“Trust your gut instinct”… “I knew in my heart it was the right thing to do”… “I just had a feeling”… Our language reflects our understanding that the body has real wisdom and knowledge. Can you remember a time when your stomach knotted up in fear, your heart raced before an exciting challenge, you intuitively moved closer to a new love?
The human body comes equipped with an innate ability to intuit real danger, and a brilliant physical response system that knows when to run and when to fight — even when we are actively not listening to the information we are receiving from our senses. The body also has the inborn ability to know when we are safe, to know who can nurture us emotionally, and to bond in love and support with others.
That’s right: We are born with an innate instinct to survive and prosper, to love one another. One of the intrinsic ingredients that allows us to thrive is the experience of pleasure. However, when we are not actively listening to the information we are receiving from our senses, when we are taught that the language of the body will get us into trouble, it is much more difficult to respond naturally, to bond in long-lasting satisfying relationships with others.
