9 thoughts on “Feel with Your Whole Body

  1. Thank you for your words. I appreciated the thoughtfulness of the small quick guided meditation, and your connection to dance and moving the body. You offer some great ways to investigate our feelings and is something everyone can take away from the reading and incorporate it into their daily lives.
    Plus, the inhaling of breath is so important because it allows the body to release tension, and become grounded.
    LOVE IT!!!!

  2. Thanks for tying the mind-body connection tighter for me. I don’t use movement as feeling as a way to connect with my body. Exercise, sure. But it’s different. Thanks for the prompts on how to find a place to start and to use music as a tool to focus on my body’s feelings. And I felt that poem!

    1. Yes Ren! Exercise is a great way to be active and learn your body, but we often don’t allow it to connect us to the deeper feelings.

  3. Music has always been a way for black people to express how they feel and get the feelings out there to others. We have been using music to tell tales of slavery, history, love, rights and all the feelings in between. We are a musical people and using it as a instrument to relax is just another step on that road to recovery. Thank you for reminding me of this, especially in these times that are upon us now.

    1. Yes to all of this! We got rhythm and song intertwined in literally every part of ourselves, it’s deeply ingrained.

  4. Great information. These type of tools can be implemented for everyone. I’ve also found that animals are a good releaser. They can channel the peace. Animals aren’t engulfed with troubles we face.

    1. Absolutely Larry! Animals are great at sensing and improving our moods because they’re great listeners and help us get what we need, whether slowing down or get moving.

  5. Beautiful! There is nothing like breathing deep within, getting new life, and then, exhaling the worst parts of it. This story reminds me to take the time to breathe, renew one’s thoughts and to also exhale.

    Take a load off!

    And, that it’s okay to feel it, but it’s even better to process it until you reach resolve. Thank you for helping us to work things through to the end.
