What is Soulmatic Embodiment?
Soulmatic Embodiment means “conscious awareness in all cells” and refers us to the original divine essence as presence, light and sound; an experience of a vibrating energetic field. Soulmatic embodiment is an innate intuitive form of somatic energetic awareness as the perception of “being in” soul/conscious body presence with a felt sense awareness, coupled with the body’s intelligence as recreated by Bonno Ray. This approach is the assimilation of different eastern and western “therapies” previously recreated by Peter Levine, Bert Hellinger, Randolph Stone, John Chitty, Franklyn Sills, Emilie Conrad, Raymond Castellino, Cherionna Menzam-Sills and many others and is designed to return us to our natural state of surrendered being in connection with the whole.
The essence of this body of work is intended for healing from deep trauma, mental illness and ancestral imprints and family inheritance, in order to restore spaciousness, presence, movement, flow, connection to our divine essence and shift in the way we relate with ourselves and the world.
The body is the shore on the ocean of being
- Sufi (anonymous)
Before becoming a fetus, the body is originally fluid, full of light and emptiness. According to Emilie Conrad, we originally come from the water and maintain this fluidity. Soulmatic embodiment strives towards complete restoration of its original divine design, or blueprint.
The body is approached as a bag of fluid sensations. As we meet this body with awareness, the heaviness which obstructs the perceived lightness becomes tangibly lighter and lighter. The body holds the key to healing trauma, it’s own trauma, and through the body itself it is clear about what it needs to restore its own flow.
When we clean the temple by removing trauma and personal identification, light will return. There are many different ways to clean our temple and we have simplified a few ways to bring the knowledge into everyday use to maintain, prevent and even go deeper into the natural state of human design. These are fundamental building blocks for living in connection with nature without getting caught in the trappings of the senses; thoughts, feelings, aversions and emotions. Cleansing the temple with fasting, detoxing with a fruit or raw food diet and/or a mucusless diet is a great idea. It is important to also consider basic hydration with distilled water, fruit juices, vegetable juices or even urine. Exercises or movements are also essential and help to create movement with stuck energy.
How can one actually listen well to a body filled from years of unconscious eating? The body is dehydrated, acidic, overloaded with toxins and this disconnection from our nature is accepted as normal.

Soulmatic embodiment is our natural birthright and the return to embodiment means that one is consciously choosing to incarnate here on earth, fully receiving the gift of their life. Optimal body intelligence is fully soul connected and in the body, embodied. Instead of trying to get, run to, find happiness in awakening or enlightenment, one experiences the natural desire to come home into oneself. Then in this way, we realize the body is our true home and temple and we start to become more conscious of our daily activities and states of being through our embodiment. Again, we become like children in our innocent way of experiencing the world through our purified senses and diminished sense of self importance yet increasingly more independent and self sufficient with a natural self esteem.
As we embody ourselves more deeply, trust and safety become more naturally experienced by the self. From this base of self trust and safety, a greater sense of freedom is felt. Embodiment makes the traps of the mind easier to identify. The previous tendencies to label and separate the world start to become less interesting and a new way of being starts to emerge. The felt sense of oneness becomes more coherent as separation and the importance of the idea of separation becomes duller.
In essence, we become free.
Soulmatic embodiment is also a mystical paradox. Through embodiment, we tap into our super consciousness where meditation is not done by you, it is done by the soul, and the force that fuels the soul. We can also call this “Wu Wei”and “Zerotation”. Often meditation urges us to get somewhere, go to the other side, to have experiences, find idols and gurus, etc. Meditation is best experienced in the “non action to pursue”, meaning there is no doer. Meditation is a way of life. God lives within you as you and there is no you. We learn to be at peace with what is currently present, here, now.
Most forms of so-called meditation are deceptive as another unconscious means of control, escapism from unrecognized trauma, grief, and pain of separation. Meditation can even strengthen personal identification. The only reason it exists is because we have chosen to give it attention and perpetuate the idea by continuing to create with it. What would happen if we stopped creating with the person in the personal identification. Vipassana meditation touches on the use of body sensations through observation without labeling and when used with trauma informed clarity, can be an incredible tool for self transformation.
Somatic embodiment is a lifestyle. A deep “YES!” to devote oneself to the magic and mystery of being fully here, and maturely dealing with all the facets that are cutting you off from your lifeforce. Disconnection is a state of being that we have been taught to consider normal. By continuing to bring awareness to yourself, new neural pathways are formed in the brain that help to continue the momentum of connection. Bringing attention to your experience will bring disconnection to connection and in time, the felt sense of being will increase as well.
Our own self containment as the mystery itself unfolding, is one of the most important parts of embodiment. We are constantly unfolding and are also a mystery unto ourselves. There is a strength and power inherent in the intimacy between ourselves and the mystery. Also, there is wisdom in the recognition that our personal experiences are meant to enhance and enrich our communion with ourselves and are gifts of the spirit. Just as a mother knows its child well, with all of the ways she experiences the child grow, inherent in this connection are the ways that she would not be able to explain to others to enable them to have the same experience. So is the way of the mystery. There are experiences we have that are just ours, not meant for anyone else simply because they weren’t gifted to them, and that means that the other may not receive the fullness of the gift as originally gifted.
“Until the pitch of enlightenment is thrown out of your system by the simple confrontation with its futility, it will continually mislead you, and once it is kicked out, you will see there is no need for it”.
Louis Brawley, Goner, The final travels of UG Krishnamurti, p.23.
“Whatever you do in the pursuit of truth or reality takes you away from your own very natural state in which you always are. It's not something you can acquire, attain or accomplish as a result of your effort. All that you do makes it impossible for what already is there to express itself. That is why I call this your natural state. You're always in that state. What prevents what is there from expressing itself in its own way is the search. The search is always in the wrong direction, so all that you consider very profound, all that you consider sacred, is a contamination in that consciousness. You may not [Laughs] like the word contamination but all that you consider sacred, holy and profound is a contamination. There's nothing that you can do, it's not in your hands. This is something which I can't give because you have it. It is ridiculous to ask for a thing which you already have. There isn't anything to get from anybody. You have what I have. I say you are there”.
- The Natural State, U.G. Krishnamurti
“There is no teaching of mine and never shall be one. A teaching implies a method or a system, a technique or a new way of thinking to be applied in order to bring about a transformation in your way of life. What I am saying is outside the field of teachability. It (the natural state) is simply a description of the way you stripped of the machinations of thought, are also functioning. The natural state is not the state of a self-realized, God-realized man. It is not a thing to be achieved or attained. It is not a thing to be willed into existence. It is there. It is the living state”.
