If you explore the vast field of energy healing and study any spiritual practices, you will understand that every healing happens first at the spiritual level. Your spiritual dimension is your foundation. “You are a spiritual being having a physical experience” as many teachers have said. Most of you have an emergency kit for your physical body at home. Have you created an emergency kit for your spiritual body?
How do you live your life when your loved one is diagnosed with cancer? How do you access serenity when your son struggles with addiction? How much pain do you experience when no matter how much you give to your fiends and family it is never enough, never recognized? How much depression do you hold when you feel so isolated everyday? How much anxiety do you have when you think about your future?
If you have not started already, it is time to create your spiritual emergency kit. It will give you the true experience that you are a soul, a spirit, a light. It will help you develop your inner clarity and stability and prevent you from getting caught into the ocean of your emotions or any stories that will suck you into a black hole.
The first medicine for the soul in my tool kit is stillness.
Now, for many of us, our mind is so loud that it is unbearable to be physically still. Witness your being as you intent to be still if this is fairly new to you. Some of you will have tremendous physical pain staying still (often caused by the mind) , others will be distracted or nervous.
There are many ways to practice stillness and often I recommend practices that invite you to move or breathe a certain way to experience inner stillness. Be curious and explore options offered by many traditions. Try Tai Chi, Bagua Zang, Yoga, Chi Gong, walking meditation and be willing to experience what brings you inner stillness.
Reach inward toward your true nature and practice stillness. You will develop your intuition, stay away from your life drama, increase your life force and simply attract what your soul truly desires.
