My clients often ask me about how to better understand the messages of their bodies. My answer is: by living more in the body!
In order to practically develop this, additionally to the individual sessions and to the group activities on Thursday morning, I decided to organize a series of 3 conferences on “Breathing”, “Sleeping and Resting” and “Digest”.
The aim of these 3 conferences is to help the participants to become more embodied.
Being stuck, overwhelmed, tired, anxious, with physical symptoms and pains have an influence on our respiration, our ability to rest and our digestion.
Release consciously tensions; be aware about the reactions to what you perceive, have a calmer mind so to notice the signals of your body help to regain control on your negative reactions.
“I have been taking a series of sessions with Michelle, and felt hugely supported by her! Her warmth and humor, paired with clarity and a lot of experience, created an atmosphere of great trust and understanding. This allowed me to connect more with myself and learn new ways to take on challenges” David, Musician.
“The sessions taught me to listen to my emotions and to become more resilient in front of situations that were distressing to me. Michelle has provided me with gentle and effective support.” Carole, engineer.
In my last article I started a reflexion about being right and wrong. And how believing to be in the right side is reassuring but also creating stress and uneasiness in our body. I would like to continue this reflection sharing with you something more personal: the ping-pong match that sometimes is going on in my brain.
Sometimes, I can experience in myself – and I know that some of my clients do the same – a ping pong match between 2 scenarios or 2 analysis or 2 opposite aspects. I’m not able to stop on one side and to let go the other one. My thinking is continuously moving : on one side I have “this is wrong, but…” and on the other side “this is right, but…”.
“Together with Michelle I was able to solve certain things and now I see them in a different light. It was fascinating how certain emotional blocks were reflected physically. Because she helped me to question my view and I could better interpret the signals from my body with her, I learned to let go and can handle certain circumstances better. Although sometimes it was anything but easy, I was always looking forward to the sessions with Michelle. The rapid progress has strengthened me and shown that I am on the right track. Michelle supported me optimally, never condemned me and I felt well looked after by her. After each session I left her practice relieved. Grinberg positively changed my self-confidence and I became mentally stronger. Thank you.” Denise
Why, at some moments, it is so important to be right? Why it becomes so important to proof to ourselves and to others that our opinions or our actions are correct?
The answer is quite simple: being right reassures us. It is a way to know that we didn’t do anything wrong and eventually that other people are on the wrong side.
