I feel the spirit, but can I embody being the spirit? In the previous blog, you were questioned as to whether you are living in the spiritual realm or the physical? This is really asking if you are working toward earning physical pleasures or spiritual gratification.
When you compete, are you competing to win first place or the fulfillment of accomplishing a task? When you work, are you working for your paycheck and to build up your bank account or doing a job that feeds your soul and brings you joy? When you help a friend, are you hoping that they will help you in return, or are acting altruistically? Know that there is no right or wrong to your motives for doing anything. You are not a bad person if you are living more in the physical world than the spiritual. The only difference is that you may not find as much peace and happiness when you focus on worldly rewards.
When you live in the physical world, nothing will ever be enough. You will never have enough money in your bank account, you will never have won enough competitions, and if you do a task hoping for something in return more than likely you will consistently be disappointed and discouraged with other people. Does this sound familiar to you? Living with disappointment is no way to live. It would be a lot like the movie Ground Hog Day with Bill Murray. That is a great movie to emphasize the message being conveyed today.
What I encourage you to do is have a balance in your spiritual and physical motives. As you complete a task, ask yourself is this for the benefit of my spirit or my physical world? Make a checklist to evaluate why you are doing things. Try to be a spirit here on earth more than a physical body moving about the earth. Maybe your level of happiness will increase tenfold. It’s worth a try.
You are a spirit in a physical body on a mission to show the world love in your own way. ~Your Inner Guide
Voyage to HEAL Weekly Task
Stretch: Last week we grounded ourselves and felt the earth beneath us. This week, we journey to the crown of the head to receive enlightenment from God to know our soul’s purpose as a spirit here on earth. Choose from one of the options below to apply a gentle pressure to the top of your head.
- Interlace your fingers and gently rest them on the top of your head
- Bending at the waist, lean the top of your head against a wall. Feel free to hold onto the wall if needed for balance.
- Keeping your knees bent, lay in bed with your head against the headboard. Gently push with your legs to apply a lite pressure into the top of your head.
*Remember never to force! If this causes pain, stop.
Exercise: Raise the top of your head up toward the sky. Hold there for 10 seconds. Repeat this exercise at least 8 times or whenever you think of it. As always, get your core engaged.
Habitual Change: Make sure your computer screen is at eye height so you can look straight ahead at it. This will tremendously decrease neck and lower back pain.
Perspective Enlightenment: I will act in my spiritual realm as I walk this earth.
Journal Option: Look at the picture below. Why would that person be climbing the mountain? Think of a physical and a spiritual reason? Which came easier for you? How have I lived in the physical world? What have I done as a spirit on the earth?
This week’s blog coincides with the message of Week 7 of the Voyage to HEAL, The Voice of God. Please take the time to hold the stretch above while listening to this meditation. Now is the time to start or continue to HEAL. Come along on the Voyage to HEAL.
Godspeed on your Voyage to HEAL learning Healthy Everyday Activities for Life.
