Do you spend most of your time inside or outside of your body? If you know what I’m talking about then I can almost certainly say that you have spent some time outside of your body.
What does it even mean to “be outside” of one’s body? Well, in order to appreciate what this means you must have an experience of your “Self” first and then you must be able to “feel” where that “Self” is geographically speaking.
So let’s start with the first part. In order to get an experience of your “Self” think of some quality or characteristic that you like about yourself. Then spend some time appreciating yourself for this quality or characteristic.
Now as you do this notice where you experience the feelings of appreciation. Do these feelings feel like they’re inside you or outside of you? Now most people will feel such feelings inside the boundaries of their bodies (i.e. the definition of the word “inside”).
There are some of you however who may experience such feelings outside of the physical body. If you do then this is an indication of where you are in relation to your body. That is because “you” are doing the appreciating and therefore the location of those feelings correspond to where you are.
Now the “you” I’m referring to is the “life energy” that is you. So if this life energy that is you is outside of your physical body what is the consequence to your physical body of you existing outside of it?
In order to appreciate the answer to this question notice how your body feels to you when you find yourself outside of it. If you are able to carry out this observation I think you will recognize that your physical body will appear and feel de-energized. Another way of saying that is that your physical body is lacking the life energy that is required to sustain it in health. In other words it is dying!
Are you surprized? Well you really shouldn’t be because most of you at some time or other find yourself outside of your bodies. How do I know this? I know it because if you look at your physical body you’ll notice that it has been aging and another way of saying this is that it has been dying. Yes, aging and dying are the same thing, although many of us prefer to hide this fact from ourselves by using the more “graceful” former term.
What is it that causes us to leave our bodies unattended even for a brief moment? Well if you notice how it feels to be in your body when there is pain or emotional hurt in it you will recognize that this experience is not a pleasant one. It is at these times that we often want to be as far away from the pain as possible.
The “belief” is that by getting as far away from our bodies the better we will feel. From the discussion above that is like saying: “death will bring me peace”. How does that feel to you?
In my experience as a psychiatrist and healer I have observed how individuals who have experienced trauma of one sort or another during their lives have made such a choice to abandon their bodies.
At the same time it doesn’t require one to experience severe or acute trauma in order for one to make this choice. Over one’s life time the small misfortunes and dissapointments that we all experience and contribute to our rising stress levels have the exact same effect.
That effect is to seduce us into believing that leaving our bodies unattended thereby making them vulnerable to aging and death is going to make us feel better. I have never noticed in all my years as a physician anyone who felt good as they were dying.
In order for your body to remain healthy and for you to feel good your body requires “you” to remain in it at all times!
Hence the solution to the discomfort you have stored in your body as emotional trauma is NOT to leave the body, it is to purge the trauma!
