Often the body already knows the answer to ‘difficult questions’, but we are distracted by our head. Just feel it. What does your body want to tell you? Do you perhaps have pain in your neck and shoulders? Or an uneasy feeling in your stomach? Suppose you take the time to really feel and listen. Perhaps this will help you with challenges like ‘What do I want – does this feel good?’. Does what I do match what I want?
There’s a good chance that you first started thinking about what you feel, about how you feel. People have become accustomed to naming their feelings or physical signals from their thinking. Switching off thinking is difficult. Difficult, because it can get in the way of good contact with your body. And you know? Your body doesn’t lie. Your body is always looking for equilibrium for us, for balance. But sometimes you forget to listen to your body. Or maybe you really don’t know how to listen to your body anymore. What does it say now?
For years I followed the beaten path. I was going for a successful fast career, but I had an indeterminate feeling. Maybe you recognize that. That indefinable feeling. Or do you get up every day tired or with a heavy feeling? Maybe you have problems with your stomach, stomach or intestines. Or do you feel tension in your neck and shoulder, or in your lower back. Do you recognize these complaints? Maybe not all but some? Maybe you have strayed from your path, from your deepest heart’s desire. From your intuition.
Intuition is inner knowledge, the totality of human capabilities in addition to the rational. Everyone has intuition, but not everyone is aware of it. Intuition can help you make choices in work, health and a happy life. That is why it is important to understand your body’s signals and to really feel them. This way you can use the wisdom of your body to give direction to your life. Unfortunately it works the same way the other way around; By not picking up on your body’s signals or by thinking all the time, you become further away from your intuition. You can find your way back by starting to feel.
You could already do this as a child, because children are very good at following their intuition. But somewhere along the way to adulthood, many people unfortunately lose this ability. Perhaps you could follow your own child’s example?
You can trust your body and intuition more. From there you can make more conscious choices. Your body as a compass, as a direction.
