listen to your body

A Call to Listen to Your Body

A call to listen can come at the most inconvenient time...or it might come within an ordinary moment. The question is... can you be present with yourself and respond? It means changing course, slowing down, perhaps letting go of an agenda. When you listen to a prompting you are receiving a sacred gift.  You are able to be with yourself in a nourishing way and receive.

Your body always tells the truth. Your mind will create doubt and sabotage your results. Get out of your head and experience quality time with your body. By quieting down you can begin hearing yourself from a deeper level. Giving your physical symptom's sensations and feelings space to rise up and release.  

My own healing journey requires that I listen and respond to my inner calling. Recently I completed a calling which began over five years ago. My new eworkbook is here! Body Healing Practices is filled with self care inquiries and recorded guided meditations supporting my client's during and after CranioSacral Therapy.

When we work together, you will have access to my new eworkbook Body Healing Practices filled with empowering self care tools. 

Carry Love Into Each Day

My wish for you is to carry the loving spirit of the Holidays.

 

By slowing down.

By being kind.

By being fully present.

 

Can you feel yourself when you slow down?   Each time you listen to your thoughts, feelings, and sensations you are experiencing your whole heartedness.

 

Not everyone's Holidays are filled with laughter and light. Some are separated from family. Some are alone. Some are grieving. Above all be gentle with your precious heart.

 

As I reflect on this year, I am grateful for the gift that flows through my hands and heart. Through the gentle magic of touch, my clients feel goodness fill their bodies.  Everything is sacred.  I believe we are here to connect with the grace that always surrounds us.

 

Remember as you open your heart, your body absorbs goodness. The more you receive the essence of life the more you have to give. Goodness is true nourishment that sustains and heals.

 

I am grateful for you in my life. Our work together confirms the power of the human spirit.

 

May your New Year be filled with joy and peace.

 

Part Two: When Desires and Bodies Collide

As I write this the parallels with the outer world stand out. Past and present suffering collides in the world around us and within our bodies. Conflict creates polar opposites that keep us separate. 

Love vs hate.

Trust vs fear.

Peace vs war.

Uncertainty during these times is stirring up our bodies emotionally and physically. Our bodies are dialoguing with us yet we can't break the code. Deeper understanding is possible only when we listen to our bodies. 

You desire what everyone desires.......to feel good, to be healthy, and to exercise your freedom of choice to do what you want.   When your body is out of sorts, you want what ever is happening to go away...to stop interfering with life. Even though you may worry about your body's health, imagining the worst possible outcome, you desire relief.

What do you do when your desire and body collide?
Doing your daily life requires energy. When your body speaks back with tightness and low energy do you push through or slow down?  Do your habits run the show?  Can your create space to you give yourself time to listen?

Your body is not the enemy. Your body will continue to send signals that escalate from subtle twinges to painful sensations until you act. 

One client sought CranioSacral for nerve tingling and numbness in her face and neck. During the session I held space for her body as an ally. Within her body is the key to unlocking the emotional memory that brings her into alignment.

What appears as pain is the body's wisdom presenting the road map for release.  Once the body's suffering is welcomed as she/he is, the body will respond by letting protective layers of tightness, tingling, and muscles spasms settle.

When an emotional memory comes home for integration, your physical body can soften and hold an alignment allowing space to function properly. Your emotions can flow again soothing stress and responding with ease to daily demands . Self understanding allows deeper self acceptance.

Remember your innate human rights.
to breathe and be
to listen to body as an ally
to find your voice and be heard
to take a stance
to act with kindness

Remember we are here to help one another.
Breathe.
