PURPOSE: To build a more intimate and honest relationship with your body. Practice learning what truth feels like for simple statements, building muscles to be applied to more complex matters such as money.
PREPARATION: You need five minutes, space to put your body in, and the willingness to listen closely to your body.
Minute one: Name three truths and three falsehoods. Do not fret for the “right statements” – spontaneously allow them to emerge. Write them down if it helps to remember.
Minute two: Stand, feel your feet on the ground, spine elongated, top of the head reaching to the sky. Select the three truths and state them out loud. Note, these do not need to be profound – eye color, favorite food and movie will do. Notice what truth feels like in your body.
Minute three: Remain standing. Speak your falsehoods out loud. State them clearly and loudly one at a time. Notice what a lie feels like in your body. Compare and contrast the feeling to your previous experience. (Hint: notice breath, tension and constriction).
Minute four: Return to your truth statements. State them out loud again. Pay close attention to the distinct and subtle body imprints that signal truth.
Minute five: Recognize and register at least one body feeling of truth and one body feeling of falsehood to build your body-truth relationship.
Complete your practice by abiding in body-truth. Commit to building your body-truth relationship in service of embodying Sufficiency.
