Overthinking blocks real communication. The most essential part of how we communicate is how we listen, both to ourselves and to others. This practice of listening starts with our body.
Our bodies tell us when we need to back off and rest, when we need to move towards something, when we need to reconsider or get more information, when we need to have an authentic conversation, when we need to forgive, when we’ve done things that are good for us, and so much more. Our bodies never lie, as they communicate through sensation and not language. They are communicating at an even deeper level than our thinking minds. Our work in becoming better communicators comes from our willingness to learn to better listen to our bodies.
It’s a specific language that we haven’t necessarily been practicing since birth, so it may take some time to learn as an adult. However, if we are willing to learn, we can start to have a lot of fun and discover things we would never otherwise discover.
A new language gives us access to a whole new world. Releasing overthinking and learning to truly listen in a new way is the access.
