Body Check Exercise – Step 1 to Connecting to Your PEMS
Take a moment to get in communication with your body mind by performing the body check. This is a great exercise to get you to connect to your PEMS, so that you can be fully aware of the changes your body goes through as it delves into body talk.
Body Check Starter Questions:
You can simply start by asking the body a few questions:
- Body mind we are listening please tell us what you want us to know?
- Is there an area of the body that has discomfort, pain?
- Is there something in your life that is causing you suffering? If so where do you sense this in your body?
- What area of the body is affected when you talk, think or imagine this thing that is causing you suffering?
- When you sense into this area what information do you get?
- Audio, visual, scents, emotions, pain, inner knowing, sensing’s, flashes, movies etc
- Ask this area what type of support it would like?
- It may flash a color of the essence, touch somewhere on the body –ANYTHING really – no expectations just listening
- If it is not a direct answer
- Look to the 4 essence cards & do the color attraction or touch method
- Body Check EXERCISE #1: to ground & connect the body
- Close your eyes or keep them open in a soft gaze
- Do a quick inventory of the entire body- breathing in the body as a whole 3 breaths
- Then start with your attention at your feet breathing in for 1 or 2 breaths then moving onward upward to the head Once you are complete you are ready to begin body check part 2
- BODY CHECK EXERCISE #2: to move heavy energy & get in full body mind space
Step 1: Imagine there is a large vase full of a warm honey like fluid that is being poured gently over your head in a cleansing and nourishing movement that will eventually be pooling at the feet & soaking into the great earth mother as sweet compost
That which does not nourish us can nourish the mother – our hoocha (heavy energy) is her black gold!!!
The honey acts by taking everything that is not serving into itself to be fed as ambrosia to the earth
- Step 2: As it moves its way slowly down the body it pools and sits on areas that need a little extra attention or nourishment – breath this into your body letting it leave you clean, bright, clear and full of life
If there is pain in an area – allow the honey to pool around the area. Seeping in, bringing with it the light of your awareness. Bring your breath and awareness into the area. Breathing through the it for 3 breaths and on the final breath exhale deeply letting your awareness float on to the next area with the next breath
Step 3: The honey has reached your feet & is now pooling around you slowly seeping into the earth. You see this dark & heavy honey leaving your body & it is transformed as the earth sucks the ambrosia of hoocha. I image a brightness of diamond golden rays as the hoocha honey is transformed by the earth mother. She transforms darkness to light and uses it to grow her inner gardens. She loves our heavy energy & wants to co-create a more solidified PEMS for you for it also supports her too.
