A LETTER TO MY BODY
I don't speak to you often enough, my darling,
But today, it felt important,
As I grazed your soft skin and whispered
My love for you.
I realised, I don't give you enough credit for the stuff you manage for me so wisely,
Without me even having to try.
And, sometimes, I am even harsh and unkind to your beautiful curves.
Yet I'm grateful. I'm so truly grateful,
That you know what to do -
Even when I think I don't.
I'm grateful for your ability to somehow hear,
The song of wisdom that is so innately ingrained within us,
That it's something you know how to listen deeply to,
Whilst I'm busy listening to the superficial story of our mind.
And yet we are all the same,
Our body is our mind, is our soul.
But somehow we forget, my love,
As we find ourselves in such disharmony.
But we are one.
And so, as I remembered that today,
I put on my favourite essential oils to delight your senses,
And I settled down softly into my bed,
Noticing your weariness,
Speaking to it,
And allowing us to gently and slowly unfold,
With no agenda,
Except to rest, as nature intended,
In this very moment.
Exactly as we are;
Body, mind and soul,
Relaxing and unravelling.
As I whispered my words of gratitude,
And I breathed deeply into the knowing you offered,
As you reminded me that we were in this together.
And that we knew exactly what to do. 💜
