Our culture has encouraged us to ignore the signals our body gives to us. We want a quick fix, and for our doctors and therapists to prescribe a pill to take the pain away. With body-informed wisdom, you can get to the root of your suffering by listening to your body’s messages instead of silencing them with substances.
When you tune into your body’s wisdom, you can gain more present moment awareness, becoming more aware, courageous, and connected. Once we can learn to validate our own internal emotional experience, we become less scared of our body’s messages.
The physical body has high intelligence, constantly sending us information. In Western society, we tend to ignore the signals being sent until there is a major medical issue. If we learn to quiet down and tune in, there is a lot we can learn.
Some of the symptoms of not being in tune with your body can look like:
- Mental/Physical fatigue
- Poor sleep routine
- Lack of motivation
- Being emotionally triggered without realizing the root cause
- Holding onto trauma and emotional wounds physically
- Feelings of stagnation in life
Learning to tap into your body’s wisdom is a beautiful process.
It involves turning your awareness inward and becoming the “observer” instead of a prisoner to your emotions and behaviors. You take back your power by engaging in preventative physical and mental health practices, like attending regular appointments, feeding your body nourishing foods, and moving as your body was intended to move.
