Texts From Your Body


Last night I had the honor of hosting a Girlfriend’s Gone Wild dinner party in a friend’s NYC apartment. I’ve gotta tell you, it was one of the best I’ve done. The view was incomparable, the food was incredible and the women were ready to #makeascene!

At the end of the night, I closed with a coaching tool that I created years ago called, “Texts From God.” The short explanation, is to ask yourself, “If God (or Universe or higher self) were to send you a text message right now, what would it say?” Without filtering, see if you can hear the guidance bubbling up. Tip: Higher guidance is short, clear and rings true. Ego or the human mind rambles, talks in paragraphs and is often worried or negative.

This morning I woke up a little groggy and with tired feet. I’m also sniffling and am a tad congested. Which reminded me…. our wise bodies need a say in how things roll.

When I asked, my body sent me a clear “text” : Rest me. No run today.

It feels true and kind, and not like the excuses I used to try and pass off as rest.

So I ask you, if your body were to send you a text message this morning, what would she say?

I’m curled up in a beautiful chair soaking in the view of the Hudson with a hot cup of lemon, ginger tea. I dare say the Statue of Liberty just winked at me.

P.S. I did run yesterday… Check out this view!
