Honor your Three Treasures
I came across this beautiful tree while taking a walk, It had 3 equally balanced trunks coming from a single trunk at the base. This reminded me of how we must keep our body, mind, and spirit balanced to maintain optimal health and well-being.
The Ancient Chinese healers taught that to build and maintain health, we should be mindful of our 3 treasures: the body, mind, and spirit, and check in on them throughout the day.
The Body is grounded in the physical realm. It reaches deep and creates roots to create stability and feel connected. Pay attention to your body what does it need? Where is it holding tension? How can you relax? Does your body need nourishment?
The Spirit is connected to the unseen realms of energy and information. Your spirit reaches upward to connect with Source energy. Pay attention to your spirit, are you connected? Are you taking time to pray or mediate and commune with Spirit each day? Have you connected with your heart center today?
Your Mind is free to roam in either world. But it must be carefully watched by your spirit to make sure it does not get off track. Pay attention to your thoughts. What are you dwelling on? Are you being too analytical, or do you need to be more creative? Be careful, as the mind likes to be the leader, and if allowed to do so will often neglect the body or spirt.
Find the balance. Health, strength, and vitality are created when we learn to nurture and balance body, mind, and spirit.
When approaching the subject of natural healing many people ask me “where do I begin”? The answer lies first and foremost in activating the healing response in a person. This includes is their inner desire to heal, as well as outward changes in diet or lifestyle which triggers the body to heal itself. Activating the healing response is the change from a destructive downward spiral, to an upward building and renewing cycle. Along with diet and lifestyle changes I teach my clients to be mindful of their 3 treasures for in doing so you become conscious of your role, and your power to maintain your health.
