April 2019 - Self-Embodiment
How often do we think about our bodies?
We respond to the obvious signals to eat, drink, and sleep, but otherwise, we often go through our daily lives living only in our head. We're list-making, planning, evaluating, and thinking. While these mental activities are necessary, they would be further supported by dropping in to our bodies and feeling what it feels like to be in the flesh we occupy.
When we're not in-tune with our body, we miss the more subtle signals it sends. Your body may be telling you that you need rest. Or movement. Or a bigger change of some kind. This month I invite you to pause and allow yourself to truly BE in your body and see what you (and it) needs.
