Reverb - Body Integration

Reverb prompt:
Body Integration - This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body? Did you have a moment where there wasn’t mind and body, but simply a cohesive YOU, alive and present?   I was almost thinking this prompt does not relate to me. Being a victim of a condition causing chronic pain, there tends to be no cohesive to mind and body. My body and mind fight constantly as I deal with pain. Then it occurred to me. The Shower!!! I love taking showers. Sometimes when I get in the shower and crank it on HOT, with eyes closed, listening to the sound of the water cascading, feeling the heat penetrating my neck and shoulders, opening up my crown chakra, my body relaxes, the pain subsides, my mind sharpens. The words and thoughts flow. I feel whole. I feel relaxed. I feel free of worry, trouble and pain.

Lynn, I didn't know you also suffer from chronic pain. When I posted my reply to this reverb, my first thought was of never having the control to just flow, my body talks to my mind every minute of every day. But I do find when I really talk with God, my mind isn't overridden with the pain, it sort of goes on hold. You hit it when you said shower, water can be such good therapy too.

I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for you with the pain. I can relate to the shower and I find the same thing with a hot bath, BLISS!

I am sending you healing energy.
