THE SPIRITUAL WISOM OF OUR CELLS
It would appear that our cells have been out thinking us for millions of years. Let me see if I can expound on what that means. As human beings we view ourselves as the highest in intelligence of all the living creations. We have a neocortex, and granted, it is quite exquisite in function, but I believe there is an even more exquisitely functioning intelligence than we had ever supposed living out its daily path in complete alignment with the divine. Dr. Deepak Chopra says, “No matter where I look, I sense what cosmic wisdom is trying to accomplish. It is much the same as what I myself want to accomplish—to grow, expand, and create—the main difference being that my body is cooperating with the universe better than I manage to.” I believe that we are spiritual beings living out a mortal—or physical—experience. Because of our physicality, we often forget this important truth that can act as an anchor for us.
No need to raise your hand if you have ever, or are currently, experiencing any of the following human foibles, but rather take note of those with which you are familiar. Then we will apply our cell’s wisdom to these very issues. I will take information from Dr. Deepak Chopra, M.D. about the functioning of cells.
- Have you ever struggled with, and/or experienced, selfishness in any of its forms?
- Have you ever strongly desired to, or actually withdrawn yourself from others, refusing to participate in meaningful communication?
- Have you ever found yourself caught up in rigid habits and stuck in a proverbial rut for some time?
- Have you ever suffered from the “island syndrome” and decided that you would be better off to go it alone?
- Do you have an almost impossible time locating and/or letting go of old behaviors?
- Do people tell you—and you secretly know it’s true—that you are obsessively active and/or aggressive? Or do you have the opposite problem and have no motivation to move or engage in anything?
- Do you battle with the compulsion to overindulge—in food, sleep, talking, etc.?
- Do you feel separate from everyone else because you know that you are too different and an outcast?
- Have you noticed yourself hoarding and being greedy, even though you really want to be a giving person?
- Do you feel isolated from the generation before you and the generation following you because they just don’t understand?
I don’t know of a single person who does not encounter multiple manifestations of at least one—usually several—of these “problems” in the act of daily living. I also don’t believe this illustrates that we as humans are spiritually weak or inadequate. I think that living in this physical dimension produces these kinds of experiences. I do, however, believe that we can resolve these issues the hard way or the easy way. In my experience, the easy way is to hook up to the spiritual dimension to view and work with our “problems,” and perhaps find that they are not really problems after all, but growth opportunities. The conundrum is that while we lose sight of our spiritual solutions being in a physical body, our actual physical body itself is very intimately in alignment with, and is continually executing, the spiritual—or higher—law while living its mortal existence. Let’s take a look.
o A cell understands its higher purpose. All of our cells agree to work for the welfare of the whole. A cell’s own welfare comes second. It will choose to die to protect the body, as illustrated by the thousands of skin cells that die every hour of every day, and immune cells that sacrifice to kill invading microbes. Selfishness is not an option.
o Cells keep in contact with every other cell in our bodies. It has long been know that there are messenger cells that peruse the entire body under direction of the main nervous system. It has now been discovered that these same messenger cells can act independently of the central nervous system according to a higher intelligence for the protection of the body—a whole other discussion for another time. Withdrawing or refusing to communicate is not an option.
o Cells adapt from moment to moment. They must remain flexible so they can respond immediately to any situation. Getting caught up in rigid habits is not an option.
o Cells recognize all other cells as equally important to the whole. They are all interdependent with every other function in the body organism. Going it alone is not an option.
o Cells operate from a unique set of functions, but can simultaneously combine in creative ways—allowing us to digest foods we have never eaten before, think a thought never thought before, and sing a song never sung before. Clinging to old behavior is not an option.
o Cells obey the universal cycle of activity and rest, demonstrated for us in the obvious cycle of sleep. Medicine cannot explain why we sleep, but we know that without it we cannot function. Being aggressively active is not an option.
o Cells function with the least amount of expenditure possible. They usually store only three seconds of food and oxygen inside of them. They completely trust that they will be provided for. Excessive consumption is not an option.
o Cells know that they are fundamentally the same, even though they are differentiated to specific jobs. A muscle cell can be changed in a laboratory to a heart cell just by taking it back to its common source. Healthy cells remain tied to their source no matter how many times they divide. Being an outcast is not an option.
o Cells maintain the integrity of the whole organism of cells by engaging in their primary activity of giving. The other half of the equation is receiving. It is automatic. Hoarding is not an option.
o Cells reproduce and pass all their knowledge, talents, and experience on to the next generation. They withhold nothing. They die physically, but defeat death spiritually. The generation gap is not an option.
None of these functions are spiritual aspirations; they are facts of daily existence in our cells. That is why our bodies are a great portal to the higher spiritual dimensions of life; because although completely invisible, the body’s wisdom is undeniably real, and is living in complete harmony with solution-filled spirit. As a Kinesiologist, I can access this portal of the body’s wisdom and gather information from the hidden dimensions of our lives. Since the solutions are readily available in this dimension, we can unblock that which is causing disharmony and disease in the body. And because the spiritual aspect is infinitely dimensional, the solutions will address and resolve our mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic selves as well. That’s what I call a “soul solution.” Call me at 801.599.2253 and discover your body’s inner wisdom.
