Relationships

Every so often, a friend of mine reminds me, “We want two things in life: to be loved and to be out of pain.” While we really want to be loved, we are not so willing to acknowledge our own value. So many times, we feel that others are more important than we are or than we could be. This is simply not true. We all have an inherent value and we are all lovable.
Sometimes, things happen that bring us to a place where we believe that we are not lovable. If on any level we believe that this is true, then it makes it extremely difficult to receive love or acceptance from others whether in our personal or work relationships.

This mindset works in our bodies in similar fashion to a computer program that runs continually in the background of our subconscious even without our conscious awareness. As it runs, this program looks at every situation and tests it in an attempt to confirm over and over that this belief must be true.

In BodyTalk, we look at the whole person and address those things that affect the body, mind and spirit. Some BodyTalk techniques work directly to help balance belief systems and release emotions. Other techniques help change the way we interpret our environment and interact with others around us. In fact, making shifts in the way we perceive the world around us changes the way we respond to the people in our lives. They in turn change the way they respond to us. BodyTalk sets up an environment for change and allows for us to experience life with healthier relationships.

In my own healing journey, BodyTalk has made a great difference in the way that I relate to myself and to those around me. It has changed my life.
