Your body is a marvelous vehicle for attunement to your inner self.
It carries you through your day, connecting you to the outer world of sensations, alerting you to its needs and reminding you of your physical connection with the world.
There is also another level of information that your body makes available to you. Your body can provide you inner direction, acting as a kind of attunement device between the external world and your inner environment. As you develop this attunement, you can make decisions that are more in harmony with what you truly want. By attending to the information your body makes available, you can develop inner discernment.
Discernment allows you to discover the truth in all of your daily life situations.
You can learn how to pay attention. Start by creating moments through your day, where you deliberately “check-in” with yourself. Take a few moments of quiet to scan your body, noticing how it feels, without any judgment.
With attention you build attunement. It is the beginning of discernment.
What an incredible opportunity!
Take a breath. Release it. Take another. Devote some dedicated time of concentration/meditation. It doesn’t need to be hours of quiet, perhaps only 15 minutes. Then allow the question to simmer within you through the weekend. Let responses bubble up into your awareness. Notice new ways of thinking, of images or ideas that arise spontaneously. Pay attention to your dreams. Let it happen. Be aware. See where it leads you next. Let yourself savor this process of receiving from yourself. Don’t judge whatever comes up, just receive it. Make notes.
You may want to share something from this process. Sharing can be an important way to anchor an insight in your body. It can lead you to deeper insight. It can stimulate action. Feel free to use this arena to share what moves you.
