Create something special . . .

(word 34)

Is it a YES ? or a YUCK ?

If you’re wondering how you really feel, check with your body. It is always honest.

To hear it, you have to know what it “sounds” like.

Find a quiet place. Sit up straight, feet on the floor, eyes closed and relax. Think of something you LOVE doing and imagine doing it. Include sensory information like sounds, smells, etc. Really be in it. Your body responds. Feel the sensations. Start at your head and work down to your toes. Identify the physical changes that occur. Put it on paper to remember.

Your body and its expressions are as unique as you are. This is what it does to communicate YES!

Now redo the exercise from the opposite direction. Martha Beck calls it the YUCK side. Focus your mind, eyes closed again, on something you absolutely despise doing. Do it in your imagination. Feel the sensations. Notice how specific body parts react. There is a definite opinion. This is how it says YUCK! Remember.

Your body wants to help you stay connected to your truth.

Let it.
