… we have another new contributor to the Women Gathering blog!
A warm welcome to Naomi Irons from New Glasgow, NS. In her own words:
I am a woman attempting to live life as a true expression of who I am; and a massage therapist on a journey using this profession as a platform to engage in conversations for self-healing by connecting to the body at a new level.
Motivated by her recent experience of Decloaking…and living authentically, Naomi’s enthusiasm for her own life and desire to engage with other women in finding theirs, has encouraged her to take that first step to put voice to her discoveries through the process of blogging. You can find Naomi’s blog on the Women Gathering Blogroll. Here’s an example of what you’ll find:
Allowing the Body to Lead
I had an experience yesterday that made me stop- and NOT think.
I was working with a colleague on a workshop we have coming up and I was trying to get my ‘point across’ to her about the WEL-Systems experience. I could see that she was struggling with it intellectually so I checked in with my body and then got her to lay down. From here I delivered the material in a meditative format and I could sense that she was allowing it to process.
During our discussion later she realized that when she was sitting up she felt like she was a student trying to analyze and make ‘sense’ of what I was saying. When she was laying down her body was metabolizing and processing the material at a cellular level. WOW! Once again I am reminded that the body does need to lead and the intellect need not get in the way!
No wonder I have NEVER felt comfortable delivering material to people’s intellect- for me now it is about allowing the body to process and then open it up to discussion about what arose for myself and others. The intellect cannot shut new ideas down when they are already rolling around in the body. Ask the question “what do I feel’ not ‘what do I think’!!! and the answer will come from the authentic source.
We look forward to more!
