YOUR BODY SPEAK
a dialogue with your organs as an art of healing
the wisdom of your body
no longer means sitting in the corner in a yoga seat and letting the
world be meaningless. That was meditation in the old days. Now
meditation takes place "in the market place". We perceive, feel, have
compassion and yet stay with ourselves all the time without being
absorbed by external circumstances. This is particularly important when
it comes to matters in our bodies and our health.
Here an excerpt from the book attached to the Body Healing Cards
When it comes to health and illness,
we are guided by the spiritual parts of ourselves, so it is useful to
tune in to these levels of our being. To do this, we can do a brief
meditation, inwardly say a prayer, or connect with our inner self, our
soul, with a few deep breaths. When we do this, we achieve what Sigmund

This little exercise is a meditation we can perform everywhere: in the
metro, in queuing up for a cinema ticket or at the supermarket cashier,
in a conference to regain concentration, in visiting friends in the
hospital, but also to heighten the awareness for your lover, just
before we have to give our child a reprimand or when we have to face a
This way, meditation is not something “out of the world”,
but something that helps us to cope better with the world. This also
applies to our health and to have a better access to our organs, even
more when we go with the Body Healing Cards to have a glimpse behind
the obvious of our symptoms and try to find the basic pattern for a
more resilient health.
