How does body, mind and soul fit together?
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.
The Goal – What is my ‘state of being’?
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.
When in alignment we:
- 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 goal is to harmonise your state of being so that you can effortlessly create the life that you want. Here’s how the body, mind and soul fits together…
The Whole Picture – What creates my state of being?
There are components of the body, mind and soul that contribute to the flow of energy at each level. And there are ‘bridging mechanisms’ which contribute to the overall balance and flow of energy between each level. In other words, there are things that we do in each moment that facilitate or go against our natural flow. Here’s an overview:
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.
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 ablity 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.
And finally, 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.
