Panpsychism is an ancient philosophy, which regards all things as conscious living beings. This means that any substance containing atoms is alive. Therefore, panpsychists consider the universe replete with consciousness. This definition includes the human body. The organs, cells, and systems that comprise our spiritual container have their own awareness.
The Body Alive Principle is a concept that contends medical illnesses may be cured or comfortably managed through a respectful relationship with our body intelligences. This unique practice uses popular alternative therapeutic techniques to activate the healing process. These modalities include mindfulness meditation, empathetic listening, creative visualization, and positive commands. All of these techniques teach the practitioner to communicate effectively with his or her body.
There are two important terms used by the Body Alive Principle; these are “little minds” and “super mind”. The little minds are the cells of our body. They are the foot soldiers. Each has its own consciousness independent of the body’s hive mentality. At the same time, the little minds know that they must have unity in order to operate efficiently. The organs are like the higher minds of the body. The organs and systems have a special consciousness of their own. For the most part, our insides get their job done without our assistance. The little minds hate being micro-managed. They know how to do their jobs. It’s when there is a problem, or a malfunction, that they need our supervision. This is when we find ourselves in the doctor’s office.
At times, the body may need our involvement in order to get things back on track. This requires leadership skills. The little minds look to the super mind for direction. It’s important for the super mind to assert its authority when it is called for. The little minds will only obey the super mind if trust is established. Trust is instilled through the exceptional behavior of the super mind. The super mind must conduct its business according to rules of fairness and honesty. The most important quality a great leader possesses is integrity. By working on our integrity, we bring balance to our entire body.
What we fail to realize is that the body is its own best physician. The body can cure its own ills. The Body Alive Principle makes this happen through the application of empathetic listening and positive communication. This exchange takes place using the platform of our imagination. By visualizing the injured area of the body, we can positively command the organs, and cells responsible to clean up its quarters. Self-hypnosis is employed in this process.
Listening to the complaints and concerns of the little minds is a critical point. If the little minds feel stifled or unheard, they will go on strike. All entities need to be recognized. They want others to acknowledge their existence. The body is no different. The best thing you can do for your health is appreciate your body. Special attention to your body will go a long way.
