The Joy of Being Human

The Joy of Being Human

Many Lightworkers or other spiritual people look forward to the day that they have transcended the human body. That transcendence may look different for people based on their belief system. However, it usually includes no longer being in a physical body or no longer being on the planet.

What if instead of looking to transcend the body, we focus on healing our beliefs around being in a physical body and embrace the joy of our physical bodies?

Our cultures, societies, religions and philosophies have definite beliefs regarding what the physical body should look like and what actions and feelings are appropriate for the human body. In contrast to these more mainstream beliefs, there are many books, movement practices and ways of being that focus on finding the core beliefs (false beliefs) that might be holding us back from realizing how divine and perfect the human body is as a vehicle for this experience.

In Standing in the Light®, we use the meditation called “Invocation to the Unified Chakra” to help us open up and merge with all the different aspects of our multidimensional self. This invocation was first channeled from Archangel Ariel through Tashira Tachi-ren in the book What is Lightbody? It is a very powerful meditation.

We are guided to use it in the Standing in the Light® classes and private sessions because it focuses on expansion of the energy within us and a merging of the emotional, mental and spiritual bodies with the physical body. It does not ask us to leave the physical body behind nor to lift our energy off the planet. It focuses on knowing and being the Light here in a physical body.

In one of the stanzas the Invocation to the Unified Chakra states:

I breathe in Light

Through the center of my heart,

Allowing the Light to expand,

Encompassing my eighth chakra

(Above my head)

And my upper thighs

In one unified field of Light

Within, through, and around my body.

I allow my emotional body to merge

With my physical body.

I AM a unity of Light.

In order to truly heal all aspects of ourselves, we need to recognize and love the full experience of being human which means recognizing and loving our physical body. What action steps do you need to take to start to enjoy and love your body? Is it to dance more, laugh more, walk more, luxuriate more, and sleep more? What about judging less, criticizing less and comparing less?

What do you need to believe or do to help you know the joy of being human? Find your joy and be your joy. Let us seize the day and be grateful for being in a human body.
