you acknowledge that we are spiritual beings having a human experience, then
it’s not so far to leap.
We recognize the power of massage for our physical bodies.
It’s time we recognize and enact massage for our soul.
I was at a early morning yoga class on Saturday. The class was winding down, and as we always do in the final stage of class, we were in the pose called pigeon.
It is my absolute favorite pose because it stretches the hip flexors, which is where I pack away emotion, fear, anger — everything. It always feels oh-so-good, plus it’s a ‘resting pose’ so I’m focused on how good it feels rather than the the work of class.
When the calm-spirited yoga teacher laid her hands gently on my back, and pushed just a wee-little-bit to deepen the stretch, my soul felt it.
A soul massage brings more joy to your life. It’s a bit of transcendence sprinkled into our lives like pixie dust.
Unlike physical massage, it doesn’t usually cost money and it doesn’t come in 50-minute packages. Maybe it’s a:
- A walk at sunrise
- Laughing with friends
- An exquisite tasting meal
most interesting thing, however, is that when you recognize the tender
connection made with your soul, it amplifies the joy.
Invite your soul to connect with your physical self. Together, you’ll begin to notice your human experience…and relish the moments of intersection when your physical and soulful self connect.
You’ll know the connection has been made by the deep soul-joy you’ll feel.
To get started, just be aware.
Aware of a joy that feels deeper. Different.
Smile when you feel it as a way of acknowledging the intersection.
And, soak it in.
