Embodying Courage

So how was yesterday? How was it to focus on experiencing joy? What did you observe and what can you take forward into today?

Today we are going to focus on experiencing courage.

So decide where you are going to do this and whether you will stand, sit or walk.

I want you pay attention to your body in response to the following questions. Some are going to make a difference and some you’ll go “so what” to. Remember, this is about finding your magic recipe to embody your emotions more effectively, and more emotions will bring more energy and more energy will allow you to make different choices and take different actions.

Focus on a situation in your life you felt courage. This may be something that has already happened or something that is going to happen you already know about. Or just focus on feeling courage.

Observe what happens in your body when you do this.

Observe your breath pattern. Is it shallow, deep, fast or slow? Is it changing as you focus on courage?

Observe the energy in your body. Does it move up your body or down? Do you feel yourself contract or expand? Are you aware of energy at all? What changes as you focus on feeling and embodying courage? Do you have more or less energy?

If you find your mind wandering, observe it, acknowledge it and come back to courage.

Do you need to move to feel courage in your body? How do you need to move? Move and observe what happens. Maybe you need to stamp your feet or move with conviction.

How does focusing on courage affect your posture? Does changing your posture increase or decrease your experience of courage? Do you have a “courageous” posture?

When you focus on courage, do you feel like you expand or contract?

What do you become aware of?

Do you experience courage as something that comes from deep inside of you and expands out? Or is it something that you feel coming into your body (not from someone or something else, just coming in)?

Look for opportunities to feel courage through the day. Is there something that you’ve been avoiding doing that you need to face? Is there a small opportunity that requires you to be courageous? Look for small challenges that you could use to practice expressing courage.

Have a great day and please share your experiences and questions on our facebook page.
