The dictionary defines well-being (noun) as: “A contented state of being happy and healthy and prosperous.” I feel that this sums up our general aspirations for living. It certainly sounds great to me and really, who wouldn’t want this or something greater for themselves?
What I love about the word ‘well-being’ is the way it drips droplets of all-rounded wholeness of BEING. I can feel the happiness, the health and the prosperity. It is such a holistic word, and hidden within its semantic vibration all that is mental, physical, emotional and spiritual, it goes a long way to tick the boxes in the schools of Gestalt, Chinese Medicine, Meditation, Yoga and many more of the alternative healing therapies. It’s a word that personifies balanced harmony!
Who am I to be talking about well-being anyway? I am a traveller on the road of life just like you, undergoing my own awakening. I am a Woman, a Daughter, a Lover, a Goddess, an Intuitive Well-Being Facilitator and Divine Love in Physical Form. In my role as a Facilitator, I draw from my own personal experiences to weave together the information required and re-membered to align these aspects of the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual, for myself and others. As Eric Pearle states, “It is through healing others that we heal ourselves”.
Please also know that the notion of “healing” in no way implies that something is wrong. However, many have forgotten their true potency and greatness. There is a thread that runs through everything, weaving it together. For example, is not happiness said to be a state of mind? If so, then does not this cultivate health – both physical and mental? And is not your health your wealth? All is intricately interwoven and moving in synergy towards optimal integration and Well Being.
When you are WELL in your BEING, everything FLOWS! And you are BEING YOU in your entirety. Now, doesn’t that feel good and for what reason would you not want more of this yummyness?

So, what’s your body talk? How does your body talk to you? Are you aware that your body can talk, not only to you but with other bodies? No, I am not talking about body language or even non-verbal communication, in the context of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). I am talking about the language that our bodies use to communicate with us and other bodies and energies. For many, often their first conscious awareness of their body will be through the sensation of pain. Yes, for some strange reason this is usually when people actually become aware of their physical bodies, other than the thing they have to feed and perhaps wash daily. Until this time, many people remain totally disassociated with the one thing that is literally under their nose and closest too them. Not only is it ignored, but it is the receiver of much physical, emotional and mental abuse – usually self-inflicted, making it therefore more permissible.
I am very lucky to have always had an amazing, if until recently unidentifiable-as-that, connection with my body. I am not referring to physical appearance here, but rather to my body’s ability to perceive and receive information about situations, way and above that of the recognised biological five senses, although these are how ultimately information is filtered through. I grew up believing I was over sensitive and that this was a “bad” thing. Today, my work as an Energy Bodyworker has brought me full circle and to a deeper understanding and knowing of just how aware and conscious my body is. There is no doubt in my mind that my body has a consciousness of its own, separate from me. Just as you are separate and autonomous when out of your car, your car “belongs” to you and goes where you steer it, when you are driving, so our body is a vehicle for our Essence.
My personal breakthough in being conscious of my body as a separate life form, started way back with massage and reiki, however it was a body modality from Access Consciousness, called the BARS, that finally allowed me to fully embrace this concept and knowing. Applying this process has liberated my body and me from many limiting patterns, both good and not so good. Today, I know that my body has a consciousness of its own and that it is constantly sharing this information with me. It has been me that so often refused to receive it. Unconditionally in service to me, my body created symptoms in its attempt to share vital information with me. For example, experiencing indigestion after eating food that my body did not want or need, pain to indicate where I was cutting myself off from source energy or information, dis-ease to lovingly attempt to get through to me that something I was doing was not in my greater interest.
Today I constantly ask my body what it wants to do, eat, look like and I tell it as often as I can and remember too, how grateful I am for it. My body is an amazing receptor, a great satellite that is picking up information beyond the limitations of my mind and feeding it back to me. I learn a little more each day to be in awareness of this vast sensory information coming to me. I still experience intense energy (otherwise and usually misidentified as “pain”) that is sometime uncomfortable, as my physical body too has to adjust and expand and evolve. Remember that as my vehicle, my body has its own agenda and requires regular fuel and check-ups. Yes, I am a Spiritual Being having a physical experience, just as may body is a form of consciousness having its own experience, as we dance together.
The basic premise in NLP is that to understand your speaker, you need to understand the language he is using. The same applies to your body. So everywhere where you have misidentified and misapplied physical sensation as good or bad, rather than simply your body talk, would you be willing to destroy and uncreate that now please? What will it take for you to hear and understand you body talk?
Here is an except from Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now”, about transformation through the body. “The fact is that no one has ever become enlightened through denying or fighting the body or through an out-of-body experience. Although such an experience can be fascinating and can give you a glimpse of the state of liberation from the material form, in the end you will always have to return to the body, where the essential work of transformation takes place. Transformation is through the body, not away from it. This is why no true master has ever advocated fighting or leaving the body, although their mind-based followers often have.”
Have fun and en-joy-ment learning to understand and listen to your body talk!
Until recently, I saw abuse as something that others inflict on others. Either through physical acts or verbal and psychological abuse. Yet what about our own thoughts and emotions that we use towards and against ourself? What if when I consider myself unworthy, without value, invisible, too this or not enough that – what if this is in fact abuse of the Self? And what when we feel justified in doing this to ourself, simply because it is self-inflicted and we can pretend that we are not a victim?
So what does abuse have to do with value of worth? As has been explained by many of the visionaries today, when we declare “I Am ………..”, then all that is not THAT will surface to be honoured and released. Took me a while to get this, in particular with regards to abundance. Here I was declaring I Am Abundant and Abundance and guess what was showing up …………. everything that was not abundant and abundance. Did I like this, did this make me feel powerful and a creator? Nope, indeed. I ranted and raved, drove my friends insane and scared the abundance I was asking for away. Finally, I concluded that the Law of Attraction doesn’t work and especially not for me.
Now, several weeks later, humbled and so grateful, I know that not only does the Law of Attraction work, I also have greater awareness as to where I have perpetuated my self-abuse. – firstly, Law of Attraction works, – second, it works irrespective of whether I choose consciously, or alternatively by default choice, – thirdly, by concluding that Law of Attraction did not work for me, I was viewing myself as lacking and without value and worth.
I created and attracted situations and incidents that were lovingly and unconditionally, highlighting for me where and how I was devalueing myself and shooting myself in the foot, as far as my self-worth was concerned. I was faced with a seemingly total lack of abundance. The Universe had been inviting me to really be conscious of my default programme of value and worth playing in the background, i.e. my vibration.
It was brought home to me that nothing occurs in isolation. There is a connectedness to everything and also within us. All that shows up in our daily life truly is a reflection of what is within us. It is essential to step out of the Ego Mind (Solar Plexus) and into our Knowing (Heart Chakra) if we are to fully understand these reflections.
“May your relationship with yourself be so loving, accepting and full of self-compassion, self-esteem and self-caring that you attract people who treat you the same way!” ~Unknown
People will always treat you as you treat yourself. The key is understanding what is showing up – even though it may not be something you can like. As the beautiful Dee Wallace often says, “Love yourself, love yourself, love yourself – and then love yourself even more………”
The value of worth is in BEING YOU! Now that is worthy of value!
