It is the Body that RULES most people’s world. Some say it’s the EGO.
Brene Brown says “When we imprison our Hearts to Protect our EGOS. We kill courage. Yes, A liberated heart is more vulnerable, but it’s also more daring.”
This means we often shut down our EMOTIONAL Body to “Protect” our MENTAL body.
Mental body = Your individual (and absorbed) thoughts, attitudes, judgments, and prejudices
How you perceive your self worth AND your value in the world
How you perceive other people’s worth
If you think your value is greater than another
A CALL FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE
What it represents:
All things intellectual, like how you learn, process, and express yourself. Mindset is one of the most important elements for balancing your bodies – because some many people are stuck there. The ability to cultivate clarity, Creative Vision, and make that Vision into a reality – are all keenly tied to your ability to think.
Behaviors when the Mental body is balanced:
Growth Mindset Is Activated
Problem Solving is FIRING
Clear & Concise Communication
Ability to integrate Emotional or Physical with directness & support
Minimal mental waste, nonsense, or hamster wheeling.
Instead, Northern Alignment!
How the Underbalanced Mental Body Displays Misalignments:
Brain fog & Confusion
Unclear Thoughts / lethargy
Lack of Purpose,
Neuroses – over judgement, doubt.
Low Self Esteem, Low Self Worth
Physically, for female identified bodies this can manifest as a lack of a menstrual period and little self-care.
For male? Lack of desire or ability to sexually connect. Or using sexually as an ESCAPE stress versus a means to emotionally connect.
How the Overbalanced Mental Body Displays Misalignments:
Ego-centric & excessively driven
(Corporate Executives much ;)) – speaking from experience
Extreme? Narcissistic or Sociopathic = having little or no empathy especially when it comes to work or success.
Less extreme? Consistently doing too much = inability to say no + sync into pleasure
People often experience physical pain in the form of headaches and jaw aches, even upper shoulder tension.
How to ALIGN & BALANCE to Mental Body:
The person “stuck in their head”? Needs to drop into their body.
But not FORCE the body with regiment & high stress workouts. Start here:
Enjoyable moderate cardio (walking in nature or with a friend)
Therapy, Coaching, or Education specializing in Emotional Expression
GET IN TOUCH with energy/emotions and spirituality for balance.
You might need to re-anchor (i.e., do some inner child work) and oftentimes seek support with energetic work from a trusted guide (Coach, Therapist, Energy Practitioner)
