Listening To Your Body = Best Life

Monday, August 6, 2012 | Return To List

Sure most people ate margarine because they were told it was better for them. But there were many who felt strongly within themselves that they would never touch the stuff in a million years. Later we learned the horrors of trans fats, "The Darth Vader of processed foods"*, which countries like Denmark and Australia banned after finding links to blindness among other things.

The important question here is why do some people and animals know what not to take into their bodies while others of us are clueless? The answer is connecting to your felt sense. Feeling in your body how you think, feel, look, sleep and digest food or anything in life after you partake in it. One exercise I teach in my workshops is to stand and shake the same leg for a minute and vigorously at the end. Then stand on both feet and feel the difference in both legs and feet. The shaken foot will feel lighter, flatter, more connected to the floor and sure footed. There are many practices to connect to your inner guidance and felt sense. Generally, if something makes you feel expanded, excited, easier to breath and makes common sense, it enlivens you, go for it. If on the other hand a potential business partner, person or choice makes you feel constricted and it seems heavy and harder to breath, this blocks your mojo, don't do it. In the middle east people would be sent to smell a potential bride, to see if she smelled angry. Our unconscious mind picks up so many cues. Taking the time to tune in and really feel out both sides of an important decision can save you tons of time and money in the long run.

Remember I am not a nutritionist.  Do your own research, check it out and check with your doctor.
