What does my body need now?

Wholebody Focusing Haiku # 21
When upset, I ask
What does my body need now?
Then I notice me.

Frequently writing Haiku about my WBF discoveries not only helps me document what is emerging but also helps me to sustain the new healing.

As I was preparing for bed a few weeks ago, I noticed that I felt defeated. There were so many challenges that made me anxious and fearful that I wondered if it were useless to try to sleep. My husband and I have been experiencing serious health problems for the last year and a half and it feels exhausting to be in this place.

The words “what does my body need now?” came to me. I thought I would give it a try.  As a got into bed, I felt into my body as I asked this question. My hands moved. They landed crossed, on my upper chest with my hands near my shoulders. It felt so comfortable and comforting. The next thing I remembered is that I woke up at 6:00 AM. I had slept through the night and my hands were still in this position. It was as if I had given myself a seven hour Reiki treatment.

Haiku — Mid December

Diana Scalera

Being in contact with our energetic bodies means that we have cycles of awareness, feeling stuck, movement, not knowing, and healing.  Our bodies also respond to the seasons and the times of the year.  The holiday season can be a loving time and can also have some peril.   The Haiku that came these past nine days were about what was cycling through me that was preparing for the holidays.

Wholebody Focusing Haiku # 10

A new movement comes
My hand on my crown moving.
Connection to my core.

Wholebody Focusing Haiku # 11  
Not knowing is there
To help us be with ourselves
Until we are ready.

Wholebody Focusing Haiku # 12
Needing forgiveness
Of myself and my family.
Let my body move.

Wholebody Focusing Haiku # 13   
Regular partners
Begin to find parallels
Parts that need your love.

Wholebody Focusing Haiku # 14
Holiday fears rise
When I think about all that.
Holding space for me.

Reiki Haiku # 5
Universal life 
force
Please enter my body now.
Thank you for your help.

Reiki Haiku #6
Many ways to share
Your Reiki practice with  world
Self, other, distance.

Reiki Haiku # 7
Do you love yourself?
My first Reiki teacher asked.
I became silent.

Haiku, Reiki and WBF

I love the format of Haiku and have always used it to describe my urban experiences even though it is traditionally known as a form of poetry honoring nature. Since I love urban life so much, I include the urban built environment as part of “nature.” It is a product of humanity, therefore, for me, a part of nature. Almost everything we touch in cities is part of nature in some way. My very large apartment complex, for example, is constructed from bricks made from the clay residue of the glacier that became the Hudson River. I take great comfort in this as someone might living in a log cabin.

Why do I want to do this thing called Focusing – Wholebody Focusing. What is in it for me?

Going Back to Basics – Why do I want to do this thing called Focusing – Wholebody Focusing.
What is in it for me?
I am very surprised what came in me when I asked myself this question, especially “What is in it for me!” How selfish! Good experience in self loving and so much more….
But just the right question?
It is about me, the felt sense of me! Finding me….thank you Gendlin for framing this experience for us.
Does something come for you too as you feel/hear/see me say this?

What makes Wholebody Focusing so Special?

This blog is dedicated to those who seek healing through connecting to abundant benevolent energy to support their own body’s healing wisdom.  Our bodies’ inherent ability to heal waits for us to give our attention to what is present, continuously observing what is truly there with equal regard and accompanying our bodies as they explore their own healing in their own time and their own way.  We invite and welcome contributions from this community of self-healers to build this shared space with our stories, thoughts, theories, and experiences.
