For me the holiest place in the world is in my bed under my blanket. I love the time early in the morning, when it is still outside and I have the space for myself to feel me in my body. When I choose that time for me, there is a longing inside to connect deeper within myself.
I want to describe, what I experience:
I start with honestly nominating what is there at that moment. The only truth is me being with my body, and my body reflecting back to me how it really feels.
Often I recognise that I have a lot of thoughts and am very busy in my head. I am quite warm, but I notice I am still feeling a coldness and constriction, mostly in the upper part of my body, even when I have two blankets over it.
More issues are coming to my mind, going in circles and going nowhere. This doesn`t feel good in my body, I feel small, cold, contracted and empty. But, coming from the experience where my body has felt something different – something which was greater, warmer, lighter – I start to connect deeper and reflect that the cold contracted feeling is not the true me, I know I am much more than that.
I drop immediately into my body, connecting to an energy flowing within – just waiting for me to go with it. I sense an energetic opening, cascading and starting from the upper body down to the feet and beyond – becoming warmer, bigger, lighter. It`s like a stretching from the inside, a wonderful process of unraveling, breaking through old pathways.
I am really impressed with the power of that energy working through me and I become aware of parts of my body that I haven`t noticed before – I am opening and relaxing, I get a smile on my face.
In this state I feel free and joyful, playful as a child, there is no need for any coffee or drink, or even an ounce of a thought of it, that could possibly distract me from that lovely feeling inside of me.
There is no room for bigger or better than others, no emotions of anger, jealousy, sadness, there is just love with me and others, and even all those I haven`t yet met.
Now I am ready for the day…
I feel very supported and I want to say thank you to Serge Benhayon, his family, Universal Medicine and the esoteric students, because they present a loving, true and deeper understanding of energy that helps me to better understand what I have always known and felt before.

Sometimes I imagine a community and a society where we support each other simply to be and to feel all there is to feel. And to foster that, it begins with ourselves and in our own families and from there can grow our to the community as others are inspired likewise.
Feeling the body, feeling our breath, feeling our rib cage rise and fall as we breathe – these are the simple ways for us to bring ourselves out of the head and into the body and much more present and aware of everything around us. Such a simple tool we can take anywhere with us, anywhere that our body is taken too.
The warmth we hold deep inside is one of the most precious things we all have. It is simply there waiting for us to connect to it at any moment in time.
Beautiful to just be love, and feel that for self, and others, ‘There is no room for bigger or better than others, no emotions of anger, jealousy, sadness, there is just love with me and others, and even all those I haven`t yet met
“In this state I feel free and joyful, playful as a child, there is no need for any coffee or drink”. Your line highlights how little relationship we have with ourselves and our bodies as adults, we often wake and launch into the day beginning with coffee, but not beginning with ourselves.
Great point Melinda, starting with ourselves, is the only true starting point and that is our opportunity to bring true quality to our day.
Maybe this needs to be introduced to schools and the workplace, it feels so gorgeous, what a start to the day.
This feels like a beautiful morning routine that deeply honours and connects you with yourself, ‘I drop immediately into my body, connecting to an energy flowing within – just waiting for me to go with it. I sense an energetic opening, cascading and starting from the upper body down to the feet and beyond – becoming warmer, bigger, lighter. It`s like a stretching from the inside, a wonderful process of unraveling, breaking through old pathways.’
Great to read this again Claudia, it’s a snapshot of how life can be when we recognise the difference between sourcing who we are from our spirit – contracted, racy, restricted, heavy etc; or sourcing who we are from our soul – love, warmth, and openness.
Our preparation for the day can start with how we put our-selves to bed and the ritual and rhythm that it is done in.
Yes Greg, it’s one continuous cycle where every moment matters.
So True Melinda, as we deepen and allow the loving focus to become a part of our rhythm, then the magical moments we are exposed to become our new normal within our ‘cycle’.
“The only truth is me being with my body, and my body reflecting back to me how it really feels” – I really love this beautiful simplicity. Interesting how we try to be creative in the way we try adding to and decorating this simplicity with something that is not of the same source.
I understand what you are saying that there is a body of people now that I can be with and not feel out of place because we are all learning how to reconnect back to what we know is true against the falsity of life.
It is true when we connect to ourselves and enjoy the moment, the warmth, the joy the playfulness, there is nothing to hold us back and we are ready for what ever the day will bring.
The interplay between the quality of energy and how my body feels is a truth that can’t be denied. When I’m racy and thinking, not in the moment, reactive, tense etc, it’s all reflected in the body as constriction, suppression, tightness, cold, pain etc. When I’m connected to my inner heart, to the essence of me and my soul it’s very freeing, the body settles and relaxes, it feels open and there is a beautiful flow and movement of energy within.
Yes and it sets the day up in a completely different way. It isn’t about wasting time, but being present in every moment, ready to respond to what is called for in any given moment.
I felt this today, I could feel the stillness of the morning and the opportunity to start the day without a raciness in my body. The opportunity is always just waiting for us to choose it.
It is such an exquisite feeling – a moment when time ceases to exist or at least ceases to govern us, and a moment when space expands to allow for so much to be felt, seen, understood. An eternal expansion of the being that only the mind seeks to cap.
Love gives a greater awareness of reality, of truth and who we are. Being open to love is therefore the best thing you can do.
Connecting deeply to oneself in the early morning is as wonderful as to be open and willing to play around with ways of connecting that brings us to feel even more beauty.
This time you have described is one of greater resurrection — one that is connecting to a deeper part within oneself. A richdom we have instore when we connect to our inner-heart. All we have to do is start with a gentle breath, one that I have learned through the Gentle Breath Meditation, and have been ever since.
What I have felt is that we are more so Gods, often knowing very deeply what our power is, yet using ways to deny this we often do — which creates a force that is not us. This is merely so the effect we are now experiencing in our world. Where force (not love) is being used instead of love (our power).
I too love the time early in the morning when everything is so quite, so still…. Much later in the day, or more precisely at the end of the day, I notice I have lost the beautiful stillness I had felt first thing in the morning. Have been working on this, and checking in with myself more during the day, so that there is not such a big gap or difference from the early morning.
Time in the morning for ourselves when we can appreciate our preciousness and choose to move in a way that honours that, that allows us to feel our delicacy – a lovely way to start each day.
Yes, this feels like a lovely way to start the day.
Making time to connect with me… this title says it all. There is nothing more important than connecting with our true wealth within which is our natural divine essence.
“Making the time to connect with ourselves is the best medicine we can offer to our body and to our sense of wellbeing” I agree Elizabeth, the best medicine is the attention and care we give ourselves.
This precious morning connection with ourselves, is to be treasured. It is our foundation for the day.
Gorgeous to read this today Claudia, and could feel how much you dropped into your body and how much you were fed back. But the message for me today, is to spend more time connecting with myself when I have just awoken as everything feels so still around me first thing in the morning.
‘The only truth is me being with my body, and my body reflecting back to me how it really feels.’ And that’s just it, to feel our bodies and allow ourselves to honour that feeling without becoming attached to or identified by it. It offers a different way for us to live and be, and shows us that we do not have to be a prisoner of our mind.
To truly let it come through what you deserve (love) is the greatest expression of all. That is what I love about the teachings and livingness by Serge and Natalie Benhayon. I love them. Even in times of resistance within myself too!
I notice how either warm or coolish I feel depending on how much I want to actually connect with my body or not.
