Sit quietly with your eyes closed and thank your body for its wisdom and the faithful way it serves you. Gently bless your body. With as much acceptance as you can, focus your attention on any pain or illness you are experiencing and ask your body what you need to do to help alleviate the discomfort. Open your heart and mind to recognizing and acting on the clues your body is giving you.
