What Does it Mean to be Balanced?


Last time we talked about our thoughts and how they can bring discontent to the body. I had quite the awakening about this.  I fell and hurt my knee and immediately thought the worst.  I was in pain and very frustrated with myself. Let’s just say, I was a bit angry at the situation!  It was not until I realized that my thoughts had the power to make this experience miserable or something I could learn from. So, how do we change our negative thoughts?  How can we bring balance despite our circumstance?  Here is what spirit has to say about what balance of self means…

Bringing yourself back into balance does not have to mean a radical change.  It can mean learning to understand yourself.  It can mean learning to understand why you suffer from your thoughts.  Balance comes from taking the time to analyze, understand, and look at all aspects of your being.  It is to understand that you have all the tools you need to bring the physical body back into alignment, the mental body back into a peaceful state, and the spiritual body back into pure energy and consciousness.  If you were to look at yourself as these three essential elements—the elements that bring you to living a balanced life, you would spend time thinking about what it means for you.  To be balanced is what leads to peacefulness within self.  We all have the capacity to do this.  It is all about the attention given to self and what it means to be balanced.  Use the spiritual, physical, and mental as a way to see yourself as one being.  This will always lead you to where you need to go.  This will always be what brings you to peace.  This will always be a way to understand your true nature and the nature of others.

I love this visual:  Think of a triangle with you in the center.  “Spiritual” above your head, “Mental” on the right side of your feet, and “Physical” on the left side of your feet.  If you think about each of these aspects, you will notice that when one is out of balance, so too are the others. When I am in pain, my thoughts are of suffering.  When my thoughts are of suffering, I do not feel connected to my spiritual self.  When I am not connected to my spiritual self and think of myself as only as a physical being, I tend to hurt more. And on and on it goes.

So what specifically can we do to stop this cycle of suffering?  This will be what we will explore in my next blog.  In the meantime, I hope you will think about what these three essential elements of self mean to you.

Always Be You, Trisha
