Things to Say to Your Body:

-You are worth loving

-I accept you as you are right now

-Thank you for the things you do

-My relationship with you is important

-Today, I choose to love you as you are

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.

Moving with Grief

Dancing with grief In my last post I talked about grief being a normal and natural reaction to loss of any kind. Yet words sometimes aren’t enough to express and process the array of thoughts, moods, sensations and emotions that accompany grief and loss.  Emotions need motion.  Emotions need space, space to be felt, moved,…
