Your Body as a Metphor for Your Life

Your body is a revealing metaphor of your life.

Most people go through life without a complete awareness of what their body tells them, on a non-stop basis, about how they live in each moment.


This concept came through loud and clear for me recently.

As a writer I spend very many hours sitting in one position at the computer writing, right? Well, I’ve been writing since the age of six so sitting pretty still is not a new behavior for me. And I love what I do so enjoyment factors into not noticing any discomforts.

Yet in the past six months I started experiencing discomfort which continued to increase whenever I sat still for long periods. I am talking sitting at a movie, on a plane, etc. As a healthcare practitioner I knew my Spirit was trying to tell me something I did not want to recognize. Consequently it took me a while to “get” it.

Get it?

For the past six months I got my life so out of balance by spending way too much time working and way too little time flat out enjoying doing nothing that I created painful muscle imbalances. Even though I continue to do my daily workouts the discomfort turned into pain that even interrupted my ability to sleep.

Thank goodness I meditate every day—no matter what, meditation is the first thing I do every morning while running energy on myself. I find all kinds of answers during my time within.

I bet you already guessed that my muscle imbalance bespeaks my life imbalance.

So I thanked the Universe for not hitting me over the head with a two by four (as happened when I failed to get the life changing necessity message years ago until the Universe yelled at me creating the brain injury). As soon as I heard and acted on this message I instantly started to feel better.

What physical problems do you notice, when you allow yourself to pay attention to your body? What message is the Universe delivering to you in gentle whispers? When you miss the soft whispers the Universe gets louder and louder until it explodes in your face you know. Or maybe you didn’t know. Consider yourself for-warned. 😉

  • Hi Ali,

    thanks for sharing this – you’ve just mad me aware of how I’m ignoring the niggles in my lower back area when I sit at my computer too long without taking a walk-break.

    And I’ve also now become aware of just HOW uncomfortable my chair is – I’ve been getting an uncomfortable “rear” for a few weeks but just ignored it – time for a new chair, for sure!

    Take care of yourself!!
    Tracey 🙂

      Thanks, Tracey, for noticing AND, more importantly, acting to correct your discomfort before the Universe makes it painful. The proper chair certainly makes a huge difference when you sit and stzstarere at a computer all day. I can vouch for that fact. I’ve been away from home traveling since the ouches began. Perhaps that variable is tied in to a degree. Thanks for reminding me about that piece.
