Our relationship with our cells

Our intelligence is built on the intelligence of all our tiny cells
Initiatic science tells us that each cell of our body is a living creature, a minute, intelligent soul, which breathes and eats, and secretes and projects certain substances. Just think of all the different types of cells in the body and how they all work differently: the cells of the stomach, the brain, the heart, the liver, the sexual organs, and so on, are all specialists in their own particular field. And the sum total of these intelligent little creatures and their activity constitutes our individual intelligence.
Yes, our intelligence is built on that of all these tiny cells: we are dependent on them and they on us; together we constitute a unit. On the physical plane we can do nothing without the consent of our cells; the day they stop working, all the different organs and systems of our body – digestion, elimination, respiration, etc. – stop functioning.

Humans beings are the synthesis of the different levels of intelligence that coexist within them. This is why we must get into the habit of ‘visiting’ our cells and communicating with them. And, you know, they look forward to our visits. They are always there, ready and waiting to serve us, whereas we neglect and abandon them: we do not care one bit for them. People who smoke, for instance, or drink immoderately are damaging the lovely souls that dwell in their heart and lungs; they turn a deaf ear to the complaints and pleas of these cells and continue to ill-treat them, even to the point of making themselves ill.


You must treat your inner population with love and care, and then, if anything starts to go wrong, they will warn you and you can take certain precautions. In this way you will avoid many unpleasant situations. Otherwise no one will warn you of approaching problems, and at the last minute, when it is already too late to take preventive measures, you will wonder why you were not forewarned. But if you know how to relate to your cells, they will keep you informed of the slightest problem, for they love you. Loving thoughts and kind words can do your organs and limbs a great deal of good. Your health would be greatly improved if you developed the habit of thinking of your cells and talking to them for just a few minutes every day.

Try this exercise: place your hand on your solar plexus and speak to your cells. Ask them to cure all your health problems, but remember to thank them for all the good work they do. You can be sure that they will hear you, because the solar plexus governs all the unconscious functions: secretion, growth, circulation, digestion, elimination, respiration, and so on. In this way you can talk to your cells and they will listen to you, and the greater your faith and your power of thought, the more effective this exercise will be.
