Here For You
Our bodies are constantly responding to our environments and circumstances seen and invisible, as well as to our perception of them. If we feel reasonably safe we are going to feel differently in our body than if we sense something is off. As our bodies respond to our environments they communicate a truth about what we are perceiving. For example, think about the sensory delight your body experiences when you encounter something you love, or in the other vein, the fear or disappointment you feel when you learn of someone you care for leaving your life.
Interpreting what our bodies are saying isn't always simple or straightforward. When there is conflict between what we are perceiving and what we think we ought to be or do about it or how we think we should feel about it, things get complicated. And information comes at us from all directions, like our past, our social location, present day events, and the impacts of the energetic realms. The clearer we are in where we stand both figuratively and literally, the simpler navigating the complexity of our human experiences becomes. Learning to be with our experience in our bodies and to turn towards it with curiosity is a path that enables us to make changes that support our wellbeing.
Coming into ourselves as we are in this moment takes reflection, consideration, the cultivation of self compassion, time, and practice. It is a practice. My job as I see it, is to help you cultivate the practice as it best supports you.
