Celebrate the Magic of and Integrated You
When Body, Heart, Mind and Soul are Connected and Aligned
By Dr. Judy Scher
Many of us have a hunger to live from a more awakened place. One of the quickest ways to live there sustainably is to embrace full integration between our body, heart, mind and soul. But what does that mean?
After a recent talk I gave, an elderly woman came up to me and said, “I’ve done a lot of work on myself over the years – heart, mind, and soul – but I think I’ve left out the body piece. I have Parkinson’s and I wonder if my body can actually heal from this.”
As you begin to truly heal, you learn to ask questions that will help you move toward a new awareness of integration. The question isn’t: Can my body heal from my Parkinson’s? The question instead becomes: Can my Parkinson’s help heal me? Instead of rejecting what is going on within your body and life, you begin to learn to embrace what is going on, and receive the wisdom conveyed. This doesn’t mean you become passive in your healing. On the contrary, by consciously accepting where you are, you become more powerfully involved. When you accept where you truly are – right here, right now, in the present moment – you are on your way to discovering what choices are available to you as an empowered player in your own healing and well being.
What is the cost to not learning what you are made of and who you truly are? What is the cost of not discovering how to deeply listen no matter what is going on? How is your life expressing that now? Where is your focus? Is it on where you have been, or is it on where you want to go? Is it focused on what is not working, or is it focused on what you want to manifest, how you want to be – to create, express, and dream?
In order to move forward, you have to learn to bring all of you along – including the parts of you that have been rejected, traumatized, abused and/or violated. Our body remembers everything that has gone on in our lives. What is stored in the body is pre-cognitive, outside of our conscious awareness. Learning how to access the body’s wisdom – by changing your behavior and making new choices that honor who you truly are – will lead to a profound connection and alignment with all the various parts of you. Gaining this greater and broader perspective will give you the ability to see life from a completely different vantage point.
To paraphrase Donald Epstein, from the book, Healing Myths, Healing Magic: “Myth: Being highly evolved means no longer having negative emotions. Magic: You evolve as you become aware of the different parts, energies, and relationships of your bodymind. You heal as all of your parts share their stories with one another without judgment. You transform as you experience the energy and tension that has been isolated and ignored. There is no such thing as a ‘negative’ emotion; there is only information and energy that is now made available for you to heal.”
The alignment of body, mind, heart, and soul doesn’t come from being in a place of perfection; it comes from a place where we are able to see ourselves as we truly are, entering into pure presence with all of our parts. When all of our parts are no longer separated from each other, energy is liberated, and this energy helps springboard us into an awakened knowing. New information flows through us with a perceptual lens that says Aha!
