Did you know you have a best friend, a collaborator that lives within you that willingly and unconditionally directs and manages your body towards health? The best thing is, you don’t have to do a thing!
Have you ever had those moments when you are on your way home from work or from an event and your mind is not on the task of driving? You arrive home and think to yourself, how did I manage to get home? My mind was travelling everywhere else except on the directions to get home. But you did get home, and safely. Who did this for you? It wasn’t your mind! Your mind was worrying about things and your to-do list.
I will fill you in on a secret. It was your best friend, your collaborator, guiding you and directing you without you even having to think too much about it.
The collaborator directs mechanisms in the body to keep you well and safe, and it has a way of being informed so it can do its work.
That way is via the senses, sight, sound, touch, hearing, taste. All of these senses work together in harmony to inform your collaborator so it can do its job.
Your collaborator knows:
…when it sees a red light, that it must slow down….when it feels a bump, it must do something differently to avert danger.
…when it hears a hissing sound or strange clunking sound, it will let you know something is wrong.
Your body works in much the same way. It has an amazing intelligence that many of us are never even aware of. Life can become a remarkable journey of health and wellbeing by becoming aware and befriending the collaborator.
3 Examples of the Collaborator in Action
- The immune system: my son is working through his last year of high school and has recently developed red and itchy blisters on some of his toes. This is the collaborator demonstrating the immune system is under stress. A solution is to find ways to relax the body-mind, and encourage him to take vitamin C and other immune boosting supplements.
- Headaches: a girlfriend was complaining of headaches and heaviness around the base of her head. This was the collaborator’s innate intelligence signalling a lack of blood flow and tension – that something was off track. She was under quite a bit of stress due to a contract deadline. Once we became aware of this innate intelligence, we could consciously collaborate with it and start fixing the issue.
- Sleep issues: do you have trouble sleeping at night? It’s very common for most people. Whenever the body goes into shock, you get a flight or fight response. This can happen during an actual accident but also when you’re observing something disastrous on TV, or something that makes you feel ill at ease or even angry. The innate will recognise that something is not quite right, leading to tossing and turning at night.
My quest is to help people get to know the innate, or collaborator, and how it communicates to help us be well. This is a concept that is alien to people because we have been taught to look outside of ourselves for answers to be well.
4 Simple Ways to Collaborate with Your Innate
- Give your innate a name. My innate’s name is Grace.
- Start communicating with your innate. Say ‘hello’ and acknowledge its presence.
- When you wake up in the morning. Give your innate a cuddle by wrapping your arms around yourself and saying ‘morning, nice to have you with me’.
- Open to the possibility that the innate is with you at all times and will guide you in your ways.
