Have you ever consciously noticed that the word intimacy begins with the letter “I” ? This is because, to experience true intimacy in life, you have to first become Intimate with yourself. Getting to know YOU, as the saying goes. This involves all of you – the good, the bad and ugly bits – so that you are left with the phenomenal unique creation and gift that is YOU!
For centuries we have been taught through cultural and religious indoctrination that the body is something unclean and it will lead you astray. Those in power knew the secret of the body connection and its sacred nature and that by propogating this beLIEf that the flesh would betray you, drove a wedge between you and your greatest and closest friend. Your Body. Sadly this misdirection of information continues today, however, thankfully with the new energy and arrival of raised consciousness, these untruths are beginning to fall away and dissolve. It’s not over yet though and YOU have a lead role to play in creating true genuine and sustainable healthy change around this. How? Well let me explain.
If you believe the premise, that everything is within you, and I do, then the very first place to start is with what you already have. Right? So what do we all have whilst we are on this planet Earth, from the time just after conception until we die and our remains are laid to rest? Yes! A human body. During a lifespan we awake and fall asleep in it every day of our life. And yet, how well, if at all do you know your own body?
I know it has taken me many years to really understand just how my body plays a role in my life above and beyond my initial perception. Buried beneath the weight of social, gender and personal judgment of what it – my body – should look like, be like and act like – I became aware in my early twenties just how much my body actually did for me. At that age though I still did not understand exactly all that this amazing miraculous physical machine made up of muscles, bone, skin and an intricate network of nerves and organs that were all taking care of me, whilst I got on with Life. As I began to use and follow my intuition more and more, I began to have greater awareness about just how much my body actually did for me. And probably 90% of the time I was absolutely unaware of what was going on. And it was my own body.
Since then I have learned to tap into not only my own body’s innate intelligence and to hede its wealth of information, but also that of others. I am convinced that if we as a species are to experience greater bounty, health and communion not only with each other but with the rest of life on this planet, then it is imperative that we connect to this vehicle first. Why?
You life is spent in a physical body and everything you perceive – consciously and unconsciously – connects You to everything else through and in your body. It is your receptor and magically also responds and morphs in response to the frequency of your directives. These are more commonly known as your thoughts. Your body literally hears and captures everything that you ever see, feel or think.
Scientists have observed in the laboratory that when a cell is observed under a microscope, it begins to respond to the attention of the observer. A great example of this is the wonderful work done by the late Dr Masaru Emoto on water crystals. Although there is still controversy over his work, the proof is in the picture, as the microscopic photos show clearly the different imprint of certain words on the water. Simultaneously, it is a biological fact that the human body, and that of our Planet consists of 80% water. This is what is meant when said that water represents emotions. Water is a perfect conduit for vibrations and in turn the vibrations impact on the water’s molecular structure.
So when I mentioned earlier that I began to become aware of just how much my body was already doing that was beyond my conscious attention, I began to observe the relationship between how I was feeling and what was showing up in my body and also my life. This is how I know that there is a connection. But the most important connection – because it is the core and control room – is my own body and how I connect and interact with it.
As a Body-Brain Reformer, I have worked with many clients who suffer from chronic pain, whether physical or emotional. I have also worked with and through my own chronic suffering. And so I know that the key to living a happy life is within the connection that I have with my own body and the information and highly intuitive feedback system that it works on. Here we have a highly sophisticated system that interrelates between layers of consciousness, with the human brain set up as the mainframe. This is a loop system though, so the brain is capturing information from not only the body, but from the body’s light bodies and the realm of the psyche and setting up a feedback system to support the transmission of this information. It is an extremely subtle and sensitive system that has enormous potential that for the most part has gone untapped, due to limiting data programming via thought patterns chosen and that lock the energy in the body. So we need to learn how to consciously input and programme the data fed into this control centre. This is where as an individual we hold the power of choice to co-create a specific lifestyle and set of experiences.
There is no doubt that social, educational and physical entrainment can inhibit these processes and they have for the majority of us, for a long long time. Until now. There is a movement, called the Awakening. There is nothing religious about. It is a scientifically observable fact, as more photonic energy is showing up. This event is causing an unprecedented increase in vibrational energy and so time appears to move quicker, changes happen more often. If we are to ride this wave successfully and with a medium of control, then we must learn to use the tools and resources that we have at our disposition. Everything is within and it’s accessible in and via your human body. If you would like to find out what kind of body connection you can have with your body, so that you can enjoy and participate actively in the changes that are happening, then I have a challenge for you.

Recently, I hauled out my juicing machine and purchased a blender and I began juicing fruit and veggies. Adding a glass of fresh fruit or veggie juice to my daily eating plan. Just like that! Not for any other reason than that my body has been asking for something more from food that what it has obviously been getting. And it became quite vehement about it over the last few weeks.
I consider myself very fortunate too to have access to many fresh organic vegetables from my home garden, which helps a lot with availability and budget. I have found myself enjoying this experience and actually having a lot of fun, as I go about concocting different fruit and/or vegetable cocktails. Needless to same, some have been more enjoyable to ingest than others. But even with the ghastly tasting blends, I began to notice something! Regardless of the actual taste, my body was having the time of its Life! I definitely had more energy and the sluggishness was lifting and I noticed I was walking with a bounce in my step, feeling less achy and stiff. My body felt wonderful and was humming to me. 😉
Now before all you fervent juicers say ‘We told you so’, I do wish to confirm that I have on several previous occasions fasted and started detox juice plans. Some were successfully completed, but none with any long-term success. I also knew that my body did not want to experience these again and was looking for something new, quick and easy. Otherwise, quite frankly neither of us are keen to get started, not to mention keeping it up.
After a particularly horrid tasting veggie cocktail a few days ago, I did begin to wonder at the role our taste buds play in our eating habits. I found myself wondering, ‘Am I a slave to my taste buds?’. There is definitely a Yes answer in there to a large degree. There is no denying that eating something delicious can be orgasmic and extremely pleasurable. But how much of what we eat leaves us feeling great and energised?
So many people experience indigestion, bloating, allergies, food disorders when it comes to food. So is it enough to eat something that simply tastes good? Just looking at the package label of most food makes it quite apparent that much of the food we think we are eating, is not ‘real’ food and has been disguised usually with chemicals to taste appealing. The chemicals often settle into the body’s tissue and long-term cause dis-ease, as the body is not able to flush them out effectively, when consumed in large quantities and over extended periods of time. A lot of the food we consume today is basically a synthetic copy of a natural food with artificial flavouring added to make it palatable.
If you have ever suffered from a hang-over and had a toddy, then you know that the toddy that actually made you feel better, tasted simply awful. Stories of old, always tell of the beverage that tasted worse than anything and yet it restored a sense of health.
I remember back to when I first started using structured water just over a year ago. Now I am a coffee drinker. I love the taste and smell of coffee. So it was a ritual to begin my day with a good cup of filtered fresh coffee. Drinking structured water changed my taste bud. For several weeks after beginning to drink structured water, I found the taste of my usual coffee had changed, so much so, that I no longer even enjoyed drinking my coffee. So I stopped. Then after about two month’s I suddenly desired a coffee again. This time, my coffee tasted different and deliciously so. I realized that my taste buds had gone through a detox. It could well be also why, a few month’s ago, I started getting intuitions from my body that it desired more nutritional and fresh foods.
Freedom is about being willing and able to respond to life and make choices that contribute to making life better. When one is a slave ………………. to anything, this freedom is absent. Whilst tasty and delicious food may fulfill your taste buds, is it actually nourishing your body or are you slowly dying from nutritional starvation ?
How can you tell? Well those symptoms of bloating, indigestion, rashes, drowsiness, headaches and lack of energy etc could be a clue that what your body requires and what your taste buds are telling you is okay to eat, are not in alignment. If it helps you to keep notes, then jot down those times when you feel off. It could be a once off, however if it is happening more often than not, then taking a look at the fuel you are putting into your body, may be a great place to start. And of course, you could ask you body what it want’s to eat. I almost always muscle test everything now and I am amazed at the new foods and tastes that are showing up for me to explore. The great thing with plain natural unseasoned food, is that you get to play with flavours and spices and find those that marry well together. And you also know what is in your food.
Eating well is not just about food that tastes nice. The fast food industry is an example of where food can taste nice but long-term does not provide ample nutrition for the human body to sustain and heal itself in an optimal way. How you hydrate your body is also important and despite all of these fancy drinks available, the body really only requires water and if at all possible, structured water because it is energized and freed from entrainment, i.e. memory.
The quality of our food is of the utmost importance as it is the fuel for our physical bodies. I am not suggesting that you always eat food that tastes horrible. I have experienced that the more natural my food is, the more I actually get to taste the natural flavour of what I am eating. If you don’t like it then you don’t have to eat it. Nature, however, provides us with a wide variety of yummy natural foods that taste good and that – even better – are good fuel. Start to integrate them slowly into your life. There is no need to give up anything. I still have my coffee and enjoy chocolate.
Please, don’t let your taste buds take you on a ride – especially to a place where you do not want to find yourself or experience ill-health !
Here’s to healthy living and eating. Bon Appetit.

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!
