How to Connect with your Visions and Dreams using the Felt Sense in your Body
The article explains how to use the felt sense in our body to work towards your visions and to achieve your goals, in a simple easy to follow way
A few yeas back I worked with a single expat who had recently arrived here in Belgium. We spent some time reflecting on where he wanted to be 3 years ahead of time, as he would be moving on to his next project. He told me he would be married, and have a child. He also said that he would be going om to head up a country for his company – one of the major players in the pharmaceutical industry. He had tuned into his bodily sensations of how this would all feel on the inside – in a bodily way.
I met him again recently. He told me that he was leaving Belgium to take on the CEO job he had wanted, he had married and has wife was expecting their first child.
So how did he do it?
On our first day together, we had taken some time for him to connect with his bodily felt senses. He had listened for what success feels like for him. He had connected with this place sometimes during the intervening time. Obviously, he had also worked hard to achieve his goals!
This process of connecting with the felt sense of the body, and connecting it with the mind can be powerful. One of my colleagues uses it to address health issues. She swears it has also saved her previously rocky marriage . I use it to handle challenging situations and to bring more ease and inner peace in my life.
I have also been using it to build my coaching business. i connect with the feeling I want to experience, at the end of a good day of coaching, and i am glad to let you know that its working.
This process of connecting your intentions with how you want to feel in a bodily way is accessible to anyone. For some it is easy and straightforward, and I invite you to experiment. For others, the process can be more complicated. Things can get in the way, and you may need support to connect with the vision that you want. There may be obstacles to be dealt with before you can reach that clarity of your vision, and this step is key.
Connecting with the body in a felt sense kind of a way is often a key component to my work with people. Here is what you can do. Take a few moments to connect with the ground, to your physical environment, including sounds, the light etc, and to the feeling of your own body. Then you can bring to mind the thing that you are wanting, your vision, and see how it feels in your body. Then you need to anchor it, so that you remember the feeling. Its a place you can come back to over and over again as you get on and work towards your goal.
The felt sense in your body can also support you as you work towards any coaching goal
