How do you make the realization that you are not your body with out something dramatic happening or slowing seeing it break down?

This would be a very helpful realization I believe, that would help you discover who you really are and help deal with physical ailments and conditions. It seems to happen often for people who are forced to realize this and for those who live a healthy life and have to watch there bodies deteriorate it seems to be a painful realization.

  • Dec 1 2012: Hello Shane,
    You posed an excellent question and without getting philosophical or spiritual, Janine Shepherd experience is proof of one of the statement’s by Napolean Hill “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, It can achieve.” Evidently speaking, Janine’s body followed her mind and therefore achieved what she desired.

    What helps me realize that I am not body is, looking at the results I have in all aspects of my life and if I don’t like the results. I question my way of thinking and what it is that my mind is consciously and unconsciously conceiving.

    Sending you positing thoughts,
    C Cabrera
