Our Bodies’ Plea to Our Minds Align with Us

There are power struggles in every partnership. Our relationship with you, an arranged partnership for life, is no exception.

When you ask us to participate in your plans, one of three things happens: Either we jump into physical labor (call to action), dispute the request (communicate our resistance), or share an intuitive insight (Divine intervention).

We feel significant when united with you in a call to action, but that quickly flips to insignificance when we communicate our resistance to, or limitation in, a request.

Too often our value decreases with each limiting belief when, really, the truth meter should rise.

When up against new challenges, old experiences can interfere. You rehash  unresolved fears like: I’m not good enough to be loved! or I haven’t done enough to be valued! The emotional condition that initiated these fear-filled beliefs took root deep inside us as physical tension, laying silent but toxically charged. Triggered by a similar real-time event, this flood of toxic emotions explodes out of its firewall of tension. We, the physical antenna to Divine intelligence, become mute in the event. You’re on your own to choose between buying into the negative belief and emotional upsurge or searching for our muted voice.

Rather than searching for what is hard to hear, too often, you act on your misaligned and toxic beliefs. Our plea to you is to search. Search for significance rather than accepting insignificance. Disentangle the firewall of tensions that smother our connection with Divine intelligence.

It’s understandable how beliefs can be so loud, and tension can be so suppressing, that the calm nurturing truth of Spirit is drowned out. Intuitive, Divine, insightful knowing gets lost in the frenzy. Spirit’s authentic voice can be silenced for so long that we lose touch with who we are, and the tension that insists that we should be something else, better, or more significant dominates lives.

From this severed state, people become robotic, rebellious, or ultra-responsible rather than authentic; and without outside affirmations and accolades, they feel invisible.

These tension patterns continue to feed your beliefs well after an initial incident formed them. Your need-to-be-right mental nature would keep this exchange between emotions and beliefs going forever if we allowed it. But our quest-for-the-truth physical nature has the potential to challenge your toxic beliefs.

The Spiritual guidance that constantly flows through us as Divine energy can soften our tension to permit a change in your perspective. The search for this spiritual guidance, and the practice of listening, needs your attention to be neutral. The power of neutral attention allows for us to align peacefully.

The inner power struggle between mental and physical natures could actually be seen as a power outage. We don’t know how to distinguish right from true once in the throws of being triggered.

Divine intelligence is unaffected by the fears and beliefs that destroy the quality of our relationship. The truth discerned by this voice is calm no matter what the outcome is, unlike the turmoil you experience when insisting misaligned beliefs are right.

I am writing for the collective of human bodies, to remind you that what we feel, sense, intuit, accept, and resist is what makes us significant. Align us with gravity and together we will align with Divine energy.

Show your commitment to channel Divine energy into your thinking patterns, and we can begin to lean on each other peacefully––contently.

I need you––I need my life partner––in alignment with me.

Although this poem is a plea from our bodies to our minds, this is also a love letter to your body’s inherent alliance with Universal energy. I want to help you visualize your body aligning with this energy, which is why I’ve created 3D-videos to illustrate this powerful phenomenon in my new learning system The Art of Strength: Sculpt the Body ~ Train the Mind.

Redefining Strength

I want to change our perception of strength. Strength is the ability to meet resistance and influence an outcome without compromising ourselves. And we already have it.

Strength is not an attribute; it’s a state of being. Gladiators, bodybuilders, and football players demonstrate strength through brute force, sheer willpower, muscle mass, and relentless pursuit. But we’re also quick to identify dancers and martial artists as strong. Their medium taps into a sense of vulnerability, balance, alignment, controlled power, and grace—but no one can deny their strength. Strength may look different on each of us, but it is an inherent part of who we are.

You are not weak by nature; you are stronger than you think. Your strength is not something you need to kill yourself to gain—it is already within you, waiting to be excavated. The key is to stop chasing something you already have and tap into it, so you can manifest that strength in your everyday life.

Because we don’t think we’re strong, we approach resistance with the idea that we’re not enough. We throw everything we have at it and push past our physical, mental, and emotional limitations. We see strength as domination, but it’s not.

When you learn to listen to your body’s divine wisdom, you cultivate a sense of where your body is developing tension instead of standing in its strength. You end the vicious cycle of unrealistic expectations, injury, and self-criticism and learn how to consciously embrace responsible growth. You stop compartmentalizing your strength into emotional, physical, and mental pieces and operate from the strength of your being at all times.

You learn how to align yourself with gravity—instead of working against it—so you can channel your strength to meet life’s resistance. As you meet resistance with equal parts power and alignment, you transform tension into strength

As in the sword dance above, the power lies in bringing just the right amount of force—not too little and not too much. By meeting the sword’s weight, I meet gravity. I am tapped into a larger source of energy, free of tension, and discover a strength that is wholly and uniquely mine.
