It's no secret that exercise has tremendous benefits for our physical, emotional, and mental health. But did you know this is also true for our spiritual health? Exercise helps "loosen" your spiritual body so you can become more open and receptive. Often, intuitive information will become conscious when the physical body moves, especially if one is relaxed.
Since we are both equally human and spiritual beings, we need to be fully present in each part to receive the maximum benefit of being alive. Too much in our spiritual selves or physical selves causes an imbalance and has drawbacks, such as overthinking or apathy. To hear higher guidance from our spiritual self, paradoxically, we need to be deeply grounded in our human bodies.
One of the easiest and quickest ways to become grounded and fully present in the physical body is to move it intentionally. Exercise, or any repetitive and steady movement, will ground your spirit into your body and to the earth. Grounding is vital to hearing any intuitive information, including that which comes from your higher self.
To learn more about grounding.
Keep in mind that exercise doesn't need to mean a 30-minute cardio workout daily at a gym. It can be gardening, going for a walk, or anything that gets your body moving.
Exercising outdoors is especially useful in grounding your spirit and body to the physical realm. Since you are intimately connected to the natural environment, exercising outside in beautiful areas will naturally relax your body's nervous system.
A relaxed nervous system is key for hearing intuitive information. If the nervous system is highly active, your internal environment will be very noisy. Information coming from the higher self is quiet, so having a rested nervous system will foster a space within you to hear its intuitive guidance.
If you don't live in a place with a lot of natural outdoor beauty, put on some relaxing music in headphones and go for a walk. Do what you can to create a peaceful inner environment as you move around and, as always, set your intention high, that you only want intuitive information coming from your higher self.
If moving around is something you can't do, try taking a long bath or sit next to a body of water. Make the environment pleasant by lighting a candle or fresh flowers. Move what you can, like your hands in the water intentionally, and listen. Water is a powerful current for intuitive information. You may be surprised how much intuitive guidance will come through in these relaxing settings.
