Why is it so important to be in touch with this ability to sense your inner body? Because we, as a human race, have overdeveloped our thinking, knowing abilities to the point where many have lost the natural ability to ‘sense’ and experience the unseen world inside themselves. Many of those who come for a session with me are experiencing a lack of awareness of themselves due to compulsive thinking.
Eckhart Tolle talks about it – this mysterious inner body that I get asked about alot during sessions. Let’s take the mystery out of it right away -‘inner’ and ‘body’ are just two words that try to explain the experience of feeling and knowing where your body is in space.
Take your hand out in front of you. You can see it so you ‘know’ it’s there. Now close your eyes. You can’t see it anymore but you now have a ‘sense’ of it being there. Sensing and knowing are two different ways human beings experience themselves and the outside world.
Take 5 minutes every day to sit or lie comfortably with your eyes closed and notice how your body feels
- breath two conscious breaths and imagine them going all the way into your arms and legs as if your lungs extended across your whole body
- smile and let go of any thoughts that come up by sending your attention to a part of your body that feels quiet or numb or simple ‘not there’
You will be amazed at how quickly you regain this wonderful sense of your living, breathing inner body and how it improves your sense of well being and balance.
