“Whatever it is you’re seeking, won’t come in the way you expect it” by Haruki Murakami
How many Mothers’ Days have you woken up expecting certain things to happen – either for yourself, or from you towards others?
How many times, while in relationship, have you expected your significant other to fulfill your certain needs, only to be disappointed because what you were expecting did not happen, or did not happen in the way you wanted it to happen?
My experience has been that when I have and think about an expectation, it usually does not work for me. However, when I take the time to notice what my body is feeling and listen to the messages it is giving me, I ‘ground’ in reality and I know that I can trust.
Yes, I can trust that whatever happens, in any way it may happen, I am going to be OK. Once I can ground myself in trust, the miracle occurs; yet not at the time that I wanted it, but at the time that I needed it!
Bioenergetics has taught me to manage anxiety, fear, sadness and even excitement and joy. Doing my daily Bioenergetic exercise routine, including: stretching; grounding; and emotionally connected movement, it has trained me to feel at peace.
