Access your intuition and make better decisions: Your body holds all the answers you need

We’ve been taught to treat our bodies like ongoing projects, regardless of gender. In this episode, I talk about releasing this programming and embracing a different approach. Our bodies hold wisdom that can guide us in making decisions, leading us to the right choices faster and more accurately.

The challenge? We’ve been conditioned to disregard the messages our body sends us. But when we start paying attention, we begin to recognize our profound connection with ourselves, our ancestors, and the Earth. Our bodies are the gateway to understanding the vast support network surrounding us.

I offer several techniques for weaving the body into your decision-making process. These exercises help you engage your senses and connect with your body’s intuition. Your body acts as a dowsing rod, guiding beyond what your brain may perceive to make aligned choices.

Your body holds all the answers you need. It’s time to trust its wisdom and honor your profound connection with yourself, your ancestors, and the world around you. I show you how.

Everything you need to know is in your body.

So we’ve been taught to treat our bodies, especially if we identify as female or came in with female parts. There’s a lot of messaging around treating our bodies like ongoing projects. I find that this is less and less of a gendered conversation. We’re all getting these messages around eating to look a certain way, or what have you, right? 

That’s not what this episode is about. What it’s about is releasing that programming and exchanging it for a different approach to this sacred vessel. To what Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes is the author of Women Who Run with the Wolves, which she would call your divine consort, your loyal consort, right? 

Our bodies are with us from first breath to last breath. They stick with us no matter how we treat them, until we treat them beyond repair.

The reason why I say that is because we’ll often treat our bodies in ways that we wouldn’t treat a child or our best friend, you know? We’ll have to pee, and we’ll make ourselves wait because we’re busy right now. Or I’m hungry, but I got this other thing. 

We delay our own pleasure. We put work in front of joy rather than finding where those things can intersect. And the list goes on, right? I mean, just think about today. How many times did your body have an impulse that you resisted? Like to take a nap. Or oh, it’s so beautiful out. Just take a little walk… No, there’s no time for that! 

So we have this push-pull with our bodies, right? And what I am such a champion for and what I’m here to remind us about today is how our bodies are our loyal consorts, loyal beyond measure from first to last breath. Our bodies hold the wisdom of all who have come before us. In our bones, in our blood, is the DNA of our ancestors. And it’s this signature, right? That is different from anyone else on the planet. These tiny, tiny differences. 

The way that we’re connected in this very structural way in the very body that we inhabit is so profound because I find that, very often, when we’re trying to make a decision, when we have questions, we go here (the head or mind). I call this our little brain. Your body is your big brain. This is where the answers are, my friends. The real answers, the “I’m not gonna lie to you” answers, right? 

Because our brain will say, here’s the strategic thing to do. Our heart will say, if you’re anything like me, and you’re a nurturer, a caretaker, one of my ongoing areas for growth and improvement is boundaries, taking care of myself at the same time I take care of others. That’s why I became such a master at boundaries because I had to! Because [before] I was like, let’s give it all the way and the shirt off my back and more energy than I have and more money than I have… So there was a lot of that to unlearn and restructure so that I could be a functioning person who didn’t have to struggle. 

Thanks for joining me on Wise Body, Ancient Soul. I hope it reminds you how powerful and magical you truly are. If you’re looking to connect more deeply with the wisdom your body and soul carry, it would be my honor to guide you.
