Physical Alignment With Your Higher Self

It may seem hard to believe but your Higher Self wants you to be happy and to feel connected all the time. It wants to remain in constant contact with your Higher Power and therefore in a constant state of available peace. In recovery we are becoming more and more mindful that we must make spiritual growth a priority. Unfortunately most of us have been conditioned to believe that suffering and hardship are a normal part of life to be endured, something that we may have almost come to expect. At some point we have likely learned to turn even minor events into major dramas that fill our minds and most of our time. Sadly the belief that difficulty and drama are necessary will only continue to make more of the same appear in our lives and draw us away from the Source of Serenity.

Believe it or not your Higher Self can find value and even joy in every experience. It knows exactly what you need and it is constantly exposing you to the lessons this life has to offer. We are really meant to be students here, witnesses that can stand back and observe the drama that plays out around us while maintaining our personal sense of wellbeing. This state of wellbeing stems from living in alignment with the Higher Self. One of the simplest ways to understand and maintain this alignment is through a healthy relationship with your body. When you become familiar with how your body feels in different situations, and why it feels that way, you will begin to notice clearly when the disconnect is taking place. Both positive and negative feelings are expressed in some way through the physical body. Stress often reveals itself through a feeling of constriction in the chest, uneven breath, upset in the belly, tension in the muscles and sometimes pain in the head, neck and shoulders. Most challenges in the body itself point to a need for redirecting our thoughts and deepening the spiritual connection.

You can begin to connect with your Higher Self by getting to know what your body feels like when you are in alignment. We have all felt peace, true happiness and joy, at least briefly, but usually we are too busy enjoying the moment to pay close attention to the physical sensations and qualities that express spiritual harmony. These sensations are not the same as the feelings that come from an outside physical or chemical source. There is a clear distinction that stems from the purity of the spiritual experience recognizing the entirely positive energy that comes from the Source. When you become familiar with specific responses in the body you can work toward intentionally redirecting your thoughts before they start directing your emotions, your behavior and every aspect of your health.

Take a little bit of time over the next few days to notice and maybe even journal on this topic. Start to pay more attention to the way your thoughts affect your physical state. Focus some prayer and meditation on asking your Higher Power for guidance, experiment by asking your Higher Self questions and noticing the way your body responds to the answers. As you realign with your Higher Self and stay connected with the peace of your Higher Power every circumstance can eventually be seen as a chance to grow. Give it some practice and let me know what happens!  ~ Jane
