Body Template is Easy Access to Higher Guidance

Did you experiment with using any of your energy bodies to receive guidance from your Higher Self?  Check out my last post for these four powerful portals if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

I believe that Higher Guidance is constantly in flow to us at all times and it’s a simple thing to receive.  The biggest barrier I’ve seen in my clients, and probably for myself in the past, is an expectation that their Higher Guidance should look a certain way.  Usually the expectation is to hear a voice.  What I now know is that Higher Guidance comes in many forms and to have an expectation about what it might look like is to limit yourself severely from receiving the font of guidance that is constantly streaming to you in all sorts of ways.

Here is a short video about how I used my physical energy body as a resource for guidance.  Maybe you’ll be surprised by how I played with receiving this guidance.

Want to learn more ways to tap into your Higher Guidance? What I demonstrate in the video is but one of the many simple tools I share in Play 4 Guidance.  My workshop is full of playful and simple, yet very powerful, exercises to receive clear, concrete and action-oriented information.  While you build your multisensory skill set, you learn to recognize a wide range of guidance, all of it completely individualized because it is coming from your Higher Self.  Won’t you join me?

Play 4 Guidance Austin Workshop

Sunday, January 23, 1:00 – 5:30 pm, Southwest Austin

Post a comment about your experience with this tool and receive The 4 Cornerstones for Channeling Your Higher Self e-book.

Here’s how you can experiment with your physical body template:

  • Move your body in some simple way such as lifting your arm or taking a step forward.  Now do it again, but this time don’t move your physical form, just let yourself notice moving your etheric form.  Fun, eh?  Practice this until it feels natural to notice both your physical form and your etheric form in movement.
  • Want to improve something about your movement style?  Say, you want improve your coordination or reduce some physical pain that occurs with movement.  Ask that your etheric body guide you in the movement.  See if you can let go of your need to control your body with your mind, and relax into an allowing state that “pulls” you in a direction that feels more in sync with your desires.  Observe the shifts that happen for you when you “let go.”

Stop Fixing, Start Emerging in 2011

Aacckk! I don’t care much for the “I’ve got to ‘fix’ myself energy” that surrounds the New Year.  Most of us know that New Year’s resolutions most often fail, usually by February!  My belief is  these resolutions come out of some “should’s & oughta’s” and not from  inner knowing.

Inner JoyInstead of “I need to fix myself,” consciously aware folks ask, “How might I know myself even better so that I can live a more continuous experience of feeling authentically me?”  This question recognizes there is nothing to be fixed, that our core (divine) self is always present, and that our evolvement is about allowing our core self to emerge more and more fully.

Especially at this time of year I tap into the various energy bodies to receive guidance.   These 4 portals – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy bodies – provide insights for what aspects of my life are ready to be released and what core strengths are ready to emerge.  This type of inquiry is well supported by the energies of the winter solstice, a time for illuminating our inner world.

Do you know how to sense your energy bodies?  I’ll guide you through a wonderful metaphor a friend of mine, Michael Nunnally, shared on the Consciousness Playground.  Note: as you connect with each energy body in its highest vibrational state, notice the “communication” you receive.  This is your guidance about what is ready to be released and what is ready to emerge.

  • Imagine yourself as a large glass container.
  • To get in touch with your PHYSICAL energy body, imagine large rocks in your container.  The density of these rocks correspond with your physical body.  Have you ever felt your body as coordinated, graceful, and in flow?  This is the higher vibrating physical body and the one you want to communicate with for guidance.
  • To get in touch with your MENTAL energy body, imagine pouring small pebbles into your container.  Notice that even though the large rocks filled the container there is room for these small pebbles to move down among the larger rocks. You know you are accessing the higher vibrating mental body when you feel “clear headed,” creative and focused.
  • Next, in your imagination pour sand into your container.  Once again, even though the container appears full, there are still spaces between the pebbles and the rocks and the sand filters down to fill these.  This represents your EMOTIONAL energy body and the way emotions affect us both physically and mentally.  Shift into your higher vibrating emotional body with feelings of appreciation, peace, joy and love.
  • Lastly, pour water into your container and watch as it washes through the rocks, pebbles and sand, coating every piece, visibly changing every thing it touches.  This is your SPIRITUAL energy body and is experienced in its highest vibration as a sense of divinity, connection and oneness.

What amazing and profound insights did you experience with this exercise?  I would love for you to share them here!

Would you like additional assistance in moving through these energy bodies?  Maybe you want some added support in understanding the communication process of these portals?

Join me in Play 4 Guidance in January.  I’m offering teleclasses and in person workshops in Austin where I guide participants to use these portals effectively.  I also teach several tools to help you harness and better utilize the communication that you receive.  Our focus is on receiving individualized guidance directly about 2011. You’ll leave this course with specific “next-steps” to move you purposely forward.

Action Steps to Use this Process Now:

  1. Sit quietly and breath deeply to center yourself.  Read the “script” above, one energy body at a time.  Notice what you notice with each energy body, then write it down.  At the end, let yourself sit with all that you have written, and then distill your guidance down to one or two sentences that create your next steps forward in 2011.
  2. Register and join me on Friday, January 7 at 1:00 CT to experience a portion of this process with a guide.

Mo’ to Learn from Your MO

One way to experience ourselves as multidimensional is to notice the energy body we most use to interact with the world in our daily lives.  We each have physical, mental, and emotional energy bodies, but usually one of these energy bodies acts as our modus operandi (MO), the energy state that feels the most natural to us.

You might guess that mine is the physical energy body.  I use physicality to engage with the people, places and happenings in my life.  If your MO is your mental energy body you might be drawn to think logically about whatever it is you are doing, be especially aware of your thoughts, patterns of information, and strive for understanding and knowledge.  An emotionally directed person often experiences emotions/feelings first, and then uses words, labels or meanings to define the emotion to understand life.  Emotion may be your MO if you have a keen sense of the way things “affect” you and others.

All of our energy bodies come into play with everything we do; however, one of them typically is your primary driver.  This is the video celebration of a mountain biking experience with friends.  Definitely the mental body kicked in to get me through this challenge of riding up a mountain, and the emotional body did a happy dance at the top, but it was the physical engagement that colored the totality of the experience.

This experience  got me to thinking about the different responses I have when I’m using my natural MO, and when I’m not.  Here are the questions I’ve been playing with for myself recently.

  • If doing something challenging on a physical level feels so enlivening, then why does challenge in my business feel like overwhelm?
  • What is the state of being, or perception filter, that makes physical challenges exciting and mental challenges draining?
  • How might my physical MO teach/train/condition my mental/emotional energy bodies to experience business challenges as enlivening and exciting?

Love the support I get from The Universe (; just look at my note today!

Visualize, show up, happy dance.  Celeste, you can do this.

Integrative Ideas for Discovering and Learning from your MO:

  1. What is your energy body MO?  Ask yourself what energy feels the most natural. When you are thinking about stuff?  Feeling emotionally connected?  Using physical form to engage?
  2. What skills or capacities does your MO hold that you value and appreciate?
  3. If these skills/capacities integrated into your other energy bodies, how might your life change?
