Gratitude Project – for mantras


Ok, well this is too long for the definition of a mantra I think. How about — “a thing with words that allows my mind to go around to the left of an issue, thereby opening healthy thinking that has been blocked.” Too long for a title.

My Body is a Temple of Wisdom

My body knows emotions. I know that emotions can catch in my body and I know how to find those sticky spots and release them.

My body knows spirit. I know how to ground myself to the earth, and allow gravity to do its work without resistance, so my spirit may fly yet remain tethered to embodied me.

My body knows homeostasis. I know that symptoms of illness, disorder, or lack of balance is my body bringing to my attention that which needs tending.

I will remember that my body is a temple of Wisdom, and I will listen with openness and do what is required to honour the temple that it is.


While I’m pretty excellent at the first two, the third one has been a blindspot for me. So, my new thing is repeating these words to myself until the third one is learned in practice.
