Everyone walks around in their body 24/7 yet know very little or think it’s too complicated to figure out. I’m supposed to know something about my car, my house, the grocery store, my money and food, drugs, how to drive, the highway system, office politics, and the holidays, but knowledge about my body, or the care of it? That is someone else’s job; the physician.
Isn’t that a little suspicious?
I am in my body and Mind 24/7…but someone else knows more than me about how I work? I’m an individual. No one is exactly like me. Everyone is unique. A doctor, a shrink, a counselor…knows MORE than you? Because…they’re smarter?
Do you know your own house, clothes closet, car, and garage pretty well? But you’re not in those 24/7.
Do you know your own kids pretty well? But you’re not with them 24/7.
Do you know your way to work? But you don’t make that trip 24/7.
Where is your liver in your body? Where are your kidneys? Where is your pancreas?
Where is your underwear drawer? Where are your kids? Where is your bank?
What’s in your blood? Where is blood made in the body? What vitamins and minerals are essential to the function of your brain?
Take ownership. You own a car, maybe a home, things, a bank account-all superficial. The most important thing you have is a body and thus a Mind. No doctor, pastor, priest, or teacher knows more about you than you do. I feel it’s just as important for small children to learn basic anatomy and all the functions of the body along with reading and writing. They need to understand early on how the cells of their body work, what’s in them and what’s not in them. It’s not that hard and it’s essential to understand your own nature so you can be empowered to heal yourself as your grow. You learn to brush your teeth, get dressed, walk, read, write, speak, and take care of your own body. You know how to balance your bank account, pay bills, do chores, and heal!
If anyone is more interested in basic anatomy or even what you can do to deal with viruses and colds with herbs, meditation, etc., let me know. I may start a little educational series on here. As a Reiki master and Master Herbalist, I don’t approach the body the way Prevention Magazine or WebMD does. I promise you that.
