Ways the Body Clues Us In to Resonance and Authentic Truth

Ways the Body Clues Us In to Resonance and Authentic Truth

Dear Rosies,

Bodies are constantly exchanging with the environment and responding to it. This often happens without ever bringing things into conscious awareness. The body has a lot of information about what’s right and good for us, even though we might have forgotten how to pay attention to its signals. We can become disconnected from our bodies’ signals for many valid reasons. 

We can tune into our bodies when we’re exploring whether a particular choice or direction - to see if it feels aligned with our true self, our desires, and our inner knowing. The body can help develop our intuition and inner guidance in decision-making and life choices. It’s a way of asking whether a particular choice, decision, situation, or path resonates. And it’s literal- where do you feel sensation in your body when you think of a person, an experience, an event? 

There are many somatic or bodily responses that people may experience in response to a perceived truth or a profoundly resonant experience, such as:

Gut Feeling: A "gut feeling" or "gut instinct" is a common somatic response to truth or authenticity. It's often experienced as a subtle sensation or knowingness in the abdominal area, typically the stomach or solar plexus. Many people rely on their gut feelings to make decisions or assess the authenticity of a situation.

Goosebumps or Chills: Experiencing goosebumps, shivers, or chills can be a visceral response to something that deeply resonates with an individual. It's often described as a tingling sensation that travels down the spine or arms. This can happen when one hears a particularly moving piece of music, witnesses a profound moment, or encounters a deep truth.

Heart Expansions: A sensation of the heart expanding or opening up can be a bodily response to emotional truth or connection. It's often described as a warm, expansive feeling in the chest area. This can occur during moments of deep love and compassion or when a meaningful experience touches one.

Tears of Recognition: Crying or shedding tears of recognition, often called "tears of truth," can be a powerful somatic response. These are not necessarily tears of sadness but rather an emotional release in response to an authentic, heartfelt moment or realization.

Body RelaxationSometimes, a deep sense of relaxation and ease in the body can be a somatic response to recognizing and aligning with truth or authenticity. It's as if the body releases tension and becomes more at ease in the presence of something genuine and true.

Elevated Energy or Elation: Feeling a surge of energy, enthusiasm, or even elation can be a somatic response to experiencing a deeply resonating truth. It's as if the body and spirit are uplifted by recognizing something profound and meaningful.

Piloerection (Hair Standing on End): In some instances, individuals may experience the sensation of their hair standing on end, known as piloerection, in response to a powerful or truthful experience. This can be particularly pronounced in awe, inspiration, or revelation moments.

Genital Somatic Responses can also be a sign of resonance, particularly in the realm of human sexuality and intimate connection. 

For women, a heightened genital somatic response, such as increased vaginal lubrication or engorgement, or tingling, can be a physiological sign of resonance and arousal. It reflects the body's natural response to authentic intimacy and attraction.

Men also experience genital somatic responses, such as an erection, as a physiological sign of resonance and attraction. While various factors, including physical stimulation, can influence these responses, they are also influenced by emotional connection and a sense of authenticity.

These somatic responses are deeply personal and can vary from person to person. They often serve as indicators that something significant or authentic has been encountered.

Sometimes, the connection to the body can’t be felt. Trauma and cultural standards can cause a disconnection from body experience. This article speaks to getting that connection back.  Restoring Somatic Awareness: Healing from Trauma and Cultural Repression, and how Individuals may learn to recognize and trust these bodily sensations to connect with their inner wisdom and discern truth in various aspects of life.
