The Body is the Gateway

The Body is the Gateway
Rick Belden
Author, Iron Man Family Outing By Rick Beldon

I've learned over the years that I can get helpful information from my body at any time. I simply have to give it time and space to speak to me. And I have to listen.
But how, in practical terms, is this done?

Two of the first and most fundamental questions to ask when seeking information from the body are:

• What am I feeling?

• Where am I feeling it?

Posing these two questions to yourself, and listening for the answers, provides a great starting point. But what then? How does one approach the resulting information and work with it? I'd like to share some thoughts and ideas from my own experience.

Everything is alive in its own way. Everything may be thought of as energy. Everyone and everything has its own life process. Respect the autonomy and the boundaries of these processes in all cases.

Let things speak for themselves, whether seeking information in the body, in waking reality, in dreams, whatever the context. Maintain an open, friendly attitude toward whoever or whatever presents itself to you.

Ask questions: Who or what are you? Why are you here? What is your story, or what would you like to tell me?

When presented with pain or discomfort in the body, ask the same questions. Be still, be patient, and listen for whatever comes. It may be a word, an image, an impression, a feeling, or something else. Your body may have a story to tell you. Allow the story to come. Note any changes in the body ... relaxation, movement of energy, change in breathing. Let the story unfold until it seems to be finished. Let imagination work to bring the information to full consciousness.

The body is a container, a vessel, a vehicle for the expression of energy. Sometimes energy gets stuck or trapped. This can result in physical pain, discomfort, structural problems, or illness. A story is also a container, a vessel, a vehicle for the expression of energy. Energy can be trapped in the body in the form of a story. Some stories that emerge from the body are literally true and verifiable in terms of one's real world experience. This type of story is often referred to as a body memory. But stories that emerge from the body need not be literally true and verifiable in terms of one's real world experience to have value.

Sometimes valid stories emerge from the body in other forms, such as fantasies, or as streams of images, words, or feelings with no clear narrative and no obvious connection to the conscious world. Some stories emerge from the body in the form of what is often called a "past life" memory. From the standpoint of using the information for insight and healing, it doesn't matter if a fantasy or a stream of images makes sense at first, or if a "past life" memory is literally and verifiably true. What matters is whether or not the energy the story contains and expresses feels real and authentic in the body and the psyche. The metaphorical significance of the information may be evident almost immediately, or it may reveal itself gradually over time.

When working with the body, it's very important to ask for information before trying to jump straight from "problem" to "solution" to try to make the pain or the problem go away. Explore, investigate, listen. The simple process of focusing patient, understanding attention on an area of discomfort will often affect a shift that is significant enough to transform or clear any underlying psychic issue, and clear or significantly reduce the associated pain or physical discomfort in the body as well.

Such a shift may also be accompanied by a surprising psychological insight that puts the original issue in a new, more understandable context and provides a sense of greater peace or completion in relation to that issue.

The body is the gateway to the knowledge of the soul. The physical experience of the body provides many rich opportunities for self-exploration and healing. Our stories are with us throughout our lives, wherever we go, waiting there in our bodies to be discovered, heard, acknowledged, understood, and finally, released.

24 Questions: Are You Awake?

24 Questions: Are You Awake?
by Gregg Prescott, M.S.

We've been taught to assume the truth about everything presented to us without questioning the origin of the initial facts. For example, in the United States, we were taught that the attack on Pearl Harbor brought the United States into WW2, yet were not taught how many United States companies profited from funding both sides of the war, nor we we taught how George W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, personally helped to fund both sides of WW2. Had we been taught this in school, would either George H. or George W. Bush have become president? I doubt it, but that's how propaganda has affected us as a global civilization.

With that in mind, what thoughts do you question? Here are a few of mine:

1. What are our true origins and where did we come from?

2. Explain how the differences in this planet’s races evolved. Some say mankind originated in the Middle East or in Africa, and then people migrated, causing the change in skin color. Perhaps that would explain skin color, but explain the facial differences of people from Asian decent and how this would be a biological change from evolution. Is it possible that we were ALL seeded here instead of Darwin’s theory of evolution?

3. If the bible dates our existence to approximately 4,000 BC, then how do people explain the pyramids on the Giza plateau, which date back to over 10,000 years ago?

4. Who built the underwater pyramids in the China Sea, which are estimated to be 12,000 years old?

5. Somehow, we went from homo habilis to homo erectus to homo sapien without any gradual changes in between lineages. How do you explain the lineage of mankind?

6. What are the true meanings behind these pictures?

7. How did cultures from other continents come up with the same 2012 end date without any means to communicate with one another?

8. Why did we go from a naturally harmonic calendar to the current and inharmonious Gregorian calendar?

9. Is it possible that those who “fear” God are giving their power to the church instead of keeping it for themselves?

10. Is it possible that the God mentioned in the Bible is a fallen angel?

11. Is it possible that the Roman Catholic Church supports the Luciferian Doctrine while the Protestant Church supports the Satanic Doctrine?

12. Why is god assumed to be a man? Why can’t god be a woman? Why can’t god be, “the source” without religious or gender connotations?

13. Why should anyone “fear god”? If this is an all-loving being, then why be scared of him (or her)?

14. If Jesus was so amazing, then why didn’t people write about him when he was alive? Even if the people were illiterate, they could still draw pictures. Even the cavemen documented UFO’s and aliens.

15. Why does the Roman Catholic Church have the most high-powered telescopes pointed toward the skies?

16. If Thoth and Quetzalcoatl are the same person, and Thoth is considered to be a Reptilian, is it possible the Mayans (and other civilizations with a 2012 end date) got their information from aliens?

17. Why do people assume the bible is the ultimate “truth”? Why don’t more people question the origins of the bible?

18. Why doesn’t the bible acknowledge UFO’s and extra-terrestrials? Did “God” create them as well? If so, then why do ET’s have advanced intelligence over human beings? If not, then explain ET’s.

19. There are 3 city states located in Washington, DC (which controls the world’s laws), London (banks) and the Vatican City (religion). Is it possible that the bible was written to get people to become subservient? Is it possible the bible was the original template for New World Order? Does anyone see the correlation between blind faith and being controlled by others?

20. The Roman Catholic Church removed the Books of Enoch from the bible, which stated all will be revealed in this present world. He also mentioned a wondrous civilization in the past that misused the keys of higher knowledge (presumably Atlantis). Why were these writings eliminated from the bible and why did the bible neglect to mention of previous civilizations?

21. Is it possible that the 2012 end date is a reference point to the end of a time matrix in which a particular agenda must be accomplished, e.g. either New World Order or ascension?

22. Why do we work 8+ hours each day to support the elite? Was this part of our true divine reason for incarnating here or is it to distract us from that reason?

23. Assuming there are advanced beings of life, would you imagine ET’s have “money” and work 8+ hours a day for the elite?

24. If there was no such thing as “money” what would YOU be doing with your life?

We live in a society that rewards those who follow the flock and ridicules those who think outside the box. This paradigm is changing as evidenced by the uncovered atrocities of 9/11 as more and more people awaken to seek the real truth behind who they are and who they represent.

If you are one of these people, I commend you. If you are still asleep, then perhaps it's time that you begin searching for some answers. The bottom line is to question everything, because most of what we have been taught is not the complete truth.
