Did you know... the goal of all human existence is to successfully merge our True Self (Spirit) with our Human Self. This is the fundamental principle of so many spiritual movements.
So, again, it is a good idea to appreciate that we are much more than a physical body, and that our energy field is like our Spirit or True Self. Our bodies are much more naturally in tune with our Spirit than our minds are. It is not that our minds are 'bad' but they have often been heavily conditioned (and hence limited.) Our bodies are much more instinctual.
Meditation practices can help us go 'beyond our minds' to experience other levels of reality.
When we are healing at deep levels, we always need to appreciate the different levels/ aspects of our Being, to learn to integrate them better. More to be said on this at a later date.
