March Embodiment

My word of the year is EMBODIMENT and each month I try to let the word soak deeper into my being through reading, listening, and seeing where and how it resonates with me. I am enjoying savoring the word and its meaning in my life.

For this month, I've been focusing on these questions as I work on moving out of my head and into my body:

When I feel most myself...
Where am I?
Who am I with?
What am I doing?
What am I wearing?

The answers to these questions have almost always brought me outside into nature, in the woods or on a lake or down a path, comfortably dressed, alone or with a friend, with no headphones to block the sounds or distract from the sights.

Other times, I am in my bed, under a fluffy, white down comforter, in my jammies, puppies by my side, reading a book or gazing out the window.

My hair up in a messy bun, my clothes comfortable and roomy, I am doing something that engages me and takes me away from my thoughts of past or future, and I am alone or in the presence of a loved one.  

This month I am stopping to think about the ways I can drop out of my head and into my body.  I am engaging in the present moment, appreciating its sights, sounds, textures, colors, and scents, and enjoying the company of my authentic Self.

  1. I love this for you. My therapist had me really work on envisioning something this past week, and I have been thinking about it since Tuesday. I love that you have a word dedicated to the year. My husband has a motto, “2023 is the year you worry about yourself.” He means mostly people filled with hate, but it applies more often than it would.

  2. “I am stopping to think about the ways I can drop out of my head and into my body”—this is a wonderful thing to focus on. I just signed up for an online class to help me dig deeper into this very thing. I love your questions and will add them into my mix of journal prompts.
