And when a person can become of aware this bodies and how to fully integrate them, then they are well on the way to self-empowerment.
You see, most of us only focus or are aware of only one of these bodies at a time. But when we can develop a practice to align and strength all our bodies, then we are on to journey to becoming a master of our destiny, or as the last two lines in the poem Invictus tell us “I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.”
Here is a brief overview of our four bodies:
The physical body relates to self-healing. Physiological symptoms indicate conflicts within the physical body. Factors such as diet, nutrition, exercise, sleep and fasting promote healthy cells, organs and physiological functioning’s. Living in alignment with your personal constitution promotes self-healing. Focusing, visualization, proper breathing and meditation allow positive energy (“prana” or “qi”) to flow through all parts of your physical body.
The mental body speaks to your level of self-confidence. We need self-confidence to be all we can be in life. A healthy mental body gives us clarity, concentration, will power, discipline and joy in all our thoughts, words and deeds. To achieve this, we need to review and enhance our identity, beliefs and values, capabilities, attitudes, behaviors and environment (inner and outer).
The emotional body is a key gateway to vitality. It addresses self-awareness. Clearing emotional reactivity and unresponsiveness allows for full emotional expression of genuine, heartfelt feelings. This self-awareness creates happiness within, and strong healthy relationships without. This promotes an abundant life on all levels. What ever you were feeling during the day today or when you were calling in…that was your emotional body
The spiritual body addresses the aspect of self-unity with all that is. It’s really the difference between being your soul essence rather than doing what you’ve been programmed to do. Ancient wisdom asserts that lack of unity within the spiritual body is the origin of all illness. The spiritual body–while being the most pervasive, important and immortal body–is nonetheless the least recognized today.
These bodies are always connected, although we often don’t realize it.
Now image, living your soul essence with vitality and self-confidence that produces self-healing…WOW!!! I’d call that self-empowerment wouldn’t you?
The problem most of us spend way to much time on the physical or emotional bodies, and mainly NOT in a good way.
We can’t work on one and forget the others. We ARE these four bodies…all the time. There is never time that you are not these four bodies.
By creating a program that develops physical strength, mental strength, emotional strength and spiritual strength you’ll be self-empowered to create a life of power, purpose, passion with perseverance.
