Most of us are not taught to be present in our OWN bodies, much less being present for others. We don’t realize the power our presence and deep listening has for not only our own healing, but also for the healing of others.
Have you ever been triggered by something that happened or something someone said? …Or ruminated over and over about something that was bothering you, unable to just let it go?
I was recently speaking at an osteopathic medicine conference in California. One of the presenters from Italy shared about the natural processes of the body to release trauma.
Today I had an amazing Skype session with a client who has been dealing with what her doctor calls “reactive arthritis.” She’s living in severe pain and fearing what might happen over the next 10 years.
The biggest thing that prevents us from maintaining a sense of harmony, peace, and wellbeing is FEAR. Fear is that sense in the body that tells us: “There’s something wrong! Stop! It’s not okay!”
One of the biggest ways I see people get stuck when applying MindBody Medicine is that they’re trying to use the mind to heal the body. Tricky stuff!
