The Body Is The Subconscious Mind.
So says Candace Pert, who wrote a book by that title. I confess, I haven't read the book, but the title is outstanding.
And so very true.
Here is what the woods told me this morning:
Resistance, pain, disturbed peace, etc, in any form, means the body is experiencing feelings of being threatened. In this way, resistance, pain, disturbed peace is a Messenger. The body is experiencing a reenactment of a painful experience, and reacting.
It is not (or, rarely) about whatever is actually happening in that specific moment that is the problem. When those feelings are activated, it is because something is whisper-touching an original, core wound. It is (generally, usually) a call to heal the underlying energetic pattern - not to change anything about the specific circumstances that - on the surface - appear to be causing the pain.
Disturbed peace in the body is an invitation. The Messenger is carrying an invitation to heal.
It is always up to us what we do with that invitation. We can confuse the messenger with the message, and fight with the surface circumstances, and stay stuck, or we can see the Messenger for the invitation that it carries, and choose to heal.
But...don't confuse the Messenger with the message. It is always about the Messenger, it is never about the message.
Thank you, nature.xoxoxo
