Feel it, cry with it... Cry for it.
Hold it. Look at it. Give it every last piece of your attention until there is no hate left to feel, just acceptance. This acceptance transcends to love, and will restore aliveness and health back into that part of you which was once rotting.
I want to point out that you cannot just decide to accept something, when you clearly fucking hate it. The body doesnt function like that.
Acceptance is the RESULT of you feeling through what your dealing with, to the point there is nothing left to feel and you transcend it. This is why you cannot heal by avoiding. This is why you cannot reclaim your aliveness in any other way, other than moving directly through the storm.
Acceptance is the natural result of transcending. Its the desert.
From that point, love arrives on its own, as going into your storm is the epitome of self-love.
I really hope this article has brought you something of value, and if you would like further assistance through your process, thats what Im here for.
Know thyself. Love thyself. Deeply.
This is an invite to consciousness. This is an invite to love, in ways rarely committed to.
If you know of anyone who would benefit from reading this, please share and assist me in assisting others.
Happy new year and much love,
