Recently I’ve been talking to my sister-in-law about something she firmly believes in, “Body Talk”. It got me thinking, maybe I should try this and see how it goes? I had my 1st session last week here in Saskatoon …. I had mixed feelings (but good ones). It was useful, informative, relaxing, and kind of eery how exact it was.
Body Talk is a non-invasive technique that helps stimulate the bodies own ability to heal itself. As most of you know, I recently went off my medication (by choice) and I’m not saying that ANYTHING I try will CURE ME … but why not help me feel like I’m doing something productive?
My Body Talk session involved me laying there for about an hour while the practitioner asked my body questions, and my body responded in different answers. It was amazing that my body was providing answers to questions when my mind was in a completely different world. Not only that, my body responded in ways I didn’t think I felt (which was amazing to me). It gave me a bit more insight into why I am the way I am, how I deal with problems and issues, and my body told her that I was “ready” to start healing myself, I just had to let it.
Call it what you want – call it voodoo, call it crazy, but I felt amazing when I was done. The reason I chose to go off my medicine; I truly felt that my body was ready to be “clean” and have control and I could do this. That’s not to say I won’t get sick ever again, I’m sure I will – but my mind was ready to start taking control. I guess my body started talking to me long before, I just had to start listening to what it was saying …
