By connecting with our body wisdom, we can break free from self-sabotaging patterns, align ourselves with our authentic truth, and cultivate a sense of empowerment that flows into every aspect of our lives.
The way to do that is through embodiment.
At least, embodiment is the best way that I know of to embrace your authentic self and come back to wholeness for a more vibrant and fulfilling life.
Embodiment is not just about practising yoga, dancing, doing tai chi, or meditation; although all of these have elements of embodiment to them.
My definition is embodiment is being in contact with the full experience of yourself. It is to inhabit your being, and embrace the truth of who you are. It’s a daily practice, a skill that we learn to align ourselves with a more fulfilling and richer way of living.
Cultivating Sensitivity: The First Principle
Tapping into body wisdom begins with cultivating sensitivity, allowing yourself to feel deeply and connect with your sensations and emotions. By paying attention to the currents of aliveness within you, you can start to liberate frozen tension and tap into your own nervous system. This helps you understand yourself better and allows you to experience more pleasure and fulfilment in life.
Learning the Language of Your Body: The Second Principle
For many of us, it can be very painful to be in our bodies. And then, our world encourages us to “get on with it” and learn to live with the discomfort. And so, we often talk about our feelings, but there’s a difference between talking about them and being in the feeling of them. Learning the language of your body means delving into your unique constellation of feelings and sensations. By staying present with these emotions and sensations, you gain valuable insights and to tapping into body wisdom can guide your decisions and actions.
Embrace All Aspects of Yourself: The Third Principle
In the practice of embodying yourself, you begin to embrace all aspects of who you are. This includes the shadows, chaos, and unknown parts. Rejecting certain aspects of ourselves can lead to self-judgment, self-sabotage, and a feeling of being incomplete. Embrace the wholeness of who you are, and you’ll experience a deeper connection and self-love that can positively impact all areas of your life.
Deepen the Trust in Yourself: The Fourth Principle
Developing trust in yourself is essential for embodying your authentic self. Learn to listen to your inner guidance, trust your intuition, and make decisions aligned with your true desires and values. By doing so, you can move through life with confidence and authenticity. This will ask of you to be with the discomfort of moving away from always looking to external sources for guidance.
Living as Your Authentic Self: The Fifth Principle
Living as the truest version of yourself means embracing your authentic essence in this moment, not striving for a future version of yourself. We often hold the disembodiment fallacy of only accepting ourselves once we have attained certain conditions (ideal weight, controlled emotions, loving relationship, fulfilling job). I believe that when we are able to be with ourselves where we are right now, it leads to acceptance and fulfilment.
