When I speak (or write) my truth or when I’m offering words for others (friends, clients, etc.), I can feel my body shaking, my throat clenching and a radiating energy moving often from my throat towards my third eye.
When I first noticed this combination of sensations, I mistook it for my body warning me. I thought maybe I was saying the wrong thing and felt fear and doubt. It is not comfortable and often comes on suddenly like a wave. And when it is over, it leaves me like a wave returning to the sea.
I wonder, if as a child, I felt this and stopped saying things that would bring up these feelings because it was uncomfortable and I didn’t know what they were. I didn’t have anyone to tell me that truth could feel this way. Perhaps I shut down my truth out of that fear and unawareness.
Now, every time I feel that way, I consider it such a gift. How amazing is it that my body is signaling to me that something I am saying is so important? How amazing is it that I receive affirmation that I am on the right path?
Have you taken notice of your body’s sensations? How does your body feel when you say certain things?
A daily practice challenges the person who creates on “inspiration.” We have to mother everyday, and ultimately, it is the daily grind that gives us perspective, clarity and the “high’s” of motherhood. I am exploring if the same happens when I write everyday on the topics that normally light me up – motherhood, self-development, healing and creating.
