Body Wisdom

144/365

When you get sick or injured, do you stop to wonder why? Not just whether you could have prevented it, but actually whether you’ve done something to contribute towards it?

After suffering from several bouts of the ‘flu in close succession, Gina decides to look at what might be causing this pattern of illness. Could there be other causes than just a virus or germs that could result in her body’s ability to cope with the stresses and strains of life?

Join Sam & Gina as they explore some of the ways in which our bodies communicate with us continuously, and how we can start listening to these messages of wisdom.

From releasing pent up emotions through crying, to noticing patterns/recurring issues and ways to start learning how to listen to what your body is trying to tell you – this journey of metaphysical meanderings will give you a few starting points to develop better awareness of your body and what illness and injury can tell us about ourselves.

I might not have been the sharpest tack in the building, but I was functioning.

However, there were times in the past when I perhaps didn’t rest; when I kept pushing myself through the things that needed doing and consequently spent weeks recovering from the serious infection that set in. Continue reading
