Your Unique Body Story - Yes, I’m talking about your body, and my body, and everybody’s body on Earth!! This incredible totally unique machine, which is referred to as “you,” which cannot be reproduced or manufactured by any science, has its own story: a story which belongs to you alone. This story contains the true wholeness of your Being, of your body, mind, and spirit.
Most of us seem to have this very real tendency to think of our physical bodies in an impersonal way. We expect them to function for us, period! And, we don’t give much thought to the natural process that is occurring every single second in our bodies which keeps us alive. Our hearts pump blood along the roadways of the arteries and veins; our liver and pancreas work as partners in controlling our blood sugar; and as long as our lungs breathe in and out, we are alive. All of these functions and hundreds more are going on continuously without any contribution from you.
The truth is: the human body is the most remarkable machine in existence. There is no computer that surpasses its capability. There is no mind brilliant enough to synthetically create a human. And, there is no way to keep the body alive when its natural story is complete, and it is time for its passing.
Based on what we understand from quantum physics and theorems such as Bell’s Theorem, it seems every single cell in your body is in constant communication with every other cell in your body. Isn’t that an amazing realization? This means no one part of your body can function independently. With this constant communication comes a working together of the parts of your wholeness.
Wholeness means: having all aspects of your body, mind, and spirit in a state of balance, harmony, and wellness. On the contrary, when aspects of our body are not in full communication, when this communication has been compromised by the many forms of stresses of life, then a state of disharmony begins to manifest in the physical, emotional, and/or spiritual aspects of one’s body. The manifestation of imbalances might be in the form of digestive, hormonal, heart, skin, or breathing problems. Or, it might show with multiple symptoms such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, constant viruses, cancer, or a myriad of other diseases.
Now, let’s go back to the uniqueness which I stated that we all have. Why do you think this is important? Well, the uniqueness reflects your own special story, the story of your life with all of its details. Every single experience of your life has come through your body in one way or another through one of your five senses. Most of the time, you experience the happenings, feel the emotions, and then let them go. However, at other times, the event or emotion has an impact on you; it has an emotional energetic charge to it, and instead of letting it go, you store the experience in your body. When an event or emotion gets stored, the “charge” of it acts like a short-circuit in the communication. Then, what follows is: the necessary link between certain aspects of your body becomes weakened or in some way compromised. When that happens, and the communication is no longer optimal, symptoms manifest in the body. We call this “dis-ease.”
Certain parts of our bodies have a tendency to hold certain kinds of emotions. This means when an experience has an emotional impact on us, an event can be stored unconsciously in the bodymind. When using the ancient Chinese medical model, the liver tends to store anger, the heart is often susceptible to depression, and the lungs might hang on to grief. Each of our organs, endocrines, and muscles can grab and store experiences which have impacted us. We could say that our bodies are like a map of our lives. These are very simple examples that I have used to help illustrate a point, but the story becomes much bigger when we look at the consciousness and different personalities of our body parts.
The reaction to emotion is unique to each of our personal stories. For one person, an experience will be just an experience, and there will be no hanging on to it, while the seemingly same experience will be “charged” and stored by another person. Whether or not a life experience becomes stored depends on the current emotional state of the person, the uniqueness of that particular person’s history, and even his or her inherited emotions and tendencies, among other things.
As these energies become stored, we begin to experience less than optimal health, be it through physical and/or emotional symptoms. It is not possible for a practitioner, regardless of his or her skill and sensitivity, to be able to say what is “wrong” with the person. Of course there are very valid tests and methods that lead to a description of what is happening, and this description of what is going on is what we call the “diagnosis.” While it is possible to say what appears to be behind the valid diagnosis, who can say what is behind that apparent cause? In other words, behind the cause is the life story of each unique person. As it is not possible for another to read the life story of “you,” it begins to become feasible to see how the healing of the bodymind is a process unique to that person.
The word “holistic” refers to the totality of a person. Most health practices, whether they are allopathic or complementary medicine, concentrate on the “problem” body part, and they believe the source of the problem is related somehow to that particular area. However, the reality is that the illness may be caused by something not related to the body part which is demonstrating the symptoms. Therefore, the accessing of the person’s story and how the life experiences have been stored in the body is what makes The BodyTalk System™ a truly holistic healthcare system. This statement means the body, mind, and spirit levels become balanced according to the priority needs of that person, and once this happens, it is possible for healing to occur on many levels.
When using the BodyTalk System™, the Innate Intelligence of the body becomes the guide, and It tells the BodyTalk System™ practitioner what links need to be repaired. Once we have this unique information, we then use the BodyTalk System™ to balance the indicated links which, in turn, restores the previous communication glitch. We then ask and find out what the next priority link is, and so on. The results of this process are truly phenomenal. Though we don’t yet have a scientific explanation for how this works, there is a knowing by the practitioners using this system that by tapping into the Innate Wisdom, and listening to what It tells us, we can assist the body in restoring itself in a holistic manner.
As the balance of the body is enhanced, the body is capable of healing itself. If the body is asked rather than being told, it will reveal the most intimate details of that person’s story through a sequence of links. And, as this uniqueness unfolds, and the priority pieces get balanced, always as indicated by the body, the person begins to heal. There are no limits to this process. The wisdom of your body, when accessed, will truly create the miracles of healing!
