Natural wisdom prompts me to take a nap in the afternoon because I’m tired. My body, made up of trillions of cells, has the ability to create, recycle, learn, improvise, heal, and inspire. All that is required of this inhabitant, known to me as “myself,” is to listen, feel and follow.
Natural wisdom is simple and available to everyone. It is there in every breath, all that is required is attention to it and the guts to follow it. Totally free and available, yet no one can give it to you.
Following natural wisdom has become a challenge for many of us steeped in western values. Western society produces research on mind blowing “new” realizations about the benefits of taking a walk, being happy, meditating, eating a fresh apple, allowing employees some creative license, letting children play without a schedule, allowing pets in nursing homes, holding infants, massaging elders, calling medical patients by name, and allowing sunlight in office buildings. Western science is also contemplating the notion that emotions and physical health may be linked.
Take a moment to consider these research ideas and how they influence your confidence in your own knowing.
Listen to the call, urges, feelings of your body and cells, your heart speaking directly to you about your life. If you allowed yourself to respect your voice above all others what would happen? What choices about your life, your daily habits, and your way of living would you pursue?
