Do you treat your body parts like employees? Do you expect them to perform their “functions” and berate them when they don’t? Treating them like employees who are expected to do their “jobs” and getting angry at them (or about them) when they don’t?
I Used to Be an Angry Boss Too!
Weird question? But stop for a moment and think about the messages you send to the different parts of your body.
For example: How often do you find yourself chastising your stomach when you look in the mirror? Do you ever find yourself nagging your leg muscles when you go for a walk or jog because they start hurting? Ever berate your brain for your lack of will power after you surrender to a late-night snacking urge?
Honestly reflecting on these messages is important. Because the “you” who communicates with your body parts is, of course, the non-physical you. And sending messages to your different body parts (your brain, your muscles, your digestive system, your stomach, your abdominal area, etc.) that are anything but nurturing, uplifting, loving, and grateful is a huge mistake!
And an enormous missed opportunity too!
Why Your “Employees” Aren’t Listening to You When You Yell At Them
Why? Because quantum physics has taught us that holism replaces the machine paradigm. We now know that your body’s different components are not part of a larger machine (the larger “you”). This includes your physical brain, by the way; your brain is not “who you are”, it is merely a physical tool of the non-physical “you”. Just like your heart, lungs, muscles, etc.
We now know that your body’s different parts are, literally, a collection of free-agents who are voluntarily cooperating to make “you” function. In fact, science cannot yet explain why they are volunteering like this. As bizarre as this sounds, it is actually true.
There is ample research which shows us, definitively, that all of your body’s parts and systems are operating independently and many of them may even have their own consciousness – separate from the larger consciousness of “you” (your non-physical energy).
Put Yourself in Your Body Parts’ Place and Employ the Golden Rule
So recall a time when you volunteered to help someone or some organization. How would you have felt if the volunteer coordinator, the person in charge of your efforts, never thanked or praised you for your efforts? Worse still, what if that person actively berated or belittled you for your efforts – chastising you and repeatedly telling you that you weren’t doing well enough!
Would you ever return to help that person or that organization? Of course not! You’d find something else to do with your valuable time. Something else where your efforts and good intentions were actually appreciated.
Just imagine, then, how your body’s different parts must feel when you treat them like that.
But let’s say, hypothetically, that you were volunteering for someone and weren’t doing a good job or what was expected of you. What would be the best way for the person in charge to handle this? Yell at you? Treat you with disrespect? Chastise you as if your poor performance was being done on purpose?
Of course not!

The best way for the person in charge to address your less than expected performance would be addressing your, first and foremost, with respect. You are volunteering yourself after all! Then that person should approach you in a kind manner and gently educate you regarding what she wants you to do – treating you like someone who is good and wants to be more effective.
So take my recommendation. Start treating your body’s systems like you’d want to be treated in a volunteering situation. What do you have to lose? Your body’s parts are volunteering to help the larger “you”, after all (and this is true whether you know it or not – and even whether you believe it or not). And, additionally, you’re communicating with your body’s parts every day anyway? Why wouldn’t you try doing it in a loving, nurturing, encouraging and grateful way?
