Have you ever laid in bed first thing in the morning and felt all the sensations in your body? Or paused during the day to feel into what’s going on? That’s your body talking, and you are listening through feeling.
Listening to what’s being said layer by layer is like panning for gold. You doing even have to analyze what is being said to listen. Simply being present with feeling while breathing is a way of listening.
Pain tends to be the loudest as it sends alarm bells overwhelming the nervous system with a blanket experience. Breathe and dive in to find the unique subtle sensations localized within the overall ocean of pain…
…Spot in outer right hamstring throbbing.
…Throat dry and scratchy.
…Mouth steamy with breath, tongue seeping mucus, and throat scratchy.
…Mid back constricted, dull yet sharp sensations.
…Left upper arm sore and fatigued.
As each part is felt in its distinct expression, a song begins to play and breath begins to flow. A euphoria begins to build.
Pleasant sensations are now arising more potently than pain…
…Head expanding with lightness.
…Warm sensations of blood flowing through signaling you that your body is alive start to be felt.
…Heart beating like a drum.
…Tingling of the toes and fingers inviting a dance with what’s next.
The tummy rumbles ready for nourishment, but there’s no hurry. Motivating impulses muse around buzzing the brain’s action centers, but none hook you off center. The mind opens and relaxes into deep, loving conversation with the body fortifying what’s most important now. Embodied action arises with ease, grace, and harmony.
