Find out how 'light' and 'heavy' can tell you a lot about what your body is telling you.
Read 'Who does this belong to? We are all sponges, and because of that, we may be taking, owning, other people's traumas and dramas, without any awareness of it.
I offer this suggestion often, as well as remind myself often to use it.
Access Consciousness® has taught me, when something is true for your body, it will let you know by 'feeling' light. If something isn't true to your body, it will let you know by 'feeling' heavy'.
I remember 'owning' another person's point of view about my health, and for days I felt like crap; I couldn't focus, I felt heavy, and so on. Finally I realized this is my body letting me know that this is someone else's truth, not mine. I finally let go of their truth, and the crappy feeling went away, the heaviness went away! I felt amazing! Huge awareness for me that this light vs. heavy awareness works.
Now sharing all that, sometimes that heavy feeling is letting us know not to make that choice now. Since we may not know the difference between 'pick something else' or a 'ask later'. I tend to ask again in a few minutes to see if I still get the heaviness from the question.
Another way you can use light and heavy is to ask for the future. Ask 'how will my life look like in 5 years if I accept this job offer (or buy this home, or buy this car, or not take this job.. etc). If your awareness is light, then that's probably a good choice. If your awareness is heavy, then perhaps make another choice, or wait a bit and ask again.
Another way of making space for your body to talk to you (and you listening of course), is to be a human pendulum.
Here is an experiment to play with to understand light and heavy. Offer yourself 2 things you would love to do on a day off. For example, go to the beach, or housework. Notice if either choices have a different reaction in your body.
Even words can have the same effect on our bodies. Saying something like 'I want that chocolate bar', vs 'that chocolate bar looks yummy'. You may notice the first sentence is almost a desperate feeling, whereas the 2nd one is a more body-friendly phrase.
I say the below phrase often on 'good' days, and many more times on 'bad' days. It has helped me with clearing out what isn't mine first, then I'm able to play with what is mine in a clearer awareness.
Everything that doesn't belong to me, I return to sender with consciousness.
Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness®, and Dr. Dain Heer, co-founder of Access Consciousness®, promote a point of view that most of our aches and pains in our bodies, dis-ease limitations, and non-happy emotions aren't even ours! I've known for years that most of us are empaths; that we are sponges, that we absorb other people's aches, pains, thought patterns. This phrase has been so helpful for myself, and for those I've shared it with (that chose to choose this).
The best part of this all, is that it isn't required to know where 'whatever it is' came from, as long as we're willing to un-own it; release it; clear it out. Where it goes back to, the point of creation, is up to the energy, not us, to figure it out.. how does it get easier than this!
It's my go-to when something in me doesn't feel right, physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Or what I suggest to most clients, friends, family, students, say they're not feeling well, or sad, or angry, or tired. Or when something hurts that didn't hurt.
Give any of the below videos a watch, They're all just a few minutes.. it may just change your whole world! What do you have to lose except what doesn't belong to you?!!
Dr. Dain Heer, Blossom Benedict, and many others, have numerous youtube videos to watch and listen to. Listen/watch to as many of them that resonate with you... lots of choices!
Thanks for offering yourself another self-care possibility .. you're awesome!!!,
Dr. Dain Heer (co-founder of Access Consciousness ®, offers us the awareness that most of us are owning limitations that don't belong to us, and we don't even know it!
Fortuantely Dr. Dain Heer (co-founder of Access Consciousness ®, has created a few 'Who Does This Belong To?' videos to offer different ways of presenting this point of view.
Another video with different energy, to catch even more people's attention :)
