Appreciating who you really are begins by taking inventory of the incredible being that you are.This personal thanksgiving starts by acknowledging the creativity, resilience, and energetic consciousness within your own body-mind system. This makes a difference in how you experience the present, and allows you to connect more deeply to the wisdom that resides within yourself, your experiences in your life on a day-to-day basis, your relationships, and business, as well as allowing you to connect to your unique purpose, gifts and place in the universal web of connection.
Appreciating Your Body-Mind System
There are an estimated 50 trillion cells, 600 muscles, and hundreds of thousands of neurotransmitters, as well as twelve energy meridians and a Chakra System that serve as your inner provisions for your experience of life on every level. The muscles, tissues, organs, glands, enzymes, hormones, amino acids, etc. are all in communication. It is like the United Nations on a microbiological level. The information and communication between these systems are vital. When one part of the system is out of sync or balance, it affects the quality of energy communication between all the systems of your body.
Taking care of your body is a way of expressing gratitude for the amazing being your are.Say thank you with nourishing whole foods, getting into nature, and full-spectrum light helps to care for your body’s needs.
Thanking your own body-mind system is also directly related to your sense of being energized and capable of being nurtured. It also depends greatly on your ability to resonate with feeling supported and receiving benefit from that support. The ability to give and take what is beneficial to you, and to let go of what is not helpful goes a long way in discerning what will nourish you needs for bonding, safety, love, curiosity, manifesting your potential,happiness, meaning, and purpose. Thank yourself with loving self-talk.
Loving awareness and self-talk originate early in your development as a human being. Our relationships and interactions with others are based on need. Your birth process and bonding/separation responses you had with your parents in the first years of development set the stage for how you experience closeness and need for separation. Family’s beliefs, attitudes and messages you received impact your thoughts and actions. These patterns become the imprint for how you experience life and relationship.You have both life and spirit level needs that originated with conception. Becoming aware of basic needs within yourself allows you to understand that every one is painting a world that is expressing a need at various levels. By learning to appreciate your inner senses, and giving attention to your own needs, you become more capable of hearing the needs of others.

If you experienced trauma, abuse, loss or illness in your life or during childhood years, the body-mind system reacts to this information at the emotional and survival levels. This influences how you see your self and others. You see with your mind through the filters of memory. This has a direct effect on your breath, posture and how much light is received, processed, and radiated throughout your body based on the energetic residue (pain) that blocks or interferes with this communication where there is a need for healing. Have compassion for all of your experiences and the path you have walked in becoming who you are today. Thank yourself for the higher lessons and the invitation to healing.
You are designed for success and self-healing. You are an energetic body of color, light, sound, movement, breath, fragrance and consciousness . This means that your body-mind system can update and transform unconscious material within to create more coherent energy flow, harmony and balance through these natural modalities. Where there has been pain of any kind, small coherent change can transform your life systemically for more coherent life energy, love, joy, communication, understanding and inner peace.
Your spirit is the core essence of yourself. You are both in the world and fabric of the Universe itself.
You are an evolutionary being of light and sound. You are also an involution of energy on a spiritual journey. Every interaction you have with another person is valuable. Your interests, talents, voice, creativity, care, actions, love, thoughts and view of life influence and support the cohesion and positive change in the world. Even if it seems like it is on a small-scale, you are important to the weave of life. Every person is unique and has something to offer life that no one else has to offer in the same way as you. Much like the cells of the body working together to create overall health and well-being, your energy, time, and appreciation for the connection makes a significant contribution to the overall consciousness of the experience of life. Thank yourself for making a difference in your world through your smile, your presence, listening, support and positive actions.
Current science confirms that every bit of matter in the Universe can be traced to its origin. The expression of light and matter through space and time translated itself into gases, materials, stars, planets, and life forms. You are literally a being of light experiencing life because of these developing
events. You literally are carrying all time and all space within you! With this knowledge, it is possible to know that within your being ,each sentient being and every element you experience is orchestrating wellness and well-being through the ecosystems of sentient beings, energy, light, sound and matter,as consciousness itself in the web of connection. Appreciate this incredible experience of being you!
