Bodies. They have a language of their own.
And those places that are tangled up and tight? They’re just talking a bit louder, reeeally wanting to be noticed, trying in their own way to be helpful. After all, few things get our attention like ow!
“Helpful, my ass!” you might be hrmmphing. “I’ve had this pain living in my neck for a month. Helpful?”
Or maybe it feels like an alien came and inserted a steel girder in your low back while you slept. Or maybe it’s your arms…
Owww! I’m sorry. And I’d love to help.
I am fascinated by the language of bodies. I listen to your body and we take it from there.
“Come again, you listen to bodies?”
Yes. I listen a lot with my hands. But also I listen with my eyes, ears, heart and mind.
The tight and tangled places in your body may feel like locked doors. So we start by knocking, so to speak. We say, “hello there.” And then we listen.
Invariably, something happens. Stuck and tangled places love to be noticed. And, not unlike people, they love to be met just as they are. From there, things happen, Baby! *she exclaims, rubbing hands together in anticipation*
Yes! Things like shifts. Like awareness. Recognition. A-ha’s. Or feelings we didn’t think we had. And change. Most definitely, change. Because change is the way of things. And when the what that is keeping things stuck is met with kindness and understanding, change can happen unimpeded.
Presence and touch smooth the way for change. And since listening is never about forcing anything, there is nothing for the tight places to push back against. Yay for non-violent change! And ease. Ahhh…
This stuff gets me crazy excited. Can you tell? Because, let’s face it: us and our bodies? You and yours? That’s an arranged partnership. For life.
So, how’s your partnership going? I love helping people feel at home inside themselves.
