Listen to your own Rhythm- Part 1


It’s not just music that has rhythm our bodies have a rhythm too….

Today we are facing new shifts in the way women and men relate to one another, in the way we relate to ourselves. We are looking within our body for answers. Our rhythms start as simply as listening in to the sound of our in breath (so) and out breath (hum). Our heartbeat is a part of our rhythm too.

This blog is part of a series of three short posting encouraging you to look more deeply and journal your thoughts to the questions below. In part three there will be a meditation for you to use and contemplate.

I love this quote by Rumi, which to me sums up what this new shift is all about….

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it”

It is an exciting but scary thought to allow yourself to truly feel what is happening deeply within you. What you might find, is that there are layers to your feelings and if you allow yourself to observe the feelings you notice that there are layers underneath the initial feeling. This observation requires you to feel the feelings and not to try and cover them up or push them away when they come up. Feel what it is and ask yourself these questions. You might want to keep a journal and write down what comes up with each of these questions. The most important thing to remember is not to be critcal or reprimand yourself for anything you are feeling, simply honor your feeling in this moment.

  • Am I listening to my body and intuition?

  • What is it telling me?

  • Am I trying to follow what it is saying to me right now?

  • What’s changing?

  • What am I resisting ?

  • Am I aware of these changes?

It seems that as spiritual consciousness is changing we are moving back into an instinctual way of feeling and listening to ourselves. When I speak to people I hear them say this more and more. Sometimes people don’t understand what this shift is and can’t always put words to this feeling. People explain to me that they can feel changes in how their bodies react and how their minds seems to be adjusting "its" way of thinking. They noticed that how they processed those emotions were different from before.
