The mind lies, but the body never does. The way our minds lie for instance when we are tired, we can override the fatigue by drinking caffeine to stay up. Another way our minds can lie is that when we feel tightness in our neck or shoulders, we can tell ourselves we do not feel the pain and pretty soon, “voila,” poof the pain disappears. It never disappears, all we have done is disconnect from our bodies ignoring the tightness and pain.
Our body constantly gives us many signals for us to become aware. The 3 things that we can trust with our body is first our breath, second is touch, and the third is movement. When we are either scared, angry or upset our natural instinct is to hold our breath and stop breathing. The sensation of touch never lies and we know how it feels when someone that we love or loves us gives us a hug or places their hands on us, we just melt and never want to lose that connection. The worse type of touch is when we get one of those fake hugs where there is no energy or sincerity in the hug that we receive. The last is movement never lies. When someone is in pain, their movement is labored; when a child is happy, we can feel their excitement and energy.
