Our Bodies holds more intelligence than we give credit to it.

Our bodies functions to we can be our best, however, sometimes we ignore its messages and drive ahead with what our minds tell us. Perhaps because we’re not taught from early on to pay attention to internal messages as well as external demands, we frequently ignore our body’s communications.

Instead of paying attention to our bodies signals, we will take the extra-strength aspirin headache instead of investigating the cause. We use more caffeine or sugar to give us a lift when we feel tired, rather than hearing our body’s message about needing rest or recognizing our fatigue as an early symptom of burnout we’d do well to heed. Or perhaps we’re so disconnected from the wisdom of our bodies that we have no idea what we really want to eat, reacting instead to the temptations that abound in our imagination and in the ads we see.

When we become friends with our body, it increases our self~esteem, self~worth and leads to thriving in other areas of our lives.

If you are ready to stop belittling,  berating, and doing a disservice to yourself, here’s a wonderful FREE source of suggestions/tips to take daily actions. Your Body ~ Your LifeTime Companion is a great way to start creating harmony between you and your body.

It takes practice and intention to tune into the body, to glean its wisdom.  One way would Practice Awareness. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing unless in the middle of something really intense, take a quick scan through your body.  Feel where it’s comfortable, where it’s tense and give it some attention. Check in with your body during the day to see if it’s getting what it’s needing.

Listening to the wisdom of our body supports us Thriving Whole~Heartily!!!

    Our bodies are definitely intelligent. I love the bible scripture that says that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made”.

    So true what you say about grabbing the aspirin for a headache without investigating the cause. I used to do that all the time until I started paying attention. Now I find a glass of water usually works and the headache is my body’s way of alerting me that I need more hydration.

    I learned this lesson myself many years ago. When I was feeling good, I would overdue all things in my life. I would be high, high, high and then I would crash again. When I finally hit the lowest you could go and people didn’t expect me to live, I slowly found my way to the healing modalities that ultimately helped transform and save my life. Listening to my body and spirit were the key.

    So often we ignore the little whispers our body is giving us, until it is screaming and we can no longer ignore it. Learning not to ignore the little whispers, is a good place to start tuning in to the subtle messages our body is always sending us.

    Aw, geez…this is so true. I’m trying hard to not just listen to my body, but be it’s friend. I’ve spent most of my life belittling it. Need to turn that around!
