Word for February: WARM
“Warm” is one of those words you feel in your body. Actually, we “feel” every word in our body, but most of the time we don’t notice. Warm is one of those obvious ones.
When I was little and freezing in New Jersey, I used to imagine being in bright sunshine sweating, and I’d stop shivering. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was using words to change my body sensations. To feel more comfortable.
Close your eyes and think “warm.” Notice what happens in your body. For me, my chest heats up, my breathing slows, my face relaxes. My body has these sensations because of the word… and the attached thoughts I have to the word. Thoughts based on my history and my chosen interpretation of that history.
To test, think of the word “cold” and notice the difference. Sometimes body responses are subtle and hard to pick up. Other times they are BIG and obvious. Like a stomach ache. Depends on the intensity of the thoughts.
A few more to try . . .
Words always produce specific, physical sensations. These are what we use to describe “our feelings.” Good to know. In case we want to feel differently.
