When I hear people suggest that we “listen to our inner wisdom”, but they don’t offer any practical tips on how to do that… sometimes I wanna scream! I mean it’s the best advice you can give, but it’s nearly impossible to follow unless you know how. There are no intuition building courses taught in school. Society certainly doesn’t teach us to make decisions with our heart. So how exactly are we supposed to listen to our inner wisdom?
Our bodies are the key. Your body speaks your mind. It’s a fact that rules the world, and you can tap into its power just by being aware.
Actually, Body-Mind is a far more accurate description, because the physical body is intimately tied to your mental and emotional systems. Knowing that gives you an incredible advantage.
Your Body-Mind is the most powerful, personalized, multi-purpose, and fun tool available to improve your health and indeed, your entire life. It can even clearly tell you if a holistic technology would be beneficial to you. As you read through all the articles on this site, you will learn many simple ways to achieve success with your Body-Mind. I have been developing and playing with these techniques my entire life, and I can tell you from experience that they work.
The mind’s first step to self-awareness must be through the body. ~ George Sheehan
Your body shows you exactly what needs to shift in order to have your Best Life Ever. You must learn to interpret its signs, which is actually quite easy, and then take inspired action to come back into body-mind-soul alignment. The benefits include vibrant physical wellness, financial abundance, loving relationships, emotional peace, clarity of life purpose, and feeling fully alive again.
That sounds like a pretty good deal, doesn’t it? Just be present, pay attention to your body, follow the wisdom it gives you, and proceed to live a life so awesome that people off the street ask you what your secret is. Yah, I can handle that. How about you? 🙂
How To Read Your Body’s Signs in 5 Steps
Embrace the fact that your body and mind are intimately and permanently connected. Accept that beneath every little thing your body does lies a symbolic message that can help you win at life.
Choose to be patient with yourself and to accept whatever answers you get. There is no hard work or wrong answers here. Just noticing what is and receiving deeper information about it.
Be present throughout the day and notice all the physical sensations in your body. Tight muscles, headaches, muscle twitches, hot flashes, dizziness, cramps, pains, and even pleasurable sensations all hold messages for you. Let yourself notice them.
1st Level Interpretation: Using your mind to find the surface level physical cause. When you notice a physical feeling, look at what you are doing and what’s going on around you to find the correlation. Let the simplest answer jump out at you. If you take a bite of your lunch and feel a painful sensation, your body might be guiding you to new food choices.
2nd Level Interpretation: Using your intuition to find deeper meaning through symbolism. This is where you will mine the most gold! It takes practice and patience, but it is 110% worth it. Take a moment to get centered by focusing on your breath, and drawing your attention further inward. After a few slow, deep breaths, ask your body “What does that sensation mean for me right now?”. Relax and just notice what thoughts and feelings come to you. The answers you receive may be symbolic or straightforward and literal. And since life is a process, the wisdom you receive will grow over time and even more insight will be revealed to you. Be patient and enjoy the journey.
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly. ~ Buddha
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7
