Your body is a chatter box! It is constantly talking to you. I was in an accupunture appointment the other day and my stomach was growling and gurgling and the practitioner said "wouldn't it be nice if we could speak that language and understand what our body is saying." I thought to myself..."Wait a minute! I do speak this language. It is just energy!" So I laid there and I listened. My grumbling tummy told me I ate too fast (which I did, always seem to be running around) and that it wanted me to be more mindful about what I put in my body.
Your body is telling you a lot. Aches and pains are telling you something, what is it? Another thing to notice is that what is on your mind often manifest in your body. This is why we have all of these sayings like "she is a pain in the neck" or "that gets under my skin". Literally our body is affected by our mind and our environment and when something goes amiss, you can figure out what it is just by listening to yourself. If you ignore yourself, you could be up for a long hall back to wellness, so listen early and often! Also notice your thoughts, they are powerful things and can eventually end up somewhere in your body.
You don't have to be an energy healer to listen to yourself. I am currently developing a class on this very topic with a wellness coach. It should be a great experience. But I wanted to get you thinking about this on your own. Also ready my article this week on Mind, Body, Spirit alignment - why the heck do we care?
Insightful Inspiration for the week
Pay attention to your body. Notice what is coming up for you. What ailments do you have? Write them down and just see if you can relate them to what is going on in your life. Also notice, what thought patterns are playing out with this? What body phrases do you use a lot? Do you refer to things as being a "pain in the neck" or something similar. How is this manifesting in your body? Notice how talkative your body is through out the day. Give thanks to the communication it is giving you, thank goodness it does talk to you! There is a little girl in the news who doesn't feel pain and because she can't hear her body she is always getting hurt and in danger. Click here to read about her. This is a good thing that you hear your body. Don't take it for granted. Listen closely and take note. You might start to notice you have more control over how you feel than you ever realized.
Good luck! I am wishing you a week full of wellness and good converstations with your body.
