For today's journaling session the prompt was to write dialogue with someone/ thing that's stressing you out, so I decided to write to a body part directly: my brain. I don't know if it's the creative format, the directness of dialogue method, or the fact I'm a writer by profession, so it's easy for me to slip into the "voice" of another character, but this was one of the most interesting and insightful journal exercises I've done (and I journal daily). It really got the heart of why my symptoms started when they did, what my unconscious brain wants, why it's still giving me illness, and how I can go about healing. It illuminated my need to nurture and care for myself, to listen to what I really want rather than push through, and even highlighted some surprising resistance. We all have different things that appeal to our psychology, but if you're doing this exercise I'd highly recommend you talk to a body part, it was a great tool to tap into my inner workings, and very insightful. Has anyone else 'talked' to a body part? What was your experience?
