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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. ‘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.

  5. 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 ✨

  6. 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?

  7. AM your writings are stunning. How can we ever dishonour walking the Godliness we innately are through our divinely constellated bodies, to let through the vibration of Heaven to light up this world.

  8. To remind ourselves that we, our particles, are part of the universe, is first step in feeling that we are part of grander whole. It is the first step in being connected to God, and feeling Gods, ourselves.

  9. We are masters in abusing our bodies. When we see each other as custodians of our bodies, custodians of the particles that make up our bodies, that connect us to God, taking care of your body takes a totally different perspective. At least, it does for me.

  10. It feels ok to lend our body to others when we don’t really know what else to do, but in my experience that is a very bad idea.

  11. “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”.
    
And

    “These particles come from God and are God. So I am God too. And so are you”.

    Made me feel teary in how we dishonour and disrespect our bodies, when we are much more than this.

  12. AM – I have loved what you have shared here, it is true we give our bodies away to many things other than the sacredness it originates from. I think this blog was timely for me as I was wondering about what I was doing or living as it feels so exhausted with everything. The a-ha moment, who am I in all of this that goes around me.

  13. “I am the custodian of these particles, and the space they occupy in the universe.” A beautiful understanding of our responsibility as part and particle of the Universe.

  14. To connect with the feeling of our particles… This is such a wonderful experience… it sounds so ephemeral, and yet it is clear and concise, profound and connecting… A feeling of the wonder of the connection with God

  15. We have given our body away for aeons! We have given them away to be trashed and used by forces that have nothing to do with Love – simply because the human spirit wants its way. Time to say ‘no’ to all this abuse and lead the way back home.

  16. Such an expansive way to look at ourselves, AM – the fact that we are so much more than flesh and bone and that we are made up of particles that belong to the universe.

  17. There is nothing like reading text and pondering on the grandness that we are. Who would believe we have the same make up as God. It is in fact the science of the universe that evolution is about expanding space – expanding the space in our bodies. How do we do that? Through healing and not harming ourselves …

  18. One of the most profound and beautiful experiences that we can have is to feel this deep and abiding connection with every part of this… This amazing body, and this really is an experience of the particles of God

  19. How beautiful that one line became change our lives… Just imagine if we all lived in a way that the quality of our expression became so powerful that this happens all around us all the time… This is not a pipe dream but an absolute possibility if we so choose.

  20. In the awareness and realisation of the bigger picture within the universe, life takes on an entirely different focus and purpose knowing the responsibility we all have, to commit to fulfilling our part within it.

  21. A powerful reminder of the love we can return to ourselves at any given moment – by acknowledging our physical body as the divine vessel that it is. Abuse in the world today as it plays out in its myriad of grotesque forms is the mere final result of the original seed of abuse we plant in ourselves – to ignore, dis-regard and disrespect the body we enhouse during this incarnation, a body that has been given to us by God.

  22. Seeing and knowing that our body, and all its particles are divine, and belong to the universe changes our perspective on how to treat our bodies. Our bodies are our connection to know and feel God.
