Staying in my body

I, personally, have a tendency to walk into walls and have a hard time remembering that I'm IN a body! It takes a lot of focus for me to remember where my physical boundaries exist. I wonder if this is ever a problem for very athletic, "physical" people!I This problem does lessen for me, however, when I remember to take my daily walks. I make an effort to become mindful of where my feet are on the sidewalk. It grounds me better the whole rest of the day...

With all the reminders "out there" of what is (presumeably) lacking in terms of my body's shape and size, I've made it a habit to thank it, personally, every time I'm drying off from taking a shower. I pretend that it's another entity altogether that I'm speaking to. I know it appreciates this!

A very effective technique for stilling the noise in the mind is to find a quiet place and focus on the breath. Just follow the passage of the breath as it comes in, fills the lungs and gently returns outside as you exhale.

Do not try to still your mind. The mind is like a monster that feeds off your energy. The more you fight it, the stronger it grows. I cannot express how tricky the mind is, but I promise you, if you ignore it, it will go away.

The mind is a wonderful tool when used properly, will be your greatest friend. Unfortunately if given the energy it can and will use you. Left unchecked it can become your greatest enemy.

You know, Jerry, I believe that this is exactly how Esther Hicks started bringing through "Abraham." She sat quietly, seated near her husband, Jerry, and simply observed her breathing. After about 9 mos (if I'm recalling correctly), she started merging with a higher frequency/expanded consciousness that calls itself, "Abraham."

Personally, i have a hard time staying my body, and when I do, i don't like it very well...
