True health is more than a lack of disease or pain. Emotional, mental and spiritual well-being all contribute to our overall experience of good health and positive satisfaction with ourselves and life. The new and evolving heath paradigm includes empowered self-awareness and a taking back of our power to actively participate in creating optimum mind, body and spirit wellness.
Your Body is Always Communicating…
Your body is always communicating to you and it is ready to revel both the positive and negative influences that are impacting your health. Yet, it’s messages often bypass logic and reasoning and are more intuitive in nature. For instance, pain or physical discomfort can be a type of intuitive message alerting you that something needs attention. Feelings of inner peace and harmony are also messages, informing you of a positive state of health. Your body communicates to you through your emotions, thoughts, sensations, images, vibration, messages, synchronicities and dreams. With a little help and practice you can learn how to better tune into the messages being sent your way and work in unison with your body’s intelligence.
Although listening to your body is easy and natural, we do not always know how to get the conversation started.
To begin, it is important to relax and slip into a receptive and attentive state. Get comfortable and close your eyes. Breathe a few deep relaxing breaths. Scan your body starting at the top of your head. Move your awareness down through your body and become aware of any place that is sore or tense or tight.
Once you become aware of an area of soreness, tension or tightness, ask these five questions to begin the dialogue.
~ If this area had a voice what would it be saying?
~ What is the emotional energy of this area?
~ What is the mental thought energy or beliefs and attitudes associated with this area?
~ What message does my spirit have for me concerning this area?
