Your somatic body (your nervous system) doesn’t have to go through the process of “thinking” — having a thought, interpreting that thought, and then having an opinion about that thought. (Did you ever think that a thought was so labour intensive?)
The body just feels. It doesn’t have a filter of judgements or worry. Something happens and then wham-boom-woosh, INSTANT feeling. INSTANT. Hits your gut, makes you blush, hairs stand on end, heart races, flush.
What did you FEEL before you started to think about it?
Because right there…there’s where your truth is.
Your body knows before your mind does
