    We Now Interrupt this Regularly Scheduled Program

    If you have been hanging out with me since the first of the year, you might be expecting a post for This Sense-sational Life today. Or perhaps some words of wisdom from the Body Wisdom Project.  Well, I have a Sense that I am coming down with a little something, so I am going to listen to my body’s wisdom and tuck in for a bit of self-care. In the meantime, please enjoy this Full Moon Meditation I was saving for a rainy day….or if you have been anywhere around my neck of the woods, you will know I was saving it for a super windy day!

    Love of Massage

    Falling in Love with Massage Before I ever had a massage, I knew I wanted to love it.  I didn’t know why I needed massage in my life, I just knew I did.  The first time I had a massage, I went because I was ALL knotted up, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  Massage doesn’t just work with the physical body. It also has the ability to touch the emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. I have always been a sensitive person. As a child, I cried easily.  My feelings were delicate.

    Body Wisdom Project {Listen}

    A few days ago I picked up an old journal. Inside I found an entry about wanting to pay closer attention to my body and promises that I would practice more self-care. The shift in my relationship with my body from that time to this is quite apparent.  Self-care one of my personal core values.  But, I crave a connection that is even deeper. I crave more peace, less doubt. I crave a level of understanding and interaction that can only come from a practice of listening to the wisdom my body offers. This idea isn’t new to me.

    Choosing this Moment

    Most of us say to ourselves, “I want to be more creative. I want to do more art.” Today is in front of you. This moment is begging for you to choose IT, shouting, “Pick me. Pick me.” And when you do, you are really picking yourself. It is just that simple.
