What an interesting title, huh? I wanted to write a couple of thoughts about how parts of our bodies were seen in Ancient Hebraic worldview.
I am always enthused by these things, not only because it means a lot to me personally to take in anything in Hebrew or Hebraic viewpoints, but I also want to consider these from this contemplation – how we can hear God’s Voice, and also know what’s going on inside us.
In Ancient Hebrew, a handful 0f parts of your body actually were viewed as a “seat” where certain virtues reside. Interesting, huh? Did you know that your kidneys are the seat of your emotions?
Do what you want with this writing, but I find it very interesting, and wanted to share it with my friends.
Body Part Place of Residing
Kidney Seat of the Emotions
Loins Seat of Confidence
Heart Seat of Passion
Belly Seat of the Emotions
Gut Seat of the Unconscious Mind or Spirit man
Gut Seat of Hidden Instincts
Heart Seat of Thoughts
Heart Seat of Emotions
Heart Seat of the Mind
Bowels Seat of Compassion
Here’s some general thoughts:
- your belly can speak to you about what type of emotions you are having
- your gut (where your spirit man is) can indicate what your spirit man is saying
- true thoughts, emotions, and mind originate from your heart
- interesting thing that nowhere in Ancient Hebrew was it indicated that something in your head was a seat for anything… (just saying) lol
- passion has to be discovered in your heart, not your surroundings. Ask your heart questions, then get busy listening.
- compassion makes you have bowel movements. LOL! (had to put this in here)
