A Body Of Information
you are paying attention, when things are in order you know it. When
they are not, you know it too. When the car engine sounds rough or the
bike gears are clanking, or the washing machine is shaking its way
across the floor, you know something is not as it should be. When your
body gives you pain or fluids are running from places they should not
be, you know there is a problem.
we are healthy, we don’t cough or sneeze too much and we feel
alright. That’s the way it is supposed to be. The system is
working. The body is doing what bodies are meant to do. We have
an idea of what health should be, like we have an idea that machines
should run smoothly without erratic vibrations.
DNA is a code that life uses to form our bodies, but before our
personal DNA formed there was an idea, a thought form, an archetype
that suggested how a human body should be. We know a perfect body when
we see it. People travel to Florence to see Michelangelo’s
statue of David, because it approximates perfection in the human form.
It is a stone reference for perfection, and to see that is thrilling.
We resonate with the thought that Michelangelo was able to manifest in
is the natural way of things. When we are healthy, we approximate it.
When we are ill, our system has deviated from the ideal.
a living system, our body is an intelligent informational system. If we
are alive, it is mostly working as planned. When there is a problem, we
can respond emotionally, perhaps in fear or anger, or we can address
the problem as an information problem that can be corrected.
your computer gets a virus, you run a virus scanning program to correct
it. You don’t know how it works, but you run it anyway. We might
take the same approach with our bodies. And like a virus scan, we might
want to run the scan before there is a problem.
your body as the representation of an idea. As a building or a machine
has a blueprint, your body has an archetypal plan. Every organ, every
cell, every molecule and every atom has a function or potential
in your mind, a holographic light image of your body as it is supposed
to be. This light body is a body of information. It is the
idea—the consciousness, that informs the body, just as before
there is a statue, painting, poem or program there is an idea
that directs the sculptor, painter, writer or programmer. See
this ideal image of your body with all parts working, all systems
this idea, this ideal, your DNA makes you piece by piece. DNA is a
code. It is information in action or in potential. See yourself as
enlivened information and realize that information can be altered by
conscious action. Acknowledge the perfection of the design and seek to
align your mind with the ideal.
your visualization of your body with the intention of correcting any
errors. Affirm the healthy functioning of the system and intend
that your physical body align with the perfect idea of your body.
any malicious mental programming that undermines your good health.
Release any emotional distortions that interfere with the beautiful,
harmonious, healthy operation of your physical being. Allow any family
patterns or karmic disturbances to dissolve in the light of the
excellent design that is your potential self.
the smooth operation of your body/mind system by affirming your
intention to take care of your body and mind by intelligently managing
