It is time for you to remember your body’s innate freedom and wisdom. This may be a way-out-there thought, and if you do not believe it, don’t worry. You are not alone. We do not believe it to be true because we have not experienced it to be so. We do not know how to access this deep knowing. I believe we can use our bodies as teachers to access this innate knowing. Are you choosing to find answers from your body? I am here to remind you that your body holds the answer you seek. It is instructing you to open your heart and open the flood gates to your breath. The guide you are longing to meet resides in your body. Start there, and later, you will be able to follow the same process without a body and a spirit. Your body is the container to your soul. Try using your body as the doorway to your soul. Here are some easy tools to add to your spiritual practices to get you started.
Deep Feeling -3 minutes exercise
Take three deep breaths and let your breath fall out of your mouth. Sitting, notice how you are sitting. Do not change or judge your sitting unless you would like to. Place your hands on your legs and feel the sensation of your own legs. Set a timer for 3 minutes. Simply feel your whole body sitting for three minutes. What sensations did you feel? What sensations did you not feel? How may those sensations inform my day today?
