An experiment for you to see for yourself…
Sit for a minute and relax with your eyes closed. After a couple deep breaths, just imagine an experience you’ve had with touch that may have been brief, superficial and maybe even felt obligatory. Perhaps you’re at an environment with associates where you had to be “on” and put on your professional hat. Just as you’re portraying a socially acceptable and “professional” appearance, as are they. Imagine yourself shaking new hands and greeting co-workers. How do you feel as the experience goes on? Feelings of energetic inspiration or feelings of monotony and depletion? Something else? It may be a little uncomfortable, but really sit with this imagined experience and notice how your body feels. Pause and acknowledge what happened.
Now, take a couple more deep breaths and imagine an experience you’ve had with someone who you could genuinely be your true authentic self with, someone who does not judge you one bit. Still sitting with your eyes closed, imagine a warm, welcoming hug from this person who’s presence allows you to feel like you can just be “you” and do not have to pretend to be anything else. A stroke of your arm from this person, a rub on your neck or a chest to chest, heart to heart embrace may elicit something inside of you. How do you feel as this experience goes on? Pause and acknowledge what happened.
For me, this experiment provided vastly different feelings with the two scenarios. In the experience where I am with someone I can be real and accepted and we provide each other with intimate touch, it makes me feel ALIVE. It literally fuels and nourishes my whole self, just the way that eating, drinking water and breathing air does. I feel like I am alive and thriving as opposed to just surviving and going through the motions. This desire isn’t lustful, wrong or shameful whatsoever.
Recognizing, accepting and embracing the need for intimate touch does wonders to one’s self.
In my sessions, I walk you through how to experience this feeling, what you need to do in order to feel ALIVE. Let’s face it, our life is a constant roller coaster, with the highs and lows sometimes multiple highs and lows within the same day. Without this intimate touch, you could still go about life. But with this touch, you will enjoy the moment, and nourish your body and soul to take on life on your terms.
Come, schedule a session with me, and see for yourself, how beautiful life is.
