Listening to Your Body: Wellness Expressed
Our bodies are the magic fortune tellers that encompass our souls. Our bodies are amazing – they power us through strenuous tasks and assist us in creating our lives and our worlds; they give us a physical outlet to express ourselves, teach us self care by telling us what we need (food, water, rest, exercise, etc), and endure and protect us from our environment; they serve as a container for our feelings, and heal us when we’re ill.
But what’s often ignored or overlooked is their ability to tell us when we’re missing something – when we’re straying from our intended path. Just as they serve as a container for our feelings, our bodies will also tell us when we’re not paying attention to an important emotion we need to look at. Just as they will tell us what we need, we humans are also pretty talented at ignoring the signals from our bodies if there is something it’s asking for that we don’t want to give it. It’s so easy today to solve the little problems within our bodies by a little pill, a quick doctor’s visit, or even herbs or an acupuncture session. And though the holistic treatments are all incredible tools that we have at our disposal, it’s important to look at what our little magic fortune tellers are telling us first and foremost. That acupuncture session will do you no good if you do not back it up with looking within to see what, within you, created the pain/symptom/illness, and work through it within yourself.
This is where coaching can come in handy. It’s perfectly normal, perfectly human to have difficulty sometimes looking within for the signs and the answers. Our bodies have much of what we need to get the answers, but sometimes it’s important to have a guide to get you there. Someone to hold your hand and help you through the process of figuring it all out. It is no longer a secret that our emotions link to our physical wellbeing. But, because of the societal conditioning to run from them, it can be easier said than done when it comes to utilizing them to heal ourselves. Based upon the paths to wholeness, intuitive coaching techniques, a mind/body/heart approach, and your innately awesome power that I can help you draw out, it is possible to get to a point where the little magic fortune teller of your body can be utilized to its maximum potential.
