I have realized my body speaks to me. I am going to use this site to share about my experience as I am learning how to listen, and respond.
It was in 2007 or so when I really started to pay attention to the fact that my body had some important stuff to say, and information about my own experience that I wasn’t otherwise aware of. I was feeling confused about my current relationship. I didn’t know with my conscious mind exactly how I felt, and because of this, I didn’t know how to communicate what I sensed was going on. One night, after a great modern dance class where we did a whole bunch of rolling around on the floor, sensing our bodies in different ways, I found that all of a sudden I had some clarity. I knew what I needed to say to my boyfriend. And even though I was scared of disappointing him, I felt strong and grounded. I knew that it was important for me to find a way to speak my truth.
The realization that I can turn to my body to find my truth has helped me immeasurably. What I have come to know for sure is that my body doesn’t lie. It can’t lie. It is an instrument of life force or spirit, and my body can only speak with love. That said, I still have a long way to go to always understanding what it wants to communicate. Most often what I get is a feeling, a knowing about my truth or some action I need to take, and I often will have no idea how to explain it. This is sometimes confusing for myself, and others, because I don’t have an explanation for why. This knowing can also be amazingly comforting and empowering. Since I have begun to listen to my body-whenever I can hear it, I have found myself being catapulted towards my right life, towards my dreams and my heart’s desires.
I have found that the key is in finding stillness and in listening. It is also in the desire and willingness to know what it is that I really want for my life. I am glad you have found my blog, and I am honored that you have taken the time to read what I have to share. Please come back often.
