Do you know you have one of the greatest gifts from nature within you? Did you know that gift is there to guide you on your journey to lasting change, great health, and well-being? It is waiting for you to listen, and follow it to the roots of what ails you.
Did you know that gift is the wisdom of your mind and body?
What do I mean about tuning in to the wisdom of your mind and body?
Without a doubt where I am in my life, my dominant thoughts, fears, feelings, issues, show themselves in my physical health and well-being. I know that my body won’t BE better until whatever is at the root of what ails me is uncovered and resolved. Therefore, I continually check in with myself to note how I am feeling and doing on all levels, spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical. I take the wisdom of those experts and personalize it with a good, deep, honest look at myself and my life.
When my body is out of sorts, of course I triage to “stop the bleeding”, and/or relieve the pain, if needed, before I take my journey to the next level. As I tell my clients, when you have a freight train parked on you, you don’t really care at that moment how or why you ended up there. You just want out from under it, right?
Wouldn’t it be better to stop the cycle?
If you don’t look at what got you where you are, and change your course, then how do you know you won’t end up there again? Wouldn’t you rather get to the roots of what ails you and stop it in its tracks? Perhaps there are pearls of wisdom within that are waiting to enrich your life……
Dig deep. Be Honest. Be willing to get at the roots of your problems why, when, and how you are ready so that you don’t repeat those unpleasant patterns. Don’t most great parents want that for their children? In other words, be healthy, live well. Stop living the patterns that hold you back. And, LISTEN to those whispers before they become shouts that hit you up side the head and sideline you. Or, derail you….. And, aren’t you the parent for your Inner Child, and all other parts of yourself now?
What is your body trying to tell you?
It pretty much boils down to looking at metaphors. May I illustrate?
Have you ever had pain or tension in your neck? If you are like most people, you have at some point, right?
Did you question what you “did” that may have caused, or at least contributed to it? Maybe you postulated that you slept on it wrong. Or perhaps you suspected your pillow was the culprit. Or, maybe you thought you worked on the computer for too long. Maybe you craned your neck to watch your favorite little performer on stage in the school play. And, yes, those may have played a part.
But did you ask what was going on in your life at the time? Did you question what your dominant thoughts and resulting feelings were? Did you consider that perhaps your pillow, sleep posture, computer use, or “spectatorship” were just the proverbial “straw”?
Let’s look at the naked truth of your anatomy.
Above your neck is your head, which is generally considered to be the area in which your intellect resides. It is the “thought center”, where the brains behind your operation reside. Right?
And, below your neck is your heart (among other things, but bear with me here). Can you relate to your heart as the more “feeling” center? A part of you that guides your decisions from a more love-based, passion-driven, feeling oriented place?
Do your head and your heart always agree when there is a decision to be made? Is your heart always in it? Does your head always yield to your heart’s desires? Or, is there a tug-of-war going on?
What might it be like to be your neck living in between the two? Is it caught in that debate? Isn’t your neck the proverbial rope?
And, what if you have been sticking your neck out for others, or struggling to hold your head up high? What takes the brunt of those “efforts”?
Doesn’t pondering those questions take you in a very different direction than simply changing out your bothersome pillow when you get to it – again and again?
Are you listening to the wisdom of your heart, now? Is your head objecting?
Many people tell me they hold their stress in their neck. Asking the deep, tough questions can reveal much. But, being TRULY willing to listen to, and honor the answers, is how you resolve those cycles in terms of how you deal with your life.
Bodywork that supports resolving the physical patterns at the root will help more directly with the physical effects of stress.
What does the wisdom of your mind and body say? What opportunities are there for you to approach your life differently so that you not just feel better, but are actually BEING better?
Are you ready to tune in to the wisdom of your mind and body?
Tuning in helps you get to the roots of what ails you to create lasting change. It is a first big step toward re-writing those programs in your mind that are holding you where you are. It also is a huge step toward releasing those patterns as they play out in your body. Furthermore, the wisdom of your mind and body IS within you – a gift from nature awaiting your attention.
There are various resources and experts on the mind-body connection, each with their own expertise. They may talk of chakras, energy medicine, your intuition, etc. I have drawn from several perspectives over the years myself. Carolyn Myss, Barbara Brennan, Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz, Dr. Christine Page, Anodea Judith, and Louise Hay to name a few.
It is a matter of deciding its important, learning to listen, heightening your awareness, and learning to decode all of the wisdom, signs, and signals along the way. It is a process, which works for me, and many others just like you.
Your inner wisdom, the wisdom of your mind and body, is aware of what lies in all aspects of your mind, even beyond your conscious awareness. It can help you to resolve those unresolved emotional issues, and create new patterns of believing, thinking, and BEING.
You have the POWER within you to create your life and health.
You have the wisdom of your mind and body guiding you in doing that. And, all you have to do is….. Listen.
