Welcome to Life is You!
Hi my name is Alison, I like the name Ali because it means 'wings' in Italian, particularly relevant as I often have out-of-body experiences and spend a lot of time flying around the astral. My experiences have taught, and teach, me so much on all levels, really an incredible journey.
The inspiration for the name of this site Life is You, goes back to the days when I was pregnant. During the pregnancy, practically from day 1 I could feel what I can only describe as a butterfly in my belly, I could feel that life growing within, it was truly wonderful.
On giving birth each time (I have two kids) I felt the life that had grown within exit my body and it was as if I were empty, not in a depression kind of way, I just could not feel that 'butterfly of life' any longer. It wasn't until years later when thinking about this that I suddenly realised that I am that Life, we all are, we are life and life is us. We are that butterfly feeling, that spark, that flame, this may appear such a simple revelation but the implications are far-reaching.
We are all Life, we are all connected through being part of the same thing, life is everywhere but we can't see the invisible connections, the connections we have with all that lives. My out-of-body/astral experiences have continually shown me how we are not separate, how time and space can be jumped, how there is no distance between us. Once I even experienced myself as everything, as the universe.
All very well but how can it help us live our lives on Earth? My experiences have shown me how important it is that we do indeed live our lives well, because through doing this we can evolve and every person who grows just a little contributes to the evolution of our planet, we are all connected as I said before, just one person growing and evolving can make a difference. Such is the importance of living our lives well and making a positive contribution while we are here.
Life is You is about helping people to live better lives, we are not just a physical being, to live well we must look at ourselves as a whole, mind body and spirit, we cannot separate the physical from the spiritual, or our minds from our body, all three areas interact and make up who we are, indeed I believe our health issues should be looked at in a holistic manner, looking at the cause instead of just treating the symtoms.
We need to live more balanced lives, a person may be a superfit athlete but be unfit spiritually, a spiritual person may be physically unfit etc., most of us also need to learn how to use our minds and be more focused individuals.
This site is about how to live well, and living well does not necessarily mean sacrifice, it doesn't mean always eating healthy food and becoming obsessed about being slim and about exercising, it simply means living in a balanced way and yes this means eating healthy food, doing exercise and having some sort of spiritual practice but it doesn't mean being obsessive, sacrificing all 'non-healthy' treats and meditating in a cave for 2 hours a day.
We are Life, we came to Earth to experience, to be physical, to create, to express who we are and, believe it or not, to enjoy ourselves too.
