Harmonizing Body, Mind and Spirit

by Judith Pennington -

Speaking and Listening To Our Bodies:

One of the most fascinating stories I've ever heard came from a psychic development teacher who had worked with a man waiting in a hospital to have both feet amputated. The psychic, speaking with the man by phone, wasn't told about this, but intuitively heard his feet complain that he never let them rest.

She told the man what his feet said, and the man, knowing this to be true, quickly promised to change his ways. His exhausted, but now hopeful feet began to heal immediately and within days healed entirely.

I read an equally amazing story about an elderly tabby cat, Richie, on the verge of death from a large malignant tumor between his eyes.

The veterinarian's acupuncture treatments did nothing until used to attune Richie to the cosmos. Richie's owner, supporting this effort, called in an animal communicator who taught the cat, with his agreement, to visualize the shrinking of the tumor. One week later, to the veterinarian's astonishment, the tumor began to shrink and the next week disappeared.

Stories like these, told by honest, intelligent people, shift our perceptions of reality, don't they? We are taught that reason and verbal communication lift us above other creatures, who therefore must not be able to think or feel.

Yet, if the divine consciousness of love exists within every cell of our bodies, and everything within and outside of us is connected, then everything must be conscious.

Quantum physics, brain wave research, animal studies and bioacoustics, which heals by restoring the body's missing frequencies, are repeatedly proving this.

We can simply feel the connectedness, can't we, when we go out into nature? We relax, rejoice and receive the insights needed; nature confides her healing secrets through both our ordinary and intuitive senses.

Over the past year, while beginning to listen to and honor the voice of my body, I've grown visibly healthier and more intuitively aware that everything in Creation is an aspect of the divine, each singing "a song of glory," as Edgar Cayce, the great psychic-healer, put it.

My still, small voice chimes in that nature is a living organism embodying every aspect of consciousness: her whispering wind, musical waters, stormy mountaintops and flowered meadows comprise a body-temple calling us to balance, peace and love for All That Is. Here is the harmony sought by each of us, an orchestration of many notes into a melodious symphony of consciousness.

How do we harmonize our own aspects? 

We need only listen to each individual note--body, mind and heart--so that these may naturally move into a vibrant, resonant chord felt and heard throughout the body of Creation.

Our souls live and breathe in our body-temples, which seek purity and wholeness. Each body, given a voice, will say whether we are honoring or dishonoring it. Only close your eyes and ask whether this food, drink, word or deed, given out or received, brings good or ill to self or another.

The body, mind, heart and soul, when asked this question, will each speak its truth.

If you don't get an answer right away, ask again. Trust the answer to come and it will. Perhaps it already does come to you without asking. If not, your asking will enable it to speak in warning or in joy, in perfect timing. So we grow in ourselves and resonate with our light-filled world of beauty and order.

When we call upon our thoughts, feelings and body sensations to guide us into harmony and peace, we open fully to the spiritual intuition which exists to comfort and guide our soul growth.

In listening to the voice of the soul, we begin to receive impressions through the web of life connecting us with animals, plants, nature spirits, angels and every other aspect of the Greater Whole, whether seen or unseen.

For peace to begin with me, it must be in harmony with the Oneness of all creation, so that each note may give and receive in equal measure. Only in this musical cooperation will we have a vibrant body-temple, happy families, healthy governments and global peace.
