The Pleasure of Having a Body by Shauna Teaken

It sounds a little bit naughty, a little bit exciting, but truly, that is what having a body is meant to be. It is meant to be this fun, joyous, enthusiastic, joyful, pleasurable thing. 

Your body is actually a big pleasure organ!

Has anyone mentioned that before?

Most religions have been saying for thousands of years that to be a good person, you must overcome your body’s desires and do not give in to your body and, one day you will get your reward if you are really good and resist, resist, resist temptation! 

Trouble is, the reward is supposed to come once your body is dead!

What happens when we start relaxing and enjoying our bodies more, now?

Does that sound a bit naughty? Want to try?

Thirty Seconds to Bliss

Take a deep breath in, pull energy down through your head, through your brain, your neck, your back, and out through your feet and into the floor and into the earth. Have a big sigh as you breath out.

You probably did that as quick as you read it. It’s a natural capacity, this connecting with our bodies and the earth. 

Now, take it a step further, and on your next breath, pull energy up from the earth, through your whole body and out the top of your head like a big fountain. 

Relax. Give yourself permission to relax.

Let the energy flow continuously through your body.

Turn the energy to gold. Don’t try to picture it, just do it.

A continuous, flowing, soft stream of gold passing through every cell. Relaaaaxxx.

I call it “Thirty Seconds to Bliss™” because that’s really all it takes, anywhere, anytime, to take a breath or two and connect your body and being with the earth.

These Energy Flows are the foundation of the pleasures of having a body, and bring us to the awareness that we all have this natural capacity to be the energy of nature and the Earth.  

The more you practice moving this energy through your body, through every cell in your body and every pore of your being – the more relaxation, ease and pleasure your body can have, and it overflows into all areas of living. 

Not only is it healing and rejuvenating physically, this ‘feeling good in your body’ – can allow you to enjoy your relationships with money, people, your body, business, the Earth. Actually it’s the key to having everything you would like to have, including a planet that is sustainable.
