Believe in nothing, no matter who says it, even if I say it, if it does not agree with your own experience and your own common sense ~ Buddha

BodyTalk is really cool for people with an independent streak, or anyone who really understands how deeply problematic it is for people (even those with the best of intentions) to know at any given time what it is you need.

Why? Because of how I don’t decide what to do for you, your Innate does.

Innate is the name we give the “intelligence” that governs our autonomic responses — the part that handles homeostasis. What this means is that when I ‘treat’ you, I interact with something that has your highest good at heart, and if anyone does– will know exactly what you need.

From my side of things, this gives me a lot of trust in the process. It means that when something comes up, be it emotional, physical or spiritual, I am comfortable with handling it because Innate wouldn’t have brought it up if it didn’t think it had to be dealt with.

This, hopefully, gives you the same trust. You don’t have to worry about whether or not you can deal with it, or should deal with it; you don’t really have to think about it at all. You can just ride it out.

When you stop worrying about whether or not this is “right” — the right time, the right context, the right thing to be worrying about when there are so many other things on your mind — It’s really amazing how complex you are, and how much meaning you can mine from your sessions.

 

BodyTalk makes you more aware and conscious overall, and you begin to see your own progression. And where it takes you…

  2. It makes perfect sense, Monette. Too often, I think we focus on what’s outside ourselves to tell us how things ought to be, instead of just looking inside to see if it feels right

  3. […] but I will agree that it’s more a matter of semantics. I think I am more like a therapist. I simply ask your body what it would like to tell me, and it tells me what it would like to address. It also has surprising insight into what’s […]
