The Body And Mind Are Created To Work In Sync
We are living in a crazy world these days with so much stress everywhere we turn it seems we’ve forgotten that the mind and body are designed to be in sync. In times of tremendous stress like we are living through right now in our world we would like to share our ideas this month on the mind and body connection.
When was the last time that you gave a thought to how your mind works in connection with your body? We forget that much of the body seems to run on autopilot.
You don’t think about making sure your heart beats, your lungs inflate, and that you exhale every time those lungs fill up. You never think about regenerating your cells or making sure your gut digests the food you eat. Not for one minute because most functions of your body seem independent of your mind.
The body does many things on its own, but it does rely on the mind to lead the way. Your mind makes a lot of the decisions that directly affect the efficiency, health, and appearance of the body.
The body may be responsible for using food for fuel, but the mind decides what food goes into the body. The body may wear the clothes that make the person, but the mind chooses the clothing each and every time.
Your mind and body are meant to be aligned
Your mind and body are designed to be in sync. The mind influences the body and the body influences the mind. This give-and-take should be a harmonious expression. For example, when you feel tired, your body exhibits the aches and pains that come from lack of sleep - signalling the mind it’s time for a break. When the mind senses danger, it alerts the nervous system and creates the fight or flight reflex, getting you to safety as fast as possible.
Sometimes your mind and body are disconnected
Sometimes there is a disconnect between the mind and the body. What you see outside doesn’t truly reflect how you feel inside. There’s something missing - a gap of sorts - between your mind and what you are thinking and the body and what you are experiencing.
This disconnect tends to be unconscious, leaving you oblivious to the fact that one is profoundly influencing the other - whether negatively or positively. I experience this in my life when I get disconnected. This is why I get outside for a walk most days of the week to practice connecting my mind and my body through the awareness I feel when walking. Or when I sit quietly breathing in my meditation time.
Here is why it is important to have a mind/body connection.
The key to reconnecting the mind and body is awareness. Becoming conscious that what you are thinking about could be sabotaging what your body is experiencing can result in:
Closing the gap between your mind and body reconnects the synchronicity and gets things back on track with a healthy mind and body connection.
Your mind and body have separate functions that are designed to be in harmony and work in sync with one another.
When your mind and body are consciously connected, your inward thoughts easily manifest in your outward expression and fully represent the best of what you are thinking in your mind and seeing in the mirror!
Over the next 30 days, we are going to share ideas for you begin to connect the mind and body in a way that will help you live your best life.
It would be great to hear your thoughts on the mind and body connection.
