COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET

Here it is! A breakthrough announcement. Let me tell you the story, so you know which closet it’s coming from.

There was a time in my life when things were not this smooth, but rather purely crazy. My relationships were an orderly chaos for many years. I actually made a bet that I will not marry. The partnerships that I got into were not very suitable for me and my work life was just a daily endeavor that kept me in a state of limbo for a long time. I had been living that way for too long, until I could not breathe in that life any longer.

The meaning of my life was a blur. Acting according to societal expectations, ingrained into me through my upbringing. I lived unaware of what this existence was all about. What I was all about. What my life meant and what was I here for.

When conformity became way too big a burden to drag around I packed one bag and left my country of origin. On my own. I knew nobody, where I was heading and I didn’t quite have a clue what I will do.

What kept me going was the need for a change of scenery. The need to get out of the uncomfortable feeling I had in the so called comfort zone. If I stayed where I was, nothing seemed to ever improve. So I had to carve my own life path.

The new beginning  in a new country was not easy. However, even through the first few years I was fairly stable and solid in my opinions about life and how I wanted to live it.

I met some interesting people on my journey and took upon a few opportunities and it all started to come together and bring me a new sense of belonging and identity. Things started to work out nicely. Until…

Until life had a joke up its sleeve for me and I was about to learn more about it.

Then one day I browsed the internet for places to go on holidays. I stumbled upon a 10 days silent meditation retreat, which was called Vipassana. My curious mind was engaged and once I found a bit more about it I was hooked. I wanted to try it. I was both daring and intrigued. To spend 10 days in complete silence, without any eye contact, with no sex, no writing, no technology, no books, no exercise, no alcohol, no drugs, no music…no distractions.

Well, it didn’t take much for me to decide to do it.

The retreat was set in a forest, in an environment of peaceful surroundings and wild wallabies, birds and other creatures. Just perfect set for such an intense 10 days meditation course.

I will skip the details of the retreat story here, and get to the point I want to make here.

My life shattered on that retreat. It was wild, crazy, deep, moving, painful and enlightening ride. I survived physically, yet everything in my psyche fell apart and re-birthed itself anew. It blew my mind, literally.

Life after the retreat was not in any shape or form the same as before.

The belief structures that were so well ingrained in my psyche shattered into millions of lights. Life suddenly made sense.

To know what I am talking about here exactly, you can Google these two words “Kundalini Awakening”, respectively for more descriptive detail of the events, you might want to read the book “Driven By Kundalini”.

I went from being a rather strong and solid practical personality for most years, to finding myself in the center of the whole universal life energy. Bliss is a good way to describe the state of mind, when our mind gets out of the way and the energies there are present and moving upwards.

Experience the eternity in a moment is the best I can call it. Hell and heavens meeting point.

What actually happened was that I ended up hospitalized and locked up in the ICU intensity care unit.

And that was just the beginning …

To leave you with some sort of wisdom from all this. Here is what I know now.

Life is best lived. Until we stretch our thinking mind, we don’t grow. Without support of the right kind, we might not progress as expected.

Let life be what it is, without expectations and attachments to the past or the future.

Be aware.

YOU ARE FULL OF MEMORIES AND WISDOM

What I know is that on some level you know that you are not just your body. If this sounds too far-fetched, there is some deep learning for you to do about who you truly are. What this translates to is that we live INSIDE our body.

Look at it this way. Who is running your heart? Who pumps the blood into the veins? Who is doing your breath? Who keeps you alive while you sleep?

All answers point to this. There is another level of your being than your physical body.

What I want to touch upon today is the structure of your physical body.

In my view, the reason we HAVE a body is to be able to experience the joys of this reality and to have a place to store the memories of our experiences.

Yes, the actual past memories of our experiences are stored inside the body. Metaphorically speaking, your past is burned into the cells of your body!

Let’s test it. Just remember the last time you felt joyous and elated. Or another time, when you felt quite disappointed. Do real memories come up to your mind’s eye?

As these memories rise above inside you, they are either released or dealt with at this time or they are pushed back inside. If the latter is the case, they are stored inside your body until you are ready to proceed with them and let the feelings from the past experiences go.

This is not just a pretty theory. It’s the very basis of our body structure.

When we were born our body was a rather pliable and soft. Then we started to experience the variety of situations in this life existence, it made us feel a certain way. The feelings that we had produced a certain chemicals in the brain and these chemicals travel inside the body to create a physical response, which leads to a certain external behavior.

Now, this has been repeatedly happening since then until this moment in time and onward. We have a physical body that reflects upon the internal feelings and emotions that we have during this lifelong journey.

No wonder there is a whole field of study, dedicated to Face and body readings, Psychosomatic Therapy and Body language.

Our body tells a story of our life

What is our body saying to the world?

The fact that our body speaks louder than our words is undeniable. Besides the obvious personality traits, that can be seen in a certain face shapes and postures. There are other subtle messages, which can be read by well-trained eyes.  These subtle messages show in each and every part of our physical tissues. They can be read even from our wisdom lines and the shapes and forms on our face and body.

What does that tell you?

If you admire a physical feature on another person, know that it speaks volumes about their past conditioning and environment influences. And if you do not like any feature about your own body, know that its reason for being that way is the storage of unresolved memories and perceived fears.

And if you still have a bit of trouble believing me, just think about this example.

What happens to your face, when you smile a lot, and are happy for many years? How does it influence the shape of your facial tissues and lines?

What happens when someone cries and is sad all the time? How is that shaping their face?

Body Structure under pressure

Reflect upon the well-known fact, that people who are clinically depressed for a long time have a certain hunched body posture. Their face also shows signs of sadness and sometimes hopelessness.

Learn to Love Your Body As Is

The most crucial part in our healthy body image is the absolute acceptance of the shape and structure of the body we are in now. If you are finding it hard to love all the parts of your body the way they are, just remember, that this body is the only vehicle we have in this lifetime.

It’s been here with us since the beginning and will be here until our last breath. Learn to love it the way it is. And with acceptance and care comes a new understanding, new self-worth, a new image.

The internal world is memory storage of the external world.

Step Forward Into a Healthy Future

When we learn to first understand and then fully accept and love our own body with all the signs of wear and tear, we slowly but surely learn to live in a peaceful internal environment.

Peace and let go of the past hurts. Shape a new body!
