Self-Care For All Your Bodies Part 2
Self-Care for your Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Energy Bodies
On the last blog, I shared what self-care practices you can put in place (if you're not already) that will support your Physical body. If you haven't read it yet, feel free to pop over here to read it!
While I'm continuing to break down the layers of our body from a holistic perspective, with a brief explanation to what they represent for us, I'll follow it with some incredible, powerful techniques that will help you support each of these layers, in simple way.
I'd love for you to feel empowered enough to know that by the end of this blog series, you have one or two things that you can action or are actioning that you can acknowledge yourself that you’re already using for every layer of your being!
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Leila Hardy. I am your online holistic health and life coach. I love nothing more than combining the subconscious and energy to really empower you to want to be the happiest, highest, healthiest version of yourself. I do that using a variety of tools, the main ones being Rapid Transformational Therapy and Coaching, Hypnotherapy and energy clearing and healing which allow me to access and identify huge potential shifts for you to be able to have the health, wealth and the happiness and the life that you want, whatever that looks like for you.
You’ll be surprised how many of these techniques and self-care practices you are already taking part in and helping yourself with, so be prepared to feel proud of yourself!
We have four prominent layers within our body.
The physical one is probably the one that is most obvious because it’s our physical body. It is the physical layer so you can touch, you can feel.
The next step out is our mental layer of energy. This just comes a little further out of our body but also we know that when you associate our mental thoughts and energy, it connects to what we think, what our ideas are, what our thoughts are, and all those things that come into that mental area.
A little bit further out of that, and this sometimes can be a slightly bigger energy field as well, is the emotional. That’s the things we feel - the emotions, the feelings we have, all of those words and thoughts and feelings you would associate with emotions and emotional layers.
Finally, we have the spiritual body which tends to be the biggest because it expands out into everything - up, down, out, and reaches and touches earth, sky, and everything in between. We’re talking energy, finding our purpose, deep connection, tuning in to your intuition, experiencing energy blocks, and things like that.
On this blog today, I’m going to talk you through some of the most amazing healing tools that you can use or may already be using for your Mental energy body.
The Mental Energy Body:
As I said, the mental layer refers to and connects with our thoughts. What we are thinking, the beliefs that we may hold about ourselves, and really how we see the world through our filter, through our lens.
Our mental energy is generally reflected back to us by our outer world.
When we're looking at healing tools for the Mental Layer of our body - hypnotherapy, hypnosis, NLP, coaching of any sort (health, life coaching, anything that really helps you to address your thoughts, your belief patterns, your behavioral patterns), counselling, CBT, conscious and subconscious mind support (Hypnotherapy, Hypnosis, Affirmations, Afformations, EFT, Tapping); all of those things really start to ignite and rewire and reprogram the subconscious, therefore changing your thoughts and helping them to improve, to heal, to transform in some way.
Having looked at the physical layer on the last blog and seeing how that connects with the healing tools, maybe the mental one feels a little easier to understand now?
Hypnotherapy or hypnosis - if you’re in my Ultimate Health group, chances are you’re probably listening to a hypnosis of mine already!
NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming: If you’ve ever experienced NLP, it’s a super powerful way to rewire our thoughts and our thinking patterns.
Coaching - Health or Life coaching, this helps you address the mental layer of your energy because it’s such a powerful one for helping us to change our actions and our results, by changing our thoughts.
Subconscious mind support - We’re talking about the other things other than hypnotherapy and hypnosis. Affirmations, mantras, afformations, Quantum leaping, visualisations; all of those things that reinforce positive great beliefs and thought patterns in your mind.
Conscious mind support - that might be saying the affirmations and afformations out loud. Saying them out loud and really picking yourself up when you catch yourself in self-sabotage mode, bringing that awareness to it so you can consciously correct it to think and feel how you want it to be instead.
Let me know what of these you are already doing and which ones of these you want to action and get into your self-care toolkit as a result of this!
If you’ve got anything else you want to add to this, something you’ve realised that you do that supports your physical body, add it below int he comments.
It’s incredibly powerful to acknowledge what you are doing for yourself that maybe you haven’t acknowledged as self-care, because it is maybe a basic need or something you do every day without thinking about.
Just like I encourage you to bring awareness to the things you want to change, it is important that you bring awareness to and celebrate the things that are absolutely amazing as well because that’s going to be reinforcing them at a really positive level for you!
In the next blog, I'll be discussing the Emotional energy body-this is such a meaningful layer for us in how we express ourselves, how we connect with others and how confident we are int he world around us.
See you over there!
