"Transformation is through the body, not away from it. This is why no true master has ever advocating fighting or leaving the body, although their mind-based followers often have." -Eckhart Tolle
Previously I have written about the difference between knowledge and knowing. I shared my experience with Eckhart Tolle and how the only true way to "know" something, is to experience it.
What are you noticing...knowing?
This week I encourage you to become curious about what and how your physical body is trying to communicate with you.
I often say our physical body is a portal to what is really happening deep within. By deep within I mean beyond the mind and it's thoughts/story/narrative.
For example, ever notice how physical pain causes us to "do" something when it no longer becomes tolerable?
It's the moment when we feel "we have had enough of feeling tired/achy/lonely" (i.e.: suffering) and decide it's time to make a change. Time for transformation!!!
Perhaps we decide to become conscious of our food habits and choose to eat better.
Or, maybe it's time to lace up those sneakers and exercise.
And for some it's time to ease up on the physical body and get a massage or finally try yoga, etc.
And still for others perhaps there's a sense of the inner body that feels "off". Anxious, afraid, alone...endless cycle of emotional up and down.
Why does connecting with the body matter?
From a practical sense, we need it in order to live so why not take care of it the best we can?
On a deeper level, the physical body is a powerful doorway for us to access wisdom and therefore transformation. Can't change what you don't know/want to know :)
And while some wisdom traditions may teach denying the body and/or ignoring the body, in my experience, it is the exact opposite. We must pay attention and learn. Then apply those lessons in the form of action.
How do we access the physical body, in a deeper sense?
Yet one thread runs through all of it and that is the practice of presence...awareness. A.K.A - paying attention.
Some of us pay attention quite naturally and either choose to take action or not. Doing nothing is also a choice :)
Others of us engage in movement practices - yoga/running/walking outside/dance... to help us get in touch/feel the inner body.
And still others rely on meditation, massage, or other forms of energy healing to assist in bring us into deeper awareness.
There's no right or wrong way.
And the "way" may change over time as you change. Nothing is permanent in this world of form. Ha!
As I say-- the only "wrong" way to meditate is simply to not do it all.
And so it is with life and dealing with change. We will either consciously choose to listen to our body or not. Regardless, life / transformation happens anyway. We can embrace it (peaceful path) or fight it (suffering path).
I don't know about you. I rather the peaceful path.
As we approach the final few months of the year...and as the Holidays draw near... it's the perfect time to pause and make time to care for body, mind, and spirit.
While it may feel like life is moving fast and we don't have "enough" time to get it all done...this is actually the best time to slow down and nourish ourselves.
When we are intentional about how we want to live our life...end our year...refreshed, renewed, and in joy perhaps, we make choices to support it.

Full Moon Release Ritual with Stephanie
When the moon is full it's a wonderful time to release what we've been carrying that no longer serves.
Yes, it takes courage to let go and take a stand for the life we want! We will be challenged. We will face obstacles. The initiation from child to adult requires we do the work, get the support, and use the tools.
If not for ourselves, then for our children and their children.
And life... it's an awe inspiring cycle of birth and death, creation and destruction, beginnings and endings, openings and closings. Since we are life, when we consciously choose to let go of old ways that need to "die", we create space for new ways that are waiting to be birthed into being. It's a celebration really!!!
Enjoy this shamanic full moon release ritual recording to help you be you.

Summer Self Care by Stephanie
“What you do for yourself-any gesture of kindness, any gesture of gentleness, any gesture of honesty and clear seeing toward yourself-will affect how you experience your world.” -Pema Chodron
Nourish Body, Mind & Spirit
Summer is the perfect time to slow down and notice where you need to be "fed", aka, practice self care. Nobody can do this for us. And if we don't do this for ourselves, we risk becoming resentful, contracted, and unhappy! We must feed ourselves in order to feed others.
As I spoke about last week, we are in charge of our own happiness and this includes on going self care. Give yourself permission to do what makes you feel good. You're worth it.
Top 5 Picks to Nourish Body, Mind & Spirit:
Massage - From therapeutic and deep tissue massage to relaxing massage, it's one of the oldest healing modalities. Massage can relax muscles, soothe aches and pains, release energy blockages, rejuvenate body, mind and spirit.
Yoga - Yoga promotes inner and outer health & well-being. In addition to improving physical health: flexibility, strength, balance, pain management, yoga is a powerful tool in personal transformation. Yoga has been shown to decrease stress, helping with anxiety and PTSD, while improving our mood and outlook on life.
Meditation- We get 2 choices: medicate or meditate. From managing stress, anxiety, and PTSD to cultivating a deeper sense of inner peace and well-being, meditation can help.
Energy Healing - Chakra Balancing is an energetic healing technique that works holistically on the body, mind and spirit from the inside out. Major systems of the body are restored with life-force energy to promote body's natural ability to heal. Chakras will be cleared and re-balanced so you feel lighter and empowered.
Reading List - Self-enrichment is one of the keys to growth.
