Applying our consciousness to our body and to our breathing involves many skills and techniques, which I share with my clients, however it begins with one very simple thing: paying attention to our body, noticing the body, acknowledging the body and making a commitment to the body not to disconnect from it and get lost in the world of thoughts but to bring back the attention to the body as often as possible. Paying attention to the body and loving, caring and praising the body, expressing gratitude to the body. It takes a life-time to become good at loving ourselves, thanks to all the social and cultural conditioning that has shaped us to be self-neglectful, self-critical, self-sabotaging and self-denying. There is no need to micro-manage ourselves by learning communication skills and negotiating skills to create better loving conditions in our lives.
