Emotional Body Authenticity + Loving Kindness
Emotional body literacy is rare.
Very few people learn the art of emotional body intelligence, let alone put it into action through relationship with self, relationship with others, and heart centered communication.
The ability to attend your emotional body inner wisdom consistently and authentically takes courage, commitment, presence and ongoing practice. But the results are profound.
It is vulnerable territory. To show up radically for yourself- to navigate the often choppy and violent inner waters.
The emotional body is as wild and untamed as the Divine Feminine.
She is your ever expanding Self. She often forces you to look at Her even though you'd rather not. Most people are resisting Her- which means they are also missing her wisdom, intelligence and gifts as well.
As you courageously move closer to your emotional body, you gain access to a fuller range of experience. As a human being.
Deepening emotional body intelligence increases your capacity to feel, to receive, to get needs met, and therefore be nourished more as well.
I've come to the conclusion that everyone has the same basic core need:
Think about it.
To be "nourished" means that you feel safe, comforted, supported. It means that you have moved beyond survival. It means that you are receiving on some level- you are not in resistance or avoidance.
Nourishment is life, essentially.
When you are able to say yes to nourishment, it means you are saying yes to life as well.
How often do you feel nourished?
When does this feeling show up?
Who does it show up with?
Who does it not show up with?
What does nourishment mean to you?
Where do you feel nourishment in your body when it arrives?!
Nourishment is a powerful resource.
A tool of resiliency and inner stability. It is a baseline that can help deepen receptivity- so other needs can be met. It is also an important marker for emotional body intelligence.
Inner tracking is the first step in honoring what is arriving within.
It can open the door of loving kindness- for yourself and others. It can help you show up for yourself in a non judgemental way, a compassionate way. When you can show up for yourself in this way, you can start showing up for others in this way too.
You can start communicating from this place as well. (Ill be sharing more about heart centered communication in the coming days).
If you're ready to deepen your relationship with Nourishment, see below.
I've posted a Creative Ritual to help you honor your inner nourishment and to help you build more awareness with this powerful resource.
In the coming days I will continue to share resources that will support your emotional body relationship.
I'm honored you are following along, that this conversation is meaningful to you, that you feel a desire to lean in closure to yourself and your inner landscape.
It takes courage. But it is a vital part of the healing journey. Your willingness to listen to your inner intelligence will take you far.
Looking forward to sharing more emotional body wisdom with you in the coming days as we continue this 14 day journey together.

Nourishment Creative Ritual
1) Using craypas, paints or pencils, create an image of your nourishment. What does nourishment feel like for you? Create an image that expresses this feeling using colors, textures and shapes. Allow 20 minutes at minimum for this nourishment image. Title your image.
2) Use your image to inspire a movement exploration. Let your body move in response to yournourishment image with an intention of "moving with your feelings of nourishment". What sensations emerge for you during your dance? What awareness? Allow 5 to 10 minutes for this movement exploration. I encourage you to extend this time frame as you recycle this process.
3) Harvesting. In your journal answer these questions:
I am, I want, I need, I sense, I feel, I imagine.
What deeply nourishes me? What no longer nourishes me?
Where do I feel support in my life? Where do I need more support?
What am I opening to? What am I closing to?
