Social Networking with Your Own Body

Everyone these days is connected to some type of social networking media but what type of tools do we have to connect to ourselves and our own body. Let's take a closer look on how we can be connected to the whispers from within.

So how can we start to social network with our own body? If you listen close enough your body is sending you little messages all day long about how its doing, how it feels, and what it needs to work best.
Your body is a sophisticated computer that never makes a mistake. No matter how involved you may be in day-to-day tasks, your heart never skips and beat and your lungs automatically expand and contract allowing oxygen to fill your body. Your body is constantly sending you little tweets and updates but are you tuned in and listening?

The language your body speaks are of sensations and symptoms. Each pain or ache is our body communicating with us. These messages are constant reminders for us to  stop and listen to what the body is trying to tell us. Unfortunately many of us are taught to ignore these messages or to simply override them. 

You can and should trust your body and one of the best ways to come into alignment with the body is through meditation, breathwork and yoga practice. By tunning into the breath you tune into the subtle energy of the body. When that happens you become very aware of how your body feels. If you take it a step further and infuse daily yoga poses connected to each inhalation and exhaltion you will open up the chakras (subtle energy points) in the body and release toxins. As you continue with your yoga, breathwork and meditation practices you will automatically be connected to the highspeed messages being sent from the master computer - your body.
Simple Ways to Stay Connected to Your Body:
1. Wake up early and get quiet with a meditation.
2. Take some long deep breaths with a holding of the breath and then full release.
3. Practice a simple yoga routine whether it is with a group class or on your own.
4. Take time everyday to commune with nature.
The aforementioned are some simple ways to stay connected to the super highway of social networking with your own body. Within a short period of time you'll be surprised how easy it is to repond appropriately to the whispered messages from your own body.
