Resistance can be a physical holding, tightening or clenching. It can be a shallow breathing pattern: shorter duration, and only into the chest region. It might be an agitation, or discomfort in your physical body, pulling at clothes, bopping knees or tapping nails.
When we can slow down, even slightly, we reduce emotional reactivity and increase our internal awareness of how we’re being, feeling and what we’re needing. When we feel more attuned to ourselves, we can attune more to others, and relate to them with more authenticity, vulnerability and connection.
