We all have a physical body, emotional body and mental body and they all influence each other. I’m sure you’ve had the experience where alot of mental stress (mental) makes your irritable (emotional) and exhausted (physical), or when eating too much sugar (physical) and made you feel agitated (emotional) and not thinking straight (mental). There are many examples you can think of where it’s clear that one body is affecting the others.

You can use this to your advantage. If one body is feeling down, use the other two bodies to bring it back up. For instance, if you are down-in-the-dumps emotionally, use your physical and mental bodies to bring yourself back up. Instead of sitting glued to your seat in a slumping position, change your physiology! Stand up, push your chest out and takes deep breaths. Instead of telling yourself how miserable you are, change your thinking! Tell yourself what you want, not what you don’t want. “I can change this! It’s just energy and I can bring it up again.” Think of a time when you felt really, really good or think of something you really love to do. Start thinking of everything you are grateful for, and it will be impossible to stay in a slump.

If you’re mentally stressed, use your physical and emotional bodies to help it relax. Take deep breaths, think of a relaxing time at the beach or in a spa. Feel yourself there and and bring back that physical and emotional state. Realize that everything you are doing, you’re doing in the present moment, right now. Feel your body, feel the air against your skin, feel your breathing.

If you’re physically ill, use your mental and emotional bodies to enhance your health. Visualize your body healed, deeply feel how wonderful you feel in good health. Remind yourself how your amazing body is healing on many levels and encourage it. Your immune system will respond. Your vitality will go up. Your subconscious will know what to do and be fully inspired to heal.

As you go through your day and encounter challenges, ask yourself what your three bodies are experiencing and use them to help each other. The more you do this, the more mastery you will achieve and the more empowered your life will be.
