I haven’t been one to dabble in different religions throughout life, but whilst I attended Catholic Secondary College I accumulated much experience with the Catholic Church, and in my senior years my interest in the many differing religions brought me to undertake a subject called the Study of Religion.
Whilst I could always see the similarities between the array of religious and spiritual beliefs that inhabit our world, I always felt that they were only bringing part truths but perhaps missing something, or missing the whole.
I wondered how we could all be equal if some are excluding of others? And how is it that people can preach certain rules or disciplines but not actually live them for themselves?
I also had to ask: if God is Love, how could there be any discrimination against people, degradation of women or even a lack of self-love and true care within our very homes if we considered ourselves to be love and so-called religious?
Because God is Love, there can be no punishment, no judgement and certainly we won’t be sent to the fiery depths of hell for not being perfect, when perfection doesn’t even exist!
Through this modality I claim the light that I am and feel a freedom or expansion in my shoulders that feels like I have wings. Right through to my feet there is a fullness of the natural flow and rhythm that my body’s connective tissue just knows how to be – every cell within me feels like Divinity.
When I connect to myself and to the very core of my being, which I call my essence or my Soul, I know exactly what it feels like to be held in God’s love and I am reminded that I am held in grace and absoluteness at all times. I sense the very glimpse of what it truly feels like to hold everyone else as equal Sons of God too, whether they choose to know God or not.
I cannot help but feel that we are brothers and that this makes us all one and the same.
In my Esoteric Connective Tissue therapy sessions I am fully supported to feel the lightness and acceptance of who I am as a Son of God on earth, and this forms a marker to carry with me wherever I go.
Whether I feel aches, pains or tension in my body or get caught in the tension of my day, nothing changes the fact that my body knows how to naturally align to love and flow accordingly.
As we know, the universe naturally moves in cycles and rhythms all of the time, and as our bodies are made up of the same particles as our universe, I realise I have this same opportunity to choose to live with awareness of my own cycles and rhythms every day. I can accept and let go of that which does not feel supportive for me, choosing to honour my body, my delicate exquisite connective tissue, to choose to align to God and embody love once more.
My body and the way that I live, is Religion.
I live religiously each day through the choices I make to connect deeply to myself and thus to God and his love.
With this understanding, and thanks to the teachings and presentations of Universal Medicine together with the many healing modalities I have studied, I now know the true and whole meaning of religion on a very personal level.
Religion resides in my very own body, in the graceful way in which I choose to live, to move and in the choices I make to reconnect to the love that I am. It is then through this quality, which I bring to my every movement, that I can consistently confirm my connection back to God and Religion.
In deep appreciation to Serge Benhayon and Kate Greenaway (physiotherapist and Esoteric Connective Tissue therapy extraordinaire) for their consistent and supportive approach in inspiring many to reconnect to the wisdom held deeply within our own physical bodies.
