What are the steps to take in order to listen to your body instead of outside influence? If you’re disconnected from your body, how can you reconnect with it? Learn more about intuitive eating as I tackle more questions on the topic and talk about the problems that women face when they try to eat intuitively.
Topics Discussed in this Episode:
- How to reconnect with your body
- The outside influences that create your belief system
- How outside information impacts your connection with your body and your intuition
- What it means to connect with your body or to use your intuitive sense
- What intuition means
- Following your ego versus following your intuition
- What it feels like when you’re fully using your intuition
- Why reconnecting with your body must be your number one priority
- We started from birth with an intuitive sense, but somewhere between 3 to 10 years old, we started losing that connection to our bodies because we started paying attention to outside influence.
- We lose that connection to our bodies as we become susceptible to outside information and then we let that create our belief system.
- When you’re taking in all that outside information, you’re using that to guide your life and your actions, and you’re basically cutting ties with your internal guidance system. You’re losing touch with what your body is communicating to you and what your intuition is telling you is the right path for you.
- Connecting with your body means being in touch with it. It means noticing and understanding what is going on with your body.
- Intuition is the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.
- One of the biggest things about following your intuition and connecting with your body is that sometimes it may push you to an uncomfortable place.
- The more information you gather from your physical body, the easier it will be to use your intuition to guide you through the next steps.
- Why reconnecting with your body is so important:
- Your body knows what is best for you.
- It is much less stressful and time-consuming when you know that what your body wants is what’s best for you.
- Trust, respect, and love for your body are non-negotiables to achieving the wellness you desire.
- You will continue to struggle until you reconnect with your body.
- Listen to your body and let it be your guiding force.
- Use your intuitive sense. Pay attention to what your body is telling you through what you feeling. Take stock of what you’re feeling, where you’re feeling it, how it feels, and why.
- Make a distinction between your ego and your intuition.
- Reconnect with your body:
- Do a body scan every day.
- Move your body mindfully.
- Practice self-care involving your body.
- Ask a lot of questions, starting with “What is best for me at this moment?” And wait for the answer that feels gentle and knowing. Do this 5 to 10 times a day.
- Journal about intuitive eating.
The next Empower Intensive live coaching call happens on Thursday, November 7th at 5 PM Mountain Standard Time. For this session, I’m going to be coaching you on self-sabotage so you can learn how to squash it and finally get what you want, so make sure to register. And if you can’t make it live, don’t worry! You can still listen to the recording.
“Just listen to your body and let that be your guiding force. Let that determine what you do, what you eat, how you sleep, what supplements you take, what doctor you see… Listen to your body.”
“Connecting with your body, yes, it does mean using your intuition. You cannot be in touch with your body until you have connected with your intuition.”
