Are you ready to consider a different point of view?
What if your body is actually made up of four bodies?
Your physical body:
Cells, organs, tissues and structures
Your emotional body:
Feelings and emotions
Your mental body:
Thoughts and beliefs
Your spiritual body:
Energy and connection to all things (earth/self, what we might refer to as God, the universe, the divine and/or the higher self)
If you accept this idea, even if just for the sake of exploring it as one of many possibilities, you will discover new avenues to a joyful life.
When all four bodies are in balance, we have the opportunity to experience life with ease, calm, empathy, certainty, creativity, unity, openness, flexibility and generosity.
Does this sound appealing?
Here are a few strategies to help you make progress towards getting all four bodies into balance:
- Barefoot or bare hand earth play with dirt, water or sand
- Movement like yoga, stretching, or exercises that lets you feel the strength in your body
- Meditation, dance, emotional release or watching comedy routines
- Talk therapy or non-judgmental conversations with friends and family
- Gratitude practice
If you want to explore this idea of the Four Bodies in more depth, I recommend the work of Jill Willard which is nicely summarized here.
Have a smarter day, a smarter week and a smarter life,

A love note from your future self:
When you were a child all four of your bodies were naturally in balance. This means that you already know what it’s like. All you need to do is gift yourself time to relax and reconnect with nature as much as you can.
Love, from your future self.
