Feeling and sensing our body is an empowering capacity of awareness that we can all access. However, as we grow into adulthood, we tend to lose connection with this. It becomes blocked by childhood conditioning, limiting beliefs and self-perceptions, and the residue of past traumas.
When we learn how to feel more of our body and deepen our connection with it we access our intuition – the feeling guidance of our inner knowing – to support us through challenging situations. Tapping into our full body presence is how we awaken our creative potential; and how we access our natural state of well-being and ease as we navigate our inner and outer worlds.
Listening to the spontaneous signals that our body sends throughout the day – gut feelings, tugs at our heart, tense neck and shoulders sounds like a simple practice. However, most of us are in our heads, cut off and don’t know how to feel our bodies.
We also shut out challenging physical and emotional feeling sensations due to past traumas. And we are distracted by our environment: the fast pace of life, our digital gadgets and the unsettling state of the world. If we can’t feel present-moment sensations, we are relating and living through old patterns of guilt, shame or doubt.
Learning how to feel and listen to the full range of body sensations nurtures our relationship with our self and with others. This deeper sense of connection flows over into our connection with all of Life: heightening our sense of belonging and growing a trust in our self and others. Listening more closely to what our body needs – physical, mental and emotional healing happens.
When we return home to feeling our body again and again, we access the nourishing flow of life force energy within and around us. We open more expansively to all of Life and our unique gifts flow through us and from us into the world. Accessing our most valuable resource – our body – awakens trust, aliveness and joy.
