Body Intelligence A New Paradigm

How to live a Heart-Centered Life in a Mind-Centered World

Activate your bigger intelligence.

Most of us walk through life relying on rational thinking and half-baked ideas as our guide. This clear and refreshing book will help you get out of the old rut of thinking only with your brain. Dr. Mayfield has cracked the code on the mysteries of how the body and mind (actually a body-mind) function together.

By combining western medical physiology with classical acupuncture theory, he has pulled back the curtain with stories and simple understanding that let everyone feel their own body-mind connection. With seven simple habits, he shows us how to step out of the pain and suffering of mind-centered consciousness and fully live in the heart-centered world of our own making.

You will learn how to:

  • Release painful memories and old traumas
  • Take control of your multi-dimensional body intelligence
  • Tune into “first feelings” and listen to your innate wisdom
  • Rediscover the joy of movement you felt as a child
  • Bring your life into harmony with how all your organs operate
  • Experience your best, illuminated self
  • Achieve peace of mind

I was getting a little bored with life and tired of my mind ruminating over past hurts and scars. I was sick of that little voice telling me that I could not do the things I wanted to do, like travel, relax, or have a good time once in a while. I also felt impatient with the rigid ways in which I was brought up that kept me from living life at my full potential. It literally felt like I was in a cage. Unfortunately I didn't know how to move past this stuff and break through those invisible barriers and chains. Then this book fell into my lap and provided a clear way out.

For those of you who like to grow and learn, I can't recommend this book highly enough. There is a lot of important material packed into this book, and it's fairly easy to read because of all the little stories used as examples. You will also get out what you put into it. Occasionally the Dr will ask questions such as "Does your life feel like you lack the time or resources to do what you want? Are you languishing in one or more dead-end situations? Do you dislike the balance of your life?" I found if I stopped reading and really thought through the questions, I got answers I wouldn't have suspected, simply because most of the time I just get up and get on with the day without questioning what I am doing.

Divided into three sections, this book is well organized and the chapters have names that make it easy to go back and find a certain passage or topic. This makes it a GREAT reference book! I just finished reading it a couple weeks ago and I have gone back several times to re-read about the seven habits that change your life, or about the different systems in the body, or how intuition is related to the kidneys. Very interesting stuff.

My favorite part of Body Intelligence is the description of how to really feel your feelings. Even old ones that you've stuffed down. The first time I followed the directions for feeling my feelings, I was unprepared for the sickly wave of old emotion that washed over me and then quickly dissipated. After my initial shock that the technique had actually worked, I felt like I'd just gotten rid of a load of stinky garbage, or donated a huge bag of old clothes to a thrift store. While some of the feelings are really terrible and not fun to feel, at least they are not lurking inside me after I took the time to feel them.

I hope you consider this book. It is a definite life changer!
