Unleash Your Tongue and Swallow Your Pride. Really?

I feel like I’m swallowing something when I take a risk to speak up with my mouth open wide and my heart hanging out. 

einstein sticking out tongueSure, I did make a promise when I was 7 years old to keep quiet, lay low, and play it safe. It takes a lifetime to shake that one off. Yeah, more like peeling off layers and layers of an invisible shield made of skin-tight armor.

For a moment, in spite of fear, I will linger and dangle off the tip of my tongue.

The tongue tells no lies.

Literally, take a moment and walk over to a mirror. Turn on a light and stick your tongue out at yourself. You’ll have an honest reflection of what’s going on deep inside your guts. Right away-the color, texture, moisture, aroma speaks volumes of your health. Hydration, hormones, and history looks right back at you. Linger a little longer, you say?Unleash Your Tongue

  1. A hydrated tongue is plump, slippery, without a film or coating.
  2. Your hormone read:  if you’re tongue is pink and smooth you’re not running on adrenaline.
  3. Historically (not hysterically) if you’ve dined on unprocessed, nutrient drenched foods, your tongue will unfurl shamelessly with nothing to hide. You’ll see a rosy pink protrusion of firm muscle eager to drool and caress whatever crosses it’s path.

Pride is dry and edgy. I resist letting it roll past my tongue.

When I was 7, being vulnerable and transparent felt deadly. Bullying older brothers and a beyond-bullying teenage stepmother were ready to pounce immediately if I dropped my guard. Or so I believed. And later, pride was too dense to chew. I went to school wearing bruises on my nose, cheeks and eyes and wearing clothes that drooped because I was dried up and underweight. How do I swallow the truth that my father sent me to an orphanage in El Paso instead of sending me to my Mom in San Antonio?  How could I wrap my tongue or mind around betrayal?

Tongue and groove is a tight fit with room to breathe. Snug as a bug in a rug.

Is pride hard to swallow? Pride is what fills hollow bones so you can stand upright. Pride vibrates wide like a rumble instead of squeaks like an untuned violin. Pride roars. Pride owns. Pride claims. So what’s hard to swallow here? Hmmm. Could authority be hard to swallow? Well, I am my own author of my own story of my own life and my reality. There! I not only chewed that up; I gulped it down, digested it, absorbed its nutrients, assimilated its gift, and pooped out the lies that I’m undeserving! Yeah! I say:  Don’t swallow lies that you need to be bigger, stronger, smarter than you currently are. You do have authority to show up and take the next step forward in meeting your life. Yes, hesitation and doubt are too bitter to bite. And Please swallow whole the truth that you are perfectly proud to be human this lifetime. Unleash Your Tongue and Pride So let’s say for a moment, I unleash my tongue and swallow (ingest) my pride. Then what?

My voice pierces through invisible hymens. I do pop cherries! What once was virgin territory that harbored family secrets and blame, is now a fecund garden, seeded with swollen promises of future bounty. I roll over and expose my soft side. I let you rub my belly. Try it on.

Unleash your tongue and with pride let your truth roar.

Key #1:

Hydrate. What, Drink and Drive?

Yes. If you are hydrated, that means you’ve been drinking all day long; 8-10 glasses. You’ve been drinking while driving your most precious vehicle-your One and Only Body. Drinking all day long requires making YOU top priority!

You will trust your intuition when you trust your ability to take care of YOU!

You will trust reading and interpreting the signs that pop up on your radar.

Stop, Slow Down, Curves Ahead, Steep Grade…will make sense when you are well lubricated. Your body will run smoothly and safely.

Key #2

Listen to your Body Sensations.

You know the usual-ears burning, prickly back of the neck, chills running down your spine.

Develop a relationship with your body language. Your body never lies. Unfortunately you may have been taught to dull your senses. The good news is that remembering is much easier than learning something new. You are the Top expert of your body. The more you listen, the more you will trust reading your body signals. Seriously, trusting your intuition can save your life, or someone else.

Key #3

First say Yes, then pause and reflect.

You remember multiple choice questions? Remember how everyone said-go with your first hunch? You might have thought it was random guessing, yet you were more often right. Wow! Who would have thought that was following your intuition?

Learning how to listen to your inner guide is remembering your first language:  non-verbal body language.  Subtle changes in heart beat and breath are loud to our inner ears.  Develop a practice of listening and responding. Yoga, movement, laughter and being lighthearted are all pathways to trusting your intuition.

Stop Writing, Start Doing! (What’s YOUR Activation Look Like?)

Oh Yeah! Sophie -you got me with “… try it on for size. My favorite seemingly mundane but extraordinarily meaningful way of engaging with generosity is doing things for another that are utterly unnecessary. ” Thank you for continuing to press forward!

The Generosity Chronicles

Tonight, I share two quotations that have inspired me:

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” Helen Keller.

“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” John Wooden, legendary UCLA basketball coach.

To those sweet morsels, I add a few of my own words:

I had grand plans to launch a whole new series of posts on this site. To commit to a daily practice of blogging, and unveil a new approach to generosity.

These days, however, there’s something that’s feeling even more important:

Spending my time engaged in acts of generosity, rather than writing about them.

I’m sick of writi—no, that’s not right. I adore writing. I adore the experience of transferring thoughts to words; adore the expressions of…
