6. Your Body Speaks Your Mind
One of 2 current reads… Deb Shapiro; Your Body Speaks Your Mind. I continue to be astounded by how accurate this book is, it basically unfolds what Your illness is telling You about Yourself. What illness You’re manifesting through Your thoughts & emotions. • • • My current issue is PMS; “…affecting moods, causing headaches, food cravings, a decrease in energy levels, irritability, swollen and/or painful breasts, constipation…”. “Obviously, it is telling You that You need to rest or at least have time out to Yourself…” • • • Bodymind dialogue; “Women get caught between the pressure of work & longing to be quiet or restful. Add a large measure of guilt, lack of self-love (taking care of self) & stress & is it any wonder that You dislike having periods, tense up around them, and then have menstrual problems?…” ??? • • • How do You relieve Your PMS? How does it make You feel; emotionally & physically? #YourBodySpeaksYourMind #DebShapiro #BodyCues #BodyMindDialogue #PMS #MoonCycle
While few people recognize it, your mental health can affect your physical health. The truth is, your body is more susceptible to your thoughts and feelings than you think.
