These days of transitions are surely interesting: Up one day and down the next; in the money one week, broke the next; total comprehension one moment, not a clue the next.
How do you cope with it?
Most of us tend to go out of body. We deal with the day-to-day stuff, sure enough. But when it comes to being present and aware, totally in charge of our lives, we just aren’t available. In fact, a large group of us–yes, even the “meta-people”, are electing to float in astral space, than to be present in the physical.
If you are not understanding my meaning, try these exercises:
- Sit quietly for five minutes only paying attention to how your body feels. Do your shoes pinch your feet? Is your waistband too tight? Are you breathing shallowly or in the full abdomen? Are there any aches or pains? Take stock of your body parts…Check in on the liver: what is it saying? Are your lungs in good working order? Are you on good terms with your heart?
- Now, go to the pile of bills or papers you’ve been collecting. Look at them. Act on them. Make a plan for payment. Make phone calls concerning the bills, if need be. File your papers. Organize or throw away. Take charge of that all important area of your life. This may take several hours. But it helps get you in your body.
If you have trouble staying in the task, or you let your mind wander in other directions, then you probably are living most of your life out of body.
Usually, a major event that is difficult to deal with, sorrowful or extremely painful will throw you out of body. It’s the ultimate way of disconnecting with the thing that is difficult. Over a period of time, it’s important to deal with the situation. Then you are present and physically aware again. But many of us keep finding ways of not dealing.
You may recognize someone around you that is very spacey or in “la-la land”. I’ve heard the discription “she is airy-fairy”. That person has successfully disconnected with physical reality.
Some may argue they are striving to be more spiritual and connected with the Spirit Realm. But my question is this: Why bother being in the physical body? Haven’t we agreed to experience the third dimension? Aren’t we spirit–being humans?
Then it is important to blend the three aspects of self: body, mind and spirit. We become a whole person, perceiving reality–totally perceiving reality.
