Do you have a tendency to think about your challenges? Do you play them repeatedly in your head, making them seem bigger and more difficult to move through?
Our optimal solutions aren’t typically born from that low vibration. Meaning the solutions we come up with when we’re frustrated will have the same energy as the challenge. That energy doesn’t feel good.
What I’ve found is that if I take a few moments and a few deep breaths and put my hand on my heart that I feel different. I feel calmer. I am feeling instead of thinking.
I have taken my attention from my head thinking to my heart feeling.
Did you ever notice that when you’re deep in thought your hand is often on your forehead. If you’re talking about feeling something, your hand often automatically goes to your heart.
We need both logic and feelings to maneuver through life’s challenges. We just don’t want to get so caught up in either one that we make decisions that aren’t the best for us.
I have found it life changing to be present in my body.
When we’re present, we can understand what our body is telling us. Our body holds great wisdom for us to access. It can guide us to our truths and what is right for us, when we pay attention to it.
Our body can process energy faster than our brain can tell us what’s going on. Have you ever had a sense that something wasn’t right when you walked into a room or with someone you just met? Pay close attention next time that happens, and you’ll realize that your body tells you first with sensations, you’ll feel it in your stomach or chest. You may not know what’s going on, but you know to be alert that something is.
Next time you have a decision to make or need clarity about something, close your eyes, put your hand on your heart, take a few deep breaths, and be present to what your body tells you. The more you practice, the more natural it becomes.
When we change the world changes.
