Stop Trying to Figure it Out
Hola from Mexico.
I am in Cancun now, which is a big city on the Caribbean coast.
It’s so funny. I’ve been in Mexico just a little bit more than two weeks and I’ve already moved around the country three or four times. Apart from my first stopover in Mexico City, which was fine, for some reason or another, the other places have not been fun even though I had spent hours and hours on the computer, determined to make my next destination even better! I was trying to force it and figure this out!
But figuring it out never works. Here’s the thing. Figuring it out comes from our sweet heads and yet, my body was letting me know otherwise. The last place I stayed was so intense and my body was contracting and reacting so much that I couldn’t work like I planned. I scarcely did anything!
I finally asked my body, “Body, where would you like to be?” And I was surprised what I got. My body let me know that it wanted to be in a big city and so I chose Cancun. I found myself in a studio apartment and they made a mistake and wanted me to move. So I pulled a bit of energy and presto, they upgraded me and I’m now staying in this beautiful place!
So from now on, I’m committing to including my body when I’m choosing. So there’s no need for me to spend hours, figuring out where I’m going to stay. And I get that I have to acknowledge that at least part of me must love trying to figure it out because I’m always doing it and yet, it doesn’t create the most for where I’m choosing to stay.
I’m going to be asking these questions: “Hey body, where would you like to stay?” “Which place would you like to go to?” “Where would nurture you, sweet body?” and then I’ll listen to those whispers. And if you’re not used to listening to your body, don’t worry. Some of you know that my body moves when it’s trying to give me information. My sense is that my body started giving these big signals because I wasn’t listening to the whispers! So, you don’t have to have these big, full-on movements to have the information. You just have to listen and your sweet body will tell you in its own sweet way.
So what if we all can include our sweet bodies more?
Until next time have fun asking and listening to your bodies!
