1 I can tell the difference between
when my body is thirsty and when it is hungry.
Body awareness is important to your health and well-being. The largest constituent in the human body – somewhere
between 70 and 80% – is water. Your body requires constant rehydration. Human beings eat for three reasons:
energy to move the body, nutrition to sustain the body, and stimulation to cleanse the body of unneeded microorganisms.
The No. 1 thing that distinguishes intuitive people is that they listen to, rather than
ignore, the guidance of their intuitions and “gut” feelings. Successful business people
often say, “I don’t know why I did that, it was just a hunch.”
Apple founder Steve Jobs is famously quoted, “Have the courage to follow your
heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.”
In order to make our best decisions, we need to trust our instincts. They are the beginning of unfolding our potential as whole and functioning Selves. Listening to the body when the mind is still,
neutral and unswayed by any inclination, allows the body to become a teacher.
It informs you of thoughts and emotions you may have set
aside. The body then becomes an instrument for Self-realization,
a dowsing device in the relatively “new” science of kinesiology.
