A big part of the healing journey is learning how to connect with your body again. Self-compassion is a good example. It’s the practice of becoming aware of what’s going on in your body, so you can experience what it feels like to be loving and kind to yourself.
Mindfulness is not a head thing. You feel what’s happening in the present moment in your body and in your heart. Not in your head.
Here’s what I mean. You feel worries about the future and bad memories from the past in your body first. Being connected to your body through mindfulness instantly alerts you that this is happening. That gives you the opportunity to remind yourself the past is over, and no one has any control over the future. Through mindfulness you can let go of these negative emotions and worries rather than repress them.
Your body’s awareness is actually faster than your mind. For example, you feel the energy shift in a room, situation, or conversation in your body first. Then your mind becomes aware of it. This is also true of good and bad thoughts, memories, and every emotion.
When you reconnect with your body through mindfulness, you’re no longer at the mercy of every stray thought, memory, or emotion. You’ll know the instant your body senses something, which gives you the opportunity to choose what you want to think and feel at that moment.
Reconnecting to your body through mindfulness expands every area of your awareness. Suddenly, you can see how your life experiences made you the awesome, compassionate person that you are today. You can see how all of this, the good and the bad, brought you to this present moment in time.
When you see the “big picture” through the peace and calm of mindfulness, you can’t help feeling grateful for the gift you’ve become. And that’s exactly what you are. A precious gift!
