In my last blog post I talked about the 5 different “bodies” we have and how using them for a framework can help you make quick changes when you are struggling (let’s be real, this past year, we’ve each struggled in some way!) so you can go back to your life, business, and relationships with energy and peace.
For a review, they are:
Physical body --this is the one we live in, the skin, bones, and everything else.
Emotional Body--this is the body we FEEL in. It’s the level at which we experience and store many emotions — happy, sad, guilty, or fearful.
Energetic Body-- this is the body of subtle energy flows—think along the lines of meridians and chakras (energy centers).
Mental Body-- this is our mind ~ what you think, believe, value, how you perceive yourself and the world.
Spiritual Body--this is your soul ~ the connection to God, Universe, or whichever higher being that you believe in.
I said I’d share some questions you...
As life continues to shift and change and stress levels are at all time highs for most people I wanted to write this email to share something my clients are finding incredibly helpful in managing their stress.
When we are struggling in life, there is never just “one” thing that is the cause.
It is typically a variety of things but sometimes we don’t know where to start to find the answers.
A while back I read about the 5 Bodies framework (I can’t remember where, otherwise I’d totally give it credit) and have been sharing it with everyone.
This framework has been a game-changer in making it easy for my clients to create change for themselves (I'll share with you how my client Laurie used it to take back control of her life in a minute!)
The basic gist of it is that we have 5 different “bodies.”
We all know about our Physical body (this is the one we live in, the skin, bones, and everything...
“I want to die”
These were the exact words I thought in December of 2005.
I recently quit my first job as a therapist at a group home for adolescent girls.
My lease was up on the house I was renting and since I quit my job and didn’t know what I was going to do, I moved back in with my parents (God bless them for letting me move back in!).
I had ZERO ideas about what I wanted to do with my life.AND, even though I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes, I was eating every sugary thing in site ~ it was the holiday season after all, isn’t that what you are supposed to do???
I got to a point where I literally could not get out of bed ~ my body felt as if it had cement running slugging through it.
Each morning I woke up even more exhausted than I did when I went to bed.
To say that I felt pretty sh*tty would be an understatement.
Ok, I do know that this was a 1st world problem and others have had way sh*ttier experiences…And, this was my reality and wanting to die...
