Dry Brush Your Body

In all the exercises of the Soul Coaching® program, the Earth exercises are not my favourite!  My body and I just don’t always get on, and whilst yesterday I thought I was getting to a point where I was happy with my body.  However, this exercise was one that I put off again and again.  The exercise is for me to dry brush my skin and then take a shower.  I did take a shower though, but I didn’t dry brush.  When I did – it was actually quite a funny experience!

I brought my ‘dry brush’ when I first did the Soul Coaching program, and that was some time ago.  Every now and then I would pull it out, but not that would be just to brush my hands so that I could not class it as clutter!  Terrible I know!  However, I finally went with for it!  I begun with my hands and arms and well it just tickled.  I just went on and on, and it just tickled!  I am ticklish, my sister has also told my nieces this, and so I am often subjected to the tickling of a 9 and 6 year old!  However this was different!  It was a combination of tickling and being scratched at the same time, but it felt good.

Dry brushing is good not only for clearing away old dead skin, it also stimulates the lymphatic system to help detoxify my body, and this is what I probably needed more than anything.  Once the whole process of dry brushing was done, the shower was a good thing!  It felt great to be able to clear away the old, and I realised that clutter clearing wasn’t just a physical or mental thing, but also with my body.  I have realised that I do carry my body around with me all day long.  It is probably holding onto it’s own clutter, and dry brushing is one way of me starting that process.  I noticed that after my shower I had a little more energy, and I thought more clearer about what I was putting into my body.  I do not eat foods that support me, but I can change that by catching myself before I do it.

Taking time for my body for me is not always easy, but when I do just take five minutes like I have done, it has made a difference.  I know that my body is always with me, no matter where I go – and it has enabled me to do so much more in my day than I thought would be possible.  Sometimes, it’s the little things that make the biggest difference.  I didn’t think that this exercise would be fun, but it allowed me to just be for a few minutes.  It allowed me to laugh at myself and the responses to the dry brush, and it allowed me to cherish my body a little bit more – something that I don’t do at all.
