What if you knew you mattered? by Chris Hammer

What if you knew you mattered?
Would your breath easily expand as your chest softens, no longer needing to take up little space?

What if you knew you mattered?
Would your heart beat out a rhythm of love and kindness, freed of the need to protect from the harsh loneliness?

What if you knew you mattered?
Would your stomach unknot as the nots of your existence are removed by the importance of your being?

What if you knew you mattered?
Would your spine lengthen into your up-right-fullness?

What if you knew you mattered? Would your feet plant firmly on the ground certain that you do belong on this earth.

What if you knew you mattered?
Would your legs strengthen in their resolve to support your stand for what you know is your truth.

What if you knew you mattered?
Would your knees express their natural flexibility as you move through an adventurous terrain?

What if you knew you mattered?
Would your face greet others with a generous open smile welcoming caring connections?

What if you knew you mattered?
Would you ears feel the embrace of loving music, words and intentions meant to fill places left empty from a distracted and coarse past?

What if you knew you mattered?
Would you skin tingle as it receives the touch of a hand gently cradling your precious body?

What if you knew you mattered?
Would your voice confidently sound out loud, no longer silenced from words swallowed back?

What if you knew you mattered?
Would your hands awaken soulful stirrings as they tenderly touch others in the places yearning for contact and recognition?

What if you knew you mattered?
Would your soul rejoice in the blessed union of emotions, mind, body and spirit as you joyously express your uniqueness in this world?
