I noticed that the language of the body is a non-verbal language of sensations and feelings. The reading and interpreting of the body signals can be a challenge, as it speaks the language of sensations (tingling, tickling, pain, cramps, numbness, etc.) and / or emotions (sadness, regret, fear, joy etc.), which contains an unusual amount of subtlety. It is the level of empathy and knowledge of your own mind that decides how well the body will be understood, and in the further process - how precisely its needs will be met.
It is a similar way of communication, like in an infant who has not developed the ability of verbal communication yet and the guess work by trial and error method is necessary in order to find out what they need and the measure of success in guessing a baby's needs is its satisfaction and in the long run, health. In adults, communication goes a similar way, where in case of poor guessing of our body signs, as a result, we get loss of balance and if the situation prolongs, disease.
The mind uses thoughts that can be expressed in words and has the ability to receive and interpret the body signals and make decisions based on them and other information it has access to and you can tell by the individual's condition a lot about their quality.
Well, my condition wasn't the best. I decided to take a closer look at how my mind and body communicates with one another and if anything can be improved here.
I started to analyze how I made decisions in the past, these were the decisions I made based on certain types of signals and what their consequences were.
I noticed that my repeated mistake (for the sake of this reasoning I call the decisive part of me as 'mind') is incorrect interpretation of the body signs. What was the 'incorrectness' about? For example, many times I felt a nauseous feeling in the stomach, which the mind interpreted as hunger and in such cases, I chose to eat some food, after which I started feeling even more nauseous. In my mind library, I had this feeling associated with hunger, but in fact the association must have been wrong as my decisions didn't lead to fulfilling the need, moreover, caused extra discomfort whereas the nauseous feeling was still there and frustrated me. I didn't know what was wrong and how to find out what my body needed.
I wasn't quite clear what to do and how to break out of the vicious circle of body signal misinterpretation. The only thing I could come up with is to act different from before which was to STOP after each body signal and give myself a couple of minutes before any interpretation regarding what my body wanted from 'me'.
It wasn't much at the start, but at least I left behind the point where I couldn't take any further steps. A new goal appeared, which was actually still the same - good health but with a slightly modified way to achieve it by better decisions based on improved internal communication between the body and mind.
