Have you ever sat down, in silence for a minute, and listened to yourself? Does that seem like a really strange question? I don't mean listening to the mental chatter of the coulda, shoulda, woulda lists and worries that go around our heads. I am talking about a deeper listening. A listening to the messages from your body. What are your aches and pains really telling you? What is your gut instinct really telling you? Is your body shouting really loudly at you with a message but you're not listening?
Louise Hay says: "The body is always talking to you. What do you do when you get a message from your body, such as a little ache or pain? Usually, you run to the medicine cabinet or the drugstore and take a pill. In effect you say to the body, “Shut up! I don’t want to hear you. Don’t talk to me!” That is not loving the body. When you get the first ache or pain or the slightest thing seems to go wrong, sit down, close your eyes, and very quietly ask yourself, “What is it I need to know?” Listen a few minutes for the answer. It may be as simple as “Get some sleep.” Or it may be stronger."*
Take a couple of minutes today to listen to your body. Ask it for messages. Work with your body and it will help you achieve anyything you want.
