First element of healing intimacy – honor

Intimacy is a term often used to describe the relationship between people. Usually it is mutually exclusive, that is most people have the point of view that one can only be intimate with a limited number of people. If you the being did not have this point of you may be able to perceive where your body is actually energetically intimate with just about every body around it. Bodies are in constant communication you just misidentify some of this a disease or pain.

It is funny because though most people have the point of view that they can only be intimate with a few people they never have an intimate relationship with their body. Most people will judge their bodies to kingdom come, either it is right or it is wrong, and if the body talks to you with pain or disease we shut it up with drugs or complain about it.

Is there any honor in that? Honoring your body is not judging it and creating it as separate from you, it is including it in your life. Asking your body questions about body things is honoring it. Giving it time each day to be with out you pushing it or abusing it with judgement is honoring it. Listening to it and caring for it is creating more space to be vulnerable with it. The more you honor your body the more gentle it will be with you.

Treating your body like a sack of potatoes is not honoring. Throwing it around, lugging it about, not listening is dishonorable.

Please do one thing a day to honor your body, a simple acknowledgement of what it has to put up with from you would be a start, and then you could thank it would be another and then caressing it would be another and not stuffing it with other peoples opinions would be yet another.

But don’t do any of that, it may start to create the intimacy of healing and hell you wouldn’t wan to do that, would you?
