Why I Don’t Feel My Body Is My Own

Why I Don’t Feel My Body Is My Own

I’ve always felt the body I was born into isn’t my own.

I don’t mean I feel I was born into a body of the wrong gender, or that I dislike the appearance of my physical body and feel it’s the ‘wrong’ body.

I mean, I’ve always felt trapped and restricted in my physical body because it’s small and condensed compared to the vastness of my consciousness.

When I was a child I remember feeling scared that my attention was focused within my body. It was absurd and frighteningly limited to be looking at the world through my small child eyes.

I often thought, “How did I get in here?” and “Why am I in this body?” And I remember telling my mum that “I don’t feel like my body is my own, like it isn’t a part of me,” and she would just look at me perplexed, not knowing what to say.

I was also afraid of the pain I could feel in this child-body. The world was a big place and my little body often got bruised, pained, pushed and pulled. I didn’t understand why I was in this body, and why this body hurt at times.

Of course, like all children I loved to skip and dance and run, but when I asked mum if we could fly, and she told me we couldn’t, I thought my physical body was an odd thing indeed because I knew I could fly. I could fly in my spirit-form!

As I grew older and started working as a psychic and medical intuitive, I came to realise that, for whatever reason, I was born still very ‘plugged into’ the spirit world and the other side. I was used to living in spirit-form and having the experience of a vast and expansive consciousness, so finding myself in a small body was a shock!

Some people feel they were born into the wrong gender body, and other’s feel there are things about their bodies that just aren’t right. For me it’s ‘odd’ to have a body, and my consciousness focused in it.

Even though I’m come to accept this as a part of this ‘earthly journey,’ there are days when I still find it weird that I’m ‘housed’ in a body.

I’ve also found ways of alleviating the restrictions of my physicality. Meditation, chakra work and mindfulness practices have greatly helped me achieve the feelings of expansion and vastness, and that is one of the reasons why I mediate for at least one hour every morning.

But you know what? Even when I’m channeling white light or doing yoga or running. And my chakras are humming, I’m anchored in ‘the now’ and connected to my body, it still feels weird having one!

I still feel my physical body isn’t my own. But it isn’t really mine, is it?

It’s just my temporary form for this incarnation 🙂

in White Light + Love,

Belinda

Is this missing from your spiritual practice?

In a world filled with polarity, hatred, violence, division, and chaos, we can be the bearers and bringers of the light by practicing loving compassion towards ourselves and others. Practicing loving compassion isn’t a difficult thing to do. It simply means trying to see the light in others—or the shadow: the hurt, pain, and suffering.

Having spiritual discernment in the New Age

It’s important not to confuse metaphysical skill with spirituality. Not all people that display strong psychic, healing, or magical abilities have your best interests at heart.

Belinda Davidson, Modern Mystic

Dear Friend, You are deeply loved, more deeply than you know. The entire fabric of the Universe is made up of love, and you are a tiny thread in that fabric of the Universe. You are love. Breathe in deep, and feel the fullness of love all around you.

Yesterday I gave an impromptu Facebook Live.It was in response to something I posted a few days ago, where I talked about living with a neurological condition, and the trauma of being in and out of emergency last year with massive migraines, seizures, and vertigo attacks.


How to stay strong in your energy (and not get dragged down by others)

I’m sure you’ve had the experience. You’re talking to someone and suddenly you feel strange. It doesn’t happen right away—somewhere about 15 - 20 minutes into the conversation. An odd spacey feeling creeps over you. The person keeps talking. You’re listening, nodding, agreeing. All the while, the odd feeling grows. You’re feeling more and more drained. Flat, too.


Belinda Davidson, You Spoke. I Listened. And This is What I Created for You

Sometime last year, I asked people subscribed to my newsletter how I can better serve them. I asked them to fill out a questionnaire, telling me about their stresses, struggles, challenges, as well as deepest wishes and desires. 1,202 people filled out the questionnaire. I read each and every one of the responses, multiple times. Being helpful and of service to you is important to me.


Belinda Davidson, Be Blessed. Not Stressed

It doesn’t matter how much you “get done” or achieve. If it isn’t coming from high vibration and a mindful state, you aren’t attributing anything of true substance to the world.
