Given what's occurring on the planet now, our breath, touch and movement may be affected. There is this approach that is being administered to the population that in order to "be safe" from biological threats we must restrict our breath (by "masking" so as to protect others in the event that we were to be carrying something, that if it were to be transmitted could be harmful), minimize touch (proximity to others increases risk) and limit our movement (because movement increases "exposure" and could spread the virus at a faster rate). Consider the message that our bodies are being given based on these recommendations. Essentially...you're dangerous, you're a threat, you're a potential weapon that could cause harm or even death, you should be very careful and not get close to people.
So, as we acknowledge what's being advised to keep us and others safe it's a great opportunity to check in to see whether this strategy includes love. If not, how can we include love in our approach to our health and safety and in the ways in which we contribute to the well-being of those around us? How can we demonstrate love in our nurture and care of our bodies, and in our interactions with others? We can be the ones to cherish, appreciate, honour and celebrate our breath, touch and movement. We can learn how to attune our breath to the pulse of life itself, to the majesty of the natural intelligence, and to the wisdom of the elements. We can acknowledge the healing capacities of our touch and our body's ability to transmit warmth, share intimacy and be an agent of peace and calm. We can invite grace into our movements and harmony into our lives. Here and now we can be the antidotes, the medicine, the reminders and the presence of a different approach, a different way that is in service to the well-being of all. Here and now I welcome BODY LOVE to show itself through all forms and enrich and deepen our relationship with life.
