Your Body Never Lies

Today I was feeling tired.

When we are tired, we have to make a choice, to push through or rest. For me in the past sometimes being tired would show up as a form of resistance or a sign that I was not protecting my energy. I would “rest” and not get a lot done.

Today I had to stop and ask myself where the tiredness was coming from.

When we feel tired, depleted, or exhausted, it’s useful to take the time to check-in with our own energy.

The body is always sending us messages. When we listen we can get a better sense of what is really going on for us.

My body was talking to me loud and clear. Turns out, I was wiped out from taking lots of lots of action. Action can be a good thing, especially when we are building something. But too much action, or not the right action can be counter productive.

I knew rest was what I needed. BUT, I wanted to push through. I was attached to writing an article. So, I kept working. Writing three different articles that did not come out as I liked.

If I’d listened to my initial instinct, I would have saved myself hours of frustration when the words would not flow and put the pen down.

Shifting gears, I checked in with my body. I listened. I finally put my pen aside. I sat for a few moments and pulled an Angel card as a way to relax and connect. I asked for a card that would benefit my article, myself and my peeps.

“REST” showed up.

Ironic I thought. Just want I DO NOT want to do right now. However, it was the perfect reminder for me to honor my inner wisdom and not my ego. I needed to take a break. After I took one, it was so much easier to write.

Check in with your body

The body never lies. It holds the truth and answers we need if we are willing to slow down and listen to it. Mine kept telling me to rest. I ignored it until I slowed down and checked in.

Rest was affirmed with this message from my Angels today. How cool is that? But there are simpler, direct ways to check in with yourself.

Reflection question: Do you rest or push through when tired? Does it depend on the situation?

Do you honor the signals your inner wisdom your body sends you?

Don’t know how? I can guide you.
