"I see dead people."
Updated: Jul 19, 2018
I see dead people.
Now before you get too creeped out let me explain.
Most everyone I have ever met has hidden a part of what makes them feel alive. It is buried so deeply, it appears dead.
Occasionally they know when and why they stopped allowing such a special part of their personality to be seen.
Often the trait disappeared slowly, an almost imperceptible change.
Yet, somehow in the process of learning how their body moves, I see that part becoming stronger and healthier right along side of muscles and joints. Even better they begin to see it themselves.
The other day a client was at the Niche attending her Core for One appointment. She was enjoying 50 minutes of personal, mind/body/soul focus (i.e. Pilates).
Niche’r: Do you know what I like about coming here and taking this time for me? I feel big.”
Me: (Oh no! What did I say that made her feel big???) “What do you mean by big?”
Niche’r: “I am able to be ME, my full self. I am not hiding. I am not being small.”
I didn’t know whether to whoop for joy or cry with her.
She felt SEEN!
