When I was a child, I wondered - a lot, about everything. I didn’t have a lot of people in my life, and the few I had couldn’t keep up with me - which is my current way of saying my never-ending questions exhausted everyone. Had I found an intellectual outlet for all that wondering, I’m sure I’d have become a famous philosopher or accomplished inventor. But I was also a child with enough energy for 3 children and didn’t slow down long enough to consult that beautiful set of encyclopaedias that took up several shelves of the family book shelf for answers to my wonderings. Meaning, much to the dismay of my highly intellectual family, I didn't "go look it up.""To be surprised, to wonder, is to begin to understand." - Jose Ortega
So my wonderings spent a lot of time percolating inside of me, while I put all that energy to use moving my body as much as I could. Mix together a lot of movement with a lot of wondering, over many years - and you get a trusted intuition, a child-like curiosity and a huge appreciation of and comfort in the body’s innate intelligence. Why is that important? That’s were our Authentic Self lives, and that’s where our compassion lives.
I’m glad I’m not a philosopher or an inventor, because then I likely wouldn’t be a life coach. And one part of coaching I am most passionate about is helping others access their body’s innate intelligence and learn to trust their intuition. And, well, now I have a great reason to keep wondering: what could that look like if it could look any way you wanted? what’s stopping you? what does your body have to say about this? If you were to live more fully, consciously, authentically than you do now, how would you live? I spent my whole childhood wondering to myself, and that was pretty great. But sharing that with others is…. well, I’m pretty sure we can change the world with our collective embodied compassionate wonderings!
