Our Bodies Speak to Us

Please know that no matter how long you’ve ignored your body’s wisdom or silenced your intuition, it’s still there, waiting for you to return and listen.

Here is a 2 minute practice to get you started:

Begin by putting your hand over your heart

Notice how your heart beats under your palm, and how your chest rises and falls with each breath you take.

Take 3 more breaths in this way.

Now, tune into your body and in a gentle voice, ask yourself “how am I feeling right now?”

The responses that arise might be sensations, feelings, visual, or words.

Notice what you are feeling

I feel______? Relaxed? Tired? Hungry? Thirsty? Jittery? Upset, Anxious, Happy etc

Take a moment to listen.

Then ask “What do I need right now?”.

Your body might respond with something like this:

I need a snack. I need to drink some water. I need to dance for 5 minutes and shake out my frustration from my morning commute.

Or it might provide you with deeper insights like: I’m actually upset, and need to have a conversation with ___about ___ I said yes too quickly because I felt like I had to, I actually need to say no instead of yes.

If we can create space for listening, we gain more awareness about what is true for us.

Our body is the temple to our soul

Do you see your body as a temple? In yoga and many other spiritual traditions the body is considered the temple of the soul.  Yet many of us can’t begin to imagine our bodies as safe, let alone sacred.  Our internal worlds might not feel safe, there might be pain, grief, and we would not…
