Eckhart Tolle Quote
Eckhart Tolle, author of A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose, coined the phrase, "inner body awareness." In his book he provides direct instructions on how to feel the inner body. The instructions are provided below, so you can start practicing and enjoying all the benefits today.

Feel Your Inner Body

Excerpt from A New Earth - by Eckhart Tolle

"If you are not familiar with "inner body" awareness, close your eyes for a moment and find out if there is life inside your hands. Don't ask your mind...go to the hands directly. By this I mean become aware of the subtle feeling of aliveness inside them. It is there. You just have to go there with your attention to notice it. You may get a slight tingling sensation at first, then a feeling of energy or aliveness. If you hold your attention in your hands for a while, the sense of aliveness will intensify...

Then go to your feet, keep your attention there for a minute or so, and begin to feel your hands and feet at the same time. Then incorporate other parts of the body--legs, arms, abdomen, chest, and so on--into that feeling until you are aware of the inner body as a global sense of aliveness."

Practice this exercise to get a feel for the energy in your inner body. When you know and recognize that feeling, you can call upon it anytime you want to feel peaceful and happy. For me, the chest or heart area is where I can feel it most easily as it is more intense there.

Inner Body Awareness and Running

Practice feeling your inner body during a run. It brings with it a tremendous feeling of joy and aliveness. You are accessing your source of life energy and enhancing your running experience simultaneously. You can access this energy anytime you want to feel the indescribable joy of running.

Inner Body Awareness and Running

As you focus and feel your inner body while running, you will be relaxed and free of tension. Running will be easier, more enjoyable and you will be less likely to develop pain or injuries when you access the energy available in your inner body. 

Meditative running can help you run injury free!

Slow Down the Aging Process

"If you inhabit the inner body, the outer body will grow old at a much slower rate, and even when it does, your timeless essence will shine through the outer form, and you will not give the appearance of an old person." -- Eckhart Tolle

Placing focus on the inner body is a form of meditation. Improved health and well-being, increased energy and reduced stress are some of the many benefits of meditation. If you are experiencing better health and less worry and stress, it will show in your appearance. You will look younger.

Become an Active Listener

Are you a good listener? If you have ever attended a generic skills course, a common topic is how to become an active listener rather than a passive listener. 

Try to feel your inner body when you are listening to someone. An active listener listens with their whole body or their inner body.  Try it the next time you are struggling to stay focused during a conversation. Your conversation skills will be vastly improved.
