Becoming Bodyful - My Spiritual Journey

Becoming Bodyful has been an incredible journey into the fullness of whom I believe God created me to be. I experience Bodyfulness as an awakened state of living in my body that allows me to sense the Divine presence of God flowing in me and all around me.

 

My training as a Dance/Movement Therapist, counselor, and energy medicine practitioner, along with my Christian faith, have dramatically influenced my Bodyful journey.  

 

The more I studied the power of movement, mindfulness, energy medicine, scripture, Christian mysticism, and new developments in brain science, the more I experienced how fearfully and wonderfully I am made! I learned that everything is energy. Energy is in our DNA and every cell in our body.  How we think, believe, express, and relate with others emmets a specific frequency.   

 

Through further reflection, I began to experience myself beautifully knit together with nested layers of relationships between my body, mind, Spirit, and faith.  

 

I discovered that all layers are interconnected within this nested system and continually communicate through the energy flow from my awareness, intentions, movement, thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and relationships.  

 

Strengthening and deepening my relationship with each layer and heightening my awareness of the dynamic flow of relationships between ALL of the layers was essential. It has led me toward wholeness, healing, and well-being. 

However, I deepened my sense of Bodyfulness, even more when my relationship with Spirit grew more intimate through my faith. I awakened to the Spirit of God, the Christ, as a Divine loving energy living inside me.  

Being introduced to the book "The Universal Christ" by Father Richard Rohr was life-changing for me! This book deeply impacted my Bodyful journey. It immediately felt like God was speaking to me in the depth of my soul when I read it. This book validated what my body had revealed to me since childhood and what my clinical work as a Dance/Movement Therapist taught me daily through experiencing embodied connections with others. That there was Divine presence in everyone and ALL creation!

The scripture verse from Colossians 3:11 rocked my world: "There is only Christ. Christ is all and in all." The "Word made flesh" has become the universe's very nature and lives in me! But through sin and distress, I had become disconnected from my very nature and Divine union with God in my body. I needed Divine support to reconnect me!

Jesus reconnected me to my body through faith and awakened this Spirit in me! Sensing the Spirit of God as energy incarnate in me as a "WE" (Christ in me) and ALL creation was transformative! Heightening my awareness of the "Universal Christ" and my deepening "personal relationship with Jesus" helped me begin to understand and embody the FULL Christ mystery.

I discovered that I am a beloved child of God, filled with the Spirit of God.

Read through the layers of my journey:

As my Bodyful journey ensued, I learned to awaken this Divine loving energy through cultivating body-filled awareness, faith-filled thoughts, and a strong attachment to Jesus.  As I carefully studied Jesus' body, He showed me how to live in my body and surrender to God through my body.

 

I discovered that when I sensed, believed, received, and surrendered to this Divine loving energy, it flowed through all the layers of me, permeating and integrating me. I repeatedly practiced staying connected to God through my body by living in a state of  "Divine flow."

 

 I developed a "felt sense" of God in my body and ALL creation. My world became technicolor and soaked with the presence of Christ! I began to see the depth and beauty of myself and life through a new reality. I began to experience the fullness of life  

 

This Divine flow was creating a Bodyful me.  

What a blessing this has been for me.

 

I have become deeply rooted, open-hearted, and aware.

My Bodyful journey has revealed my true self to me.

I invite you to open the gift of your body too.

I would be so honored to be a gentle guide on your journey with you.

You can become Bodyful too!
