Daily Angel Oracle Card: Physical Body, from the Universal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno
Physical Body: “Your body, which is your vehicle on the Earth plane, has a voice. It tells you what it needs. So pay attention to your body and what it is trying to tell you. If some part of it is out of balance or blocked, it will let you know. Be loving and gentle with your body, nurture and respect it and above all, watch your thoughts. Be aware of what you are thinking. The next time you have a negative or critical thought about any part of you, stop and change that thought to a loving and accepting one. Be grateful and thank your body for all it does for you.
Close your eyes. Take a slow deep breath and let it flow into every part of you. Relax your body, relax your thoughts and imagine each breath as a soothing, glowing light that is healing every part of you.
Negative thoughts, emotions and attitudes can often be the root cause of many diseases. So allow only positive thoughts to flourish. As your beliefs and attitudes change, so too will your body.”*

Sending positive, loving, healing and accepting messages to your physical body can help it to heal. Sending messages of criticism, distaste, anger, frustration or resentment can perpetuate dis-ease and cause blockages and stagnancy. How are you treating your physical vessel? With reverence and respect? Or are you punishing it for not being what you would like it to be? Are you angry that it doesn’t look like a Victoria Secret model? Or are you grateful that it gets you where you need to go? Or do you take it for granted and feel disconnected or ungrounded?
Our physical bodies are valuable assets in this incarnation, yet we do take them for granted. We live in a society that values beauty over health, sportsmanship over intelligence and unfortunately in many cultures the male over the female. What we don’t realize, is that our physical bodies are part of our lesson in this lifetime. We actually chose them at a Soul level. Yes, really! Our physical incarnation can teach us so much in the material realm. It can teach us to overcome perceived obstacles; it can teach us to feel; it can teach us to appreciate the sensuality of life using all of our available senses. It can teach us pain and it can teach us healing; birth and death; transformation and change. It is a miracle if you allow it to be.
Gratitude is healing to the physical body; thanking it every day for a job well done, flaws and all. Sending it love and light will do wonders; particularly if it is used to receiving only abuse and destructive habits. Part of our journey of raising our consciousness is complete acceptance of our physical form. It is seeing the perfection in the mirror of imperfection. It is understanding the fleeting nature of the physical, the beauty and perfection of the cycles.
Take care of your amazing physical body. It is your chosen temple for this incarnation. Nurture it well with food from the earth. Allow it to rest. Quench it with pure water. Let it breathe fresh air. Reconnect it to Mother Gaia, by planting your bare feet on the ground, hugging a tree, smelling the flowers and appreciating the stunning bounty of nature. In return, it will allow you to ascend in consciousness, taking in more Light, becoming Love.
