Posted: Fri 04/19/2013 12:00 AM
Can you feel the inherent aliveness in your body? Can you feel that your hands are alive? Your legs? Your feet? Your arms? Most people are astonished when they recognize the spiritual energy in their physical body. But it’s a crucial realization to make, because this energy can take you out of your thinking mind.
Fortunately, it’s not difficult to feel this aliveness. To start, close your eyes and hold either your right or your left hand. Don’t touch anything. Just stay put, without moving your hand. Then, after a few moments, ask yourself, “How do I know whether my hand is still there or not?” With your eyes shut, the only way you can know it exists is by directing your attention to it. Once your attention is focused on your hand, you will feel suddenly feel the energy presence. Then you’ll begin to feel the energy in the rest of your body: your feet, your legs, you arms and everywhere. You’ll feel a global sense of aliveness.
This sense may resembling tingling, but it’s more subtle. What you’re feeling is that your entire body being alive with energy, and this energy is a portal to experiencing the present moment—the space in which all life unfolds and where is peace is found.
