What are you contributing to your body?

Recently, a friend commented that it felt good to be contributing to her body. That comment struck me like lightening. We contribute to our savings accounts, our retirement funds, our communities and our children’s schools. We work our bodies to the point of exhaustion, restrict their food intake and pump them with medications and supplements when they aren’t performing to our satisfaction. Have you ever thought about contributing to your body’s well being and health?

Neither had I until this simple, loving statement has changed the way I look at and interact with my body. I encourage you to think about this. These third dimensional, overwhelmingly complex organic machines are what allow us to experience this world and all its beauty. Without our bodies, we wouldn’t be able to feel the softness of a child’s face nor hear the breathing of a beloved when we wake from a nightmare. We wouldn’t be able to smell the autumn or see the sunrise. Think of all the joys in your life.…

We demand so much from our bodies and usually give them very little tender care. When was your last massage? When was the last time you laughed out loud or slept until you were ready to get up? What have you been feeding your body? Or even thought about asking it what it wanted as fuel? And yet, we push. We judge. We manipulate. Have you ever asked your body if it wanted to work out? Or thanked it for sticking with you through the workout and not giving up? Have you ever blessed your body for all it brings you and does for your pleasure and success?

From a Spiritual standpoint, we look at there being four major aspects of Self: the Soul and energy body, the Mind and mental body, the Heart and emotional body and the Physical body. Most of us pay attention to our Spiritual selves through meditation, yoga or other Spiritual practices. We are mindful of our Mental selves (pardon the pun) through reading, Sudoku - even balancing our checking accounts! We care for our Emotional bodies by giving our time and receiving appreciations, sharing a hug with a loved one or friend, bursting into gales of laughter over a silly joke and feeding the ducks and turtles. Yes, our physical bodies are involved in all of this, but, do we really stop to appreciate their magnificence?

As I have been writing, I have realized that there are two aspects of “negative contributing,” and both can easily be turned into a “positive relationship.”

The first is something we do without thought or understanding the damage it does to self. It is the judgment we hold of our bodies. Our bodies are as tender and vulnerable as they are strong. They respond to love faster and with greater healing than they do with criticism and punishment. Take some time to listen to how you interact with yourself. Speak to your body with the same love (mentally and verbally) that you want from others. When you change your communication, beautiful things can happen.

The second is consciously and deliberately contributing to our bodies. Are you asking your physical body what it wants for lunch or shoving some chemical concoction in it to shut up the growling in your stomach? Are you aware of the pain your body is in? Are you doing something to heal it or just turn off the pain temporarily? Or do you actually get angry at it for not living up to your expectations? None of us like to be left out of decisions about our lives. Neither does your body. It is important to be honest if you are going to develop and nurture a relationship with your body.

In my friend’s recovery from cancer, she has developed a whole new relationship with her physical container. She feeds it the cleanest of foods, takes it dancing everyday, listens to joyful music, doesn’t allow emotional dumping in her space and has developed a work/rest schedule that supports her being productive and healthy. She listens to her body every day and feels like she has a loving partner in living and enjoying life.

What are you willing to contribute to this vessel that gives you so much? Your body does your bidding to the best of its ability given what you have put in it and done to it. This divine instrument deserves your love and support. Take some time today to ask your body what it wants and contribute to your well being. You might be surprised what you get in return.

Wishing you and your body a beautiful, active and joyful life.
