Do You Listen to Your Body's Voice?
Your body has an innate
intelligence. We know this on one level, as your body knows how to
move you around - how to think and how to speak. But there is a lot
I have experienced, and helped clients experience, a
two way communication with our bodies. It is so compelling and full
of benefits. Once you experience it, you want this to become a
natural part of your life.
You may be thinking: “My body
is flesh and blood - it does not communicate.”
Let’s look at the definition of communicate:
2. To transmit information, thought, or feeling
so that it is satisfactorily received or understood
3. To open
into each other: connect
To communicate means opening up to
connect - to receive and transmit in a way that is understood. Yes,
this is possible with your body.
Your body takes commands
from your thoughts and emotions - you transmit information through
your thoughts and feelings. This is automatic.
constantly feels unsupported or thinks they are without support –
then the support structure of their body feels the effects and
issues like osteoporosis could set in. This is an instance of a body
taking command from someone’s thoughts and feelings. Continually
thinking and feeling unsupported communicates that message to the
body, to which the body complies, leading to bone decay and an
unsupported physical form.
There is another side of body
communication - the part where your body is able to communicate with
you. An example is if your shoulders are sore – and there isn’t a
physical reason like strenuous activity. This pain could be your
body’s way of telling you that you are carrying too many burdens, or
that you should revaluate what is on your plate and take something
If you find yourself with a chronic aliment without a
physical explanation, it could be your body’s way of trying to
express something to you. A sore and scratchy throat can be a sign
that you that you are swallowing your self-expression or your
During a period when I was working on being
non-judgmental, I began to sneeze every time I held a judgment -
even though there was nothing in my environment to be a cause. When
I asked why, I received, “You are putting your nose where it does
not belong,” which is in essence what we do when we judge others.
This communication alert from my body helped me refocus my efforts
and I am happy to say that it is no longer necessary!
you understand that the communication lines are open between your
thoughts and physical being – it becomes a powerful transformation
tool that you can fully take advantage of.
When I facilitate
my client’s transformation while in a meditative state – we can
directly ask an injured hip, for instance, what it looks and feels
like that day. How it presents itself and how it expresses its needs
to become perfect and whole - can then be addressed within the
healing session. If the hips need the energy of love or communicates
a need for strength – we have that pertinent information to be able
to work with the body, mind, emotions, and intentions fully to
fulfill the request. The hip could also tell us that a fear of the
future is inside of it, facilitating the journey of transformation
of that dense emotion.
After this wonderful communication and
healing work is accomplished, we again ask the hip to show what it
looks and feels like. A client could receive a vision of himself
walking easily or the next part of the transformation puzzle – but
the original communication is no longer valid as a new transformed
image takes its place.
Take the time to tune in and
listen to your body. It will tell you what needs to be
healed &/or what it needs from you. It can also give you a great
message like my sneezing! And, remember your body takes commands
from you – every thought and emotion - so be conscious to make them
positive and healing. A simple statement such as ‘my immune system
is optimal in all ways’ is a powerful communication.
