We all have cell phones right?
We all have our computer that runs out of juice, and our frig that needs electricity to stay cold or everything inside goes rotten. We have a lot of things that need to be plugged in.
And then we have this body. A body that miraculously doesn’t need to be plugged in.
Can you believe it? We just go and go! Our bodies love us so much, they serve us and run and run.
Even when we don’t always treat them right.
Have you thought about that lately? How much your body loves you? How much it serves you. How it magically knows how to heal from a wound, get better from a cold, how it knows how to grow from a baby to an adult, how it breathes and pumps without our asking or needing you to remind it. By design we grow, we heal we get better.
The heart or cardiac muscle… the muscle tissue of the heart, is one of the most unique kinds of muscle in the body. It is the energizer bunny of love, adapted for continous loving rhythmic contraction. The heart is a magnetic force field, a super charged super power of special tissue that doesn’t get tired. It doesn’t need to rest, and loving you gives you life, beating over 2.5 billion times by the time you are 66 years old.
Our lungs, they have these lovely lobes. Like petals. You have three lung lobes on the your right side, under
your ribs. like scalloped petals. And you have two lovely lung lobes on your left side.
Why? Because by magical design they made room for your heart.
So when you breath fully into your 5 loving lobes they give a little massage to your heart. Isn’t that just so sweet?
In a recent interview I heard featuring Marianne Williamson, she reminded us of this quote by Albert Einstein:
“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.”
Given the above proof, it is hard to deny our universe isn’t divinely made, that even our basic programming, the basic nature of all beings is to grow, heal, get better. Our hearts love us unconditionally.
So get out of your own way.
And take a huge breath. Write down 5 things you can do to love your body, and do them. Eat deliciously healthy. Exercise. Breath deeply. Care for you. Care for your body. Listen to it, because it cares for you every day. Our bodies are programmed to love us.
You are divinely designed and magically made.
Love yourself. And then share that love with another.
This post is dedicated to my loving neighbor Ester. After being in the hospital on the edge of life, she has safely returned home and is recovering slowly.
Please love yourselves.
If you don’t… who will?
