It is a breakthrough in our understanding of ourselves and our place in the world to discover that our body has access to information beyond what the mind can understand. The body feels the world energetically. The body feels and the mind thinks; these are two different ways of obtaining information. When we rely only on the mind and our logic we close ourselves off to a huge source of information. We become partial selves and cannot fully feel what we should be doing in life. You could call this too much thinking and not enough feeling.
In my book Quantum Warrior – The Future of the Mind I explain how one of the mythic titles of the body is Navigator to our Destiny. The reason it has this title is that we can only find our true destiny by trusting and following our instincts and feelings. It is this faculty that will reveal these insights to us not our mind. This is backed by scientific experiments; one experiment was by neuroscientist Antonio Damasio who devised a test that measured our ability to process information. He found that the body can feel and process information many times faster than the mind. In other words our gut feelings and hunches should be listened to. The body influences rational thought without our even being aware of the process. Is this good news? You bet it is. We, as human beings, are multi dimensional beings with a conscious mind, a subconscious, a soul and a BODY and this body is capable of guiding us in all areas of our life if we tune into it. Trust and act upon what your deep feelings are telling you and you will be led in extraordinary directions.
Our body is our navigator to our destiny.
One of the mystic titles of the body (from Quantum Warrior – The Future of the Mind) is navigator to our destiny. Only our body can reveal our destiny to us. Our mind can try to “figure out” what is our destiny but this is not how we find it. We discover our destiny by trusting our feelings and letting them guide us to do what “feels right.” We should always ask ourselves “Does it feel right?” in every major decision in our life and if it doesn’t question ourselves as to why we are making this decision. Body wisdom is the wisdom of knowing without using our mind. It is intuitive, connecting us to our deeper selves and far more reliable than logic.
