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?
