Trusting What I Feel

Thanks to the support of Universal Medicine, the teachings presented by Serge Benhayon and the various esoteric modalities, I have begun to trust more deeply what I feel, and be less caught up in needing life and my daily tasks to be a certain way. Hooray!

This was clearly demonstrated to me on a morning walk today.

Before setting foot out the door I had felt the direction I wanted to walk, which was great. I chose to carry a water bottle and not complain to myself that the water bottle was going to ‘get in the way’ or ‘be a burden on my walk’ as I knew I would need to hydrate. I did also get a little caught up planning the walk – where I would go, which nice areas I wanted to visit again from my walk the evening before, how far I would travel… etc!!

As I started to walk, I could feel a drive and distraction in trying to plan steps ahead of where I was… then I simply chose to come back to me. The difference when I stopped thinking about the future result and chose to feel my feet and body as I walked was profound. I stopped to pause and stretch while walking up a large number of stairs and felt no need to rush. My chest felt open and warm and I was able to see more of what was around me than if I was stuck in my mind, focussed on where I was getting to.

When I reached the street where my plan had been to go left, it clearly did not feel right – everything in my body felt to turn the other way down a ‘no through’ road. I at first denied this, but as I started to walk my body felt restricted, without the openness and warmth I had felt moments before. So I turned around and trusted my feelings. Where I had previously hesitated because, “What if the road goes nowhere and I just have to turn around and come back again?,” I chose to make the walk about the quality of my movement and that this was already enough without needing where I was walking to satisfy me.

The street I walked down was not anything I could have imagined or planned. It took me past a beauty-full vibrant and colourful bed of flowers, and at the end of the street, to a small patch of remnant vegetation by the river with a walking track and undercover seating. A tranquil haven all within ten minutes from my home, which if I had not honoured what I felt, I would never have known was there!

So often I have sought to prepare myself, to plan ahead while dismissing to care for and listen to myself, and what my body needs right in that moment. What I am realising is that this old way seeks to control the outcome and robs me of the preciousness of simply being with me and the beauty that abounds when I support myself to be connected, and to trust and be open to receive.

With much gratitude to the various esoteric modalities for sharing the simplicity of being with and caring for our bodies in movement and daily activity! Thank you!

  1. I appreciate the moments to allow for planning and moments to simply go with flow and feel. They both have their place in life and in accepting both, it is a greater acceptance of myself.

    1. Allowing my body to lead the way is fun, joyful and easy. But I don’t do this all the time because I have been so used to letting my thoughts and mind lead the way, sometimes it feels easier to do what I am used to, but as a result this is not always fun.

  2. When we do begin to surrender and allow ourselves to be guided by the truth in our bodies, we realise there is a whole other way of being to discover, one that is impulsed by our Soul and supports us to move in connection to our divine essence.

  3. Through feeling all my feelings I am allowing myself to be aware of the bigger picture that is occurring both within and around me.

  4. Could it be possible we lose our-self when we reinterpret words from their True energetic meaning? As when we look up “rush” the Latin meaning of rush we get; “stir up, disturb; discharge/hurl (missile); flow rapidly/strong current; rush; “rush; urge/rouse/agitate; enrage/inflame; spur/impel; summon/assemble; cause; jump/leap (up/on/towards), rush/dash (at/against), assault; mount (male-female);” Understanding the true energetic meaning of words will give a deeper understanding of how we get imposed upon, the “old way seeks to control the outcome and robs me of the preciousness of simply being with me and the beauty that abounds when I support myself to be connected, and to trust and be open to receive.” Our expression is so powerful and we can all learn about language and the way words have an energetic Truth.

    1. Our mind loves to complicate and control things but when we listen to the body, we just know what the next step is and if we act on it life just flows.

  5. Thanks, Susan. I still find myself resorting to the mind rather than trusting what my body is telling me, but it is getting less and less, and when I do listen, my inner knowing is staggeringly spot on.

    1. I agree, I find when I try to plan ahead I get focussed on a certain picture or outcome and so am not open to other possibilities and so negate my Soul and arrogantly thinking I know better and so not allowing a flow with what is next.

  6. Susan, I can relate to this feeling; ‘As I started to walk, I could feel a drive and distraction in trying to plan steps ahead of where I was… then I simply chose to come back to me’, I had an experience recently where I realised that I was often walking to get somewhere and that I would be focussed on where I was going rather than with me and so I bought the focus back to me and to my every step, this felt very simple and beautiful and my walk had a very different quality to it.

  7. To connect to the way your body felt when you walked in a certain direction compared to another is a beautiful thing but to allow this feeling to lead, rather than your “rational mind” taking over, is actually really cool. It may be simple and some might think, what’s the big deal, so you discovered somewhere beautiful to walk? But that is beside the point, the point is reminding the body to get use to leading the way and you are not only doing this but reflecting this back to us all by sharing your experience publicly.

  8. There have been many times in my life where I have not trusted what I have felt and it has been easy to see afterwards that I should have, but having 100% trust in oneself and what we feel does take trust and surrender and without this absoluteness it is easy to get sent down the wrong path by the mind.

  9. Trusting what we we feel is simple, and an absolute way to success, the key is in not confusing feelings with ‘being right’ because if we feel we are ‘right’ than this is likely coming from a form of self security, and not the openness which is God, our Soul and the Universe within our bodies.

  10. “What I am realising is that this old way seeks to control the outcome and robs me of the preciousness of simply being with me” controlling the outcome is some how playing safe, which cuts us off from our bodies leading the way.

  11. Reading this, I really get the sense that our body is to carry and move the quality within, and the purpose is in maintaining and moving with that quality. Executing the movement just for the sake of it has no purpose and does not serve. Thank you, Susan.

  12. I love the clarity and ease in how things develop when I listen to my body, there is a knowing that cannot be denied, it’s guidance spot on. But when my head takes over and I listen to it, things seems go all over the place and I loose touch with my body and it’s knowing.

  13. I wonder how much ‘magic’ we have missed out on over the course of our lives by choosing to be guided by our minds and not by the wisdom of our body. I for one know that I have missed out on heaps but thankfully these days my mind takes a back seat – well most of the time – to what I now know to be my inner wisdom and as a result the magic is always there waiting for me.

  14. What a great moment of appreciation, which all came as a result of honouring yourself and what you were feeling. We are so very much taken care of when we listen to our bodies, like getting the reminder to take a water bottle – it is something we can easily take for granted so to stop to appreciate it is awesome and a great reminder for me.

  15. I was just talking about this very subject with my cousin on the phone yesterday and we were talking about the time we were travelling together and stopped in a town to stay the night. From the very start I had a bad feeling about the place and it just got stronger and I had to express to him that I thought we should move on to the next town because I thought something would happen to us in this town. I’ll never know if something would have actually happened and usually I would have just overridden such a feeling but this one was too hard to ignore and my cousin agreed and didn’t protest even though it was getting late and we had nowhere to stay.

  16. I went on a walk the other day as I felt to feel into what I needed to look at about myself that begged addressing. I also felt strongly to take a turn I didn’t usually take and found myself was in a dead end street. I walked back and looked at street sign and found it to be Daydream close . . . I laughed as this was the answer to my question.

    1. How brilliant Kathleen – I love the way hierarchy communicates through the most cheeky and funny ways to us here. I have been often so glad that I do not live in Paradise Circuit – a street I have sometimes passed on a walk when staying with a friend. It feels like the ultimate dead-end trap.

  17. Actually what you have so openly shared has been huge for me
    “Thanks to the support of Universal Medicine, the teachings presented by Serge Benhayon and the various esoteric modalities, I have begun to trust more deeply what I feel, and be less caught up in needing life and my daily tasks to be a certain way. Hooray!”
    Getting me out of the way has been a trial to say the least as I have been so caught up in the identification of me. And this still happens letting go of self-identification is the hardest drug to give up. Some days I’m okay and some days I’m not it all depends on how hard I am being on myself. But at least thanks to the support of Universal Medicine, the teachings presented by Serge Benhayon and the various esoteric modalities, I have at least the awareness that I have a self-identification problem coupled with wanting control over how life should be. Actually that’s pretty demanding and arrogant of me. It’s no wonder God’s not playing ball with me because I want to play the wrong kind of game. God is not into individualisation he includes everyone in his games no one is left out. So I have a choice play on my own or join in the fun and be with God and his plan for earth.

  18. Awesome to hear how much more you are listening to yourself and your body .. this is something which I need to do a bit more!

  19. As my awareness grows and deepens my body guides me and everyday learn from it whether I listen to what i feel and be guided by it or override it. I get to feel and understand more the subtleties at play and of myself and also great joy.

  20. I used to use “plans” as a protection, I thought that if I had a plan, then everyone would know what I was doing and in this knowing, things would be safer. I am learning that plans do not always work out the way we might hope and now I have children, I have discovered that a plan can sometimes be more damaging than just seeing what unfolds. For if children think something is going to happen and then it doesn’t happen, they can get really disappointed. Just seeing what happens rather than planning it out, can be a very healing exercise when we are blessed with a day off work or space to do so. Your walk is the perfect example of what it feels like to let go, what occurs after that can only be described as magic.

  21. ‘The difference when I stopped thinking about the future result and chose to feel my feet and body as I walked was profound.’ This is a great reminder of the simplicity of moving with our bodies and not from our heads and how powerful that simple choice is.

  22. I can relate to making plans and preparing myself for the day/event ahead of me but sometimes thats not what my body needs or wants in that moment. And because it’s not true for my body those plans won’t go accordingly. But if my plans don’t go as expected were they true to my body in the first place? Something to take note of for my own self observation.

  23. Caring for our bodies is the most loving thing to do, and guess what love always feeds us back, so it will always return to us. The more love we bring into our body, the more truth we are able to walk and share with others. This is what I am starting to explore now by the absolute support of Universal Medicine, a business that truly cares about people and stands for truth and love endlessly. I am in deep appreciation of those who set this extremely profound business forth.

  24. I am continually being shown how not following what I truly feel leads me on a wild goose chase, bringing in complication and tiring to boot. The quality of how I choose to live allows me the knowing of how I truly feel so deeply caring and loving myself and appreciating all that I am offered is power to the course, so to speak.
