Making the Time to Connect to Me

by Claudia Swadek, Germany

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.

  1. 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.

      1. 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’.

  2. “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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Making space every day to deepen our connection to our body opens up our awareness of the true qualities we hold within our essence and the more we commit to moving and expressing ourselves from this connection allows our true quality of being to naturally expand outwards.

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Starting the day in confirming and appreciating our connection to our body and how we are feeling inside supports us to deepen our relationship with ourselves and our body, creating the space to deepen our connection with our body’s natural rhythm and the simple joy and flow of being with ourselves.

    1. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. ‘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.

  16. 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!

  17. Making the time to connect with ourselves is the best medicine we can offer to our body and to our sense of wellbeing. What you share here Claudia feels really lovely and what a super supportive way to begin your day.

    1. “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.

  18. I love early mornings, they are a time to be with me and enjoy the connection with my body and how it feels. I love how you describe the way you feel the cold and contraction mostly in your upper part of the body and then as you connect, you feel the warmth starting to flow through your body. Starting the day like this is so much more joyful than waking thinking about all the things that need to be done during the day, this already feels exhausting and overwhelming and pushes the body into overdrive.

    1. I agree Alison, beginning the day with what we will enjoy the most, our beautiful connection with our essence and being settled in our bodies.

  19. So much of life is currently about getting things done and how much we can achieve, there is not much focus on or value put to our relationship to ourselves. I have found for me taking care of my relationship to me and my connection to myself as the foundation for life has completely changed the way I am in the world. Although I can still get caught up in the rush and panic of how much there is to do in a day, I am now more able to stop these behaviours and reconnect back to the lovely warmth within that is my essence, and also reconnect to and move with my whole body. As you mentioned Claudia getting stuck in the mind is not a pleasant experience, and it cuts us off from the warmth and loveliness of our connection to our soul and body.

  20. A beautiful way to start the day and “It’s like a stretching from the inside” is a glorious description of re-connecting to oneself.

  21. This is a beautiful testimony of the self-empowerment that is offered for us to embrace through the presentations of Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon. This highlights precisely how it is possible to live with utter joy through our every day, consistently, through our connection to who we are within, to our Soul.

  22. What a gorgeous account of the power we all have to connect deeply with our inner essence (love) no matter what heady state we may be in at the time. This was really inspiring for me to read and I felt I was right there with Claudia feeling that beautiful stillness.

  23. It is alchemy taking place when we connect to our body by feeling every detail. The stillness that emerges from this opens up your body even more and is the perfect start for a day.

  24. “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.” What a lovely way to start the day, waking with you and not allowing the thoughts to come in and distract you or take you away from being with you. I know quite often I can wake thinking of the day ahead and it doesn’t take long before I am lost in the day rather than enjoying the moment that I am in.
