Feel the Inner-Body
So, you’ve read The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment and A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose and want to be more in the body so you can experience the present moment. I’ve noticed that some people have a hard time feeling their inner body and creating what Eckhart Tolle calls, “Inner-body awareness”.
Creating inner-body awareness can take some amount of practice to be able to do it on demand. I can do it now because I’ve practiced it so much while I write. I try to keep that awareness while I’m writing and will stop writing to focus inside my body and listen for any insights.
Easy method to practice feeling the inner-body
I have found that it’s easier to feel the inner-body at certain times or while I’m doing certain activities. Let me see if I can remember when I could feel it most before I got good enough to feel it whenever I want. Hmmm, I do remember at least one. While I was Exercising the energy in my body moved around quite a bit and if I stopped exercising, either during a break or when I was done, I could feel the aliveness in my entire body all at once. You may think it’s just the blood coursing through the veins but when you really pay attention to the feeling you can tell that it’s so much more. Also try practicing at different times of the day and during different activities and figure out what works best for you.
Getting good at it
After a while of practicing during quiet times you can then use it to be more creative, tune into Source, bring you into the moment and help to diminish the pain-body by feeling your inner-body when the pain-body is active.
Just be gentle with yourself. I’ve found the classes with to be invaluable as a reminder during the week of what my goal is and I work more toward it. Not everyone becomes enlightened or looses their pain-body or ego overnight. The suffering that causes that is just way too intense and that’s why it works. Just be glad you have found these principles and can use them to free you from suffering and the pain-body now.
