Two conversations with Cristy de la Cruz about tapping our somatic wisdom in our relationship with money
Love this. We are so conditioned to ignore the sensation and feelings within us. Since I gave up diets and embraced intuitive eating, I had to do real work to reconnect with my body. I'm still far from where I want to be with it, but I'm also much much better than I was a year ago. It had not occurred to me that this connection would be a useful skill when it comes to spending, but it makes sense. It definitely feels like a useful skill in talking about money, since it's often a trigger for most people.
Body first, mind next - as my somatic therapist defines it. The body holds the wisdom that the analytical mind tries to discern.
