Listening to your Body

February 14, 2014

Tonight I am supposed to be at my new job but I appear to be here, at my computer writing this blog post. My hands are warm, my crown (at the top of my head) is tingling, my chest feels open and my feet are pulsating with energy. This morning, before I called in sick for my new job (which now appears to be my old job even before it had begun) my feet were frozen, my chest was tight, hands cold, crown dead, kidneys so painful I was considering going to the doctors for some antibiotics and my anxiety levels were a seven out of ten.

What was going on?

I had made the wrong choices and my body was shouting at me so that I would listen to it.

I listened. I dropped the ‘shit but I need the money’ I left behind my childhood dream of working in the spotlight (an aspect of the new/old job) and immediately upon cancelling my shift – I felt healthy again.

Our bodies are the only link we have to that part of ourselves that knows exactly what we need to be doing and when we need to be doing it. When we disembody, that link disconnects and thus we not only become mentally confused but we can experience all kinds of genuine physical and medical problems. Our system has malfunctioned. What do we do with a crashing computer? We re-boot it.

I re-booted.

I feel better.

Now…. listening to your body has other benefits and considering that some posts of late have been about sex and sexuality, this would be a great opportunity for me to link this all together but I’m not going to. You already did that, just a moment ago – did you feel it?


Until Next Time,

Matt 🙂
