Well-Being encompasses all our parts, not just the physical body. When our emotions are in turmoil or our mind is bombarded with obsessive thoughts our health is compromised. It is important to create balance in your life by nurturing your whole person, which includes spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical needs.
There are countless examples of imbalance in our own culture. The star athlete, driving himself so hard he seems to hate his own body: he has abundant physical strength, but no self-love to nurture. The actress, undergoing excessive surgery in a fruitless chase for youth: she lacks the intuition to understand she is ultimately harming herself. Leaders, so steeped in their own power that they disrespect everyone else, lacking the intelligence to live in grace.
But with LOVE, intuition, physical power, and intelligence, all in balance, each power does its part to take care of us.
Love gives us spiritual strength, physical power, and good thoughts about life. If you can look at everything lovingly, the whole world becomes beautiful in your experience.,to be surrounded by a loving community: you feel like you can do anything. It’s a power we can embrace, grounding our souls and enabling us to pursue our goals.
Every action that we do is in some way to fulfill certain needs. If you see this, there is a possibility that you can grow into love as your natural quality. But people go on fooling themselves into believing that the relationships they have made for convenience, comfort and wellbeing, are actually relationships of love. I am not saying there is no experience of love at all in those relationships, but it is within certain limitations. It does not matter how much “I love you” has been said, if a few expectations and requisites are not fulfilled, things will fall apart.
Pretty much everyone has experienced a gut feeling — that unconscious reasoning that propels us to do something without telling us why or how. But the nature of intuition has long eluded us, and has inspired centuries’ worth of research and inquiry in the fields of philosophy and psychology.
Our intuition is always there, whether we’re aware of it or not
It’s that part of our higher self that’s connected to wisdom, knowledge, and an awareness of who we truly are.
In this modern world, it dwells in all of us: a psychic ability, or an inner instinct, that comes from our hearts. When we’re facing a crossroads, we need to listen to our hearts, not our minds. It’s the heart that tells us what we truly need to know.
It will allow you to do things that you wouldn’t or couldn’t normally do if you were weak and fragile.
Physical strength is different for everyone, but it’s good for all of us
It will help improve muscle and joint functions, increase bone density, elevate sinking hormone levels, and create a sense of well-being with far-reaching benefits. That flush of post-workout contentment actually boosts our immune system. Physical strength brings natural resiliency to body and soul and connects us to the physical “body” of Earth.
There are many ways to bring these powers into our lives. Here’s a simple four-step exercise:
- Sit down comfortably. Imagine the four powers as the four directions: north, south, east, and west. Start by visualizing the nerika — the soul’s doorway — as a circle that connects you outward, literally and emotionally, into those four directions.
- Travel into the circle. Visualize a deer — your higher self and guide — in the center, guiding you toward the east, and look for the image of the rising sun, bursting through clouds.
- Ask the deer to bring any one of the four powers into your circle of life, whether you want to start with love, intuition, intelligence, or physical strength.
- With each power, imagine it coming into your circle from a different direction. Imagine the deer guiding it into your own heart, and experience the feeling each brings
