Exercise for Spiritual Channels

I never worked out. I never, ever went to a gym.
When a coach suggested working out would help my channeling practice, I had a "No way" reaction.
I felt like the last thing I needed to do was expend more energy and more time...especially on something that felt so selfish.
For the past three months, I've been working out consistently. It's part of my "chop wood, carry water" spiritual practice.
I've found ways to make it work for me.
When I go to the gym, I choose my locker number based on numerology.
I recite mantras while lifting weights.
I wear clothes that match my energetic signature.
I bless the water of the swimming pool as I swim.
I listen to my inner guidance and Faerie Queen guides to tell me how many more laps to swim or repetitions to do.
I've gotten stronger.
My channeling has gotten better.
I have a lot more energy.
Lifting my son is a breeze.
And in this current political landscape, it is nice to have something I do for me. Not for my clients, not for my family, but simply because it feels good and helps me feel healthy and strong. Moving me body helps move the energy through me. And as I wrote a few days ago, our bodies are intensely attuned to the political climate.
If you told me last year that this year I would be working out consistently, I would have laughed at you. Being a mom can be so, so draining.
But I'm glad I've gotten into this practice.
I'm glad to have something I do just for me.
I'm glad my higher self has a happy, healthy body to inhabit even more and even more.
Our human bodies are stargates for consciousness, and it is wise to love them and nourish them well.
Plus, the mermaids at the local pool are fun to hang with πŸ˜‰ 
It feels kind of vulnerable to share this part of my life with you, as exercising has really been an edge for me. Until a few months ago, I associated exercise with people who wanted to lose weight or somehow despised their bodies, and I wanted to love my body just as she was. But if you've been wondering if exercise might help your spiritual journey, this is me encouraging you to explore what works for you. I love you so and bless your journey of embodiment.
