Embrace Stress, Discover Belonging:
The Art of Sensation-Based Self-Leadership
Are you constantly overwhelmed by the fast pace of modern life? Does it feel like your to-do list is never-ending, leaving you perpetually busy and anxious?Are you a highly sensitive individual or a high-achiever who often finds yourself struggling with relationships and daily life while trying to keep up a facade? Despite your best efforts to fit in and meet societal expectations, do you always feel like you don't quite belong?
Sensation-Based Self-Leadership offers a fresh perspective. It transforms the underlying sensations of powerlessness and hopelessness associated with the overwhelming pace of modern life into a journey of acceptance, compassion, and a deep sense of belonging and support as you navigate life's challenges.
Whether you're just starting or looking to deepen your journey, know that you don't need to make significant changes in your everyday life to make significant steps in applying the art of sensation-based self-leadership. One thing you can do is as simple as asking yourself these three questions from time to time:
1. What is going on right now? (Example: I'm sitting on the bus.)
2. What am I thinking? (Example: I'm wondering what to cook for dinner.)
3. What different sensations can I notice within my body (Example: tension in shoulders, tingling sensation in fingers.)
If the answer to the third question is 'I don't know' or 'I don't feel anything at all,' simply stop there with no need to dig further. It's important to approach this process gently, without forcing it, and to recognize that 'not knowing' and 'not feeling anything at all' are also somatic experiences.
By gently practicing this simple 3-step process, you'll gradually increase your awareness of what's happening within you. This is an easy and effective way to take a significant step toward leading a more sensation-based life.
