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.

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?”.

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