Day 4-Mind-body Connection

Yesterday, a family member was in a car accident.  Upon hearing the news, my body began to respond with an empathetic  headache and back pains. .  Through this experience, I am reminded, once again, of the impact of our thoughts and emotions on our bodies.

Being aware that my body responds to my thoughts and emotions, I began to calm myself down by recognizing the healing response to affirmative thoughts and prayers.  I focused my attention of the healing life of God within me, giving thanks for her healing and for the healing of others who are suffering dis-eases of the body. Knowing that all systems immediately respond to the healing impulse, I gave thanks for the relaxation of my nerves and muscles. Within a few minutes, my headache had subsided and my back muscles relaxed. Upon arrival at the hospital, I found that she was alright, just shaken up a bit.

I am so grateful for this teaching and for knowing that prayer is the answer to all of our problems. This is a reminder, also, once again, to start my day with prayers and thoughts of gratitude. “If the only prayer  you say in your entire life is “Thank You”, that would suffice.” Meister Eckhart

    Every situation offers opportunities for growth- that is moving beyond the present circumstance to give and receive a higher expression of thought/consciousness that I had not needed to ‘get to’ before! i am grateful in the moment of awareness to move past the past and recognize the gift of now, right now!
