Body Wisdom

“Well, you know, don’t argue with the body, Jerry. That’s an argument you can’t win.”

— Kramer, “Seinfeld”

The Wizard’s Reflection

The Body Knows How To Say No

The body is an immaculate self-nourishing and self-correcting matrix of intelligence. It contains each element’s wisdom and constantly demonstrates how they mix and match with one another, bringing a complex uniqueness blended with simple truths to life. As an interwoven layering of fields of energy and sensitivity, the body is always listening, learning, and always revealing what it understands.

When something is off in the body, it will tell us if we can listen to its subtle cues. Hearing those cues, we get the chance to remedy the tendencies toward disease and injury long before they would manifest. If we disregard those cues, the body will intensify its alarm until we hear it. When the body says no, it will keep raising the volume until it gets our attention.
