Look at what Deepak Chopra, a medical doctor himself, has to say about solving the mysteries of life:
“The body’s wisdom is a good entry point into the hidden dimensions of life, because although completely invisible, the body’s wisdom is undeniably real-a fact that medical researchers began to accept in the mid-80′s.
The former view was that the brain’s capacity for intelligence was unique.
But then signs of intelligence began to be discovered in the immune system, and then in the digestive system. In both these systems, special messenger molecules could be observed circulating through every organ, bringing information to and from the brain, but also functioning on their own”.
-from The Book of Secrets, Deepak Chopra
This is exactly what has drawn me, in my own growth to develop, not only more mental and emotional acuity but also a better awareness of what my body is attempting to guide me toward.
The body’s wisdom has been proven to operate faster than either mental or emotional reaction or evaluation. So when I’m wanting to change or manifest faster, I check in with my physical body to work with any “thought” or “emotion” that is dragging things down.
The question I’ve practiced is “what does my body need right now, in this moment”. Then when I determine whether I need rest, relaxation, restoration, to free my breathing, time in nature, or stretching, I find that my creativity and problem solving abilities engage and answers flow easily to me.
How is your body trying to help you this week?
The 6-month Be Your Own Coach Program is your ticket to learning the skills and tools to align yourself. No need for a guru, you can coach yourself.
Lynne Twist, in her beloved book, The Soul of Money, writes:
“When you know with certainty that things can be, not just different but, entirely resolved, you engage in the work in a more fundamental way. You don’t wonder “if”. You determine “how to”. You look at root causes. You make different choices”.
These are the questions that she says she used in her work with the Hunger Project, the organization that just doesn’t accept making the problem better, but is committed to solving the problem completely:
“Who do I need to be to fulfill on the commitment I’ve made”?
“What kind of human being do I need to forge myself into to make this happen”?
“What resources do I need to be willing to bring to bear in myself and my colleagues and in my world”?
Thank you Lynne, for those brilliant, connecting questions!
Interestingly, none of those questions are “what should I do” questions. Lynne goes on to claim that you simply can’t fail if you live from the space of those “being” questions.
Ending World Hunger is a larger than usual undertaking, would you not agree? So what larger undertaking is alive in your world? And what might happen as you consider Lynn’s questions in regard to your own undertaking?
I’d love to hear about your dreams and what begins to show up as you hold these questions for yourself in your own life.
