Hi Daisy,
I've given a lot of thought to this. Clearskies and I bought a book (for a nickel) on amazon and it is full of tips to become more attuned to the lives our bodies live. "coming home to your body"

Here's an excerpt (p. 79) March 11

"Birds are singing. Light green leaves adorn branches that recently stood bare against the gray winter sky. Buds pop out, promising colorful flowers soon. Rebirth is in the air.*

All of creation goes through death and resurrection experiences. We let go of a hurtful relationship, making room for new love. we end a job that stifles out creativity and risk a new venture. Rejecting old images of our bodies, we insist on loving ourselves more.

Join the spring festivities. Acknowledge you personal rebirth by enjoying a refreshing bath. To prepare, find several sprigs of honeysuckle with its joyous aroma*. Placing one sprig in your hair, save the other sprigs for your bath.

Play uplifting music that creates a sense of anticipation. After turning on the water in the tub, mix in a cup of oatmeal*. This natural cleanser will gently remove the dead cells of the past and reveal your fresh new skin. Sprinkle the remaining sprigs of honey suckle across the water.

As you sink into the tub and relax picture the ending of some aspect of your life. Feel the sadness and grief, the tiredness and relief. Then imagine the new birth, as your life now has room for more life and adventure. Let yourself be absorbed in the gladness as your lungs draw in the sweetnesses of the honeysuckle.

Wash yourself with gentle soap, removing all traces of the past. Rinse and gently pat yourself dry. Wear the honeysuckle in your hair the remainder of the day to remind you that you've passed through a valley of darkness and again into the light."

* no honey suckle where I live. I'll just use lavender bath salts instead, and put a dab of essential oils behind my ear
*what happens to the oatmeal after the bath? won't it clog the drain? Can I eat it hahaha :)
