Lesson 2, Day 9: Explore Your Physical Room

Healing Involves Four Rooms

What led you to the decision to heal? Most likely, you are experiencing a crises in your physical room. An illness or tragedy explodes into your life, destroying what you knew and leaving the rubble of uncertainty and suffering.

The physical room includes your physical body as well as the physical surroundings in which you live. Do you live in the city, surrounded by man-made objects and pollution? Do you live in a cluttered house in need of repair? Are you so concerned about keeping your home clean that you never invite anyone in? Your physical world and your physical body directly impact one another. How you perceive your physical world directly influences how you perceive your physical body.

The disease of the body sometimes begins as a dis-ease in another room of your house. You notice you are out of balance when the physical body breaks down. Western medicine focuses primarily on the physical because you waited until your dis-ease manifested in the body to seek help. Treatments on the physical symptoms may be the first step on a long journey back to the original source of your unbalance.

Return to the rituals of Lesson 1. Look in the mirror, breathe in through the nose, out through the mouth using the tempo that is right for you. Controlled breathing, the affirmation to love and respect yourself, and the act of journaling your gratitude should now be daily rituals.

Get out your journal. Look at your physical body. Write down all the ways you struggle physically. How do you feel about your body? Where is the dysfunction? What activities are you missing out on because of this issue? Look at your physical surroundings. Where do you spend most of your time? What are ways to improve your environment?

Now write what you’re grateful for about your physical body. It’s easy to overlook all that is well when you’re focused on what is not well. Think about a time in your life when you felt healthy and strong. What did you enjoy most about that time?

Affirmation: I desire to heal myself by becoming aware of who I am. I love and respect my physical self.
