Claiming Back My Body

I have been a master of lending my body in the service of others – of allowing others to do what they need to do with it to survive. I have seen my body as something that is not just for me, but also for everyone – in a way that has been at the great expense of me.

I would never knowingly abuse another person, or allow another to be abused, but I have willingly accepted abuse from others, and have certainly abused myself.

I have done this in many ways: in my role as the ‘good daughter’, ‘always available lover’, ‘do-anything-for-you friend’, ‘24/7 mother’, ‘caring doctor’ and ‘devoted wife’.

Well, all that is about to change.

My body is not just a vessel for myself or others to use as they will and discard when they are done.

My body is not just flesh, blood and bone that will die with me.

My body is made of particles of the Universe – particles that have been here since the beginning of time. These particles came from the stars, and have made up many bodies before mine, and will be in many bodies hereafter.

I am the custodian of these particles, and the space they occupy in the universe. I am responsible for this space, and for what happens on it, around it, and within it.

Knowing this, changes everything. It makes life far less personal, and far more lovely and grand. It makes it easier to see the big picture, and the part that I play in it. It makes me stop and think before I do anything that may harm – me or anyone or anything else.

What sort of food will support this space in the universe?

What type of drink will I let flow through its vessels and into its every cell?

What kind of thoughts will I allow in here?

How will I move these particles that make me up?

Am I truly appreciating what I have been given here?

When I see myself in this way, I see myself as God. Not in a mad or grandiose way, but as a matter of fact. These particles come from God and are God. So I am God too. And so are you.

  1. Very true Elizabeth, if we abuse the body we are calling in an energy which can then abuse other people. Through taking care of ourselves, we actually build an armour which cannot be penetrated by evil and we are therefore able to make sure that no harm is done onto others.

  2. “You are God, and so am I” – how many people give real consideration to what this phrase means? In our diluted perception of who God is, we dilute our perception of who we are.

  3. Thank you. A beautiful invitation to be aware of the responsibility we have for the particles of our body that are part of the Universe.

    1. Yes responsibility for our own body, for its divine particles, and no to abuse, ‘I would never knowingly abuse another person, or allow another to be abused, but I have willingly accepted abuse from others, and have certainly abused myself.’

    1. Many people are not consciously aware that abuse can be all around them, ‘I have done this in many ways: in my role as the ‘good daughter’, ‘always available lover’, ‘do-anything-for-you friend’, ‘24/7 mother’, ‘caring doctor’ and ‘devoted wife’.’

  4. “When I see myself in this way, I see myself as God. Not in a mad or grandiose way, but as a matter of fact. These particles come from God and are God. So I am God too. And so are you.”
    Perceiving, understanding and appreciating that our bodies are composed of particles of God, and hence we are also God is ……… (I do not seem able to find a word or words to express the magnificence of this)

  5. Our bodies are precious. Claiming back your body and treating it as part of the universe rather than something to flog until it drops is a huge turnaround and offers not only health but also wellbeing.

    1. It is important to look after and cherish our bodies, ‘My body is made of particles of the Universe – particles that have been here since the beginning of time. These particles came from the stars, and have made up many bodies before mine, and will be in many bodies hereafter.’

  6. This is a great way of looking at our bodies – that we have been lent these particles for a time, and we can choose what we do with them before returning them to the Universe. It brings responsibility down to a very micro level and encourages me to make the most of this opportunity.. and improve the feeling for the next occupant!

  7. What you are presenting here is a great stop moment – how do we really see ourselves and our bodies? Do we just see physical function or do we realise that our bodies are an amazing, super wise tool in life?

  8. “I am the custodian of these particles, and the space they occupy in the Universe. I am responsible for this space, and for what happens on it, around it, and within it” – oh, wow. This really does change everything.

    1. Yes, what am I going to do to support this vehicle and its particles, ‘
      What sort of food will support this space in the universe?
      What type of drink will I let flow through its vessels and into its every cell?’

  9. Spot on Brendan, how different all our relationships would be and our understanding of life if we lived responsible lives – a flow on effect that supports everyone.

  10. Living with this awareness brings a greater responsibility to what our true purpose is, without it we can easily harm and abuse the body and move further away from our connection to divinity and God.

  11. A great reminder of the responsibility we have over the space we allow our body to be in, and how important our choices are, because they all come back to the body.

    1. The responsibility we have over our body, and the space it occupies, ”I am the custodian of these particles, and the space they occupy in the universe. I am responsible for this space, and for what happens on it, around it, and within it.’

  12. We tend to think that our bodies are new, freshly made. Yet, they are made of particles that were there since the beginning of times and who have been part of many physical bodies so far. When we consider the body as a new thing, there is a sense of belonging: we belong to a race and a family. When we look at the particles, a truth gets revealed: we belong to (and are part of) the universe. We were, are and will be universal beings.

  13. ‘My body is made of particles of the Universe’ … so there is so much more to how we are with it than just our own mere convenience and that of others. It asks the question how do we treat God, for our bodies are of God.

  14. Seeing our body as space in the Universe and therefore how important it is to take care of this space. Stunning. Now that is what I call claiming ✨

    1. How do we take care of this space, how responsible are we, ‘What kind of thoughts will I allow in here?
      How will I move these particles that make me up?

  15. Wow this gives a completely different viewpoint on how we see our bodies, if we considered our bodies this way I’m pretty sure all our standards would change, how could you mistreat something made of particles that comes from ancient stars in the universe?
