The art of connecting with your body to create alignment

Hi there,

In this blogpost I would like to talk about the importance of connecting with our body. Not just plainly our physical body with its anatomy, but our body as an entrance to our psyche using it as an instrument to experience our feelings rather then dealing with feelings with our minds.

First I would like to check with you the following: "How much are you aware of what you are feeling in this moment in your body?" 

If you can grab a chair, and sit straight with your feet on the floor, then close your eyes to shut down the impressions from the outside world and I invite you to pay attention to your breathing.

You do not need to relax or become serious. Just close your eyes, pay attention to your breathing without wanting to change it. Follow the natural flow of your breath and give yourself a few minutes to sink in and connect with your body.

My learning through cancer: Being present in my life

 I believe that every experience in life can teach us something. Even something like cancer. I am inquisitive, an explorer and I like to look for meaning in everything that happens to myself and others. I don’t do it in a very analytical way, but I let my intuition tell me what is happening. The same for an illness like cancer.

I was diagnosed the 17th of April 2015 with lymphatic cancer. The specialist told me that I had a lymphatic node that was transformed in a tumor of 10 centimeters in my chest behind the heart which was causing all the strange symptoms I was suffering.

Addressing Feelings to create Wellbeing at work

We all feel overwhelmed once in a while at work with what many call "negative" feelings. Sadness, anger, frustration, loneliness, fear are all part of the inner world and are normal and very human. What we have learned is to supress and deny them and our connection with these feelings is negative, not the feeling itself.

We all want to feel happy, creative and inspired but once we start denying part of our feelings we also are not able to feel the "positive" feelings. How would it be to change our perception about certain feelings and start to experience them? Consider these feelings like friends. Because these "energies" are part of us and it is a bit strange to deny part of ourselves right?
