          A bold title you say? If/as you will read the following paragraphs, considering the information in each one and then in context with the information in the others, you may be less skeptical. I base much of the following on the belief that, although the body vibrates at a lower frequency than does the mind (referring to the frequencies by which our senses operate), I believe it communicates a measure of the Soul's energy all the same.  And a primary purpose of the body is to tell us, point-blank and in its own language, what we have often not otherwise perceived.  Learning to listen to this "Body-Mind" is likely the most highly efficient path for preventative health maintenance. It is also a primary means for reclaiming one's original essence and soul-infused Presence, and for "grounding" that via meaningful action on the earth plane. Why, or How ?

         The body performs this service not just in spite of, but largely by, it's very design, which provides for storing previously-buried personal memories (and their associated emotions AND resources), until perceived *safe* and/or *ready* to remember, re-organize, and integrate. The later actions are facilitated by the nature of our body as a vessel for transmutation of our "lower elements" into Light via life's dualistic predicaments. And that nature is exactly what the "chalice" is all about. I'll say more on that in the last paragraph of this section.

         I will clarify that what is also recovered are the *means of access* to *inner* resources. And as any business person knows, access and opportunity are everything. In that light you may find interesting the charts in "Achievement of Goals, Attainment, & the Role of Inner Work - A Flow Chart of the Human Psyche in Growth Facilitation". How long an individual actually takes to begin "re-membering" one's whole self, or when someone is "supposed" to delve into the mines of the unconscious, or even why one needs to store any particular memory, not to mention how, are some of those juicy conundrums that have inspired many students of psychology and spirituality. Is it through such ponderings that we may come to reveal depth and meaning to all aspects of our lives and to all life, to embody our ideals, to "re-enter-connect" one's whole Being ? And what really is "Whole" ? Related to that question is the essay, "A Gestalt Perspective" and "Seven Phases of Personal Growth." May not divine opportunities exist in any earnest striving for truth ? The below "Class Questions" are quite basic (in no way implying "easy" however). On the other hand they are designed to help us look further into our own internal mind-body-spirit relationships.

          A term coming of age (slowly, but steadily, since the 1980's) is "Body-Memory," and relates to how, when, where, and why experience on any and every level of awareness is stored in the body, accessed and expressed  - consciously and/or unconsciously. How this correlates functionally to one's anatomy, emotionality, mental routines, psycho-spiritual awareness, path, purpose and integration, is not only fascinating, but actually describes an individual in a very practical way.
          A semi-technical explanation of that can be found in "Body-Mind Integration in the Personal Growth Process" - The how's and why's of psycho-emotional storage of tension in the body-mind. Added Since 2011 in the reference section of the same page was "The science behind the body-mind relationships," as well as various addendum essays for clarifying these topics for *common sense* preventative maintenance application, and for further completing the context and clarifying the dynamics and processes involved. These include "Body Awareness and Communications, as Related to Body-Memory and Integration" and "Muscle Q & A" - an OVERVIEW of the lesser known dynamics of cause and effect dynamics of muscle tension, acute and chronic injury, with regard to mind-body interface & function - for athletes, yoga & health practitioners.
          More technical aspects are initiated in "Adrenaline vs Endorphins and What's That Got To Do With Sports, Brain Activity, Muscles and Tendons, and Healthfully Extended Aging - Naturally", incl. Charts of System Interfaces in Psycho-Physiology of Fascia Memory (2012-2013). For a more comprehensive background and related technical views on that, you may want to check out the "Fascia Memory Project", based on the "Fascia Memory Theory" - fascia-based emotional memory storage system.
          Few people in "modern society"  survived childhood feeling safe to truly feel life from within their bodies.  Result: we learn a mentally and emotionally armored, semi-defensive relationship with our bodies and our environment, yet strive to feel "the connection" with others.  The musculature of the body can be "read" in terms of how it has been held and moved in response to ones environment.  From this one can assess the connectedness among coping strategies, challenges, skills, and gifts, the mind, the body, and the emotions, and the path of one's self-knowledge, self-healing, and self-transformation, as elaborated in

"The Body Pattern Assessment/Reading and Understanding the Pattern Triad."
          Considering all these aspects, one might say that all our conditions --- being based on events, one's *past* subjective perception of them, and how one reacted to them on the various levels -- is "psycho-somatic." On the other hand, we also have the capacity to learn to respond -- with conscious "response-ability" -- to life's challenges. One question I have toyed with is the relationship of aging to the effects of storing psycho-somatic material in the body over time. And there is the question of whether or not there is also built into these [mind-body-spirit relationships and related systems] an incentive to deal with the issues as we are given opportunities to clear that up. Perhaps the dynamic of 'pain' is related to this question (and perhaps the following essay <grin>): "WHY PAIN? Notes on Pain, Awareness & Denial" (Physical and other levels) -- Aspects in Developing a Practical Approach with Compassion

                    And speaking of incentives... Mind-Body Awareness -- as the bottom line of preventative health maintenance -- is one of the most simple, efficacious, & cost effective forms of health insurance there can possibly be! And such focused awareness to the body, which occurs naturally in massage therapy, brings circulation (of blood, nerve, Ki or Chi, and bio-magnetic energies), and thereby all of one's natural healing capacities to the cells. If you want any cell system to heal, improving the circulation to, around it, and through it (with regard to radiant bio magnetism) is basic and essential. And in very few cases is found complaining cells where circulation is plentiful near everywhere it's needed. Circulation improves where caring attention is directed -- on whatever level of focus and whether the attention is from external or internal sources.


          Like kids, cells do best if we keep them fed, clean, and feeling loved. And as we learn to give them healthy messages and especially to just listen to them, they will tell us what changes need attending to. And, like kids, they will adapt and find a way to cope -- if at all possible, under most any condition, if you tell them they have to. But how would you like the results of getting used to living underfed and unclean? "Used to" means adapting just as inner-city kids have. (e.g.: They are not always the most easy to get along with, cooperative, or happy kids you've ever known, I suspect.) It works the same for the cells in the body. So how do we remedy such a situation? Well, of course, first fix the supply system and take care of those basics. Secondly, remedy the attitude that got them that way or they will never feel they can drop the coping and learn what a happy communicative, sharing lifestyle is about. Maybe some hints might be found at "My Cells - My Children" & other metaphorical prose for the 'Body-Parenting' Approach to Mind-Body Integration.

          Likewise, cell systems will adjust based on our messages to them, even those that are counter to long-term health. They can actually maintain those adjustments for a whole lifetime if they don't get a corrective message. I.E.: If we, as infants, often needed to tense ("armor up") various muscles for emotional or physical protection (when adults around us acted insensitively or worse), we most likely continued through adulthood to hold various muscles in an overly tense state. Muscles need to know what relaxation is, as well as what intense work is, in order to have an appropriately full range of tonicity/contractedness, and to find the right tone for any given condition.
          With body-awareness, we enhance our senses naturally, as well as provide opportunity for our self-healing mechanisms to be turned back on, and thereby give the cells the corrective messages about tonicity, circulation, function, etc. Sometimes we will receive insight about a corrective action we must take; i.e.: by newly feeling the need to adjust our posture or some kind of bodily movement, or even due to reviving memories (that were previously suppressed). Details of these processes are explained in the above noted essay, "Body-Mind Integration in the Personal Growth Process" - The basic how's and why's of psycho-emotional storage in the body-mind.

        If it is true that "God helps those who help themselves," or that "the door to the heart opens from the inside," and if it is true that humans learn by exercising free will and making adjustments based on the results, ... then it most probably follows that the amount of God's healing energy flowing into our cells (and lives in general) depends on how much of all that we allow or make happen -- via our conscious or unconscious messages to our cells. And might the doors to the cells be on the inside too -- not just allegorically speaking, but also directly referring to our attitudes, beliefs, and thoughts via the mind-body relationship?

        And if such considerations have merit, might it not follow that such circulation of energies (via our thought, feeling, and action) is the only thing that does heal a cell, organ, system, living organism, situation, etc? And if that were true, what could be more effective than focused awareness on our cells, which massage therapy naturally encourages ? (And yes, so do various self-applications such as Tai Chi, Chi Gong, and yoga, including "Tensing Yoga").

        To the body-mind, cells are the most basic source of reproduction, instruction (DNA), and metabolic energy. Each cell is a *nuclear-powered* cottage industry, that no human technology has even come

close to matching in energy production efficiency. It provides alchemical transmutation capacities as well as highly specialized function. They are the physiological basis for each living organism, therefore for life itself. Is it conceivable that each living cell is a living bridge, a Chalice, by which the Father aspect of God has joined with the Mother aspect of God in order to create life on earth ? What would make this bridging connection stronger; what would open further the cell's doors to the Divine ? How about certain kinds of thoughts and feelings of unconditional love (or prayer, meditation, imagery, or some activity that encourages a similar focus) ?

         Some ideas on that: a summary essay, "Cells & Healing Changes: How I Believe What I See; Building, Cleansing, and Paradigm Management; Body-Parenting & Healing Cell-Talk" (Rev'd Apr 2011) at the page, "Notes on Beliefs, Healing, and Prayer" - "Bridging Prayer & Science" - faith & intuition, Spirit working logic & emotion, and a little science to boot. Tools for working with the cells - self-healing on an energetic level, plus supportive science, concepts and references, and "'Getting Super': Sample Personalized Visualization Prayer Chart" (more application of science than prayer in this case, as related to *Cellular Re-Organization* and engaging *neuroplasticity*.) (New Mar 2013). Also "Focusing Love-Organized Healing Waters", or Water-Charging (incl. a section for the Neuro-Endocrine System), based on some very inspiring scientific findings by Masaru Emoto, including Dr. Emoto's message for transforming the water (molecules) effected by nuclear radiation.

A "Mind-Body Integration" Class Topic List


Some Questions We Might Ask Toward Re-Membering Total Being:

Are feelings a separate reality from the spiritual ?
    How does one create "teamwork"
          among all aspects of one's Being with
                    Choice in fully responding to life ?

How does Breathing relate LINKSHELL.png
to the relaxation or contraction of muscle fibers,
to the extension and contraction of awareness in the body,
to the retrieval or repression of Body-Memory and feeling,
to the processes of physiological aging,
to "being Present" ?

Some have regarded the body as a "drag" on the spiritual process.
Are the body and emotions just something to transcend ?          
Is simply controlling the body the answer ?          
      When mind is over matter, what are the body and emotions really doing ?
            What is the purpose of disease and injury ?
Why is it said that "You can not release
         what you can not forgive, and that
                   you can not forgive what you can not feel" ?
What does Inner Child therapy(s) have in common wth Body Awareness Enhancement ? What is the relationship between "Body Awareness" and the basics of
preventative health care, rehabilitation, and health insurance ?

Chalice Over Stonehenge in Flower of Life and Man © Chris Pringer April 2016
"Chalice Over Stonehenge
in Flower of Life and Man"

© Chris Pringer April 2016

        Symbolically, the "Soul Chalice" 'on high' extends itself as a radiant form into the deep green grassy field, as the descending Violet Flame "Tube of Light" or Aura around the chalice is extended into "the plane of Matter" around the "Chalice in Man." Pi-ratio rays reach out symmetrically through a "Tree of Life" symbol and into it's natural and symbolic source, the "Flower of Life," all girded inside a rainbow-gilded dome symmetrically around the chalice, with all suspended over and about the ancient Stonehenge complex.

       The rainbow here is symbolic of the human energy centers, or chakras, which (for one primary function) transduce (convert) spiritual energies (of very high frequency) into that which we can safely use in our physical bodies. The chakras are key components of the human energy body as represented by the chalice, and the capability to transduce such energies increase per our individual spiritual development. As is the whole array of symbols here about transduction of spiritual energy into all Humanity.
       Artistically, the upper chalice is of the 'Synthe-Sphere Chalice Multi-Vortex Horizontal Chalice-Gradient' theme, as is the lower chalice, sans the 'Multi-Vortex' aspect. This image, a pictoral mandala of balance, is the latest of a number of versions initiated in 2006. Originally the theme included a Microsoft background image, until my daughter, Ahnna ('Ahnna Galena' at FAA) took photos of Stonehenge in 2011. The background is actually a composite of two of her photos, one used for the foreground, The other used just for the sky alone.

Note on the 'Abundance Set' of web pages at this site:

        If some folks were to see how I live and hear of my having written an essay on abundance, they would be sure that I was either a comedian, a hypocrite, or a blathering idiot. My response to that would be, "well, that's understandable laughing, given the usual definitions..." for abundance or success - primarily based on the degree to which one "understands" karma, belief patterns, and life decisions about what might be called ones priorities. [And no, that does not mean that everyone with an equivalent understanding needs to live as I do. I know, "phew!" (HA!)]

        In any case, I am happy to say that I am rich in many ways that are not associated with how the image of 'success' has been promoted in the media. And essentially that: further understanding of the definitions, values, and concepts regarding such terms as 'magnetism,' 'achievement,' 'attainment,' and 'true abundance' would be a valuable thing in this 'all about winning' era, and I hope to provide at least some clarification in the essays, "Attainment And Achievement -- The Alignment Of Beliefs, Desires, And Needs", "Whole Being Integration In Manifesting Abundance...", and "Achievement of Goals, Attainment, And the Role of Inner Work: A Flow Chart of the Human Psyche in Growth Facilitation and ...", referred to as "The Goal Chart", and which includes "Heart's Desire, Ideals, & Accomplishment" (Aug'11).

        The term 'karma' may also deserve some attention, and that is covered more extensively in the essay, Evolution Trends..." in the section "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace", and in essay, "Victims, Compassion, & Responsibility -- Notes on The Emotional-Body, Denial of Pain, & 'Easy Answers' (Not!)", as well as in essay, "WHY PAIN? Notes on Pain, Awareness & Denial," Pertains to Physical and other levels - Aspects in Developing a Practical Approach with Compassion. You'll find many other references to essays at this site here, and here's where I toss in my 2nd disclaimer below (and some humor).
 


"Synthesis" Shirts !!!

Some have claimed that wearing a "Synthesis" shirt cured that groundless state of begging for extreme circumstances, just so they could locate the center of the universe!!!
Wink
Ok, not really, but some did say
it just made them feel good to wear it!


You can always find out for yourself via the "Synthesis" Shirts from Chalice Productions - where you can have yourself centered between mandalas silk screened on both sides of a shirt! smile

This was one of my first mandalas - but my only shirt (for sale Wink) - There are still a few hundred left - and with quantity discounts, you can make me a deal!

Chalice Artwork
and realizing
or "integrating"
the Inner Chalice
     
            Presenting early to more recent artwork (by yours truly, with the *Chalice* as eclectic symbol for the energetic infrastructure of our Being, bridging ALL that one is - a "vehicle" for the balancing & integrating of Humanity, individually & communally: thence ChaliceBridge.Com and its theme, "Chalice Bridging Arts & Sciences." There are both hand-made & artistically rendered computer-generated works, and a little bio on how it began & developed.
          My artwork is, overall, an eclectic/symbolic blend of multiple layers of brights and subtles, chalice-theme components based and arranged in sacred geometry, rounded with a balance of textures and grounding touch. This page elaborates on many aspects of sacred geometry and the chalice, including the mystical symbolism of the chalice: this precedes anything any religion has, or may yet, to do with it, and represents (here, if not universally) the human embodiment of Spirit.
          That includes broader themes, beginning with the origins of Man and ancient archetypes, and section by section, cover symbology, geometry and communication, the related but deeper (more original) archetypic symbology & meanings, various body-mind-spirit correlations, and many would-be paradoxes & mysteries. Including how & why the "sacred geometry" relates the pi-ratio to the proportion & function that is relevant to the DNA of all Life, how that relates to ones cells, to whole health.
          The page explores how all that symbolically relates to (led to?) the Legend of the "Holy Grail." For instance, in the "Pragmatic Balancing" section, we look at the legend as symbolizing the psycho-social evolution of Man, beginning with a recounting of the early history of "The Church," the orthodoxy vs the Gnostics, relating the essence of that to the world's key religions - by nature of that which unites all religions. And to emotional intelligence ("EQ") that might, on the intra- and inter- personal levels, "bridge" humanity and transcend extremes, via interconnectedness and understanding.

"Multi 3D Chalice 3 (w2A&CntrHBI-v2)" © Chris Pringer 2013&16.
Born out of the 3D geometric visual "seen" in 1985. The vision/ visual was complete with correlations to deep (more original) symbology - which initiated the correlations to the legendary meanings of the Holy Grail (those having been edited by "the Church" since then). The above is as close to that as anything I've put in art form so far. We could call this "The Chalice as a symbolically vertical bridge on the symbolically horizontal plane of matter" (which symbolism and many more is elaborated at the page.)
