Sometimes we can get so entangled in thoughts that we can actually forget that we have a body. In being too caught up in thoughts, we may miss the signals and signs our body gives us to let us know that it needs attention. In this meditation, Deanna has us drop into our body for a time giving us some space from the endless thoughts that can consume our mind.
Getting comfortable, releasing any tension in my face, jaw and shoulders, I dropped my mind into my body and settled my awareness on feeling this body from the inside out. Inside, I felt my heartbeat pumping blood to all of my organs via arteries and veins. Outside, I felt the pressure of my butt sitting on this chair and my feet on the ground. I experienced how it felt to feel skin on skin by feeling my hands on my thighs. Dropping in and feeling embodiment, I have taken a break from my thoughts and have gained a sense of aliveness.
Taking some time to drop in and feel embodiment is vital to our overall well-being. It not only gives us some time away from our thoughts, which gives us clarity and a new perspective on things, it also gives us some time to appreciate our body and all that it does to keep us alive. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
